I'm guessing that having had four days since Nieds Night, they moved the banner(s) down to their permanent spot next to 4 and 3. Can anyone who was there last night verify? How'd they look all together? I'm kinda surprised I haven't seen any pics of them yet.

A friend of mine posted a photo of all three together on her Facebook, looks good. Font still looks wonky, but I'm wondering...could the weird font be because his name's too damn long to fit comfortably on the banner with the regular font? Would explain the weird looking R's anyway (though it offers no explanation for the weird 2).

I don't know why, but I'm surprised by the placement of the banners. It goes Neidermayer/Danyeko/Stevens. I would have thought Neids would be at the other end, in number order. I dunno why I notice these things, just...stuck me as a little odd. I'm sure there's a perfectly good reason for the order (probably a pain in the ass to move the other banners over or something).

I think it's just the order in which they were retired ... Stevens, Dano, Nieds. I think Monument Park in Yankee Stadium is ordered in the same manner.

they look fine - other than Nieds being wrong as has been discussed. i have a feeling they'll never change it.

correct.

Ah, makes sense. And I wouldn't know about that Yankee crap. :lol:

Well I see someone else shares the OCD gene

When I saw highlights of the ceremony, I noticed it, too.

Speaking of "that Yankee crap" ( :P ) and retired numbers, I always thought it was a cool coincidence that both franchises retired the same first two numbers in the same order: Gehrig & Ruth, Stevens & Daneyko.

UniWatch made mention ...

Devil is in the details: After the Devils retired Scott Niedermayer’s number the other day, several readers pointed out that the numerals on his banner didn’t match the team’s jersey number font. According to reader Steven Wojtowicz, this is just the latest manifestation of a trope that’s been driving him bonkers for years (and will probably start driving the rest of us bonkers now that he’s pointed it out): The 7 that the Devils use for retail purposes is different than the 7 that the players wear on the ice.

Odd, right? I’ll make some inquiries and see what I can find out.


Never noticed the 7 thing before, but it's dead on. The image provided does a decent job of showing the difference in the top right corner of the 7, but because Kovy tucks his jersey it doesn't really clearly show just how different the bottom is. This one is a little clearer. The bottom part on the retail jersey doesn't end nearly as far to the left as the game-worn ones do.

So 7 on the Nieds banner is actually closer to what he wore in his playing days than the the one on the sweaters they gave him at the ceremony -- both the framed one and the one he wore. The 7s on the mini-banners, the podium, all over the arena ... all wrong as well.

Did you notice the lack of a blubbering fool at center ice glomming for the spotlight?

Not about the banner, but question about something Doc said during the ceremony. Niedermayer won the Stanley Cup, World Cup, Memorial Cup, Olympic Gold, and World Jr Gold. Doc said he is the only player to win all 5. Was it just those 5, or was their a 6th Championship in that mix that I missed?

I don't think Doc listed it, but I believe he also helped Canada win the IIHF World Championship gold in 2004.

DIG the #27 Niedermayer banner is in place in the rafters right next to the #3 of Daneyko and the #4 of Stevens Tuesday night vs. the Rangers. I thought the #27 would be next to the #4 of Stevens but they have it as #27, #3 and then #4. I have pictures from Tuesday night but have not yet downloaded them.
