Saw this at the NHL Store on 6th Avenue.  I mean, it's the NHL and the Devils so it wouldn't shock me if one hand doesn't know what the other is doing.  Nevertheless ...

If Cammy wants to wear 13, let him wear 13. What if he feels the number brings him good luck? Lou's superstitions shouldn't be more important than his. Not when it comes to stuff like that.

Could also mean we currently do not have a guy wearing #13, just saying.

 

Anyway, if Cammi wants 13, give it to him

In the Episode of «Your canadiens» Mike explain that number 13 is everywhere in his life. Good and bad memories. Personnal memories too.

 

You can Watch it here... (go at 8 minutes if you want to know more about the number.)

As for lou's quote... im not sure what it means. Does it mean we wont allow him to wear it or nobody wear it in our team so he will have it.

It's a stupid tradition anyway. They should let guys wear whatever available numbers there are.

Signed, a guy whose hockey number was 13 as a kid.

Really wish Lou would just drop his whole jersey number obsession. What's the difference between 35 and 36? are numbers 36-99 really so tainted in his view?

There's a lot of buildings that have a 13th floor. That number I can at least understand. I also agree the rest of the numbers thing is dumb

This drives me crazy. If the building has over 13 floors, and you just call the 13th floor the 14th floor, that takes away the supposed jinx of it being the 13th? It's still the 13th, no matter what you call it. If you built a 13th floor and then sealed it so that it was empty and the elevator didn't stop there,
I would understand.

Maybe I'm in the minority here and maybe it's because in just used to it, but I like the no high numbers thing. I think it goes along well with the team first philosophy.

I'm surprised Lou finds 13 unlucky considering he is an italian american.

Lou has made exceptions for stars wearing high numbers. He *may* make an exception for Cammalleri but I doubt it. More likely he ends up 31 or something.

my guess is they've just done it like that as it's before training camp and that's the number he normally wears, nor have they consulted the Devils about it either.

 

In terms of team philosophy and numbers, we will know once training camp starts.

He wouldn't let Ryder wear #73 and look what kind of season he had. Let 'em wear the numbers,  Lou!

He asked for a 13 but they drew a 31...

 

That brought back a lot of memories.
