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.

If that's the case, just assign everyone a number under 35 and don't let them choose at all. Letting guys "keep" their number only if it's under 35 is arbitrary and stupid.

And letting #22 sign with the team and keep his number but telling #44 he has to change unless he's famous does not do anything toward enforcing a "team first" philosophy. It actually kind of says the bigger your ego and your profile, the more privileges you get.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

They shouldn't. What should count is if they can contribute to the success of the organization.
