Didn't Hedberg wear #1?


And Kinkaid.

How come no one wears #1 anymore? I can't think of any player on any team wearing #1.

Luongo comes to mind. I think it's retired on a lot of teams these days. A lot of great goalies wore that number.

Wait.... Kinkaid wears #1.

In Topic: Is This the Patty Elias Swan Song Season?

I think yesterday changed a lot of things in the head of Elias. He doesn't necessarily like change with Lou gone if Toronto came after him for leadership before the start if the season he would go. Lou might try that move. Shannahan knows Elias and what he brings.After that it depends on this coming season. If he is playing well then at the deadline the Devils would like what he could bring and Patty might like the competition so it would be a rental move. If he wants another year after that he could come back to the Devils . Lots if options for him to consider. As far as linemates for Patty he likes chemistry best moving him around is good for him so it's up to Hynes to get him the linemates he us comfortable with he has his best shot at producing for the Devils.

 

Elias' quotes seem to say he wants to be in Jersey. 

 

"Obviously, this will be the last year of my contract, so I want to do well, I want to play well and I want to have fun doing that. So, we'll see. I'm hoping it's going to be for the whole year with the Devils.”

Elias likes the idea of possibly being a mentor for first-round pick Pavel Zacha, a fellow Czech.

“I could,” he said. “I have to play well, so they think that I can do that for maybe a couple more years.”

What I expect in tomorrow's news feed : Cam Janssen signs 7 year contract with Maple Leafs.

I think the no #13 thing may stick. There was speculation that no #13 was out of respect of McMullen not wanting one. I don't know how true it is, but it would explain why there was no #13 even before Lou.
