Hi everyone! A Golden Knights fan converting from the Rangers.
I am in the process of figuring out whose number to get on a sweater. I am curious to see/hear everyone's thoughts on the numbers they are wearing.
Some of the things going into my thought process:
1.) Don't want to get hit by the jinx of getting a number and then seeing the player traded, leaving in free agency (unless the player is making a big impact on the team).
2.) Looking at the way the individuals are playing the game, a top producer isn't necessary if the player "plays the game the right way."
Some of the players I am thinking about are: Deryk Engelland (can't go wrong with the hometown hero); Oscar Lindberg (like me, a convert from the Rangers, and I like his game); Jonathan Marchessault, William Karlsson, Reilly Smith, or Nate Schmidt (I really like the way they play). Also I have one secret choice, a player that hasn't played much, but will be in the team's record books.
Anyone have any opinions? As I mentioned, I'd like to hear the thoughts that fellow fans used to make their decisions.
