How about being innovative.   When I have to create an extra flight/truck at my airport job we just put an "A" behind it. 

So what about 29 McCabe and 29A pominville ?  :P

I like that McCabe gave up 29. He should. Shows respect. A Veteran and former Sabres captain should get his own number. Hopefully Jake will have his day.

19 is a better number than 29 anyways. Sabres results to date notwithstanding

This thread has me contemplating a number association thread.  List numbers and first player that comes to your mind.  Not sure how I'd pull it off with 99 numbers available tho.

They never played together here, but I'm willing to bet that they had some interaction when McCabe was around for prospect camps.  Like I said earlier, if McCabe wants this, then that's the end of the story.

Agreed. I was watching a clip from last year (from the Eichel thread), saw 21, and thought, "Stafford"?

I've got a Stafford slug jersey.  Not proud of it.  The only thing that could possibly make it worse is if it was a turdburger.

When the Sabres miss the playoffs in April, we will point to your failure to burn that monstrosity.

Even though he never wore that style uni, he should get "Wood" for the nameplate. ;)

Never a big fan of his, but hated the way the Knoxes ran him out of town for being the team's union rep.

I dunno, a classic blue with Titanic on it would be pretty awesome.
