No, I'm not getting my name put on a jersey. A while back, I wrote this post (opens in new window) about my replica Preds sweaters. Well, since my birthday is nearby, I've already established some useful birthday cash to use towards the project. I've decided to start with my 98 Preds home jersey (that's white for our newer/younger fans out there). For fun, I thought I'd make this a poll. My list is below, but feel free to add your own in the comments.
First, my "requirements". Since this is from the first season, I want someone who contributed during the 98-99 season. This means Legwand is out (played in the last home game only). So here's who I'm thinking:
Fitzgerald : Team Captain. Seems fitting.
Ronning : A favorite of mine. Didn't start on the team, but joined up later if I remember correctly.
Walker : Another favorite original Pred. I just realized some of these are not very deep. :)
Krivokrasov : Leading goal scorer first season. All-star rep. Negative: difficult name.
Dunham : First goalie.
Timonen : Probably one of my all time favorite Preds. May be the leader at this point in my mind.
So that about does it. Vote below, share memories, flame on, etc. Do me one favor; if you choose "other" and that player is already listed in the comments, PLEASE "rec" the original post. You can add a reason as a reply if you'd like.
Who should be forever immortalized on my '98 Preds home sweater?
