Numbers Blunders
In what I consider to be quite a gaff, Canada Hockey Place is selling Russian Federation Evgeni Malkin jerseys with the number "71" emblazoned on the back and sleeves.  Why is that a problem?  Well, he's number "11."
Oops.

The only reason I even noticed this error is because I was watching Ilya Kovalchuk, and distinctly remember him being "71" out on the ice.

When I pointed all this out to an employee of the store, he pulled out a Kovalchuk tee shirt with the number "17," as if that pre-shrunk cotton tee was the end-all, be-all of omniscence and the guys wearing the sweaters on the ice were wrong.
