Should Alex Goligoski change back to number 13?


Since Billy G. is not on the team, and barring his unlikely return to the Pens this offseason, should Alex Goligoski change back to number 13?

His numbers do not vary too much from the 08-09 season to the 09-10 season. I can point out that 44 of his 45 games he played in 08-09 were before Guerin came, and before he switched his number. In 45 games in 08-09 he scored 0.44 PPG, in 09-10 0.54 PPG. While his goals per game in 08-09 were slightly higher at 0.13 VS 0.12 GPG, his assists were lower at 0.31 VS 0.42 APG.

When I had this idea, I thought I remembered him having a very good year in 08-09 and a worse season in 09-10. Looking at the numbers including +/- he actually played better this past season. I guess I heard way too much of the "trade Goligoski" talk and maybe it influenced me. Poor GoGo, our lil scapegoat.

All in all, there is not much difference in his on ice performance since he changed numbers, I just want to know what you think? What number should GoGo wear next year?
