Penguins Jersey # Sudoku

Postby FLPensFan on Tue Sep 01, 2020 10:01 am

A little something different/fun to get away from the roster talk:

Stealing this from The Athletic, and keeping it Penguins specific. What is the best 6 man unit (3 forward, 2 defense, 1 goalie) you can put together in a sudoku format? If you've never played sudoku, it's a puzzle game, where the object is to create rows/boxes that use each number 1-9 only once.

So for this game/challenge, create a 6 man unit (3 forward, 2 defense, 1 goalie) where the numbers 0-9 are used in jerseys only once. Two examples who might help further understand....Mario Lemieux is ineligible, because his number was 66, so he'd be using the number 6 twice, which is not allowed. A second example...if you choose Crosby(87), you aren't going to be able to use Malkin (71, shares 7 with Crosby) or Jagr (68, shares 8 with Crosby).

I'll be a little lax with the rules and say that, you CAN use rare, limited use jersey numbers (ie, Ron Francis wore #9 for a short time here, before going back to his normal #10). If you want a little extra help, this link has a history of all Penguins jersey numbers. Still up to you to build a sudoku-format team: https://pittsburghhockey.net/penguins/uniforms-overview/all-time-uniform-numbers

Here's my 1st attempt:

Forwards: Malkin(71), Jagr(68), Guentzel(59)
Defense: Niskanen(2), Hatcher(4)
Goalie: Murray(30)

Paul Martin is too good for that team. Maybe you should have went with Rod Buskas. :lol:

Buskas was a bit before my time being a fan, but yeah, I see what you mean with him.
