Put numbers on the front of jerseys

Although it is just a small thing in the large world of hockey, teams putting player numbers on the front of jerseys is a big assist to fans.

Sure, we can spot our own team's players by the way they skate, but it helps identify players with the visiting teams. This is especially true on television where the cameras usually don't follow a player long enough to see his back.

Nice effort Dallas, but move the front number towards the shoulder, because having it on the stomach isn't cutting it. I hope the whole league mounts front numbers.
