Best All-Time Player With A "Z" Name
This is a poll to figure out the greatest NHLer ever who had a last name starting with the letter Z.

Poll's not up yet, but it had better have Zarley Zalapski on it when it is. :D

I predict that you are a very happy man.

Germz 11-07-2008 02:52 PM

Tempted to go with Zalapski or Zelepukin because I loved their names, but I'll take Sergei Zubov.

Zetterberg's getting awful close though, with lots of hockey left to play.

Sergei Zubov

Sergei Zubov...in a year or two, Henrik Zetterberg.

Zubov is the most accomplished but Zetterberg could end up being the best.

Here's a list of Z's...


IfYouCantEtemJoinEm 11-07-2008 03:12 PM

Here's a preliminary list I made using hockeydb. Each player has played in at least 100 NHL games:

Miles Zaharko
Travis Zajac
Zarley Zalapski
Rob Zamuner
Greg Zanon
Richard Zednik
Larry Zeidel
Valeri Zelepukin
Richard Zemlak
Henrik Zetterberg
Rob Zettler
Peter Zezel
Alexei Zhamnov
Nikolai Zherdev
Alexei Zhitnik
Sergei Zholtok (rip)
Marek Zidlicky
Mike Zigomanis
Doug Zmolek
Rick Zombo
Sergei Zubov
Dainius Zubrus
Mike Zuke
Andrei Zyuzin

The italicized players are currently active in the NHL or Europe. The bolded players are the players I believe should be included in this poll. My choice right now would be Zubov. Maybe Zetterberg down the road. If you eliminate current players, I would go with Zhamnov, with Zezel as a close 2nd.

RabbinsDuck 11-07-2008 03:20 PM

I voted Zubov... Zetterberg could overtake him, but certainly not yet.

Nizdizzle 11-07-2008 03:33 PM

I think when all is said and done, Zubov over Zetts

Bruinsfan_37 11-07-2008 03:42 PM

Zubov right now,Zetterberg when he hangs them up!

BigKing 11-07-2008 03:49 PM


Must have been a simple error in omitting SideBurns from the poll.

daveskirtun 11-07-2008 04:16 PM

Zelepukin and it's not even close

Luongo2008* 11-07-2008 05:13 PM

Sergei Zubov

TimeZone 11-07-2008 05:25 PM


Modo 11-07-2008 05:41 PM

Right now, easily Zubov.

Warm Cookies 11-07-2008 05:50 PM

Zubov now, Zigomanis future.

Dions shoulder 11-08-2008 08:43 AM

If you just look at the past 10 years, it is far and away Andrei Zyuzin. Completely dominant in both ends of the ice.

DaveG 11-08-2008 08:52 AM

Zubov. But I get the feeling that Zetterberg will overtake him in the next 3 to 4 years.

Zigomanis is THE pre-season superstar though. None of these other guys have anything on him when the games don't really count.

decadentia 11-08-2008 10:00 AM

Zenon Konopka

only because I share the same name.

Edit: It's a shame this was for Last names

Wheatking 11-08-2008 10:23 AM

Zubov but when I was 7 or 8 years old and Valeri Zelepukin was an Oiler, all my friends were huge fans of his name just because to us it was Zele-puke-in. Ah...to be in grade 3 again :laugh: He was pretty good for an 11th round pick. A couple 20+ goal seasons and I think he hit 60 points once or twice.
