They completely lost control as the guy used the name about 8 times.

Great thread. So many favourites mentioned already...

...but I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Per Djoos ('Pear Juice') yet.

In Pierre's defence though, many times ive heard him explain why he pronounces it weird, sometimes the players even request such pronounciation but he doesnt explain this to his viewers every single time. the latest example i can think of is Vokoon why he pronounces "Vos Cones" lol.

Is that why he called Kovalev "Kovalyef" for about a year?

That would be closer to the Russian pronounciation, yeah.

Whilst we're on the topic of pronoucing names, what is the proper way to say Kostitsyn,
Kos-TIT-syn or Kos-TEET-syn? Depending on what you're listening to they pronounce it both ways :S

The best name in the NHL is Ersberg, period.

For appropriate names, I always thought that Garth Butcher had a great name for a stay at home, in your face D. And a junior goalie in Niagara Falls I believe around 1990. Roch Belley. Take your best shot. You can't hurt Roch Belley.
Wow I forgot all about Roch Belley. I remember watching him play. He was eventually replaced in net by Manny Legace.
