Who is this "Lappy Air" guy?

Mark Lee butchered Maxime Lapierre's name all game last night. You'd think that during a commercial break Pednault could have given him a few pointers on how to pronounce it.
At least the CBC is covering the team again, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Not as bad as the MSG guys with "Koval-off". The guy played there for 9 years. And "Ghetain" Latendresse. It ruins the comeback DVD.

I know its different from the French pronounciation but how is that so wrong?


Pierre in English is commonly pronounced as Pee-Air so how is Lee at fault here?

Lappy Air could be a new nickname or Air Laps.

I don't know why people think the pronunciation is that bad. It bothers me much more to see people write Georges instead of Gorges and loose instead of lose. At least they're trying. Lappy-Air seems okay in english, seems like the right way to say it.

Actualy it's not that bad, if you some french skillz you should pronouce it like the word "Hier" that's the only indication i have for you.

I noticed he struggled through Pacioretty's name also.

He pronounced the 'i', but that's just me being picky.

Umm, I speak both French and English fleuntly and I say "Lappy-Air" too. Well, maybe "Lap-E-air," but umm, aside from the funny spelling on paper if you say Lappy-Air fast that's his name, I'm moderately sure.

Anyway, I could be wrong. Perhaps a Francophone poster can chime in with the exact pronunciation? Regardless, this is being awfully picky, because short of Laperierre, I've never recalled hearing it any other way.

La pi hier (yesterday) but i dont see a real problem by pronoucing it Lapi Air since "hier" is dificult to pronounce for a english speaker.

Lappy-air is not so bad but it's supposed to be pronounced La-pjer. I don,t know if you can see the difference but there is one!! Hope this helps!!
