Ditto, I got 68 and forgot about Leino (!), Rivet, Butler, Kalinin, Gragnani... in other words I seemed to forget about the usual whipping boys. And I TOTALLY forgot that Torres ever played for the Sabres, which seems incredibly hard to believe. (especially since he really didn't do anything while he was here)

got 20 for the Canes. Had no idea LaRose had been on the team that long. Got most of the Cup-winning team even though I'd forgotten pretty much every dman except Kaberle and Commodore. What a forgettable d-corp that team had compared to other post-lockout Cup winners

Man, due to injuries and general crappiness the Lightning version is going to have 500 players!

The Chicago Blackhawks are up:

The team is also the new leader in amount of players used since the last lockout with 133, one more than Anaheim.

I'm averaging only ~25 per team. ~30 for Ottawa's divisional rivals. Have 50+ on the Oilers' one.

I'm sure if there wasn't a lockout, I'd do quite a bit better.

Thanks for creating these, they've been fun!

Just got 61 on the Blackhawks quiz. Harder than I thought, since I follow that team... Missed a few obvious ones like Huet and Daze. But got a few of the obscure ones like Kontiola and Parenteau. Took me about a full minute to spell Perreault correctly.

I have enormous trouble remembering names. If there wasn't a lockout I'm sure would double my scores. I'm just not thinking hockey during the days like I normally am. This is a painful reminder on how the brain puts things to rest when they're not on my mind.

I forgot Eric Daze played 1 game for the Hawks in 05-06. Thought he was gone long before that.

Chicago was definitely the toughest one yet. Lots of names from early post-lockout years that are easily forgotten.

Chicago seems to have a very small core in this, the amount that have played 100+ games seems to be lower than average.

I'm giving up at 21 though. Thankfully it'll be Colorado tomorrow and I can feel like less of an idiot.

Added a note in the first post, regarding players that have last names that contains spaces.

The Colorado Avalanche are up:

Right. If I get less than 100 on this Avalanche one I will be very disappointed.

I got 81 on the Avs quiz. Pretty happy with that, though there were a few I should've gotten like Mueller, Olver, Kobasew. Remembered the top games leaders up until Salei. So many players that I completely forgot played for Colorado.

McBackup should've been an acceptable equivalent.

I'm gonna flip that comment around and say: there are so many players I completely forgot... that played for Colorado.

Wow they really had a run there after the Sakic/Forsberg era that was full of forgetable players.

And we have a new leader again for amount of players used between the lockouts. The Columbus Blue Jackets:
