He should end his career in New Jersey Devils. Only for 1 game.

I like also this name - Colton Yelllow Horn. He is not in NHL, but in a few years...

And in Czech 2. league is one guy, his name is Jiří Jebavý. That is a really bad name. It is something like (please Admins don't delete it, its true) Jiri ****ed.

Yeah, his fame is based on a fake Someone mentioned Ziggy Palffy, that's actual mistaken too. Ziggy is just nickname of Žigmund [Shigmund or so], oldfashioned, but quite common name.

Reijo Routsalainen
Zarley Zalapsky

I would be aware of this line too
Tootoo - Ruutu - Cheechoo

I always wanted Jarret Stoll and Jared Staal to end up on the same line in Toronto or Montréal or something, just to screw with Bob Cole's head. The Sedin-Sedin-Sundin line was fun for a while.

I guess Zarley Zalapski is leading at the moment.

And I remembered one more name - Reijo Ruotsalainen

The Wings had a prospect named Robin Big Snake. Imagine the jersey sales if he'd made it...

I always wondered about his name, so strange. Like "Zele-puck-in"

And what about Defence -

Lubomir Visnovsky
Vitaly Vishnevski
Dmitri Vishnevsky
Igor Vishnevsky
Ivan Vishnevsky

and lets say the sixth man will be Albert Vishnyakov

Mike Zigomanis, Wayne Van Dorp, Cale Hulse and Sergei Krivokrasov (sp) are some of my favorites. Nba in the last 20 years or so have had some good ones also
