Test yourself (which player names do you recognize?)

Vote for the highest level where you recognize the player names.

The players above are currently under contract with a team in the NHL. My reasoning behind each level can be seen in the spoiler box below:

Spoil:
Level 1: Both key players in the NHL.

Level 2: Both quality depth players in the NHL.

Level 3: Both 4th liners in the NHL.

Level 4: Both NHL/AHL tweeners, who played a significant amount of games in the NHL last season. Edit: Both should have a good chance of being NHL regular this/next season...

Level 5: Both AHL veterans, who have been called up briefly to the NHL at least a couple of times, including last season.

Level 6: Both AHL players, who have been called up briefly to the NHL, but not during the last season.

Level 7: Both AHL players, who have had contracts with NHL clubs for several years, but have yet to play a single game in the NHL.

Level 8: Both currently in the ECHL and are likely longshots to make the NHL.

Level 9: Both players are fictional. So if your recation here was: "!#!#?!??#?", you're boss. Well done! =)

Nope, it's pronounced "Yeah-Nen-Said". Don't know where it origins from. Awesome name however, hopefully he makes the big league eventually

More like a 45/55 split between NHL'ers and AHL'ers (that are signed by NHL clubs).

On 2 way contracts. They only play in the AHL.

Goligoski, Erat, Korpikoski, Methot, Beleskey and Glass are all very much NHL'ers. Wingels played 33 games (+5 playoff games) for San Jose last year, Wyman played 40 games for Tampa Bay. I consider them half NHL'ers at this point. Byers, McDonald, Cliche and Drazenovic are AHL'ers, but have all appeared in the NHL and had contracts with several NHL teams for years. There's only four players in the poll that haven't played a single game in the NHL.

After Wingels and Wyman (level 4), the next level is going to be AHL call ups and emergency call ups. So what other NHL level would there be? Unless of course, I put in a easier level than the Goligoski/Erat one. But what's the point of that on a board full of hockey geeks? Especially in a year where a lot of people in here will follow AHL hockey...

Level 3 - Here in Boston we only get NHL games on TV and I can only make the occasional AHL game in Providence, maybe 1-3 a year. I don't get to see/hear/read much about any minor league stuff.

Level 6. If someone's played at any point in the NHL chances are I'll recognize the name. Once you get into the career minor leaguers that's where I'm done.

"Yen-en-sed" is what I always thought it was.
He's been looking pretty good since he joined Tsujimoto's training school this summer.

Level 4, after that I figured the rest were AHLers or even less than that and I wasn't half wrong.
