Gary Thorne's Mispronunciations

There are tons of them in nhl 11 so I thought I'd make a thread about it. Some of them are kind of funny

I'll start off with a couple

Brandon Prust - Brandon Proost
James van Riemsdyk - James Van reems-mick

Probably the most annoying part of the game. The Proost one is brutal.

It bugs me how certain team names are pluralized when they shouldn't be.

I.E. "Edmonton's is looking to tie it up"

Derek Joslin = Yoh-slin

Does anyone notice that they even use the wrong name sometimes too?

I was doing a Flames Be A GM, and at least half a dozen times per game, Backlund was getting called Boedker.

I've definitely heard these a few times .

Surprised he pronounces Marty St. Louis' name correctly.

Side-note on the voice acting: I play NHL Slapshot so I'm not sure what it's like in NHL 11 but when I created my own player, my name being Ryan, I picked the name they will use for voiceovers as Ryan (referring to the last name of Bobby Ryan) expecting I would just hear Ryan all the time but every time I get a goal it's "Bobby Ryan!!!"

You'd think after doing years of these voice overs, they would have all the pronounciations (or a good chunk of them) perfected.

Whenever a Sedin touches the puck he always says "Daniel".
