http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/news/story?id=2761756

they've got a picture of Hossa as Kobasew, looks like some of us will be happy to see him shipped off..

Wow...

how do you confuse Hossa with Kobasew? Think ESPN knows something we don't? Is Renney just showcasing Hossa? The plot thickens...

Just a simple typo. Hossa's picture ends with the extension 2580.jpg, while Kobasew's is 2850.jpg. Someone screwed up the number and thus it shows Hossa.

Sure it was a typo with the file name extensions, that;s obvious, but doesn't a company like ESPN have people who edit their pages? Unreal.

i was just gonna post that, good catch guru

personally i think this is a weak trade for the bruins, but i guess they felt pressured by the fact its pretty much a given Stuart is walking

Maybe, but one would assume somebody with an awareness of hockey would say "hey, wait a minute."

What's even more mind-boggling is it's STILL up there...

Yea, no big deal. Who cares if they don't get their job right? Nothing wrong with being a little dyslexic or not checking your work.

Like the time Homer was arrested for D.W.I. and Chief Wiggum mistakenly told Marge that her husband was found D.O.A.

It's a funny mistake, yes, but some of the responses in this thread make me scratch my head. We all make mistakes...no one's perfect, not even mighty ESPN.

Not saying I like the way espn treats hockey, but this is the kind of mistake you have to let slide.
