Some examples

Antero Nittymaki = Nittoumaki

In Finnish, Y is pronounced like U
(BTW that's pretty silly to add NNE. Cleary stretching things for nothing)



In russian ж is pronounce zheh, like the S in pleasure
(guinne/gin, nique/nik : try again)


Е = Ye
Again I've never heard no one adding a O in Malkin.


Ковальчук : у is pronounced like U in russian
Should be more like Yleeha actually

Naslund is mispronounced


If the 2nd O have an accent (ó), then it's Vokawn. Don't know how he write it in Czech though. It think it's actually a ''O'', then it should be Vokoun. Pierre probably got that one wrong.

I could go on..

linguists are usually smart and useful, this guy is right... there's a difference between Maxeeeme Laperriere and Maxeeme OOOOOlet and trying to get the real pronunciation in the respective languages...

I'd like to know where the thread starter got the idea to start yet another discussion about this nonsense... Yes, Pierre sounds a bit like a precious second rate circus MC, but at least he genuinely tries to get the names right... And for the record, the french way to say russian names is to pronounce F instead of V... anybody ever heard of a certain number 79 for the habs? Yeah say his name in a french context in your head..

Think "fight", then say Streit.

In German one pronounces the second vowel. Einstein is an example, you pronounce the second vowel.

They play in north america, i really have no problem that they "americanize" their names. I dont really care how Kovalev is pronounce in russian, i read his name KO-VA-LEV, thats how i spell his name. I dont think the player cares.

In french, its Francis BOU-YON, but the anglophone will call him Francis Bou-Yonne, nobody will go crazy because they dont call it correctly.

Dear Nobak from the internet,

Sorry I put an "s" at the end of Carlo Colaiacovo's first name. My point was the pronunciation of his last name and he's a leaf so who cares anyway

Regards,

Anybody can barely prononce this name Just try after a couple of beers

The same with the russian names. Yeah, I know its quite difficult.


I like the way how some prononce Kostitsyn's name. Reminds me smth chinese -
Kos-tsi-tsin. High chance to break ya tounge.

In russian, Kovalev should be prononced as "Kavaleuf" (similar with "Lafleur" - fr. "eu").
"M-A-rkov"
"GrabOfski"
"KastItsin"
"FEUdorof" (the same french "eu")
"SEUmin" (Semin)
"AvEchkin" (Ovechkin)
etc.

I'm friends with a couple of his cousins and they say Jor-jez, and I call them Jorgy not Gorgy or Gore jez
