"Staal".

It's spelled Stall, dammit, I think it's unfair to Jordan to keep spelling his last name wrong.

I hate it when they spell it "er". It's "or".

The guy is one of the best ever, and people can't spell his name.

Yes "Federov" is a pretty bad one.

Jay Bowemester Bouermister Bowmeester Boumester Bouemeester etc etc probably deserves a mention for being misspelled so many times in so many different ways.

yeah, this one. how many seasons has he been in the league and people still can't spell it right?

Also, spelling Lidstrom's name "Lindstrom" at the awards ceremony for last season was about as annoying and embarrassing for the NHL as it gets.

Taveres/Tevares/Tavaras

IT'S TAVARES!

It also bugs me that people don't spell out "Grebeshkov" or "Ponikarovsky." It makes me think they don't know how to actually spell the name.

Nicklas "Lindstrom" ...

The other one that irks me is how some people spell Tavares. I've seen it spelled "Tavaras", "Taveres", "Tevaras" and "Teveres".

Stall, Federov, Lecavlier.

Maybe OT, but it's kind of annoying when some names are misspelled intentionally, just to bash on a player.

Stall by far.

How many brother's do they need before people spell their name right?

I can't believe how many people just can't get that name right.
