Martin Broduer.

He's been in the league forever.
Maybe the greatest goalie of all time and still, people can't spell his name.

My most annoying is when McGrattan is spelled with an O, as in McGratton. There is no O!

Am I the only one that doesn't get annoyed by misspellings? So what if someone gets a player's name wrong?

The only one that actually annoys me at all is people spelling Mike Fisher's name "Fishcher"

That's like if somebody tells you their name is Alexander and you go "A-l-e-k-s-a-n-d-r?" WTF!

I chose Stall, but really, the most annoying thing for me is when people say loose instead of lose. It leads to some majorly weird sentences when you don't realize when they meant... but that's not hockey related.

Stall etc. By far.

I would also say that "Simon Gagner" is more annoying than "Sam Gagne".

well ziggieluc, to me it's only really annoying when the thread starter messes it up -especially in the trade board...I mean if the thread starter can't spell the name right (of the team or players) then they really have no right to be making threads just to start **** between fanbases.

Definitely "Stall" since there's three of them and they're mentioned so often.

"Toews" still gives many people fits. "Towes" is pretty annoying.

Fischer.

My god, he's not Czech. This one occurs more than Vishnovsky or Gagne.
