I was thinking about starting this poll (between Stall and Lindstrom) but I was afraid it would get closed right away and wasn't worth the time.

And the answer is probably Stall. At least the Lindstrom mistake allows for hilarious sarcastic remarks involving Joakim Lindstrom.

I'd say about 10% of posters and/or media spell Morrow's first name correctly.

what irks me the most is when people cant even spell the canadiens right. For gods sake people its MONTREAL CANADIENS NOT CANADIANS. Its kinda pathetic when people cant get it right. You should at least get the team names right if youre not gonna get the player names right. Would anybody spell the yankees with a c like yanckees or the bruins something like brooins, i mean cmon.....get it right!!

Misspelling of Staal for sure. Pacioretty will be one that will get people.

I don't care for propriety's sake, but if you ever need to use the search you'll miss things because someone can't bother spelling names right.

On my team, most commonly misspelled is Bouwmeester (with an infinite number of bow-beau-bou/mister-mesteer-meister etc combinations). Most mispronounced though, definitely Skrastins.

It's so minor, but Nicklas Backstrom (WAS, C) does not equal Niklas Backstrom (MIN, G) and it drives me nuts.

There are several in Montreal, and by our own fans...
  • Higgens instead of Higgins

  • Komisarik instead of Komisarek

  • Hamerlik instead of Hamrlik

  • George(s) instead of Gorges (Josh, not Laraque)

  • Laroque instead of Laraque

  • Tangay instead of Tanguay

  • Halek instead of Halak

'Stall' easily, mostly because there are so many Staal proposals.

The ones that I find extremely weird are when people mess up names like Brentt Bruns
