For the people mentioning misspelling of words rather than player names, I don't understand how people achieve this now days. Time to get a web browser with built in spell check tbh.

i had to because I'm such a terrible typist. I go to fast for my own good, then i read what i have typed and i say to myself, "what the **** did I just type?".

Another one: "worse" used for "worst" -- i.e., in a superlative sense rather than a comparative one.

e.g., "Toskala is the worse goalie ever!"

I'd have to say ThorTon. I don't know how many Joe Thornton jerseys I've seen that are misspelled like that!

When people states who the best defender in the history is, then spell it Orr - which isn't even remotely right.

It's L-i-d-s-t-r-o-m


Tad Nugent out of the everyone.

It's spelled Ted!!

That's what I'm saying, Tad!!?

Valtteri Filpulla instead of Valtteri Filppula.
Always makes me get a warning for noting down the misspelling being a certain reproductive organ with a dairy product in swedish...

Another vote for Broduer. It may be the most frequent mistake on these boards aside of Stall.

Sidney Crosby is often misspelled as Wayne Gretzky.

On a similar note something that annoys me is when announcers call Maxim Lapierre Maxim "Laperriere".

When someone spells Erik Christensen's name as Eric Christianson.

It's NOT a hard name to spell, and it's not like Staal/Stall, where the names sound the same. Christianson and Christensen sound completely different.
