Mustache-surface-area-per-games-played?

pnep - I think I might have found something you don't have in your database.

I was wondering which NHL franchise might have the greatest ratio of size of mustaches against total games played of all its players in franchise history.

There would be a major dominant factor here, related to era - since mustaches were the most prevalent in the 70s and 80s, teams whose tenures either started in that era or were limited to that era would have a significant advantage.

As well this puts new expansion teams (post-80s) at a disadvantage - Florida, Tampa, Columbus, etc. Though I think George Parros alone could put Anaheim in the top ten.

The team that I think would have the best shot would be the Vancouver Canucks.


Harold Snepsts - 781 games played.


Dennis Kearns - 677 games played.


Dennis Ververgaert - 409 games played.


Dave Babych - 409 games played.


Brent Sopel - 322 games played.


Garry Monahan - 287 games played.

I'd be hard pressed to find a team with a greater ratio of mustachioed representation.

Can you?

If they don't win the per games played category, at the very least the Islanders win the mustache-surface-area-per-Stanley-Cups-won contest.

Anaheim also had Randy Ladouceur to go with Parros.



Vancouver loses points for Nathan Lafayette growing this.....this thing during the '94 playoffs.



They gain it right back for this awesomeness.

I'm don't think Sopel has a mustache in that picture, I think he just ate a box of chocolate crackers.

Yeah, Sope-on-a-ropel is just a dirtbag. No 'stache points for him.

You need to adjust the mustaches for each era. The dead-mustache era of the 90's would need to be adjusted to the ratio of mustaches over the norm. Also you must find out the size of the mustache over a replacement player's 'stache. Otherwise these stats are meaningless.

I think the player's size should be taken into account. Its one thing for a big guy to have a big 'stache, but I think shorties like Ian White deserve special considering for the disproportionate size of their 'staches.

Right, that's why this is awesome:



Garth Boesch, 40's Leafs. That's a good 50% of the league's entire mustache volume in that era. Now that's mustache dominance, gentlemen.

Precisely.

I predict that if he played in the fast-paced mustache growing 80's he may have a mustache similar to this one:

The Caps have had some pretty phenomenal mustaches over the years. It's funny too cause if you look at our retired player banners at Verizon, 3 of the 4 are sporting pretty awesome 'staches. Almost looks like a 70s porn star convention up there in the rafters.

If we're going historical, you have to mention Ching Johnson. He might have been the pioneer of the mustache in hockey.

Dan Bain, father of the hockey mustache, scoffs at that barely-noticeable thing on Johnson.

I'll see your Dan Bain and raise you a James Creighton. It doesn't get any more old school than this (literally).

Looks to me like you gave us Telly Savalas.



Or possibly Hungarian communist leader of the 1950s, Matyas Rakosi.

Is it me, or does Dennis Kearns look like a klingon? Perhaps I should put this in the lookalikes thread?

I was pulling for Matt Maccarone to make the Rangers this year. He had a Fu Manchu in training camp that couldn't be denied! Here are some pics, unfortunately I couldnt find any with the full Fu Manchu going on.
