Hockey Pop Quiz - read 1st post!

Interesting question that was asked today on ESPN radio in light of the first games of the season......

Here's the challenge: Name all 30 coaches of the NHL squads.

I'm sure some guy will ruin it all for the rest of us and google the answer, but please try to be honest. I found I couldn't name more than 7 which is kind of embarrassing! But feel free to start ringing off the names until the one guy ruins it for all...

Didn't cheat. It's sad that I know that many. I know what three of the coaches (VAN, ATL, OTT) look like, but I can't remember their names at the moment.

John Anderson is in Atlanta. Interesting that no one can think of Minnesota's coach, and they're a divisional rival! I can name the Wild GM though--Chuck Fletcher, son of the recent placeholder GM in TO for Burke.

Sometimes at night, to help myself fall asleep, I'll recount mundane facts. Often these center on hockey. Just the other night I was going over coaches. It got a little cloudy at the end as I started to drift off, but I don't think I got 20. Looking at some of the ones I missed I feel pretty sheepish about forgetting them, but a few were beyond my knowledge (Minnesota, Atlanta, Ottawa, NYI).

And now I'm very sleepy.

I had to ponder for a moment whether I wanted to just ruin this in the first reply...then I decided to be a good guy and just say naw, I don't really feel like it.

And no, I don't know all thirty coaches but I can almost guarantee you that nobody on Espn's staff knows either. Without google that is. I have little to no respect for them as far as hockey knowledge.

When they had the show on ESPN, one guy got 23, another got 3, and I think the third guy got like 5.

3 is pretty pathetic. Especially for the guy running the sports show.
