Try and name the 150 players. I got 55, which was a disappointment considering I knew 95% of the people.

I got 49 and was like.. "HOW COULD I HAVE FORGOTTEN [assorted name here]!!". I would have gotten 50 if I could spell Mojzis' name...

111. I cannot believe some of the names I pulled out of my hat--Doug Bodger, Herbie Vasiljevs, Justin Kurtz and Mike Stapleton were probably the most obscure. Most obvious misses were Mogilny and Aucoin; a host of recent depth/bit players that I probably should have gotten as well. Fun quiz!

68 for me. The difficulty is when put on the spot there's a lot of guys you do actually know that just slip by you. There was a good 25 or so names that I should have got, but just slipped by me.

74. Klatt was the highest-GP one I missed, Pettinger from the current roster. Funny how you try to list off the last season or two methodically, but stuff like "Tommi Santala" and "Ryan Bonni" just pops into your head and throws your mind off-track.

77 for me...

Odds things to think about:

Who you typed in first: Chubarov

Who you forgot (from highest number of games down): Krajicek, Aucoin, Bernier, Bulis

Players with lowest # of games remembered:
Smith, Noronen, Mojzis, Hansen

First player in was Morrison. Highest games played that I forgot was Mogilny and Aucoin. Lowest games remembered was guys like McVicar, Leeb, Komarniski and a couple of others like that.

Ouch - 60.

Highest oversight: Chubarov.
Most shameful oversight: Bernier (!)

I couldn't get Lee Goren and Mike Weaver out of my head, but I couldn't remember their names to save my life.

Keith Carney - I was like who was that D man we picked up and he looked like Bertuzzi and played like crap, its Keith something lol....I may have spent too much time trying to remember his name.
and jason Jaffray after I got brad moran i kept trying to think of secondary scoring solutions we tried but I couldn't for the life of me remember his name...oh and Kris Beech but it was doubtful I would have remembered that with any amount of time.

Did any one get Marc Bergevin? He's my favourite forgotten player.

I got 81.

Highest miss was Donald Brashear with 170 games. Most shameful miss was Mats Sundin, even if he only played 41 games.

Pretty impressed that I remembered Alfie Michaud and Martin Grenier though.

The first name I typed in was Sedin, and my highest miss from this year's roster was Nolan Baumgartner with 87 games.

I did! I was trying to remember all our deadline pick-ups after the Bertuzzi incident. Carney, Bergevin, Brown, Rucinsky and Sanderson I think. Or was Carney a different year?
