Unfortunately, yes. My guess is with the impending lockout, people are resorting to making threads like this due to premature hockey withdrawl. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel is one thing. Being told it's actually a guy holding a lamp midway through the tunnel just to throw you off is another haha


Unfortunately it might be a train.

Karlis Skrastins.

Never knew how to really pronounce his name.

Oh, and does Sven Butenschon ring a bell?

That's kinda disrespectful...

Jensen > Kassian
Gillis dropped the ball on the Hodgson trade.
If Kassian ever becomes a 30 goal scorer I will pierce my nipples.

I hope the mods are OK with this one. Warning it's a tad risque. If you're easily offended don't click.

I don't feel so good. It might be Kasparaitis.


What you should do is take a couple of Antti Laaksonen, you'll feel better in a couple of days.

Antti Niemi.
Antti Laaksonen.
Esa Tikkanen - always loved Tik's antics especially when he wore the "spaghetti plate"!

Finnish players seem to always have tough names.

former president of the World Anti-Doping Agency and former vice-president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) ....also was the chancellor of my university (McGill)

His name + the name of this book + the mysterious shaft being gripped by a hand is the all time funniest combination in my opinion
