Ehrhoff was always mispelled when he played for us.
Davison was always spelled Davidson.

Jannik Hansen - Hanson (I've seen this one on this board way too many times)

True.

I can't comprehend why fans of the team don't have the decency to learn to spell names of their own players
Kessler, Hanson, Hodson, Bieska or someone else and just add (sp?) at the end. That's just wrong!

Edler - Elder

Because English and Norwegian have different rules of pronunciation.

It's kinda funny how you guys pick Russian names for this, as there isn't a correct way to spell a Russian name with the Latin alphabet.

In Sweden we spel Ovechkin "Ovetjkin", and so on...

Feminism will be outlawed. Mostly because it's a backwards idiotic viewpoint that doesn't serve any real progressive purpose.

I was thinking the same. In finnish Ovie is spelled Ovetskin, Kovy is Kovaltsuk and I don't even want to remember how we spelled Mariusz Czerkawski here...

I don't know about misspelled names man but how'd you like to be NY Islanders announcer Howie Rose trying to keep Mark Streit and Brian Strait straight when they are paired on Defense as they are quite often...that'd drive me nuts. haha.

I actually think they got the two mixed up here the other day on NHL Tonight when they talked about Strait's leg injury. They said NYI has to make it work without the services of their 35 year old veteran d-man...
