Thought about this today and it made me laugh.

Any update on whether or not Babs is still the only person in the world who doesn't know how to pronounce his name correctly?!

I heard him pronounce Khabibulin once as Ka-bibb-you-lynn.

Also the way he says Hudler makes it seem like there's about four Os in his name.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!

I'm sure Don Cherry can't pronounce Filppula. I recall him saying "Filapov" once, probably thinks he's russian

Unless its Smith, Brown or Jones, Don Cherry cant pronounce it but you'd think after having a guy on your team for 6 years, Babs would learn how to say Fil's name correctly!

Everytime I hear someone say his name it's pronounced different. I've heard some good ones that make me raise an eyebrown and laugh.

One of the old presenters of the NHL over here used to call him Filler-piller. He was from Vancouver, make of that what you will.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

He's a border line grammar retard. Every time I hear him say so-and-so played "good" instead of "well" I kind of cringe in a subtle way - and I ain't no grammar police. I don't know he just seems pretty dumb - not GWB kinda dumb - but close....
Are you kidding? Block you? And miss watching you stumble around the forum looking for an argument like a dog sniffing butts? It would be like turning off a bad episode of Jerry Springer. You know you shouldn't be watching, but you just... can't... help... it...

Well, she was from Detroit, but I'm pretty sure she's older than they are.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

or maybe that is the correct way of pronouncing it? Maybe he asked Val exactly how is it pronounced and that is what he told him....Nobody is worse than Budd Lynch. Period.

If thats the same thing I am thinking of, it was kinda crazy. He completely butchered a couple names and then just went silent for like 10 full seconds. I honestly though he had a stroke for a second there...
