not bad...

as for European roots... 200 years is not a history, it's merely a couple of generations ;) and those couple of generations later, all Americans are grandgrandgrand(...)children of some Europeans. or Asians...

According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Holmstrom and Franzen seem like a couple of meatballs.

Don't worry, he can pronounce all the Canadian player names.

Though, is Sami Lepisto Italian? I know he's Finnish...but Italian-Finnish? Lepisto doesn't even sound Italian to me.

Lepisto is Finnish, not Italian. His name would be pronounced with emphasis on the first syllable, like LE-pisto, so it no longer sounds Italian anyway.

Ya, as they have in the past as well!

Sergio Momesso

Paul & Gino Cavallini

not so sure if Mike Peluso is an Italian name though...sounds good.

Bring Fedorov Home For A Day!

 

He Needs To Retire A Red Wing.

 

When Gordie Leaves Us, the NHL MUST Retire The #9.

touche!

probably Van Biesbroeck in original version.

add to this: Van Massenho(e)ven, Van|der|Meer, Versteeg, Bouwmeester and.... Yzerman (modern version: IJzerman, iron-man :D )


speaking of all-star Polish team (we are better than Aussie, though not by a long shot :D )
Czerkawski
Oliwa
Wolski
Zolnierczyk
Sidorkiewicz
Konopka (that could be other Slavic, though)
