NHL's Most Interesting Name: Wrapping up the 1990s

If you focus on the center of the photograph for 20 seconds, then slowly back away you'll see an image of Bob Beers emerge in the crowd.

This is going to be a serious dogfight, methinks. With the 1990s coming to a close, we have 6 final candidates that all could easily take the 90s crown. Let's hope for your sake you can make the choice between Satan, beer, and double ZZ's...

Follow after the jump to vote.

The purpose:

...hockey history is chock full of names that can pique a person's interest, whether it's because it's unintentionally funny to the English sensibility (Petr Pohl), almost regal (Normand Rochefort), or lends itself to entertaining wordplay (Darius Kasparaitis). The criteria for our 'most interesting names' is a bit loose, in that the name can strike you as any one of the above descriptors, or all of them, but ultimately you are going to vote on the name that 'strikes' you the strongest.

The six contenders:

  • Bob Beers - The rare alcohol reference cannot go overlooked.
  • Darius Kasparaitis - Nor can hockey's first disease.
  • Miroslav Satan - Okay smartypants, so it's pronounced "Shuh-tan", stop ruining it for everyone else.
  • Parris Duffus - Goes by the nickname "Hipster."
  • Hnat Domenichelli - I get it, the last name is Italian, but what the hell is the first name?
  • Zarley Zalapski - Creator of the "Zalap shot."

Exercise your right.
