Our second semifinal brings together a true Cinderella name in Fred Sasakamoose (the only opening round name to upset) and a very strong #3 seed in the cripplingly folksy-Irish name of Peanuts O'Flaherty. Can Sasakamoose manufacture another upset?
And just as importantly, what happened in our other semifinal, between double Zs and the venerable Reto Von Arx?
Wow, that's a Zalap to the face...
As usual, the focus of your vote...
...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.
Do it, do it.
