The NHL's Most Interesting Name Final Bracket: (2) Larry Goodenough vs. (7) Fred Sasakamoose

New, comments

The final matchup of the Elite 8 is here as a beacon of mediocrity names comes up against, well, Fred Sasakamoose. At this point in time, it's tough to make convincing arguments for or against any of the remaining "contestants"; they're all pretty equally awesome. Whomever of these two advances, they'll have to face a formidable opponent in Peanuts O'Flaherty, so I feel for them. But that's not the task at hand, so let's get to it...

After the jump, have a look at the results for the #4 Zarley Zalapski vs. #5 Jeff Beukeboom matchup, in addition to the updated bracket.

The purpose of the vote, once again...

...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.

Rock the vote.
