New, comments

It has come to this...Reto versus Peanuts, Beukeboom versus Sasakamoose...in other words, it's time to take off the gloves and vote for the NHL's Most Interesting Name. Using voting percentages to determine our rankings, here is our final Bracket:

Nhl_s_most_interesting_name_bracket_medium

At some point in time, we knew some of these great forces would collide. Starting from the top, we begin with a Hall of Fame Bruin and a...Swiss. When voting, keep in mind the goal of the tournament:

...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.
