Default NHL Greatest Names Tournament (ESPN)

The Greatest NHL Name Bracket: Bronco Horvath, Hakan Loob, Jaromir Jagr and more (ESPN+ Article)

I think you need an ESPN+ subscription to get full access to article but the bracket is fun to check out. A few former Flames stand out.

The bracket

How can you not go with former flame double Z.

Not on the list but a few I recall from Flames past.

German Titov
Hnat Domenichelli
Rick Tabaracci

Jyrki Jokipakka is an all-timer. I'd rock his jersey with pride.

The first name that came to mind was Zarley. But after I opened the bracket I was reminded of Pear Juice. Man that made me laugh as a teen and still gives me a chuckle.

Ed Ward should be in this, as well as that Russian that the Devils selected this year in the first round Mukhamadullin

I'm happy Merlin Malanowski made the list. But no Jiri Bubla?

And Eddy Beers was robbed by Bob Beers.

Disappointed Cliff Pu didn't make the list.

That said I fully expect Cal Clutterbuck to win this, that is just a solid name.

Only played a hand full of games, but I always got a kick out of Bubba Berenzweig.

Loob, Zalapski and Hamrlik are contenders...

Clutterbuck has to be a favourite
