Know Your NHL? Name Each Team Captain...

Postby BigMcK on Fri Jan 27, 2012 5:42 pm

How many team "C"'s can you name from each team? I failed hard (got 15 correct) and had to peek.

Anaheim:
Boston:
Buffalo:
Calgary:
Carolina:
Chicago:
Colorado:
Columbus:
Dallas:
Detroit:
Edmonton:
Florida:
Los Angeles:
Minnesota:
Montreal:
Nashville:
New Jersey:
New York Rangers:
New York Islanders:
Ottawa:
Philadelphia:
Phoenix:
Pittsburgh:
San Jose:
St. Louis:
Tampa Bay:
Toronto:
Vancouver:
Washington:
Winnipeg:


The answer is a Wikipedia link away if you get stuck. I got Anaheim, Boston, Calgary, Carolina, Chicago, Columbus, Detroit, LA, Ottawa, PHX, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Tampa, Washington. Philadelphia shocked me because my guess was correct.

Good luck, and have fun -- since there's no NHL games on TV tonight.

I missed Anaheim, Colorado, Edmonton, NJ, NYR, NYI, STL, and Winnipeg. I should have known the divisional teams and St. Louis since we just played them.

I just recently came across this quiz: http://www.sporcle.com/games/apipher/11-12nhlgrabbag

If anyone's up for the challenge. I blanked on two of them (Colorado's GM and Minnesota's GM) for some reason...but 118/120 isn't terrible I guess...

I didn't do too bad but there is no excuse for missing two teams from your division. I missed Buffalo, Colorado, Edmonton, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Winnipeg. I also forgot to specify which Sedin was the C.

The hardest on that list has to be Winnipeg.

I am surprised that Stephen Weiss is not the Captain in Florida. He should be.
