Hockey Contest!!! ---Closed

With the Stanley Cup going on, what better time to give away some cards?

But first, as with the soccer contest, I have to show some packs.



I'm not a hockey fan, so my expectation of recognizing names has been on a downward trajectory since NHL '94 on Sega.  I didn't recognize any of these four.


Goalie cards rock.  I recognize Chris Osgood.


Sharks are cool.  No idea who he is.


I got two Choice Reserve Maple Leafs.  That sentence makes no sense if it isn't capitalized.


If you aren't a hockey fan, you probably had no idea that is a Columbus Blue Jackets logo.  The "TM" in there really pisses me off.


Very nice card.  Topps baseball could learn a thing or two from this card.


I loved Collector's Choice Stick'ums when I was a kid.  These have a thicker backing, which is wonderful.


Last pack before we get to the contest, I promise.


Fantastic cards. I recognize all except Stillman.


Dainius Zubrus has the Championship Fever.  The best things for getting rid of that fever are Red Wings and LA Kings.  At least, that's what Zubrus found out the hard way.

Ok, contest time.


I've mentioned a couple of times that I loved NHL '94 for Sega Genesis.

All you have to do to win is guess my favorite player in NHL '94.

You may submit one guess per hour until someone gets it right.

If you guess correctly, you will win every hockey card I own, including a relic card of an NHL Hall-of-Famer.

By the way, is it one guess in each hour block (12-1, 1-2, etc) or is it that the next guess can't come until an hour after our previous one?

Spankee said...

1 guess per hour block.

Jagr was my second favorite...and he's also the only player from that game who is still active in the NHL!

I just got home from work and no one has it yet. I think it's time for a hint:

I could really go for some Swedish meatballs for dinner.

sorry lidstrom

Ulf Samuelsson.

nylander

Spankee said...

WE HAVE A WINNER!

Play at the Plate correctly deduced that the answer is ULF SAMUELSSON!!!

You could flat out destroy people with that dude.

PATP, I'll be contacting you to get you your prize shortly.

BTW Folks, when I said Jagr is my second favorite, that should have led you to the Penguins. PATP obviously caught this as he began guessing Penguins. He didn't guess LEmieux because I said "dig deep". Then, he used the Swedish hint to narrow it down to Ulf and Kjell Samuelsson, guessing Kjell first.

After that was wrong, Ulf was all that was left. Fantastic work!
