In ESPN’s NHL Power Rankings this week, the Worldwide Leader ponders the trade deadline future of Lightning defenseman Don Boyle, who, while perhaps not as valuable as Lightning defenseman Dan Boyle, still looks like he can be an asset to Cup contenders looking to add another guitar to their lineup or get help designing a Geocities site.
Yes, I know that this is most likely just a typo, but 1) How often do you see names of NBA or NFL players misspelled on ESPN, ever, even by one letter? and 2) I caught this at 6:30 pm Wednesday and as of 2:15 am Thursday, it hadn’t been corrected. If an MLB article referred to D’Backs pitcher “Don Haren,” there’d be 10,000 comments about it on the site within minutes and whoever posted it would be fired and/or transferred to NHL Columnist duties.
Regardless, I refuse to believe that ESPN just doesn’t care about the NHL.
