Hockey Quiz No. 7

A tip of Hound Central 4.0's roughed-up Cooper SK600 goes out to reader Steve G. for providing correct answers to all of the questions in Hockey Quiz No. 6.

As expected, the Finland or Suomi Finland logo proved a bit too easy, but it was the spelling of a few names within Hockey, Scrambled that tripped up earlier respondents. I'll make no apologies for placing an emphasis on accuracy.

And, like last month, I'll wait until month's end to post readers' entries.

Having said that, let's see how readers do with this quiz:

Name this logo

This, too, is probably recognizable to many old-school hockey fans. Just don't leap to conclusions, though. The image shows a very important clue and I'm a stickler for accuracy.

Hockey Word Association

Vincent Lecavalier =
Trade deadline =
Alexander Ovechkin =
NHL officiating =
Jonathan Toews =

Hockey, Scrambled

Stobia Mornest=
Masto Chenslinfam =
Drabenn Hansnaha =
Amda Rubish=
Kleba Lewhere =

Hockey math

With 49 games left in the season, Rusty Slowstride signed a prorated $2.2 million contract with the Green Bay Geezers. How much will Slowstride earn over his abbreviated season?

A.) $1,314,979.32
B.) $1,314,634.23
C.) $1,314,286.49
D.) $1,314,581.37

Answers to Hockey Quiz No. 6:

Name that logo: Finland or Suomi Finland
Hockey, Scrambled: Nikolai Antropov, Richard Park, Scottie Upshall, Fabian Brunnstrom and Daniel Paille
Hockey math: C. Michel Muchtoojung had earned $614,000 in bonuses through the All Star break. Math: 8 x $7,500 (for every goal) = $60,000 + 12 x $4,500 (for every assist) = $54,000 + $500,000 (lump-sum bonus for participating in an All Star Game event) = $614,000.
