Happy Halloween, people. Seems as if I frightened a few too many of you with last year’s costume, so here’s a few horrific-related NHL lists to help celebrate the occasion instead:

Jerry “King Kong” Korab
Stu “The Grim Reaper” Grimson

Pat “Little Ball of Hate” Verbeek
“Terrible” Ted Green
Doug “Killer” Gilmour
Dave “Charlie” Manson
Alf “The Embalmer” Pike
John Tortorella
Tie “The Albanian Assassin” Domi
Connie “Mad Dog” Madigan
Claudio Scremin
Link “The Missing Link” Gaetz
Glen Harmon
Danny/Ron Schock

Scariest hockey terms:

Scariest Horror Movie Titles Slightly Altered To Double As Hockey Movies:

I Know What You Did During The Last Collective Bargaining Agreement
Scammers 3: Bruce McNall, John Spano and Sanjay Kumar
Night Of The Living Dead: Air Canada Centre Edition
House Of Whacks
The Blair Betts Project
The Exercisist: Rod Brind’Amour

Scariest team in The Hockey News’ fantasy pool:

Mine! That’s right, as of today – and after picking 16th overall in our pool – I’ve finally ascended to my rightful spot in first place. And don’t ask web editor Edward Fraser (who was unfortunate enough to state publicly his team was better than mine) where he’s ranked right now. Let’s put it this way: if it weren’t for the shabby excuse for a team Art Designer Jamie Hodgson put together, Fraser would have nowhere to go but up.
