    The Long and The Short of It

    Create your six man units (3F, 2D, 1G) of current or former players for your team using the following criteria:

    • The first unit is the shortest last names in the history of your program.
    • The second unit is the longest last names in the history of your program.


    I'm pretty sure for North Dakota on the 'short' unit: (Scott) Dub will be at forward, (Mitch) Vig will be playing defense, and (Aaron) Dell is the goaltender.

    On the 'long' unit I foresee (Jacob) Bernard-Docker at one defense position and (Aaron) Schweitzer in net.

    Have at it.

    Make it a challenge? Fewest/Most letters gets to brag?

    RPI

    F Ens (Rick), Ens (Joe), Law (Barry) and several named Lee also. Let's not forget Donovan Ott although Smith got rid of him over the summer.
    D Foss (Jeff) and Goss (Brent) and lots more. I can't think of a 3.
    G Fox (Bob)
    That's 20

    This is harder.
    F Stoyanovich (Steve), Angers-Goulet (Matt), Angers-Goulet (Alex) assuming hyphens are OK. (And there is Riley Boooooooooourbonnais ) Is the St. of Jacques de St. Phalle allowed to be spelled out?
    D Salvalaggio (Bruno)., Burgdoerfer (Erik). Mike Prapavessis too, I can't think of a 12.
    G Constantine (Kevin)
    68
    Anyone think of someone else?

    Vig's defense partner? (Brian) Lee.

    And hyphenated last names count (see above).

    Rats. Correct. Didn't properly trim the trailing space which my length formula subsequently picked up. 68 but since hyphens apparently count it's 69.

    I thought that hyphenated names count, but the hyphen does not count as a letter. If they do count as letters, I get to 70, since I have two names listed with hyhens.

    I also assume that women's team members don't count. If they do, there is Nona Letuligasenoa on D, and if her real first name would count it is Logonaimanufaalava.

    Would one count the apostrophe in O'Hare? Either way, you got me by 1 on the long.

    IIRC Harvard has had about a dozen hyphenated Tessier-Ashpool upper class twits of the year so they should blow everybody off the board.

    Dub Yon Jost
    Vig Lee
    Dell
    (20)

    Christensen Castellano Charlesworth
    Himmelright Roseborough
    Schweitzer
    (64)

    Re: The Long and The Short of It

    Colorado College does well with long names, not sure if they've had any 3 letter Dmen for the short cause. For Long:

    Berardinelli-Christopherson-Vlassopoulos
    Blumenschein-Christopherson
    McElhinney

    For a total of 74 without resorting to hyphens. There's at least 2 more 12 letter forwards on the bench with Krushelnyski and Kronschnabel.
