This list is one big joke if example Tomas Sandström is counted as Finnish player. Its really irritating that in NHL they have these false nationalities in some stats just because somebody has born in foreign land. This would be nice quiz if you just make the lists as they should be.

Well, it does say in the caveats that it uses the player's birth country. And I while I agree that it's weird how the NHL and media over state the birth country of some players (e.g., Olaf Kolzig being born in South Africa), I thought it would be fun to include players who didn't represent their birth country. If someone knows that Heatley was born in Germany, Nolan in Northern Ireland, or Sandstrom in Finland, they should be rewarded with a higher score than those who don't. The point of a quiz is to be challenged, after all :-)

Great quiz! It could use an update, though. Alex Ovechkin would now make the list, and be the top-scoring Russian.
