Teacher Spelling isn't that grate in hoky

The Anaheim Ducks' names will be inscribed on the Stanley Cup later this year, but the execution isn't always perfect.

From that Wall Street Journal link:
Quote:
Frank Selke was an assistant manager for the Maple Leafs when they won the cup in 1945. His title is abbreviated as "ass man."

I imagine he'd be even happier since he wasn't on the Ducks when they won.
