Dicks in the NHL

Funny post by Japers' Rink today on the sudden lack of players named Dick in the league these days:
The NHL now faces a similar Dick shortage.

But that wasn't always the case. In the NHL's early days, there were plenty of Dicks to be found. Dick Irvin and Dick Duff are Hall of Famers. Dick Gamble won a Stanley Cup. Hell, the Chicago Blackhawks had both a Harry Dick and a Dick Butler in the late '40s (I guess they figured that with the former they needed the latter).
We're running out of hockey news, I think.

Hopefully Hat Trick Dick Axelsson will make the Wings in a couple years. That would add another dick to the NHL.

Dick shortage?
Pretty sure Brian Burke's still in the league.
