Think there might be a spelling mistake there to look out for, but otherwise a fun puzzle.

Yup, a spelling mistake and one fairly garbled piece of English, which spoiled a really good WP, pity.

Yes, there was one spelling error and the one clue should have contained an alternate spellilng alert. But be honest, how often do errors get through on the Word Puzzles?

The editors will get it fixed quickly I am sure. Just goes to show the author and editors are human.

I thought it was a good puzzle and I think there were only two names I was familiar with, so I learned something too. I know there are more famous Canadians so I hope there will be more puzzles featuring them.

We apologize for the spelling error. It was corrected several hours ago. We do make every effort to carefully proofread all of the word puzzles before they go live, but sometimes we miss something. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

I think there has been a HUGE improvement with the WP's errors. I don't know what you guys did to fix that, but its very rare a mistake makes it through. Nicely done.

Hi there, thanks for taking my word puzzle and your kind comments. Sorry for the spelling mistake but I guess it easy to do.

The "newpaper" error was easy to make, and easy to edit out i'd have thought. The "his films include such movies as" line was just plain poor in my opinion.

If, by the spelling error, you were referring to the word "defenceman", this is how it is spelled in Bobby Orr's profile in Wikipedia. I think that Wiki has become the default standard on Sploofus, and have no problem adopting their spellings.

The spelling error i reffered to was "newpaper" instead of "newspaper". Who's ever heard of a newpaper magnate ?
