How do you pronounce "Byfuglien"?

I've become a fan of Dustin Byfuglien. Nice kid, power forward, and has had plenty of success this post-season.

The only issue I have is the name. It's pronounced "Bufflin", which I never understood. I mean, um, those sounds don't seem to match the letters.

Well, thanks to Bloge Salming, a hidden camera, and a time machine... now it all makes sense.

  5. I can't help but laugh when I see him, as he looks just like Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder. Also, I've been asking about that name for a long time, too.

  13. The fact that he has "fugli" in the middle of his name, and it applies, doesn't help matters any.

  14. I always call him butt-fuggin-uglian and wish he was a Red Wing where he'd be called bufflin.
