Japers' Rink Glossary

In a blatant rip off of The Battle of Alberta, Abel to Yzerman and others, here's the ever-evolving Japers' Rink Glossary, designed to assist you in understanding just what and whom the hell I'm talking about (to be pinned at right). Additions are always welcome, so if I'm missing anything, straighten me out.
