The Kraut Line During the 1930s and 1940s, the Boston Bruins' offense was geared around its famous 'Kraut Line' of Bobby Bauer, Milt Schmidt and Woody Dumart. All three hailed from Kitchener, Ontario which had (and still has) a large German population. The line helped Boston win Stanley Cups in both 1939 and 1941. During the Second World War, the threesome's moniker was changed to 'the Kitchener Kids' because, as hockey historian Brian McFarlane noted with understatement, 'Things German weren't too popular.'

With political correctness running amok, there's no way a pro sports team today would openly use the word 'Kraut' anymore. Nobody took offense at it in the 1930s, though.
