What's your favourite nickname?
Mon, September 17, 2007

In this day and age, the great hockey nickname is a thing of the past.

Take a player's last name, toss a "y" or an "er" on the end of it and voila, you have a nickname.

Not so in the days gone by when almost every hockey player had a clever moniker that was every bit as recognizable to fans as the athlete's real first name.

Looking back, what is your favourite hockey nickname, obscure or otherwise?
