    Hockey Nicknames

    I used to love hockey nicknames that seemed to be very popular in the 80's and 90's. im not sure nicknames are given to players as much as they used to. List your favorites...


    Lundqvist-The King
    Gretzky--the great one
    Ovi--Great 8

    You boys need more historical perspective.

    Alex "Mine Boy" Levinsky

    Larry "King" Kwong
    Bryan "Super Pest" Watson
    Ching Johnson

    As for Knuckles Nilan, one of my favorite memories came when the Rangers traded Igor Liba to LA after only about 10 games with the Rangers. Liba was in tears in the dressing room. When the reporters pointed out that he would get to play with Gretzky, Liba smiled through his tears and said "Igor no want to play with Gretzky. Igor want to play with Knuckles."

    No. I don't think anyone had the gumption to give him one. His team had enough: Derek "Turk" Sanderson; Johnny "Pie Face" McKenzie; Cheesie Cheevers; Johnny "Chief" Busic (phon.).
