That's not something you become, he was born a King.





The King.

He's the King. That's it.

Rorschach 05-20-2012 01:09 AM

It's a play on King Henry.

mikitas donut 05-20-2012 01:10 AM

I thought that was his accepted nickname?

Kesler2Kesler 05-20-2012 01:11 AM

It's been his nickname for a long time, what's the point of this thread?

Tavares is a Portuguese Prince.

Have you really not heard that nickname before? Your team plays in the same division as him.

Roomtemperature 05-20-2012 01:39 AM

King Henrik, King Felix, and King James. It all bothers me since they haven't won the big one yet.

TriFF51 05-20-2012 01:44 AM

Like others said, its been his nickname for a long time now...and he has a crown on his mask, and even has his own crown collection clothes sold at MSG.

Rumcajs 05-20-2012 01:47 AM

He is Swedish. They have a symbolic monarchy.Tre Kronor. Three crowns. You get the picture.

butteryslugz 05-20-2012 01:48 AM

Timomies 05-20-2012 02:06 AM

because he dated Swedish princess :nod:

Big McLargehuge 05-20-2012 02:07 AM

You're a fan of a team in his division and you haven't heard him called that ad nauseam before?

It's a play on King Henry, and he's had that nickname forever.

No, I've never heard anyone from Philly call him a King. Makes him sound a little egocentric.

Ozz 05-20-2012 09:23 AM

Too bad his last name wasn't Smith...

Yes, because people usually give themselves nicknames.

Jim Jackson has referred to him as King Henrik on CSN Philly's broadcast quite a few times.

Yeah because everyone who has won the big one is a great player:shakehead

Jay Wells and Ray Bourque have each won a cup as dmen, per the above logic we should call them both Kings
