Nicknames: Players real nicknames & fun suggestions

Anybody know the real nicknames the players use with each other?


I was at the game last night, and I came up with a nickname for D'Agostini. How does the Dagger sound?

What a goal, reminded me of a couple Mario Lemieux goals I have witnessed. What speed & hands!

My friend also suggested we change his jersey number to 77 to simulate daggers in the XBOX NHL 09 game. That's cool!

Here's my nickname suggestions:
  • Hamrlik: Hammer
  • Brisebois: Woodpecker? haha
  • Bouillon: Soup
  • OByrne: Thief (I know that's in bad taste, but...it makes me laugh) I hope he plays a good game tomorrow night vs. Lightning


p.s. Habsinsideout.com is an amazing site to get your HABS FIX daily. Lots of audio bytes which i love

Melnik was just grilling Eliotte Friedman of CBC about player's real nicknames that are in the least creative, instead of just "Pricer" and "Hammer" and "Kovy". Clearly Friedman knew a couple but he wouldn't tell.

Anyone know? Not just Habs.

if we ever meet, there's a story to this that has to be told.

My Dad often calls tall people, String of Misery.

Halak - Jaro
Markov - Marky
Komisarek - Komo
Bouillon - Cube
Brisebois - Breezer/Breeze-by
O'Byrne - OB
Dandenault - Dandy
Hamrlik - Hammer
Gorges - "Did you know he was the captain of the Kelowna Rockets?"
Koivu - Saks
Kovalev - Kovy
Higgins - Higgy
Lang - Langer
Tanguay - Tangs
Latendresse - Lats
Plekanec - Plex/Plecky
Kostopoulos - TKO
Laraque - BGL
D'Agostini - Dagger
Lapierre - Lappy/Laps

I dunno...this is what I've heard these guys be called here on these boards as well in interviews

Two that I'd like to see stick around here:

Lapierre = The Rock (that's his name translated to englisg... la pierre, the rock)
Ryan O'Byrne = ROB (fits way too well with the purse stealing, and its his initials RyanOByrne... even better than SOB [Shane O'Brien])

Also like the THE BELARUSSIAN ROCKET for Andrei Kostitsyn.

...is it sad that after years of hearing him called "cube," I just now realized that it is not only his stature/build, but also the fact that his last name's kitchen variety alter ego also comes in cubes?
