Player's Nicknames

So I'm going to be honest, I really didn't know this. I feel like I have a pretty good amount of knowledge about all the players on the Flyers. This morning I was eating Captain Crunch, and like every other time, it started to cut the roof of my mouth. I go online to screw around and wind up searching for it on Wikipedia, lo and behold I find this:



I'm surprised I didn't know this, especially if it was that common to have a direct link to Chris Pronger when searching. Do any other players or past players in the Flyer's organization have great names like this?

Ugh I love Cap'n Crunch but I hate the cutting...

Carbomb is my favorite nickname, no question.

The guys on the Devils board just call him 'Elbow.' I like that one.
