Nicknames

So, Alot of players have nicknames some I dont know why (example : Richards = Cannon, instread of giving a 41 page thread to read through can I just get a quick explination)

So lets look at the roster and thier nicknames and maybe get a few for ones w.o

IM REALLY BORED FOR THE RECORD!

Blair Betts - ?
Danny Briere - Cookie Monster
Dan Carcillo - Carbomb
Jeff Carter - Playboy or High and Wide
Claude Giroux - Roo
Scott Hartnell - Caveman
Ian Lapariere - Lappy
Villie Leino - Vike
Andreas Nodl - Noodle
Darrol Powe - POW!
Mike Richards - Cannon
Jody Shelly - Turtle? or Shell?
James van Riemsdyk - JVR or Reamer
Nikolay Zherdev - Zed

Oskars Bartullis - Grouch
Matt Carle - ?
Braydon Coburn - ?
Andrej Meszaros - Fang or Dracula
Sean O'Donnell - Father Time!
Chris Pronger - Elbows or Prongs
Kimmo Timonen - Timmo
Matt Walker - ?

Michael Leighton - Leights
Brian Boucher - Boosh!
Sergei Bobrovsky - Beaver

Wells Fargo Center - The FARG!
Peter Laviolette - Lave the Rage
Paul Holmgren - Homer


so amuse me

the whole reason was I was thinking back at the flyers of the 70's and thier awesome nicknames - the hammer, the rifle, Big Bird, the hound etc. and if we want a cup team we need cup worthy nicknames don't cha think?

The Cannon reference goes back to 2007 when an HF member entitled a thread "Mike Richards is Cannon." The bewilderment subsided when slang attached to the word was complimentary and it took on a life of its own.

Those were mostly user created ones; some of which are used by the players as well.

Timonen's real nickname is Kime but I don't think I've ever actually heard anyone on the team call him that.

It's a good thing I like Briere and think he works hard (scoring a lot helps), because otherwise his defensive play would make me want to Randy Jones him.

Briere can be either of Floyd Mayweather's nicknames: "Money" or "Pretty Boy".

For Nodl someone said "NoGoal."

I like Nodl, but I thought that was pretty funny.

Powe's nickname is "Boom Boom," and I reject anything else.

Carcillo is also nicknamed Chico.
