I've never heard anyone actually say it before. It's just easier to type I think.

It's not as bas as what teenagers were calling Vancouver back in '02 - '06. The 'Couve.

God I hated that.

Not sure about any of the rest of you... but I've never been referred to as Minny.

why not just use the three letter abbreviation if you're going to abbreviate? MIN, CHI, VAN, OTT, WAS, etc.

Western Conference:

Dallas = Dally
LA = Angie
Anaheim = Heimy
San Jose = Sanny
Phoenix = Pheeny

Chicago = Chiccy
Detroit = Deety
St. Louis = Sainty
Columbus = Columby -- this would really make them mad. lol
Nashville = Nashy
The bold is the only ones I personally would change.

I've heard Pierre McGuire use the term Minny. I about screamed when he did. To me, it's just belittling.

I think most everyone here was there for a while in some shape or form at some point. (Some/most still browse around there) Just got sick of the same old same old from a few and all of the changes didn't exactly help in my opinion either.

I think Nixy works better for Phoenix than Pheeny...

By the way, all this just reminds me of Gardenhire's nicknames for all his players.

Same one as here. I don't think I've posted there in something like 2 years, though.

We just think it is boring to play against Minny because we lose every damn game...

Anaheim = Los Angeles Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in California Ducks
San Jose = Saint Joe
Phoenix = Winnipeg
Detroit = Detroilet
St. Louis = San Looey
Columbus = Cleveland
Buffalo = Buffaffalo
Montreal = MON (shouted in a Quebec accent)

I always called Minnesota Minny since your players play like Minnie Mouse.
