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

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

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

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

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.

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

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