My big claim to fame!

I always liked Antii Laaksonen personally.

I like old names/nicknames.

Bobby Baun
etc.

Jeff Beukeboom gets my vote! I always liked Brad Isbister, too.

HM for Carlo Colaiacovo, Jordin Tootoo, and Scottie Upshall.

Maybe you're thinking of Wobbufet
Or Bugs Bunny saying "Wabbit"

I agree. Saku Koivu on the other sounds pretty normal, at least for us Finns

If Canucks prospect Ludwig Blomstrand ever made the league he'd win this hands down.

It's actually Wacey Rabbit, which makes it even funnier.

And no mention of Semin yet in this thread?

I like the old school names too, like Caesar Maniago, Chico Resch, Eddie Shack, Harold Snepsts, Tony Tanti, Illka Sinisalo, Mike Palmateer, Orest Kindrachuk, Petri Skriko, Hakan Loob, Butch Goring...there's been a million of them over the years. Too many to remember them all.
