Best nicknames in hockey history

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be as many clever nicknames in the game today as there once was. Can you remember some of the best ones you have heard? Here's a few of my all-time favourites:

Larry "King" Kwong
Tim "Muddy" Watters
Mark "Trees" LaForest
Bernie "Pumper" Nicholls
Merlin "The Magician" Malinowski
Camille "The Eel" Henry
Clarence "Happy" Day
Frank "Ulcers" McCool
Dave "Cementhead" Semenko

"Terrible" Ted Lindsay. One of my all time favorite nicknames. Fits his personality perfectly.

Maurice "Rocket" Richard. That one just sounds so great and also fits him perfectly. Funny how these two players hated each other when they played.

Pat Verbeek "the little ball of hate"

Ken Linseman "the rat"

Jean Beliveau "gros bill"

Dave Schultz "the hammer"

but two of the best come from the WHA's Birmingham Bulls:

Gilles "Bad News" Bilodeau

and

Frank "Seldom" Beaton

who between the two of them had 537 PIMs in 115 games!

Having the nickname ''Red Light'' when you're a goalie must suck. :lol
