Having his name on the Cup probably makes it worth it.

Let's not forget the other two nicknames associated with him "The Big Tomahawk" and "The Little Scalps"

Is Joe Nolan Ted Nolan's father? I can't imagine there are too many native hockey players from SS Marie with that surname.

Here are some I like

Claude "Turtle" Lemieux

Personally, I've always referred to Brett Hull as "The Chubby One" (Hmmm, "Slug Man" might be more appropriate)

Being kind of a geek, I always thought it was cool Igor Larionov was
"The Professor" (Dude, Isn't that the boss guy of the X-men?)
Of course, "Yoda" would've been cool as well

I like the Bullin Wall. It sounds pretty cool. Also the Dominator is pretty cool.

Olie the Goalie has always been one of my favorites (Olie Kolzig, of course). Also the 'Russian rocket' is always a favorite too.
