MM: Can we please come to an agreement?

Ok, I am so tired of MM being used on this boards. Some people, without context, use it and you have no idea who they are talking about. Can we come to an agreement from this point forward on using MM for one person.

Mike Milbury
Matt Moulson
Matt Martin

Please vote and follow it from this point forward so people no longer need to be confused!!!

How about using Moulson for Matt Moulson, Martin for Matt Martin and don't even mention Milbury anymore, because he isn't part of the organization anymore and he is not worth our time anymore either haha!

P.S. Another nickname for matt martin could be matty marts, marts OR Marty.

My point is you don't normally have a cheezy initial for your tough guy. You call him Matty (even though it doesn't sound tough), or something else...MM is a horrible nickname for him. I think we'd be doing disservice by relegating Matt Martin to just MM considering he does so much for us out on the ice. Eh, looks like the fans want it that way so far....

Yeah, i don't hear those other nicknames very often....but MM pops up constantly and it's the only one that is common and causes confusion when not used in context. These other nicknames you are bringing up are few and far between.

I don't like using Marty for Martin because everyone here and I'm pretty sure on the Islanders has called Martinek "Marty." And he's still on the team. So until Marty retires, Martin will be Martin to me.

matty marts is a very lame nickname
I'm guessing zeeker is Cizikas.

I've heard players in interviews refer to Bailey as Bails. That make some sense.

I vote Marty McInnis or.... Rod Langway. Choose. Either is fine.
...or just use Context and Deduction.
...or choose your own adventure.
though I'm fine never mentioning Mike Milbury ever again.
Matt Martin = MaMa
Matt Moulson = MaMo

we, as fans of the team and players, do not have the right to give a player a nick name. nick names are given by family members and personal friends.

i will agree that the initials do get confusing ( and annoying ). especialy when you read a trade thread and they start saying GMGM wouldnt do this trade. or GMGS might do this trade. or GMMN might do this trade. now ive got to try to remember who is the general manager for each and every team?
HFBOARDS does not charge by the letter, so you can type the general managers name free of charge!!!

I'm afraid to ask what the other 2 were. (Could i have been 1?)

Milbury i always use MMM.

MM was originally for Moulson but seeing how Martin has stole some of his thunder (or lack of) we should try to find out Matt Martin's middle name. Sure are plenty of M's in that statement.

Edit: Found nothing for his middle name. The best answer I was able to find was this

http://www.chacha.com/question/what-...;s-middle-name

"Mathew Martin's middle name is not listed on any of his bios."

Even more Edit: Moulson's middle name is Keith. So to rehash this ridiculous thread..

MMM =Milbury
MM = Martin
MKM = Moulson..

that work for everyone? = )

First of all, stop with Mikko Makela. He doesn't exist. He's a figment of your imagination. Stop being "old" about things. :-P

Secondly, I don't think it's a stupid thread when I was just reading through another thread where they were talking about Matt Moulson and some guy said MM is there to use the body and excellent boardwork. There is no way he could have been talking about Moulson, even though context would think it was the case because the prior comments had been about Moulson. So I think it needs to be clarified. I don't think this is a stupid thread at all.

The nicknames make me thing of this:

El Nino.....Zeeker.....johnnyteeveeepeevee.....Okpooc hikins. whatever.

I like Martin. Sounds tough. And something you'd find in a phone book. I don't imagine anyone saying that name with boxers around ankles at mom's house. A grand name I say.

How about MM is Martin, Mrs. MM is Moulson. MM is Milbury. Cerebral impulses help those fortunate to know the difference. And there we have evolution, survival of the fittest.

I thought MM was Moulson, and I agree with other posters; Martin is too tough a player for that nickname

I also got confused with the MM abbreviations. Esp. since some talk about moving Martin to the first line you can't always get it from the context lol. Same with Matty, or Marty (Martinek). Postfixing with the jersey number would help as I've seen someone else use in another thread (MM26).
In general I like most of the nick names, some players also go by those names on twitter (grabs, zeeker, mattymarts)

I distinguish between Matt Moulson and Matt Martin by calling them MM26 and MM17.

It depends on the post. if you mention moulson and then go use MM in the sentence after, its matt moulson. Same goes for martin. If youre talking about both, then use their name.

Also, dont see the issue with using intials. It just makes it easier to post, especially from an iphone which autocorrects just about every friggin name in the NHL not smith, jones or ryan.
