** Why didnt this Nickname for Pavel stick ?**

Nicknames in hockey are generally limited to adding a suffix of -s, -y, -sy, or -er of a shortened part of their name, or just their name shortened:

Pavs

Vrby

Millsy

Kaner

Bieks

as examples.

We should just leave it at that and occasional when someone is way ahead of the curve in terms of talent they deserve a special nickname:

Russian Rocket - Nothing wrong with that

Super Mario

The Great One

Mr. Hockey

It's pretty lame forcing a nickname for players IMO, the best ones just flow and catch on.

agreed with Aladeen,

Russian Rocket

Super Mario

The Great One

Mr. Hockey

Those are fantastic nicknames spawned by how fantastic they became.

Ovechkin: The Great 8

Crosby: The Kid

Actually found this via googling randomly a few days back was kinda entertaining:

Think Datsyuk is my favourite (The Magic Man, Pasha, Houdini)
