Cutting Edge Nicknames


cabinessence

Recommended Posts

I'd first like to make a public apology for not posting more this summer. I realize many need their daily Cabinessence fix, and dig my insight along with award winning threads and catch phrases (you can now find other posters using them in tribute!).

 

Anywho, on to the task at hand....nicknames for the players on the roster! In today's day and age there are to many unimaginative, bland nicknames. Let's have some creativity, think out of the box,a and have the players referred to in a way that would make one think, "I wonder what that's all about, he must sure be a character!....."

 

Check the roster and dig it!

 

 

Daniel Sedin (Dank) Henrik Sedin (Hank) Loui Eriksson (Lou)
Sven Baertschi (Bear) Brandon Sutter (Sutts) Jake Virtanen (Virts)
Emerson Etem (Em) Bo Horvat (BoHo) Jannik Hansen (Hans)
Derek Dorsett (Dors) Markus Granlund (Granner) Alexandre Burrows (Burr)

 

Alexander Edler (Eds) Chris Tanev (Tans)
Ben Hutton (Hutts) Erik Gutbranson (Guts)  
Nikita Tryamkin (Try) Philip Larsen (Lars)  

 

Ryan Miller (Millsy)                Jacob Markstrom (Marky)

 

With a cast of zany names like this, opponents might be a big baffled of what kind of crew this team is!

 

Can you dig it?????

The NHL nickname method is as lame as it gets. Just shorten the players first or last name and add a "y" or an "sy". Wow!

 

Tre Mac is onto something.

Remember that Canucks promition in the early 200s where the players were plastered onto buses and billboards with captions like "Trev","Bert" 
Nazzy", and "Jovo"? Much more creative than lame, lazy nicknames like The house, Tiger,Steamer, The Hammer,Fruit Boots,Hank (Murzyn),Mad Dog,and Jack Van Impe.
