Don't have time to read them all, but if Little Ball of Hate isn't number one then the article is wrong.

That's a damn shame. One of the best nicknames ever.

How about The Captain? I didn't see that one there either.

Steve Yzerman "Stevie Wonder" "The Captain"
Pat Verbeek "Little Ball of Hate"
Francis Clancy "King"
Jack Stewart "Black Jack"
Alex Delvecchio "Fats"
Bill Hollett "Flash"
Johnny Bower "The China Wall"
Ken Dryden "The Thinker" "Thieving Giraffe" "Octopus"
Andy Bathgate "Handy Andy"
Mario Lemieux "Le Magnifique"
Irvine Bailey "Ace"
Al Iafrate "Wild Thing"

Tell me some or all of those don't belong on that list ahead of a lot of their choices.

I'm not sure it was a top... 41 of alltime. But those names were definitely missed.

No "Cement Head" Semenko? no "Battleship" or "Hound dog" Kellys? Weak.

Love the shot they used of Stu Grimson. Tough way to make a living.


"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

Surprised they missed "the Captain" of all the names listed on here. Other than a couple omissions, though, it was a pretty fun article since they attached pictures to everyone.

Antti "Pillu" Pihlstrom.

It's only funny because of the translation.

Which would be?

It's not loading, but if "The Dominator" and "The Wizard of Oz" aren't there, I call BS.
