It's not on there.

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

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

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

No Crosby's up there. I think you missed it. (sarcasm)

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.

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.

Boy Do they Like The Nick Name "Rocket"

More of a List of Top Players With Nicknames....

They Really do seem to like Anything that's a play off of someone else's Nickname

Clearly wasn't hockey people that made this list.,
