Nicknames I came up with and like, Abdelkader - AppleFritters, iFlip/vFlip for when Ilari and Valtteri Filppula play on the Wings next year.

Rafalski - RafLOLski
Lidstrom - Mr. Perfect
Nikolai Khabibulin - The Bulin Wall
Jonathan "Bates" Battaglia
Ed Jovanovski - Jovocop
The Eagle, Eddie the Eagle, Crazy Eddie
Big Bert, The Todd
Derek Boogaard - The Boogie Man
Crosby - The Wizard of Croz

Probably a lot more I forgot.

Crap, how'd I forget: Igor Larionov - The Professor
The Best Of BC

- Squirrels, they hate to be thrown. / Why is the magical unicorn named Brian... Jedi - I just downloaded the "kids" book, "Go the F--k to Sleep" as narrated by Samuel L. Jackson on my kindle. I am now ready to be a daddy. / *Checks Router* No, I'm positive I didn't hit the "Wings Defense Sucks" button. Electrophile - I'm just glad the Wings were able to win despite the Curse of Brian. ACallToArms - I think Trey needs to put something about payroll tax and deferred income in his sig... Edicius - I'd rather [have] a soundbite of me saying "I like (man sausage)" rather than "I like Crosby".

Not sure... Here's the quote though:

"Kuba (Kindl) has got to decide he wants to shoot the puck, or he won't be on the power play,'' Babcock said. "Kuba, did you hear what I said there?''

Tim Cheveldae - Chevy

If you think goaltenders today have it hard, look up that dudes career :)

One of the Wings most famous goalies. Not....because they did good those years...either.

Was Cheveldae the guy Demers couldn't start for home games anymore because the booing was too bad? Or was he the guy who did get the home starts because they were booing the other guy?

Speaking of doghouses of yore, there's also Big Keith Primeau, always said with irony because he played like someone who was 5'6".

You should know, Cheveldae, started more games in a season, than any other wings Goaltender has ever started. He was, effectively, despite a horribly losing season, Detroits most iron goalie, in history. He sucked, sure. But he backstopped the worst team in Wings history, day in, day out.

But I notice, you don't know what you're talking about, so perhaps you should look it up?
