In Topic: What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

04 March 2015 - 04:06 AM

Allot of these nicknames come straight from the wings dressing room. I have a theory on these nicknames when Babcock (Babs) is doing his interviews. If he uses a nickname he likes the player and how they are playing, if he doesn't they are in the doghouse. The most common one is the alternate Weiss and 'Weisser'. I remember it took a long time before Smith became 'Smitty', it's true of most hockey coaches regardless of any league. It's a daft game I play when watching coaches being interviewed.
Edit: grammar

Mrazek's already won a Calder Cup with this team :).

He does, so does Pulk I think. Hope they get another!

I'm happy for him to go down to GR, I think the guys have a good chance at the Calder Cup (in fact a better chance than when they won it) so let him, Mrazek, XO, Sproul etc get some real playoff experience it's only going to help the big club.

Kenny's done a good job here. All in we've not given any real assets today and brought in some solid pieces to strengthen our team.

Umm which defender other than Petry is still available? This is not an all in year for the Wings

You're probably right, not keen on Petry so we maybe don't make any other moves.
