Flyers Nicknames: The First of my "Request" posts

If you follow me on Twitter, you know that I an rather engaging of anyone who wants to talk. Hell, I'm on AIM at the screen name Down Goes Spezza for any one who wants to chat hockey (or criminal psychology) with me.

Anyway since the season is starting soon, I have complied a list of nicknames of the Flyers nicknames in order to help you understand who I'm talking about during the season.

  • Chris Pronger: God

  • Kimmo Timonen: The Timonator


  • Oskars Bartulis: Barty, Lil Latvian, the Ogre

  • Michael Leighton: Leights, GODDAMMIT STOP SUCKING ALREADY!

  • Brian Boucher: Bouch, oh god PLEASE NO ANYTHING BUT HIM AGAIN!

  • Jeff Carter: Carts, Adulterer

  • Scott Hartnell: Caveman, Carrot-top, Harts, 2 minute minor for...

  • Nik Zherdev: whoopps he's gone...just disappeared again

  • Darroll Powe: honestly, with a last name that awesome, he doesn't need a nickname

  • Dan Carcillo: Trade Bait (guaranteed to attract a Sutter or Sather)

  • Blair Betts: LTIR with Right Shoulder Injury, also Rick Tocchet's favorite player (Right DTV?)

  1. for grave's sake, gimme carcillo to the rangers! imagine a line with him and a non-medicated avery, would be awesome. add ruutu to that line and you would have the new york jerks line.

    if sather did that, i would actually like him, no matter how wrong that would feel...
