Discussing the Most Appropriate Nicknames in NHL History

Ryan O'LearyFeatured Columnist IJanuary 17, 2013

Martin Brodeur may just have one of the best NHL nicknames of all time: "Satan's Wallpaper."

Not only is it extremely appropriate—Brodeur has seemingly pasted a hermetic seal on every net league-wide for years—but it's also hilarious.

Brodeur's is just one example of thousands of player nicknames, as handing out monikers seems to be a favorite hobby reserved just for this sport.

Some guys are simply given an extra letter at the end of their name, like Taylor Hall, who they call "Halls-y." Others have nicknames that make no sense at all like Jordan Staal, who is affectionately known as "Gronk," long before Rob Gronkowski came on the scene.

Then you have the iconic names that last a lifetime and in many cases become synonymous with the player himself. So, which all-time nicknames are the most appropriate? Watch this clip to find out.
