Ranking the Best Nicknames in Philadelphia Flyers History

Reggie Leach is one of many Flyers with a colorful nickname.

There have been great nicknames throughout the history of the NHL, but the Philadelphia Flyers have had some of the best.

Here is a look at the greatest nicknames in the history of the Philadelphia Flyers. You will notice that many of these nicknames are from Flyers of the past. Part of the reason is that nicknames were more prominent back then as sportswriters tried to create interest in a team and a player and help fans relate more to them.

Nicknames are ranked on their originality more than anything else.

Feel free to mention any great nicknames you feel I may have missed. Just make sure the player appeared in more than a handful of games for the Flyers. Players like "Chico" Resch, who made only a brief appearance in Philadelphia but is by far best remembered for playing for other teams, will not make this top-20 list.
