What about fan-given nicknames?

REAL DEAL
GENE
DUPER
COOKIE MONSTER
BROOKSY
TANGER
NISKY
ENGO
JOEY V
P-MART
REVEREND LOVEJOY
KOON
BEAU KNOWS
CFA

Did I miss any?


Of those, I believe only Kunitz' and CFA fan named? I thought Real Deal was the only thing Steigerwald successfully pushed, and the rest are what players have called eachother.

Isn't that more a "failed first overall pick" name drop? I don't think his time as a Penguins has anything to do with it. I feel extremely dirty for having defended this individual.

Daigle didn't fail. He played over 600 NHL games over the course of 10+ years...he didn't live up to hype, sure, but he's probably incorrectly referred to as a "bust" more than any other player in hockey.

Hell, the Wings nearly gave up Steve Yzerman for him...

Though, I don't understand the relevance to the thread in the first place...

I was saying that like Daigle, this thread is not going to live up to the hype :scared:

To me that's like people who say "we" when talking about their favorite team. Like, "Ooh, we just had a 15-game winning streak."

Not really like that at all imo.... Pretty sure Paul Bissonette wants to be called Biznasty and if Players weren't comfortable with nicknames available for fans... they wouldn't use them in interviews or they would ask the media to stop.

I never heard that version of it. I heard Yzerman to Ottawa for Yashin + picks. Apparently the whole trade was Chris Osgood and Steve Yzerman to the Senators in exchange for Alexei Yashin, Damian Rhodes and Ottawa's first round picks in 1996 (1st overall, used on Chris Phillips) and 1997 (12th overall, used on Marian Hossa)

I've seen this before too...but Daigle was rumored in a lot of deals early on and Yzerman was heavily talked about in trade rumours throughout the 90's because it was thought he couldn't lead a team to the Stanley Cup...

Going into the 1996 Draft, the Senators were pretty much done with Daigle and wanted to start getting some winning going...the Wings were just dominated in the 1995 Finals before that and Yzerman was thought to be wearing down a tiny bit by then and it wasn't sure if Scotty Bowman was going to be a good match for him...the idea of Daigle and the first overall pick (the Sens were also shopping that...it would become Chris Phillips) for a 31 year old Steve Yzerman didn't seem so far-fetched...but, obviously, ultimately didn't happen...
