    Posting to all boards for max input.

    Ever since hearing Douglas Murray referred to as Cranky by his coach and team mates (cracked up when I hear that - evidently short for "crankshaft"?), I've been curious about the nicknames of the other players. Do you know them? Please add, and I'll update this list accordingly. I left a lot of them that I think I know intentionally blank, just in case it's wrong.

    NOTE: Nicknames are often very screwy, so if you're joking, it may not be obvious. Please put a "!" or "(suggested)" or something next to a name if you're just joking about it (e.g., "Benchy" for Nitty). Also, if you see a nick below that you know is wrong, or are absolutely sure that it's one and not the others, please let me know so I can bold the one most used.

    Forwards

    Scratch "Juicy" for Couture - he hates it.

    IIRC "Desy" (Dehzzie) is the nickname for Desjardin.

    John McCarthy's nickname is John McCarthy.

    Pavelski - The BIG Pavelski, Little Joe

    Nichol - Peanut

    According to an interview with Huskins on 98.5, Thornton's been calling him "Vern", which got shortened from Husqvarna.

    Do you want our nicknames and the team nicknames or just the team nicknames?

    Team, players, media mainly (like what McLellan and other players use in press conferences). But I'll add other nicks as well, just specify that it's a suggestion, or one that is used by people outside the team, so that can be clarified in the list.

    Couture's nickname for McGinn is Sauce.

    Jumbo's nickname for Niemi is Rico.

    Couture said "Ginner" in his 20 questions with Drew.

    I posted this in an old nickname thread from a couple months ago...

    Marleau's nickname whenever he scores is Ice Dragon. It's a popular nickname for him in certain parts of the internet.

    Bah, who cares if Juicy hates that nickname, nicknames don't get picked by the person who gets it. Also, why would you prefer Cooch over Juicy...must mean something different in Canada...

    Nichol was referred to as Pigeon and Pit Bull (one of those might be self-given) in a Shark Byte, Quick Quiz segment, from some time this season.

    Where'd Peanut come from? I can't recall that one...

  22. The Sharks only have 3 guys with actual nicknames. Jumbo, Crankshaft and Pickles. All the others are just lame bastardizations of their names.
