Bermanisms….NHL Nicknames

OK I have heard enough about McLaren, Kovalev and all the other rumors for now. Let’s have a little fun and see who can come up with the best HOCKEY Berman-inspired nicknames.

I put together a short made up of some of my own and some of Chris Berman’s. I purposely left some easy names off the list because I wanted to see what you guys could come up with.

Nothing too stupid (I know that is asking alot) and nothing too obtuse of a reference.

Here they are:

Adam “Grateful” Deadmarsh

Ed “Saved by the” Belfour

Paul “Made in” Kariya

Adam “Dance on your” Graves

Teppo “Hellooooo” Numminen
