Trevor Letowsky --TLet--and he likes it too, a friend of mine called him that and he smiled and said I like that.

John Grahame ---Crackers

I like Tlet too...but no one knows who I am talking about when I call him that.

I call John "Crackers" unless he has let in 4+ goals, then he is Crumbs :lol:

Most of those nicknames basically are short forms for their firs tor last name. That's why my favourite is the the Wizard Ray Whitney, especially when Forslund says it.

I've been Cullen the roadrunner for years, but i don't know if Hab fans would be too fond of that cause they called Hall of famer, Yvan Cournoyer, the roadrunnerback in the 70's.

we called him ruuts or ruuty mostly (or ruuty booty, if you're me). ruuty was the one that stuck the most though.

some of the players here have specific songs played if they score a goal. his was 'rudy can't fail' by the clash.

Ruutu is Finnish for "a square". You get a "checked" pattern when you put squares next to each other.

And "Ruuty" sounds to us Finns like "ruuti", which in turn is Finnish for "gun powder".

Checks and gun powder... "Ruuty" ;)
