"Super Mario" Mario Lemieux Report Abuse
Bonus points for the cute video game reference. Lemieux was almost like a video game character out there - he's considered the greatest player next to Gretzky and performed some amazing feats on the ice.

"The Golden Jet" Bobby Hull Report Abuse
This is one of the more classy, elegant names out there. Hull is a legend and old time hockey fans always remember him gracefully flying down the ice with his golden blond mane flowing.
