Hello Wingnuts! As you may recall, I promised a FanPost over the weekend. Well, here's my introduction. I haven't been a Wings fan for too long, but I'm getting more familiar with the team as the season goes on. I'm still having some issues figuring out who plays with who and on which line, but I'm working on it.
I participated in my first Game Thread last night in the Wings OT victory over the Blue Jackets, and although I was more of a Drive-By commenter, I was noticing the various nicknames people have for the players. This got me thinking: are there any nicknames that we can all agree on? For example, what should Joey MacDonald's official Winging It In Motown nickname be? How about Justin Abdelkader, or Jan Mursak? I know there are the official nicknames, like the Eurotwins or the Mule or Filp, but besides that I have no clue. The only one I have made up is Blackjack for Tomas Tatar because he's #21.
Post your ideas in the comments section below, and hopefully one of our talented editors could make these Official WIM nicknames. Oh and thanks for taking the time to read this.
