Would the REAL Hockey Jesus Please Stand Up

Who is The Hockey Jesus?

Is it Rob Schremp? Scott Niedermayer? Or someone else? This has to be sorted, pronto.

Word up Vic.

I myself was just postulating on this very concept.

The need for the second coming of the NHL messiah, and why it predominantly afflicts the poor pilgrims of Edmonton. Ecspecially for the younger generation, for whom the existence of the saviour has been reduced to myth told by their elder hosers.

There's a burning desire in the hearts of Oiler fans for the resurrection of the next prolific scoring superstar. My best guess is that it's feelings by the feelings of inadequacy created when the Jews stole the original and buried him underneath the Hollywood hills.

I wonder if Mel Gibson knows?

In honour of this thread, Rob Schremp's nickname should be changed to "Sugartits."

Any mention of any god and hockey simply boils down to two letters:

I believe I gave Schremp the title, as well as the graphic, and I'm sticking with it. I don't even know why Nidermayer is a consideration. Beard and long hair do not a sports Jesus make. See Larry Bird for confirmation.

Niedermayer. I better correct that before Rivers Quomo nails me on it.

It's a TERRIBLE nickname. What claim Rob Schremp has to the hockey jesus nick over, Pisani is impossible to fathom.

It's off the minors for Sugartits.

Pisani is St. Fernando, or San Fernado, the Patrom Saint of Lost Hockey Causes. And what do you know about good nicknames, Mudcrutch?

I like Grabia's St. Fernando, but I think Niedermayer gets the Hockey Jesus tag over Schremp. I haven't decided on one for young Robbie... Bon-Schremp-ore just doesn't roll off the tongue.

Oh Grabia, don't be so sensitive. If you had said "I don't even know why RWer Scott Nidermayer (sic) is a consideration." and then pencilled him in just behind Selanne on the Ducks' depth chart then it would have been your modus operandi.

BTW, the last time my place here in Atlanta was broken into I lost two pairs of jeans, a bath towel and a box of pennies. Sharp guys. They obviously needed it more than I did.

Robimus Prime was funny, but Sugartits is gold! :D

I'm voting for Scott Niedermayer, just his demeanour when he talked to the press in his flowing white robe during the playoffs ... gotta be him. I googled "Hockey Jesus" and got tonnes of hits, no clear choices though. Amongst others the nick has been assigned to Brodeur, Thornton, Kessel, even Oiler fandom's own dawgbone by a pissed off guy calling himself Lawn Demon (Oiler fans online are generally nuts, present company included).

slipper: Funny shit. And I'll mark you down as a vote for Gretzky.

I don't even think Scotty Niedermayer is the best "Hockey Jesus" candidate on Anaheim.

Teemu Selanne is the one with the miraculous career resurrection and the countless ketchup parables.

I don't get how Schremp is even in the running for a title like hockey jesus.

Let's all start applying the title to young Ty Gretzky. Then when he inevitably fails to live up to expectations and crumples under the pressure, we can all take the credit for starting it off, all those years ago, or now. Yeah.

What nickname would you prefer?

Oh man, that's just so cruel. Funny though.

Wait, I thought Rob Niedermayer's nick was "sugartits". This is getting confusing.

And while I don't see why there can't be two or more Hockey Jesi, its pretty obvious that the good Niedermayer is presenting himself as a/the true Hockey Jesus, while the Schremp isn't.
