Steve Mason: "Sanest Move" and other anagrams

A blog I occasionally read is Wrap Around Curl, written by a fan of the WHL's Spokane Cheifs. One of her recent posts titled "Fun in English Class" is about hockey player name anagrams... which are hilarious. For fun I decided to try out the Blue Jackets' names. Try yourself here. I bolded some of my favorites... and some were just funnier in all caps.

Mathieu Garon: toughest mania
Steve Mason: sanest move

Mike Blunden: nimble, nuked
Jared Boll: do bell jar
Derick Brassard: sacred drab irks
Chris Clark: slick charr
Derek Dorsett: retorted desk
Kristian "juice" Huselius: juciest shriek in usual
Derek Mackenzie: zanier, meek deck
Maksim Mayorov: I'm my savor amok
Andrew Murray: unmerry award
Rick Nash: arch sink
Samuel Pahlsson: phalluses man so
RJ Umberger: GRR! BUM JEER!
Antoine Vermette: to retentive amen
Jake Voracek: cave! ok! a jerk

Mike Commodore: I'm crooked memo
Jan Hejda: hajj dean
Rostislav Klesla: overkill lasts as
Marc Methot: met to charm (too true!)
Nathan Paetsch: a path enchants
Kris Russell: SKULL RISERS
Anton Stralman: not smart annal
Fedor Tyutin: tidy fortune

I think my favorite non-Blue Jackets anagrams are Luongo's (goon or trouble?) and Heatley's (hey neat lady!). Post any other fun ones you find/think up/discover!

Update: More!

Columbus Blue Jackets: JUMBLE SUCKABLE SCOUT (from Q); ABLE TO SUCK MUSCLE JUB (from Jim)
Stinger: Resting (from Q)
Rick Nash: Cash Rink (from wrap around curl herself)
Ken Hitchcock: check on thick (ahahhahaha)
Scott Howson: NOW COSTS HOT!
Claude Noel: Ace, dull one!


  1. Nice post, Kirsi. The anagram for CBJ? JUMBLE SUCKABLE SCOUT, which could be a metaphor for the first decade of the franchise.

    And the anagram for Stinger? Resting.

  2. CBJ could also be ABLE TO SUCK MUSCLE JUB.

  3. Jumble Suckable Scout. Now that's rich.

    -- Dark Blue Jacket, aka JERK ABDUCT LAKE

  4. Those are some rad anagrams! Also, Rick Nash can be rearranged to Cash Rink.

  5. cash rink is so much better than arch sink... and more fitting to his other nickname of rich nash i guess, haha.

    the ken hitchcock one is hilarious... "check on thick". it's almost too perfect.
