Scrambling the Nashville Predators - better nicknames through anagrams

Every hockey team features a variety of nicknames assigned to various players. Most are simply created by attaching a "-y" to a portion of a player's name, hence Sully, Smitty, Leggy, etc. But we can do better, can't we?

With a nod to Dark Blue Jacket, let's take a look at some anagrams that can be formed from the names of the Nashville Predators. Follow after the jump for the list, where I have my favorites in bold. I really think we've got some budding nicknames here...
