I think the name "Mr. Hockey" is a good name for Gordie Howe. One reason, is he has been playing hockey for a long time. For example, he first played when he was 18 years old and stopped playing when he was 69 years old. Another nickname that I think would be good for him is "a Great One." First off, he became an idol for many - including Wayne Gretzky For example, Wayne Gretzky got the name "The Great One."
