It turns out that you can rhyme "Nash" with many words, and it makes the name of the city of "Nashville" sound like a funny place.

If you live in a city with the suffix "ville" (meaning "city") you're ripe for a very funny, very original thing where you replace the prefix with a rhyming word that evokes something else. For example, the Sharks opponent in the second round is the Nashville Predators, and some people call them "Smashville" due to their tough, big-boy defense or something. Even the national broadcasters use this term! "Smashville". I used an online rhyming dictionary, and it turns out that you can make a lot of other somethingville names that sound a little like "Nashville."

Ashville

Bashville

Brashville

Cacheville

Cashville

Clashville

Crashville

Dashville

Flashville

Gashville

Gnashville

Hashville

Lashville

Mashville

Rashville

Sashville

Slashville

Splashville

Stashville

Thrashville

Trashville

But then it occurred to me that nobody does the same thing for "San Jose". So here's some suggestions for fans and broadcasters to use about the Sharks:

Ban Jose

Can Jose

Cannes Jose

Clan Jose

Dan Jose

Fan Jose

Flan Jose

Jan Jose

Klan Jose

Man Jose

Pan Jose

Plan Jose

Quran Jose

Ran Jose

Scan Jose

Span Jose

Stan Jose

Tan Jose

Van Jose

You're welcome, NBCSN.

Sharks @ Predators

6:00 PM Pacific

Prediction: Gnashville tries to take a bite out of the Sharks, while the Sharks stick to the Plan Jose.
