  1. We're aware of an issue with double posting and people are working to fix it. Here's how to avoid it: AFTER YOU HIT THE REPLY/POST BUTTON AND THE TIMER BAND ON THE TOP RIGHT STOPS, ASSUME IT POSTED. DO NOT HIT THE REPLY BUTTON AGAIN. Reload the page and your post will be there. If you are worried about losing the post content, copy it first.

    The media and fans pasted this one on him. Opponents called him "Mr. Elbows" and teammates called him "Blinky" (Howe had a facial tic that caused reflexive blinking after a serious injury in the 1950 playoffs).

    a couple that haven't been mentioned:

    Doug Brown-ov (had amazing chemistry with Fedorov and no one else).
    the Czech Mates.
    And Breezey-by always makes me laugh when I hear people say it.


    Oh, and I thought it would've been funny if Valeri Bure was called the Russian Pocket Rocket, but he wasn't good enough to get a nickname like that.
