    So we've got however many days until the start of the season, a bunch of new guys and fringe guys. I'll put a list together below and put current nicknames I know.

    What's the goal? Propose a new nickname or fill in any missing ones since players have multiple. I'll edit the list with the consensus and then it'll be easy to figure out whose who during the season.

    Bonus points if we can come up with emoji nicknames, I saw the Golden Knights twitter doing that and it was pretty cool.

    Too bad we don't have an emoticon of a tombstone...would be perfect for Graves.

    Think you forgot:
    "Big Z" for Zadorov.
    "Hobbit" or "Samwise the Brave" for Girard.
    "Terry" for Yakupov was my favorite last year. Barrie is a pretty funny dude.

    I hate Moser but Jimothy Timothy is one of my favourites for JT Compher. Gabriel Bourque is also Gourque. Not really anybody calls him this on the Aves but I loved the Yeti for Soderberg.

    All the blind rainman jokes and puns imaginable are Söderberg's nickname.

    Also, all the rest of the players with no nickname should have the same nickname.
