    :flyers

    Context included when needed

    Gostisbehere - Ghost

    Simmonds - Wayne Train

    Voracek - Jake the Snake (slithers his way through defenders)

    Giroux - G-sus (our savior, started in 2012)

    Provorov - Provocop (because of his robotic precision)

    MacDonald - Farmer (play on Old MacDonald because he farms goals for the opposition :laugh:)

    Rick Nash is The Slim Reaper

    Though I think Dom "The Professor" Moore is pretty good too.

    Since when ..?

    Don't think I've ever heard him called that on the Jackets and he's not really slim or at all very deadly recently.

    There's a reason people call Kevin Durant the slim reaper.

    Can't find the video anywhere, but I do 100% remember hearing Bradley using Semin's nickname in a postgame interview with CSN. Hilarious stuff.
