Shark?  E-Money?  Ginger Jesus?  Some visitors and lurkers won't have any idea what we're talking about when we're shouting these names in our gamethreads here at Nucks Misconduct.  We have been talking lately (okay, maybe it's mostly just me and kesrows) about how we need a list of all the nicknames we have for the players on this precious team.  I did one last February, but it's a year old and needs some serious updating.  So, without furthur ado, join me after the jump as we look at all the nicknames we've given the guys.

Let's start with the most important players: our current roster!!

Sergei Shirokov : Shark

Mario Bliznak : Mario

Aaron Volpatti : Peppermint Patty, Voltron, Voltage
