OT- Players' nicknames

Hey guys! I was just curious how much players had nicknames in the past, and I wonder if you could help me out(and correct me if I'm wrong). Please post the player's name and his nickname aside.

Here are those that I have:

Maurice Richard- The Rocket
Henri Richard- The Pocket-Rocket
Larry Robinson- Big Bird
Serge Savard- The Senator
Jean Béliveau- Gros Bill
Bernard Geoffrion- Boom Boom
Wayne Gretzky- The Great One
Gordie Howe- Mr. Hockey

Is that really Vézina's nickname? that's strange, but I guess there was a reason for that...Houle's nickname is funny though

He was from Chicoutimi and was "cool as a cucumber" under pressure. That's were the nickname's from if I recall correctly.

Oh, that sounds right...but I don't know, a cucumber; just sounds strange to say in a hockey player's nickname, but hey thanks for telling me, I certainly couldn't have figured it out myself.

Anyone knows if Pavel Bure had a nickname?

Oh sorry sir! I am pretty ignorant in terms of players' nicknames, and that's why I made this thread
