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.
