Default Best-ever Goalie Nicknames

I laughed out loud when someone made a reference a couple of weeks ago to Jose "Three-or-More" Theodore; it moved up to #2 on my all-time list behind Warren "Score-Against-Me" Skorodenski of the Chicago Blackhawks!
Chicago Blackhawks goaltending history : Warren Skorodenski

Anyone got any others?

I've always liked "Ollie the Goalie", Olaf Kolzig. Plus, I named my new baby daughter Olivia, so naturally one of her nicknames is now "Ollie the Goalie." haha

Arturs "I am wall" Irbe. Am I the only person here who remembers how that one came about?
I also love Gary "Suitcase" Smith's nickname.
A list of goalie nicknames can be found here:

Awesome! Forgot about Suitcase Smith! There is a hysterical OPC card of him from the '70s with a greasy/hippie hairdo...

Loved the Moose! He had one of the greatest masks ever with Manitoba.

Having grown up a Blackhawks fan, I was a huge Tony Esposito fan.

An old sports illustrated cover featured Phil and Tony Esposito and the title was "Mr. Go. and Mr. No." I always liked those.

Carey retired and went into business at 26 years old, Lacher was pretty old (in hockey years) when he broke out so he quickly faded.

If you are the real Brian Price, welcome.

We used to ask Todd Bertuzzi "Why the long face Todd?" at the coliseum. I know he's not a goalie, but it was a reference to his giant head and how awful he was with the fans back then.
