Nice quiz, thanks. Pretty sure Roland Melanson was the original "Rollie the Goalie". I haven't heard it used for Roloson, but I suppose it's possible some fans copied Melanson's nickname after the fact and called Roloson the same thing. At the very least you should probably accept both. Also, some alternate spellings for Lundqvist and Gaudreau might help....I knew them both but couldn't get the spelling to work.

I added Melanson as an acceptable answer. I based the original list on this wikipedia entry : [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ice_hockey_nicknames] Which includes Roloson but not Melanson. For Lundqvist and Gaudreau I have a bunch of different spellings that it will accept, but I know they aren't the easiest names to spell. Any suggestions on spellings that I should add?
