Which Sabre gets ownership of the nickname 'Reggie'?
- Andrej Sekera. He's been with the team the longer of the two, he gets it. (45%, 25 Votes)
- Robyn Regehr. He is the elder statesman of the defense corps, which has some priveleges. (33%, 18 Votes)
- Neither, as 'Reggie' doesn't make sense for either one (see my reasoning on this below). (22%, 12 Votes)

It started when I heard Rhett Warrener (and possibly Jordan Leopold?) call Robyn Regehr ‘Reggie’ in interviews, and I haven’t been able to shake this VERY IMPORTANT question ever since. Many of you know I have a problem with Andrej Sekera being called ‘Reggie’, because the J IS SILENT in his name. But! Robyn Regehr’s claim in that regard is no better – Reg-ear is the G sound, not the J sound. This team, as far as I’m concerned, has NO Reggie.
Actually, not that I think about it, Silent J would be an outstanding nickname for Sekera. I think it shall be my goal this season to get that into common usage. Help me out!
