Regarding "Pels". I don't think the PR department (or whatever department) of the team gets to choose the shortened or bastardized version of the official nickname, especially well ahead of any name change even occurring. This needs to happen naturally, and the short version shouldn't necessarily be one that the team likes a whole lot. That's where the fun is.
