Welcome to the fourteenth edition of Puck Drunk Love’s number one series of posts about tweets: Tweets of the Week. Hockey Twitter was on fire this week. Let’s take a look at how blue bird reacted to some crazy hockey stories:
This was the first year since 1998 that Team Canada was eliminated before the medal round. You know that hockey crazed Canadians would be up in arms.
Flags in Canada will be flying at half-mast for the next week #WJC

Always a Maple Leaf slam.

Canada may not be in the finals of the WJC, but neither is the USA. So I'm still happy
— Brian Steinman (@briansteinman) January 4, 2016
Well that’s a mature way of looking at… HEY WAIT A MINUTE! USA! USA! USA!
Ryan Johansen Traded
We all thought that the Blue Jackets were going to shake things up, and we knew that Ryan Johansen would be in play. What we didn’t know was that it would come this quick.
The Internet blames one man.

@CellyLikeKadri Well that's down to their idiot coach who just got Johansen traded.
— Mirko (@PuIjujarvi) January 7, 2016
Ryan Johansen: "My relationship with Torts, it was good. … He was just an in-your-face type of coach."
— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) January 7, 2016
— Chris B (@cbeddick66) January 6, 2016
As long as Torts doesn't keep calling him in middle of the night to wake & scream at him, Johansen will finally make Preds legit contenders
— Mike Babcock (@BabcockinTO) January 6, 2016
I’d put odds of that at 50/50.
But don’t forget the real victims of this trade: the consumers!

When you got your dad a Johansen jersey for Christmas
Christmas is ruined.
What will Ryan Johansen do with his Blue Jacket themed basketball court now
— PK Lewis (@NYIslandera) January 7, 2016
This is true! Ryan Johansen built a basketball court with a Blue Jackets logo drawn in the middle.
— Ryan Johansen (@RyanJohansen19) August 3, 2015
Yeah, about that …
Johansen to the Preds. Likely the blue jackets will not win another game

Will Someone Scrape Corey Schneider’s Remains Off The Ice, Please?

Dylan Larkin just murdered Cory Schneider
— Neal Parsons (@NealParsons) January 5, 2016
Dylan Larkin just put Schneider on a poster
— Matt Keegan (@mkeegan17) January 5, 2016
Dylan Larkin just faked out Cory Schneider so bad that Schneider was laying on his belly and facing the wrong way when the puck went in.
— Tomas Terfloth (@toobigatoboggan) January 5, 2016
Dylan Larkin gave that dude a Theo Riddick dead leg. Schneider is gonna need a minute to pick up his jock strap. #RedWings

Oh baby. Have mercy, Dylan Larkin. The man has a family. https://t.co/FzKBHluKxh
— Jordie (@BarstoolJordie) January 5, 2016
I didn't do the math but I think Brad Richards is like 7 times older than Dylan Larkin or something.
— Jeff K (@jeffkman) January 5, 2016
Dylan Larkin. Whoa. Vuoden tulokas. Toiseksi paras tulokas, joka nähty livenä toistaiseksi.
— Jouni Nieminen (@OnsideWithJouni) January 5, 2016
I figured I’d put a Finnish tweet in there in honor of their WJC championship. I think it means something along the lines of “Dylan Larkin is good at this hockey thing.”
Jarome Iginla Becomes A Legend
Jarome Iginla made history with his 600th career goal, which many people will forget in the next ten years that it was scored as a Colorado Avalanche.
iginla plays for the calgary flames what are you all talking about
— kayla (@Iundqvist) January 5, 2016
And hopefully for Iginla, people will also forget that it was an ugly one.
A goal so special that the bench came out to celebrate. Jarome Iginla nets #600. https://t.co/Nf1euJ873v
— NHL (@NHL) January 5, 2016
Congrats to Jake Muzzin on scoring Jerome Iginla's 600th career NHL goal. Off the skate, in the net. #HistoryMade
— Spencer Davidson (@SDavidsonWKTV) January 5, 2016
Sports Jeopardy: "This player scored Jarome Iginla's 600th goal" Who is Jake Muzzin #lakings
— Hockeyguy92109 (@CupChamps77) January 5, 2016
Good thing Iginla scored on an NBC broadcast. Mike Haynes would have had a heart attack.
— Tbone (@tbonius_monk) January 5, 2016
1995 draft class update: Jarome Iginla scores 600th goal tonight. Shane Doan has 381. Steve Kelly stuck on nine.
— Robin Brownlee (@Robin_Brownlee) January 5, 2016
Fun 1995 draft fact: Iginla was drafted 11th. Jean-Sebastien Giguere was drafted 13th. The San Jose Sharks drafted in between the two … and picked Teemu Riihijarvi, who never played in the NHL. #WrongTeemu.
The Roberto Luongo Tweets Of The Week
Because there are multiples … as in multiple instances that Luongo got to wear the Kevin Spacey sweatshirt:
The @KevinSpacey makes an appearance!
— Florida Panthers (@FlaPanthers) January 8, 2016
I think we can all start treating the Florida Panthers with respect and fear.
So Roberto Luongo gets first star, second star, third star, gold star, Bart Starr, Star Jones, Starlin Castro, Wish Upon a Star…all of em.
— Max Horowitz (@themoose0221) January 8, 2016
Star Wars, Star Trek, Brenda Starr, Starlight Express, Star Magazine …
— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) January 8, 2016
But not until I order some acid from Amazon so I can get the full effect of that.
And Finally …
Speaking of Jagr …
Fans-I was afraid,that 3on3 all-Star game may kill me,now,I am more afraid,fighting John Scott 6,8 300 during All-Star, kill me for sure
— Jaromir Jagr (@68Jagr) January 2, 2016
That’s right, John Scott an All-Star Game captain. It makes certain motivational sayings useless.
— Under Armour (@UnderArmour) January 7, 2016
Unless your name is John Scott right?
