Hockey Tweets of the Week – Week 14

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:

Team Canada

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.

Always a Maple Leaf slam.

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.

I’d put odds of that at 50/50.

But don’t forget the real victims of this trade: the consumers!

Christmas is ruined.

This is true! Ryan Johansen built a basketball court with a Blue Jackets logo drawn in the middle.

Yeah, about that …


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

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.

And hopefully for Iginla, people will also forget that it was an ugly one.

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:

I think we can all start treating the Florida Panthers with respect and fear.

Star Wars, Star Trek, Brenda Starr, Starlight Express, Star Magazine …

But not until I order some acid from Amazon so I can get the full effect of that.

And Finally …

Speaking of Jagr …

That’s right, John Scott an All-Star Game captain. It makes certain motivational sayings useless.
