Twitter has quickly become the new home to the breaking hockey news universe. The workload is primarily shared between TSN analysts, Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger. Smaller roles are shared by some of the usual rumour mongers such as NHLSourcesSay (a.k.a. mystery man Eklund #2), various teams’ beat writers, as well as even some players.

Ellis’ rant led to the popular hashtag: #DanEllisProblems. Of course, in the wake of the aftermath, Ellis deleted his account, but hockey on Twitter lives on.
