Failed NHL Bestsellers

This is a guest post by Nick, an Ottawa Senators fan living in Toronto.
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. In my mind, the comedy of hockey on Twitter took off earlier this year when Dan Ellis (formerly: @33dellis) pronounced his displeasure with the NHL taking 18% of his $3 million contract. 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.
