Apparently Twitter is a news source now, utilizing the killer combination of poor grammar and non-factual opinions.
However, the NHL players' accounts are a lot cleaner than those of the NFL—what with Arizona Cardinals lineman Darnell Dockett tweeting about "almost" bringing his gun to practice.
Docks daily life is strikingly similar to a smooth pimp daddy like myself, however, it's only a matter of time until owners step in and add a "no-twitter clause" to player contracts—keeping that "Professional" title pure.
For the gun-free National Hockey League, however, Twitter serves as a fabulous medium for fans to connect with their favorite NHL players. Above is one of the many images taken from the NHL All-Star Game where players used Twitter during the SuperSkills competition. Scotty H even had a beanie made with his @Hartsy19 Twitter account on it.
In case you are new to Twitter, here's a fabulous list put together by acidking17 himself with the best NHL twitter accounts. Enjoy.
RIP Dock, the true acid king.
