UPDATES: Player Agent Allan Walsh Controversy

Rocket All HabsCorrespondent INovember 9, 2009

Dave Stubbs of Habs Inside/Out has an excellent article in today's National Post and Montreal Gazette regarding Allan Walsh:

It would appear that Allan Walsh miscalculated the outcome of his tweet about Carey Price. Perhaps he hoped to ignite the brush fire, then be out of sight by the time other users fuelled the blaze by re-sending his message throughout the twitter-verse. He probably didn't count on being challenged, and, as a result, got burned.

Maybe it shouldn't be a surprise that Walsh deleted the Price tweet and all messages sent to All Habs from his Twitter account. However, here's a screen shot of Walsh's account prior to the deletions. (Thanks to @miss_georgia)
