Twitter is an excellent avenue for NHL fans to connect with their favorite players and personalities from around the league.
The NHL community is blessed with some of the most entertaining players, analysts and coaches on the social media site. Jeremy Roenick, Paul Bissonette and Bobby Ryan all provide fans with entertainment nearly every day along with dozens of other interesting players.
However, some guys have not caught on to the trend, and it would be pretty awesome if they did. Here are the top 23 personalities Twitter needs.
John Tavares is quickly blossoming into one of the league's brightest stars. It would be awesome to get a look into the Oakville native's day-to-day lifestyle.
Martin St. Louis has overcome all odds to become an NHL sensation. I'm sure he would have some interesting things to tweet about.
If for no other reason, Scott Hartnell's ability to grow outrageous hockey hair and a playoff beard should be enough for fans to want him on Twitter.
Tomas Vokoun seems like a guy that has a lot more going on than meets the eye. Perhaps Twitter could unveil some of that hidden personality.
There is always some sort of controversy surrounding Alexander Semin in regards to him being a poor teammate. It would be a blast to follow him and get his take on some of the things that are said to him.
Anybody who saw Bruce Boudreau on HBO's 24/7 knows exactly why he would be a great addition to Twitter.
Jeff Carter loves to party, so it would be great to see some tweets about his nights out on the town.
Jonas Hiller seemed to have a blast during the festivities at the 2011 NHL All-Star Game. It would be fun to see him interact with the rest of the league on Twitter.
If he could find time between all of the goals he scores, Ilya Kovalchuk could undoubtedly produce some worthwhile tweets.
Drew Doughty is one of the emerging, young personalities in the NHL today. He should be on Twitter so fans and analysts can follow his rise to stardom.
Dion Phaneuf is a strange character. I'd like to follow him on Twitter just to get a better idea of what he is all about.
Zdeno Chara's reaction to winning the Stanley Cup is enough for me to want to learn more about this mammoth of a man.
Sean Avery is never afraid to shoot his mouth off. It seems to me that he would be perfect for Twitter.
Tomas Holmstrom is the man. He's been around the block and would have tons to share with the thousands of fans that would follow him on Twitter.
Dany Heatley has a swagger that would be perfect for the world of Twitter.
Brian Burke is always stirring up the league with bold trades. Why not stir up the social media world with some interesting tweets?
Tim Thomas is such a down to earth guy. Plenty of fans would be able to relate to the goings on in Timmy T's life.
I was surprised to learn that Barry Melrose is not on Twitter. That needs to change very soon.
Marty Turco spent plenty of time on the bench last season in Chicago, but that didn't stop the veteran goalie from having a blast. His antics and personality make him a perfect guy to chirp his former teammates on Twitter.
Shawn Thornton loves to chirp his opponents. So, why not bring that trash talk to Twitter?
Mike Milbury says some pretty stupid things on the air, but stupid is often times entertaining. This applies to Twitter as well.
Phil Kessel is such a likable character. He always has a smirk on his face and plays an entertaining brand of hockey. I'd certainly follow Phil if he were to join Twitter.
Chris Pronger is one of the bet personalities in the NHL today. Plenty of people dislike him, but that would only make following him on Twitter all the more entertaining.
