Alexander Steen Needs New IKEA Couch

Any reader, with an IKEA-employee discount, can help Alexander Steen from the St.Louis Blues? See, thanks to the "National Conversation" on Twitter, we all know that Alex needs a new couch. And more supervision for his 3-year-old Kingston. We'll leave the latter to Super Nanny but a brand new couch is needed.

Isn't progress great? Just look at this picture from 25 years ago, when Alexander was born and his dad was playing in the NHL. Since then, we have ads on the boards, got rid of the goofy Jofa helmets, shipped teams to lucrative American markets, and are directly connected to players so they can tell us, in real-time, what's really important.

Halak's Agent Bashes Carey Price

Allan Walsh, the agent - for now! - of Canadiens goalie Jaroslav Halak had a simple comment on Twitter a few moments after a 3-1 Habs lost where struggling Carey Price was the goalie:
In response to negative reactions, and realizing his faux-pas, he started to backpedal and posted the following comment which doesn't seem to make anything better:


Interestingly enough, those Tweets ended up being scrubbed from Twitter later on as if they were never made. Not sure how that was achieved given that what happens on Twitter supposedly stays on Twitter.

Mr. Walsh might have stated the facts properly in his Twitter comment but he apparently forgot that he has to keep a certain level of professionalism as Halak's agent. Not sure that Halak is very happy about the episode.

There are comments that you keep for yourself and broadcasting them on Twitter is not exactly the way to do so. Anyone wants to bet that for a while, Walsh will use Twitter - as most do - only to let the world know what he had for breakfast?

Aren't you glad we follow Twitter for you?

Tie Domi Begging for Votes

Is that really what it comes down to? You have a 10-year NHL career, you retire after earning nearly $15M, you enroll into some cheesy TV figure skating competition, and you beg for votes on Twitter and Facebook in exchange for autographed photos (click on screenshot below to enlarge and read)? Sad.

PS: Yes, using the words "NHL career" for Tie Domi is weird.

Coffee or Tea - Caps' Mike Green Must Know

Washington Capitals' defenseman Mike Green is on Twitter. Who isn't, really? And not only does he feel the need to tell the world that he has a passion for coffee but he wants to know if you - yes, random you - prefer coffee or tea. We assume he cares for the answers he's receiving from adoring fans. If you're not on Twitter, you can presumably send him a postcard with your answer to Verizon Center, C/O: Green Life, 601 F Street, NW, Washington, DC 20004.


Aren't you glad we patrol Twitter for you?
