Flyers/NHL Twitter

Does anyone have a list of Flyers specific, and general NHL twitter accounts worth checking? I don't use twitter much, but given it's increasing relevance and the fact that more and more stories break there, I'm jumping on the bandwagon. I searched briefly through the forum, but couldn't find a consolidated list anywhere. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Former, current and perhaps Future Flyers players who are active on twitter:

@JLupul
@ScottieUpshall
@JVReemer21
@MikeTestwuide
@stefanlegein

I also recommend following @BizNasty2point0, which is NHL twitter superstar Paul Bisonnette (sp?) of the Coyotes, and @carlhannah, who is our very own Valhoun. Another player I'm following is @grabs40, Michael Grabner of the Islanders, but that is mostly because he's from austria like me.

If you happen to be a fan of beer (who isn't?), "Grabs40" might be the best nickname ever.

tpanotch is great if you want to read about:

referring to himself in the 3rd person
his ****ing dog
his health
referring to himself in the 3rd person again and again
horrible hockey analysis devoid of knowledge
arrogance

the only thing worse than panotch on twitter is him on DNL with the senile Stan Hochman asking why the Flyers went to a hotel after the morning skate on Tuesday thinking they stayed in a hotel the first night back from a road trip and then asking about the all-star game format like it hasn't been explained 100 times over.

Not to mention - how bad does Clement want to punch John Boruk in the head? The guy tries sooo hard but just doesn't understand anything about hockey. All he knows is the Flyers. He probably doesn't even know what the QMJHL is...

And I flat out GUARANTEE the guy cannot skate. I know he cannot skate. That should be a rule - if you can't ****ing skate you shouldn't be allowed to write about hockey.

where is Gormley??? why can't he get a job based on the fact that he is the only soul in PA that knows anything about hockey????? seriously??

why does Kevin Weekes love Byfuglien soooo much?

and don't follow broadstbull or whatever he is - he will annoy the crap out of you. "Zherdev skated" "Richards passed the puck to Nodl" "Briere with a slashing penalty"

good stuff...

Flyers:

@DNFlyers
@AnthonySan37
@PSPhantoms
@Euroflyers

Save yourself the aggravation and don't follow @tpanotch or @sbaicker.

I believe Danny Syrvet has one too. I follow JVR and Testwuide from the Flyers org. As for the NHL:

I love reading about Bissonnette. Awesome dude, humble as hell (he actually retweets the chirps people on twitter post about him) and just loves being a pro.

Commodore was interesting for a while. Andrew Gordon from the Hershey Bears sometimes posts interesting things. However most everyone in the NHL say "Great win" "Awesome to be back home" "Hiller with the great game". I like just the little bit of voyeurism into a professional hockey players life so some are just boring as hell.

@faketpanotch is a blast and seems to have the comical side of Tim down to a 'T' in his mimics. I love following him because he always makes me laugh out loud.

Although not listed as a fake, I believe @C_Giroux28 is fake also.

I believe there are some actual Flyers who have accounts but they don't use them... Only JvR and past Flyers like Uppy, Lupul and Roenick regularly Tweet as far as I know.

It would be great is some of the Flyers players tweeted like some other athletes do.

@MattBarnabyESPN is pretty solid. Hated him as a player, pretty solid as a Twitter/ESPN guy.

@kuklaskorner is generally a NYR blog, but he is good stuff from times to time. No breaking news, just random stuff from around the league.

@TheFourthPeriod is a solid rumor/news guy to follow. Also has some random stuff they post.

@CapGeek is the best. They are great at responding to cap related questions and always clarify junk.

@Kenny_Mayne is just good reading. He is hilarious.
