Say hello to @Giostyle21 (Brian Gionta!)

Awesome moniker for an awesome player.

http://twitter.com/#!/Giostyle21

He had a picture of himself earlier, looks like he removed it though.

EDIT: here it was


For some reason twitter.com isn't showing the above or his tweet:


EDIT 2: Or not: https://twitter.com/#!/giostyle21/st...42166057525248

Yeah he's had it for a bit, just never publicized it until Darche tweeted it recently.

Also, boy's got some swagggg going on with a Swiss Olympian.

They're both technically Swiss Olympic hockey players. I wouldn't be surprised if that's how they met.

I wonder if Habs management were like (wink wink hint hint nudge nudge) fans want more active twitter members. Or is it because they want to?

Pics or it ain't true.

Good to see the Captain. I was hoping Lapierre would get an account and start competing with Biznasty... oh well

Gio posted 4 minutes ago about concern over his photo. He's putting a new one up.

Did he delete everything?

I thought I saw Cammy say something about his picture, telling him not to forget to smile lol.

EDIT: nevermind, I guess I didn't click the button to load his tweets, this new twitter format sucks.

here's his tweet: @Giostyle21 nice pic...don't be afraid to smile...I'm coming over fro some ball hockey tonight.

If that's the Swiss netminder, they are.

I remember Cassie Campbell saying something about the Swiss female hockey team's goalie dating Weber, so she's use to hard shots.

I bet Cammalleri helped with Gionta's Twitter name.

Anyone else got a feeling they were encouraged to do this by management?

Kinda seems like it. If so its quite the change from a few years ago when BGL was on the team and he was writing a weekly column on sportsnet.ca but Gainey told him to stop.

Because no one gives a flying **** about "the code", or about the green party.

Even if it is just management telling them to use it, I don't care, I love it, I love following all our players on there.

On a side OT note, I am still learning French, what does Le jeune vebaire mean? The young...?

Vebaire is the way Pierre and Benoit pronounce Weber's name. It's actually the correct way to say it.

Benoit always says ''The young vebaire''

EDIT: Haha, just saw Lapierre's subscriptions on his twitter. He only has 9, which are pretty much Jessica Alba, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston, 1-2 SI models, and Jessica Drake, a pornographic actress.

Well in the very last playoff game, after Weber scored his goal, Brunet said 'I guess I should stop calling him 'le jeune Vebèrre', he's not that young anymore!'.

At least he FINALLY realized it lol. What makes me laugh is realizing just how many people do that with him though, I heard Dany Dubé do it a whole lot too. Not too sure why it stuck to him so much.

Not sure why? The same reason people believe a lot of the stuff they hear and regurgitate it all over the place. Because the media brainwashes us (Ahem Brunet) by constantly calling him it.

I'm surprised, thought we'd have to wait until he was 30 until Brunet would stop calling him it

It's not surprise to me though, repeat something enough times...
