Best insider to follow on Twitter

I am actually rather new to the entire world of Twitter but was wondering who is the best NHL insider to follow?

Bob Mackenzie is good as well as Darren Dreger but wanting someone different. I have been following **************

Any others?

Word is that Dreger called Ecklund two weeks ago and told him to keep the Wideman deal hush hush, apparently on Bobby's orders

Not the best but does tend to have the angle on Russian related things.

it's called a "running gag". and only Pens fans are allowed to use it. we're the ones who have to listen to him, or at least act like we're somewhat interested in his blurbs.

Pretty much the only one that is right like 95% of the time is Bob, he generally only speaks the truth, or very strong rumors, but this can sometimes make him slightly behind others.

Honestly, I just follow them all, even if the rumor is normally false(Like Ecklund) ill still read it just for the sake of reading it.

Must say though, I think Hockey Break might have a negative opinion around here, but he's actually pretty good. He broke a few trades at the draft a good couple of minutes before anyone else.
