So over the last few months I have seen some fun or interesting tweets from former, future and current NHL players. Not sure if there will be enough for this thread to survive but lets give it a shot...

Zemgus Girgensons@zemgus94
This weather is making me wear winter jacket some swim trunks and timberlands plus umbrella #confused #rocweather #whattoexpect


... so glad he is a Sabres cuz this is great!

I've kicked around the idea of un-following Z simply because of all the bad jokes he re-tweets. I just turned off the re-tweets.

There's a way to turn off re-tweets?!  I might start re-using twitter if I can figure that out.

Figured out.  Let's see how this works out without Dreger retweeting everything.

Yeah, I'm pretty close too. His sense of humor doesn't mesh with mine.

I always respect people with senses of humor though, even if they're terrible (probably my Dad's fault).  Reading those bad jokes made me think better of Zemgus, even though they made me cringe.

You need to meet someone who spouts off with nothing but racist jokes 24/7.  You may have a change of heart after that one.

Retweeting "######" jokes doesn't show a sense of humor. It shows me he's not ready to be an NHL player, on several levels.

Edit: Oh, jeez. #####=pejorative for gay person, starting with f.

The one that is a homophone for a type of boat or the one that means cigarettes in Britain?

(Don't bother answering.  I know.)

Is he really doing that?  His agent, at the VERY least, if not team management, should step in and shut that nonsense down.

If Z did have a joke like that on his twitter, then I don't really think that would mean that he's not ready to be an NHL player. English is his second language and how many times do you think he's heard English speaking hockey players say it on the ice?  Political correctness is definitely something he has to learn, but he's still 18.

Yup: NEVER judge a man until you have walked a mile in his shoes. Unless he is wearing crocs. At that point you know he's a ######.  (credit for this tweet goes to @HILARIOUS <_< )

I've met several people like that (gotta love nowhere, NY), and obviously it's not really what I had in mind when I said that.  Thanks for reminding me about people that piss me off, WB.
