Definitely deserves it's own thread. They made a big name for themselves last year as the Kings won the Cup with their twitter account trolling the entire NHL on the way. They are legitimately hilarious. Last night, they got into this exchange with my Eyes on the Prize cohort Laura (@theactivestick), and it was awesome:

That's awesome. It's best when they start talking smack. :lol:

Whoever runs the Blue Jackets Twitter feed isn't half bad either.

Has the Official Kings Twit had anything to say on the brilliant move of having black paint under the ice? I can't wait to see how that works out.

Many questioned the ability to track the puck with the addition of the black paint, and in response Bailey, the mascot, quickly tweeted pictures of the Boston Bruins, Philadelphia Flyers, and Chicago Blackhawks home ice logos for comparison. Fans will have to wait and see how it fares when the season officially begins in less than a month.


Still...that's a lot of black paint. We'll see I guess.

Good point about the other teams with black, but yeah those are generally lines, not large areas of black. And I'm glad to hear they actually DID reply via Twitter to criticism. :lol:

Hey, it could be worse. The Sheffield Steelers of the UK based EIHL sold some of their rink to ad space that painted the ice black.... right behind the goal line, both behind and in the net.

Yeah I saw that too. Brilliant. I hear to combat the issue they're going to use white pucks.
