The Twitterverse was once again set ablaze Friday afternoon following – you guessed it – more controversial tweets from bored NHLers who are said to be suffering through the league’s ongoing labour strife.

Since September, borderline abusive tweets have poured from players’ fingers, appearing on Twitter and sparking debate among an angry, but increasingly apathetic, fanbase that isn’t afraid to take current and former NHLers to task via social media.
