I might be late on this one, but I caught this video on Stock Market TV and made me think about why Twitter is so popular with athletes in the other major North American sports and not so popular among NHL players. That’s an issue that requires more thought than I have time right now, so I don’t really want to get it all the way into it.  I’m presumptuous enough, though, to guess that an absence of post-secondary education with the majority of hockey players would play some role in it. Geography, intense training schedules, no desire, yada. A whole bunch of reasons why. Anyway, it’s something to think about given that the strong social media presence of the NHL and hockey in general. Seriously, Dan Ellis gets mentioned on Hockey Night In Canada just for saying some relevant shit. Remember Martin Havlat/Allan Walsh’s Twitter-trouncing of the Chicago Blackhawks? Hmm, maybe that’s got something to do with it…
