Not that this is all that scandalous or anything, I just think it’s hilarious:

Earlier today, rumours came out that the Edmonton Oilers had made Ales Hemsky a contract extension offer worth $10 million over two years.

And that’s when the Calgary Flames official Twitter feed took the Battle of Alberta to the internets.


The tweet has since been deleted.

Prediction: wrong account selected on TweetDeck. I do it all the time, so I feel for the guy.


UPDATE: Damage control!

And don’t look now, but #FlamesTwitter is starting to gain traction as a hashtag….

  1. Looks like someone forgot to switch accounts :)

  2. Apparently the Blue Jackets Twitter account is also having a surprisingly sarcastic day.

  3. Funnier than Stajan at $4,500,000 or Bouwmeester at $6,600,000? I don’t think so.

  4. This is a little funny……Ales Hemsky,…this is a lot of money for a guy that scores under 20 goals.????

  5. I thought the Tweet Deck mix-up too. Still, you’d expect *slightly* more professionalism from an NHL team’s account. Pretty hilarious incident though.

    Next thing the Oilers account is going to be getting DMs from the @NHLFlames account saying “You won’t believe the nasty rumours people are saying about you!”

  6. Stajans 4.5 mill is gross, but im pretty sure its a jfj contract that was kindly sent to cgy when suter spread his cheeks to move Dion to Tor
