Twitter, Havlat, and a Chicago GM
Matin Havlat’s recent updates are almost as good as a paperback novel, insinuating there is a major scandal about to break in Chicago.
He also appears to allege the promotion of Stan Bowman to GM and reassignment of Dale Tallon to Senior Advisor is linked to his contract dispute.
These posts may turn out to be exaggerations of the story, or just a heck of a lot of hype, but the suspense sure is crazy.
A few weeks ago On Frozen Blog ran a great article about Twitter’s effect on the NHL. From fake player accounts to pre-press conference announcements, it has a huge impact on bringing the sport to more fans. (PLUG: you can follow myself, The DC Sports Page, and Big Money Tony too.)
