Welcome back to our Friday feature, Around the Twitterverse!!
This has certainly been a volatile week in the NHL.
Today, the NHL Free Agency takes into effect. There have already been a flurry of movement amongst all the teams; even the acquisition of center Valtteri Filppula from the Detroit Red Wings.
Tomorrow, we head to Prospect Development Camp. This will be not only the team, but the fans’ first opportunity to see the new Lightning prospects in action on the ice. If you would like to attend, Prospect Camp is free and open to the public. You can see the complete schedule and roster here.
Today, we will take a look at the reactions to the draft and opinions on the Lightning’s newest center.
Now, we send the focus back to you, the fans, as we take a look at the Tweets from around the Bolts Nation this week.
I’m very excited and I’m hoping to see Jonathan Drouin on Saturday! Plus our other prospects!

I agree with you, Christy. He is one of the biggest draws, at least for me, to head to Prospect Camp this weekend.
Jonathan Drouin: The NHL’s Next Big Thing #Lightning

You very well could be right, Billy. We’ll know a little more after Prospect Camp.
I think I speak for everyone when I say, “Is It October Yet?”
I am dying to see what he has to offer. He seems to have a more aggressive play style on the ice. Something the Lightning have been lacking as of late. It’ll be nice for us to stop getting knocked around so much.

Big fan of the Adam Erne pick for Tampa. They could use the size up front. — Brent Manara (@THG_Brent) June 30, 2013
I agree completely.
Now we’ll see some reaction from the Bolts Nation about the signing of center Valterri Filppula.
Welcome to TBL. Filppula #BoltsNation

It is obvious that we are getting a well-loved player from Detroit. That is always a good sign.
2. Filppula is a responsible skater in all areas of the ice. Yzerman is very familiar with him. He will be SCL behind Stamkos. I like it.

I agree, I am getting more and more excited for next season as Yzerman’s plan starts to unfold.
with Tampa Bay drafting Drouin and signing Filppula, I am looking forward to Lightning hockey next season — Darren Green (@DareGreen43) July 5, 2013
As am I…as am I.
