Around the Twitterverse: Tweets of the Week Around the Bolts Nation

Welcome back to our Friday feature, Around the Twitterverse!!

This has certainly been a volatile week in the NHL.

On Sunday we had the NHL Draft, where representatives from all 30 teams in the National Hockey League came together in New Jersey to take their picks from the league’s top prospects.

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 agree with you, Christy. He is one of the biggest draws, at least for me, to head to Prospect Camp this weekend.

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.


I agree completely.

Now we’ll see some reaction from the Bolts Nation about the signing of center Valterri Filppula.


It is obvious that we are getting a well-loved player from Detroit. That is always a good sign.

I agree, I am getting more and more excited for next season as Yzerman’s plan starts to unfold.

As am I…as am I.
