Good morning ladies and gentlemen. Welcome back for this week’s edition of Around the Twitterverse, where we gather the top tweets from in and around the Bolts Nation and bring you all of the hockey news and opinion that 140 characters can handle.
The weekend is here again! Hopefully this rain that we seem to be getting every single afternoon can take a break and let us soak up some of that amazing Florida sun.
There are lots of happenings this week in the world of hockey.
One of the biggest in the eyes of Bolts fans is the laying of the ice at the Tampa Bay Times Forum yesterday. That can only mean one thing…that hockey is right around the corner.
Well, I guess there is no time like the present to get down to business. Without further ado, I give to you this week’s Tweets of the Week from in and around the Bolts Nation.

It’s always fun to look back on where we have been as a team. Some solid players in that trade.

I count each day as it passes. I can’t wait for the first puck drop of the season!
So guys, we’re actually only 3 weeks away from preseason hockey! #TBLightning

We’re getting closer and closer each day. It will be here before you know it.
Vinny in anything other than a #TBLightning jersey just doesn’t look right

Still a rather sore subject, at least in this house. I don’t know if I will ever get used to seeing him in Orange. It’s just not right.
Jonathan Drouin is now 195lbs, has gained 7 lbs of muscle over the summer, Anyone still think he’s too small to start the NHL?? #TBLightning

There is no such thing as too small for the NHL. Case and point, Martin St. Louis. He is one of the smallest players we have, yet the mightiest on the ice. Size can be very deceptive.
Made it to Newark. Just found out that the flight to Tampa is 3h delayed.

That just sucks. Hope you make it back to town soon.
