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 finally here! This weekend in particular. Tomorrow, the Lightning hosts their annual Fan Fest at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.
Hopefully, the weather holds out, and it turns out to be a wonderful day.
There are only 21 more days until the puck drops for the very first time in the 2013-14 Tampa Bay Lightning hockey season.
There is definitely a lot to talk about this week. We have the beginning of Training Camp, which opened up on Wednesday, Fan Fest set to kick off tomorrow, and coming up very soon will be the start of the preseason.
Hockey is definitely right around the corner.
It’s about time we get down to business here, so without further ado, I give to you this week’s Tweets of the Week from in and around the Bolts Nation.
If they would announce the Team Captain at fan fest, that would be awesome #TBLightning

As much as I would love to see that happen, I still think it is a little earlier than Yzerman intends on. Could be wrong, though.

I think it’s pretty cool that he is taking time out to interact with the fans.
#TBLightning 1st-round pick Jonathan Drouin looking very impressive in his first day of camp. Great hands shooting the puck & scoring.

Drouin is going to be an amazing asset to the team. It’ll be scary to see what he can do when teamed up with St. Louis or Stamkos.
Re: Rinaldo hit, Ryan Malone said “It all works itself out later.” In other words get ready for a face pounding punk #TBLightning

I think that’s a polite way of saying, it’s about to be on like Donkey Kong.
It’s the most…wonderful time…of the yearrrrrr! #TBLightning

Oh, hockey season…how I love thee.
#TBLightning camp starts today! Hockey is (kinda) back! Woooo!

Not totally, but it sure is a good start.

Hockey talk makes me happy too.
Drouin undressed the panthers goaltender and went top shelf #TBLightning

I can’t wait to see him on the ice this season. Hopefully, we get that chance.

Hey, it’s ok. Everyone has to splurge a little on their birthday. Just make sure you run a few extra miles.
