Here is a brief summary of some of the more infamous & controversial tweets of the last year. If you’re interested in reading the comments or adding one yourself feel free to click on the tweet to redirect you to my official Twitter account.
This one seemed to gain ‘likes’ when the Oilers were winning then some people would ‘unlike’ when Oilers were losing. LOL. Posted this beginning of season:
Chiarelli is building his type of team regardless of what impulsive, short sighted fans think. I applaud him. Do u have a Cup on ur resume? pic.twitter.com/bp5fQz5eRG

This sums up my opinion on analytics quite well…
– There is no magic formula that will ever be able to unequivocally predict or encapsulate all that is a hockey player….

Self explanatory. How are these people still blogging about Oilers? Wouldn’t know since they’re all blocked.

This was regarding Eberle & Hopkins 2 of the 3 leftovers from previous regime Chia will eventually replace…
It's why they got their points but team still lost. We know this as last 2 years asked to be complete 2 way players and now they struggle. pic.twitter.com/92XJsnuHmc

This tweet was about the man Chiarelli did replace compared to the guy he brought in instead of him. Some morons from same Twitter circle actually were upset about the ‘X’ under Hall. LOL.

This was probably my favourite and most thought out tweet. Playful piece on my view of our GM. Naturally it received a tonne of hate from the “We’re smarter than you Twitter circle.” Last paragraph in particular is my favourite….
My view of Peter Chiarelli…. pic.twitter.com/kWxTsiKKiC

The jury is still out on this one but I do like the idea of all these trades….
Here are 3 hockey trades that need to happen this offseason IMO. The particulars of the trades might differ slightly but teams shouldn't. pic.twitter.com/aqJTLXT2SQ
