Hockey Hilarity: Through the Grape-Vine

  Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! If you’re a hockey fan, you use social media, and you don’t follow the Phoenix Coyotes‘ Paul Bissonnette at @BizNasty2Point0 I don’t understand you as a person because you’re missing out on gems of tweets like this.

Harry Z Fight Club

His Name Was Harry Z

On April 1, 2013 the Flyers traded away Harry Zolnierczyk. The members of the Flyers have been trained to lose all identity so they could dissolve into one cohesive orange and black unit. They were trained to live for the crest on the front, not the name on the back. When one of them was moved from the team, the players didn’t understand it. Zac Rinaldo looked up, tears in his eyes. He understood the situation less than anyone. “Why did Flyer 37 have to leave? What does it all mean?” Looking around the room, Kimmo Timonen asked,  “Are you …
