The Detroit Red Wings and LA Kings Exchange Twitter Blows

The Los Angeles Kings Twitter account gained serious notoriety during the NHL Playoffs where they went around and ruthlessly made fun of different franchises, players and their Twitter accounts and nobody fired back any good chirps.  That changed today when they took a shot at the Detroit Red Wings:

The reason for the initial stab at the Wings was the Kings were having their writers go through and make predictions for next year’s playoffs; something that seems completely futile due to the guaranteed lockout.  I tend to think that the LA Kings account is run by a group of unemployed comedic writers, and I certainly hope that more NHL Twitter accounts join the smack talking; it keeps things interesting and they’re usually pretty funny.

The Kings did do what they do best though, and fired a shot back at Detroit.

I have to give the nod to the Red Wings on this one, chirping a team that has only won two cups in the last ten years, when you’ve only won one in 45 years is a bit of a stretch.  That being said, they have had some amazing chirps, and here are some of the best from the playoffs:

    The Wings won their last cup in 2008, only 4 years ago not 10. Just sayin’

      Meant to say “only won one cup in the last ten years” instead of “has not”…then I realized the cup in 01-02 falls under that last decade, which makes it two…thanks for the heads up on the correction.

    Typical of anything LA–classless masquerading as trendy. Can you say….”Kardashian”??Go eat a $40 hamburger washed down with a $25 beer. Oh, and don’t forget to soak your sucker-fans out of $200 for a t-shirt because you’re ……LA.

    Love the twitter smack. Keep it clean boys and have fun with it; unfortunately, all teams may have a lot of time this fall to do so…..

    Pens looking to sign Pirates closer Joel Hanrahan as insurance against continued implosion from Goalie Marc Andre Fluery. After all, Hanrahan does save more than Fluery !
