The Tampa Bay Lightning has no written policy regarding what players can or cannot say on their social media pages or twitter accounts. Safe to assume, though, the team likely will reiterate to goaltender Dan Ellis that he has to be a bit more careful.
Cyberspace went a little bonkers Monday night after Ellis on his twitter account, @33dellis, complained about the 18 percent of salary that, in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement, all NHL players lose to escrow, and how, despite signing a two-year, $3 million contract with the Lightning, “I am more stressed about money now than I was in college.” That after last month getting into a debate over how players deserve the money they get because they are “specialists.”
Not only did Ellis’ twitter account light up, but twitter users began a trending topic called DanEllisProblems that mocked him and on Wednesday evening was still a going concern. The Internet was full of commentary, most of it negative.
