Is the newest Toronto Maple Leaf good at hockey? We’re not sure yet, but we do know this much: Joffrey Lupul is pretty damn good at Twitter (hat tip to the Globe’s Michael Grange for pointing this out). He’s funny, interesting and tweets about things that don’t involved sticks, skates and a puck. He even uses hashtags with wit and aplomb:


I wonder what would happen if I celebrated after every whistle like an NFL player?? #brokenjaw

If you guys were slightly more trustworthy I’d tell u what in did last night in Montreal…..

I’m still kind of waiting for them to tell me who the real halftime show is…. Here’s hoping for a Fergie #wardrobemalfunction

In honour of Lupul’s social media skills, we decided to look at a few of the other tweetin’ Leafs. Here, four of our favourites.
