    Can you create a category for NHL-wide insiders? I know that some of them are included in the Extra category, but the list is incomplete and some of the insiders are put into Team categories. Further, the Extra category includes links to places that aren't NHL-wide inside sources.

    Here are a few more NHL-wide insiders:
    Elliotte Friedman - @FriedgeHNIC
    John Shannon - @JSportsnet
    Renaud Lavoie ‏ - @LavoieRenaud

    I'd say the list would include guys like McKenzie, Dreger, LeBrun, Kypreos, Custance, Garrioch etc. The guys who have contacts throughout the whole league.

    Can anyone compile a list of NHL scout twitter handles? I remember seeing a list somewhere but now I can't find it.

    Thanks in advance

    Katie Carrera (@kcarrera) is no longer on the Caps beat, though I suspect she'll still be a reliable if infrequent source, as she's still with the Post.

    She's being replaced on the Caps beat by Alex Prewitt (@alex_prewitt).

    Brian McNally (@bmcnally14) and Sky Kerstein (@SkyKerstein) are no longer on the Caps beat, but, like Carrera, their information is probably still good. To my knowledge neither has been replaced.

    For Nashville, the list is old.

    Josh Cooper is no longer with the Tennessean. He now works for Yahoo Puck Daddy. The current beat writer for this season is Eric Stromgren.
