    The account he lists, is just the account for the paper's sports page.

    As of right now we have no beat reporter. The following are guys who work for the team but report official info and practice info, etc.

    @KWilsonPreds - Team PR guy.

    @TomAWillis - Team's Interactive Media Manager

    @brooksbratten - Team's Interactive Media Manager

    Just curious if TSN is still doing text message updates for trades or if anyone can recommend something else?

    Yeah if you have the TSN GO app you should get them. The Score's app is really good for trade alerts too.

    Re Blackhawks

    Unfortunately, Tim Sassone passed away last March - so he can be removed from the list.

    Mark Lazerus (@MarkLazerus), the beat writer from the Chicago Sun Times should be added.

    Brian Hedger (@BrianHedger), the Hawks writer for NHL.com should be added.

    The twitter account you have for Scott Powers (@ESPNChiHawks) is the ESPN account for the Hawks he runs. Powers also has he own account (@ESPNChiPowers) - he typically tweets to both accounts simultaneously, but it might be worthwhile adding is own account.

    You have Tracy Myers, the CSN writer for the Hawks - but CSN also has an additional Blackhawks account (@CSNBlackhawks)

    The other CSN writer for the Blackhawks is Nina Falcone (@NinaFalcone) - although Myers is the one who typically 'breaks' things re CSN - so Nina may be redundant :dunno:

    Al Cimaglia (@AlCimaglia) does Blackhawks for NHL radio.

    edit - i don't know if you want to add him or not - but Eric Lear (@BHTVeric) is the active online reporter for Blackhawks TV.

    Thanks.

    You should go ahead and add that CSNBlackhawks account - b/c sometimes that account sends stuff out before Tracy does.

    3 additions I'd suggest:

    - Mike Colligan: Forbes Sports, THW Penguins accredited; he's a colleague of mind so I'm biased, but he is a well respected Pens/hockey business analyst and often a featured guest on many mainstream sports radio shows. https://twitter.com/mikecolligan

    - Darren Haynes: Calgary Flames via Canadian Press; incomparable Flames insight - his Twitter feed is a gold mine

    - Ryan Pike: Calgary Flames via Flames Nation and THW - credentialed Flames writer with unique insight and excellent grasp of the business of the sport as well as analytics.

    No bias needed IMO. Colligan is the only Penguin writer that actually knows anything about the Penguins. I wouldn't trust the local paper guys if they told me the sky was blue.

    You probably should revise the link for Jason Botchford for the Canucks...not the right account.

    Looks like the right account to me, maybe another mod already went in and fixed it.

    It got changed. There's another one that needs to be fixed - also for the Canucks: Hosea Cheung (for now it's linked to a Russian account with 3 followers).

    Removed it altogether since he doesn't appear to cover the Canucks anymore.

    Added to the Hawks section.

    Added those, thanks.

    Thanks, added them. Are any on the Flames' list out of date or no longer relevant?

    Removed Adam Vingan from the Capitals section, as he's moved on to Nashville. Seems like the list is way too short, but can't think of who I'm missing.

    Remove from the Coyotes section -

    Heather Mc****ter - Not doing it anymore since the ownership matter has been resolved.

    Dave Zorn - He's moved on to a position in Northern Arizona.

    ::edit::

    For the Avs add Mike Chambers @mikechambers

    He replaced Adrian Dater as the Avs beat guy at the Denver Post
