It is time to introduce a new feature here at Editor In Leaf called Tweet of the Week. It will feature a tweet that I think is good to post from Leaf players or staff. This week features Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk who quoted a Score tweet featuring Flyers forward Scott Hartnell:

Any tweet featuring Scott Hartnell falling down is funny and it was evident in that tweet. I wonder how Dion Phaneuf felt though considering he and Hartnell have a bit of a history. Did he laugh? Did he put it to the side and focus on the season? What if he had a talk with JVR to tell him about why he can’t talk to Hartnell?
Who knows, but it is good to see JVR have some smiles while the Leafs throw their season in the toilet. Seriously, they really needed this. These are sad times in Leafland so why not have a laugh about it, right? We all need a laugh as Leaf fans or you know, punch some walls, but I wouldn’t recommend the latter option. Check back next week as TOTW will return with another Maple Leaf tweet.
