In a trade that truly left us in shock and awe, the Tampa Bay Lightning have traded rookie standout Cory Conacher to the Ottawa Senators for the services of Ben Bishop, yet another NHL back-up goaltender.
To have a good laugh at the Lightning, we bring you the best tweets:
Conacher: is now Senators leading scorer with 24 points. #senators #tradecentre— THE STATS GUY (@TH2NSTATSGUY) April 3, 2013
"It's always a little shocking," says Conacher. "A new start in Ottawa. I'm excited to go to Ottawa."— Bruce Garrioch (@SunGarrioch) April 3, 2013
Whoa, Tampa gave up Conacher? But he was the heir apparent to Marty St. Louis' hilariously tiny throne!— Harrison Mooney (@HarrisonMooney) April 3, 2013
May I bill Yzerman for all the marketing stuff we've printed with Cory Conacher in a TB uniform?— Nate Ewell (@nateewell) April 3, 2013
This Conacher trade is going to come back & bite Yzerman in a bad, ugly way. #TBLightning— Cassie McClellan (@dagmar27) April 3, 2013

steve yzerman is about three personnel decisions away from being a less fat jay feaster— ryan lambert (@twolinepass) April 3, 2013
On a day that hasn't had much entertainment, we should all take a moment to laugh at Steve Yzerman and our Southeast Division opponents.
