The head equipment manager of the Minnesota Wild isn't a fan of the Edmonton Oilers. In fact, he's not a fan of the city of Edmonton in general. How do we know this? Well, Styleswild on Twitter or Tony Dacosta based on the matching photo from the Wild's site, chose to bash the city and the team through a series of Tweets.
After time passed, Dacosta decided to remove the controversial Tweets from Twitter, along with his profile picture. Of course, as we all know, deleting something off of Twitter doesn't really do much when savvy fans out there take screenshots of what you are trying to remove.
If you think this might be some sort of hoax or impersonator, scan through some of the photos on the Styleswild Twitter account. You'll find more than enough proof that the account does indeed belong to a Minnesota Wild employee.
As for the Tweets themselves, Dacosta started by calling Edmonton a "s...hole", as seen in the photo at the top of this ...

First, take a look at the video put together by SBNation of the hit Taylor Hall had on Cal Clutterbuck last night.
I’m not a scholar of the NHL, despite my other gig at Barry Melrose Rocks, so you are all entitled to your own opinions, but to me, it looked like Taylor Hall had intent to hit Cal Clutterbuck. That’s the problem with the hit, in my mind. What I don’t believe...
ST. PAUL, Minn. As Zach Parise scans the Minnesota Wild locker room, he only sees NHL players, teammates that are trying to push for a championship this season.
Parise knows the veterans in the locker room and sees the young rookies trying to make their mark. Parise, signed long-term in Minnesota with his 13-year contract, doesn't look toward the future and doesn't see...
This is a pretty vicous hit and then some, via We All Bleed Red on YouTube (with both feeds):
Minnesota forward Cal Clutterbuck had to be helped off the ice late in the third period of Thursday's 3-1 victory at Edmonton with what appeared to be an injured left leg. Edmonton's Taylor Hall received a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct...
THURSDAY'S STORY LINE: On Aug. 25, 1982, Oilers defenseman Nick Schultz was born in Strasbourg, Saskatchewan. Four and a half months later, on January 10, 1983, Wild defenseman Tom Gilbert was born in Bloomington, Minn.
Like many young boys growing up and Canada and Minnesota, the two dreamed of playing in the NHL.In 2000, Schultz's NHL dream was close to becoming a reality...
Minnesota Wild forward Cal Clutterbuck has seemingly avoided a major injury after taking a lethal knee-on-knee hit from Edmonton Oilers forward Taylor Hall Thursday night, but Hall won't be avoiding suspension.
The NHL announced a two-game ban for Hall, the first of his young career, after a vicious hit on Clutterbuck in Thursday's 3-1 Minnesota win in Edmonton. Hall, who...
You're probably familiar with the old Master Card commercials. Where the commercial lists various items along with their prices and then at the end it will list something simple and likely non-material and it will simply say "Priceless." The commercial resonated with people for making that connection between the things people buy and what really cannot be bought...

Selective amnesia, its one of those things I come across on a daily basis as an educator, when a student tries to think of a creative way to tell me an assignment hasn't been completed. "I didn't know it was due" or other forms of selective amnesia. The stereotypical "my dog ate my homework" is more myth than anything bound in reality. So what do...
