The NHL announced last week that uniform guidelines will be more heavily enforced during the 2013-14 season. According to the rules outlined by the league, players will no longer be allowed to tuck their jerseys into their pants, have their elbow pads exposed or cut their pants.

Safety is so fucking lame sometimes, you know?
Anyways, here are the five funniest hockey-related tweets of the past week:
Kaleta's one of those guys you hate to play against but hate to play with.— Jeff O'Neill (@odognine2) September 21, 2013

Capitals announce they'll host the 2015 Winter Classic. PHWA announces Alex Ovechkin will play in that game, the alumni game & a kids game.— Adam Proteau (@Proteautype) September 21, 2013

@cyclelikesedins who will be the first opponent to stealthily tuck his adversary's sweater? My money's on Ott.— Whine Country (@whine_country) September 19, 2013
Whine Country didn't even put a dot in front of the @ in this one to make sure all of his followers could see it. That's just the kind of humble, understated human being he is trying to convince everyone that he is!
Seriously though the idea of tucking someone else's jersey to get them in trouble is insanely hilarious and I love it.

If @wingingitmotown ever learns about a joke format other than puns we're all in serious trouble.
#1 -The Fake Dan Ellis Memorial Tweet of the Week!
Maybe ESPN should just quit covering sports entirely? They really don't seem to be doing a very good job of it these days.
Remember, if you see a funny hockey tweet during the week and think it deserves a place in the top five, send it to me @MegalodonBOC .
