Ottawa Senators star defenceman Erik Karlsson might make $6.5 million a year and is probably one of the most gifted players in the NHL, but that doesn't mean that he can get good service from his internet service provider.

Karlsson angrily tweeted about the service he was getting from Bell on Tuesday afternoon.

What's worse, it seems that the Bell customer service rep helping the player hung up on him. Which led to a second angry tweet.

Karlsson's tweets also inspired these two zingers from Globe and Mail hockey writer James Mirtle.

Mirtle also pointed out that Bell also own a certain Sens rival.

In a follow-up tweet, Karlsson tempered this criticism a little.
