Morning Free Association, June-23-2016, ROBBED!

The 2016 NHL Awards were last night, and Bruins won no prizes!

We had our own running thread during the ceremony, but here are some highlights of the awards.
The Bruins players who were finalists for awards were Loui Eriksson for the Lady Byng, and Patrice Bergeron for the Selke.

To a fair amount of surprise, Anze Kopitar won both awards. There also seemed to be differing pronunciations of his name between award presenters, and since he wasn’t there to correct them, the confusion would not be corrected.
Andy Kopitar - Byng winner.
Kopitar won the Selke by a surprisingly large margin in spite of Bergeron’s higher goals, defensive zone starts, faceoff %, and Corsi-rel. In fact the Kings took 3 of the 4 awards they were in the top 5 in voting for, which makes me wonder if the PHWA inducted 20 new members from LA this season.

Also a surprise, the NHL Foundation Award for charitable & community work went to Mark Giordano. Not to downplay Giordano’s efforts, but I have it on good authority that PK Subban personally saved 40,000 puppies from a burning building and trained them to run a chain of luxury soup kitchens.

However, even if the award voters didn’t completely endorse him, it seems like someone is pretty high on him.

To no one’s surprise, the Cap’s goaltender won the Vezina

And finally it was mostly unsurprising (if disappointing) to see Patrick Kane win the Hart trophy.

Talk about ridiculous voting…

Coach of an 84-point team (Hynes) got a 1st and 3rd place Adams vote. They finished 7th in the Metro!
Jagr and Kopitar got 1st place Harts? Yea, no.
Filip Forsberg and his 72% Ozone start got two 1sts and a bunch more Selke votes?
Mark Stone and his 55% Ozone got a 1st Selke vote?

Idiots. Idiots everywhere!

So glad I got drunk watching grass grow last night instead of watching the awards.

Morning folks!

Well uh…. this hasn’t been a fun way to open the day. Replaced 5 more jets which brings my total up to 9 on this unit.

The NHL awards show was awful. Just awful

UnstableElement

Does the printer even have 9 jets, or have some now been replaced twice?

carvinbass18

56.

UnstableElement

UnstableElement

Oh.

That’s, uh, more than 9, I guess.

carvinbass18
Editor

Just a few wink

The issue with me replacing 9 so far is that this is an engineering one and if they had just taken my advice and flushed them all out & put new ones in I wouldn’t be covered in ink & struggling with quality

I wouldn’t be covered in ink & struggling with quality

Somehow, I don’t believe this. Ink and quality would find a way.

So, at Mom’s 96th b’day party she brought up her philosophy. “Life has a way of working itself out.” She knows, oh yes, she knows.

Nah, new parts generally work. Old parts definitely don’t

Good Morning All!
Pulling together my zinc counter top job this morning. I hate/ love these jobs. They are intense as the material is expensive, but very satisfying when completed.
Lots of mowing and shit on tap today.
Coffee was pretty good this morning…. even without the special sauce.
Drinking lots of water!!
Getting pumped for Riverfest!!!

Upset Bergy got robbed. As he did when towes won his award. Ironically this was one of the few years in my lifetime I’ve agreed with the Norris selection. The NPWA has no clue what the fuck they’re doing

Morning all! This week had decided to move at a soul crushingly slow pace. Stupid NHL dickweed voters and their stupid dickweed voting. Also, stupid Red Sox and stupid dickweed fans being dickweeds.

Satan 81's Sister

Also, stupid dickweed construction guys doing constructing things in the parking lot. STOP BEING LOUD I WANT TO OPEN MY WINDOW!

How much notice did you give them?

Two weeks. Ending July 7th. I’m assuming they’ll want me to start the 11th, so I wanted to at least give myself a long weekend. Plus we run a 9/80 work schedule in the summer and half the company will be out on the 8th anyways.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

Awesome. And there’s the 4th of July long weekend so really you only have 8 days left here?

Good morning!

BULLET POINTS BECAUSE I INVENTED THEM AND I CAN:

  • Bergy got robbed.
  • Had to make an emergency Marshall’s run last night because my handsome work crush called me yesterday and asked if I had invited anyone yet, I told him I had but that neither of them could come. He told me that he hadn’t yet, but he was thinking maybe he wouldn’t and it could just be us (I told him I’ve had drinks with creepier people), sooooooo maybe I am misreading things, but this could be going somewhere.

  • Almost draft time! Bring me a Charlie McAvoy!
  • I finally can no longer feel this stupid fucking sunburn, just in time to get to the beach this weekend!
  • Apartment hunting is not going anywhere. Remember when people could afford things in Boston and didn’t need roommates?
  • Coffee.

    Hey, I resemble that remark! (Curly voice over, please)

    Apartment hunting is not going anywhere.
    One of the reasons I keep working where I do is because hunting for a new home and moving really suck.
