Morning Free Association, June 29

Or is it?

Good morning! Not too much news on the Bruins front for you all this morning except for

Woah an offer sheet! IN THIS ECONOMY!?! According to jetsnation an offer sheet of 49 mil over 7 years wouldn’t cause a cap hit in the 9 million range but only 7 due to the rules of offer sheets saying to divide the contract by 5. It’s still a major gamble and one the Bruins might need to make based on this:

Obviously we wont know the validity of it until Friday, but it’s still a gamble. Offer sheeting Trouba though is a much better idea than sending one to Columbus for Seth Jones.

What do you think?

I can forgive you if you don't like Rask. I can't forgive you if you think he's garbage. You're wrong

HOLY MACKINAW!

The Oilers just traded Taylor Hall to the Devils for a package including Adam Larsson.

Peter Chiarelli is the first GM to trade the top two picks from the same draft (2010, Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin).— Nicholas W. Goss (@NickGossNESN) June 29, 2016

He had to do something like that, but I think he may have gotten less than face value. Will wait for details to arrive.

I’ve never had Good Friday off in the working world. Only in school.

I’ll take one for the team then, because I don’t remember. Probably because I was 5 when production stopped.

How is everyone on this fine humpday?

  • Need more coffee. Gonna be another big one.
  • Still fighting with my crush over $1. Apparently IOUs over 25 cents make him nervous. So cute.
  • Why would Looch and Demers go to Edmonton?
  • With Looch, you can make the case that Edmonton isn’t terribly far from Vancouver, but Demers is from Quebec. Also, it’s certainly not the Oilers’ recent success that’s drawing them in, you know?
  • So the question is… did they make that visit just to be cordial? (probably not) Is Looch a big Chiarelli guy, is that why? What’s Demers’ deal?
  • Is the Trouba thing realistic? I don’t think we should be dumping draft picks like that. That said, if it’s for a young defenseman who can anchor the top pair… maybe we should?
  • I’m going to see The Muppet Movie on the Greenway next Wednesday night and I’m very excited.
  • Skated last night at the place with the really soft ice. I definitely was more hurty after my two week break. Not slacking – had that wake and funeral, and June is our super busy month, so going during lunch has been tough.
  • Free agency is Friday and I’m going to be at the beach and missing it all. That’s OK, it’ll be totally worth it.

    I’ll be at a wedding. After last year’s shit show on that day, perhaps its for the best we miss it live.
