Morning Free Association, Happy Bastille Day

Ew

What’s he doing here?

So, I went to the Foxboro Pro League last night and was reminded that despite the rosters being set and posted, not everyone is on the ice each Wednesday night at the Foxboro Sports Center. For instance, I can tell you that Jimmy and Kevin Hayes were playing, both with borrowed numbers, and Brian Boyle wasn’t; there were two number 10s on the black-garbed team and neither of them was Keith Yandle (but one was Kevin Hayes). I spotted Noah Hanifin on one rink but no Jack Eichel. And Mike Condon, noted backup to Carey Price, was the goaltender for a team of mostly college players. Oh, and I spotted no one’s favourite Bruins “reporter”, Joe Haggerty, grabbing a roster sheet and disappearing, presumably to the second floor where people can get a cats-eye view of two rinks.

Anyway, this is all well and good, but y’all probably want some Bruins related stuff. How about this:

What’s great about this deal is that it’s a one-way deal, which means that he’s likely to stay up with the big club. The term and money are good too, because if he sucks, he can just go away.

There was also this news about our old friend, Walter Colin Miller:

So, Miller is going to be a $1 million cap hit for the next two years on a one-way deal. So, Chiller will be up in Boston this year, which makes one wonder if there are going to be any more defensive signings.

Discuss.

Oh, and finally, Happy Bastille Day!

Finally got a work computer. B2B is a blocked site. Womp womp.

I’ll be around, but since it will have to be on mobile, it’s likely to be a lot more sporadic from here on out. On the one hand that sucks because I liked being able to have you guys on a background tab. But on the other hand, his job was probably going to have me too busy anyways. Plus, its probably a good thing that my focus won’t be diverted at first. Gotta make a good impression after all (especially because I have vacation days in my first week)

To;dr: I’ll be here somehow.

Booo! Considering the massive number of articles per day and untold dozens of readers this site has, how can you blame them? roll

However, you might try to see if it is just a matter of your browser being petulant. Try explicitly giving your browser “https://bobbytobergy.com” with the ‘https’ and no ‘www’, so it doesn’t have to do a redirect.

That all said, I’m clearly going to have to make sure I don’t get autocorrected to kingdom come since I’m not used to mobile.

The Habs may have fired their fancy stats guy for vehemently opposing the Subban trade:

Good morning, people.

Busy, busy week. Workhusband on vacation, and crazypants on vacation as well, so it’s been rough.

Bastille Day already?!

Really happy with Chiller and Morrow deals. Seems like we’re going to move a defenseman, though, since we have all these one-way contracts, no?

IntentionallyWidenberg

With 7D signed to 1-way deals, one would think that they are done acquiring defensemen this off-season.

I wonder if they had something else in the works (Trouba, Demers, Shattenkirk) that fell through, causing them to pull the trigger on these relatively easy deals.

Still, these are cheap enough that either player can be buried in Providence if they fail to work out, or something better comes along.

Do they sign a veteran guy (Nick Grossman, Barret Jackman) to a one year insurance deal in case of injury or general suckiness?

Only question is whether they require waivers. I never know how to determine that easily

Love both contracts. Saw someone complain about them being one way which just boggles my mind. For one, if they suck they can be buried in Providence for free (or a whopping 50K for Miller this season) and it’s not like they can’t be send down on a one-way deal.

Morning All! Making a screen house for the blueberries today. The blueberry bushes are loaded this year. Making a more permanent structure to keep deer and birds away.
Nice double header last night, one more tonight.
Coffee is tasting pretty good these days.
Sunday the month of no drinking is over. What to drink, what to drink?

I’m thinking bourbon is a good choice. Are there such a thing as bourbon bagels?
