Morning Free Association, July 20:
The NWHL Also Does Drafting

The NWHL held it’s 2nd annual entry draft on Monday.

You can see which dreams drafted which players here.
And helpfully, you can see where your Boston Pride is against the cap here. The NWHL cap remains at a whopping $270,000 per roster. They currently have the fewest players locked up of the NWHL teams, with only 2 goaltenders, 2 defensemen and 3 forwards signed for the upcoming season. The New York Riveters already have 14 skaters and a goaltender signed. This season, NWHL teams will have 15 skaters and 2 goalies on their regular rosters as well as 1 goalie and 5 skaters on their practice team.
For reference, last season each team had 15 skaters (usually 10 Forwards & 5 Defensemen), 3 goaltenders and 4 additional skaters on their practice team. (Since the NWHL has no farm league, they need to have multiple skaters available to draw from when one or more of their starters is unavailable. So these are essentially the 13th forward/7th defenseman equivalent players)
NWHL free agency ends on July 31st.

Elsewhere in hockey, newly signed New York Riveter Amanda Kessel showed off her moment with the Stanley Cup (care of brother Phil…)

Lord Stanley.

But Lord Stanley’s cup isn’t the only one that travels…

The Isobel Cup spent the 4th of July at the beach, sharing soft-serve ice cream with Smelkee (Boston Pride forward Jordan Smelker)

You can follow her adventures on twitter with hashtag #WheresIsobel.

Work is taking a few of us out to lunch! Along with insurance, I have some payroll duties. Since our HR and payroll systems are two completely different systems, payroll errors are prone to exist. We’ve had 100% accuracy for months and we’re being rewarded.

Now, how about we just switch to Kronos and call it a day.

Morning All! I need some hockey news. Mr Sweeney, bring me some D (to the tune of Mr Sandman, of course!)

Watching dogs all day, meh.

I made the best omelet in recorded human history this morning! (tomato and cheese with fresh from the garden garlic!)

Coffee. Funny, now that I’m drinking again, I haven’t had a drink since my first one. WTF? Note to self – drink more!

Lots of seltzer and lemon juice on tap.

I used a mexican blend, all shredded up. No exotic cheeses in the house. I’d love to put chorizo in, but Jo can’t eat any hot stuff at all. Like none. She has physical reactions that are not pleasant.

I was telling Em that it needed some greens on it like parsley or something, but other than that it was great.

Was up at my folks for dinner last night. My dad got Trader Joe’s cilantro salad dressing. I highly recommend it. Perfect for a steak salad.

Actually Pooh Jersey isn’t the best one. That is reserved for the Flying Duck Mighty Ducks jersey. #GOAT

SI went so far as to rank the Poo(h) Jersey as the worst NHL jersey of all time. Even the Gorton’s Fisherman (#6), the Mooterus (#7), the Burger King (#11) fared better. Granted they also ranked the Habs’ centennial unis (#3) as better than the Pooh – and those monstrosities were so horrendous they were only worn once – and the Buffaslug didn’t even make the list, but the fact that the Pooh was even in the discussion is telling.

They had the Vancouver V jersey on that list. Shame on them!

Working on the Vancouver V doodles nearly gave me a seizure. I had to take a few breaks while working on them.

It just embodies the NHL of the 90s so perfectly. I know it’s a bad jersey. But it’s so bad I love it.

It was a horrible jersey for a horrible decade.

Buongiorno B2B!

  • Uh I guess I’ll go bullet points today
  • It’s hump day so it’s almost time for the weekend! woo!
  • Looks like the Pride drafted exclusively out of Canada taking a goalie with their first rounder.
  • Amanda Kessel = best Kessel despite playing for a New York team.
  • On the home front, GV softball looks to break out of the 4 game losing streak and bring our record to 3-7. We’ve been bad all season and moral is starting to take a hit. I mean it’s a just for fun league, but no one likes to lose and when game’s aren’t close (we lost 26-4 Sunday) it stops being fun after a while.
  • Party is in a month folks! Mark your calendars (except those who have already made other plans cause We totally don't want you there anyway nuh-uh
  • Coffee and water on tap today as always
