Morning Free Association, August 30 – Smells like team hockey

The Bruins Captain’s Practice sessions have begun.
Does this mean… Faux hockey is nigh?

Bruins who stumbled out of hibernation and made an appearance were Torey Krug, Noel Acciari, John-Michael Liles, Adam McQuaid, Frank Vatrano, and David Krejci.

In fact, I just want to post this Tweet to see these words in writing:


Oooooooo yeaaaahhhhh, that’s the stuff…

So we’ve started the Captain’s practices, but without any captains? No Zdeno Chara? No Saint Patrice of Bergeron? We’ve only got 6 guys here so far, led by part-time Assistant Captain David Krejci. We love ya, Matrix, but isn’t this supposed to be Z’s gig? Of course, this begs the question – with Kells gone, does Krejci get the ‘A’ full time? Or just a revolving door? For that matter, who replaces Kelly as ‘The Most Canadian Man in the World’? I hope that there are a few more guys who are going to participate in the upcoming sessions.

While in town, Vatrano, Hayes, McQuaid & Krejci were spotted helping out the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund telethon (Donation line: 1-877-738-1234)

Yeah, it’s only a baby step, but it’s a hell of a lot more hockey than the ‘My tractor is bigger than yours‘ stuff we’ve been getting lately.
