Morning Free Association, August 31

The Bruins have made a big splash signing a major free agent!

Just kidding! They did announce some recent deals with recent Ranger forward Dominic Moore, defenseman Alex Grant, formerly of the Coyotes organization, forward Brian Ferlin, and defenseman Chris Casto.

Honestly, I don’t have much opinion on these signings at all other than I’m glad to see Ferlin back and hope that he has a good year with no injuries.

I wish for a merciful end to this lackluster offseason.

Good morning, friends!

I’ll be with y’all in spirit today; I’m discussing New England in Murica class this afternoon. Lots of Puritan fun. Including the story of Thomas Granger, one of the first people hanged at the Plymouth colony. His crime? Fucking a mare, a cow, two goats, a bunch of sheep, two calves, and a turkey.” True story.

Isn’t history fun?

Where’s Thomas? – He’s stuffing the turkey!

Yay, I got up early so I could get some stuff done. But I wasn’t able to go to the bank because it wasn’t open yet, then I went to pay a bill at an appliance shop but they weren’t open yet. I missed my coffee shop because I tried to go to the bank, so I tried to get coffee @ Cumby’s, and they were out, now I’m at work and the server is down. My boss is giving me crap because he wants to close out the 401k from the old company, but I can’t get to the new company’s 401k and I can’t talk to anyone because….

they aren’t at work yet.

I mean it’s not like I drove in at 5AM. Sheesh.

How can you be out of coffee this early in the morning?! They should be jailed for that.

Heya! I’m back in Germany! I’ll be back in Boston in the third week of October.

The Dominic Moore signing is not at all significant. He’s injury replacement fodder, a la Tablet.

An upgrade over Tablet. I think of him as a poor man’s Cageface.

How much are Ottawa paying Cageface? Maybe we should have just re-signed him

Satan 81's Sister

Same as Moore. 1 year. $900,000.

This is my thought about Moore over Kelly. Kelly made a lot of money here, and he knew he wasn’t going to get the same kind of deal. Why not make your market value where you call home? In some ways, Bruins did him a favor. Kelly was not going to play much if he stayed with the Bruins.

Likewise, Moore’s home is in Cambridge. He has no history with the team so if he does not play often, that’s fine. Boston does not have a past practice of playing him often because he is new.

Good point, well made

Yeah, but resigning Cageface adds the risk of him breaking his leg again

So a thought I just had after reading something on twitter. Would a Chara – Killer pairing be such a bad thing, if it’s our 2nd pairing? Put Krug & Chiller on the top pairing?

Where would that put liles? I think id rather see Chara – Chiller, Krug – Liles, Killer – Morrow with quaid at your 7th.

Chara – Chiller, Krug – Liles, Killer – Morrow with quaid at your 7th.

Agreed. Chara needs some young, FAST legs with him, as does Liles, frankly.
Krug and Chiller may be your top pair down the road, but not this year.

Yep, im hoping next year we have youth that is NHL ready to allow less TOI for Chara to still allow him to be effective by playoffs. But right now we need to keep the slower legs with someone that can get back if theres trouble.

Morning All!
Partner forgot his gear last night so I did my game solo. Extra $!!! They only pay time and a half, though it’s more than twice as much work.
Jo is making blueberry pancakes this morning!
Lots to do to get this place ready for the holiday weekend.
I’d really like to be back on the river!
Coffee and even more coffee!

I want some blueberry pancakes. Do you have some blueberry bushes at your house or do you go out to pick them?

I have one blueberry bush that really pumps out the fruit! I planted it about 12 years ago and the last few years it has been awesome! I was clearing out some poison ivy that grew under it on Monday and I found a scion. It’s about the size my champion bush was when i bought it. Trying to figure out where to plant it…. ie, where will I be in ten years? I better put it in the fooking cemetary!
