Morning Free Association, October 5

The Bruins fell to the PK-Subban-less Canadiens 4-3 last night, but this is a good time for a loss since it doesn’t really count.

I mean, we care but we don’t really care if they win or lose in the preseason since Claude & Crew™ are trying to figure out how all the pieces they have fit together. Of course, like build-it-yourself furniture, there will be pieces leftover. Unlike said furniture, those extra pieces will likely end up in Providence.

For those of you who missed it, because it was only broadcast on RDS en français and you couldn’t/ didn’t find a legal stream, here are some highlights:

First Period:

Second Period:

Jeff Petry and Artturi Lehkonen scored for the Habs.

Third Period:

Unfortunately, Alex Galyenchuk tied the game and Daniel Carr scored to win the game.

Other Notes:

Claude seems to like this kid Austin Czarnik.

Kevan Miller took a puck to his knee and left the game.

Jimmy Hayes made a sweet hit on a Hab.

Remember to hit your Habs and often. Also, score all the goals on them forever, thanks.

The Bruins didn’t win, but it’s always a glorious day to hate the Habs.

Does US Customs have an import limitation on paprika? Asking for a friend.

That must be some mighty fine Paprika if you feel like you gotta ask that question

Morning all! Payday today and one of the faculty brought us a lunch I think he made, a tagine! I think I need more coffee.

My friend Melanie makes an awesome chicken/olive/lemon tagine.

Miss Muse

Yeah, I don’t know what’s in this one, but it’s free food. smile (Just hoping it’s not lamb, but anything else would be OK.)

I had to look that up.

Hello

Quite a frustrating game last night but a meaningless loss at least and the Bs played well enough to win.

A shame about Chara’s howler as he had not been bad up to then. Neither defence covered themselves in glory.

Spooner and Czarnick both impressed me – though I was having some trouble telling 61 from 51 on the TV.

Highlight of the night was getting a reply from Sarah Davis on Twitter (when I asked for any updates on K Miller).

Just realised why my Pepsi tastes funny – there’s no Jack Daniel’s in it wink

I accidentally picked up Jo’s coffee recently. I took a drink and reacted like it was poison. I spit it out into the sink. No bourbon in it.

Good morning, friends.

Our new laundry machines got installed last night. We are very happy that we don’t have to go to the apartment laundromat anymore. Whee!

More grading, cleaning, organizing, syllabus writing, job applying, and whatever else I can fit into today.

There is an amazing downtown loft in Lansing we spotted on Craigslist, but it doesn’t have laundry hook ups. It might be a deal breaker.

Might be worth having the hook ups installed.

It seems odd they didn’t do that. It was just gutted and redone.

There’s a kids music class down the hall for me. I now have “I’ve Been Working On The Railroad” stuck in my head.

Miss Muse

Oh my god I’m having flashbacks for when I worked at Gymboree Play and Music.

Satan 81's Sister

Oh god, you poor thing. Why did you do that to yourself?

Miss Muse

This was right after I’d come back from teaching kindy kids in HK and I just needed the money! The parents were there but, still…

Have you been working on the railroad, though?

Hi.

I’m so underwater at work right now. Probably will be (even more) MIA for a while.

Bye.

Good morning all. This might be my only shot to chat with you today as my supervisor has been ordered (not exaggerating) to stay on the floor to make sure people stay focused. He’s already chewed a few people out for “too many people on printers” today. Things aren’t looking up for this quarter and starting next week until unknown we are on mandatory 50. Guess who’s looking harder for a new job?

Miss Muse

Hope you’ll find something soon!

Shame you’re too far from Salem. We need engineering techs like crazy here and I honestly believe you’d be qualifies based on what you do there.

Mandatory 50 as in 50 hour work weeks? Are you at least paid for 50 hours or only 40?

carvinbass18
Editor

paid for 50 but yes, 50 hour work week

The BOB

At least you get paid for it, not that mandated OT is ever fun.

My previous employer implemented 3-shift, 6-day workweeks while trying to win a contract. People on that program effectively worked 60 hour weeks while being paid for 40 and weren’t able to use vacation time. They got bonuses for a small fraction of what they’d have earned through OT and almost weren’t allowed to carry over their unused vacation time.

Even better, the idiot management utilized the adjusted time charges (40 hours instead of ~60) as valid metrics for future bidding, ignoring the 50% offset. Needless to say, morale has plummeted there.

New DOL rules should help prevent people from being screwed.

The BOB
Member
The BOB

Do they effect salaried people though? Most of the rules that would cover such a scenario only apply to hourly staff (non-exempt)

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin
Member

The threshold to be a non-exempt is now much, much stricter. Before the DOL laws, we had 200 salaried employees. We now have 48.

Hey kids!

So, who makes the team?

Czarnik and Heinen are good bets IMO.

phonymahoney
Editor

And what about Ehrhoff? He can play both sides, but our biggest issue is a #3 D, I’d say.

carvinbass18
Editor

Does Ehrhoff bump Morrow out of the 7th D role?

phonymahoney
Editor

I don’t know. I doubt they sign him to be 7th.

The BOB
Member
The BOB

Doubt he’d sign if he thought he’d be a 7th. Be better off going to Europe/KHL if that was the case

phonymahoney
Editor

Yup.

IntentionallyWidenberg

However, signing Erhoff as a 2nd or 3rd pairing guy will bump Morrow off the 7th spot, and bump Chiller out of top 6 contention

MadScientist72
Member
MadScientist72

I’m more concerned that adding Ehrhoff will mean that 3 of our 7 Dmen will be over-30 (Ehrhoff, Chara, Liles) with a 4th joining them in a week (KillerQuaider). While everyone else’s blueline is getting younger (and speedier), ours is getting older.

DrHandgrenaid

McQuaid. Kevlar is only 28

MadScientist72

MadScientist72

My bad. It is indeed Darth Quaider that turns 30 this year. Killer turns next year (November).

IntentionallyWidenberg
Admin

Erhoff still has some legs for this year, and I don’t expect he or Liles to be around next season, so I’m not too horrified. — By that time Chiller, O’Gara, Carlo should be viable options.
No matter what they do, this year’s defense isn’t exactly going to look like 2011’s.

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

More than just those 3. Money says McAvoy is a roster D next year

Satan81
Admin

Does Carlo make the team this year?

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

If Kevlar’s LBI is serious, yes. If not, we wait until McQuaid McQuaids and then hes called up. We’ll see plenty of him, but hes no shoe in, is my guess

phonymahoney
Editor

I hate allllllll of this

Thetallest81

well…if Kevan is injured….

And McQ needs to be pushed out…
