Morning Free Association, October 11 – Busted!

Yesterday was a busy day in Bruins News

The top story? Radko Gudas, the Butcher of Broad Street, (wait, no one calls him that? Eh.. I’m going with it anyway…)
Then, the butcher loses control
Gudas has been suspended by DOPS for his hit on Austin Czarnik.


One has to interpret this as a cumulative suspension (even though the CBA is not very amenable to that). Gudas just got off with a slap on the wrist for pulling a remarkably similar hit on the Rangers’ rookie, Jimmy Vesey. Czarnik is out with a concussion.

Bad news: BOOOOOOOO!!!! Bad guy: BOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Go directly to suspension. Do not pass “Go!”. Do not collect $245,121.96
(Holy crap, that’s actually a large amount of money!)

Less badness-related news:

It was cutdown day in Bruins land (NHL Teams must reduce rosters to 23 active players by Tuesday – you know — today).


Bruins GM Don Sweeney can be seen in the picture above (probably saying “Harrumph! Harrummmph!”)
The Bruins sent Jake DeBrusk, Sean Kuraly and Malcolm Subban directly to Providence, and put Seth Griffith, Tyler Randell and Tim Schaller on waivers to allow them to be sent to the P-Bruins as well.

GermanTeam Europe defenseman Christian Erhoff was given an offer after his PTO, but he declined it, since he felt he would not be in the top-6. He has been released by the Bruins.

This leaves the Bruins with the following roster:

Goaltenders:
Tuukka Rask & Anton Khudobin

Forwards:
Brad MarchandPatrice BergeronDavid Pastrnak
Ryan SpoonerDavid KrejciDavid Backes
Matt Beleskey-Austin Czarnik*-Jimmy Hayes
Dominic MooreRiley NashDanton Heinen
Noel Acciari
Also mysteriously unaccounted for is winger Brian Ferlin, who is not listed on the roster, but has also not been publicly sent to Providence.

Defensemen:
Zdeno CharaBrandon Carlo
Torey KrugRob O’Gara
John-Michael LilesColin Miller
Kevan Miller*
Joe MorrowAdam McQuaid*

Injured Bruins Adam McQuaid & Austin Czarnik are “day to day”. No update yet on Kevan Miller. With these three players not actually on the “active” roster, the Bruins can temporarily remain up to 3 players above the 23 man limit.


Update on Kevan Miller:


As for Quaider, Sweeney referred to his injury as “short term” and he is expected to return sometime next week.

Did you all see this yesterday? I said on Twitter I never really thought much of him as a hockey player but fully respect what he’s doing now behind the scenes https://twitter.com/PlayersTribune/status/785623456859557888

Why did the Islanders waive PAP? I don’t understand it.

Make roster spots for a pair of 19 year olds in Barzal and Beauvillier. Bold strategy Cotton, lets see if it works

I want Barzal to be a bust so bad, which is so unfair to him.

Barzal and Connor both starting the season on their respective teams is going to make Bruins twitter level up in its insufferability

I have to assume its possible. I mean, I don’t follow pro-Trump circles, but I assume they are worse than Bruins Twitter. Ergo, Bruins twitter can get worse

Oh i see, its an understandable mistake since we don’t write articles and tweets about gender roles unlike an other site it may not be as obvious about how progressive we are.

I want to think of them as fauxgressive since they really didn’t seem to mind throwing any of their members to the wolves, regardless of gender, with that stuff they were writing. Maybe we’ve gotten somewhere since we’re equally treated badly. Progress!

With that, I should refrain from further comment.

Wow…. Tampa just locked up Kucherov for 3 years at 4.76 per. That’s an absolute steal.

Tampa gets Kucherov for only 800K more than Boston gets Beleskey and 1.3M less than Backes. Yes, I understand he was RFA so major difference. Regardless, this depresses me…

DrHandgrenaid

DrHandgrenaid

Its not just RFA vs UFA- its RFA without arbitration rights vs open market UFA. An even bigger gulf. I would hold off on the depression here

Miss Muse

That’s great! I saw an account say he signed for 6 years at $12M and I almost died before I realized that was a joke account.

in practice today Nash was third line C in between Beleskey and Hayes and Heinen-Moore-Acciari was the 4th line.

DrHandgrenaid
Editor
DrHandgrenaid

hrmm. Not feeling Heinen on the 4th instead of Hayes. But I get why Nash is running 3C- they aren’t expecting Czarnik to be out very long. Otherwise it would make much more sense to move Spoons off the wing

The Bruins don’t play a team which made it to the 2016 playoffs until Thursday October 25. Yes, you want to win as many as you can, but the Bruins have some time to let players return. That’s good.

Don Sweeney says Adam McQuaid injury is more short-term, Kevan Miller could be longer.

Can this be the other way around?

So Pete Blackburn is doing the hard journalism and has discovered that Rob O’Gara was in one of Yale’s secret societies.

Rob O’Gara may be in the lineup for the Bruins on opening night…I think it’s important to discuss that he was in a secret society at Yale pic.twitter.com/UAegWIcedw

I can only assume he will eventually be shooting Craig T. Nelson
