Morning Free Association, October 12

The Bruins placed both Adam McQuaid and Kevan Miller on IR yesterday. While both players will miss the first three games of the season, it seems that the injury to Miller may keep him out for an extended period of time. While this is bad news for the injured defensemen, it’s good news for the first-year players Rob O’Gara and Brandon Carlo, who will both be on roster for the first three games.

If you’re not into the article, Boston Globe Bruins beat guy, Fluto Shinzawa,  notes this for you quickly:

Fluto also had a little fun with a list of superlatives for this NHL season. My favourite was the category of “Best Danes”, none of which were Dane Cook.

Also, as noted yesterday in the MFA comments as it happened, Seth Griffith was claimed off waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs. Now-former teammate Malcolm Subban tweeted this reaction:


We’re one day away from the start of the Bruins season. Tomorrow night, we will have a game thread starting around 6pm. This is happening.

George Michael

Yes, George Michael, it is.

Because, Annie, it’s what we do!

So, dust off your gifs and your commenting skills, talk about what you’re eating and drinking!

So is it just me or is the IR roster almost as big as the normal roster?

Krug – surgery recovery
DK – surgery recovery
Quaid – being McQuaid
Miller – being Miller
Bergy – someone used his lower body too much
Czarnik – Brain hurts

missing anyone?

I know, we basically had the team rebuilt in the offseason, physically and roster-wise.

I asked over on Reddit hockey for people to tell me why their team will win the Stanley Cup this year, and I’m happy I’m getting quite a few responses. Of course, all we have to do is make the playoffs, where anything then can happen. wink

Bergeron suffered a lower-body injury and is currently being evaluated on a day-to-day basis. He will not travel with the team to Columbus.

What’s great about Tim Schaller? Seriously asking, cause I don’t know much about him.

He’s from New Hampshire, and I played rec hockey with a guy who played high school hockey with him.
