Morning Free Association: January 16

Another day, another defenseman down. This time it’s Kevan Miller from a bad hit from Jakub Voracek, who received a 5 Minute Major for Boarding and no further discipline.

This means that it’s time for Joe Morrow to step in and play. Morrow has been enjoying nacho duty for every game in the past month, but he promises that he’ll be ready to play.

“I try and stay in the best shape I can, practice every day. The hockey aspect of things isn’t too far away from me. I haven’t played in a game for a long time, so I feel like those mistakes will kind of be inevitable. I’m just going to focus on if I make a mistake, I’m going to play hard and keep it simple.”

Mistakes will be made. Let’s hope that they won’t be that bad.

As for Killer, it’s hard to tell how long he’ll be out.

Anyone who has had a concussion will tell you that it ain’t no picnic. (In fact, I think I might write up a piece on my own personal experience with one. It wasn’t from hockey, but, given the subject matter and just how many concussions have occurred on this team this season alone, it might make for interesting conversation.) Let’s hope that Kevan can take all the time he needs to get well because there’s no sense playing through that injury.

But it’s not all gloom and doom:

Colin Miller is skating separately from the practice group. While he’s not ready to come back, he’s getting closer.

Brad Marchand had an amazing 5-point-game against the Flyers on Saturday, demonstrating this entire week that he deserves the All Star Recognition.

The Bruins held their Casino Night, a fundraiser to benefit the Boston Bruins Foundation. There are plenty of pictures from the night, but I liked this one the best:


Last thing: the game today is a matinee. Knowing that many people will likely be at work and not watching the game, should I even make up a game thread?

Should there be a game thread today?

Nobody answered the question so:

I can’t decide whether to skate at lunch. If I don’t, then I go tomorrow night. If I do, then I go tomorrow night.

That photo makes it look like he Tae Kwon Do’d him in the face.

I would be okay with a Shaw being Tae Kwon Do’d in the face. Wouldn’t you?

Shaw is where Looch was before the Bs sent him to LA. Needs to learn when to be nasty and when to be nice!

I’ve got my phone and a bluetooth speaker so I can happily annoy everyone else.

My friends want to paddle again today!
I think I need to be responsible and fuck off at home (i want to watch the Bs!), but if there is water I should take advantage of it. Checking the gauges!!

This week is already shaking up to be a rough one. It’s not even noon.

To the F1 fans here: Pascal Wehrlein signs with Sauber, which all but confirms Valteri Bottas from Williams to Mercedes. I give the over on a week before it’s announced officially.

F1 converts texts to Pascal. You’ll see the signs if you’re sober. Consuming Vodka in bottles will merit over a week off

Makes perfect sense to me.

Personally i am a big fan of F9…though F11 can be useful.

Williams confirmed Massa so Merc don’t need to say anything now wink

I’m really annoyed at both teams for this move. Once Paddy Lowe left for Williams I knew it would happen. If you’re Wehrlein how mad are you?
