Morning Free Association: April 28

So Bruce Cassidy is now officially the head coach of the Bruins! Yay! Yeah this news broke a couple of days ago, but I’m still happy about it.

I have a bone to pick with the NHL right now. Why did they schedule both western conference games on one night and both eastern conferences games on the next? You’ve missed a prime opportunity go back to back, but ya blew it. Good work NHL.

What’s on tap for the weekend?

I can forgive you if you don't like Rask. I can't forgive you if you think he's garbage. You're wrong

Hey Pals! Late to the party – took Jo’s mom to the doc.
Faster game 1 last night and game 2 solo – I’m a lil gimpy today, not bad.
Karlsson – I guess two “s”s for superstar.
Went to the bar and ordered an Ovi – White Russian without a cup!! I don’t think it’s happening this year, either.
Much work to do.
Water – it’s hot!!!

Yeah, I think the Caps will flame out, which is fine except I’m tired of the Penguins.

Belated hello!

It’s been a busy one this week with two guys down at work.

The second round has looked pretty entertaining, what I’ve seen of it, which is only the condensed games, but even so.

It’s a bank holiday weekend for us (maybe also for you?) – May Day. If you’ve ever watched The Wicker Man, it’s that one, although we celebrate it in a slightly different way.

I’m quite looking forward to the World Championship. Canada don’t seem to be sending anywhere near the strength of squad they have in recent years, so it could be Russia’s turn, I reckon.

Team GB have a crunch match against Japan tomorrow – if they win they will be promoted to the second tier!

We don’t celebrate May Day in the US, which is a shame. We save up our bank holiday for Memorial Day the last weekend of May. It’s supposed to be a day of remembrance for those who died while serving in the armed services, although we still kind of honour other war veterans who are still alive as well. Mostly, though, Memorial Day kind of kicks off summer in the US.

Here’s the page for the Cassidy interview. I forgot about how he stated he’s a Bruins fan (longtime, apparently) and he hates the Habs.

Probably because all of those games that were played were already scheduled as game 7s in the first round.

Hey guys!

I just listened to Bruce Cassidy on Toucher & Rich. It was a fantastic interview.

  • He said that Ryan Spooner lost time not only because his defensive game needs consistency but because he’s better on the PP and they weren’t getting those opportunities
  • Because of that Acciari and Kuraly were able to step in and show what they have.
  • He’s pretty excited about McAvoy and felt that he handled the limelight well. Hopes that Carlo can build his game but will likely have a sophomore season jinx that most players have. He likes the Chara-Carlo pairing a lot.
  • He sounds very excited about the kids coming up through the system and wants to play them especially JFK, DeBrusk, Senyshyn, and Bjork if they can sign him.
  • He has a multi-year deal, he wouldn’t talk about the years but stated he knows the nature of the league- you win or you’re out.
  • He gave such a great, candid interview that T&R handled beautifully. T&R said they hope that they can build a relationship with him to talk weekly or so.
  • Basically, when it become available, I’ll post it. Everyone should listen to it.
