Morning Free Association: May 8

Here are some hockey things from the end of last week.

  • Fluto teased that Anders Bjork may not be trying to pull a Vesey next year.

    Matt Kalman also wrote about the Bruins handling of Pastrnak and Bjork.

  • It looks like Ryan Spooner may be on teh trading block and as many as three teams may have an interest in him.

  • Jake DeBrusk is starting to heat up in the Providence Bruins playoffs and he credits spending some time with his father, a former NHLer, with helping his game.
  • Okay, this isn’t Bruins stuff at all however it is funny.

    CHIPS AHOY!

I’d love to, but it’s not in the cards.

Preds winning it all would mean I need to go to Montreal and soak in the atmosphere.

I suspect that atmosphere would be clogged with the smoke from everything being on fire

Hey Pals!,
Great time on the very beefy West River Saturday. Extra rain made extra big water. Big water like my buddy disappearing and reappearing as we hit the crests and valleys of waves. Spring paddling at the West means carrying your boat across the dam, then down it. It’s a workout!
Jo and I headed to the new house Sunday and kicked some ass! We turned the water on – only to find out you can shower anywhere in the house except the bathrooms! I’ll be plumbin’.
Yay Preds! Yay Tootsies! Way to rip the Rags fan’s hearts out!!!!
Ducks, three, count ’em, three goals with Gibson pulled! Did they play with the goalie pulled all game last night? And Movie, dusting off the golf clubs soon, no?

Also got to hang out with paddling legend, 79 year old Jim Michaud, just back from his 56th trip through the Grand Canyon. Some friends paddled a steep creek with him Saturday morning. Michaud flipped in a Class IV , but rolled his open canoe up! Dude is the shit! He has waterfalls named after him!!

Morning, pals!

Rough couple weeks on my end work-wise, so I’m mostly here to just do a drive-by.
Polish Fest was the most Polish of fests. Everything went wrong and it was hilarious.
I’m okay with parting ways with Mister Spooner. 100%.
Also okay with moving Hayes or Beleskey or both.
Happy Monday. Maybe?

Oh my god I am tired. Wedding stuff and hockey…

Let me tell you about this wedding I went to! It rained all weekend. Two of the groomsmen were missing until 2 hours before the wedding. The rings were misplaced. The minister announced them man and wife before the rings were exchanged or the first kiss.

Worst of all, the wine was horrible. Luckily I brought Gentleman Jack and some local gin to make it better.

The missing groomsmen & ring fiasco is par for the course at most weddings, but bad wine? You gotta take care of that shit!

Good morning folks

  • Man, Guy is a really popular name on the Knights huh?
  • With the way the media is talking about Bjork, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him go back to ND for his senior year. His bother is committed now to ND as well, plus that team is a serious title contender. Gotta think Sweeney might be wise to say “if you want to go back for your senior year, go, we’ve got a contract for you for whenever you want to sign it” in good faith.
  • Bye Spooner, you were fun when your offensive game was clicking, but you scare me to death elsewhere.
  • Only 8 days before I can get new shoes from the shoe truck! Currently my left shoe is being held together with masking tape. That’s osha compliant right?
  • Got some more work done on the new patio I’m building. The fire pit is moved, two of the bases are installed, just need 2 more from work (be about 2 weeks) & more gravel & it’ll be done before I leave for Montreal
  • really thought I had more, but nope. Wish it was 3:30

    Is the shoe truck like the book mobile?

    It’s more like a food truck, but instead they sell shoes that the company has already paid for. I just get to select my favorite ones

    Jimmy Vesey basically ruined it for everyone.
    Now every time a player wants to get his degree at 21 all the media & GMs think “Is he pulling a Vesey?”

    That is not OSHA compliant.

    one of Guy Boucher’s many evil plots.

    DrHandgrenaid

    His crusade to make hockey unfun continues apace

    DrHandgrenaid

    So… he and Jagr are both Time Lords, and Boucher is The Master to Jagr’s (Dick) Doctor?

    I see him more of an James Bond villain. Kind f because he reminds me of Mads Mikkelsen.

    it as quite possible. As a TTDW, could it be possible for him to travel not only between time, but dimensions?

    carvinbass18

    yes! exactly! I only see him as Le Chiffre

    Fortunately the Dick Doctor has no shortage of companions from all across (hockey) time and space

    I assumed it was “Guy Jr-Guy Jr-Guy Jr”

    Pretty much every man woman & child in Quebec wanted to have sex with him at some point.

    Not sure where the Anders Bjork talk is coming from, all i heard was he wanted to finish off his years at UND. You cant blame a kid for wanting to enjoy the best years of college he can have…and hell if that means getting a degree too good on him.
