Morning Free Association: It’s Over

“Just get to the fucking handshake line,” I said as NBC insisted on showing Sidney Crosby’s ugly mug on the screen. I hate him, I will continue to hate him and I never want to see him win anything again.

Fuck the Penguins and fuck that shitbag Sidney Crosby. I’m out.

Morning.

Fucking pens. They deserve nothing. Most boring possible end to an interesting playoff bracket (other than Chicago winning).

Alright, back to my cave.

Hey Pals!,
Great weekend on the river! Finally paddling without winter gear, although the water was friggin’ cold! Spent a lot of time upside down, cooling off.
Pens win. Meh. Did not watch.
Left my phone up north and I’m okay with that. I love being unplugged all weekend. Screw world news and all the other nonsense. Leave me hockey and B2B and I’m good.

My winter session of hockey ended yesterday. We finished in third place. For this league, (I alternate between two) I set personal bests. It was also the most fun I had playing hockey. Summer session begins Saturday!

I also finally earned my jersey. Most of the guys of fire fighters, and they have taken me in as one of them!

So Crosby becomes only the third player to win back to back Connor Smyths. Kinda helps him that the league seems to grab every opportunity to give him a trophy.

Maybe I’m being harsh, I didn’t see enough of the playoffs to judge, but he was very generous odds to win CS at the start of the final and there are plenty of people who feel Kessel was robbed of it last year. And it’s easy to make a case for Marchand deserving the World Cup MVP. Ah well.

On to the off-season moves. I’m looking forward to see what kind of a deal Bs give Pasta…

I really thought Kessel deserved it last year. And, despite my pot stirring last week – FUCK CROSBY!!!!!

Disappointed. Loved the Preds story.
And the disallowed goal was brutal. Considering where the ref was positioned at the time, he sort of had to make that call, but damn.

Still, I don’t see how the Preds would have made it through a game 7.

Bonjour all. Leaving Montreal in a few hours. Had a blast this weekend hanging out with CB and Em. Got a wicked sunburn. Hotel upgraded me to a suite that’s bigger than my apartment. I don’t want to leave it. Maybe border patrol will have a birthday cake for me.

Good morning, pals.

Long time no see. Been spending my work time all crazy since the warehouse move that isn’t totally completed yet, and now I have to hire two people. And June is our second biggest month, so there’s that.

At least that’s over. I don’t think Crosby is that much dirtier than anyone else, it’s just that he goes unpunished because the league sees his not playing as lost revenue.

I’m less upset that the Predators lost than I am that the Penguins won. I loathe that organization from the top to the bottom. Except Hainsey and somehow, Phil Kessel. There’s something endearing about his level of awkwardness, I don’t know. Anyway, I watched very, very little of it, despite my love of playoff hockey.

With that, I’m really glad we can move on to talking about the draft. If I can get my life together a slight bit, maybe I’ll do some research and write a few things that will not excite you that much. I’m excited at the idea of Brodin, but I’m also psyched about camp and about the rookie class that will be graduating from Providence and moving up to the NHL roster. DeBrusk and Heinen will definitely be making splashes and I think we see at least one of them make it stick for sure. Then there’s Senyshyn, who I absolutely love to watch. So fast. Here I am getting all goosebumpy. Yay, hockey!

I’m also happy for Hainsey (Connecticut guy).
