Morning Free Association: Call to the Hall

You’ve probably heard by now so this is your chance to celebrate. Jeremy Jacobs was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame yesterday under the Builders category.

Just Kidding

That’s not why people are excited. Around these parts, we’re pretty stoked that a certain doctor is making a house call. Or should we call it a hall call?

Yes, Mark Recchi was called to the HHOF along with the Finnish Flash, Teemu Selanne, his former teamate Paul Kariya, former Bruins and Stanley Cup Winner (with the Bolts) Dave Andreychuk, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Danielle Goyette, Canadian coach Clare Drake, and of course, Jacobs.

Let’s give him a Recch today!

Celebrate


In Other News:

The Bruins have made qualifying offers to several RFAs: Noel Acciari, Linus Arnesson, Austin Czarnik, Zane McIntyre, David Pastrnak, Tim Schaller, Ryan Spooner, and Malcolm Subban. Linus Arnesson is returning to Sweden next season however GM Don Sweeney had said earlier this month that he would still make a QO for the young defenseman.

Sweeney says the Bruins will extend Arnesson a qualifying offer to retain the rights to the 2013 second-round draft pick who completed the final year of his entry level contract. Though disappointed in the decision, Sweeney referred to Arnesson as still having “a lot of upside” while acknowledging injuries took a toll on the player’s confidence.

Defenseman Joe Morrow and LW Colton Hargrove, a Bruins 7th-round draft pick in 2012, were not qualified.

So how do feel about all these news items?

Glad to see Recchi and Andreychuk (finally!) make it to the HHOF. Selanne as a first-ballot HHOFer is a no-brainer. Interesting call on Kariya, but I don’t have a problem with it – good on him! Jacobs…um…er…

Alas, Morrow, but not surprising. He had enough chances. I have no idea who Colton Hargrove is.

If Arnesson is going back to Sweden after three stints in Providence, that doesn’t bode well.

Jacobs…um…er…

Well, he did do all that work on initiating the lockout, so there’s that…

I forgot to mention Recchi! The guy is the epitome of a true hockey player. Grit, talent, and heart!

Morning, pals-

  • Yay, Rex! The Recching Ball is one of my all-time favorites, and there was that time he replied to me on twitter and I almost died.
  • You’ll go to the Hall, and you’ll like it!

  • Looked at an apartment I was really excited about last night. What a fucking dump. 13’x15′ room in a townhouse at Cleveland Circle. Sounds good, right? WRONG. It’s a basement bedroom with no windows. Yeah, there’s parking and everything else I need, BUT the house was a total and complete fucking pig sty and I am by no means a neat freak. YIKES!
  • So, that prospective roommate will not be enjoying a ceremony like this anytime soon.
  • Pregame Mark Recchi honored and drops ceremonial puck

  • Skating tonight! I heart the skating guy. He’s a maniac and it’s delightful. It seems like what Stripes would be like giving lessons. Less of a hockey pedigree, though, except that he was the worst player on a junior team with Bob Sweeney and Tom Barasso, hahahaha

    the worst player on a junior team with Bob Sweeney and Tom Barasso,

    Short for really awesome skater!
    I’d like to get back into coaching. When I see beginner adult league players who really have the fever, I always find some time to encourage them and give them skating or playing tidbits to help them on their way. I love seeing people improve at something they love!!!

    See? I love hockey people like this. My skating guy does that too, and while I’m sure part of it is to get business, he’s also a good dude.

    I’m moving to Raleigh in a month. Within the city limits there are four rinks. I have to find my crazy skating coach. For the first few months I am there, I don’t plan on playing ice hockey (time and money), but I would love to get better as a skater.

    Hey Pals!
    I’m good with all the news from the Bs. I always hoped Morrow would be more, but I guess he ain’t all that.
    Pretty much done licking my wounds after the ass kicking I received from the river Sunday. We lives and learns, eh?
    Double tonight with a great friend. Should be fun!!!! So many nights I shake my head because I can’t believe I get paid for that shit!
    Coffee!!!!!! Lots of hedge trimming today!!! Last leg of the hedge trimming marathon!!!!
