Morning Free Association: Arbitration Day

Well, today’s the day. Ryan Spooner and the Bruins either come to an agreement or an arbitrator will hear the case, coming to a decision within 48 hours.

Yesterday, Mika Zibanejad signed a 5-year $26.5 million contract with the Rangers prior to his arbitration hearing. Will Spooner also sign one before his hearing?

I had something else I wanted to write for today but upon further reflection and the fact that I can’t always words well at 1am, I decided to save it for tomorrow. It involves a little bit of research, some rumination, and the ability to paste words together to create full sentences with actual thoughts other than, NO BRAIN, I SLEEP NOW.

If I’m reading the chart right, Krug is now the Bruins highest paid d-man? I don’t know why that amuses me so much.

Sadly, today is the last day that the Vermont Liberty Tea Company will be open. Given that the loose leaf tea at work is poor (at least they tried), I just spent $70 on over a pound of tea.

I’ve decided that it’s better to walk from North Station to South Boston during my commute than take the T.

We have the dreaded open floor plan at work and I desperately need noise-cancelling headphones or else my ADHD brain will have a meltdown.

Signs of hockey withdrawal during the offseason: searching for “Dmitri Kvartalnov” on eBay.

Trade Spooner.

I SLEEP NOW.

Good morning.

What a relief the Spooner business is at least beginning to end, hopefully with a not-too-painful conclusion.

Offseason is fun until the novelty wears off. Now it’s just a drag. Oh well, in a mere two months we will be well into preseason!

Spent some of last night trying out the NHL18beta – the sneak preview of the new videogame. They’ve made giant strides in realism for this season, but having said that the first goal I scored was with Adam McQuaid …

Just listened to BoT. Sounds like it’s cheaper to go see the Hurricanes play than it is for me to go watch my local team – who play in the third-tier of the English league. Craziness!

thank god for F1 & baseball!

Must be some sort of glitch for McQuaid to be your first goal. They should work on that

I am neither an F1 or baseball fan. For me, the only saving grace is that today is the opening of Patriots training camp – but even that is only fun for about 15min.

I think I could get into baseball if I watched more of it, but a lot of games start at midnight and I need a more high-intensity sport to keep me up at that time!

I’ve actually been quite spoiled for sport recently – love the Tour de France, Wimbledon and big golf tournaments. After the Hungarian GP, though, there’s a bit of a lull…

stupid summer break….

Yeah, that really doesn’t work for me.

Morning everyone.

Good god this month needs to be over. After finding out I need a new roof, my pool has had 2 broken pieces needing replacement, I need to fix the rear door entry way due to more water damage, I now have a flat tire that I need to replace. So much for paying down some of my vacation.

Good luck to Spooner today, hoping though he doesn’t get much, Bruins need that cap money

Fuck Spooner.

Ugh, that sucks. Was talking to a friend the other day about how adulthood is nothing but trap doors. As soon as you crawl out of one, another one gets you.

Yup, adulting is massively overrated. I don’t suspect old manning is any better, judging from the way they complain all the time!

I feel like when you turn to “old manning” you need to develop a smoking or hard drinking habit though, and I’m good.

When you turn to “old manning”, your team is desperate for a quarterback.
