Morning Free Association: Moving On

Embed from Getty Images

There will be a couple of changes, one more stunning than the other, in the Bruins broadcasts this upcoming season.

Let’s start with the NESN broadcast. It’s okay, Jack and Brick are staying but they’ll be working with someone new as a rinkside reporter. Sarah Davis has worked the rink for the past two seasons after the failed Guerin Austin experiment (she was awful) which was after Jamie Erdahl jumped ship for greener pastures of NFL sideline coverage on CBS. Anyway, Sarah was a fine replacement for Guerin. Why is Davis leaving? Well, it’s simple, really:

Her replacement comes from the world of MLS and the Flyers. Alex Kraemer was also once a model. I don’t have high hopes. They should bring back Naoko because everyone loved Naoko.

Next, is the far sadder change. Bruins Radio Network play-by-play guy Dave Goucher is moving on to the land of casinos and showgirls. He’s upgrading to a television play-by-play gig. Fun fact: his colour announcer will be one-time Bruin Shane Hnidy. Gouch was on NHL Network last night talking about how he had a similar opportunity drop in his lap and how he didn’t take it. He likes this opportunity because he can start on the ground floor with the team.

He was great at describing the action on a typically fast-moving sport, giving analysis and answering B’s fans questions on the AT&T Hockey Show on Saturday mornings, and was a great sport about lending his announcing skills for Toucher and Rich.

We’ll miss you, Dave. I hope the Knights organization treats you well. Just remember, they probably don’t have Duck Boats out there.

Probably true. They don’t really have much need for boats of any kind there, what with it being a desert and all.

Morning, pals!

  • Really bummed about Goucher, but I’m happy he got a sweet TV gig and I’m glad it’s with a team I really can’t hate. Officially am now considering their twitter account to be a frenemy, though.
  • Skated last night. I love my skating guy, he’s a goober. We were working on stopping on my left because I have the right side down pat but it seems my body consists of two halves that don’t work together whenever I do anything else, so in trying to conquer other hurdles, we’re dragging my left side to the party it definitely does not wish to attend by forcing me to stop left, thus acknowledging that I do possess a left leg. His commentary on each attempt was cracking me up, it went anywhere from “what kind of bullshit is that?” to “Ah! There it is! HAHAHAHAH!” to “….I can’t even. What the? I…. ugh”. Hysterical. So, it’s been a good time. Now, do I play in September (clearly not in the shape for that), or in January?

  • I’m not worried about a certain right wing being signed to a long term deal. It’s going to happen,
    and it’s going to happen with the Bruins, and we will all rejoice.
  • What about Denver captain and left shot defenseman Will Butcher? He’s going to free agency, and we could use a LD. Maybe a certain Danton Heinen could work in our favor?
  • I couldn’t even remember Sarah Davis’ name and when I saw Guerin Austin above, I didn’t realize she had been replaced, hahahahaha…. and who names their kid Guerin?

    Mornin’

    Whenever I go skiing after a long time away I can always turn left fine, but right is another matter!

    You hear of people lost in the desert walking in circles when they think they’re going in a straight line. Crazy how one leg can be stronger than the other – surely we use both equally?

    I’m imagining you making a smoothie and no matter what I do, the result is you and your kitchen completely covered in yogurt, raspberries, and kale confetti.

    I have kale about once a year and realize, up I’m good for another year without kale.
