Morning Free Association: Hockey Is Coming

Today I want to focus on other things. Yesterday I said all I need to say about the large , dark cloud looming over Bruins’ fans’ picnic. We’re just going to say this and move on:

For hockey is on the horizon.

Captains’ practices started late last week, a week ahead of rookie camp and two in front of Bruins training camp.

On the ice yesterday were 31 Bruins, which is a fabulous amount of players this far ahead.

Is the team invigorated by the coaching change of last season with players, young and old, hitting the ice early to work together to build chemistry? Maybe. This group is skewing very young, so it’s a good bet that those vying roster spots work on skills with their fellow players (and possibly linemates).

Yesterday was the first day that Zdeno Chara, David Backes, Brad Marchand, and Davd Krejci hit the ice. I’m pretty sure all of these guys will make the team.

Hockey is coming. Pre-season games start in 12 days.
