Morning Free Association: This Weekend in the NHL

Embed from Getty Images

It was kind of a weird hockey weekend.

On Friday night, news broke that three teams were perpetrating a trade deal that would send Matt Duchene to Ottawa, Kyle Turris to Nashville and unknown pieces to Colorado. Rumour was that Mattias Ekholm was to be part of the deal but the whole thing fell apart before the night’s end.

Things moved quickly Sunday during game action.

Yeah, Duchene left the ice after a now former teammate left the ice with an injury.

Turris was in the last year of his deal with the Senators and was not expected to re-sign with them.

In the meantime, word is that the Bruins are working on trade deals, or at least putting the feelers out.

Meanwhile in Montreal news: In an effort to get the fans to watch, Jonathan Drouin takes matters into his own hands and starts stripping on the bench.

I would say don’t quit your day job but you’re a Hab, so quit it!

Marchand out tonight. We now have two top six forwards. I guess you could be charitable and count Bjork if you want.

Re: Duchene trade –

IMO the Sens gave up a lot. I’m also shocked Turris is already signed. Colorado got a haul and a half. Really surprised.

Bruins trade supposedly in the works. I really would be interested in trading Beleskey for Shipachyov. Worse comes to worst, he leaves for the KHL and Vegas takes Beleskey off our hands.

Morning, pals!
Having a little Monday trouble on my end.

Question: is plugging coax cable straight from the wall into your TV still a thing? Just looking for a yes or no. I thought that was done away with.

Barely. The cableTV providers scramble all of the HD and any channels that weren’t locally available over the air, so you don’t get much anymore.

OK, that’s what I thought. There was no box in my room and I have yet to lay eyes on my roomies because I have been MIA, so I wanted to make sure before I go ask crazy questions.

Ah, I have my answer: the guy before me didn’t want a cable box. She has been meaning to ask me if I want one.

I thought you need a box now. Did you move to Monroe Bridge?

Hey Pals!
Great weekend!! We missed the game Saturday night to see Loving Vincent. The whole movie is painted – oil paints in Van Gogh’s style. 5 years in the making with over 100 painters!
Yesterday we went north and took one of the last remaining walls out of the house! Next we’re removing all five layers of floor from the kitchen. Five layers, because when part of your floor rots, you just put anther floor on top of it. Right?
