Morning Free Association: News from Monday

Embed from Getty Images

Mixed news came out of the Bruins camp yesterday with all sorts of players not skating or practicing, possibly not traveling on this, and someone drawing back in ever so slowly.

Let’s start with the good news: David Krejci traveled with the team to California and hopes to be able to play on Wednesday night if he feels good on the ice for practice. Head coach Bruce Cassidy now calls his time frame as day-to-day as opposed to week-to-week.

Wingers Brad Marchand and Anders Bjork were “knicked up” after the last Toronto game and did not travel with the team yesterday. Hey Hockey Gods, why is it always one step forward and two steps back?

One step forward

Is it really too much to ask for both a return of David Krejci and have people remain healthy?

too much to ask

As a result, Peter Cehlarik and Kenny Agostino have been recalled from the Providence Bruins on an emergency basis. This is Cehlarik’s first call-up of the season.

Sadly, a couple of Bruins are mourning the death of a good friend and fellow collegiate hockey player, Drew Brown. Noel Acciari and Tim Schaller played with Brown at Providence College with Acciari winning a national championship with him in 2014, even though Brown was unable to play due to his illness. Noel Acciari played on Saturday after learning of his good friend’s death and traveled to Michigan to attend the funeral. Cassidy also spoke about that on Monday:

“Our condolences go out to the Brown family and to Noel,” Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy said following Monday’s practice at Warrior Ice Arena. “I can’t speak for him. At a young age like that, I can’t imagine. For him to try to play the other night, I give him credit. But at the end of the day everyone grieves differently and we’ll give him as much time as he needs.”

Acciari is expected to join the team on Wednesday in Anaheim.

I hadn’t heard the Habs picked him up! That’s priceless (like the Habs) (yes, I did steal that joke.)
Although we can’t laugh too hard – they are above the Bs in the standings, somehow sad

Morning all. Weird dreams last night where there was a bridge between my place that would bring me to New Hampshire but only on a certain schedule and I got lost in a mall and time was running out to get to the bridge before it closed for the day.

These injuries are getting are becoming somewhat tiresome, eh?

Still, it’s not just the Bruins judging by my fantasy team. Two on IR and two DTD. I was beaten 11-0 last week by Dr Hangrenaid’s team – might need an overhaul!

Speaking of the good doctor, where’s he been lately? Or the other doctor? Or BagelBruin?

In work today, but planning to slip out to the Thirsty Bear in an hour or so for some darts practice …

At some point I need to overhaul my fantasy team because it’s not doing all the great.

Darts practice or Blue Moon drinking practice?

Considering where you work, it’s not drinking on the job – it’s a quality control inspection!

Dude, my fantasy teams have been the same way. One of them has four guys on IR. Seriously. Krejci, Price, Getzlaf and… some other guy

Morning, pals!

  • Cable box has yet to arrive!
  • Here’s an interesting article. Sigh.
  • https://twitter.com/thescorenhl/status/930163637519446022

  • Skating tonight. Haven’t hit the ice since 10/24. He will not be impressed with me.
  • Actually saw some roommates tonight. Like, whoa.
  • comment image

  • Senyshyn is getting the hang of the AHL, which is good. Maybe we see him next year, a la DeBrusk.
  • I think if Krejci comes back and they don’t go on a stretch where they look good for several consecutive games, they need to make a move. For what, I don’t know, but something needs to happen.

    Hey Pals!
    A mixed bag o’ health, eh? Classic Bruins.
    Double tonight, single Wednesday (a day I want to either rename or respell), double Thursday. The knee has been fine on the ice, it’s just been miserable when off the ice. Regeneration needed!!!!
    Mo work today. This is becoming a habit – a bad habit!! Like nun in a mini skirt bad habit. Okay, I’ll show myself out now.

    Hahahahah

    You are in rare form today, sir!

    My knee is weird: mostly doesn’t hurt while doing stuff. A couple hours later, it’s miserable, and the next morning, it’s like I have a new knee all together. So I guess I can get the most bang for my buck if I do a couple miles every night, deal with the pain when I go to bed, and wake up new kneed? Hahah

    Try taking Ibuprofen just before doing stuff

    I never take it beforehand, I should give it a shot.
    I smashed this knee while out running a year ago, and apparently walked around on a dislocated kneecap for nine months. Now it doesn’t align itself correctly which is why I’m all hurty!

    I did read somewhere that it does affect stomach permeability which depending on what you’re doing can be bad. But the people they studied were like, hardcore marathoners and such.

    Try naproxen instead (but still preemptively), it works much better for joint pain.

    My left knee has decided it likes to be all hurty when I get up in the morning. Getting old is so much fun.

    Similar for me. The pain grows as the day goes on. A good diet helps. I can tell when I’m not eating right. Wild caught fish, wild venison, greens, and less sugar and booze. Simple, right?

    I hope you’re getting suitably remunerated now for all this work …

    It’s a side job so, yes, I’ll be pulling in some cash. I’m supposed to install Friday.

    As for the home front, I work for the missus now. I don’t have to have any contact with assface. He does still hold the purse strings, though, and I have the feeling something is up. I intend to ride it out here for awhile. I have a complete metal shop here and a flexible schedule. We would have to put up a metal shed over at Jo’s house if we moved. Hey, I really have very little to complain about in my life and lots to be grateful for!
