Morning Free Association: Somebody got suspended

Embed from Getty Images

Cedric Paquette was suspended for one game for boarding Torey Krug in Wednesday night’s game. Krug was rattled but ultimately unhurt as a result of the collision with the boards. But was that suspension enough?

Well, yes. Paquette did receive the on ice penalty and sat for two minutes as a result. It was good to see that the DOPS deemed it necessary to enforce an additional punishment. As mentioned before, Krug was uninjured. And for all the rattiness of Paquette’s play on ice, he has no history of suspension or even any fines. Still, he needs to know when to slow his roll in these situations.


Hey guys, remember we have a manatee game at Philly tomorrow, so, like game thread and all that.

A discussion with one of the coaches after Wednesday’s prep girls game led me to reviewing the NCAA icing rule all morning – I’m right, as usual ;-). Actually, coach had a beef with my partner about an icing call. She was right and I knew it, but striped wall and all…. Anyway, I just emailed her. I tried to tell her that she was right without throwing my partner under the bus. sometimes you have to dance a bit I can dance.

Morning all. Work has been bonkers and made me completely forget to set up the B2B Secret Santa. I’ll hopefully maybe get that done today.

This week has been:

Manatee game huh? And it’s another in-the-office/blackout double header for me so it’ll be a radio/Twitter job.

My sister got me a craft beer advent calendar, which I’m rather pleased with!

My colleague has turned up sporting a Philadelphia Eagles hat. I told him they were scumbags who throw batteries at Father Christmas (which I only know thanks to BoT …)

Happy Friday

Hey Pals!
Lots of sleep and no games yesterday!!!! Why is it that I always feel more pain on rest days? Oh well, bottom line, I feel great today! Heading over to the Empire State today to ref a boys game. I love the school I’m going to as they give you a check the minute you walk in the door! Some schools still pay by mail, some use Refpay to make online EFTs, one waits to the end of the season, then sends a check for less than you are owed and you have to fight for the rest – I try to avoid the latter. Hey, I’m not there solely for the money, but I still want it.
I’ll be on ice at the famous Avon Old Farms School (Leetch, Patches, Quick, Bonino, to name a few) during the manatee game. Nice facility, the Whalers dumped a bunch of money into it before they left town as they practiced there a lot.
Let the Friday begin!!!!!

Hey Stripes,

We’re having a good little tussle in the H2H league this week! My new signing Jonathan Marchessault came up big for me last night!

Enjoy the ice and then enjoy spending all that lucre smile

The Avon Old Farms School mascot is the winged beaver. It’s actually kind of cool (motto ~= aspire & persevere)

I’m not even gonna bother making the jokes about an all-boys school and flying beaver.
