I could say all sorts of stuff about this but instead I will just leave this here and let you all enjoy it.

A reminder – Patrice Bergeron is a finalist for the 2018 Frank J. Selke Trophy. Anze Kopitar and Sean Couturier are the other two finalists for the award, which will be given tomorrow at the NHL Awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

There are some good sized defensemen that could be around when the Bruins finally have a pick.
take a peak at Central Scouting’s final rankings.

Hi Pals!
Can we start calling it the Bergeron Trophy? The guy epitomizes all the qualities required for a Selke award. Despite number of games played, I think he wins.
Looking forward to the draft. That kid from Thayer, Jay O’Brien is supposed to go high. Second round, most likely, although size might push him to the third round. Brady Tkachuk will be a lottery pick! So much great hockey around us!!!
Coffee!

I really hope they just give Bergy the Selke. He certainly deserves it.
There’s this annoying tendency to give NHL awards like this to less qualified players to highlight what they’ve done, knowing that they will probably never break through on their own, or to avoid giving the award to the same player in consecutive years. While I sort of appreciate the thought, we’re not really watching the sport for participation awards, and it makes it difficult to place the meaning of the award in context with past winners.

Good morning,

Is it the awards tonight? I was just thinking this morning it must be soon.

I was watching a Behind the B episode this morning, in which Marchy is learning to play the guitar because he decided he spends too much time on road trips sitting in his hotel room looking at his phone.

I thought that was pretty cool, although I spent most of my day off yesterday doing Youtube guitar lessons and wondering if I should check my phone. A happy balance is probably best!

We have more people in the office in our department than we have desks for today, so I’m in a small meeting room on my Jack Jones. I’ve had worse days…
