Morning Free Association: Dog Days of Free Agency

On July 1st, there is a flurry of activity with regards to signings in the NHL. This makes sense as it is the start of the NHL year. By the middle of the month, signings only trickle in.

While there is still some talk of Artemi Panarin and Jeff Skinner potentially being on the market, there aren’t a whole lot of deals that are happening either. well, other than Chicago getting rid of the restrictive Marian Hossa salary cap issue.

Still, the Bruins have apparently signed the last of their RFAs, although there are no details as of yet.

Colby Cave is not the most exciting player. Unlikely to make the big squad, he will be an important player down in Providence with the AHL affiliate. With Tommy Cross gone to greener pastures in the Blue Jackets system, Cave could fill a leadership role with the P-Bruins.

Don Sweeney has signed all of his RFAs. He’s added to the defense, shored up the goaltending, and signed some prospects to ELC.

Does he have another move or two up his sleeve?

Hey Pals!
It happened again (I think). My post no post.
Just as well, not much to say except, ” Do something, Donnie, p-p-p-please!!!!! “.
Oh boy, there are painters here (finally!) and one of them has radical Latino Christian radio blaring. Do I A) Respond with Celia Cruz on the Bose, B) Start the mower and now around him, or C) ignore? I’m thinking D) pour gasoline on his phone and strike a match. Yo, if you find comfort in the Lord, great. No need to broadcast it.
Climbing off my soapbox to find some devil bourbon!

When he’s painting you listen to his radio station …

I’m painting! Okay, maybe painting the town red doesn’t count, but I’m painting it blue!

Do something, Donnie, p-p-p-please!!!!!

Yeah, I know!
I’m curious what CBJ thinks they can get for Panarin and WHY they would consider trading him (*again*). This is a guy who compares closely to Pasta or Marchand, and is a no-brainer first line player on most teams.
Why would you part with him?
I’d LOVE to see a guy like that come to Boston – if we can get 2 lines scoring at a high level, life should be pretty good for the Bruins.

Morning all

I certainly hope so because as things stand the Bs don’t look as good as the team that finished last season, and they are going to need to be better judging by improvements some other teams have made.

Hmm, what else is happening? England got knocked out of the World Cup after actually having to play against a decent team. Also, we are currently babysitting a big, orange toddler prone to tantrums. Happy days.

I love that there is apparently no Chinese character for “PJ”!

I particularly like the fact that he has a sad because of the big orange baby balloon hovering about London taunting him.

It’s disappointingly small, though. We were hoping for a blimp we’d to be able to see from the office, but it is just a big balloon.
Still if it keeps him away from me I’m all for it!

That is pretty awesome. I wonder how sports nicknames fit in. I

I will keep the religious fanatic painter, if you’ll keep the big, orange toddler.

Morning all. Got a closer look at the tiki idols and they are not tiki idols. They are actually small round tables upside down and the tiki idols are just the pedestals and the huge scary eyebrows of doom are the table legs. Phew! I’m not getting cursed after all!

In my defense of being a complete idiot, they really do look like tiki idols from up on my porch! lol
