Yesterday, Torey Krug started skating again after spending much of the summer in a walking boot and ambulating with crutches. He joins Noel Acciari in the red no-contact jerseys performing various drills. While Krug is hoping too be back for the start of the season, he revealed that he spent more time in the boot than he expected so it will take him time to get back to game shape. Acciari expects to be able to play a pre-season game and be ready for season opener.

Meanwhile in China, the other half of the Boston Bruins were practicing in preparation of their game in Beijing on Wednesday. Head coach Bruce Cassidy decided to change up his centermen in his practice lines, moving Jack Studnicka down to the second line and Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson up to play between Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.

Brad Marchand – Jakob Forsback Karlsson – David Pastrnak
Jake DeBrusk/Martin Bakos – Jack Studnicka – Ryan Donato
Joakim Nordstrom/Peter Cehlarik – Trent Frederic – David Backes
Chris Wagner – Colby Cave – Jordan Szwarz

Urho Vaakanainen/Jakub Zboril – Charlie McAvoy
John Moore – Kevan Miller
Matt Grzelcyk – Brandon Carlo

Tuukka Rask
Jaroslav Halak
Derek Dun

The two centers are vying for the coveted third line center slot that opened up when Riley Nash left for the Columbus Blue Jackets in free agency. Studnicka has been pretty cocky about wanting management to have to make a difficult decision to send him back to juniors. JFK spent last season with the P-Bruins, playing in 58 games scoring 15 goals, 17 assists for 32 points. We’ll see if Cassidy sticks with this lineup for the game in Beijing.

Maybe the Bs can work out a deal with Rick Nash like the Preds had with Fisher. Have him come in at the deadline, get in shape, score playoff goals. No wear and tear from an exhausting NHL season.

Wow! Hi! It’s Stripes. I can post again!!!!! I’ve been shut out since the Quaider trade , hence the nickname. I will miss Quaider when it comes time to put up the dukes, because he brings a ruckus to the ice when he drops the gloves!!!!!!
So many things. I’ve missed my B2B.
If the swamp isn’t in DC anymore, it’s everywhere else on the East Coast! Just need a lil more on my favorite rivers!!! New boat yesterday!! Very excited to try it. Bringing it to Jamaica, VT Saturday to play around in the West River.
This team gives me plenty of reason for optimism, peppered with question marks. It’s going to be fun!!!
I played hockey Sunday!!! (Pick up, very casual) Lots of fun, but I hurt now. Paddling later today, then playoff double header tonight!!!! Let the games begin!!!!
Probably enough coffee for one day!!!!

WOOT!
GH told me you set up a new login and I was starting to worry that I hadn’t seen you post from it.
At least someone can enjoy this rain. I got caught in it this morning – during my entire drive to work, it was barely sprinkling out until 1/2 mile from the office, at which point it turns into a torrential downpour. My back is still damp from walking to the office door an hour and a half ago.

I had trouble trying to post from home. I’m at the library now. Now that I’m in, I’m hoping I can post from home. – Oh, I got to the library just as the sky opened…. also received a good drenching.

Morning all! Making a cameo as Ive decided to be functional today. Weekend was pretty busy with a wedding on Saturday and a clam bake fundraiser at the local “coon club” was interesting to see like 200+ guys walking around having a good time with not a single female in sight….of course it was also like 100% white with a GIANT “TRUMP” sign on display…but the only racist joke i heard that day wasnt even racist…so…yay? The story goes:

The owner of the local trash company had an all employee picnic at the coon club couple months prior and at one of the tables was a group of three black guys from Mississippi. After the dinner the three black guys stood up and the older of the three said….”Mr. xxxx, We really wanna thank you today for having us out here. We cant wait to get back to Mississippi to tell our friends that we went up north and went to a coon club….AND WE CAME BACK ALIVE!!!”

That and “one of our members for some reason always goes after older women, we were at the casino and he was hitting on some 90 yr old women…so i asked him…what does 90 yr old pussy smell like? he thinks for a second….depends.” were the two most popular jokes told that day.

Ooh, it seems I can post if I do it anonymously! LB here.

Good to see some hockey this weekend! I caught the second period of the China game. That familiar frustration of seeing the Bs penned in their own zone. Ah well.

Halak was very good, but he’s always had his on and off days. In a way it was a bit depressing to see him do so well because that will kick the Tuka haters into action. Didn’t see the two goals he allowed in the third, but the commentators were saying it was extremely hot and humid in the arena and they would be surprised if Halak could keep up his performance level if the Bs kept giving him so much work to do…

Donato also caught my eye during the period I saw.

Hope you’re all well!
