Morning Free Association: Roster Trimming

Embed from Getty Images

Did you know the final Bruins-Flames game in Beijing was being broadcast yesterday morning on NBCSNPDQETC and on The Sports Hub? I didn’t until I got in the car to take my dog to the park. It seems that NHL preseason game broadcast schedules need to be determined by reading tea leaves or some other divination tool.

By the way, the Bruins won this game as well with strong efforts from the two Jakes: a debilitated Jake DeBrusk (2 goals) and a strong forecheck by Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson. Kevan Miller, who is not a Jake, got the empty-netter to make the final score 3-1.

With their season opener against the Washington Capitals only two weeks away, the Boston Bruins have started to cut down their training camp roster.

Morning, pals!

  • I moved five blocks away from where I lived in Southie before. keep ordering packages and they keep getting stolen. Had one replaced, asked if I could pick it up at UPS. UPS delivered it instead and it got stolen again! Thanks for understanding, Amazon!
  • One of my peeps is retiring and one of them is basically a 13th forward right now, so I’m recruiting. I hate interviewing. Ugh.
  • With that, one of my nemesis’ peeps approached me about working in my department, so that’ll be awkward, haha… she poached my best person last year and after six months he came back because he was miserable. Oopsie.
  • IS IT HOCKEY SEASON YET? I haven’t watched any preseason yet.

    A family in my town kept having packages stolen so they put one out with dog shit in it. They haven’t had a problem since!

    Ha! I like that. Why would you take someone else’s package from outside their door? What sort of a scumbag would you have to be?

    “I don’t know if they were ready for it, but we’ve been ready. Even in the Red and White game, there were bigger hits than normal. Guys are fighting for jobs and we have a lot of guys in our lineup tonight who were trying to showcase themselves.” –Paul Byron

    So Max Domi has shown that he can get his ass suspended
    SQUAD GOALS!

    Hey Pals!
    Thanks for the roster info…. seems camp just started and already the roster is getting trimmed. I suppose the Bs staff knows a lil suntin’ about the players before camp starts…. just a hunch on my part.
    The Rangers and Devils are playing a preseason game in Bridgeport and I’d like to go, but $75 a whack to see all the non roster players….. I don’t think so!
    Nice evening with Jo last night. Kayak rolling session in the pool and dinner in town. We rarely get to just chill. I liked it so much, I might chill all day!!!

    A month from now you could see mostly the same two rosters play for about $10… I think I can wait.

    $75? Nope.
    I’d heard that the game at TD Garden last week was much less than that
