Morning Free Association: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Hockey

Ah, yesterday was a news day.

First, came word that Torey Krug has a left ankle injury and will be re-evaluated in three weeks. I guess this makes the pickup of John Moore over the summer a good thing. Oh yeah, and the Vaakanainening is happening. However, that power play is going to be tough to watch while Krug’s out.

Then, we found out another piece of news regarding the Third Line Center Challenge which had been up for grabs all summer among all the young players. Well, Studnicka, JFK, and Frederic. First to go was Studnicka, back to juniors.

bye bye

Then, JFK was shipped down to Providence.

oops

Maybe Trent Frederic could win the job in his first pro season? Nope.

Nope

He and Peter Cehlarik were both sent down to Providence.

The winner of the Bruins Third Line Center Challenge is

this guy

Yep. Sean Kuraly has been elevated to 3C, at least to start the season.

Okay, maybe it’s not official but it seems like it might be.

Well, at least Patrice is back.

We have a barred owl in our neighborhood, and we now hear it virtually every evening. I think I actually spotted it last night. I was outside laying a tarp over some stuff, and it flew behind the house. It’s a little fuzzy because it was forty feet away, moving at a good clip and I wasn’t wearing my eyeglasses. (and there’s also a cooper’s hawk which I see fairly often which is of similar size and coloration)

I was pretty pumped, since that is the first time I can remember actually spotting an owl in the wild.

I am a big fan of owls right now, because we had lots of mice last year and too many chipmunks every year. I think he was actually going after the chipmunk that has a nest outside our guest bedroom. I hate that little mo-fo.

Had to listen to their call online. Very cool! The Cooper’s Hawk, as well. They are at least a species of special concern, if not endangered. They are getting pushed out by development and by sharp shinned hawks, who do better in a suburban setting.

I’ve only seen great horned owls. They are yuge and will venture abroad during daylight hours on occasion.
My neighbor in monroe does an amazing owl call. All the owls in the valley respond and even come down to check him out – from a safe distance, of course. Homeboy been in the woods too long!

Morning all. Found my debit card!

I’d like to give a huge fuck you to the sunk who decided to spray in the middle of the night. I love being woken up by gigantic nasty stink bombs.

Uh yeah, hockey things!

Hey all,

good news about Bergy. He’s great everywhere, obviously, but the PP especially needs him.

Writing my season preview for the paper today. Sharks to win their division will be a bet for sure. Maybe the Flyers, too? Can Sabres make the playoffs? need to look into that. Anyone got any fancies??

Tomorrow is also the start of my darts league! Looking forward to that. I will get home either wired or hardly able to stay awake, so we’ll see whether I watch any of the game. Oh, it’s in Washington, so we’ll have the whole banner raising and stuff so I doubt they’ll start before 8pm Eastern. Might have to catch a rerun, then…

A prediction for the Flortheast? No!!!! Maybe all the other teams kill each other??

I don’t think the Flyers are there yet. That goaltending isn’t scaring anyone and the D is more O. Can we send the Leafs over there? Pittsburgh may be back – yuck.

The West? Coin tosses for how much i know about it.

That goaltending isn’t scaring anyone

Yeah, that was my main concern. Elliot always seems on the verge of doing something and then being very average

Oh, but if I tip the Flyers I could put a picture of Gritty in the paper!

Hey Pals!
News! But, where’s the good news? Hoping Grizz isn’t serious. He could quarterback the PP. Moore can QB the 2nd unit. It’s an opportunity for Grizz, albeit one that nobody wishes to happen. Opportunity none the less. Oh shit! I forgot about Charlie! He can QB, as well! Where’s the problem?
Coffee!!

McAvoy didn’t look particularly sparkling in his PP attempts last game.

No, he didn’t. Hopefully an anomaly. He can do it.
