Morning Free Association: More Transactions

Embed from Getty Images

Every beginning must have an end. The brief era of Bruins forward Gemel Smith, the three games he played and the three he sat, is over. Smith has been placed on waivers just prior to the Christmas holiday roster freeze. This transaction can only mean one thing: Patrice Bergeron is on the verge of coming back before the holiday break.

Yes, Bergy is practicing with the team in a non-contact jersey and is said to be returning this weekend.

yes

Yes

Zdeno Chara has also returned to practice, also wearing that burgundy jersey which might also inform the other notable transaction yesterday: Jeremy Lauzon has been returned to Providence.

The team is coming together following the pile of injuries. Let’s hope they stay healthy for a while, like the rest of the season.

Hi all,

We want our Bergy back!

Today, while I was walking to the school I noticed a large pair of scissors in the road – a busy road – so being a good citizen I picked them up until I could find a bin. It occured to me later it’s lucky I didn’t stopped by the police, because I also had two sets of darts in my pocket. That would’ve taken some explaining!

Wait, the Bruins put Gemel on waivers?!
THEY WERE UNDEFEATED IN THE GEMEL SMITH ERA!

I mean, OK, the addition of a bottom-6 winger is unlikely on it’s face to be the tipping point between 3-0 and 1-2, but it really seems like spitting into the wind.

Morning all. I was all over the place in my dream last night:
On a plane
On a bus
Rehearsing a play
At a Yankee Swap
Met Gritty
At a random house

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN!?!
