Morning Free Association: Winterpeg

The Bruins are in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for a game tonight. In a radio interview with Dale & Keefe on WEEI, Patrice Bergeron said that it wasn’t warm up there and also, “We’re back in Canada,” which is a euphemism for it’s cold enough to freeze your gonads off. Also, Patrice has no advice for what to do in Winnipeg.

I do have a suggestion: don’t go to Winnipeg in the winter, where I’m pretty sure the locals call it Winterpeg. Rather, you should totally wait until summer and visit Gimli up the road on Lake Winnipeg, see the Viking and enjoy a summer’s day in the hugest Viking Fest in Manitoba, and therefore the world.

Anyway, I got a little bit away from the ice hockey.

Yesterday, the Bruins announced that Torey Krug is ailing with the poorly defined and vague upper body injury and that forward Paul Carey and defenseman Connor Clifton were recalled to the Bruins in Winnipeg. Coming back was Peter Cehlarik, who didn’t seem to be igniting much offensively. Cassidy wants him to get in some playing time in Providence.

“Ideally, if Peter could stay here and work through it with practice, etcetera…but we play tomorrow, Friday we get in late so doesn’t look like we’ll practice, Sunday’s off, so the time for him to get better is in Providence,” Cassidy explained. “It’s not ideal being way out in Winnipeg, but that’s what we’re gonna do.”

Paul Carey is the latest former South Shore Kings player to join this Bruins team. He joined the organization last month when he was traded to the Bruins from the Senators. Connor Clifton, who may or may not be the lovechild of Robert Downey, Jr and Will Wheaton, is making his second tour with the big club this season.

Other Bruins Injuries:

  • Jake Debrusk is skating again and looks to return by the next week’s road trip
  • Matt Grzelcyk’s MRI came back showing no substantial damage and he could return during the next road trip
  • Marcus Johansson will return by next week
  • Kevan Miller is likely to be out for another couple weeks
  • David Pastrnak is skating and handling his stick,
    Stickhandling

    (stickhandling practice)


    however, the team has not announced his timetable to return

So I think I may need to stop editing the site at 7 am.
Because that means I open my computer at 7am, and therefore can be distracted by news & Twitter, and then suddenly it’s 9AM and I think it’s 8:30 BUT DAMMIT, SOMEONE IS WRONG ON TEH INTERNET!!!!

I have become a member of the horrible Bruins Twitter who hate Backes and Nordstrom. Forgive me.

Hi folks.

Good to see the boys are on the mend. Might not be such a bad thing for them to have a rest at this stage of the season ( I know working to regain fitness after injury isn’t exactly rest, but a change is as good as a break as we say, and maybe you do too…).

With arguably three of the top six F out and now three of the top 6 D as well, maybe it’s no surprise the Bs form has dipped a little.

Glad Cehlarik is back in PRO. He’s got potential but making too many mistakes at the moment. Let him build his confidence back up. I’m no sports psychologist but I’m convinced confidence is a bigger factor in performance than most people think.

Walking to the train station this morning I was listening to a John Lennon album when I got a call from a number in New York. Spooky! Don’t know who it was – I didn’t answer since I don’t know anyone in NY …

Also, international calls are expensive

Yeah, that was also factored into my decision not to pick up!

Around here, we’ve been getting hammered with robo-calls claiming to be from the social security admin – “unusual activity has been detected on your SSID please press 1 to feed us all of your personal information”

It occurs to me that SSID is NOT like a credit card number that has transactions assigned to it. Maybe this isn’t on the up & up… hmm

Our bots usually clone a number so they appear to be local callers, so getting one from NY was particularly outre!

For a while there was a serious problem with my home loan that needed immediate attention.

I don’t own a home.

Confidence is everything!!! Walk that walk, talk that talk…

Double last night with a young man who will be reffing college hockey soon, if there is any justice in the world (his brother is awesome and is already in the college ranks)….. of course, players were whining about him… hilarious… I’m sorry that he can see what you’re doing and actually called it….. by the way, I was going to call it if he didn’t… however, I was confident he would.
A lil mini slump and a couple injuries does not necessitate emergency action!! Get ’em healthy is the order of the day!!!
