Yesterday, the Bruins announced the particulars regarding Development Camp, which starts today. Actually, for the youngest cubs, camp started last night with meetings! Everyone enjoys meetings!

Here’s the roster for camp. The defense seems a little light but when you remember that most of our defensive prospects have played in Providence building up ice time and experience during most of last season, it makes sense for them to have the summer off.

The 2019-20 NHL season will be the 95th for the Boston Bruins, which makes them the third oldest team in the league. With the rollout of the schedule on their website, it seems like the Bruins may have employed someone born in 1924 to work on the website.

Am I Right

They’ve helpfully compiled a list of Games of Note, just in case you needed it. Here’s the full schedule in all it’s 82-game glory.

Finally, the Bruins extended their qualifying offers to notable RFAs Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo, and Danton Heinen.

Roberto Luongo has retired. Does that screw over Vancouver financially?

They’re on the hook for 3 million for the next three years, Right now, with the recapture, they have $15 million in cap space. And looks like they have a lot of RFAs and UFAs to deal with.

Hey hockey pals!

I gotta tell you, yesterday’s funeral was bananas. It was a very elegant affair. There were six eulogies. SIX. And the very first one included an F-bomb dropped in the first or second sentence (in a place of worship, at the altar) and a few references to substance abuse. I have dubbed the event Celebrity Rehab 2: Ruckus at the Temple.

It was actually quite chilly this morning, but meant to get up to 30C on Saturday, which is waaaay too hot for my liking! Thankfully the forecast is more sensible for Sunday when I’m off to see the Red Sox!!

Interesting conversation with my auto mechanic yesterday….. Apparently, the boss has lost his shit with several local business people….the hardware store, plant nursery, the vet, two auto mechanics, and a barber!!! Dude has no hair!!! What in the actual fuck could he argue about?? Didn’t want to wait for his hair(singular) cut. Wow!!! Time to institutionalize!!!!

Best option if they can’t sign Mojo.
