Morning Free Association: The Desert Yeti

Embed from Getty Images

One thing that got lost in the shuffle of the NHL Draft was the fact that The Yeti, our former Swedish forward, cultural ambassador, and best friend to Loui Eriksson, Carl Soderberg was traded to the Arizona Coyotes.

Sure, it wasn’t the biggest trade of the day and he’s certainly not the best player ever. But he was once ours, our enigma that we were sure wasn’t real and then *poof* he was.

And then almost as quickly, he was gone.

I only hope that he’ll find enough couture in the desert to keep him engaged or that Loui Eriksson gets traded there.

HEY HOCKEY PALS

2nd busiest day of the year for us so i’m just dropping in to point out that I still have a pulse

Also, I realized in the shower this morning that every single day for the last 16 days, I have thought about how we lost the Stanley Cup.

Man.

I loved Louie – was so glad he finally got to show his true potential that last year after his concussion issues. And I was there for his final goal as a Bruin! He hasn’t scored too many more since then …

Carl never really won me over, to be honest. I thought he was a bit of an underachiever.

He was way overpriced for what he gave the Avs, but he delivered for them this year – It was the first time I really thought he lived up to his potential.
It’s what I wanted to see from him as a Bruin.
I’m glad they weren’t paying him $4.75M all this time.
