Morning Free Association: The Quiet

Embed from Getty Images

Yesterday was a quiet day for the Bruins. No news of further signings, no news of any trades. No transactions at all.

As it stands, the Bruins do not have enough cap space to sign all of their RFAs especially the notable roster players.

Something has got to give and soon.

Hi All!
Working hard to get this place ready for the Fourth. Been without internet for a day. Some squirrel brain mofo forgot to pay the bill.

Anders Lee settled for 7 mil for 7 years…. no thanks

Hey hockey pals!

Super weird that coveted deadline guys like Mojo and Dzingle haven’t signed yet, huh?
Maybe they aren’t getting the gigantic offers they expected. Part of the deadline grab is that you’re looking for UFA rentals. When those UFAs aren’t UFAs anymore, it’s not the same. So, part of me wants to say that teams don’t want to make the commitment, but… clearly, teams have been making weird commitments, so I don’t know.

I just talked in a circle.

Maybe the RFA market has to settle before they go anywhere.

SCHOOL IS (FINALLY) OUT FOR SUMMER!

I took a short summer session. It was 5 weeks, but Salem College crams 12 weeks of material into it. I’m glad it’s over.

So who wants to play Age of Empires 2 on Steam?

Morning all. Fourth of July and Mad Marathon on Sunday means ALL THE PEOPLE IN TOWN!! Helping out at a water station for the marathon from 6-10 then working till about 3 because I’m stupid and say yes to things when I should say no. But if anyone’s up at 6am on Sunday (so pretty much just London Bear!) you can catch the runners going over the bridge on the web cam!

Ah cool. Yes, that bridge cam often pops up in my “watch next” list on Youtube! What’s the weather supposed to be like?
I wasn’t sure if you’d had to move out of VT.

Weather looks like it should be great. 75 and sunny.

Morning all.

Congrats to USWNT on beating England in the women’s footy world cup last night. Anybody been following it? It’s been quite popular over here.

Surprised Mojo hasn’t signed anywhere yet. Maybe he’s waiting to see how much space the Bs can clear?

Haven’t really been following but I hear we have the better Morgan! lol

And yeah, surprised as well Mojo hasn’t signed. Thought for sure he’d go somewhere during free agent frenzy.

Boy, I’d love it if the Bruins weren’t paying $3M to Beleskey & Seidenberg this season.

I think the cap situation comes down to Carlo.
Heinen can’t demand squat, and if he does, they can walk away.
Charlie wants his money and is bound to get ~6m.
If Carlo gets ~4, then the money is close.

He’s been good enough that he could plausibly ask for more, but is low profile enough that he could come in a little cheaper.

I’d be happy to get Carlo for around 4, especially for a decent term. That boy is solid and on an upward trajectory.

Part of me is wondering if Charlie takes a bridge deal. He was great in parts of this season, but he was hurt for a LOT of it.

I’m torn on the prospect of a bridge deal – yeah, he comes in at a moderate price today, but then costs even more next year , so good luck signing Krug.
