Morning Free Association: Bruins on the Green

The Boston Bruins held their annual golf fundraiser yesterday with athletes from Special Olympics of Massachusetts. Many of your favorites took a day off from Captain’s practice and played golf for a good cause.

John Moore wasn’t golfing since he’s still recovering from some serious arm injuries. However, he played the part of interviewer of his teammates and Special Olympians. Fun fact: superstar golfer Jeff who features in the clip along with David Krejci is from our area of Massachusetts and works at a local grocery store. I see him all the time and always make sure I say hello.

Patrice was there, looking as perfect as ever. You’ll be glad to know that he’ll be ready for the season opener, as if there was much doubt.

Meanwhile in Buffalo, Don Sweeney spoke with a few reporters at Key Bank Center where he was observing the young guns play in the Prospects Challenge. He had plenty to say about players’ injuries but perhaps the most interesting topic was restricted free agents Brandon Carlo and Charlie McAvoy. Obviously no deals have been made as of yet, but when asked about length of extensions, he is obviously looking to sign each player beyond the free agent threshold – 5 years for McAvoy, 4 for Carlo – so they can buy into their free agency. He doesn’t seem frustrated by the process though and assures us all that he will get them signed.

One thing that might help him in signing his top two right defenseman is the deal that Zach Werenski signed in Columbus. Werenski and the Blue Jackets agreed to a 3-year, $15 million deal or $5 million AAV. Sweeney did not have knowledge of the deal at the time, but he probably couldn’t help but feel like he was given a gift.

Let’s hope they sign very soon as training camp starts on Thursday.

I have a new boss. She owns seven guitars and plays drums too. I think we’re going to get along just fine.
