Morning Free Association: That’s not Kuhl-man

Embed from Getty Images

Yesterday the Bruins assigned Karson Kuhlman and Jeremy Lauzon to Providence. It’s a curious move in that it could be cap-related (saving every penny counts) or getting the kids some extra training and practice down in Providence. Or, it could mean that the team is getting ready to make a trade and needed the roster spot.

With the trade deadline now 13 days away, deals are starting to happen. Last week, the Maple Leafs traded for a backup goalie since Michael Hutchinson wasn’t working out as well and Frederick Andersen cannot start all the games, especially when hurt.

Last night, a pretty big trade happened between the Minnesota Mild and Pittsburgh Penguins, sending LW Jason Zucker to the Pens for Alex Galchenyuk, a 2020 first-round pick, and a defensive prospect.

So, yeah, the market is expensive and I wouldn’t be surprised if we lose a prospect or young roster player.

Morning all.

Juggling working from home with looking after an ill little girl.

I assume Lauzon isn’t suspended from playing in the AHL.

Oh, geez, I’d thought it was Stripes.
Hope the little one feels better soon.

I think suspensions must be served… One way or another.

What up, y’all?
Pens are gearing up! Galchenyuk has never lived up to his third overall draft pick back in 2012… Has Hab and Penstink. Sketchy acquisition, at best. Zucker is one of those relentless forecheck guys… wouldn’t be terrible in black and gold (especially as he’s Coyle’s buddy). Pens have had their eye on him for awhile, they say.
Get my shit together day. heading al norte manana.

Morning all. Had a dream last night Tom Hanks and I were on a super secret spy mission. Bad guys were coming just as my alarm went off so I don’t know if our forged letters tricked them or not.
