Morning Free Association: Happy Canada Day!

Happy Canada Day!

Canada Day!

Usually the denizens of the Great White North celebrate this day with provincial concerts, days on the lake with a two-four, and by watching the Free Agency Tracker on Hockey Central or TSN or wherever they get their hockey fix.

Unfortunately, free agency has been kicked down the road a bit and the season hasn’t finished up yet, so…

Back in Bostonia, the Bruins are returning player by player. Joakim Nordstrom has now joined the chat returned to Boston.

He talked about how quickly he and his girlfriend decided to go back to Sweden once they had a chance, so quickly that he didn’t pack any hockey gear. He figured that living in their home during a pandemic would be easier on them and their dog rather than living in a Boston high-rise. He’s not wrong.

Even with Sweden’s looser restrictions on public gathering, Nordy hadn’t been skating. He couldn’t get his gear until mid-June. However, he was able to work with his trainer, so he should be in pretty good shape.

He’s been back for about a week now and he needs to complete another week of self-isolation before joining the team at Warrior. Turns out, that’s just in time for training camp.

The other guys were at practice again, this time picking on one of my boys, denying him and laughing at him.

The struggle is real.

Hockey is getting closer.
And it’s July.
I am so confused.

Morning all. And in a coincidence one of the answers in my morning crossword was Canadian bacon. Also, I spelled coincidence right on the first try.

Good Morning!
I saw that save by Jaro on FB yesterday. Wow! If course, the Tuukka haters commented. Yo, we have a wonderful goalie situation…. 1a and 1b, 1 and 1a, whatever you want to call it, but Tuukka is number one. He’s more consistent, and while their styles are different, I believe Tuukka is more fundamentally sound. What evs, haters gonna hate. Glad Nordy is back. He doesn’t always figure in the scoring but so solid defensively. When he does score, it’s usually clutch.
Woo hoo, talking hockey!!!
