Morning Free Association: Release the…

The Bruins are nearly at full strength and it’s about time. Yesterday, Charlie McAvoy and Joakim Nordstrom both returned to practice. Even Tuukka reportedly practiced even though he is not expected to play in the round robin. Now the Unfit to Participate list is populated by David Pastrnak, Ondrej Kase, and Nick Ritchie.

It’s good because today’s practice has become must see viewing for the hockey deprived masses at 3pm on NESN.

However, yesterday something else made a bigger splash in the Pacific Northwest: the NHL’s Seattle franchise finally revealed their name, logos, and uniforms.

They did a great job from the secret tentacle in the S to the stealth Space Needle in the anchor secondary logo. Really, A+ work.

I just love the uniforms and the colours. So perfect

Of course, IW pointed out to me that it seemed to be reminescent of Trogdor, The Burninator and now I want gear even more.

Morning all. What shame it was a slow hockey news day yesterday and there’s nothing to talk about. lol

Morning folks.

Love the Space needle concealed within the anchor. Very clever.

I have no idea what that Trogdor thing is all about! lol

Hope you get to watch the practice this afternoon. There’s going to be commentary from Jack, Brick and Sophia Jurkstowicz (props to her for not changing her name when she went into media as a career – I’m sure she would’ve been advised to).

While I was originally unenthusiastic about league expansion, I really got excited about the Golden Fucking Knights by the time they got close to ready. I think I’m going to really enjoy seeing a team called the Kraken, in a natural hockey market.

32 is a perfect number of teams too. Balances the conferences, means half the teams make the playoffs, etc.

I was thinking they might have a local rivalry with Vancouver, too, but turns out they are the same distance apart as London and Bruges, so maybe not!

I love that they got to a natural 32 teams. Now to see if they are bright enough to realign the divisions to 8/8/8/8
