Morning Free Association: Signings and Possible Call-ups

Urho Vaakanainen pushes the limits of sweater name-plate technology at Bruins rookie camp 2018

A few weeks back, the Providence Bruins signed Curtis Hall to a one-way deal. Yesterday, the Boston Bruins signed the 20 year-old right shooting center to a three-year entry level contract.

Hall was drafted in the 4th round in 2018, 199th overall. He’s got good size at 6’3″ but is a little undersized at 196 lbs. He played two seasons at Yale before opting to go pro. He decided to leave school after Yale canceled their season due to Covid. He’s obviously been playing well enough for Providence (before his injury) to get an ELC. Due to his current deal for this season, he isn’t eligible for the entry level slide of one of his years.

Zach Senyshyn is playing well enough for the P-Bruins to get a call-up when needed according to Mark Divver.

Senyshyn was drafted in that first round of the 2015 draft and one of the few Bruins prospects that hasn’t been called up full-time; this season Jeremy Lauzon and Jakub Zboril have officially cracked the big roster. With the way players have been dropping like flies lately or playing in a rather lackluster fashion, this call-up could be sooner than later. Please, anything that makes the team win would be welcome.

Aside from that, the Bruins have been pretty quiet in the last day, probably due to having 3 games in 4 days.

Oooh, it’s shopping list day, which includes deciding meals for the next seven days.

This is about as exciting as it gets nowadays!

She’s been in hiding – I think she abandoned hockey for a while.

Had to go start the van for Jo….. It’s 10°f here! WTF? If I could fast forward to warmer weather….. I’d be tempted to do so today!

You said you’re not working outside anymore, right? I hope so, cause that’s not outdoors weather!

Not.outside, but not exactly inside either. It’s out of this crazy wind, at least. 20 – 30 mph, gusts to 50 (33 kph). Wild weather!!

Am not enjoying the frigid day. While I was shaving, I could have sworn I heard a knocking at the door. It was my recycle bin getting blown over by the wind.

We had a large power outage last night. Glad I have lots of battery backups, especially for the pellet stove, but none for the lighting. Obviously all the clocks are screwed up. The internet and my work computers were strongly f*ed up. The cable modem took quite a while to go through whatever gyrations it needs. (I suppose I know what those gyrations are if I think about it, but geez.) Then the wifi box. Then the computers, and they each had different issues. (Having everything appear on the wrong monitor, but the mouse stuck on the other monitor was particularly annoying. Especially since one monitor was buried under stuff so I couldn’t see it.)

G’day folks.

Pandemic day 400ish: another grey, dull, boring day. Sonia has her vaccination on Friday, so that’s something.

I’m eligible soon and want.single.dose. I can’t remember what I had for breakfast…. forget about second shot dates

Yeah, I hope we have access to it. We just have the Moderna and Pfizer ones in the state so far. And the Moderna one sounds a lot more uncomfortable than the other shots I’ve had in the past.

One of two. Think we’re only using Pfizer and AstraZeneca here for the moment. She gets bumped up the queue because she is epileptic – mine won’t be for a few months yet.

The first dose gives a lot of protection though – apparently our medical bods are really pleased with the results so far and the vast majority that have had a shot have only had the one.

Good Morning!
Umm, it’s winter again! Spring lasted about 48 hours. Last blast of cold, I’m told.

Glad to hear that Senyshyn is developing. Watching Barzal kill the Bruins and knowing that Zboril, DeBrusk, and Senyshyn were drafted ahead of him has been driving me crazy. I’m not sure that the three of them could carry Barzal’s lunch. That’s a lil harsh, but really Sweenius..

And Senyshen was considered a downward reach – a guy who would likely still be around when the Bs next draft pick would happen, while there was some hype about Barzal. Definitely a mistake to take the one while the other was still on the board. I’m not one to second guess draft picks, because “guy at 17, playing other teens” is a long way from “guy in his 20s playing in the NHL”, but ouch.

This is one of those whiffs that detractors will bring up for as long as Sweeney is working for the Bruins.

Yeah, I remember at the time there was some anger over not picking up Barzal. The draft is a gamble – look how many teams passed on Pasta – but sometimes you gotta play safe. Hindsight is always 20/20 tho!
