Morning Free Association: A New Signing

Embed from Getty Images

Lost in the shuffle of recent end of season media availabilities, celebrations of the 10th anniversary of the Bruins last Stanley Cup win, and talk of what will happen to certain free agents, was the signing of a new forward.

On June 14th, just days ago, the Boston Bruins announced they signed Swedish forward Jesper Frödén formerly of the the Swedish Hockey League’s Skellefteå AIK. This season he played in 52 games, scoring 22 goals and 18 assists. He recently competed in the International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship skating for the Tre Kronor in which he scored 3 goals and 1 assist in 5 games.

Frödén is 26 years old and standing at 5’10” and weighing 176 pounds. He’s a little undersized and while listed as a forward, he primarily plays right wing. His contract is a one-year, two-way deal worth $842,500 at the NHL level.

I saw the highlights if that one. They done good.

Vegas took no penalties in that game. Of the last ten teams who didnt take a penalty in a playoff game, eight of them lost! Crazy stat.

Has the weather cooled down over there? (In England, I mean. Not Skillettee.)

Yes! The rain started yesterday evening, literally seconds after Sonia had finished mowing the lawn.

It was so humid, though, we continued to sit outside, under our garden parasol/umbrella. On a related note, today we have ordered a bigger parasol/umbrella!

Ha!

Nothing better than the cool down after a good rain.

It sounds just like our weather one week ago! I am about to hang a 20′ x 40′ tarp over part of our back yard. Looks like I am moving onto a tent at the end of June. We don’t want to pay another month rent. We have a 16′ tent. Plumbing is starting to be hooked up. Roughing it!

A family friend was a plumber and once gave us a bumper sticker that said “If it wasn’t for your plumber, you wouldn’t have anyplace to go!”

My plumber was supposed to be the best, but has been as effective as Jimmy Hayes

Maybe he IS the best, but the pool of plumbers in Monrovia isn’t very deep!

Oh no! Hope you get that sorted. That tent doesn’t sound too bad, though!

We originally bought this tent for Jo’s daughter and hubby, no campers. The idea was to do a luxury camping experience for them. It never happened, but we use the tent every now and again

Good morning!
Is it Monday? Jo left for CT, trying to work, but the brand new heating system is leaking!!! So glad I hired this plumber… not. Gotta hitch up my britches and move forward!
Froden, sounds like a reasonable signing. Two way deal, what can go wrong? I’m pretty sure this guy is not a Cam Neely sign. :-D. If Cam were GM, the signings would be bigger…. at least when measured in total mass.

Jo and I did enjoy an evening paddle on our local river yesterday. Got off the water during our long dusk…. the sun disappears behind the mountain about 7, but it stays light until almost 9.

That sounds gorgeous! Lots of pleasant dusk sunlight but without blinding the person who is facing westward.

The sun was pretty blinding on the southwestward sections, before it disappeared. It makes it tough to see some of the rocks in your path!
