Morning Free Association: Development Camp 2021

Embed from Getty Images

The Boston Bruins are just one a few teams that are holding development camps this season. Starting this week, young prospects and camp invitees will work with Director of Player Development Jamie Langenbrunner and these other two guys.

Yes, just in case you missed it, it wasn’t the two Jacks, Ahcan and Studnicka, who now wear those numbers but rather the old dudes who won the Stanley Cup in those sweaters: Chris Kelly and Adam McQuaid. Chris Kelly is a Player Development Coordinator while Adam McQuaid was invited to try it out informally. Langenbrunner said that McQuaid has a lot of knowledge and skills to impart and is welcome if he wants to join once the staffs have been shuffled and more importantly, if he wants to.

Anyway, here is the list of who is at camp.

Now, you may note that some prospects like Fabian Lysell are not invited to camp. Some cannot travel and don’t meet the vaccination requirements.

Jamie Langenbrunner spoke with the media regarding camp. John Beecher and Brady Lyle also did. Mason Lohrei went one-on-one with Bruins reporter Eric Russo.

Camp continues this week through Friday. It seems that vaccinated fans can attend to watch from the stands.

I tried the bagel place in the next town over for maybe the 2nd time ever. Seriously, I think BagelBruin has been there more recently than I, and he lives 800 miles away. But it is in the opposite direction from my morning commute, then pandemic shut everything down. It’s probably 5 miles each way but 10-15 minutes to drive because of stoppages. It’s not bad – I’ll have to try it again.
But I haven’t had a decent hazelnut coffee in years. I’m calling it a win.

Yeah it can be a very fine line with flavored coffee. There was a chocolate truffle coffee I liked that wasn’t too overwhelming. But of course I can’t find it anymore.

Flavored coffee is normally geared to the average American”s taste. Yuck. It’s great when you find one that’s mellow. I used to mix flavored to unflavored at home… 5 – 1 unflavored!

Krejci sounds like such an exotic name. It cracks me up that it means “Taylor”. And Pasta is Smith, right?

I knew a guy who was called “szewc” – pronounced shevi-etz – it was Polish for ‘shoemaker’, and I never understood why.

Jo has no off switch. I’m trying to unplug Jo, then plug her back in.
