Morning Free Association: Week Two

Week two of Bruins training camp has started and Charlie Coyle is no longer wearing a red no-contact jersey. He’s relieved to be back in black.

Coyle is expected to make the jump to second line center after the departure of David Krejci. While he’s been recovering from his injury, a buffed Jack Studnicka has taken to centering Taylor Hall and Craig Smith during the first week.

Derek Forbert has been paired up with Charlie McAvoy during camp. Part of this is to see how the chemistry works out and part of it is to understand the defensive structure. Turns out Charlie is fantastic.

Tonight the second preseason game will be played by the Bruins against the New York Rangers. I’m. not sure of the roster for this away game other than Fabian Lysell and the goalie tandem of Linus Ullmark and Kyle Keyser. This will be an odd game watching the possible successor to Tuukka Rask minding the net. Bruce Cassidy said that Lysell had given the Bruins enough to warrant another game.

Tonight’s game will be broadcast on NHL Network.

Good moring!
We will try to watch the game tonight. We have ROKU now, but have only watched one show in the week it’s been connected… we just don’t watch tv much. Just preseason, but i’ m excired..i.want to see.Ullmark in action. Pretty decent stats for a guy who played in Buffalo!
Work day yesterday. Unpacking stuff, organizing, and painting! Jo painted 2/3 of our bedroom. Organizing lumber turned into a huge job… today we go slower

Does Charlie get an “A” on his jersey this year?
He’s really embraced his role as a leader on the defense.

I think it’s time Charlie.gets the A. He is the face of the.franchise going forward and appears to be mature enough for the role

Seems a good choice. Foligno maybe? Wonder if they will split home and away A again

Foligno would be a good choice! There are so many new guys, I forget some of them sometimes. I get the feeling that Foligno is a leader, A or no A.
