Morning Free Association: Sweeney Official

Embed from Getty Images

The Boston Bruins made it official by putting a ring on it extending Don Sweeney for several years.

Jerk.

Neither Sweeney nor Cam Neely chose to stand before the media to talk about it, instead their next press availability will be during the draft in Montreal.

Jerks.

On e person who did speak about it was Charlie Jacobs, the Jacobs member who sees to day-to-day stuff.

Dumbass.

Enjoy just winning enough.

Morning.

Enjoy just winning enough.

I hope they dont become like the Red Wings. Make the playoffs a bunch of times in a row. Get bulldozed in the first round every time. Then become really crap.

Morning all. Locked myself and SatanDog out of my apartment this morning when we went for the post-kibble walk. Had to tear out a screen and crawl through the bedroom window. That was a fun way to start the day.

My friend across the street has a key for when she feeds Nugget but I didn’t want to test the limits of our friendship by waking her up so early in the morning! lol

GH has won me over to the “time to move on from Sweeney” camp. The 2015 draft return needed to be stronger given those 3 sequential picks, the Krug situation was botched. The 2C hole has been a mess.
There was some scoring depth available, but then Haula & Smith would disappear for long stretches.

OTOH, Hampus Lindholm & Tomas Nosek have been pretty solid acquisitions. Forbort has been a great PK asset.

But Foligno, Brown, and Coyle have been less than promised.

Coyle has been a huge disappointment. I hoped for more from Foligno, not much left in the tank, I guess. Haula has been fine, actually outperformed. Still, the three sequential picks… so bad. Zboril still has a chance to be a good dman, but that’s a big if.

Didnt really see enough of Brown to make a judgement. Should’ve made more use of him in the playoffs.

Good morning,
The off season is here! Where do all the chips fall? There are a few desirable free agents. Can’t hope for much from the draft, unless Jersey wants Jake. Would they give up the #2 pick for him? Doubtful, but who knows? Slavkofsky could help immediately. Intriguing.
At home, the hummingbird wars are heating up. Sit on our back porch for a few. You’re bound to see an aerial display that is unparalleled.
Jo and I watched four baby Cardinals pledge Sunday morning, followed by baby Tree Swallows. The tree swallows have been the stars of spring. Their first two didn’t require much coaxing. Number three took about fifteen minutes. Number four did not want to fly. Mama and Papa needed an hour and a half to get the runt to fly.

Oh, I seem to remember people not liking Chiarelli very much.

Oh yeah, the torches & pitchforks were out for Chia long before the Boychuk trade.

Hummingbirds? That’s great! I’ve almost never seen hummingbirds in the wild.

We have seen less of the turkeys and more of the bard owl lately. The turkeys have spread out over the wider neighborhood now that they’re roughly adults. The owl has picked a couple of spots along our driveway to use in his circuit to watch for rodents, but if he catches you looking at him, he’ll fly off.

The hummingbirds love our back porch. You won’t sit for more than a few minutes for a visit. They often fly up to my face, like within a foot, and check me out. A lil unnerving, at first.
We hear owls, but rarely see them.

Orioles come to the hummingbird feeder, as well.

Bard owl, eh? To-whit or not to-woo.

Saw a kestrel on my walk yesterday. A very rare bird of prey sighting!

Kestrels can hover and even back up in flight! Haven’t seen one in ages!
