Morning Free Association 2/11/16

The driver checks the mirror seven minutes late
The crowded riders’ restlessness enunciates
The Guess Who suck, the Jets were lousy anyway
The same mood every day
And in the turning lane
Someone’s stalled again
He’s talking to himself
And hears the price of gas repeat his phrase
“I hate Winnipeg…”
-The Weakerthans

Hope the morning is going well. Win tonight.

Good morning, everyone! Big game tonight with Looch’s return to Boston with the Kings. He wrote a nice letter to Boston for The Players’ Tribune, which is well worth the read.

If the Bruins are looking for defensive help at the trade deadline, options appear to be thinning. Jonas Brodin and Matt Dumba had been mentioned in trade rumors, but with Brodin out 3-6 weeks with a broken foot, the Wild are less likely to trade a d-man for offensive help. Kevin Shattenkirk of the Blues has been rumored to be on the trading block, but with Alex Pietrangelo now out for at least three weeks, the Blues’ attempts to get Jonathan Drouin or *cough* other offensive help *cough* may be on hold. We can also put the arguments about trading for Dustin Byfuglien to rest as he just signed a big extension with the Jets.

What’s on tap?

Good morning, everyone!

While you were sleeping, Dougie Hamilton took advantage of his newfound second-pair minutes due to the Wideman suspension and got himself a goal and an assist against the Caralina Whirligigs.

Imagine having an entire roster full of players who look like Tilda Swinton. The universe is strange and wonderful.

We get to thank the Buffulo Stabs in person tonight for giving us even more Habenfreude!
