Well folks, your pal me dropped the ball — after having a first birthday part for my son on Sunday, I completely lost track of time and didn’t publish a Morning Skate yesterday.
How does one lose track of the days of the week? Good question. Our top people will be investigating in the days to come.
Anyways, it’s Tuesday. Hopefully you had a solid start to your week yesterday — may it continue today.
After bolstering their coaching staff on Friday, the B’s held media availabilities with Chris Kelly, Adam McQuaid, and Ryan Mougenel on Monday, introducing the new guys.
The NHL also released game times for the Bruins’ 2021-2022 season on Friday afternoon — the first game of the season will be at 7 PM on Oct. 16, and the B’s don’t have a ton of matinee games this season, which is good.
Other than that, status quo, aside from David Pastrnak winning the “Best Czech Hockey Player” award again.
Between Pastrnak, David Krejci, and a brief appearance by Jaromir Jagr, the Bruins have cornered the market on Elite Czechs in recent years.
Anyways, what’s on tap for today?
Today’s discussion topic
I think I posted this last year, but — assuming his production remains relatively stable, there probably won’t be any Czech player to challenge Pastrnak for the Czech crown in the coming years, right?
