Monday Caps Clips

Let's hit the links:

  • WaPo recap and blog; WaTimes recap and blog.
  • GDub on "Today in Sidney Crosby bashing." [Puck Daddy]
  • Is Ted Leonsis talking about corporate America or Michael Nylander's contract? [Ted's Take]
  • For some there's "Five Hole: Tales of Hockey Erotica." For others, there's Habs Eyes on the Prize. [NY Times (h/t dezlboy)]
  • "The funniest part I think is the questioning of Cherry's credentials as a fountain of knowledge on hockey. Taking a look at his career he's basically Bruce Boudreau." And if Bruce Boudreau was given five minutes every week to spew jingoistic, xenophobic crap to an entire nation, it would be equally ridiculous. [PPP]
  • "Since 1996, every Stanley Cup champion has finished among the top five in the regular-season standings." The Caps had better hold on, eh? [About.com]
  • Yes, it's pretty much mid-March already, but one last reflection on Alex Ovechkin's fantastic February. [USA Today]
  • If you don't want to read career projections that "look a fair bit more optimistic for Crosby than for Ovechkin," don't click on this link. [Globe and Mail]
  • The Caps are Steve Holt. [Ms. Conduct h/t PD]
  • Luckily for AO, he has a day job that he's pretty good at. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Is a Michael Nylander buyout imminent? [TFP]
  • Remembering the garbage-in/garbage-out days of yore, on this date back in 2006 the Caps traded Jeff Friesen, traded for Kris Beech (ok, not exactly) and claimed Rico Fata off of waivers.
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Phil Housley, who had the lowest single season points per game of his career for the 1997-98 Caps.
