Thursday Caps Clips: Fedorov Wanted to Stay, But...

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Sergei Fedorov: ""To be honest, I wanted to sign a new contract with Washington. But the management did not offer me anything certain." And by "certain," he means "close to what I could earn in Russia." [Examiner.com]
  • Evgeni Malkin: "I don't know who the Capitals signed. But Fedorov and [Viktor] Kozlov are serious losses." I'll cut him some slack on not following the NHL transaction pages too closely, given what he has been otherwise occupied with. [Puck Daddy]
  • Vogs gives Brent Johnson a fitting send off. [Dump n' Chase]
  • George James Malik, however, doesn't ("the goaltender best known as 'Sid Abel's grandson' is a bit harsh for a guy who's 126th all-time in wins), but only because Johnny isn't a Wings fan. [Snapshots]
  • Johnson wasn't the Pens' first choice to back up Marc-Andre Fleury. Martin Gerber was. Seriously. [PensBurgh]
  • More from Mike Knuble's first trip to Kettler. [Capitals Insider]
  • Here's a good look at what the Bears roster might look like this fall. [Hershey Bears Hockey]
  • The Caps will remain on 1500 AM for the upcoming season. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Joe Finley's partner-in-crime got smacked down by UND, who suspended him for a minimum of two games, reduced his scholarship money, and sent him to counseling. Oh, and apparently "alcohol was involved" in the incident. You don't say. [Grand Forks HeraldStar Tribune and Puck Daddy's take on the incident]
  • In case you missed it, Dmitri Orlov will play in the KHL this season. [@dchesnokov]
  • The Caps have renewed their affiliation with South Carolina of the ECHL for 2009-10. [Capitals.com]
  • When the NHL selected the Flyers as the Bruins' New Year's Day opponent, they passed over at least three better choices, including the Caps. [New England Hockey Journal]
  • On this date back in 1981 the Caps traded forward Mark Lofthouse to Detroit for Al Jensen. Jensen had a franchise-best .644 winning percentage and is third among Caps goalies in career wins with 94.
  • Finally, Happy 40th Birthday to both Dmitri Khristich and Andrew Cassels.
