Monday Caps Clips: August Ends

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • NHL.com's "30 in 30" series takes a look at the Caps [NHL.com]
  • R.I.P., Senator. [Ted's Take]
  • Eric McErlain weighs in on the captaincy debate, which is great in and of itself, but as it foreshadows a rejuvenated Off Wing Opinion, we all stand to win. [Off Wing Opinion]
  • If you can never get enough of the feel-good story that is Brian Pothier's comeback, here's another re-telling. [NHL.com]
  • To no one's surprise, Alex Ovechkin is skating on a line with Alexander Semin and Sergei Fedorov at Russia's Olympic Camp... and goofing around [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • AO won't be cookin' in NYC after all (great short interview, btw, with a killer punchline). [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Mike Green continues to be the only player on earth not to get the slightest pass for playing hurt/sick in the playoffs, "[b]ut don't forget his 73 points last season." Presumably, though, it's acceptable to forget his 31 goals, plus-24 rating and Norris nomination. [NHL.com]
  • LeBrun and Burnside have Green on the outside looking in for Vancouver. [ESPN.com]
  • The van is probably the most normal thing about living next to Slapshot. [Nektarios]
  • Speaking of rides, another Caps plate. [Simply Sensational]
  • Twenty years ago today, former Cap Rick Green retired (for the first time).  With 31 goals and 127 assists, he's the team's all-time leader in points by a defenseman named Green, but that's probably not likely to last much longer.
