  • Should we be concerned about Brendan Morrison, who "has been held out with a sore neck stemming from the hit in Buffalo"? [@cmasisak22]
  • Eric Duhatschek predicts the top 200 scorers for 2009-10 (neither Alex Ovechkin nor Sidney Crosby holds the top spot, but he's got much love for the Caps' Young Gun forwards, overall). [Globe and Mail]
  • Good stuff on Arturs Irbe and Semyon Varlamov. [Sporting News]

  • You'd be hard-pressed to rock any more red than this guy (and have we confirmed that Anton Gustafsson did indeed report to Hershey - we've seen him in a similar get-up). [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Indeed we do have that confirmation, via a first-hand account of yesterday's Bears practice. [Hershey Bears Hockey]
  • With the Redskins circling the bowl already (again), the Caps provide some positive sports vibe for the city (but not enough). [Washington Times]
  • Olie Kolzig was on The John Thompson Show to talk about hanging 'em up. [ESPN 980 (audio), Capitals Insider (partial transcript)]
