Friday Caps Clips: O Captain! My Captain!

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Chris Clark is "the healthiest [he's] been in two years" and thinks the Caps "could be five, 10 games better than last year." We'd all be thrilled with nine more wins... when they matter most. [Capitals Insider]
  • The boss thinks his team can - and will - be better too. [Ted's Take]
  • The odds makers aren't so sure, however. [BetOnline.com (possibly NSFW, if your employer doesn't dig you checking out gambling sites)]
  • Take it to the bank - Brendan Morrison will have a bounce-back season. [The Hockey News]
  • Single-game tickets go on sale Saturday, September 12 (and the promo schedule - complete with the Mike Green bobblehead - can be found here). [Capitals]
  • Alex Ovechkin will be at the NHL Store in Manhattan on September 9 to "personally ring up a limited number of lucky customers who are among the first to pre-order NHL 2K10 as well as go head-to-head with the finalist in a pre-determined contest in the Nintendo Wii version of the game." [NHL.com]
  • The Caps are your local attendance champs (well, not including the Nats... I think). [Bog]
  • NHL.com's fantasy guru tells a "die-hard Penguins fan" to pick AO over Sid and Geno with the first pick in his draft (and heaps praise on Alexander Semin). [NHL.com]
  • Last week we linked to a story on rookie camp invitee Ryan Jasinsky. Here's another one. [Vindy.com]
  • Finally, happy 57th birthday to former Caps bench boss Jim Schoenfeld. Thanks for filling in for Torts and losing Game 6, and be sure to blow out all the candles on your small ring-shaped cake of sweetened dough fried in deep fat.
