Tuesday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Craig Laughlin offers his thoughts on the Caps' roster going forward (spoiler alert: Eric Belanger is back, Brendan Morrison isn't, and Tomas Fleischmann... is a 30-goal scorer?). [CSN Washington (video)]
  • By my math, the Caps' top five 2010-11 cap hits (excluding Michael Nylander) will take up a bit more than half of the total cap space allotted to each team... and that's not necessarily a bad thing. [FanHouse]
  • A bit more on the Alex Ovechkin/Brooks Laich mini-kerfuffle and Semyon Varlamov's thoughts thereafter. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Speaking of Ovechkin, Scott Burnside takes a moment to kick him while he's down, which is always easiest, given the short distance one's foot has to travel. [ESPN]
  • Oh, and Ovi's got a dog (insert Alexander Semin joke here). [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • The Verizon Center is over-booked (at least for our liking) for the same reason we're all over-worked: gots to pay the bills. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Jose Theodore gets nominated for the King Clancy Trophy. [RtR]
  • Re-CAPSule: Scott Walker. [Capitals]
  • OFB's interns discuss Semin and Mike Gr- wait... OFB's interns? [OFB]
  • Pretty sweet (albeit pricey) piece of nostalgia. [OFB]
  • Sounds like Joel Broda doesn't think the Caps will sign him prior to the deadline for doing so, which is hardly surprising at this point. [Calgary Herald]
  • With the Draft just a month away, here are three mock drafts, two of which have the Caps looking for a physical defenseman. My bet is that the team goes a different direction. [NHL, NHL, NHL]
  • And speaking of 2010 Draft prospects, you knew Jarred Tinordi is the son of a former Cap Mark, is a big blueliner (6-5, 202), and is a US NTDP product, all of which had to place him squarely on George McPhee's radar. Now comes word that he might ditch Notre Dame (to which he had committed) and head to London (OHL) to play for Dale Hunter this fall. Hmm... [OHL Prospects]
  • Future Washington Wizard John Wall knows that D.C. is a "great city" with "great fans" and "a great hockey team." Great. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Finally, happy 53rd birthday to Robert Picard.
