Wednesday Caps Clips: More Numbers

Your savory breakfast links:

  • More depressing stats that basically boil down to "the Caps shoulda won" (and may not need much of a systemic change at all). [BtN]
  • Oh, and about Hal Gill and Josh Gorges shutting down Alex Ovechkin? Yeah, not so much. [mc79hockey]
  • Mike Green did a phoner on Elliot In The Morning yesterday. [EITM (audio), RMNB (transcription of the whole thing)]
  • Bruce Boudreau also did a couple of radio hits over the past couple of days. Really interesting listens. [The Fan 590, AM640 (h/t CapsFanSince1979)]
  • Steinz continues his mission to prove that the Caps are the pre-Cup Oilers incarnate... [Bog]
  • ... and he's not the only one making comparisons. [DCEx]
  • The players have Gabby's back. [DCEx]
  • Re-CAPSule: Brooks Laich. [Capitals]
  • Nicklas Backstrom, by the tens. [Peerless]
  • Gotta agree with Matheson - I don't think Alexander Semin is going anywhere. [Edmonton Journal]
  • Sergei Fedorov's old man dumps on the Caps' centers. [RMNB]
  • Worst. Year. Ever? [Steinberg]
  • Semyon Varlamov is likely going to be "the guy" for Russia at Worlds (if his equipment gets there); Ovechkin pees in a cup. [Examiner, Examiner]
  • Ready to buy that #15 Laich Team Canada jersey yet? [FanShot]
  • Steinz smakesdown Wilbon. Bravo. [Bog]
  • "Leads"? "Expects to win"? Huh? [Gazette]
  • The Boss hates losing. A lot. [Ted's Take]
  • "Is Mr. Ovechkin risking subconcussive, long-term brain damage [by celebrating goals the way he does]?" The WSJ should go back to not covering sports. [WSJ]
  • Hey, what have the Bears been up to? [Patriot-News]
  • Sure, I'll have a tall glass of Stefan Della Rovere Kool-Aid. [THN]
  • Uh oh... tell me he's not touching the Cup. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Grant Jennings.
