Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps retained the rights to three draft picks and let another four go yesterday. No surprises, but it's probably not too often that you see a team take a pass on trying develop one of their own draft picks with great playoff beard potential who led the WHL in goals the season after being picked. [Capitals]
  • A well-deserved honor is going to be bestowed upon a Caps legend when long-time (and original) radio play-by-play voice Ron Weber is presented with the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award for outstanding contributions as a hockey broadcaster as part of hockey's Hall of Fame induction ceremonies this coming fall. [Capitals, Vogs, D.C. Sports Bog, CI, OFB, Frankovic, DCEx]
  • Mathieu Perreault gets some press en français. [RDS via Google Translate]
  • And Chris Bourque also gets the hometown treatment. [Salem News]
  • Reviewing the Caps' 2005 draft, five years out. Spoiler alert: it sucked. [Hockey's Future]
  • The Leftovers, by the tens. [Peerless]
  • A look back at John Carlson's 2009-10. [Live In Red]
  • A hamburger dedicated to Mike Green? Your punchlines in the comments. [WaPo]
  • Finally, you are all cordially invited to join fans and writers of SBN's D.C.-based blogs (and perhaps a celeb or two) for fun and free stuff next Monday night at Iron Horse Tap Room (a personal fave). See you there. [SB Nation]
