Thursday Caps Clips

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Is Alex Ovechkin "just like" LeBron James? No? No. [CSN Washington]
  • AO on signing a lifetime deal: "To go on the ice till the end of my life deprived of drinking wine and smoking cigarettes? No, it's not for me." Great interview. [Alex Ovetjkin, with a second interview here]
  • Back to the future: Ovi skating for Dynamo. [SB Nation DC]
  • Less than half of (a very small sample of) Cheeseheads know who Alex Ovechkin is. [State of Hockey]
  • Braden Holtby mic'd up. [Caps365 (video)]
  • The Boss pens a mini-manifesto (minifesto?). Better iPhone connectivity at the Verizon Center? Oh, hell yeah. [Ted's Take]
  • Speaking of AmEx's newest board member/VC's newest janitor, the man has handed out three of the nine biggest contracts in NHL history. If he ends up batting .667 on 'em, we'll be pretty happy. [THN]
  • Three pressing personnel issues facing the Caps. [FCNP]
  • Vogs continues his look at 2004's Development Camp. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • What the Caps/Wiz joint ticket operations means to you. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Hopefully this is the last you see of Michal Neuvirth in a Bears uniform. [Hockey or Die]
  • A look at how the current Caps were built. [Musings of a Caps Fan]
  • Guess we missed this one initially, but ABC7 did a piece on Development Camp invitee Chris Bond last week. [ABC7]
  • Q&A with Bears/Stingrays goalies Jared DiMichiel. [Stack the Pads]
  • Sergei Fedorov won't be going to court after all. [Forbes]
  • Check out the Caps items up for auction - and, more importantly, the reason for the auction. [FanPost (charity)]
  • Self-promotion alert: someone cheated and voting was reset over at WTOP, so take a moment to go pull the lever for us, won't you? (And tell all your friends to do the same.) [WTOP]
  • Business is booming for our corporate overlords. [TechCrunch]
  • Finally, happy 42nd birthday to Brad Schlegel. I'm sorry, Calder Candidate Brad Schlegel.
