Your savory breakfast links:

  • Experience: you usually need it to get it and can't often get it without it. And the Caps' D as presently constituted doesn't have it. [Peerless]
  • I've long waited for the day I'd read an interview with Alexander Semin in which he was translated as having said, "Yes, she sculpts my dumplings." [kp.ur via Google Translate, with a much better translation over at Alex Ovetjkin]
  • The stats say Chris Bourque, Alexandre Giroux and Keith Aucoin should be pretty decent NHLers. This concludes today's edition of "Why You Shouldn't Rely On Stats Alone In Formulating Your Opinions." [RMNB]
  • Sasha vs. Sasha: click through for the outstanding lead image, stay for the analysis. [Jumping the Glass]
  • The Prince of Wales engraving error hoax? Not so much a hoax. [Puck Daddy]
  • Eric Belanger has reportedly signed with someone, but he's too embarrassed waiting to announce who the lucky team is. [PHT]
  • Take note: a sports radio station talking pucks (with Steve Kolbe) in August with the you-know-who's opening their preseason in two days. [Lavar and Dukes]
  • An overview of the Caps' off-season. [TFP]
  • The Caps' second-line center spot, at least in the short-term, would seem likely to be filled by an asset already in the organization... but I certainly wouldn't pencil in Mathieu Perreault for it quite yet. [OFB]
  • What about Marcus Johansson for that gig? [Rink Rebel]
  • (You all know my bet for opening night 2C rhymes with Flomas Teischmann.)
  • Eric Fehr will be playing some puck for a good cause tonight. Why do I worry that he's going to hurt himself every time he steps on the ice? [Winnipeg Sun]
  • Ovechkinception. [YouTube]
  • NHL stars like Mike Green and Alex Ovechkin... in video games, I think. [FanShot]
  • Speaking of Ovechkin, Damien Cox and Gare Joyce's book on AO hits Canadian bookshelves on September 20 (but you can order yours online here). More importantly, Cox joins Japers' Rink Radio on Saturday to discuss the book and other topics.
  • Cody Eakin is ready to play some puck. [Prairie Post]
  • Could the Bears and Baby Pens play a January 1 game at CONSOL in conjunction with the Winter Classic? [PensBlog]
  • Bryan Helmer on concussions. [The Voice of Sport]
  • Sweet coupon alert - $20 of food and drink at Tony and Joe's for just $10. [SB Nation Team Pick]
  • Finally, happy 27th birthday to Jiri Novotny.
