Your savory breakfast links:

  • Is the current roster the best team the Caps have had since the lockout? [CSN Washington]
  • Vogs clues us in on part of what made Calle Johansson such a special player. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Putting an end to the Antti Niemi clamoring with some good ol' common sense. [Peerless]
  • So firing pucks through football uprights is better or worse than the shootout to decide NHL games? [OFB]
  • The Top 10 NHLers who left for Russia includes a couple of familiar names. [The Hockey News]
  • Speaking of Russia, Alex Ovechkin is no Maria Sharapova (and reasonable minds can differ on just how Russian the latter really is), but he's doing alright for himself. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Eric Mestery quits hockey. Hopefully it was nothing we said. [Yahoo!]
  • A 35,000-foot view of the Southeast Division as it stands at the outset of August. [ESPN]
  • Filling the second-line center hole from within. [Jumping the Glass]
  • Mike Green will help to beautify a public school in Northwest in a couple of weeks. Presumably that means more than simply showing up with Brooks Laich in tow. [Capitals]
  • A look at what some of your favorite Caps and Bears have been up to this summer. [Flashy Glove Save]
  • Vote Weagle! [Icethetics]
  • Jose Theodore is still looking for work... and there's not much to be had. [LiR]
  • Former Cap (and NHL all-time iron man) Doug Jarvis has a new gig as an assistant in Boston. Time to man-up, Bruins - your new assistant played 964 consecutive games. [Bruins Blog]
  • Great stuff from Caps... well, I'm not sure exactly what Nate Ewell's title is these days, but his words are wise just the same. [Fischler Report (pdf) via Ted's Take]
  • Golf and the Caps - they go together like... nevermind. Anyway, time's running out on your chance to get $99 worth of fun and frustration on the links at Virginia Oaks for just $49. [SB Nation Team Pick]
  • A look back at former Caps goalie Wayne Stephenson, who passed away earlier this summer. [Capitals]
  • Finally, happy 34th birthday to Jeff Friesen, happy 47th to Mike Siltala and happy 52nd to Howard Walker.
