Thursday Caps Clips

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Jeff Schultz had mono this summer and lost 25 pounds, but is good to go now (which means it's fair game to joke about). [CI]
  • From eight place to the Finals to fifth place - buckle up for the Flyers roller coaster. [Masisak]
  • Ah, September. [Dump n' Chase]
  • A few Caps are among the top Calder candidates. [Hockey Independent]
  • Isn't it a little early for the haters to be burying Mike Green? [From the Rink]
  • Andrew Gordon answers your questions (and tells of his Brooks Laich-related dream). If he's as talented as he is verbose, the Caps are in good shape. [RMNB]
  • What if Alexander Semin took as many shots as Alex Ovechkin? (Note: interesting aspect of this comparison does not apply to 2010 playoff statistics.) [JtG]
  • Speaking of Ovi, was "The Goal" a miracle? (And if so, is he half way to sainthood?) [Hoffman]
  • 30 Caps in 30 Days: Keith Aucoin. [Red Line Station]
  • I was told there'd be no math on this exam. [RtR]
  • Marcus Johansson: "The Coaches said to me several times that they believe really hard in me and that I will take a regular spot." [hockeysverige.se via FanPost]
  • There AO goes, promoting the 2014 Winter Olympics again... [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • ... and he's off to school, apparently borrowing one of the kids' leather jackets. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Lisa Hillary's greatest hits. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • We know the Caps are tough. Here's a reminder that some of their fans are, too. [Singing From The Crease via Ted's Take]
  • The inaugural Charity Hockey Classic to benefit Inova Blood Donor Services is coming up a week from Saturday out at Kettler. Check it out. [CHC]
  • Finally, it's a big day for birthdays as Dany Sabourin turns 30, Ivan Majesky turns 34, Kevin Miller hits 45, Bobby Gould is 53 and Michel Belhumeur (he of the 0-29-4 record with a 5.32 GAA as a Cap) is 61. Happy happy to all.
