via Caps Snaps

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Today's schedule: Group C on the ice at 10am for practice and drills, scrimmage between Groups A & B at noon. [Caps Today]
  • Recaps of yesterday's scrimmage and other notes. [Dump 'n Chase, CI, OFB, Caps365 (video here, here and here), CI]
  • Former NHL GM Craig Button: "I can guarantee you Michal Neuvirth and Semyon Varlamov can't win without a great defense." Yeah, there's more to the quote that adds context, but this'll get you to click through. [NHL]
  • With Varly, it's all about his health. [Masisak]
  • A look at Neuvirth's new mask. [Caps Snaps]
  • Karl Alzner's time is now. [Masisak]
  • Alex Ovechkin has had his fun and is now all about business. [Bog]
  • Speaking of AO, here's another excerpt from the forthcoming biography of him (you may have heard about it). [Scribd]
  • And Ovi... at center? [WaPo]
  • Plenty of great photos from camp. [Caps Snaps, Tic Tac Toe Hockey (and again and again), Caps Girl, dfndr13, IRockTheRed (and again)]
  • The Caps media guide is available online, so print it out on that fancy color printer at work when you get a chance. [Capitals (.pdf)]
  • AO and Mike Green might not be where they are today if not for a couple of guys who are back with the organization after some time away. Alright, that's over-selling it, but check out the piece anyway. [Caps365 (video)]
  • What to watch for on October's schedule. [RtR]
  • John Carlson, Alzner and GVT. [Insider2]
  • Speaking of the kids, no contending team will rely more heavily on youth than the Caps. [SI]
  • Marcus Johansson is adjusting. [TBD]
  • Welcoming a trio of Caps to the Twitterverse. [RtR]
  • Mike Knuble ranks a teammate as the NHL's fastest skater. [FanShot]
  • 30 in 30: Brooks Laich. [Red Line Station]
  • Previewing Matt Bradley's season. [Peerless]
  • A fantasy-focused look at the Caps. [OFB]
  • Our favorite goalie-and-Bears-centric blog looks at camp so far. [Stack the Pads]
  • Back in Russia, Dmitry Orlov's season is off to a good start. [Russian Prospect]
  • Five burning Southeast questions. [Sports Network]
  • A reminder that not all player moves are made in July and February. [Peerless]
  • A look at Caps nicknames. [Blonde Girl's Guide]
  • That Ovi - always thinking about the children. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Former Cap prospect Stefan Della Rovere is making friends in St. Loo. [True Hockey]
  • Want cheap Nats tickets for this weekend? Of course you don't. I mean do. You do. [SB Nation Team Pick]
  • Speaking of tickets, just a reminder that the Rink Rat Ticket Exchange (with which we're not affiliated, but which we think is pretty cool) still exists.
  • This is bizarre. Apparently the Australian Rules Football Grand Final is on Saturday, per the website. Hey, wait a second... inspect the background image on the site and... is that Eric Fehr? I'm at a loss.
  • Finally, here's wishing a very happy 28th birthday to the one and only Brett Leonhardt.
