Sunday Caps Clips

Your savory Labor Day Sunday links:

  • Where to begin?  Where it began, of course.  Damien Cox takes his shot at cap-circumventing contracts and the "outlaw owners" who love them, and works some serious contortions to drag Alex Ovechkin and Caps owner Ted Leonsis into the morass. [Toronto Star]
  • Uncle Ted is having none of that. [Ted's Take]
  • Say, Damien doesn't happen to have a book coming out soon, right?  A book about a famous and well-compensated hockey player, whose boss has Google alerts and a Twitter account and a restless blog army at the ready?  Oh wait.  He does?  Exactly. [ProHockeyTalk]
  • This may not have been the most effective sales strategy ever. [@Mastro72]
  • Moving on, the rewind function on Kevin Bryant's DVR comes in for more abuse as he turns the telescope around and looks at how goals are scored ... on the Caps' netminders.  First up is Semyon Varlamov. [Jumping the Glass]
  • Hey Varly, can we have a lift? [@dchesnokov]
  • "If there is an emerging concept with respect to the most important ingredient in a Stanley Cup winner in the past few years, it is that a winner needs a solid top-four blue-line crew."  [Peerless]
  • Fun with numbers:
    • Those 70's sweaters [Rock the Red]
    • Hockey's best players, by the numbers. For example, AO rocks the number 8 harder than Cam Neely, Igor Larionov, or Teemu Selanne. Fact. [NHL.com]
    • 30 Caps in 30 Days - The Jay Beagle edition [Red Line Station]
  • Getting to know Bugsy Watson.  Suddenly a gameday pizza in Old Town sounds like a great idea. Do you think they have WiFi?  [Capitals Gains]
  • Meet the hockey player who got in a fight with Nyjer Morgan. [Half Smokes]
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Mark Ferner.
