Wednesday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The blue-and-gold Tre Kronor longship docked at Kettler Capitals Iceplex on Tuesday morning, returning the Caps' Viking centermen to North America for the 2010-2011 season. Welcome back Nicklas Backstrom, Marcus Johansson, and Anton Gustafsson. [@WashCaps, CapsSnaps (pics), OFB (pics)]
  • The Swedes joined several other vets and hopefuls on the ice, including Semyon Varlamov, Mike Knuble, Tomas Fleischmann, Matt Bradley, Jeff Schultz, John Erskine, Boyd Gordon, and D.J. King, plus an off-ice Jason Chimera with his son. Mike Vogel caught up with a few of the vets to find out how they spent their summers. [Caps365]
  • Speaking of Chimmer, he gets the "30 in 30" treatment. [Red Line Station]
  • Katie Carrera chatted with some of the prospects. AnGus needs to have a good camp.  Really, really needs.  Really. [Caps Insider]
  • And Corey Masisak has all your travel details. In case you ever need to get from somewhere near the border between Slovakia and the Czech Republic to Dulles in a hurry, flying out of Vienna is your best bet.  [Masisak]
  • Flash, David Steckel (oh hai there Stecks! We must have just missed seeing you on the ice...) and Slapshot took a field trip to Avalon Elementary. Aw. [Caps in the Community]
  • The Capitals are ramping up their youth hockey outreach.  Huzzah. [Vogs]
  • So.  How good is your power play? [Behind the Net]
  • And just how good is John Carlson? Keeping in mind that every peak has its valley. [Peerless]
  • Oh, Alex.  A snowboarding sheep? Never, ever change. [RMNB]
  • Getting to know Stingrays/Bears goalie prospect Jared DeMichiel. [Stack the Pads]
  • The season previews and predictions are starting to roll in. [The Hockey News]
  • Debating the Hart - and the panelists are finding it hard to make a case for anyone but the usual suspects. [THN]
  • It's not difficult to make a case for the tops of the projected scoring leaderboards. [TSN]
  • It takes all kinds - and your hockey friends are no different. [Jumping the Glass]
  • The sweater countdown continues. Onward to 40-49.  [Rock the Red]
  • Vote Weagle! Or vote Big Brown Bear With Very Large Claws And Eleven Calder Cups.  Your call. [Icethetics]
  • A Caps-focused look at the 'Canes. [KOL]
  • "Hockey Diaries: The Almost Season: 09-10 Wash Capitals' season" debuts on XM 204 and NHL.com from XM's studio in DC this Friday at 7 Eastern.  If only.  [mediachameleon]
  • Speaking of "Hockey Diaries," here are some prescient words from Knuble (look for similar cliches coming soon to a practice rink near you.) [mediachameleon]
