Thursday Caps Clips

Your savory head-of-the-year breakfast links:

  • In what should be celebrated as an annual holiday by all Caps fans, today marks the 28th anniversary of the Caps trading Ryan Walter and Rick Green to Montreal for Rod Langway, Craig Laughlin, Doug Jarvis and Brian Engblom. Read up, young 'uns.
  • Back to the here-and-now, the guys out at Kettler chat about being back. [Caps365 (video, where the Varly intro never gets old)]
  • Catching up with Mike Knuble. [CSN Washington]
  • Bruce Boudreau had this to say of Tomas Fleischmann trade rumors: "I think you can faithfully put all of them to bed." Sweet dreams! [SportingNews (with Bruce on an Eric Belanger deal as well)]
  • If some of you find yourselves needing some more uplifting news after reading that last bullet, here it is: "Comcast SportsNet, the local rights-holder for both the Wizards and the Caps, will produce all its regular-season games for both teams in HD this season." Welcome to 2010. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • A Caps-centric look at Los Diablos... [Masisak]
  • ... and a glimpse at the defending Eastern Conference Champs. [KOL]
  • If the over/under for John Erskine's 2010-11 NHL games played is set at 56, which are you taking? [Peerless]
  • Five huge questions facing the Caps (actual hugeness of questions may vary). [Turner Sports Desk]
  • Bravo Lifetime has Tim Gunn; the Caps blogosphere has Kevin Bryant. [JtG]
  • Flash and David Steckel go back to school (and for some reason this story gets its third consecutive day of coverage here). [Gazette]
  • Joe Corvo, reflecting on his tenure as a Cap: "Really, the whole Washington situation was such a short period of time where it almost feels like I was never there." It pretty much looked that way, too, Joe. [ESPN]
  • Olie Kolzig vs. Dale Hunter: who owns the 30's? [RtR]
  • Because a FlipVideo of someone's TV is a bit crude, Alex Ovechkin's Capital One ad in HD. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Dmitri Orlov: "I’m an offensive defenseman. But even if I like joining the rush, shooting and jumping into opportunities, I surely don’t forget about the defense." Talk is - how you say - cheap? Let's hope another year in Russia helps his game at both ends of the rink. [The Hockey News]
  • 30 in 30... Sean Collins? [Red Line Station]
  • "The Hanged Man isn’t necessarily a 'bad news' kind of card when face-up. The man is hanging by his foot, not his neck, so it’s not like he’s being executed here." Awesomes. [Capital Spirit]
  • Metro is making no friends among the Caps faithful (if it had any remaining at this point, that is). [Peerless]
  • As the season nears, Bryan Helmer is still in search of a deal. [TVOS]
  • Finally, happy 44th birthday to Kevin Hatcher, and happy 57th to Nelson Pyatt.
