Tuesday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • John Carlson plays healthy. John Carlson plays hurt. John Carlson just plays. [CW (Whyno)]
  • Future of the Franchise: Carlson and Karl Alzner. [CSN Washington (Raby)]
  • Does Alex Ovechkin "have what it takes?" [Peerless]
  • Why you shouldn't expect Scott Hannan to be back. [CRtC]
  • A good collection of the autopsy pixels. [CSN Washington]
  • As we've noted in this space before, this year's failures are way bigger than any one person (or two people). [Sports Central]
  • Jeremy Roenick on the Country Club Caps. [CSN Washington (video)]
  • Handing out the Caps Vezina (no surprise here). [RtR]
  • Is watching AO get stuffed on a breakaway while wearing another team's colors easier to take than when he's doing it for the Caps? Maybe a little bit. [Alex Ovetjkin (with more from Ovi at RMNB)]
  • In prospect playoff news (courtesy Em), the Saint John Sea Dogs dropped five unanswered goals on the Gatineau Olympiques to take a two games to one lead in the Q Finals. Shots were 35-17 in the Sea Dogs' favor. Stan Galiev had one assist, plus-1 in this game, and in 16 playoff games so far this season, is 9-12-21, plus-5.  The Dogs and the 'Piques meet again Wednesday night.
  • New (to me) blog alert: News from the Nosebleeds joins the Caps blogosphere.
  • Finally, on this date back in 2002, Ron Wilson was relieved of his duties behind the Caps' bench after missing the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. Said George McPhee at the time, "I didn't believe it, that these things had to happen, but I believe it now, that at some point the players need a new message."
