Thursday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Trade Mike Green! (Because selling low on a two-time Norris finalist who hasn't yet turned 26 is a good idea?) [The Hockey News]
  • Karl Alzner gives his thoughts on... well, you know. [FAN 960 (audio)]
  • Greg Wyshynski hits the nail on the head on LaVar and Dukes... [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • ... and some more fallout-related thoughts. [Chirps, FCP, Too Many Men on the Site, Mike Holden]
  • Ranking the world's goalie prospects. [The Goalie Guild (pdf)]
  • Speaking of the netminders, is it decision time? [Peerless]
  • Dreaming of what might have been. [Capitals Outsider]
  • Handing out the hardware for the Caps' Fight of the Year. [RtR]
  • A look at UFA Scott Hannan. [Puckhead]
  • Alex Ovechkin speaks (at and about Worlds). [TSN (video)]
  • Prospects playoff update (from Em):
    • Cody Eakin had two goals and one assist and was named third star of the game as the Kootenay Ice went up by two goals twice,  then gave four back on their way to a 5-4 overtime victory to extend their series lead to 3-1.  The Ed Chynoweth Cup will be in attendance on Friday in Portland when the Ice and the Winterhawks meet for Game Five.
    • Stan Galiev had a piece of all four Sea Dog goals (and folks took notice), including the game-winner scored by Ryan Tesink at the 19:16 mark of the second overtime period.  This game was officially the longest in QMJHL Finals history, and it is entirely possible that the horrid ice conditions in this 60-year old barn had something to do with the extended play. Regardless, Saint John has also secured a 3-1 series lead and the President's Cup will be at Harbour Station on Friday.  Y'know, just in case.
    • And don't forget Brett Flemming and his St. Mike's team, who also have a 3-2 series lead and will be playing at home tonight for the honor of raising the J. Ross Robertson Cup
  • Jesus saves and Mike Gartner scores on the rebound? [YorkRegion]
  • Finally, happy 52nd birthday to Dave Christian.
