Your savory breakfast links:

  • Just who are the Caps anyway? [Peerless]
  • Looking back at John Carlson's season. [CI (Carrera), and, as an FYI, our Carlson Rink Wrap drops at 11 this morning]
  • So part of the justification for a theoretical Mike Green trade is that the Caps' defense is too slow? That makes sense. [Edmonton Journal]
  • More thought-out analysis of a possible Green trade. [DCEx (McNally)]
  • Trying to read George McPhee's tea leaves regarding his bench boss. [News from the Nosebleeds]
  • The World Championships end with Alex Ovechkin failing to score a goal or register an assist, which is somewhat fitting, since most observers probably viewed his trip to Bratislava as pointless to begin with. [RMNB, RtR, SB Nation DC]
  • Thoughts on Derek Boogaard 's passing and some of the repercussions. [Ross Hollebon]
  • Prospect playoff updates (from Em):
    • Brett Flemming and the St. Michael's Majors advance to the Memorial Cup tournament but they will have to do so without the OHL title in hand.  They fell 3-2 in overtime to the Owen Sound Attack.  Brett's final playoffs stats: 20 games, one goal, 12 assists, plus-7 rating.
    • It took two overtime periods and just over four hours for Stan Galiev and the Saint John Sea Dogs to claim the QMJHL championship and hoist the President's Cup.  Stan had a beauty first goal of the game plus an assist on the GTG with only :23 left in the third period. With 10 goals and 17 assists in 19 games for a total of 27 points, he is tied with Cody Eakin for total post-season points, and had a plus-8 rating to Cody's plus-9.
    • And yes, this means the Capitals have three prospects in this year's Memorial Cup tournament, two of them with titles.  Congratulations and good luck to all!
  • Finally, happy 27th birthday to Tomas Fleischmann, whom we're all looking forward to seeing back on the ice as soon as possible.
