Thursday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Congratulations are in order for a bunch of other guys after a remarkably Caps-free NHL Awards ceremony. [RMNB]
  • Oh, and congrats to John Carlson, who joined the Calder nominees on the 2010-2011 All-Rookie Team, and to Alex Ovechkin, named to the All-Star second team. Mike Green's charitable work was a runner-up in Foundation Award voting. [Capitals, CI (Carrera)]
  • Here's how all the voting went down. [Puck Daddy]
  • Now on to Minneapolis and preparation for Friday's 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
    • An interview with the Caps' scoutmeister, Ross Mahoney, and a member of his Euro scouting staff. [FanPost]
    • Recent Caps' drafts have had their successes... [WashTimes (Whyno)]
    • ...and their "Where are they now?" moments. [CSN (O'Halloran)]
    • Speaking of which, a re-ranking of the 2009 draft has Marcus Johansson moving up 15 spots to #9. [TSN.ca]
    • Looking for some mock drafts?  Here's a couple. [USA Today, Peerless]
    • Maybe someday the draft will come to DC. [DCExaminer (McNally)]
  • Dmitri Orlov has a plan, and he's sticking to it. [RMNB]
  • Ten by ten by Eric Fehr. [Peerless]
  • Don't forget the RFAs and UFAs! Who should stay, who should go, who should be pursued? [KoL]
  • Finally, North America's (second-) favorite pending free agent turns 28 today. Happy birthday, Brooks Laich.
