Wednesday Caps Clips

via the shoebox next to my desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Roman Hamrlik met with the local media yesterday and talked about his role as a seasoned veteran on a team that could certainly use another one. [Caps365 (video), CSN Washington (O'Halloran), CI (Carrera), KOL]
  • Now that Hamr's here, who sits? [CRtC]
  • Hamrlik's fellow countryman, Tomas Vokoun, isn't competitive, may or may not choke under pressure, and Karl Alzner really should've received an offer sheet from someone. [CBC (Friedman)]
  • Enough with the Alex Semin rumors, mmm'kay? [NHL.com (Hradek)]
  • Cody Eakin cops to not being in great shape last week. [CW (Whyno), DCEx (McNally)]
  • And speaking of not being in great shape (nice segue, eh?), check out what passes for hockey coverage in mid-July. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Moving right along, Jeff Halpern did a radio hit with LaVar and Chad. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Of all the big hitters to take up temporary residence in the visitor's locker room at Verizon Center, the Dalai Lama is certainly the most unexpected. [CTV via OFB]
  • DevCamp standout Garrett Haar is a great example of what happens when you plant seeds in non-traditional markets and let them grow. [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • Huge kudos to Hershey Bears beat writer Tim Leone for well-deserved recognition of his outstanding work.[OFB]
  • Finally, happy 61st birthday to Terry Murray, who played 74 games for the 1981-82 Caps and then coached 325 games for the team from January 15, 1990 (when he replaced his brother Bryan behind the bench) through January 27, 1994 (when he was replaced by Jim Schoenfeld after compiling a 163-134-28 record).
