Thursday Caps Clips

Anton Gustafsson, via Caps in Pictures

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Just three years after drafting him, the Caps are severing ties with 2008 first round pick Anton Gustafsson. [WashTimes (Whyno), CI (Carrera)]
  • Reasonable minds can differ as to when this team's prime years to compete start (or started), but most everyone would agree that it's go-time now. [Peerless]
  • Joel Ward called in to The Sports Reporters yesterday. [ESPN 980 (audio)]
  • Where Ward and the other new guys fit in. [RLD Hockey]
  • If you're Mathieu Perreault's agent among those who think that the NHL's "takeaway" stat has any relevance, this one's for you. [TSN (Cullen)]
  • John Carlson did some good yesterday. [Capitals Overtime]
  • Dmitry Orlov speaks... on speaking. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Timo Helbling.
