Friday Caps Clips

Your savory breakfast links:

  • (Hopefully) wrapping up Justdoesntcaregate, the spotlight turns to Alex Ovechkin and all those optional practices...  [WaPo (Hamilton)]
  • ... and it turns out that Mike Knuble has the backs of both Matt Bradley and Alexander Semin.  Now there's savvy veteran leadership... [CW (Whyno)]
  • ...not to mention there's a "curse" to be broken and a bit more golf to be played before the skates come out of summer hibernation. [CW (Whyno)]
  • Some of the Caps who are on-ice already are working under the watchful eye and unyielding metronome of power skating guru Wendy Marco. [Ashburn Today]
  • Don't look now but there'll be lots of hockey on your teevee soon.  Much of it featuring the Caps. [WashTimes (Whyno), WaPo, Puck Daddy]
  • Five excellent points to ponder as the season draws near. [Blonde Girl's Guide]
  • He's not your overweight lover MC. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • You're still a baller in our eyes, Joel Ward. [FanShot]
  • The American Hockey League has released its full 2011-2012 schedule.  Of note: a possible New Year's Eve date in Philadelphia between the Hershey Bears and the Adirondack Phantoms. [TheAHL.com]
  • A programming note: Japers' Rink Radio moves this week to its new permanent time of Mondays at 9 PM Eastern. We hope you can join us!
  • Be a dear and vote, won't you? [CBS Washington]
  • Finally, happy 46th birthday to David (A.) Jensen, former member of the "Diaper Line," whom the Caps acquired from Hartford in exchange for current assistant coach Dean Evason and Peter Sidorkiewicz.
