Tuesday Caps Clips

D.J. King of the Washington Capitals shoots during warmup before game action at the Air Canada Centre against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Tomas Vokoun is looking forward to "a chance to stand on the other side of the ice and have, at minimum, as good a team as the other guy has." Hopefully that chance continues deep into the spring. [CI (Applebaum)]
  • Vogs chats with Vokoun's Czech mate, Michal Neuvirth. [Caps365 (video)]
  • Alex Ovechkin speaks on a variety of topics and non-issues, including his culpability for Sidney Crosby's injury, his gut and a couple of Russian goalies with new teams. [Puck Daddy, Alex Ovetjkin, and more on the man's middle at DC Sports Bog]
  • Oh, and he's also apparently rapping. [DC Sports Bog, Capital Games, Alex Ovetjkin]
  • When history and statistics say one thing and eyes say another... well, we'll just have to see which is right. [RtR]
  • Of course, scoring 50 doesn't really matter all that much anyway. [Peerless]
  • It's a Jason Chimera day for Jim Matheson. [Gazette, Edmonton Journal]
  • There hasn't been much change in the top-eight in the Eastern Conference lately, and that's perhaps unlikely to change in the near future. [Eye On Hockey]
  • Big-time season preview over at KOL that boils down to "anything less than a championship and the Caps’ world could very well be destroyed." Like Alderaan? [KOL]
  • Somewhat less dramatically (and more mathematically), projections for a couple of Caps youngsters. [ESPN ($)]
  • D.J. King is doing all he can do to be ready for whatever comes his way this season. [CI (El-Bashir)]
  • What does the immediate future hold for Matt Hendricks? [RtR]
  • Joe Beninati talks Caps with a Calgary radio station. [FAN 960 (audio)]
  • Four Caps make the top-20 of Yahoo! Fantasy Hockey's top-100 players list. Now that's what I call a fantasy. [Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of fantasy, are there really a dozen better options down the middle than Nicklas Backstrom? [NHL.com (Kubeta)]
  • And here's our take (Fehr and Balanced's take, actually) on the Caps' fantasy prospects. [Fantasy Hockey Scouts, whose 2011-12 guide can be purchased here]
  • Ovi: "Last year we won fair and square, but then the other team had important people, so it was difficult to argue the result." No, he's not talking about the Tampa series. [The Moscow News]
  • George McPhee: Off-Season Champion. [RLD]
  • Thoughts on Club Scarlet. [THW (h/t Puck Daddy)]
  • Cody Eakin is being showcased. [Upper Deck (story, pic), NHLPA]
  • I'm getting tired of telling you to do it, you're getting tired of doing it... but just vote anyway. [CBS Washington]
  • Finally, "you know you're a Caps fan if you..." [FanShot]
