via the shoebox next to JP's desk

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Former Caps goaltending coach Arturs Irbe explains how he and the organization came to a parting of the ways. [CI (Malamud), RMNB, Alex Ovetjkin, PHT]
  • What's better than a "making of" Bauer skate commercial video featuring Nicklas Backstrom? A "making of" Bauer skate commercial video featuring Nicklas Backstrom with Hungarian subtitles, that's what.  Elszédülök!  [Bauer Hockey via Marczi Skate via YouTube]
  • Now that we've mentioned Bauer Hockey... [Alex Ovetjkin
  • But is Bauer the only possible suitor? [Kukla's Korner]
  • Getting to know ... Ryan Potulny. Yes, he's most likely slotted for Hershey, but he might just be a reasonable call-up as well. [Flyers Faithful]
  • Quiz time! Who will be the Caps' second most prolific shooter this season? Hint: Think "contract year." [Caps Outsider]
  • Here's another excerpt from @TedStarkey's forthcoming book "Transition Game", plus an interview with the author. [Frankovic]
  • Some preseason media moves to get excited about. [Ross Hollebon's Sports Pub]
  • Speaking of which, is Jeff Halpern an upgrade over Boyd Gordon? [CRtC]
  • Oh hey there Boston Bruins. Why do you keep looking over your shoulder like that? [NESN]
  • Finally, happy 35th birthday to Jeff Friesen, happy 48th to Mike Siltala and happy 53rd to Howard Walker.
