Thursday Caps Clips

Daniil Sobchenko (#14) is congratulated by VladimirTarasenko (#10) and Dmitri Orlov (#9) during the 2011 IIHF World U20 Championship Group B game between Canada and Russia on December 26 2010 at HSBC Arena in Buffalo New York. Sobchenko was one of 43 fatalities in yesterday's horrific plane crash.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • You'd be hard-pressed to find a hockey team anywhere in the world that wasn't touched by yesterday's tragedy outside of Yaroslavl, Russia, and the Caps are certainly among those devastated by the news. [WashTimes (Whyno), CI (Carrera), CW (Whyno), Rink Rebel, @rabiesmalin, Alex Ovetjkin, Station Nation, NHL.com (Rosen)]
  • In lighter news, the Caps have announced their rookie camp roster and schedule (and kudos to the team for listing its free agent invitees this time around). [Capitals, CW (Whyno)]
  • And in even lighter news, Rod Langway and Craig Laughlin drafted their respective squads for the upcoming alumni game. Very cool. [FanPost]
  • Oh, and The Secretary of Defense thinks the Caps are close. [CSN Washington (Hughes)]
  • Could it be that health - and not less-tangible notions of "caring" or "focus" - is the key to a productive Alexander Semin? [Peerless]
  • Looking ahead to the first season of Brooks Laich's big contract. [CRtC]
  • Questions abound about the 2011-12 Caps. Unfortunately, we have to wait until next spring to get answers. [KK (Spector)]
  • More on Tomas Vokoun's decision to come to Washington... [On Frozen Pond]
  • ... and not Motown. [PHT]
  • John Carlson and baseball - now there's a nice pairing. [Caps News Network]
  • Notes from Caps Media Fantasy Camp. [Frankovic]
  • We had nearly 100 RSVPs in our first full day of promoting our Caps Convention After Party, but we expect a much bigger crowd, so get your tickets now and tell your friends. Surprises to come...
  • Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Marco Sturm (and thanks for those two goals in 27 games).
