Monday Caps Clips: Welcome to the Hall

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals News and Notes: Oates enters the Hall in the shadow of failing CBA negotiations, Hershey drops a pair and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Craving more lockout coverage hockey chatter? Catch up on all of the weekend's news here and here.
  • It's time to celebrate, as after a weekend of festivities (and almost a decade of waiting), Caps' coach Adam Oates will officially be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame tonight. Congrats, sir. [CBC, Dump 'n Chase, WaPo, Wash Times, ESPN, NHL.com, PHT]
    • Video and pics abound of Oates and Co. getting their Hall of Fame jackets and participating in the Legends Classic [Caps (and again, with plenty more at Caps OT), HHOF]
  • Speaking of the Hall of Fame Induction ceremony, this year's takes place beneath a cloud of labor uncertainty... which begs the question, should Gary Bettman attend? [SLAM, Sporting News]
  • And speaking of Bettman and the ongoing lockout, things are going downhill. Fast. Again. Shock. [Kukla, RDS Google translate), ESPN, TSN, SLAM, SI.com, Sportsnet, CBC]
  • Despite a win over Wilkes-Barre on Friday, fifth-place Hershey remains in fifth place thanks to back-to-back losses to St. Johns and Portland over the weekend. [Stuccio, SHOE, Patriot-News (and again), LD News]
  • One-on-one with Braden Holtby (remember him?) [Caps365]
    • Check out Braden's sharp new Caps mask, which unfortunately will likely remain sharp and NHL-unblemished for the time being. [DAVEART, RMNB]
  • In cheerier news, the Reading Royals rode a 32-save win by Brandon Anderson to first place in the Atlantic Division. In less cheery news, those jerseys... yikes. [Caps Outsider]
  • Patrick Wey wins a Holy War. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 50th birthday to Mark Hunter.
