Your savory breakfast links:

  • Let's start off with something positive - Don Beaupre spent almost a third of his career between the pipes right here in DC and still considers himself a Capital first. The feeling's certainly mutual, sir. [BHS]
  • In today's episode of "He Said, He Said"...
  • In a move that smacks of maturity and responsible negotiation - or whatever the opposites of those things are - many of the NHLPA members are now donning ("non-NHLPA-sanctioned") hats with a very specific message for the Commish. [Puck Daddy, Sportsnet]
  • Meanwhile the man himself went on the record with the Winnipeg Free Press to say... well, nothing that surprising, but interesting nonetheless. [Wpg Free Press, Puck Daddy]
  • Casualties of the lockout, part 1: the All Star Game in Columbus is next on the chopping block if a deal doesn't get done soon. [Puck Daddy]

    • Bear tracks! [LD News]
    • Once a favorite sparring partner for many within the Bears organization, Matt Clackson has switched allegiances and brought his mitts to Hershey. [LD News]
    • A big reason why the Bears have sputtered to a sub-.500 start through 13 games? Offense, or more accurately the lack thereof. Minor detail. [THW]
