Friday Caps Clips: A Line in the Sand

Justin K. Aller

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Another two weeks are knocked off the calendar, keeping up with the boys, some World Juniors stuff, and that's about it.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The latest labor-related news, non-news and assorted whatnot:
    • The NHL has officially cancelled games through January 14, which is the last step to the end of the plank, you'd think. [Puck Daddy, WaPo, CSNW, WashTimes]
    • What more is there to say? A lot, apparently. Like the PA is just dyin' to get back to the negotiating table... [ESPN]
    • ... but if the owners don't budge, there may not be a season, per Captain Obvious Troy Brouwer. [CSNW]
    • Bill Daly speaks. [Ottawa Sun]
    • A handful of Caps (and an alum) will be playing some shinny out at Kettler later this morning (or earlier this morning, by the time most of you read this). [@JohnCarlson74 (and did I mention the very special ringer?)]
    • Clearly, this hasn't been a typical holiday season for these NHLers. [CSNW, WaPo]
    • Matt Hendricks has made great use of his time off. [WaPo, WashTimes]
    • The "local businesses are struggling" story is always easy lockout content. [TSN]
    • Get ready for sign-and-trades. Yawn. [USA Today]
    • Oh, the absurdity of it all. [Puck Daddy]
    • And speaking of absurdity, how about some new mediators? [Sporting News]
  • Alex Ovechkin has a new Nike ad. #needsmorehotstick [DC Sports Bog]
  • A look back on some of the year's best stories (with a somewhat surreal lead image). [SI]
  • Filip Forsberg will captain the defending champs at the World Juniors... [PHT]
  • ... and looked good in a pre-tourney tune-up (Riley Barber less so). [Puck Prospectus]
  • An update on prospect Thomas Di Pauli. [THW]
  • Happy 34th birthday to Petr Sykora (yes, that one) and happy [redacted] birthday to our BFF Kellie Cowan.
  • Finally, vote. For us. Now. Please. [WaPo]
