Your savory breakfast links:

Matt Hendricks and Mike Knuble are outstanding human beings (not that you didn't already know that). [Dump 'n Chase]

● Yesterday in year-end reviews:

○ ...The forwards, part 2... [WaPo]

○ ... Nicklas Backstrom... [CSNW]

○ ... Joel Ward... [RtR]

○ ... and Troy Brouwer. [RMNB, with this editor's note: I sure am enjoying these reviews]

● What's the Caps' identity these days? [WaPo]

Tomas Vokoun is only interested in playing in North America, says his North American agent. [WashTimes]

● Speaking of Vokoun, he sat down for a one-on-one with Mike Vogel on his way out of town. [Caps365 (video)]

Karl Alzner and Alex Ovechkin. One of them tweeted pics of his girlfriend on the clay at Roland Garros, the other pics of his dogs in purple bowties. Guess who's who. [SB Nation DC, NBC4 Washington, and with more on how the Caps are spending their respective summers, hit up RtR]

● Three awesomely terrible goals-against. Relive them now! [KOL]

● If you would like to meet and/or greet Brooks Laich, this one's for you. [RtR]

● The quest for a second straight Memorial Cup is over for Stanislav Galiev and the Saint John Sea Dogs, as they fell 7-4 to the host Shawinigan Cataractes, who will face the London Knights on Sunday in the Final. Stas can look back on a stellar junior career as he prepares to turn pro and begin dishing it out in the Caps' organization. [Station Nation, Buzzing the Net]

● Finally, happy 36th birthday to Matt Herr (collegiate teammate of Knuble, incidentally) and happy 53rd to Pat Riggin.
