Your savory breakfast links:

● We all knew Tomas Vokoun wouldn't be back next year, but we didn't know where he'd end up or that the Caps would get something in return for him. Now we do. [Capitals, NHL.com, Puck Daddy, Dump 'n Chase, Capitals Voice, WashTimes (with more here), WaPo, DCEx, CSNW, ESPN, CBC, Empty Netters, The Goalie Guild, Backhand Shelf, PHT (and again), RtR, Caps Outsider]

○ The timeline of Tomas's tumultuous tenure. [RMNB]

● In yesterday's other unsurprising confirmation of what was already more or less known, Evgeny Kuznetsov has signed on to stick around the KHL for another couple of years. [WashTimes, WaPo, PHT]

○ Kuzya explains his decision. [RMNB]

○ Without Kuznetsov, the cupboard is certainly somewhat bare up front. [KOL]

● The day in year-end reviews:

Roman Hamrlik... [RMNB]

○ ... Brooks Laich... [Peerless]

○ ... Braden Holtby... [RtR]

○ ... and John Erskine. [CSNW]

● Finally, happy 28th birthday to KHL legend Jakub Klepis, happy 47th to Alfie Turcotte, and happy 52nd to Andre Hidi.
