Wednesday Caps Clips

"Oh, c'mon... just try to stay mad at l'il ol' me."

Your savory breakfast links:

● Nearly a year to the day after Matt Bradley speaking his mind sent the hockey world into a tizzy, Michal Neuvirth's blunt answers regarding some teammates (current and former) and a former coach provided similar mid-summer fodder. Ah, August. [CSNW (video), WashTimes, NBC4 Washington, Sportsnet, The Goalie Guild, Sporting News, Backhand Shelf, Eye On Hockey, PHT, Puckhead]

Jason Chimera is all rainbows and lollipops about the labor sitch. [QMI]

Adam Oates is on a panel of NHL Illuminati "discussing the nuances of what constitutes a penalty and what does not." (Hopefully he'll successfully push to retroactively legalize high-sticking double-minors in the final thirty seconds of playoff games.) [CSNW]

● How many Caps are among the NHL's top-50 players? And how many former Caps are? [KK]

● A little nugget that might have slipped by if you weren't paying attention: "The Capitals have already sold out every game for next season." [Ted's Take]

● Remembering Ron Weber's last call... [Capitals Voice]

● ... the summer the Caps were saved... [SB Nation DC]

● ... and Olie Kolzig, thespian. [Backhand Shelf]

● Finally, happy 48th birthday to Dean Evason.
