Your savory breakfast links:
● As the CBA negotiations (or lack thereof) drag on, many teams have cancelled their rookie camps. The Caps are not among them... yet. [CSNW]
● One of the guys who would be attending such a camp is Caps' prospect Connor Carrick, whose adjustment to his new team is going swimmingly so far. [Plymouth Canton Patch]
● Allentown, PA is making a push to become the "Best Minor Sports Town" competition. Reigning champ Hershey-Harrisburg (and its Washington-based parent clubs) might have something to say about that. [Morning Call]
● Finally, happy 46th birthday to Kevin Hatcher and happy 59th to Nelson Pyatt.
