Your slightly unsavory breakfast links:

● The Good: John Carlson will be patrolling the Caps' blueline for years to come. Just wish we could say it would include this year.

● The Badass: Brooks Laich and the art of the deal. [WaPo, WashTimes (with audio), CSNW, SB Nation DC, DSP]

● The Ugly: Michal Neuvirth appears to be packing for a trip. Along with everyone else in the National Hockey League. [@MNeuvirth30, WaPo, CSNW]

● Notes and assorted whatnot from one last day out at Kettler:

○ Looky ... new guys! [Caps365 video (Joey Crabb, Jack Hillen)]

John Carlson, Karl Alzner, Wojtek Wolski and Troy Brouwer all attended the NHLPA meetings in New York. [WashTimes]

○ The Caps completed their pre-lockout checklist by assigning all their AHL-eligible players to Hershey. Dmitry Orlov and Braden Holtby will be suiting up for the Bears to start the season. [@WashCaps, NHL.com, WashTimes, LDN]

○ Speaking of which, the Bears have released their 2012 training camp schedule. [@TheHersheyBears]

○ One more item - The Bears will play the Norfolk Admirals at the Verizon Center on December 6. If you're interested in attending, take a look here and let your voice be heard. [FanShot]

● Finally, Front Page in Ballston is hosting a "Hooray It's a New Season Boo It's a Lockout"-themed shindig this evening, starting around 7:00pm. Raise your glass, yo. [@FrontPageVA]
