Your savory breakfast links:

  • All defensemen, all the time in this week's Japers' Rink Mailbag. Keep those questions coming - you ask, we answer! [Rink]
  • News and notes from yesterday's practice out at Kettler:
  • Your Capitals Minute for today. [Capitals Voice]
  • Alex Ovechkin is doing his part (and then some) so far this season - so where's his team? [THW]
  • Looking ahead to next summer and the potential UFAs who could be sticking with their current teams. [Spectors Hockey]
  • One of those names is settling in quite nicely with the Caps and, so far, has been better than advertised. [THW]
  • It's been a busy time between the pipes for the Caps and their minor league affiliates. [Patriot-News]
  • Living and dying on the power play - especially doing the latter - isn't going to help you move up in power rankings. [SB Nation]
  • And in power rankings of a different sort, reflecting on a fairly eventful week for Caps' GM George McPhee. [Puck Daddy]
  • Radio hits a-plenty:
  • Most players take naps between morning skate and the game; Steve Oleksy is not most players. [WaPo]
  • Finally, happy 52nd birthday to Chris Valentine.
