Friday Caps Clips

Martin Rose

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Roster ruminations, the Captain's fractured foot, and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Sayonara, season. With the gear stowed and the players headed for their cottages and dachas, there's not much left to do besides ponder lessons learned and read the tea-leaved future:
  • Stability behind the bench and a familiar playbook in place will allow the players to train with confidence and purpose this summer. It will also allow the front office to work on shaping the roster with confidence and purpose. [WaPo]
  • Speaking of Alex, the single game he was able to play for Team Russia went just about as well for his team as Game Seven against the Rangers did... [IIHF, RMNB, Puck Daddy]
  • "Hindsight is 20/20 and looking back now, jeez, if I could’ve done it in January and been good to go by mid-February, late February, yeah I would’ve done it." Brooks Laich reflects on his season on the sidelines. [WashTimes]
  • Another question for next year - whither Tom Wilson? [CSNW, WashTimes]
  • If John Tortorella would just come back here, Adam Oates would totally bite his legs off. [CSNW, Eye on Hockey]
  • Finally, best wishes to Stephen Whyno, who has announced he's leaving the Washington Times' Caps beat to become a national reporter for the Canadian Press. [@SWhyno]
