Saturday Caps Clips

USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Reading Royals' championship party continues, Jeff Schultz's trade request and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • More on that whole pesky trade request from Jeff Schultz... because trading a 6'7" defenseman who has been a healthy scratch since March 31 was going to be so easy as it is. [PHT, THW]
  • Player report cards:
  • The Caps have a talented core and some decent complementary players. What they may lack is winning experience and some fancy jewelry-wearers in the locker room. [CSNW]
  • ...or they could just blow up that talented core. [THN]
  • Why can't Canada win the Stanley Cup? Forget about Canada, Nate Silver, use those numbers of yours to tell us why the Caps can't win one! [NYTimes]
  • There ain't no party like a Reading Royal party 'cause a Reading Royal party don't stop. And occasionally features rapping goalies. [Caps Outsider, Puck Daddy]
  • Speaking of Reading, Royals forward and Caps prospect Stanislav Galiev might have ended the year on a memorable note, but it wasn't exactly a memorable year overall for him. [ESPN]
  • If you had an Eric Fehr tally taking on a goal from one of the best in the biz in Pavel Datsyuk for TSN's Play of the Year... go buy a lottery ticket. If not, just go vote. [Caps Outsider]
