Your savory breakfast links:

  • Scoping out the restricted free agent landscape for the Caps as a summer of decisions draws closer... [THW]
  • ...and a look at the new division from the perspective of old division rival Carolina as realignment looms. [Shutdown Line]
  • Breaking down Tomas Kundratek's brief stint with the Caps. [CSNW (with our take here)]
  • Really interesting look from Justin Bourne on the relationships within hockey coaching staffs. [BHS]
  • Speaking of coaches, Adam Oates heads into his sophomore season as the Caps' bench boss with great expectations. [ESPN]
  • Ranking NHL logos from ugly to iconic. And just as in most regular rankings, the Caps come in... mediocre. Clearly someone's never seen the inspired Weagle. [Sportsnet]
