Friday Caps Clips

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Adam Oates assesses Year One, others assess Michal Neuvirth's season, reflections on the Caps' only Finals appearance, Evgeny Kuznetsov speaks and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Adam Oates on his first year behind the bench, where the team needs to improve, what he expects of his captain and more. [CSNW (Part I, Part II)]
  • A look back at Michal Neuvirth's 2013. [CSNW, Peerless, and our take here]
  • What's "the worst thing [George McPhee has] experienced in hockey"? That and more bittersweet nostalgia with GMGM and Olie Kolzig, 15 years after the Caps' only trip to the Finals. [CBSDC]
  • Um... Olympics, yeah? [PHT]
  • Evgeny Kuznetsov sounds NHL-ready... in that he's already experienced what happens when you go from flavor-of-the-month to falling short of expectations (realistic or otherwise). [RMNB]
  • Something old, something new, something Shark-y, something blue. [Icethetics]
  • Forty-eight score and three-and-a-half-years ago... Jason Chimera became a Cap. [@pikappkaz]
  • The Lethbridge Hurricanes have changed their logo from one that blatantly rips off the Caps to one that only mostly rips off the Carolina Hurricanes, so... progress. [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 26th birthday to Joel Rechlicz.
