Friday Caps Clips

USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Looks ahead to the draft, free agency and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Save the dates - the Caps released their preseason schedule yesterday, highlighted (to the extent a preseason schedule can be highlighted) by home-and-homes with this year's Cup finalists. [Capitals, WaPo, CSNW]
  • If they hold onto the 23rd pick in Sunday's Draft, the Caps will be looking for a Ray Whitney or Ryan Kesler of their own... [Dump 'n Chase]
  • ... or another John Carlson/Mike Green-type diamond in the late-first rough. [CSNW]
  • Looking back at another game that mattered. [Peerless]
  • An overview of the summer ahead. [Capitals Outsider]
  • The Bolts are going to buy-out Vincent Lecavalier. Should the Caps be interested? (Spoiler alert: of course they should... at the right price.) [CSNW]
  • And the Caps' top prospect is... no surprise. [CSNW]
  • Andrew Gordon, Andrew Joudrey and Steve Pinizzotto are headed to free agency. Could any of them end up back in the organization? [Patriot-News]
  • As you're well aware, Calgary has been devastated by floods, and local Jeff Schultz is pitching in to help the clean-up efforts. [NHLPA]
  • You know you've arrived when they put your name on a golf tourney. [Lloydminster Source]
  • Finally, happy 46th birthday to the well-traveled Patrice Lefebvre.
