Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Player evals, French in Russia, Russians in France and so on.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The day in player reviews:
  • George McPhee and his hockey ops staff have interviewed 71 potential future Caps at the NHL Draft Combine as they hope to restock the cupboard with some nice pieces later this month. [CSNW]
  • Speaking of prospects, get to know Riley Barber. [THW]
  • Good luck to one French in Russia... [Patriot-News (and yes, the team is based in Croatia, but cut me some slack)]
  • ... and continued luck to one Russian at the French. [CSNW]
  • Must... resist... urge... to buy... LEGOVECHKIN. [Caps Outsider]
  • Voting closes at noon for Fehr vs. Datsyuk. You know what to do. [TSN]
  • Finally, happy 39th birthday to Jeff Toms, happy 43rd to John Gruden, and happy 47th to Nick Kypreos.
