Wednesday Caps Clips

USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: No room for Ribeiro, the NHL's competition committee makes some changes, Mike Green's back on the web and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • With exactly one month left until the start of free agency - a.k.a. the day half the League's owners and GMs lose their minds - brush up on who will be hitting the open market this summer... [Capgeek]
  • ...and you might want to add Mike Ribeiro to that list, because the Caps might not have room for him. [CSNW]
  • John Erskine gets his report card... [CSNW (and check out our take from last week here)]
  • ... as does Marcus Johansson. [Peerless]
  • Change is a-comin', as the NHL's competition committee has determined that visors will be mandatory starting next season. Also on the table: goalie equipment, shallower nets and (huzzah!) hybrid icing. [Puck Daddy, CBS Sports, NYTimes, AP, BHS]
  • With the towering defenseman most likely on his way out of DC, look back on some memorable Jeff Schultz moments (and be sure to check out D'ohboy's great guest post on just what happened with Double-Nickel). [RMNB]
  • Don't worry, Eric Fehr - your spectacular, defense-splitting, overtime-winning, Bruin-beating goal will always hold a special place in our hearts. [Caps Outsider]
  • Mike Green has a brand new website (RIP, greenlife52.com) and made one lucky fan/customer's day. Miss Manners would be proud, Mike. [DC Sports Bog, Caps Outsider]
  • Learn the lessons of Peerless, children: late-night pizza and hockey fandom don't mix. But they sure produce entertaining results. [Peerless]
  • Tremendous story of former Caps playoff hero John Druce, who is raising money and awareness for pediatric cancer in honor of his daughter's three-time fight with leukemia. [Toronto Star (h/t Puck Daddy)]
  • Finally, happy 53rd birthday to Andre Hidi, happy 48th to Alfie Turcotte, and happy 29th to Jakub Klepis.
