Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Updates on all of the prospects as Development Camp rolls on, more on the Caps' free agency (non-)moves and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps have been quiet so far on the free agent market, and will likely stay that way going forward - which may actually be a good move down the road. [Dump 'n Chase, NBCW, WNST]
  • More on George McPhee's comments about free agency, Brooks Laich's role and what it means for the Caps. [Caps Across the Pond]
  • Plenty of news and notes from out at Kettler as Development Camp rolls on:
    • A quick primer on all the youngsters taking part in this week's camp. [Caps Outsider (with pics here)]
    • Hear all about Day 2 from some of the top prospects themselves... [Monumental video (Wilson, Bowey, Schmidt, Burakovsky)]
    • ...or read it in their own words as a couple of them take a stab at this blogging thing... [Caps (Bowey, Barber)]
    • ...or just check out some of the prospect highlights. [Monumental video (Barber, Carrick, Burakovsky)]
    • The prospects got a taste of what it's like to be an NHLer, as Adam Oates channeled his inner Herb Brooks by skating the boys hard on Day 2. [Peerless]
    • Andre Burakovsky is still trying to sort out where he's going to play next season after being drafted by the CHL last week. [WaPo, THN]
    • Patrick Wey knows where he wants to be next year, as he eyes a spot on Hershey's blue line... [PennLive]
    • ...while Michael Latta is looking to make a name for himself in DC (other than "that guy the Caps acquired with Martin Erat"). [WaPo, CSNW]
    • Nice profile of camp invitee Sam Anas, a DC area native and former Little Cap getting a shot with his hometown team. [Caps Overtime]
    • Tom Wilson is growing up before our very eyes... and showing some nice organizational loyalty. You tell that traitorous kid to get a new shirt, Tom. [CSNW, Express, RMNB, @tom_wilso]
    • Day 3 of camp gets underway today at 9:00 a.m. with Team Red, followed by Team White at 10:30 a.m. and the first intrasquad scrimmage at 3:45 p.m.
  • Continuing his look at a decade of Caps drafts, Peerless turns his eye to the first-rounders. [Peerless]
  • After signing with the Caps, former Rochester goalie David Leggio is looking forward to something he didn't have in the Sabres organization: a chance to play in the NHL. [Democrat & Chronicle, Buffalo Hockey Beat]
