Friday Caps Clips

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: On standing pat, Karl Alzner's contract and Tom Wilson's, Connor Carrick's and Riley Barber's futures

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Do something! Anything! Before Alex Ovechkin "retires" like Ilya Kovalchuk! (Then again, as a wise man once asked rhetorically, isn't doing nothing actually something?) [Hockey News]
  • Karl Alzner isn't complaining about his (relatively) modest pay day. Neither are we. [CSNW]
  • Would it make sense for Tom Wilson to make the Caps this fall? [ESPN ($)]
  • Speaking of Plymouth Whalers, Connor Carrick has his sights set on Washington. [CSNW]
  • Ditto Riley Barber. [RMNB]
  • If you happen to own a hockey team, now would seem to be a decent time to refinance it. (This is almost certainly applicable to a large portion of our readership.) [Forbes, PHT]
  • Finally, happy 40th birthday to Scott Walker.
