Your savory breakfast links:

  • Be sure to check out the fourth installment of our All-Time Capitals Team Tournament - don't forget to vote! [Rink]
  • The Cult of Hockey has crunched the numbers to rank their top 50 players of all time, and Alex Ovechkin makes the cut... unlike some people who will not be named. [Edmonton Journal]
  • A fond farewell to the Caps from one of their now-former division rivals. [The Rat Trick]
  • It may just be an off-ice evaluation camp, but Braden Holtby is still pretty pumped about his first taste of an Olympic experience. [CSNW]
  • On hockey as theater: "It’s easy and satisfying to attach reason to everything, but part of the beauty of sports is that things happen without regard of logic or good sense." Hear, hear! [BHS]
  • Season 2 of "Table Manners" with the Sports Junkies kicks off in a few weeks but the full slate of guests has been unveiled. Tune in to see if the Secretary of Defense remembers to keep his elbows off the table. [DC Sports Bog]
  • After a year of waiting, the good people of Belleville, Ontario is just over a month away from getting to see the thrilling preseason matchup between the Jets and Caps. Er... or maybe they'd prefer to wait another year? [Quinte News]
  • The 25th anniversary of Wayne Gretzky's trade from Edmonton reminds us that other superstars have been traded in their prime. Lucky #13 on this list should look pretty familiar (except for the smile). [SI.com]
  • More memorable goals in franchise history, featuring one of our favorite Ranger-killers. All together now, kids: Druuuuuuuuuce... [GM on a Couch]
  • Probably one of the cooler Capitals souvenirs, a team-signed guitar, is up for auction and its for a great cause - go bid! [RMNB]
  • Happy 41st birthday to Corey Hirsch, and happy 57th to Mike McEwen.
