Wednesday Caps Clips

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Wrapping up the World Junior Evaluation Camps, talking Winter Classic in the dog days of summer and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Breaking down the penalty plus-minus of the 2013 vintage Caps, featuring underlying notes of oft-penalized Chimera and a heady bouquet. [The Rink]
  • Our own JP cozied up to some of our friendly neighborhood Flyer fans last night and lived to tell the tale. We think. [BSH]
  • A current Cap and a former Cap make the list of overachievers from the 2012-13 season... yeah, that bodes well for this year. [THW]
  • Moving right along with the top 10 games of the upcoming 2013-14 season, a game that might (oh please oh please oh please) be the last time Martin Brodeur and Jaromir Jagr pay a visit to DC. [CSNW]
  • Speaking of visits to DC, just when will the Winter Classic be heading to the nation's capital? [CSNW]
  • After taking top honors a few years ago, the Hershey-Harrisburg area (home of several DC teams' minor league affiliates) is ranked a respectable third among minor league markets, behind Rochester and... Toledo? K. [Pennlive]
  • If you happen to be in that third-best area Friday night, be sure to swing by the Hershey Lodge for some puck talk. Chocolate and hockey, the cure for the August blues if ever there was one. [Pennlive]
  • Evaluation camps for World Juniors have wrapped up and a couple of Caps' prospects are drawing rave reviews. [USoH, ESPN ($)]
  • Strange story of the summer: Dalton Young, who recently attended the Caps' development camp out at Kettler, has been charged with stabbing his girlfriend's father. Bizarre. [Sporting News, Buzzing the Net]
  • Need restaurant recommendations? Some of your favorite local athletes give their picks in this handy guide for stalkers star-spangled rundown of popular local eateries. [Washingtonian]
  • As Caps fans probably remember, Jose Theodore has a pretty good glove hand... but who knew he could break it out while juggling a beer in the other? Multitasking skillz. [Puck Daddy]
