Tuesday Caps Clips

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Still more Grabo chatter, the latest from Caps gone-camping and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Mikhail Grabovski and Joel Ward have at least two things in common: their employer and the size of their 2013-14 paychecks. [Rink]
  • Speaking of Grabovski, folks aren't done speaking of Grabovski:
    • The signing "will make Washington a legitimate Cup contender." [WaPo]
    • Alternatively, the signing was "mostly inconsequential." [Puck Daddy]
    • Either way, Grabo is "a class act," per the fella who signed him to the deal he was bought out of earlier this summer. [WaPo]
    • But is he a suitable replacement for Mike Ribeiro? [I Hate JJ Redick (me too)]
    • Oh, and Grabovski's agent is chatty as well. [RMNB]
    • Fantasy winners and losers in the aftermath of the deal. [Dynasty Sports Empire]
  • George McPhee did a couple of radio hits yesterday to talk about his new center and other topics. [ESPN 980 (audio), 106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Team USA orientation camp opened at Kettler yesterday:
  • Meanwhile, the Canadians are off doing some camping of their own...
  • ... and the Russians are debuting their Olympic duds, while Alex Ovechkin deftly sidesteps the big question that's making the rounds. [RMNB, YouTube (video)]
  • And speaking of the Cap'n, he's still pretty pretty good (and a solid fantasy option). [Talk The Red]
  • Troy Brouwer and pals do the beautification thing. [Capitals, Monumental (video), WaPo, RMNB]
  • Rookies, including Tom Wilson, are rookie-ing for the NHLPA. [NHLPA]
  • The Caps could stand to learn a thing or two from the Nats, who could've stood to have learned a thing or two from the Caps. [Caps Outsider]
  • Cool story, Bromine. [Peerless]
  • What do Brady Anderson, Jim Carey and Chris Simon have in common? [Grantland]
  • Get yer Joel Rechlicz bobblefists. [Patriot-News]
  • Finally, a very happy 51st birthday to Adam Oates.
