Friday Caps Clips

USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Caps day on NHL.com, the top Caps of all-time, by nation, some Olympic chatter, predictions start rolling in and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Today is Caps Day on NHL.com, so spend some time with the following (just tremendous work by Corey Masisak, natch):
  • Far, they'd been traveling far. Without a home, but not without a star... a bunch of them, in fact, on Caps sweaters through the years. Here's our take on your Capitals National Hockey League of Nations [Puck Daddy]
  • Two guys who could end up on a version of that list a decade from now, John Carlson and Braden Holtby, have high - and realistic - hopes of representing their respective countries in Sochi early next year... [Rink]
  • ... even if folks continue to place Carlson on the proverbial bubble. [CP, Sporting News]
  • Carlson and his fellow Team USA campers spent Tuesday evening at Nats Park and looked sharp doing so. [Monumental (video)]
  • Meanwhile, Karl Alzner chatted about the good ol' days at Team Canada camp. [Hitmen]
  • The Metro Division figures to be tightly packed, and the latest odds reflect that... and give the Caps' the second-best chance of coming out on top... [CSNW]
  • ... while Dave Lozo has 'em third. [Backhand Shelf]
  • The clock's ticking on Marcus Johansson... but nothing happens if it hits zero except the Caps go on with life and he sits, so, really... time to sign, kid. [CSNW]
  • Brooks Laich at 54 points on a Caps team with Grabovski on it? Mark me down for the under. [NHL.com]
  • And while we're at it, I'll take the under on Troy Brouwer scoring 30 goals as well. [Talk The Red]
  • Steve Oleksy and Nail Yakupov are BFFs or something. [RMNB]
  • Rookie Camp opens in less than a week, so enjoy the long weekend, because there's hockey on the other side. [Capitals]
  • Speaking of rookie camp, Andre Burakovsky will be there, but first he - and his gear, hopefully - are stopping in Erie. [Telly]
  • Evgeny Kuznetsov won't be there, but when (if?) he finally does come over... man. [RMNB]
  • Joel Rechlicz and Philipp Grubauer shall bobble different body parts for your pleasure. [Caps Outsider]
  • Thoughtful, thorough and entertaining piece (as you'd expect) on the convergence of Russia, hockey, and human rights as the Puck Buddys chat with Slava Malamud. [Puck Buddys]
  • Finally, if this is the end of the line for Mike Knuble, three cheers on a great career. [MLive]
