Your savory breakfast links:

  • Rookie Camp continues today at Kettler with on-ice testing from 10:00am to 11:00am on the Arlington Rink, then practice from 11:00am to noon on the Capitals Rink. [FanPost]
  • As camp opened on Wednesday, the Caps had some important news items to announce, among other things:
  • We ranked the Metro Division's top centers. Heated discussions ensued. Yay, Internet! [Rink]
  • In which the Caps are projected to finish sixth in the new Metro Division and also to bow out once more in the first round.  You'd be better off flipping a coin, or, y'know, playing the games. [THN]
  • 27 days out, 27 musings. Let's all have a Karl Alzner moment. [RMNB, RtR]
  • In a steel-cage matchup of fantasy right wings, it's Alex Ovechkin all day over Patrick Kane. Now if we could just figure out how to wedge the Stanley Cup Playoffs into a steel cage. [NHL.com]
  • The ongoing contract negotiations with restricted free agent Marcus Johansson are ongoing. [CSNW]
  • Hooray!  Evgeny Kuznetsov is definitely coming Stateside next season, except when he isn't. [KHL.hr, SI, TFP]
  • Speaking of Stateside, Ovi has arrived in New York City for the annual NHL stars media junket, even as the KHL/NHL debate continues to roil. [@ScottWapnerCNBC, WaPo, CSNW]
  • Crystal ballin' the 2013-14 season for Jason Chimera. [Peerless]
  • Oh hai there old friend Dave Steckel. You certainly have a lovely family, and... wait. You had to do what? Wow. [WaPo]
  • And also hai there to old friend Steve Kolbe, who has landed a gig calling preseason games for the Flightless Fowl. [TribLIVE]
  • Finally, happy 48th birthday to Mark Ferner.
