Friday Caps Clips

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The year in Holtby, the GM search continues, Ovechkin shoots more than just pucks and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • What to do with Tom Wilson and using intense statistical analysis (a.k.a. guessing) to determine when the Caps' GM will be hired in this week's Mailbag. [Rink]
  • If you were on track to fill one of the GM vacancies, where would you rather go - Vancouver or the good ol' Capitals of Washington? [Vancouver Province]
  • The Caps need a new GM and a new head coach. At least one of those may be departing the Pittsburgh Penguins in the coming days. Interesting. [CSNW]
  • A new GM will be needed before decisions can be made on the team's only two pending unrestricted free agents, Mikhail Grabovski and Dustin Penner. [TFP]
  • The year in Braden Holtby. [RinkCSNWRMNB]
  • Whenever the team hires a new GM, the team might want to consider changing their approach to prospects. [THW]
  • The view of the postseason from the sidelines hasn't been so bad. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Meanwhile in Minsk:
  • Tyson Strachan's charity, Strachan's Strays, will host a fundraiser at Nationals Park on June 1 to benefit Homeward Trails Animal Rescue. [DSP]
  • On the morning after yet another DC team is eliminated from the postseason at home (RIP, Wizards), relive the sad history of DC teams... well, being eliminated from the postseason at home. [WaPo]
  • Finally, happy 30th birthday to Tomas Fleischmann.
