Saturday Caps Clips

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: A new name is added to the list of potential GM candidates, the Caps sign Djoos, Grabo talks pineapples and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Ray Shero is officially out as the Penguins' GM, which means Ray Shero is officially on the list of GM candidates for the Caps. [WaPoESPN ($), Fansided]
    • Should the man who pulled the strings for the Pens all these years be the next guy to do that in Washington? Some say yes... [Talk the Red]
    • ...others, not so much. Yeah, that draft record is really not pretty. [RMNBStars and Sticks]
    • Can you imagine Shero and George McPhee switching places? ...no. No, I cannot. [CSNW]
  • Meanwhile, as Shero was being kicked to the curb, Dan Bylsma somehow still has a job. So if you were picturing a Shero/Bylsma duo in DC, hold that thought... for now, at least. [Puck Daddy]
  • And back in Washington, not having a GM hasn't slowed the team down any, as they beat the deadline by two weeks and signed 2012 draft pick Christian Djoos. [CapsCSNW]
  • The Hershey Bears took care of a little business of their own, inking captain Dane Byers to a one-year contract extension. [Patriot NewsSHOE]
  • Report card time:
  • Mike Vogel conducts his end-of-season chat with Aaron Volpatti. [Rinkside Update]
  • Congrats to Professor Brouwer and all the good people who put together Capitals Red Line on their two Emmy nominations. Best of luck! [Caps]
  • The Verizon Center has officially passed the 40 million-visitor mark. And a few of those 40 million visitors even got to see a playoff win or two. [Washington Business Journal]
  • On Thursday, Mikhail Grabovski participated in a Q&A session with fans - and clears the air about his alleged ongoing feud with pineapples. [PPPIIHF]
