Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: The Caps move yet another goaltender, Tom Poti makes it official and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Jaroslav Halak era in Washington has come to an end, as the Caps swapped the pending UFA to the Islanders for a fourth-round pick in this summer's draft. [CapsWaPoCSNWNBC4LHHAPPuck DaddyRMNBWNSTNY PostNewsdaySISporting News]
  • If you haven't read Mike Vogel's final chat with exiting general manager George McPhee about the last 17 years, do so immediately - and if you have, read it again. [Dump 'n Chase]
    • Tucked within that fantastic work is this little nugget: McPhee warned Ted Leonsis that trading for Jaromir Jagr - remember him? - was a bad idea. Brilliant man, that GMGM. [WaPo]
  • More from McPhee's exit interview with the press. [CSNW]
  • A fond farewell to Tom Poti, who has officially announced his retirement after 824 NHL games (230 of which were played in a Caps' jersey). Best wishes, sir... thanks for the memories. [NHLPAWaPoCSNWPHTSportsnetAP]
  • Ted Leonsis: "[W]e're probably better served in bringing in a fresh set of eyes and a fresh set of voices." [WaPo]
  • The DSP crew chats about last weekend's changes and what lies ahead for the Caps. [DSP]
  • Looking back at the season that was for:
  • The Caps have reportedly offered a tryout to Slovenian Center Jan Urbas (aka "that guy who played on the same team as Anze Kopitar at the Olympics"). [RMNB]
  • As the second round of the playoffs gets underway, you may need some help selecting a new bandwagon team. Down Goes Brown has you covered (and so do we). [Grantland]
  • Finally, happy 34th birthday to Jason Chimera.
