Wednesday Caps Clips

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Joel Ward rocks the Worlds, the "Gretzky to DC" rumors persist, and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Joel Ward continues to kick some serious international booty, adding a three-point performance in Canada's 3-2 win over Norway yesterday to his impressive resume. [CSNWAP]
  • Another impressive performer in Minsk? Mikhail Grabovski, who is just continuing to remind us all that he's a really good player who is not re-signed yet. [CSNW]
  • More report cards:
  • There are a bevy of job openings available around the League... [Grantland (DGB)]
  • ...including here in DC, where the GM search slogs on, four weeks after George McPhee was cut loose. [WaPo]
  • Could Wayne Gretzky - and Doug MacLean, dear god - be headed to DC to fill some of those vacancies for the Caps? Yikes. [CBS SportsPuck DaddyYahoo!]
  • Mike Vogel's end-of-season chat with poor, broken Brooks Laich and his poor, broken... well, just with Laich. [Rinkside Update]
  • Which of the city's four major sports teams stands the best chance of snapping DC's title drought? ...odd, "E) none of the above" doesn't seem to be an option. [WaPo]
  • Finally, happy 65th birthday to Bill "-82" Mikkelson and happy 35th to Graham Mink.
