Saturday Caps Clips

Bruce Bennett

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Examining the benefits (or lack thereof) of an Ovechkin defection, a Royal farewell and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • THN's Adam Proteau suggests that Alex Ovechkin fleeing to the KHL would benefit both player and team; the Rink's Rob Parker offers a masterful rebuttal. Game, set, smakedown. [Rink]
  • Lots of good stuff from some of Barry Trotz's former players on the coach's style and how he treats his team. [WaPo]
  • A sneak peek into the mindset of new GM Brian MacLellan as he gets ready to put his stamp on this team. [CSNW]
  • Looking back at the season that was for Aaron Volpatti... [RinkRMNB]
  • ...and for Joel Ward. [CSNW]
  • Sitting down for a chat with Nicklas Backstrom. [Rinkside Update]
  • Joe Beninati's got some time on his hands these days, and he's putting it to good use with a bit of studio work for the DC United. [WaPo]
  • Arrivaderci, Reading Royals; we'd wish you well, but being affiliated with the Flyers kind of takes that option out of our hands. [Patriot-NewsLancaster Online]
  • Perhaps we should hold off on things like "Trotz vs. Ovechkin" until they at least... y'know, meet in person. No? Really? Okay. [THW]
  • Continuing a look at alphabetical Capitals, past and present, with two of the franchise's speediest players - Jason Allison and Karl Alzner. [Stars and Sticks (AllisonAlzner)]
  • Ted Leonsis is just one of many tech execs in the pro sports game - so how have Ted and his fellow techies done with their respective franchises? [USA Today]
  • Finally, happy 54th birthday to Greg Adams, happy 62nd birthday to Jean Lemieux, and a ssssssmokin' shoutout to Jim "Ace" Carey, who turns the big 4-0 today.
