Monday Caps Clips

Rob Carr

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: There's a lot of Gretzky smoke out there; now to see if there's a fire.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • "Mutual interest."  The rumo(u)rs are rolling regarding a possible Caps management role for Wayne Gretzky. [NYPost, Edmonton Sun, TFP]
  • The year in...
  • Looking ahead to Philipp Grubauer's 2014-15. [THW]
  • Peruse the Caps' player pantry.  Here's $13 million in cap room.  How would you spend it? [CSNW]
  • Time for a prospect pool update. [HF]
  • Speaking of prospects, Garrett Haar and the Portland Winterhawks are up two games to none over the Edmonton Oil Kings, halfway to the WHL championship and a berth at the Memorial Cup tournament.  Game Three is Tuesday in EDM.  [Yahoo Sports]
  • Mike Ribeiro didn't quite work out as expected for Phoenix this season, but luckily he's got three more years to make it right. [THW]
  • Hockey's loss was LaxNation's gain as Joe Beninati returned to his roots to call some lacrosse for CSN. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 49th birthday to Grant Jennings, who is the only player in franchise history to have appeared in the playoffs for the Caps but never a regular season game.
