Wednesday Caps Clips

Rick Osentoski/USA Today

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Looking ahead to the Draft in Philly, Trotz and his forwards, CapsCon cancelled and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Following up Monday's look at how Barry Trotz used his D in Nashville, Muneeb breaks down the forward usage and what it could mean for the Caps. [Rink]
  • There are other reasons why this Caps' win over the Red Wings mattered, but the biggest and best is that it gave us Michael Latta's 1st goal... followed by his Happy First Goal Face of Glee. [Peerless]
  • Speaking of Latta, he lands at #4 in a countdown of the year in pugilism. [Caps Outsider]
  • With the new GM and new head coach already vocal about the need to develop players, what is next for Tom Wilson? [Talk the Red]
  • It's official: the 2014 Caps Development Camp, featuring the organization's prospects on ice and culminating with a Fan Fest, will be July 7-12. [CapsWaPoCSNWPatriot-News]
  • Also official: the 2014 Caps Convention will not be at all, as the team has decided to focus on planning the upcoming Winter Classic. Like, say, selecting a venue and an opponent. [WaPoRMNB]
  • As the game changes and analytics become more revealing, the age of the big, burly defensive defenseman may be coming to an end...slowly. Which seems appropriate. [Driving Play]
  • The Caps hold the 13th-overall pick in this year's NHL Entry Draft... will it turn out to be lucky? [CSNW]
  • Mike Vogel's Breakdown Day chat with the man, the myth, the legend, Joel Ward. [Rinkside Update]
  • As the speculation over who Barry Trotz's future assistants continues, eyes turn to former Canucks' assistant Mike Sullivan. [CSNW]
  • Just what will this Caps' team look like in the fall - and who won't be back? [Caps Outsider]
  • Former Cap Brian Sutherby has a new gig! One of us...one of us... [The Leafs Nation]
  • Wall Street is littered with former NHLers, including a handful of ex-Caps (or "ex-Caps"?). [Business Insider]
  • A pretty cool class project kicks off with a pretty badass tattoo. [Fanpost]
  • Finally, happy 45th birthday to Kip Miller.
