Tuesday Caps Clips

Geoff Burke-US PRESSWIRE

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Another front office promotion (this time it's Ross Mahoney), Brian MacLellan speaks on a wide range of topics and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • We've looked back on how Barry Trotz has deployed his forwards and defensemen in the past for some clues as to how he might utilize the personnel in D.C., now how about some hints as to how they might try to gain the offensive zone? [Rink]
  • In yesterday's big news, Ross Mahoney was promoted to Assistant General Manager and spoke with the media... [Monumental (video, but really audio), WaPo, NBC4, CSNW]
  • ... as did his boss, Brian MacLellan... [Monumental (video), RMNB]
  • ... who discussed a number of things, including:
  • Still no official word on putative Caps goalie coach Mitch Korn (which is a little weird), but once he gets here, expect him to help improve an already-solid position. [CSNW]
  • MacLellan mentioned he's less interested in moving Mike Green and more interested in getting him on track here, which is good because Mike Green is good at hockey. [THW]
  • MacLellan also mentioned the possibility of moving up or down in the draft. But if they stay put at lucky number 13, one kid they could be looking at is Haydn Fleury. [NBC4]
  • Those rumors of the Caps opening up the checkbook to lure Bob Nicholson to town to take over as the team's CEO? Baseless, according to a guy who certainly would know. [Ted's Take]
  • Caps-Pens. March 11. It mattered. [Peerless]
  • Want to turn one dollar into thirty-three? Bet on the Caps to win the Cup, and if they do... boom. [CSNW]
  • Speaking of buyouts, here are a quartet of candidates who could conceivably help the Caps, should their current employers decide to pay them to go away. [Stars & Sticks]
  • Who wants to be a Red Rocker? [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 33rd birthday to Matt Hendricks and happy 37th to Trent Whitfield.
