Tuesday Caps Clips

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: An emphasis on development, (not) buying-out Brooks, and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Brian MacLellan is placing a renewed emphasis on player development, which not only sounds like a good idea, but makes you wonder how and why it had slipped. [NBC4]
  • Some cutting-room-floor quotes from Barry Trotz. [WaPo]
  • A look back at the season that was for...
  • Is Lane Lambert a name you should get to know? [Tennessean]
  • Brooks Laich doesn't want to be a guy who the Caps pay to not play for them, unsurprisingly (and don't expect him to be). [CSNW, PHT]
  • A (brief) look at the Big Three on D and what they've been able to do over time. [mc79hockey]
  • Braden Holtby is a man about (Old) Town. [RMNB]
  • Ted Leonsis, Alex Ovechkin and Mike Green get some nice recognition for the good they're doing away from the game. [Washington Life Magazine]
  • Later, Reading. [Caps Outsider]
  • You go, Jeff Schultz. [RMNB]
  • "Do I forget more than I’m supposed to forget? Is it four concussions and being knocked out that’s done this to my brain or is it just regular aging?" Scary questions with no easy answers. [The Star]
  • Long before there was The Great Eight, there was Murray Anderson... who wasn't great. [Stars and Sticks]
  • Finally, Evgeny Kuznetsov as a youngster with a sweet 'do... [NHL Players as Kids]
  • ... and as an adult back in Chelyabinsk playing a bit of metric football... [mega-u.ru]
  • ... because 'tis the season to be soccering, eh, Grabo? [RMNB]
