Wednesday Caps Clips

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Wrapping up the Wraps, talking Trotz, seeking a new ECHL affiliate and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Taking a look at the relatively good - and bad - of the past seven seasons for the Caps. Spoiler alert... Nicklas Backstrom is very good at the hockey. [Rink]
  • A few more (last) report cards to hand out:
  • Sorry, everyone - the Caps will not be using their compliance buyout on Brooks Laich this summer; since he's sticking around, some think he'd be better off talking less and doing more. [Talk the Red]
  • No official decisions have been made on who will join Barry Trotz behind the bench next season, but it's likely that the new coach will be making some changes. [CSNW]
  • Speaking of Trotz, he's inheriting at least a few guys who could thrive under his watch. [Stars and Sticks]
  • Mike Vogel's end-of-season chat with Troy Brouwer. [Rinkside Update]
  • Wanted: one ECHL affiliate. [WaPoCSNWStars and Sticks]
  • The Caps  pick in the first round awaits the Caps in Philly at the end of the month - take a look at some recent 13th-overall picks, and one particularly enigmatic one by the Caps. [THW]
  • Making the case for Ales Hemsky in Washington. [Stars and Sticks]
