Thursday Caps Clips

Oi Oi Oi - Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Barry Trotz looks to overhaul his lieutenant corp, Brian MacLellan had best be looking to overhaul his D-corps, and a trip or two down memory lane.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • The organ-i-zation needs to do something about Ye Olde Blueline, for true. [Rink]
  • As Barry Trotz begins to ponder the Caps' assistant coaching depth chart, here's a name to consider: Claude Noel... [CSNW]
  • ... and here is Kasperi Katanen, a draft-eligible forward of Finnishness who could be available at the 13th spot in the upcoming draft...  [iltalehti.fi (link in Fïïnnïsh])
  • ... but should the team also take a look at signing Russian blueliner Andrei Zubarev? [RMNB]
  • Joel Ward gets a bobblehead befitting Joel Ward. [RMNB, Caps Outsider]
  • As Bob Woods prepares to head north to run the Saskatoon Blades, Mike Green reminisces about his former bench boss and his former team. [Star Phoenix]
  • How do you use Ovi when you can't use Ovi?  Nike found a way, and it was awesome. [Instinct]
  • Speaking of AO8, take a trip down I-95 memory lane with the Caps Road Crew as they brought five buses of fans to see The Future get drafted. Ten years ago. [Our Own Little Corner]
  • World Championship Goalvechkin... [Stadium.ru]
  • ... and a golazo for EK74. [sports.ru]
  • Nathan Walker makes it, barely, onto the list of Aussies who have dominated in the U-S-of-A. [Courier Mail (link in Australian)]
  • Happy 54th birthday to Andre Hidi, happy 49th to Alfie Turcotte, and happy 3-0 to Jakub Klepis.
  • Finally, we learned yesterday that Katie Carrera is stepping away from the Caps beat for new challenges at the Post. We'll miss you, Katie. So as a door closes, a window opens,and we welcome new WaPo beatnik Alex Prewitt. Here are his bona fides. --> [WaPo]
