Your savory breakfast links:

  • Is it a three dog race in the East? Until Ryan Miller starts showing some fatigue, mark me down for "four." [Puck Daddy]
  • There's no place like home... there's no place like home. [TWT]
  • Joe Sacco fired back at Bruce Boudreau for calling out his goon, err, player. Of course, we Caps fans saw enough of Sacco as a player to know how weak, inaccurate and harmless his shots are. [All Things Avs]
  • It's nice to not see Alex Ovechkin too high on this list, isn't it? (Then again, he's at 25.2% for the games in which he's played.) [Slap Shot]
  • But he's at the very top of Dan Steinberg's list of D.C.'s top athletes over the past decade (one of Ovi's former teammates makes the list as well... sorry, Dainius, it's not you). [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • AO is only the third-best player of the decade, despite being more individually-accomplished than the guy directly ahead of him. [Sportsnet.ca]
  • Fresh power rankings are out, with the Caps down one to third at Sporting News, down two to third at Sportsnet.ca, down two to fourth at The Hockey News and USA Today, holding at fourth at ESPN, and up one to seventh at TSN.
  • A look at all (we think) a few of Ovechkin's Hockey News covers. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Which is more likely: the Eric Fehr is a "budding star" or that he's "trade bait"? [The Hockey News]
  • A look at the Caps' three young netminders. [Peerless]
  • A few of the Young Guns had some travel woes upon returning to D.C. on Sunday. [Aftonbladet via translated comment]
  • Bear Tracks! [LDN]
  • One Bear - John Carlson - is feeling especially patriotic these days. [LDN]
  • An overview of the upcoming World Junior Championships. [Puck Prospectus]
