  • A full-on column (front page, no less) from Steinz is always a good thing. [WaPo]
  • Corey on staying focused against lesser competition. [WaTimes]
  • "I think Pronger has the potential to do what he did in Edmonton, take a new team by the throat and drag it along for a long playoff run. Think he'd look pretty good in a Caps uniform alongside Mike Green?" "I don't get the sense the Caps are hungry to make a big move at this point. [ESPN]
  • Sovetsky Sport's Pavel Lysenkov spent a day with the Caps and has a bunch of photos to prove it, including one of the elusive Alex Semin smile (and nearly more). [Блог Павла Лысенкова]
  • Based on 1,000 simulations of the rest of the season, the Caps have a 5.3% chance of winning the Cup. [Hockey Reference]

  • ESPN's having some money troubles, so Versus puffs its chest out. [WSJ via TBL]
  • One year ago today was last season's Deadline Day. Honestly, D-Day might be my favorite holiday - all the fun of opening new presents and seeing what everyone else got without having to deal with all the family distractions. Love it.
  • More great news from SB Nation, where we introduced two new (well, not new so much as new to SB Nation) blogs, On The Forecheck and Matchsticks and Gasoline. OTF has long been one of my favorite blogs, and both have fantastic logos, so stop by and say hey.
