Your savory breakfast links:

  • The first game of the Duchesne Cup tourney highlighted yesterday's camp action:
    • Group C jumped out to a 1-0 start with a 4-3 win over Group B. Kind post-scrimmage words for Andrew Gordon, Mathieu Perreault and Sean Collins, among others. [Capitals, In The Room]
    • Vogs recaps the scrimmage, including Q&A's with Bruce Boudreau, Matt Bradley and Brendan Morrison. [Caps365 (video)]
    • Five-hundred words on "opportunity," and two of 'em are "Jan" and "Benda." [Dump and Chase]
    • Peerless recaps the day (with photos to boot). [Peerless]
    • As does OFB. [OFB]
    • Tarik on the goaltending situation. [Washington Post]
    • Corey on the captain. [Washington Times]
    • More on Tomas Fleischmann's injury. [In The Room]
    • Can Alexandre Giroux make the jump from Chocolatetown to Chinatown? [John Walton Hockey]
    • Pictures! [TTT Hockey, Caps in Pictures (and again), sk8]
    • Neither Mike Green nor his ride are bound by conventional rules. [Rock the Red.net]
  • The Caps shot their video open last night and (spoiler alert!) it doesn't appear that there's any eye-liner or hairspray to be found. Check out some quick vids here, here and here and pics here.
  • TSN.ca's fantasy rankings are out, and you can check out their point projections here. Apparently Michael Nylander has a 48-point season ahead of him. In the NHL. We'll take the under (and the over on Alexander Semin's 66 points). [TSN.ca]
  • There are "currently only two NHL players that are bigger than the sport." Sorry, Schultzie, you ain't one of 'em. [XM204]
  • Pierre LeBrun's got some burning questions. Perhaps someone can suggest a soothing ointment to help him out. [ESPN]
  • CapsChick gives her take on the goalies. Jason Bacashihua sheds a single tear. [VFtCS]
  • In the second installment of "Behind the Bench," Boudreau recalls his 9/11 story. [Capitals]
  • Finally, happy 56th birthday to Ken Houston and happy 51st to Joel Quenneville.
