Your savory breakfast links:

  • Here's a Mike Green piece that might have slipped through the cracks if not for Sweet. [CTV]
  • Do Alex Ovechkin's back tats mean "one family" and "life"? [Hanzi Smatter (h/t Edanger)]
  • John Carlson is a better-skating Larry Murphy. From Dale Hunter's lips to the hockey gods' ears. []
  • I'll preface this by saying that, in general, I'm an enormous fan of Puck Prospectus. But sometimes even I don't buy what they're selling. This is one of those times (though I do strongly agree that "Alexander Semin and Nicklas Backstrom are better bets to provide stellar defense" than Ovechkin, as you might have heard). [Puck Prospectus]
  • Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Hockey has four Caps ranked in its top 22 players overall. Any guesses? [Puck Daddy]
  • A look at Semyon Varlamov's new gear. [Goalie Store via Caps Message Board]
  • Rocking the red continues to rock, but don't take my word for it - trust science. [The Sporting Blog]
  • Not surprisingly, the Caps' team Fenwick Number (similar to Corsi) was strong in 2008-09. [The Puck Stops Here]
  • A trio of Green pictures from Canada's Olympic Camp. [Facebook]
  • Cool vid on how the Giant Center painted its ice for the upcoming season. [Hershey Bears on YouTube (h/t @BanginPanger)]
  • In case you're curious as to what Frederic Cassivi is up to, this one's for you. [Stack the Pads]
  • Yet another Caps license plate. [Simply Sensational]
  • Happy 60th birthday to Michel Belhumer (who was 0-29-4 with a 5.32 GAA in his Caps career), happy 44th to Kevin Miller, happy 33rd to Ivan Majesky, and happy 52nd to Bobby Gould, who played 600 games in a Caps uniform, but will probably be best remembered for this.
