Your savory breakfast links:

  • Recaps of last night's game from Corey (blog, article) and Tarik (blog, article).
  • Post-game video from Bruce Boudreau, Jose Theodore,
  • Quintin Laing is just an awesome dude. Period, end of discussion. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • In other "Guys We Root For" news, Brian Pothier's puck-moving skills make him quite valuable to a defense that is lacking in that area. [Washington Times]
  • Should we be concerned about Brendan Morrison, who "has been held out with a sore neck stemming from the hit in Buffalo"? [@cmasisak22]
  • Eric Duhatschek predicts the top 200 scorers for 2009-10 (neither Alex Ovechkin nor Sidney Crosby holds the top spot, but he's got much love for the Caps' Young Gun forwards, overall). [Globe and Mail]
  • Good stuff on Arturs Irbe and Semyon Varlamov. [Sporting News]
  • Varly's definitely one to watch for in 2009-10. [CP]
  • Spector breaks down the East. [Fox Sports]
  • If you like your previews sans original or unique thought, here's one take on the Southeast Division... [The Hockey News]
  • ... while here's another that's actually interesting. [Sportsnet.ca]
  • One of the better preseason previews of the Caps that you're likely to read... and it's from ESPN.com. Shakes your worldview, don't it? [ESPN.com]
  • You'd be hard-pressed to rock any more red than this guy (and have we confirmed that Anton Gustafsson did indeed report to Hershey - we've seen him in a similar get-up). [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Indeed we do have that confirmation, via a first-hand account of yesterday's Bears practice. [Hershey Bears Hockey]
  • With the Redskins circling the bowl already (again), the Caps provide some positive sports vibe for the city (but not enough). [Washington Times]
  • Olie Kolzig was on The John Thompson Show to talk about hanging 'em up. [ESPN 980 (audio), Capitals Insider (partial transcript)]
  • Ted Leonsis answers some FAQs on Olie's retirement so stop bugging him with stupid emails. [Ted's Take]
  • Finally, happy 32nd birthday to the one and only Alexandre Volchkov. Ugh.
