Your savory breakfast links:

  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday's practice [Vogs, CI, CI, McNally, Caps365 (video), dfndr13 on Flickr]
  • The Caps are certainly getting it done at one end of the rink (spoiler alert: it's not the end anyone really expected to be the team's strength through one month of play). [CSN Washington (Masisak)]
  • Why it's good for everyone to be hating on the Caps. [CSN Washington (May)]
  • Presumably Eric Fehr knows what he needs to do to get back in the lineup. Our guess is that it involves going to the net. Just a hunch. [CI (Schimmel)]
  • The best left-winger in the modern era? BOOM. [CBC, Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Of course, the jury's still out on him in the eyes of some (as it probably should be on a guy who's been in the League for just five years). [Toronto Star (Cox)]
  • And are Alex Ovechkin's best years behind him? [Peerless]
  • Michal Neuvirth, as we know, is one awfully quiet goalie. Here's more on "The Economy of Movement" in net. [DobberHockey]
  • More on the Caps' early season MVP. [DCEx (McNally)]
  • And since it's Election Day, you can vote Neuvy. [PHT]
  • A look back at the week that was. [Peerless]
  • Remembering some rough road trips. [TBD (Chamberlain)]
  • A bunch of media hits today, with Nicklas Backstrom on 106.7 The Fan's The Sports Junkies at 8:25 this morning, Brooks Laich on Toronto's FAN590 at 12:40 this afternoon, John Carlson on NHL Live some time between noon and 2:00 and Neuvirth on 106.7 The Fan's LaVar and Dukes at 4:00.
  • Keith Aucoin is October's AHL Player of the Month. [Patriot-News (Leone)]
  • Bear Tracks! [LDN]
  • Mike Gartner: the perfect skater? [CBC (Friedman)]
  • The four goals Caps prospect Philipp Grubauer allowed on Saturday won't help his goals against average... but the 53 saves he made will bolster the ol' save percentage. [The Whig Standard; Grubauer followed that game up with a more traditional 28-for-30 effort on Monday]
