Your savory breakfast links:

  • At 22, Michal Neuvirth already has an incredibly impressive AHL resume (26-8/1.99/.927 in one-and-three-quarters playoff runs, as he stands just four wins from a second-consecutive Calder Cup)... and the confidence to match. [Masisak, Patriot-News]
  • Mike Knuble, Tomas Fleischmann and Eric Fehr all scored more goals in 2009-10 than one would have expected, given their respective career shooting percentages. The big difference? Fehr's 14.5% in 2009-10 should be more-or-less sustainable. Knuble's 19.2% and Flash's 19.0%? Not so much. [FtR]
  • Alex Ovechkin lost three more teeth at Worlds after getting a stick in the mouth. [Alex Ovetjkin, RMNB]
  • "Replacement is pretty easy to define for goaltenders: Vesa Toskala or Jose Theodore." Ouch, baby. Very ouch. [BtN]
  • Speaking of JT60, here he is "by the tens." [Peerless]
  • Opinions on Anton Volchenkov-to-the-Caps are like... well, you know: everyone's got one. [Live In Red, RMNB]
  • Some perspective on NHL super-stardom and what it entails. [Caps Today]
  • Is Keith Aucoin the answer to the Caps' search for depth down the middle? I don't think so, but someone does. [RtR]
  • George McPhee on the NHL Scouting Combine. [NHL]
  • There are few Bears who have done more and been discussed less than Patrick McNeill. [Dump n' Chase]
  • On Hershey's success. [OFB]
  • Finally, happy 34th birthday to Matt Herr (collegiate teammate of Knuble and Brendan Morrison, incidentally) and happy 51st to Pat Riggin (the franchise's all-time leader in adjusted goals against average).
