Your savory breakfast links:

  • Hey, in case you haven't heard, the Caps will be playing in not one, but two Winter Classics over the next few years, starting with January 1, 2011 in Pittsburgh. Catch up on any of the coverage you might have missed over the holiday weekend. [Masisak, Ted's Take, Puck Daddy]
  • On Winter Classic wardrobe selections. [OFB]
  • In other news, the salary cap might increase by as much as $2 million next season, which is particularly sweet news for teams that already have a few big contracts and may be looking to add Anton Volchenkov another. [DCEx]
  • Evgeni Malkin calls Alex Ovechkin the "Russian Canadian." I think he meant it as a compliment. [Puck Daddy]
  • Experience matters when it comes to winning in the spring. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Eric Fehr is one heck of an actor, but, as noted in the comments here, given the lack of screen time for F-16 despite his obvious talent, one wonders if Bruce Boudreau is the director. [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Andrew Gordon and Andrew Joudrey get some love from back home as they play for the AHL's biggest prize. [Halifax Herald (more on Gordon here)]
  • The Caps need a prolonged playoff run next season if for no other reason than Karl Alzner's playoff beard. [AHL.com, YouTube]
  • Finally, per the HHoF, on this date back in 1976, "In the NHL Amateur draft held in Montreal, the Washington Capitals used the #1 pick overall to select Rick Green." Green played 845 NHL games (only three players from that draft played more), won a Cup and was a key piece in the Rod Langway trade.
