Your savory breakfast links:

  • Be sure to check out Japers' Rink Radio tomorrow morning, as Stephen and Russell chat with very special guests Karl Alzner and's Scott Cullen (who will discuss this article, among other topics) and take your calls. Not. To. Be. Missed.
  • George McPhee is still rather bullish about his team (as well he should be), and that Marcus Johansson is "ready to play." Interesting. [NHL]
  • The Caps' preseason schedule is coming into focus with a pair of dates with each of the Blue Jackets and the Predators already announced and one more home-and-home to be revealed before Tuesday.
  • A look ahead to the Caps' 2010 draft (which begins a week from today). [Hockey's Future]
  • Speaking of the draft, Caps uber-scout Ross Mahoney reveals the pick of which pick he's most proud. [StarPhoenix]
  • Zbynek Michalek and Henrik Tallinder are two names that could be on the Caps' radar as July 1 draws closer. (Want, Don't Want, for the record.) [RMNB]
  • No matter how you slice and dice it, the Caps had some pretty impressive plus-minus stats this past season. [The Puck Stops Here]
  • Will Alex Ovechkin three-peat as the Lindsay/Pearson winner? [Live in Red]
  • A bit from Nicklas Backstrom's charity golf event back home. [FanShot]
  • Speaking of phenomenal set-up men, is Adam Oates Hall-worthy? And will writing that get me Google traffic for people searching for Hall & Oates? [Greatest Hockey Legends]
  • Some interesting notes from Chocolatetown as AHL free agency looms. [Patriot-News]
  • One of those AHL free agents, Alexandre Giroux, went on quite the hirsute adventure this spring. [RtR]
  • The Bears' three-headed monster in goal was huge this season. [Stack the Pads]
  • Mathieu Perreault gets some love from back home... [La Tribune (via Google Translate)]
  • ... as does Andrew Gordon. [Metro Halifax]
  • Cody Eakin on the Calder Cup and next season. [Keen's Korner]
  • Congrats to Patrick Wey on getting invited to USA Hockey’s National Junior Evaluation Camp. [KCRG]
  • Poor Feds. Sorta literally. [Detroit News]
  • When Ian Schultz got the call yesterday that he'd been traded to Montreal, big brother Jeff was there with him. Aww. [Future Considerations]
  • Finally, happy 46th birthday to Bob Rouse.
