Your savory breakfast links:

  • According to a source, the Caps "are not going to make him an offer" to free-agent-to-be Anton Volchenkov (who will most certainly be way overpaid by someone). As interesting as the news is the fact that the notoriously tight-lipped Caps let this news slip. Hmm. [CI]
  • Andrew Gordon had a great year in Hershey. Could he be in the mix for the parent club in 2010-11? [Masisak]
  • Some news regarding the Winter Classic that D.C. has been promised. [WaPo, CI]
  • Three things the Caps could stand to learn from the Flyers and Blackhawks. Allow me to add a fourth - don't overpay for a goalie. [Examiner]
  • Nicklas Backstrom on golf and Ovi. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Alex Ovechkin picks the Lakers in 5. [NBA.com]
  • AO running in Russia. Sorta. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • It wouldn't be a draft preview if it didn't predict the Caps taking a Russian. [The Pipeline Show]
  • A couple of gents with Caps ties are going to be heading up the U.S. team for the 2011 World Junior Championships. [Dump n' Chase]
  • It was a bit of déjà vu all over again for Karl Alzner in Game 1 of the Calder Cup Finals last night. [Masisak]
  • Catching up with Andrew Gordon after the loss. [Frankovic]
  • More on the game. [Vogs, Peerless, OFB, Caps Snaps, RMNB]
  • A look back at Mathieu Perreault's season and a look ahead for the diminutive pivot. [Live In Red]
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1998, "Joey Juneau scored at 6:24 of Overtime to give the Washington Capitals a 3-2 win over the Sabres, in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals in Buffalo. The win advanced the Caps to the Stanley Cup Finals, where they met Detroit." [more at CNNSI, AP]
  • Finally, happy 36th birthday to Jeff Toms and happy 44th to Nick Kypreos.
