Your savory breakfast links:

  • A few contract notes:
    • No surprise, but it looks as if the Caps and Jose Theodore (the subject of today's Rink Wrap) will go their separate ways. [WaPo, CI]
      • Can the Caps afford to go with two kids in goal? [Live In Red]
    • The team is, however, negotiating a multi-year deal with restricted free agent Eric Fehr. [CI]
    • Eric Belanger is looking for a three-year deal with the Caps (but would take less money on a four-year deal). The Habs would also be high on Belly's list of destinations if something can't be worked out with the Caps. [CBC via HockeyExpress]
  • And then there's "The Alex Semin Dilemma." [Hockey Independent]
  • Alex Ovechkin's still got a full set of lower teeth, apparently. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • The Caps' favorite fishing holes of late? Russia and the USHL. [The Copper & Blue]
  • CapsCon II is coming up. Plan accordingly. [Capitals]
  • Congrats to Joe B. on another local Emmy. [CSN Washington]
  • Off-day notes from the Calder Cup Finals. [Andrew Gordon at RMNB, Vogs, Patriot-News]
  • On this date back in 1997, the Caps hired George McPhee as their general manager and Ron Wilson as their head coach. One year to the day later, the team played the first Stanley Cup Finals game in franchise history.
  • Per the HHoF, on this date back in 1982, "Buffalo Sabres traded Alan Haworth and a 3rd round draft choice in 1982 (Milan Novy) to Washington for a 2nd round draft choice (Mike Anderson) and a 4th round draft choice (Tim Jutila) in 1982."
  • Finally, happy 48th birthday to Brian Tutt and happy 56th birthday to John Paddock.
