Your savory breakfast links:

  • Stop me if you've heard this one: the Caps have a plan and they're sticking to it. [WaPo]
  • Ted Leonsis wasn't a fan of Ilya Kovalchuk's now-rejected new deal (guess my idea for a 21-year deal with a $1.5 million cap hit for Brooks Laich is a no-go). [D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Speaking of Leonsis, there's some nameplate shufflin' going on at Monumental. Congrats, Kurt. Call me. [CI]
  • Back to the Kovalchuk deal, here's a look at the League's longest contracts, with a couple of locals represented, one of whom looks like a bigger bargain every day. [FanHouse]
  • Vogs takes a look back at Development Camp 2004. ♫ Misty Nolan Yonkman memories... of the way we were. ♪ [Dump 'n Chase]
  • What's Development Camp all about, anyway? [OFB]
  • It sounds like Dmitri Orlov wants to come on over ASAP. [RMNB]
  • Lest you think Alex Ovechkin is having all the fun this summer, his running mate seems to be handling himself alright as well. [Stureplan via FanShot]
  • Eric Fehr reflects (briefly) on the career of retiring Mike Keane. [Winnipeg Sun]
  • Garbage passing for content at MSN. [MSN]
  • Chatting with Hershey bench boss Mark French. [RtR]
  • Recapping Braden Holtby's week at Development Camp. [Stack the Pads]
  • A bit on Hershey's newest goalie, Jared DeMichiel. [RepublicanAmerican]
  • Local product Chris Bond was a free agent invitee at camp last week, and some in the local media noticed. [Fairfax Times, Fairfax Times]
  • On this date back in 1999, the Caps signed Ulf Dahlen, who had played the two prior seasons in Sweden. Dandy pick-up.
  • Finally, happy 29th birthday to Timo Helbling.
  • Update: Shameless self-promotion - go vote for us.
