Your savory late summer Saturday brunch links:

  • Japers' Rink Radio hits the interwaves today at 10 Eastern with two great guests - centerman Mathieu Perreault and the premier hockey columnist at the Globe and Mail (and former SBN head hockey honcho) James Mirtle. [JRR]
  • Oh looky, we've got a question teed up already:  "So, Perry...are you a clutch player?"  Pythagoras makes an appearance. [RMNB]
  • Tournament time is at hand as the European youth hockey teams begin their tuneups for World Juniors.  Caps prospects Evgeny Kuznetsov and Dmitry Orlov are now in Nyköping, Sweden with the Team Russia U-20s to begin training for a four-team tournament (Russia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Finland) that will be played September 3-5. [Russian Hockey Federation]
  • In other Russian hockey news, the капитан of the <<вашингтон>> капиталс,  Alex Ovechkin, has been named to the newly established "Public Council of the Hockey Glory of Russia," perhaps better labeled as the Russian Hockey Hall of Fame committee.  Councillor Овечкин will need to recuse himself from deliberations in about twenty years or so. [SovSport]
  • Hey now.  Looks like Alex has a sweet new ride. [Global Caps Fans, plus pic]
  • A fighter...and a winker.  The eternal riddle of General Manager George McPhee. [Caps Outsider]
  • The pads, they are a-changin'.  Hope you brought your tape measure tailor's chalk quantum physics degree. [Flashy Glove Save]
  • Misty Skipjack-colored memories. [JtG]
  • You know he's just there for the early-bird special. [On Frozen Pond]
  • Hershey's Mt. Puckmore.  The sweetest mountain on Earth. [Hershey Bears]
  • Would you like to see some Bears games from the comfort of your living room?  Let CSN know.  [Live in Red]
  • Oh Yes!  Capitals are still the team to beat in the East.  Oh No! Not ending, that way, again. Gah. [DC Pro Sports Report]
  • Finally, find yourself a festive frosty beverage and put this Nicklas Backstrom highlights video on repeat.  #isitOctoberyet? [FanShot]
