Your savory breakfast links:

  • D.J. King: "I'm not a guy to really say no, so if someone wants to try to start a fight I'm always willing to take it on." Are you not entertained?! [CI]
  • You had to know that "Antti Niemi to Washington" would be bandied about (and Semyon Varlamov apparently "left a lot to be desired during the Caps' first-round loss to the Montreal Canadiens in the playoffs" - and here I thought having the second-best GAA of any netminder with two or more appearances was a good thing.). [NHL.com, FanHouse]
  • Speaking of Varly, he's back in town and his old man is giving interviews back home. [Sovetsky Sport via Google Translate]
  • The Caps are one of four teams believed to be in the running for free agent defenseman Willie Mitchell. [Sportsnet]
  • Know what was awesome? When the Caps won the Eastern Conference last spring and advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals. [RtR, Twitpic]
  • Actually, had that happened, The First Fan would have stopped by the VC for a game. [Ted's Take, RMNB, D.C. Sports Bog]
  • Winter Classic seating chart and FAQs, from the Caps ("City of Pittsburgh Sports and Exposition Authority fee"? Really?). [Capitals (.pdf), Capitals (.pdf)]
  • Alex Ovechkin attends a soccer game with his girlfriend (or whatever), Russian paparazzi responds accordingly. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Ovi on Max Talbot and more. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Tarik El-Bashir: hero. Jake Whitacre: Tarik's mom's nom de plume. [SB Nation DC]
  • John Carlson doing "Flaming Stick." Sorta. [Jumping the Glass]
  • "Biggest offseason splurge?" Tomas Fleischmann: "What does 'splurge' mean?" That's just a sampling of the delightful repartee between CSN Washington's Michelle Scalise and the Caps' winger. [CSN Washington]
  • Former Caps on the move: Shaone Morrisonn to Buffalo, Donald Brashear to Atlanta (where he'll be bought out), and Glen Metropolit to Switzerland.
  • A look at where the Bears' roster stands. [HBH]
  • Photographic evidence of #RMNBparty. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 42nd birthday to Bobby Babcock.
