Your savory breakfast links:

  • On Winter Classic tickets. [Ted's Take]
  • "Washington has to be considered the most likely destination for Niemi." At least, so say the numbers. [ESPN Insider ($)]
  • Another two cents on that same topic. [Kings of Leonsis]
  • Would Willie Mitchell be an upgrade to the Caps' D-corps? [RMNB]
  • ♫ Reunited and it feels so good ♪... Olie Kolzig will be at Caps Convention. [Capitals]
  • A look ahead to 2010-11's milestones. [Peerless]
  • "Any type! Brunettes, blondes, redheads, I love everybody." Guess who. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Mike Knuble will be skating in a University of Michigan alumni game on Friday... presumably in the 35-and-over game, with college hockey icon Red Berenson. Ouch. [MGoBlue]
  • When the Caps visit the Devils on March 18, the hosts will be decked out in their Christmas Tree finery. One would assume that the Caps would rock their Winter Classic retro look for the game. [Fire & Ice]
  • Blueline prospect Patrick Wey made it through the last round of cuts (from 42 to 28 players) at the 2010 USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp. [USA Hockey]
  • A bit more on Wey. [KG's District, Masisak and Caps Today (from back at D-Camp)]
  • Cody Eakin is also getting ready to go camping. [Hockey Canada]
  • If you've ever wondered what Nicklas Backstrom would look like in a Leafs sweater from behind, this link's for you. [Allehanda via Google Translate, with a similar year-old shot at Nochnaya huligana]
  • The Caps have renewed their ECHL affiliation with South Carolina. Stingray grads who've played for the big club so far include Michal Neuvirth and Andrew Gordon. [Capitals]
  • Vogs brings you up-to-date on what you've missed while he's been on a well-deserved vacation. [Dump 'n Chase]
  • A new-to-me Brooks Laich article is always timely. [The Badger]
  • Mmm... Crapdogs. [Alex Ovetjkin]
  • The Caps' media/PR/marketing shuffle continues and has left a couple of openings. If you're wondering whether you're qualified, you're not. [NHL, NHL, NBA?]
  • Back to Caps alums at the Convention, looks like Ryan Walter won't have any conflicts that weekend. [Kurtenblog]
  • Off-topic, for a moment - if you're a golfer, $99 worth of the game at Virginia Oaks for just $49 is a mighty fine deal. [SB Nation Team Pick]
  • Finally, in the spirit of Becca's infamous Hockey Questionnaire o' Doom, look for a new mini-feature later this afternoon that'll help kill a little time between now and training camp.
