Your savory breakfast links:

  • With the first full week of the season in the books and the team enjoying an off-day Sunday, it was time for the pundits to ponder The Season So Far. [Peerless (and again, with visual aids), CSNW (Gormley), KOL, Caps Outsider, Chirps, and look for our Ups and Downs later this morning]
  • This unbeaten team knows there's still work to be done... [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • ... as Nicklas Backstrom is certainly aware... [CW (Whyno)]
  • ... and Tomas Vokoun might certainly agree. (Related: Vokoun is easily DC's Most Accessible Athlete this week. Maybe even this month.)  [DCEx (McNally), CI (Carrera), CSNW (Gormley)]
  • Marcus Johansson has gone full-on Beast Mode.  Maybe Michael Morse should lend him an a-ha CD. [CW (Whyno)]
  • The Hershey Bears ushered in the tenth season at the Giant Center with unforgettable specialty sweaters ... [SHoE (pics)]
  • ... and this equally unforgettable home-opener video. [YouTube]
  • Caps goaltending prospect Brandon Anderson is switching junior teams.  He was traded from the Lethbridge Hurricanes to the Brandon Wheat Kings. [Brandon Wheat Kings]
  • Finally, happy 27th birthday to Sami Lepisto.
