Your savory breakfast links:

  • NHL free agency opens up at noon today, and here's an overview of what it means for the Caps. [CI (Carrera), CSN Washington (video), and don't forget our Salary Cap page for a snapshot of what the Caps have committed and to whom (y'know, in case CapGeek is down or something)]
  • The Caps aren't going to trade Semyon Varlamov, so it's Washington or the KHL for the young netminder. [ESPN (Burnside), with more on Varlygate at Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Thoughts on the goalie situation, generally, from our favorite goalie-centric Hershey Bears blog. [Stack The Pads]
  • Karl Alzner's agent says there's "a gap" between the two sides in negotiating, which is mildly encouraging in that Alzner's gap control is outstanding. [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • The Caps have bought out the final year of Tyler Sloan's contract and haven't made an offer to Scott Hannan... [WashTimes (Whyno)]
  • ... or Matt Bradley... [RMNB, with a tribute to Brads at Chirps]
  • ... or Marco Sturm... [CW (Whyno)]
  • ... or Jason Arnott. [CI (Carrera)]
  • Hey, and don't forget that it's free agent frenzy for the Hershey Bears too (re-signing Sean Collins looks to be a Hershey/Washington priority). [Patriot-News (Leone)]
  • Michal Neuvirth, by the tens. [Peerless]
  • A glance at the guys up front. [KOL]
  • Mike Knuble did a phoner on Overtime the other night... [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • ...but if you listen to only one Caps radio interview this year, make it this in-studio chat with Mike Green, at home in Calgary. It's stellar. And you'll never guess who's coming to his golf tournament. [FAN960 Radio]
  • Finally, happy 53rd birthday to John Barrett.
