Your savory breakfast links:

  • Out at Kettler, Development Camp Group A hits the ice at 9:00 this morning, followed by Group B at 10:20 and Camp's first scrimmage at 3:00. Here's coverage from yesterday's goings on at KCI (prospect-related and otherwise):
    • New Cap Joel Ward had his day with the media. [106.7 The Fan (audio), Puck Daddy, DCEx (McNally), CI (Carrera), OFB, WashTimes (Whyno)]
    • Will Cody Eakin be the first of this year's Development Campers to play an NHL game? He sure hopes so. [WashTimes (Whyno), CSN Washington (O'Halloran), CRtC]
    • Dmitry Orlov (sure to be among Eakin's toughest competition for "first NHL game") is also looking to make an impression. [CI (Carrera), (Osadchenko) via GoogleTrans]
    • Day Two through the pixels of Patrick Wey and Stan Galiev. [Capitals]
    • When most guys talk of their former teams, it's because they simply no longer play for those clubs. But for Sam Carrier, it's because the team no longer exists. [Rink Rebel]
    • Steffen Soberg is ready and willing. Able? We'll see. [WAMU 88.5 (yes, that's an NPR affiliate), Rink Rebel]
    • Travis Boyd faces the media... [Caps365 (video)]
    • ... as does Patrick Koudys. [Caps365 (video)]
    • Cameron Burt isn't big and he isn't young. But he is inspiring. [KOL]
    • Pics from the day...[bridgetds (Group A, Group B), RMNB, Caps in Pictures (Group A, Group B)]
    • ... and a few more general observations, audio clips and assorted whatnot. [106.7 The Fan (audio), RtR, CRtC, Caps Outsider, CRtC]
  • It's a make-or-break year for a lot of folks in the organ-i-zation. [WashTimes (Daly)]
  • Eric Fehr talks about the trade that sent him out of town and his former team. [DC Sports Bog]
  • Fehr's departure was, in part, necessitated by the addition of Ward, who did a radio hit on LaVar and Dukes yesterday. [106.7 The Fan (audio)]
  • Tales of The Captain's welcome call to Troy Brouwer. [CI (Carrera), SportingNews]
  • It'll be nice to see Ward and Brouwer joining the hit parade, eh? [WashTimes (Daly)]
  • Yesterday's non-story story? Dave Prior hasn't spoken with Braden Holtby since the Tomas Vokoun signing. [CW (Whyno)]
  • So why isn't Vokoun a Red Wing now anyway? [Puck Daddy, HOTH, PHT]
  • Detroit's loss (if you care to call it that) is the Caps' gain, of course, and what the Caps have gained is an elite netminder... on paper and for fantasy hockey, at least. [ESPN]
  • Turning the #fancystats spotlight on new Caps Jeff Halpern and Roman Hamrlik. [RLS]
  • A vote of confidence for Mattias Sjogren from Claude Lemieux. [ via GoogleTrans]
  • It's Christmas in July! AO for your tree! [Hallmark via Alex Ovetjkin]
  • Happy 35th birthday to noted KHL pugilist Darcy Verot, happy 48th birthday to The Can't Miss Kid, and happy 68th birthday to Bill Collins.
  • Finally, leave it to me to forget an anniversary - yesterday, this l'il blog turned six years old. Thanks to all of you who have made and continue to make it worth the effort (especially you under-appreciated folks who share the masthead with me). Cheers, all.
