Your savory breakfast links:

  • Whither Tom Poti? As we were busy discussing this yesterday, his agent had something to say. [CI (Carrera)]
  • The discussion is strictly academic now, but why didn't Karl Alzner receive any offer sheets? [DC Ex (McNally)]
  • Alexander Semin would be perfect for a young team that is in a "win now" mode and also keeping an eye to the future. A team like the Capitals, for example. So enough with the trade talk already... [PHT]
  • ...but perhaps he's due for some new assignments on the ice... [RLS]
  • the Caps look to test the strength of the core they've built these past few years. [Peerless]
  • Somber Mike Green is somber... [Caps365 (video)]
  • ... and also shouldn't be traded. [CRtC]
  • If we're talkin' puck possession, we're talkin' Jay Beagle. You could look it up. [TSN (Cullen)]
  • Matt Hendricks was the recipient of the sole body check dished out in three periods of play at his charity hockey game. Chirp chirp! [MinnyCapsFan]
  • It's Garrett Haar's world - he just lets us live in it. [CSN Washington (Raby), Capitals Overtime]
  • Say hey Christian Hanson, an intriguing depth signing. [Rock the Red]
  • Starting at the 19 minute mark of this podcast, Russian hockey journalist Andrey Osadchenko and Nucksblogger Thom Drance discuss Semyon Varlamov, Alex Ovechkin, and the North American aspirations of Evgeny Kuznetsov. [Canucks Army (audio)]
  • Know Your Goat. [Just Talking (audio)]
  • Congratulations are in order for Stingrays (now former) head coach Cail MacLean, who takes a step up the coaching ladder after accepting a position as assistant coach for the AHL Abbotsford Heat.  John Walton reminds us that Cail scored the first-ever goal in Giant Center's inaugural season. [Live 5 News, Calgary Flames]
  • A great way to stay cool on Saturday would be to spend the afternoon at Kettler at the Dave Fay Memorial Charity Hockey Game. But first, find out why he's worth remembering. [WashTimes (Schad)]
  • Finally, happy 43rd birthday to Brad Schlegel. Er, that would be Calder Candidate Brad Schlegel.
