Your savory breakfast links:

  • Notes and assorted whatnot from yesterday out at Kettler:
  • George McPhee is apparently doing his job rather rigorously these days, and probably will be pretty busy over the next two weeks. Just a hunch. [NHL.com, WashTimes, WaPo, PHT, RMNB, Bar South]
  • Mike Knuble just wants to play... somewhere. [WashTimes, WaPo, NHL.com, CSNW]
  • Are the Caps shooting themselves in the foot with some of their lineup decisions? [Dump 'n Chase]
  • Wyshynski and Marek talk about how to fix the Caps. [Fan590 (audio, about 1/3 of the way through)]
  • Alan May chats Caps on the Sports Reporters. [ESPN980 (audio)]
  • Regarding that Rechlicz misconduct the other night. [D.C. Sports Bog, SB Nation DC]
  • If you're Alexander Semin, the good news is that your peers consider you to be "All-Star-caliber;" the bad news is... well, click through. [Puck Daddy]
  • I can buy "1a and 1b," but Alex Ovechkin "a distant fourth" behind Ilya Kovalchuk (last night notwithstanding)? C'mon. [ESPN]
  • "Perhaps the best solution would be to stop trying to change their offensive thoroughbreds into defensive plow horses and turn them loose to do what they do best." (Turn whom loose, exactly? That the Caps got defensive and then the goals dried up, rather than the other way around, is one of the great misconceptions in and around Capsland over the past couple of seasons.) [THN]
  • Practice? We're talkin' 'bout practice? [RtR]
  • The Caps have become unwatchable (but I'm guessing you're still watching). [StC]
  • Really interesting read about a fighter and a fight from up in Hershey. [Patriot-News, with more from Bears practice here]
  • Evgeny Kuznetsov knows that that to get a garbage goal, you go to the trash can. Oh, and he also apparently knows how to pop his shoulder back into its socket. Multiple times. [SovSport via Alex Ovetjkin]
  • "Washington vs. Hershey" in the same building in which The Beatles played their first U.S. concert. Mind = Blown.[Ghosts of DC]
  • Good on the Caps (and you all) for raising more than $350k (that's two-thirds of a Mathieu Perreault!) for charity at Casino Night. [CSNW]
  • Finally, happy 38th birthday to Martin Gendron, and it's also Jaromir Jagr's 40th birthday today.
