Your savory breakfast links:

● The Stanley Cup Finals (finally) get underway tonight, and they're not without Caps ties, including an ex-Cap coaching on each side. [WashTimes]

Chris Bourque needed a change of scenery; we'll see if it helps. [Dump n' Chase, WashTimes]

● Speaking of changes of scenery, will Alexander Semin be getting one? [WaPo (video)]

● The day in year-end reviews:

Jason Chimera... [RMNB, Peerless]

○ ... Michal Neuvirth... [RtR]

○ ... and Troy Brouwer. [CSNW]

● Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo. [KOL (and for more on the link's tease, click here)]

● Not-quite 30 hockey thoughts on the eve of yet another Caps-less Stanley Cup Final. [Frankovic]

● Setting the table. The round table, of course. [Japers', District Sports Page (Part I)]

● Catching up with Anson Carter (whose name appears on this site for the second time in two days). [Capitals]

● Counting down the top-ten centers in Caps history... and forgetting Bengt Gustafsson? [THW]

● Team Russia had a fairly subdued and politico-intensive gold medal celly in Moscow, but we are pleased to note that (a) the Captain seems to have briefly slipped the leash of his Gillette overlords and that (b) Sasha Syomin is adept at violating the personal space of his teammates wherever he fares. [Life News (video), RMNB]

● Finally, happy 58th birthday to Greg Joly, the first pick in Caps history at number one overall in 1974.
