Your savory breakfast links:

Mike Green is confident that he can be every bit as productive in the future as he was during his Norris Finalist seasons. Should he be? [WaPo]

● "When asked why Semin was still on the market, one GM broke it down quite succinctly: '[He] wants too much money.'" Alrighty then. [ESPN ($), and for why Semin deserves a second chance (even though it says here he's had at least a second and a third), THW]

● Checking in on summer in the Southeast Division. [CBSSports.com]

Mike Ribeiro believes he'll be a great fit in Washington, which is encouraging... right? [HomerMcFanboy]

Psych and Wicked? [Smashfest (h/t sk8)]

● Now you can get your very own Alex Ovechkin 4GB USB flash drive (it was 8GB up until the 2010 Olympics or so, but... yeah). [Capitals Outsider]

● On a slightly more serious AO note, some 411 on his SportsCenter "My Wish" segment. [DSP]

Tom Wilson was mic'd up for a DevCamp practice (which for some reason reminded me that he's the Caps' first North American first-round pick since John Carlson in 2008). [Capitals Overtime]

● Speaking of camp and first rounders, Filip Forsberg showed off some two-way play and vocal leadership last week. [RMNB, with more on Forsberg's introduction to the Caps' biggest rivalry here]

● The Caps' new ECHL affiliate in Reading has a goalie coach with Hershey ties (but probably not like this). [Patriot-News]

● The day in NHL labor chatter. [CBC, Gazette, SI]

● Finally, happy 54th birthday Glen Currie.
