Your savory breakfast links:

● Prior to yesterday, Caps fans knew Minnetonka, Minnesota's Jack Hillen as the dude who took an Alex Ovechkin slapper in the face. Now they know him as a Cap. [Caps365 (audio), Dump 'n Chase, WaPo, WashTimes, DCEx, CSNW (and again), NBC4 Washington, RMNB. Hockey Hourly, DSP, RtR]

● The Caps released their Development Camp schedule and list of attendees yesterday, and there are plenty of kids worth watching on the list. [Capitals, Dump 'n Chase, WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW, DCEx, SB Nation DC, RtR, FanPost]

GMGM isn't really feeling this year's crop of free agents... [CSNW, SB Nation DC]

● ... and neither is his boss. [Ted's Take]

● Related: could Alexander Semin end up as a Cap after all? [WashTimes]

● The original Caps Johansson sits down with Vogs (watch it for the comments on Caps' first round pick Filip Forsberg). [Capitals Overtime]

● These aren't your father's Caps. Or your older brother's. Or yours from last year. [Sick, Unbelievable]

● FYI, as a general rule, if you post a dozen old school Caps cards, I'll link to it. [THW]

● Remember when Andre Agassi wouldn't play Wimbledon for three years because he didn't feel like conforming to the dress code? This is like that, except not at all. [SB Nation DC, RtR]

● New Bear alert: Mathieu Beaudoin (who's actually an old Bear). [Patriot-News]

● Finally, happy 40th birthday to Mike Knuble (man, it's dusty in here...), and happy 236th birthday to the good ol' U.S. of A.
