Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Lockout officially ended last night after the players signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the League... [WashTimes]
  • ... which was followed by the NHL finally releasing its 2013 schedule. [Japers' Rink, Dump 'n Chase, Puck Daddy, WaPo, WashTimes, DCEx, NBC4, WTOP, RMNB, Sick Unbelievable, Puckhead]
  • Oh, and welcome to Fan Appreciation Week (which does, in fact, include free nachos). [Capitals]
  • With the freeze on transactions over, the Caps are expected to bring Eric Fehr back into the fold, assuming F16 is cleared for takeoff. [Japers' Rink, WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW]
  • Alright, this is cool enough to get its own bullet - Fehr's HPK fans bid adieu. [YouTube (and because I had to GIF it... this)]
  • I'm not sure about his line combos, but let's not bury the lede - Bob McKenzie is reporting that Brooks Laich will miss the first week or two of the season. [@TSNBobMcKenzie]

  • Back to the CBA stuff, here's some CBA stuff:
  • Five questions heading into camp. ("Why is this season different from all other seasons?") [CSNW]
  • RtR sees your five questions and ups it with 27 Thoughts. Good stuff. [RtR]
  • And how about another ten? [gofivehole]
  • If snazzy videos are enough to win you back as a fan, welcome back. [RMNB]
  • John Walton caught up with noted hockey fan and all-around good dude Ross Detwiler. [Caps365 (video)]
  • Good luck to Mike Knuble in his tryout with Detroit. [CSNW]
  • It's win number one for Philipp Grubauer in his second AHL start. [Patriot-News, SHoE, Capitals Outsider]
  • Speaking of the Bears, check out the Old Gray Lady showing some love. [NYT]
