Your savory breakfast links:

  • Don't think we won't link to "Alex Ovechkin, Hart winner" posts all summer as long as they're there. Because we will. Here are some more. [Ted's Take, CP, Y! Sports]
  • Ovi, just remember: laces out. (Alternatively, "So does that make Slapshot Snowflake?") [CBS DC]
  • A look at how the team was built (is "mediocrely" a word?). [Peerless]
  • Speaking of building, with the 23rd pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, the Caps select... the best available player? [Patriot-News (and many thanks to Tim Leone for including us in the piece)]
  • The Caps will play a preseason game against Winnipeg for all the mac and cheese. Or something. [NHL]
  • If Mike Ribeiro walks, might the Caps look to Danny Briere, Tuomo Ruutu or Shawn Horcoff to replace him? [CSNW]
  • The Penguins' swift (albeit not early) exit from the playoffs was delightful and... familiar? [RMNB, which also has something worth a click on Joey, err, Aleister Ochvekin, err... just go read it]
  • 2012-13 was a very fashionable year for the Reading Royals. [Caps Outsider]
  • Finally, happy 49th birthday to Bob Rouse.
