  • What do the Blackhawks and Bruins have that the Caps don't? Other than that, I mean. [WaPo]
  • If the Caps can't trade Jeff Schultz (reunion time?), would they buy him out? [CSNW]
  • Good read on the Caps' transition from dominant puck-possession team to... something other than that. [RLS]
  • How on earth did Don Cherry not get any Jack Adams votes for his role in fixing Alex Ovechkin? [RMNB]
  • Number four on the prospect countdown: Philipp Grubauer. [CSNW]
  • Ball hockey in England on Canada Day? Do it, Ovi. [ipetitions]
  • Woof woof woof woof, woof woof woof? Woof. [Caps Outsider (not a Jay Beagle post, btw)]
  • Dima sighting! Dmitry Orlov is home in Novokuznetsk, assisting Sergei Bobrovsky with his goaltendending "master-class." [TVN via GoogleTrans, and ADORBS/60 video at the link]
