Your savory breakfast links:

  • The future begins now... or something:
    • With their first rounder, the Caps went with Swedish forward (shocking, I know) Andre Burakovsky 23rd overall... [us, Monumental (video, video, video), WaPo, WashTimes, CSNW (video), NBC4, Patriot-News, Red Line Report, Peerless, RMNB (and again), Rink Rebel]
    • ... snagged blueliner Madison Bowey with the 54th pick... [us, Monumental (video), RMNB]
    • ... traded up for the last pick in the second round, where they took winger Zachary Sanford,... [us (with a brief overview of all the late-round picks), Monumental (video, video), RMNB]
    • ... landed rearguard Blake Heinrich in the fifth round... [RMNB (with a run down of all the late-round picks)]
    • ... center Brian Pinho in the sixth...
    • ... and defenseman Tyler Lewington in the seventh.
    • GMGM addressed the media on a number of highly relevant topics... [Monumental (video), WaPo, CSNW]
    • ... as did Ross Mahoney... [Monumental (video)]
    • ... and for general rundowns of the day as it unfolded, do check out Vogs' live blog here, Katie Carrera's here and Chuck Gormley's here.
    • Other thoughts on the day. [Capitals, Frankovic, RLS]
  • In other news out of Jersey, Adam Oates made it known that he was on the "Woo Vinny" committee... [Monumental (video), CSNW, with more on the idea at RMNB]
  • ... which is needed because the Caps will be letting Mike Ribeiro hit the free agent market. [RMNB, PHT]
  • Finally, happy 55th birthday to John Barrett.
