Your savory breakfast links:

  • John Carlson has won gold for his country once; can he do it again? [CSNW (and again)]
  • Vegas pegs the Caps at 25/1 to win the Cup. Eh, there are worse values on the board. []
  • Karl Alzner easily has the best busty-lady-with-an-anchor-in-front-of-a-ship-at-sea tat among Caps blueliners. We think. [WaPo]
  • Do any current Caps have a shot at franchise longevity records? [Peerless]
  • Mathieu Perreault and Joel Ward may be underutilized (which dovetails nicely with our piece from yesterday). [Hockey Prospectus]
  • Oh, hey, maybe the Caps should see what's up with Mikhail Grabovski. [PHT]
  • Mike Green, Garth Brooks, good cause, etc. [No.52]
  • Habs goalie Carey Price helped raise some dough for former Tri-Cities mentor Olie Kolzig's autism foundation at Kolzig's annual charity golf soiree. Merci, monsieur Price, but Holtby's got next. [Montreal Gazette, TVA Sports (link in French)]
  • Congrats to the newest Red Rockers. [@capsredrockers, Monumental (video) Caps Outsider]
  • Caps prospect Garrett Haar is headed to Portland of the WHL after leaving Western Michigan... [Winterhawks]
  • ... and 'Hawksbloggers have questions. [Oregon Live]
  • One-on-one with Tyler Lewington. [Monumental (video)]
  • G'day, Nathan Walker. []
  • Friend of the Blog Rob Vollman asked us to review his Hockey Abstract book, and we hope to get to that soon... but in the meantime, you should go buy it, either in paperback or PDF.
  • Finally, happy eighth blogiversary to the inimitable and indispensible Peerless.
