Your savory breakfast links:

  • George McPhee spoke to the media out at Kettler yesterday. Short version: he likes his team and Brooks Laich is their second-line center... [Monumental (video), WaPo, NBC4, CSNW, DSP, PHT]
  • ... which may not be as bad as you might think. [RMNB]
  • Plenty more coverage from the first day of Development Camp:
  • DevCamp continues today with Team Red scheduled to be on the ice at 9:15 and Team White at 10:50.
  • In transactional news, the Caps signed a trio of (presumably Hershey-bound depth) players yesterday in Tyson Strachan, David Leggio and Matt Watkins. [WaPo, Patriot-News (with more on additional Hershey pick-up Derek Whitmore here), CSNW, RMNB, PHT]
  • A couple of fond farewells to Matt Hendricks... one of which is stranger than the other. [WaPo, DC Sports Bog]
  • So far so meh in free agency. [Puck Daddy]
  • To the untrained eye, it might appear that Burakovsky didn't get selected by the CHL team he had selected, and so he's taking his puck and going home. But surely that's not what happened. [Buzzing the Net]
  • Hockey participation is on the rise in a big way locally... but down slightly nationally. [USoH]
  • Finally, happy 47th birthday to Mike Richard.
