  • Lots of answers, not so many questions for the composition of the 2013-2014 Caps squad. [WaPo, CSNW, WashTimesPostExpress]
  • Oh hai there new Metropolitan mates. How might the Caps stack up? [Eye on Hockey, NHL.com, The Hockey Daily]
  • Braden Holtby believes... [CSNW]
  • ...and also unleashed a fantastic new mask.  Opponents would be well-advised to heed the warnings and give a wide berth to the caged and quite possibly contagious Holtbeast. [Eye on Hockey, Caps Overtime, DC Sports Kings]
  • Uncle Ted has Alex Ovechkin's back, and apparently a shiny new pair of crutches. [Ted's Take]

  • Recounting the story of Eric Fehr's long strange trip back to the team that originally drafted him.  No, not from Finland, silly.  From Winkler, Manitoba.  [Dump'n'Chase]
  • Word from Russia is that Evgeny Kuznetsov underwent shoulder surgery in Munich. The surgery was said to be successful and he should be ready to return to the ice in four-to-six bizarre and contradictory press conferences weeks. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Kuzya! [RMNB]
  • Peerless' periodic- and player-prognostos perpetuate apace. [Johansson, Calcium, Potassium]
  • Who's got two thumbs and the shotgun seat for Connor McDavid's age-16 season? This guy.   [Buzzing the Net]
