  • Ross Detwiler (probably... or maybe Tyler Clippard... let's go with Clip) doesn't think the Caps' captain is a particularly complete player. [WaPo]
  • Nor is he a complete Instagrammer... where are the gratuitous food pics?! [RMNB]
  • Arlington roads could be safer, wouldn't you say, random denizen Karl Alzner? [NBC4 (via @TyAnderson9)]
  • The Bears got outscored 10-2 over the weekend, which no doubt made it tough to pick three stars. [Patriot-News (but they've got plenty of stars off the ice)]
  • Nice pics from the AHL Showcase, including what Philipp Grubauer might look like in a Caps sweater (wait, what?). [SHoE]
  • Catching up with CoCo. [Caps Outsider]
  • Here's a story about a local Olympian (sorta) that you might not have heard. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 48th birthday to Byron Dafoe, happy 63rd to Andre Peloffy, and happy 28th to Jeff Schultz.
