Your savory breakfast links:

  • With the lucky number 13 pick, the Caps select...
  • Brian MacLellan was happy to talk about the pick and some other things... [Monumental (video)]
  • ... and unless 29 other teams hate Mikhail Grabovski as much as Steve Simmons does, it would seem that he's likely going to be "former Capital Mikhail Grabovski" real soon. [WaPo, NBC4, CSNW, RMNB]
  • Before the Draft got underway, there was the stuff from before the Draft got underway. [Rink, Monumental video (interview with Ross Mahoney), Dump n' Chase (and again), WaPo, CSNW]
  • Lane Lambert it is, and now the coaching staff is complete. [Capitals, WaPo, NBC4]
  • Well, almost complete. [THW]
  • One of the new coaches, Mitch Korn, has plenty of advice to give. [In Goal Magazine]
  • If GMBM is in a tradin' mood, here are some chips he might barter with. [NBC4]
  • Play out this contract and call it a career; so sayeth the mama. [RMNB]
  • Back to Grabo (sorta), while he was being bought out last summer, the Caps were parting ways with a too-costly second-line center in Mike Ribeiro who now is being bought out this summer while the Caps are possibly parting ways with a too-costly second-line center in Grabo. Circle of life, hakuna matata, etc. [Puck Daddy]
  • Finally, happy 47th birthday to the well-traveled Patrice Lefebvre.
