Tuesday Caps Clips

Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Thoughts on the blueline (you can probably guess on whom they center), less newsworthy stuff and more.

Bruce Bennett

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Lots of thoughts, and a bunch of 'em are about the Caps, their captain, their blueline and accountability. [CBC]
  • Lane Lambert brings experience and rounds out a coaching staff with plenty of it (for a dramatic change). [Dump 'N Chase]
  • If the Caps were to entertain the notion of moving Mike Green, what might they reasonably expect in return? (Spoiler alert: less than he's actually worth on the ice.) [Rink]
  • How will the two new guys on the blueline impact the kids trying to get there? [BrooksLaichyear (with our take on the subject here)]
  • Three reasons the Caps will be back in the playoff hunt next season. [Stars and Sticks]
  • Aaron Volpatti will be the 25th most-impactful Cap in 2014-15 (guess "impact" is open to interpretation). [CSNW]
  • Hey, D.C., it could be worse. Hey, Caps fans... it is. Shrug. [CBS DC]
  • Give blood, meet Joel Ward. Win-win. [Caps Outsider, who also has coverage of Red Rocker tryouts here and here]
  • As has been the case with some frequency during her tennis career, Maria Kirilenko has once again lost at love and now is back to playing singles rather than mixed doubles. [RMNB (with more on her now-ex, who seems to be taking it really hard), Puck Daddy, Bog, CSNW, probably a bunch of other folks but you get the point]
  • In sappier, err, happier couples news, Brooks Laich is sappier, err, happier. [RMNB]
  • Finally, happy 46th birthday to Brad Schlegel. Calder Candidate Brad Schlegel.
