Your savory breakfast links:

  • Day 2 of Development Camp is in the books, and there's lots to talk about:
    • First, from the mouths of the developees themselves... [Monumental video (Rinkside updateStephensonKoudysCopleyCajkovsky), WNST (Bowey)]
    • ...and from their keyboards. [Caps (Bowey Blog Day 2Copley Blog Day 2)]
    • All eyes are on 2013 1st-round draft pick Andre Burakovsky, as he looks to turn a strong OHL season into a rookie campaign in the NHL. [Caps OTWaPoWashTimes]
    • Of course, the eyes of those in the land down under are trained on their (sort of) native son, Nathan Walker. [WaPoSMH]
    • The team has made it clear that they want Philipp Grubauer to get in a bit more time in Hershey next season, and he's prepared to do just that. [NBC4]
    • Meanwhile, Garrett Haar would like very much to join Grubauer in the AHL and is setting his sights on a spot with the Bears. [Patriot-News]
    • The Penn State contingent is strong at this year's development cap, with Patrick Koudys and Zach Saar representing. [Patriot-News]
    • Olie Kolzig opens up about his reasons for stepping back and on finding a new role within the Caps' organization. [Monumental video]
    • Poor little prospects. All they wanted to do was experience the Battle of the Beltways at Nats Park... but Mother Nature had other plans. [Caps OT]
    • More from Day Two of Camp. [Peerless]
  • Fun fact: Brooks Orpik may not be quite as bad as some people want to make him out to be. Wait...are we allowed to say that? [Rink]
  • He also may just fill a need in the Caps' lineup. [Stars and Sticks]
  • After a busy first month with the Caps, Barry Trotz is starting to settle in, and talks about creating a family atmosphere with his new team. Aww. [WaPoCSNW (video)]
  • We've heard tales of the props new goalie coach Mitch Korn likes to use in practice; now we get to see them in action. [CSNW]
  • The Caps may say otherwise, but rumors are swirling that Detroit is eager to get Mike Green into a red jersey of a different kind. Back off, Wings. [MLive.comKK]
  • 33 years ago, Bobby Carpenter was drafted by the Caps; now the Can't-Miss Kid's kid is trying to forge his own path to the NHL. [National Post]
  • Finally, happy 48th birthday to Mike Richard.
