Daily Washington Capitals news and notes: Centermen in the spotlight, productive forward/d-man pairings, developing Jakub Vrana and more.

Your savory breakfast links:

  • Should Marcus Johansson be worried? [Rink]
  • At the very least he should come to Kettler prepared to do battle - centermen will be the center of attention at camp. [Yoush's Take]
  • Perhaps there will be a new forward joining Matt Niskanen at the top of this list next year (with bonus Flash sighting). [HB]
  • Evaluating playoff potential by goal differential. Intriguing. [Pro Ice Hockey]
  • Prospect watch:
    • Jakub Vrana won't know until training camp (and perhaps a preseason game or two) if he'll be in North America or Sweden this season, but if he stays with Linköpings HC, his linemates will be Mattias Sjögren and fellow former Bear Jacob Micflikier. [, with translation by Hockeyramblings]
    • With Sonny Milano, Johnny Gaudreau, and now Kevin Hayes leaving Boston College, the Eagles will be leaning hard on Caps prospect Zachary Sanford. [BC Interruption]
    • The more you know - Garrett Haar was a pretty good hockey player back in his hometown of Huntington Beach, CA.  A pretty good roller hockey player, that is. This interview is worth a listen. [Major League Roller Hockey, via YouTube]
  • Finally, you can have Troy Brouwer's Chicago pad... but he is keeping his aura. [Chicago Tribune]
