Your savory breakfast links:

  • If you're going to read one "What to do with Mike Green?" post today, make it this one. [Rink]
  • The Caps gave up some shorties last year, but you've gotta crack some eggs to make pancakes. Or something. [RMNB]
  • Barry Trotz has options - and holes - up front... [DSP, with our take on the topic from last week here]
  • ... including a pair of options (Evgeny Kuznetsov and Marcus Johansson) that seem destined to try to plug that pesky second-line center hole. [Stars & Sticks]
  • Dmitry Orlov leads off the top-15 most impactful Caps of 2014-15. [CSNW]
  • "G" is for goals, apparently. [Peerless]
  • You won't believe what Alexander Radulov had to say about his former coach. (How's that for a tease?) [Chesnokov]
  • Nicklas Backstrom is gonna play a little puck today. [RMNB]
  • The shoulder injury that is keeping Andre Burakovsky out of Team Sweden's evaluation camp isn't serious, and the team expects him to be ready to be rushed to the NHL for training camp next month. [CSNW]
  • Jeff Halpern keeps waiting by the phone, but it's not ringing. Yet. [CSNW]
  • Finally, happy 37th birthday to Jeff Friesen, happy 51st to Mike Siltala and happy 56th to Howard Walker.
