Your savory breakfast links:

  • "Our goal is to be the best that we can be. There’s still growth. I think we had a good year, but good is the enemy of great. We’ve got to find a way to be great somehow." Barry Trotz spoke at the draft about the team's focus as the new season gears up. [WaPo]
  • Oh hai there Free Agency... [CSNW (video)]
    • ... and farewell Mike Green , the only player ever to wear 52 for the Caps. [Peerless]
    • He has a particular set of skills, you know. [THN, and again]
    • Here's a report on free agency for our Metro neighbors in Western Pennsylvania. [Pens Labyrinth]
    • And the Bears are also looking to restock. Via Tim Leone, here's the first two of five rankings of available free agents in the AHL. [81-100, 61-80]
  • Congrats are in order for Justin Peters, wed this weekend and some of his teammates in attendance. [RMNB]
  • At least one of new draftee Colby Williams' friends in Regina is excited, like, super-duper excited, that her buddy got the call. [Psychology Busking]
  • Finally, happy 67th birthday to Rick Smith, and happy 28th birthday to Joe Finley.
