Your savory breakfast links:

  • Remembering the most memorable goal of them all. [Peerless]
  • The Caps will have to hope that Nicklas Backstrom's offseason surgery doesn't impact his game too much - oddly enough, their depth at center would be impacted by losing their top guy. [CSNMA]
  • That lack of depth could be why they don't win the Cup this year. Don't worry, though... no one else is winning it either. [USA Today]
  • After being eased into the lineup last year, expect Andre Burakovsky to play a bigger role on this season's squad. [Stars and Sticks]
  • Taking a look at the historical goal differentials of each team. Boy, 2010 was a fun year, wasn't it? [THN]
  • Ranking the top forwards, and the top 30 keeper league players of any position, to help round out your fantasy hockey rosters. [Puck DaddyTHN]
  • Ranking the top 10 all-time European-born NHL forwards. [THW]
  • And ranking the powers in the ECHL. [Frozen Futures]
  • Alex Ovechkin may have been one of a few to respectfully stick, but Team Russia will still be fined after the majority of his teammates left the ice during the anthems at the World Championships. [CSNMA]
  • Mike Vogel caught up with Caps' prospect Caleb Herbert at this year's development camp. [Monumental video]
  • Finally, happy 54th birthday to Dave Tippett.
