Your savory breakfast links:

  • It was Media Day out at Kettler, and the Caps did a lot of talking:
  • Uncle Ted had a big announcement - Monumental Sports is joining forces with CSN and NBC Universal to provide a new platform to serve up scads of DC sports goodness. [Monumental (video), RMNB, WaPo, CSNMA]
  • How many goals could Alex Ovechkin score over his career? A lot. Like a lot a lot. Almost the most, even. [TSN]
  • Brett Connolly is still working to find a defined role with the Caps. But not to worry - he knows what he needs to do and just needs to actually do it. [CSNMA]
  • Speaking of just doing it, the team needs Tom Wilson to step up his offensive game, pronto. [WaPo]
  • Analytics versus eyeballs - the Caps use a little of both to evaluate their players. [WaPo, NoVa Caps]
  • Finally, happy 31st birthday to Mike Green and happy 51st birthday to Todd Krygier.
