Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Caps’ 2016-2017 roster seems to be pretty well set as the first day of free agency opens, but if any changes are coming, we’ll know when we know... [WaPo, CSNMA (video)]
  • ... one position not yet filled is third-string goalie, ideally able to hold the net in Hershey pending any (waiver-free) fill-in duty in DC... [CSNMA]
  • ... and we may well be bidding adieu to the Ice Cheetah today, with word on the street that he’ll be able to command a three-year contract, elsewhere. [CSNMA (and again), NoVa Caps, FiCP]
  • Tom Wilson signed his new deal, $4m over two years. [Rink, WaPo, CSNMA, RMNB (and again), NoVa Caps]
  • Forward Zach Sill also signed a new deal, a two-year, two-way contract to stay with the organization through 2018. [Capitals, WaPo]
