  • Just. Wow.
  • The team received their championship rings at a private dinner at The Palm, and they are beauties. [NoVa Caps, @keeperofthecup, ALLCAPS, WaPo, BarDown, Barstool Sports, PHT, NBCSW]
  • (If you want your own bling, it’s available for a small consideration.) [Caps Outsider]
  • Alex Ovechkin had no words. And a big bear hug for Ted Leonsis. [RMNB]
  • The team even remembered the players’ distaff half with lovely matching necklaces for the ladies. [RMNB, @nastyashubskaya]
  • The Caps have two more formalities to observe before the new season gets underway - the red carpet walk/banner raising on Wednesday evening, and the small matter of Tom Wilson’s disciplinary hearing, now set to be an in-person meeting with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety in New York City on Wednesday morning. Sigh. [NHL]
  • Let the speculation begin - how many games for the Ten Train? [PHT, WashTimes, Sportsnet, TSN]
  • And how are Wilson’s teammates responding to this situation? Carefully. [NBCSW]
  • Season previews in overdrive:
  • It’s about the emotion. And the love. [Deadspin]
  • Who’s the best player, and the best team in the League right now? [ESPN]
  • Hello Power Rankings, it’s been a while. [NBCSW, PHT, NBCSB, TSN, ESPN,
  • Bring it, we’re ready to defend our title, say the Caps. [Yahoo, Puck Prose]
  • Are you sure? say a bunch of teams that have loaded up for the challenge. [PHT]
  • Metro preview - it’ll be the Sid and Ovi Show once again. [SN]
  • Our SBN pals in Dallas try to parse out the Eastern Conference. [Defending Big D]
  • Finally, what would you do with the Cup if you had it for a day? [NBCSW]
  • Looking good, fellas! And oh hai there, Philipp Grubauer.
