Your savory breakfast links:

  • Herndon, VA native Joe Snively is a product of the “Ovechkin Effect” on local youth hockey; now he’s hoping to inspire the next generation of DC-area kids. [Caps, NHL, WaPo]
  • Scoping out the goalie situation at this year’s development camp. [FiCP]
  • One of those goalies, 2018 draftee Mitchell Gibson, is giving us an inside look at the week with his development camp diary. [Caps]
  • Hear from assistant GM Ross Mahoney and director of player development Steve Richmond about this year’s camp. [Caps video (Mahoney, Richmond)]
  • It feels impossible, but might the Capitals be able to squeeze new deals for both Jakub Vrana and Andre Burakovsky into next year’s budget? Vogs breaks it down. [Caps]
  • Of course, if they’re going to do that (and even if they don’t) they probably can’t afford to do much once free agency opens Monday. [WashTimes]
  • They might be able to upgrade the fourth line, however, and here are some potential targets. [NoVa Caps]
  • That tough cap situation and key RFAs to re-sign makes the Caps prime targets for not just one, but two offer sheets. Yikes. [TSN]
  • Reflecting back on the 15-year career of Brooks Orpik. [THW]
  • After years of animosity, shifting gears on Orpik was a complicated process for many a Penguin-hating Caps fan. [NoVa Caps]
  • Finally, happy 52nd birthday to Patrice Lefebvre.
