Your savory breakfast links:

  • Updates from yesterday’s practice, which was missing Alex Ovechkin (lower-body injury) and T.J. Oshie (personal day). [Caps video (Laviolette, Jensen, Carlson, Dowd), NHL, NBCSW, Reuters, NoVa Caps]
  • This year’s draft lottery will look a little different than past years, and expect more changes to take effect next summer as well. [NHL, NBCSW]
  • What is Alex Ovechkin’s goal ceiling this season? [S&S]
  • The trade deadline is just a few weeks away, but with the Caps’ salary cap situation it may be tough for Brian MacLellan to make any significant moves. [NBCSW]
  • Every year it seems some random, mediocre team has the Caps’ number... and this year it’s the Rangers. But it’s okay, because they only play them 7 billion more times. [THW]
  • Finally, happy 66th birthday to Doug Jarvis.
