Your contemplative, philosophical morning links:

  • Did the Caps’ window actually technically already close... and was their Cup a product of luck that has simply run out? [Rink]
  • Three things we were talking about yesterday when we were talking about the Caps. [Rink]
  • So the Caps, for the third-straight year since winning that treasured Cup, find themselves out after the first round. What now? [WaPo, PHT]
  • The team is certainly frustrated about another first-round exit. [WTOP]
  • That pressing Alex Ovechkin question will be top of mind for a lot of people. [WashTimes]
  • The Caps may have lost in large part because of a bad combo of age and injuries. [NHL,]
  • So maybe the answer is to get younger. [Caps Outsider]
  • If nothing else, they at least need to start thinking about the next era - because even after Ovechkin re-signs, his era is eventually coming to an end. [THW]
  • As for Ovechkin’s immediate plans, right now they don’t include this year’s World Championships, as he recovers from whatever injury was plaguing him. [NHL]
  • A few leftovers from the series (and season) ending loss on Sunday night. [Caps (and again), RMNB, S&S]
  • Finally, happy 64th birthday to Robert Picard, and happy birthday to Michael Latta, who turns the big 3-0 today.
