Wednesday Roundup: Canadian Ovechkenvy

Caps Quick Hits

As noted yesteday, the Caps waived Rico Fata... According to Mike Vogel, Tomas Flesichmann will be called up in the near future and the trade winds may be blowing through Capland soon as well (though Vogel professes no insider knowledge on this front)... The WaPo recaps the road trip and shows that Chris Clark has his captainly duties of regurgitating tired sports clich├ęs down to a tee: ""You can't make the playoffs in the first 10 games," he said. "But you can definitely miss the playoffs in the first 10 games."... The WTimes must be working everyone on GOP GOTV, as they've got no new Caps coverage... There was been plenty of Ovechkenvy (or Lovechkin) in the air during the the Caps recently-concluded Canadian swing and On Frozen Blog has compiled the links...Speaking of AO, isn't this like saying "Take your pick: Megan Fox or Scarlett Johansson"?

Thread of the Day:
Old School Caps Moments:

If you love Dale Hunter (and who other than Caps fans and Don Cherry does?), you'll love this. My personal favorite is the hit at 0:43 on Joe Nieuwendyk. Ouch.
Hat tip to miller10 for the link.
