Wednesday Morning Morsels

Tarik profiles Karl Alzner (so does Burnaby Now), Corey Masisak has a piece on Andrew Gordon and Andrew Joudrey, FOX Sports' Jeff Gordon looks at nine NHL rookies (including Nicklas Backstrom), NHL Tournament of Logos wants to know which is your favorite Caps logo of all-time, and Alex Ovechkin's jersey outsold Sidney Crosby's (but not Anze Kopitar's?!) in August.

It's beginning to look a lot like hockey season, isn't it?

You forgot to mention a great lead article in this week's Hockey News. It applauds Ted's recognition of our blogging community in covering the Caps. You probably can't link it, but it's a great read and gives due praise to all you guys.

I'll second or third the thanks in advance to anyone that attends the scrimmage and provides some updates.

JP - Thanks for the heads up to the article in the Burnaby paper.

About the rookie profiles, I always read quotes recognizing that they may be used out of context...that one about Backstrom and assimilating sure fits that category.

On a different note, here's an article profiling Denver's upcoming season including info about a defensive prospect buried deep on the Caps depth chart after the recent drafts: Andrew Thomas

JP - if you can download the reader I sent you a digital copy of THN (or you can just read what I wrote, but that's not as much fun...)

Oh, and I'll be up at the scrimmage today - I'll send you guys some pics if I get anything good!
