Morning Reading List

*Tarik went back to school this week. Well, sort of. He sat in on a graduate-level sports management class at Georgetown taught by Capitals General Manager George McPhee for today's hard-copy edition.

*Remember how Coach Bruce Boudreau took a few young fans out for lunch yesterday? If you've been dying for more details, the Post's Reliable Source has them.

*NHL analyst Bill Clement wrote a column about Sergei Fedorov, "the best all-around Russian forward that's ever played in the NHL."

"Fedorov has been enigmatic. When he was young, he was loner. But now his interaction with two young Russian stars with the Capitals - Alexander Ovechkin and Alexander Semin - has been terrific and even in the short time he's been with Washington his influence on the two has been invaluable in their continued development."

*Puck Daddy Greg Wyshynski has one of the most entertaining interviews of the young season with Alexander Semin.

*Continuing the list of stories featuring Semin, the Canadian Press becomes the latest news outlet to take a look at the quiet Alex.

*The Capitals face the hot-start Sabres tomorrow in Buffalo, who are 6-2-2. But the Sabres are winless in their past three games heading into Saturday's contest after falling 5-2 to the Lightning Thursday.

Tampa Bay rookie Steven Stamkos recorded his first two NHL goals in the win. The 2008 No. 1 overall draft pick added an assist and was a plus-2 against the Sabres.

*Boudreau has signed on to publish his autobiography, with the book expected for October 2009.

In the system:
*Hershey's Keith Aucoin and Bryan Helmer return to their old stomping grounds in Albany with the Bears set to take on the River Rats tonight.

*Prospect Joel Broda was named to the WHL's roster for the 2008 ADT Canada Russia Challenge, which runs from Nov. 17 to Nov. 27.

Jordan beat me to it in the previous thread, but this interview with Semin should be a must read.

Wow you people are blog-ignorant.

The two best Caps-related pieces of the day are the above-mentioned interview with Alex Semin, and this analytical piece from Japers' Rink:

"The fastest I ever drove? About 160. Ovechkin and I were actually driving together on a highway at around 1 a.m. He was in his car, and I was in mine."

Greatest quote ever.

"What's so special about [Crosby]? I don't see anything special there. Yes, he does skate well, has a good head, good pass. But there's nothing else."

My favorite quote. That should go on a shirt.

Why add the Puck Daddy link and not Japers'? Weird. Credibility-damaging too.
