Thursday Morning Reading List

*CBC.ca becomes the latest news outlet to take notice of the other Alex. (The picture they have is pretty entertaining as well.)

*In case you missed it, Forbes released their annual ranking of NHL franchises yesterday. The Caps came in as the 26th most valuable according to the list and is valued at $160 million, while Toronto is No. 1 at $448 million.

*ESPN's EJ Hradek and Matt Barnaby discuss Ovechkin's slow start on their podcast 'Hockey Today'.

In the system:
*As some of you saw last night, Hershey ran into a very large speed bump and fell 6-0 to Hamilton. The Patriot News also recently had a column on goaltending prospect Bobby Goepfert, who was called up from South Carolina in the ECHL to fill in while Simeon Varlamov recovers from his groin injury.

*Albany is preparing for the return of former River Rats captain Keith Aucoin, when the Bears visit on Friday night.

*Goaltending prospect Braden Holtby and his Saskatoon Blades defeated the first-place Calgary Hitmen 3-2 Wednesday night. With a 2.36 GAA, Holtby is fourth among WHL goalies who have played at least 10 games this season.

I like the morning reading list, and the "in the system" feature needs to become permanent.

But why no paper article today?

The best morning read on the Caps is Japers' Rink's take on Nick Backstrom and the weight issue. (You traditional media types seem to rarely link to blogs. Unfortunate. And unclear-on-the-concept.)
