PHILADELPHIA -- The Canucks say they are happy picking sixth in the NHL draft as it stands now but that hasnt stopped new GM Jim Benning from making calls. Marvin Jones Jr Youth Jersey . "We think at six were going to get a real good player that we like, but up until (Friday) when the draft starts well keep inquiring and seeing what it takes to move up and if weve got the assets to make it happen," Benning said Thursday on the eve of the draft. Benning has a major asset to dangle in the form of centre Ryan Kesler. "Were talking to teams, but at the end of the day were going to do what makes sense to us and to try to help Ryan out," Benning said. "If we dont think we can get a fair deal for him, then were going to keep him and hes a Vancouver Canuck. And were happy to have him back because hes a great player." Kesler has reportedly given the Canucks a list of potential teams he would join, with some suggesting that list is growing shorter. Benning says dealing with a smaller pool of potential trade partners is more difficult but "that is what it is." "Were talking to the agent on a daily basis and were talking to teams and were hoping to figure something out thats hes happy with and were happy with." Kesler had 25 goals and 18 assists in 77 games last season. "If were going to go down that path, we want to try to get NHL-calibre players back to help with that," Benning said of losing Keslers offence. Asked about looking for a veteran goalie, Benning said: "Were going to look at all of our options on that." "Weve said before were happy with the progress that Eddie (Lack) made last year. But as free agency comes up, were going to look at options and then if it makes sense for us, well do that." The Canucks also have Jacob Markstrom in goal. Benning said he is not hung up about trades within his own conference. "I dont think that has any bearing on what were trying to do in Vancouver," he said. "We want to try to get some younger players here this next few years going forward. We have (forward) Bo Horvat who we drafted last year and were going to have the sixth pick this year. So were getting some building blocks." Austin Bryant Lions Jersey . The third baseman whipped the ball across the diamond to second baseman Aaron Hill.

If Nigeria doesnt comply, FIFA said it will be banned from international football at least until FIFAs Congress in Zurich on May 28-29 next year.That would mean Nigeria is thrown out of the ongoing African Cup qualifying campaign ahead of the start of the finals in January. None of Nigerias national or club teams would be able to play in international tournaments under a FIFA suspension.Nigerias football federation has been in turmoil for months and it has been warned repeatedly.The country — which made the last 16 of the World Cup in Brazil — was already suspended from internationals for nine days in July after previous NFF President Aminu Maigari was detained by security forces on his reeturn from the World Cup and ousted from office. Calvin Johnson Womens Jersey. A new leadership was then installed in government-backed elections that were not recognized by FIFA. Maigari was reinstated and oversaw proper elections on Sept. 30, when Amaju Pinnick was voted in as new NFF president.But FIFA said the Nigerian government is interfering again after persons claiming to have been legitimately elected previously went to occupy the offices of the NFF.We also have been informed that security forces prevented the (new) NFF President from travelling to Namibia where he was supposed to represent the NFF at the final match of the African Womens Championship, FIFA said.Nigeria is also the African womens champion after winning the title last weekend, but was nearly prevented from playing in that game because of the federation problems, the NFF said. The African womens final only went ahead after Confederation of African Football President Issa Hayatou, who is also a FIFA vice-president, pleaded with his FIFA colleagues to give Nigeria one more chance, according to the NFF.According to the federation, Hayatou also met with Nigeria sports minister Tammy Danagogo at the African womens championship in Namibia and told the minister that FIFA and CAF have had it up to their neck with Nigeria. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
SACRAMENTO, Calif. Zack Martin Jersey . -- The Golden State Warriors have made another move in hopes of finding a reliable backup to point guard Stephen Curry. The Warriors acquired Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers for reserve guards Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks on Wednesday night, adding a veteran ball-handler to their beleaguered bench. Word of the deal started to spread just before the Warriors played in Sacramento and the Lakers hosted Houston, with the three players involved saying goodbye to teammates and coaches in the locker room. Both teams confirmed the trade before halftime of their games. "We think this just bolsters the bench and gives us some more options, some more weapons and a player when you give him the ball you know you can trust him," Warriors general manager Bob Myers said during intermission in Sacramento. "We just think it was a chance to improve our roster and that was our justification." The trade gives Golden State a savvy veteran off the bench without sacrificing any of its core players or moving into the leagues luxury tax. The Warriors used a $4 million trade exception they got in the deal with Denver that landed free agent Andre Iguodala last summer. The team is about $400,000 under the luxury tax, Myers said. The Warriors were hoping Blake would be uniform when they host Houston on Thursday night in Oakland. Blake, who is making $4 million in the final year of his contract, averaged 9.5 points and 7.6 assists while starting all 27 games he played for the injury-depleted Lakers this season. The Warriors are counting on the 33-year-old veteran to improve a bench that has been searching for a solid ball-handler since Jarrett Jack left for Cleveland in free agency last summer. The Warriors acquired Jordan Crawford and Brooks from Boston in a three-team trade on Jan. 15. Golden State sent struggling backup Toney Douglas to Miami in that deal. Crawford has been, at times, a prolific scorer but is still learning how to be a better distributor and playmaker on a Warriors team that has plenty of shooters. He entered Wednesday averaging 6.3 points and 2.2 assists in his first 13 games with the Warriors after starting for the Celtics while Rajon Rondo was injured. "We like our core, and I think our core likes each other. I think its a core that can win," Myers said. "And our bench, for whatever reason, struggled early on. Anything we could do to fortify it, we tried to do without removing what we consider our core." The Lakers received some salary cap relief and a pair of young and unproven players in the deal. Brooks appeared in just seven games with the Warriors and never caught on in Mark Jacksons rotation. Bazemore, best known for his animated cheering on Golden States bench, also struggled in limited action the past two seasons. Both had split time with the teams NBA Development League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, but should get more of an opportunity with the rebuilding Lakers. Chuck Howley Jersey . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs. Reggie Davis Jersey .

MIAMI -- The Arizona Diamondbacks started fast and held on late. Air Max 90 Verdi . Aaron Hill and Cliff Pennington hit home runs in the first inning for the Diamondbacks, who beat the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Friday night. All five runs in the game were scored in the first inning. "We hit some balls hard with three runs and then they scored two in the first and our pitching shut them down," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. Trevor Cahill (3-8) pitched 6 2-3 innings, allowing two runs and six hits. Addison Reed pitched the ninth for his 29th save in 34 chances. Marlins starter Brad Hand (2-5) allowed three runs in seven innings. The Marlins, trailing 3-2, loaded the bases in the seventh, but Matt Stites got Donovan Soloano to ground into a fielders choice to end the scoring threat. The Marlins threatened again in the eighth, but Jarrod Saltalamacchia bounced into an inning-ending double play, one of four turned by the Diamondbacks. "They hurt us tonight for sure," said Marlins third baseman Casey McGehee, who grounded into two of the four. "Its going to happen from time to time, but it doesnt make you feel any better about it." Pennington hit his first homer since May 1, 2013, against San Francisco, and Hill added a two-run shot, his 10th of the season. "Im going up there just looking for something up," Hill said. "I typically dont swing at the first pitch, but it worked out and it ended up being all right." The Marlins responded with RBI singles by Giancarlo Stanton and Garrett Jones. "Thats the beauty of the big leagues," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "Both teams come out swinging the bats and then zeroes the rest of the way." Diamondbacks rookie Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a single in the fifth. TRAINERS ROOM Diamondbacks: LHP Matt Reynolds (Tommy John surgery) threw live batting practice to SS Chris Owings (left shoulder strain) in Scottsdale, Arizona. Marlins: RHP Henderson Alvarez is expected to rejoin the rotation on Saturday after missing two starts with right shoulder inflammation. "He threw a bullpen the other day and he looks great," Redmond said. "...Whatever stillness he had is gone and hes ready to go." ON DECK Diamondbacks LHP Wade Miley (7-8, 4.61) will oppose Alvarez (8-5, 2.48), who is 5-2 with a 1.48 ERA at home. Miley is 2-1 with a 0.89 ERA in three career starts against the Marlins. SHOW AND GO With the Diamondbacks in the middle of a season-high, 10-game road trip, which included a pair of long nights in Cleveland, Gibson elected to give his team extra time off before the game. The team showed up just two hours before game time and did not partake in batting practice. "Experience just tells you that its something smart to do," Gibson said. "Mentally its a good lift for them to give them a little extra time to chill out and do some other things and not overthink things." The plan is the same for Saturday, which excited the players. "Its funny, you should have heard the reaction from everybody when (director of team travel) Roger (Riley) yelled it was show and go," Hill said. "We obviously cant do it every day, but on a long road trip. Its funny how a bunch of grown men get excited about the little things." POSTGAME MOVE Marlins RHP Anthony DeSclafani was optioned to Triple-A New Orleans to make room for Alvarez, who will be reinstated from the disabled list on Saturday. Air Max 90 Nere Scontate . Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia. For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate. Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester. Air Max 90 Bianche Zalando . "We were left with the overall impression that the team wasnt trending toward being able to compete for a Stanley Cup," Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said in a news conference at the clubs arena. "And that was just a clear signal and why it was time to make those changes.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A day after Anaheim captain Ryan Getzlaf took a slap shot to the head, the Ducks had already found the lighter side of a potentially disastrous playoff injury. "Luckily, hes married, has a couple of kids," Anaheim defenceman Ben Lovejoy said. "Hes not trying to impress anybody with his face." Coach Bruce Boudreau was more succinct: "I didnt want to look at him," he said. Nobody in either dressing room was surprised Thursday to learn Getzlaf plans to play against the Dallas Stars in Game 2 on Friday night despite that huge cut on his face. Getzlaf was hit by Tyler Seguins shot in the final minute of the Ducks 4-3 victory over Dallas on Wednesday night in the series opener, but the puck apparently broke no bones -- which means itll be almost impossible to keep Getzlaf off the ice. "Thats why he is who he is," Boudreau said. "Thats why hes won two gold medals and a Stanley Cup and hes not 30. He learned from the Scotty Niedermayers and the Chris Prongers that were here before him, too. Hes a battler and a gamer. It wont look too pretty, but hes going to be playing." Getzlaf was the NHLs second-leading scorer this season with 87 points, having a spectacular offensive season while doing more of the Ducks defensive dirty work than ever before. His two-way game was on display in the opener, and Anaheim followed his lead to hold off the Stars despite blowing most of a four-goal lead. The Ducks know theyve got to maintain their focus on that dirty work to take control of the series before heading to Dallas. Anaheim had a spectacular first half of Game 1 before slipping late in the second period. "Youd like to put your foot on their throat, but they showed they can score some goals when they have to," Anaheim defenceman Cam Fowler said. "Theyve got momentum going into Game 2." Five more things to examine when the Ducks return against Dallas: FILM WORK: Dallas coach Lindy Ruff held the longest film session of the season on Thursday, but mostly focused on what the Stars did well in the series opener. With capptain Jamie Benn leading a long list of Stars making their post-season debuts, Ruff wants to keep his teams morale high after an early setback. Air Max Plus Scontate. "Its my job to get them in the right place, and they werent in quite the right place yesterday," Ruff said. BELESKEYS WOES: Getzlaf isnt the only top-line Ducks forward nursing an injury. Matt Beleskey might not play in Game 2 after leaving the opener in the third period. Beleskey said he has been struggling for weeks with an undisclosed lower-body injury thats been "all over the place" in its severity. He plans to evaluate himself Friday morning before deciding whether to try. Beleskey is easier to replace in the Ducks lineup than Getzlaf, but the energetic forward would be missed. HEAVY LOAD: The Ducks used their speed and passing abilities to carve up the Stars depleted defence for numerous scoring chances, particularly early. With Brenden Dillon still sidelined by an undisclosed injury, the Stars leaned heavily on defencemen Trevor Daley (who played 26:14) and Alex Goligoski (a whopping 28:39) to keep the Ducks at bay. Goligoski, who didnt skate Thursday, was encouraged by the way Dallas finished. "I dont think (Anaheim) had too many shifts where they were buzzing down there (in the Dallas end)," he said. DUCKY DEBUT: Rookie goalie Frederik Andersen stopped 32 shots to win his NHL playoff debut, and Boudreau indicated the 6-foot-4 Dane is likely to start again in Game 2 over veteran Jonas Hiller. Andersen has impressed his teammates with his preternatural calm all season long. "Its almost like hes got no heartbeat," Corey Perry said. "He just goes out, finds the puck and stops it." MOMENTUM SHIFT?: Even though Anaheim has the chance to take its first two-game lead in a playoff series since 2009, both teams believe Dallas is starting Game 2 with no disadvantage. "I think were back on an even playing field, even though were up 1-0," Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano said. "The way they finished the game, it feels like were even." Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '

The Masters champion failed to win a point in his three matches as Europe lost 17-11 to the United States at Hazeltine. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. The build-up to the event was also overshadowed by his brother Petes controversial magazine article in which he mocked American supporters. This led to a backlash against Willett at Hazeltine with comments also directed towards his parents and wife during his matches.However, the Englishman remains determined to play in the Ryder Cup again and is hoping to earn a place in Europes team for 2018 when they will try and win back the trophy at Le Golf National near Paris.When asked if he had been put off the Ryder Cup, Willett told Sky Sports News HQ: No definitely not. I think that if you look at last week, its one of the biggest stages in world sport and its got a massive following and you have got 150,000-200,000 fans there that just love watching golf. Willett failed to win a point for Europe at the Ryder Cup Unfortunately, you have got the odd one or two that dont necessarily go there to actually watch the golf, which is a shame but that is what it is. I dont think it is ever going to stop.You got a taste of it last week being in America with the fans and stuff and how they kind of push on to help their team win - thats what they do. In Europe, I think it will be interesting to see how it is in Paris. That is a fantastic golf course with some perfect amphitheatres around the greens for spectators.But I think the Ryder Cup as a whole is an unbelievable event and it was just great to be part of it.Willett also says he has no concerns about playing in other tournaments in the United States as he believes last week was a one-off.   Willett was generally well treated by the fans at Hazeltine He said: I think that people realise that what was said was reflecting on a massively tiny portion of people that went there and thats just how it is unfortunately.When you are walking around a golf event weekk to week, everyone is fantastic. Cheap Minnesota Vikings Jerseys. .

The list of available players is very strong this off-season as the February. Julian Edelman Womens Jersey . 10 signing period in CFL free agency approaches. Justin Hickman, Weston Dressler and Odell Willis are just a few of the players that will become available when the market opens on February 10 at Noon et, but even with these big name international players out there, the most coveted will be Canadian talent, especially those on the offensive line. Its just a matter of numbers. All the big talk about the Canadian offensive linemen being the big prizes is really about big money. explained former BC Lions coach Mike Benevides. These guys will command some of the biggest dollars. Its about supply and demand. With most teams starting four Canadian linemen, each team needs to have seven of them on their roster somewhere.” (approximately 70 league-wide) As the table below shows, the fullback and kicker positions have more Canadians by percentage. But they are far fewer in actual numbers than the offensive line: Canadian Starters Position Percentage Starting Fullback 9/9 - 100% Long Snapper 8/9 - 88% Kicker/Punter 9/13 - 69% Offensive Line 29/45 - 64% Wide Receiver 15/41 - 37% Defensive Line 8/36 - 22% Defensive Back 9/45 - 20% Running Back 1/9 - 11% Linebacker 2/27 - 7% Quarterback 0/9 - 0% *Based on CFL teams’ final depth charts from 2014 season A minimum of seven Canadians have to start on a CFL roster (offence and defence). And while there have been some changes, teams still look to put the majority of their Canadian players on the offensive line. So when there are established Canadian offensive linemen available as free agents, theyll be highly sought after and will command big dollars. The two things I like about this class of top free agent offensive linemen is that they have all played early in their career and had success and that theyre young, said TSN analyst and former coach Paul LaPolice. They could be the cornerstone of any organizations Canadian depth for a long time. (Ben) Heenan and (Brett) Jones have proven themselves as multi-year starters and have performed at a high level, added Benevides. Heenan has competed at offensive tackle, which is a unique skill and seen as a ratio changer – and hes won a Grey Cup.” Jones has also won a Cup and played at a level at which he was awarded the best offensive lineman of 2014. These men (as well as Tyler Holmes) have developed into and grown to be capable starters. Heres a look at some of the noteworthy Canadian offensive linemen who will be free agents at Noon et on Tuesday, Feb. 10. Ben Heenan – Right Tackle, Saskatchewan Heenan, 24, has been a starter in Saskatchewan ever since he was taken first overall in the 2012 CFL Draft. At 64 and 310 pounds, he hasnt looked out of place since his arrival. Heenan will only get better and will be in high demand come Feb. 10 (Winnipeg has already been mentioned as a team with keen interest). Boosting up that demand is the fact that Heenan is a Canadian playing a tackle spot - generally considered a harder position to fill than centre or guard. Riders GM Brendan Taman expects Heenan to test the free agent market and making things more complicated is the demand for Heenan from NFL teams. Benevides Game Notes on Heenan: - Has been a starting right OT, but long-term he’s best suited at guard - Quality consistent player, strong run blocker LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Proven ratio changer and performs well enough to be a Canadian tackle. - Will only get better out there and can be a core player of a team’s National players. Brett Jones – Centre, Calgary In just his second season, the Stampeders centre was named the CFLs most outstanding offensive lineman in 2014. In 2013, he was named the CFLs most outstanding rookie. And with two All-Star nods over those two seasons, there will be immense interest in him. For his part, Jones has made it known that he wants to make an NFL roster next season. He had tryouts with the Giants and Buccaneers in December and is expected to get workouts with other teams. Benevides Game Notes on Jones: - Very intelligent player who finds a way to perform, even though hes not optimum size. - Excellent in open space, a great competitor LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Quickly established himself as one of, if not the best centres in the league at a very young age. - Centre must have great intelligence as he often directs the other linemen and he has flourished in the role. - Physical and uses his hands well. Tyler Holmes – Guard, Toronto After joining the Argonauts at the end of the 2013 season, Holmes showed how effective he could be in his first full campaign as a starter. He played in all 18 games in 2014 and was named an East Division All-Star. Editor’s Note: Since publication, the Argonauts announced that Holmes re-signed with the team through the 2016 season. Benevides Game Notes on Holmes - Big-time college accolades, not a lot of snaps in our league yet - Hes a very physical athlete: strong, moves well, tough and capable at multiple positions - I believe he has the greatest upside, he would be the one Id want LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Love his aggressiveness, has the athletic ability to possibly go outside and play tackle. - He gets to the second level well and will strike the linebackers. - Has the feet to move outside with time Matthew ODonnell – Guard, Edmonton ODonnells size alone (611, 350 pounds) will make him a notable presence in free agency. After being drafted by Saskatchewan in 2011, ODonnell bounced around trying out for NBA teams and even made it to the Bengals practice roster. In Edmonton, he found his stride starting all 18 games for the Eskimos in 2013. He was named the teams Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman that year and he continued his strong play in 2014. His continued improvement will make him a wanted man should he jump into the free agent market. Editor’s Note: O’Donnell was released from his contract by the Eskimos with reports stating he’ll sign with the Bengals of the NFL. Benevides Game Notes on ODonnell - He has really developed and grown in the last couple of seasons into a quality player who plays with the kind of grit that is really important and unique. - He has position flexibility, he could play at OT to get through. LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Improved dramatically since his draft year in a number of areas. - Had the opportunity to play at a young age and it has helped him a lot. - Doing a better job of playing with a wide base and is improving at keeping his weight back in pass protection. - As his punch improves you will not find a longer set of arms in the CFL to hold off defensive lineman. Greg Wojt - Guard, Hamilton Wojt would be a veteran presence welcome on any CFL roster. The 2014 campaign was an injury-filled one for Wojt, as he appeared in only two games after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. Prior to 2013, he started in 20 games for the Ticats and was named the teams Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman. Hes played in 68 games in his CFL career and if hes healthy, hell garner a lot of outside interest. Benevides Game Notes on Wojt - Very good player, outstanding movement skills and pass sets - Intelligent, a multi-position guy, but slightly underweight and lacks optimum size - Has been injured recently LaPolices Coaching Playbook - Has performed well for the Ticats and continues to grow So while the skill positions get most of the glory and the headlines in the CFL, it certainly pays to be an offensive lineman, especially a homegrown one. The premium on Canadian O-Line talent also extends to the prospect pool, as they make up eight of the top 14 CFL prospects for 2015. And if these prospects are able to prove themselves early in their careers, theyre likely to cash in as well. A lot of offensive linemen are drafted and brought into camps but it does take time to be big enough, mature enough to be able to perform at the pro level, Benevides explains. These men are ready made, ready to start. Someone (another team) invested in growing and developing them and whichever team they go to can capitalize now. Sony Michel Womens Jersey . Philippe Desrosiers stopped 42 shots through overtime and three more in the shootout to pick up his third shutout of the season for Rimouski (31-15-7).
