Scott Cullen has some post-Olympic notes on Martin St. [url=http://www.authenticthund
Scott Cullen has some post-Olympic notes on Martin St. Doug McDermott Jersey . Louis trade rumours, Team Canada in 2018 as well as NHL Olympic participation in Pyeongchang, South Korea (and beyond). 1. The Internet was abuzz, following the Olympics, about the possibility of the Tampa Bay Lightning dealing leading scorer Martin St. Louis to New York for Rangers captain Ryan Callahan. This was my initital reaction. That isnt to say that the Lightning might not deal St. Louis because, if hes really unhappy after the whole Olympic team selection fiasco, then that might be the impetus for movement. However, the Lightning are in third place in the Eastern Conference, which means they arent just going to give him away, and there are several issues at play with regards to St. Louis future with the team. First, since St. Louis has a no-movement clause, the Lightning are at his mercy should they decide to trade him. If St. Louis says that his preferred destination is the Rangers, because he lives in nearby Connecticut, then you can expect the Rangers to avoid paying fair market value, instead paying closer to monopolistic value, not unlike the Pittsburgh Penguins offered to the Calgary Flames for Jarome Iginla last season. Additionally, if the Lightning are going to shop St. Louis, wouldnt it make much more sense to do it in the offseason, when they might be able to get a better quality return, or perhaps open the trade talks to more than one team (its not like Manhattan is the only NHL location relatively close to Connecticut)? Whatever the deal ends up being, there is little reason for the Lightning to deal St. Louis, straight-up, for an inferior winger with an expiring contract. Maybe Callahan plus works, but it would definitely depend on the plus. The reigning scoring champion cant just be peddled out of town at a cut-rate price if a franchise is going to be seen as legitimate. Considering how torn Lightning GM Steve Yzerman must have been throughout this process, its no wonder that hes had enough as Team Canada GM after back-to-back Olympic gold medals. 2. The 2014 Olympics were barely finished before Mike Johnson was tasked with projecting Team Canada for 2018. Obviously, this requires a lot of projection, going four years ahead of time, but here are some 2014 players that are likely due to be replaced because of age: Roberto Luongo, Mike Smith, Chris Kunitz, Patrick Sharp, Martin St. Louis, Jay Bouwmeester, Dan Hamhuis, Patrick Marleau, Rick Nash and Jeff Carter, all of whom are 29 or older this season. There could easily be more turnover, but filling those 8-10 spots seems a reasonable starting point. In net, I would add Jonathan Bernier (who I would have taken in 2014) to Carey Price. As the number three goaltender, I lean to a younger player like Braden Holtby, even if hes going through some tough times this season. On the blueline, with the right side staying the same -- Drew Doughty, Shea Weber, Alex Pietrangelo, P.K. Subban, along with Duncan Keith and Marc-Edouard Vlasic on the left -- that leaves room for a couple of new faces. Today, Ill go with Ryan Murray and Travis Hamonic ahead of Morgan Rielly and Brenden Dillon. Up front, after bringing back Sidney Crosby, Jonathan Toews, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, John Tavares, Jamie Benn, Matt Duchene and Patrice Bergeron, I add Steven Stamkos, Tyler Seguin, Taylor Hall, Claude Giroux, Logan Couture and Nathan MacKinnon to get to 14 forwards. It pains me to pass over Blue Jackets C Ryan Johansen, but hes one that I find intriguing. The debate will surely rage, but maybe we can put it aside for at least three years before getting caught up in it too much. 3. One other twist, as it pertains to participation in the Olympics, and was mentioned by Gord Miller, is that the NHL could go with the under-23 model that soccer uses in the Summer Olympics. The sticking point, to me, in this plan is that teams arent going to want to continue playing their schedule without some of these top-calibre players. Here are some of the best 22-and-under players in the NHL this season. Can we really expect a team to go forward and play games for a couple of weeks without players of that calibre? Imagine the Colorado Avalanche without Ryan OReilly, Nathan MacKinnon and Gabriel Landeskog, or the Winnipeg Jets minus Evander Kane, Mark Scheifele and Jacob Trouba. Those would be devastating to those particular teams. The other tweak to the option is that NHL teams could decide which players can go which, given previous experience with the World Junior tournament, would pretty much eliminate the participation of NHL players, which begs the question: why impose an age limit at all if NHLers wont be participating? By most accounts, the players always seem in favour of the experience. Those that are playing enjoy it and those that dont enjoy getting some time off during the season. As it stands now, NHL owners and executives have taken the position that they arent so interested in participating in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea and that could be their legitimate stance, especially after some teams had players suffer injuries while playing in Sochi. At the same time, its also the kind of position that a negotiator would take if they wanted to extract more favourable compensation from the International Olympic Committee. Theres no leverage if you state that youre unequivocally in love with the current relationship. Boston Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs, who has hardly been regarded as being tight with the players, told the New York Times, "I know the importance of competing in the Olympics to many of our players — they are our partners and if it is important to them it should be important to us." That doesnt sound like the door on NHL Olympic participation has been shut altogether. At least not yet.

Iwakuma pitched seven strong innings to stay unbeaten in road games since last July, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 5-2 win over the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night. Shawn Kemp Jersey .com) - Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard notched a win, while second-seeded two-time champion Ana Ivanovic, third- seeded Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova and fifth seed Sabine Lisicki all exited the draw at the Generali Ladies Linz tennis event. http://www.authenticthunderauthority.com...rsey-c-24/ . - Gary Kubiak is John Elways No.MANCHESTER, England - Sergio Aguero kept Manchester City in range of Premier League leader Chelsea with a second-half derby winner on Sunday that consigned Manchester United to its worst 10-game start to a season in nearly 30 years.The defending champions maintained their recent supremacy over their fiercest rivals by winning 1-0 at Etihad Stadium, with Aguero finishing off a sweeping move in the 63rd. City now has four straight league victories against United for the first time since the 1969-70 season.United couldnt hold out after defender Chris Smalling was sent off in the 39th minute for two quick yellow cards and now has just 13 points from 10 matches — its lowest haul since 1986, when Ron Atkinson was fired and replaced by Alex Ferguson.United manager Louis van Gaal spent $250 million over the summer to rebuild the team after last seasons dismal season under David Moyes but is finding results just as hard to come by.Chelsea has twice as many points as ninth-placed United after more than a quarter of the campaign.Tottenham also benefited from a red card in Sundays other game, scoring two goals in the final six minutes of normal time through Nacer Chadli and Harry Kane to beat 10-man Aston Villa 2-1.Christian Benteke was sent off for pushing in the 65th, checking Villas momentum after Andreas Weimanns first-half opener. Villa has now lost six straight games, a run that is piling the pressure on manager Paul Lambert.After spending so long in the shadow of United in Fergusons trophy-filled tennure, the blue half of Manchester is basking in a period of dominance not seen in 44 years. Detlef Schrempf Jersey. This latest win kept City six points behind Chelsea but it was hardly convincing, despite playing against 10 men for more than half the game.Booked needlessly in the 31st for impeding an out-of-hand clearance by goalkeeper Joe Hart, Smalling dived into a challenge on James Milner eight minutes later and was shown a second yellow card that Van Gaal labeled stupid.It got worse for United when Smallings centre-back partner, Marcos Rojo, was carried off on a stretcher in the 55th minute with a dislocated left shoulder. The visitors makeshift defence now consisted of two midfielders in Antonio Valencia and substitute Michael Carrick and two 19-year-olds.When Aguero turned home a cross from Gael Clichy to score his league-high 10th goal of the season, it looked like City would go on to win easily, but United finished the game stronger and had chances to equalize through Angel Di Maria and Marouane Fellaini.I have seen willpower of this team that I said to the players is fantastic, Van Gaal said, but we have still only 13 points out of 10 games and that is not so much.Van Gaal played down suggestions that Fellaini spat at Aguero as he stood over the striker following a first-half challenge.I heard that it is a question on social media but that it has showed he is shouting, Van Gaal said. Sometimes when you shout, there is a little bit of saliva so I dont think he is a spitting figure.
