really do
TORONTO - Aaron Ekblad is getting back to work. Ameer Abdullah Jersey . The first overall draft pick of the Florida Panthers said on Saturday hes free of any concussion-like symptoms less than three weeks after he took a hard hit in a world junior exhibition game. "The concussion is perfectly, completely gone. I feel great," said Ekblad. "Ive been skating all this week, working out all this week. Its gone. I feel great." The 18-year-old defenceman from Windsor, Ont., was injured on Aug. 6 at Canadas world junior training camp in a game against the Czech Republic. The Canadians went on to win 6-2, but Hockey Canada and the Panthers agreed to keep Ekblad off the ice for the rest of the teams summer development camp. Ekblad said his concussion subsided between four and six days ago, allowing him to focus on fitness as he prepares for Floridas training camp in September. "The work Ive been doing has just been getting back into the normal paces — getting game ready on the ice," said Ekblad. "Just doing little things off the ice. Bringing it back up to the weight that I was doing it before, whether it was a squat, trying to get back up to that weight because I took that time off." Ekblad was in regular contact with the Panthers organization after the injury, eventually getting the green light to participate in the NHLPAs rookie showcase in Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. "Their team docs obviously wanted to talk to me, get a feel for how I was feeling," said Ekblad. "I kept in touch with them every day and just tried to let them know." At six-foot-three and 216 pounds, Ekblad is expected to make Floridas opening day lineup despite the concussion. Selected first overall at the NHL Entry Draft on June 27, Ekblad showed some scoring touch with 23 goals and 30 assists for the Ontario Hockey Leagues Barrie Colts last season. Ekblad had a total of 40 goals and 76 assists over three seasons in Barrie. Despite high expectations, Ekblads not nervous about his first NHL training camp. "Im more excited, but Im a pretty level-headed guy," said Ekblad. "I just want to continue doing what Im doing. Obviously, you go to development camp and you learn about what it takes, and thats what Im working on. "I had that little setback, so Im just trying to get back into normal paces." Ekblad was the biggest name of 33 players attending the rookie showcase in Toronto.

Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club. Dwayne Washington Jersey . Already owning gold from competition in Vancouver in 2010, Loch posted a combined four-run time of 3:27.526. That included a track-record third run of 51. http://www.lionsfanspro.com/Customized.html?cat=904 . On the eve of the 2013-14 NBA season, he can finally take a step back and allow his team to do the talking.HOMESTEAD, Fla. - It took Jimmie Johnson just 13 races into his rookie season with Hendrick Motorsports to prove to his team he was a rare talent. He had just won at Dover for his second victory in four weeks and was debriefing with crew chief Chad Knaus when he brought up a sensation he felt in the car that day that he was certain came from wind blowing through a gap in the grandstands. It was remarkable insight, Knaus said, from a driver who understands very little about the setup of a race car. "He can feel the car. He can be one with the car," Knaus said. "I know that sounds foolish, it sounds weird. But, seriously, go to a surfer and ask him about his surfboard. Go to a snowboarder and ask him about his snowboard. Go to a skier, ask him about his skis. "When theyre able to get in that position, and they feel the car, understand what the car is going to do, its pretty amazing. Jimmie can really do that. He feels whats going on." Knaus went so far as to claim Johnson does things in the car "most mortals cant." His resume supports that claim. Johnson continued his romp through the NASCAR record books Sunday night by winning his sixth championship in eight years. With only the mark of seven titles won by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt ahead of him, Johnson is making a solid case to be considered one of the best to ever climb into a race car. Its a debate he wants no part of, shrugging in his champagne-soaked firesuit Sunday night that those conversations can wait until after hes done racing. There are some who believe Johnson is a product of his environment, and he wins because he drives for mighty Hendrick Motorsports in a car prepared by Knaus, a crew chief so laser-focused on the No. 48 Chevrolet that its not always evident if he finds any joy in his job. Theres also an argument that Johnsons titles stem from the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format, which debuted in 2004 as a 10-race playoff. It replaced the decades-old system of crowning a champion based on an entire season, and Johnson reeled off five consecutive titles beginning with Year 3 of the Chase. Indeed, under the old scoring system, Johnson would not have won titles in 2007, 2008 or 2010. But thats not his problem. He raced under the rules at the time, on the same playing field as everyone else on the track — the same as Petty did during his heyday, and Earnhardt during his time. As far as Petty is concerned, the debate is pointless. "All I can say is Earnhardt did his thing in his time against his competition. I did mine against my competition, and hes doing his thing against his competition," Petty said. "We didnt compete with each other. He wasnt there to race against Richard Petty or Earnhardt, and we didnt have to race against Jimmie Johnson, either. "You cant compare. Its not apples and apples. Its apples and oranges." Petty is right, it is very difficult to compare. But Johnson has very much earned the right to be part of the conversation by winning his six titles faster than Petty and Earnhardt, by becoming the youngest driver at 38 to reach the mark, and by winning 30 more races (he has 66 total Cup wins) than any other driver in the last 11 years. Paul Worrilow Jersey. "I dont think he wants to try to prove it to anybody else, he just wants to prove it to himself," team owner Rick Hendrick said. "Ive never seen anyone that works any harder and is any more committed to his physical conditioning, from the way he eats at certain times of the year, when he gets into the Chase, the way he works out. "He doesnt have to run over people. He doesnt have to go out and brag about what hes done. He just shows up, does his job. Sooner or later people have to say, Youre the deal." Yet Johnson still fights a stereotype among many stick-and-ball types who dont respect what hes done. The most recent slight came from retired NFL quarterback Donovan McNabb, who was asked on a Fox Sports program to rank Johnson against other athletes at the top of their game. McNabb dismissed the driver as "absolutely not an athlete" because "he sits in a car and he drives, that doesnt take being athletic." Fellow drivers from various series rallied to Johnsons defence, and NASCAR fans berated McNabb on social media. Johnson said very little on the topic, even after winning his championship. "Yes, I am an athlete, and so is every driver in one of these race cars," he smiled. Ironically, Fox Sports rival ESPN will have Johnson sit in as host Tuesday night for SportsCenter, an appearance being touted as "the first athlete to guest host." He deserves the nod, as his accomplishments rank as high as any other current athlete. Derek Jeter and Kobe Bryant have five team championships, which Johnson has now surpassed. Hes tied with Michael Jordan, who for two years has ribbed Johnson that he had one more ring than the driver. While Roger Federer won 16 Grand Slams in eight years, and Tiger Woods won seven majors in four years, Johnson has won all of NASCARs "crown jewels." Hes won two Daytona 500s, four Brickyard 400s, Coca-Cola 600s and All-Star races, and two Southern 500s. There are only five active tracks on the schedule where Johnson has yet to win, and one of them is Homestead, where hes traditionally playing it safe and trying to wrap up a championship. Knaus, who opined Sunday night that if not for midseason rule changes in 2012 the team "would have waxed the competition," believes the current crew hes assembled around Johnson has yet to reach its full potential. Johnson doesnt dare dream of what other goals he might accomplish or where hell rank when its all said and done. "Its not like me to think in that light. Its just not me," Johnson said. "I guess I need to open my mind to it because the numbers speak for themselves. I find myself in a touchy situation at times where my quiet approach can be looked at as arrogant or cocky, and that is the furthest thing from the truth in what Im trying to portray. "Im just trying to say the right things and keep my mind in the right space. I havent let a lot in, and its led to more success. Its kept my work ethic intact, kept me honest and humble. I like that about myself. I really, really do. I dont know if I want to open my mind and let it in, where I stand in the sports world. Its not time for that in my eyes."
