the first period for Team Toews from lebaobei123's blog

TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger gathered for the latest installment of Insider Trading and the topics discussed were if the Oilers would trade Nail Yakupov, if the Panthers are ready to blow things up in Florida and PK Subbans contract talks in Montreal. Cheap Air Jordan 1 Canada . Is there any chance Nail Yakupov ends up being traded out of Edmonton? Dreger: Not this year. The Oilers have no intentions of trading him. What they need from him, given the fact that hes played 65 NHL games, is to figure it out. He needs to start being a better defensive player, he needs to mature a little bit, work on the issues in his game and be ready for the time when Ales Hemsky is traded by the Oilers so he can take a more predominant role. As for the Igor Larionov story, Craig MacTavish spoke to him and there are no issues there. Yakupov hasnt demanded a trade yet but someone in Dallas has. McKenzie: If youve been hearing a lot of Vernon Fiddler trade rumours its because two weeks ago he went to the Dallas Stars and said he wants more ice time and wants a bigger role, and if he cant get it with Dallas than let it be somewhere else. Hes on an expiring contract at $1.8 million and an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year. There is interest in him from other teams but the Stars are wining and things are going well, so theyre not going to give him away. Keep an eye on this one. Dreger: The Toronto Maple Leafs are one of those teams that have had discussions with Dallas about Fiddler. Torontos a little bit concerned about his age and the money, but the Leafs are looking for something. Theyve also had discussions on potentially trading John-Michael Liles to the Carolina Hurricanes but nothing imminent there. Is Panthers general manager Dale Tallon ready to blow things up in Florida? McKenzie: Lets play hockey jeopardy. Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Nick Bjugstad, Erik Gudbranson, Marcel Goc. Who are the five players on the Florida Panthers who cannot be had in a trade right now? Anybody else on the Panthers are available in trade. The younger guys there that are available - Shawn Matthias or Dmitry Kulikov - theyre the guys now that most teams are kicking tires on. The veterans that are making the bigger money; not so much. How about the goaltending situation in Nashville? LeBrun: The Predators have given up a ton of goals since Pekka Rinne went down; not really a big surprise. Carter Hutton, kind of an unknown commodity, has not answered the bell so the Predators and the Anaheim Ducks, Im told, have had discussions regarding Jonas Hiller. But what the Predators have told the Ducks is that we need to know about Rinnes health before we decide whether or not we have to make a goalie trade. If they get good news, maybe they could hold off and survive but if it looks like its going to be longer than they thought, than maybe theyll have to make a trade, and Hiller - as weve been saying for a month - is very much available from Anaheim. Some quick one-timers... Tuesdays general managers meeting in Toronto? Dreger: The National Hockey League general managers talked about a lot of things at Tuesdays annual general managers meeting. One of the things that was interesting is the shot blockers. We know that the Calgary Flames have made them mandatory, but it was clarified to the GMs that you cannot make additional equipment mandatory, you can only strongly encourage. PK Subban talks in Montreal? LeBrun: Agent Don Meehan was in Montreal for very preliminary discussions where the parameters were set. Its going to be a big negotiation, obviously, for Subban who is a restricted free agent at the end of the year and is going to make a lot of money. That conversation has begun. Stamkos and Sochi?  McKenzie: Hockey Canada is not ruling him out at this point. The surgery went well. Tampa media is reporting that a metal rod was inserted the length of the tibia and a metal rod is no worse than plates or screws, so right now the unofficial timeline seems to be in and around three months. It could be more than that and it could be less, but with Team Canada not expected to name the roster until December 28, they will wait and see how much more information theyve got a month to six weeks from now to make a determination. Team Canada will meet in Toronto over the next day and will be whittling down the hardcore of what the nucleus is. LeBrun: And whittling it down to about half, Id say. Team Canada had a long list heading into this season and I think they want to work it down to a manageable number that they can focus on over the next month before D-Day is ready for Team Canada. A young hot prospect not named Connor McDavid? McKenzie: Everybody knows that the 2015 NHL draft is the so-called Connor McDavid draft and rightfully so. But keep an eye on Jack Eichel; a young American - a late 1996 birth date - who just tore up the Four Nations Cup in Finland. He had four goals and seven points in only three games for the Americans. Hes slated to go to Boston University at some point. His CHL rights were initially owned by the Halifax Mooseheads but they dropped him when he committed to BU, and now the Saint John Sea Dogs hold his CHL rights. Hes a big centre who could put points on the board. Wholesale Air Jordan 1 Canada . -- Max Gilbert captured his first pro victory at the Tour Championship of Canada. Air Jordan 1 Canada Sale . This week, they discuss the NCAAs revenue sharing, Don Zimmer, soccer language and Super Bowl 50.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Detroit Red Wings aim to extend their longest winning streak of the season and make a move at first place in the Atlantic Division on Tuesday evening as they visit the struggling Florida Panthers. The Red Wings won their final five games before the All-Star break to post their longest string of consecutive victories since taking six in a row from Feb. 8-19, 2012. As a result, Detroit sits second in the division, two points ahead of Montreal and one back of Tampa Bay, which is visiting the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. A third-period collapse nearly ended the Red Wings win streak before the break, but the club recovered to win a 5-4 shootout decision over the Minnesota Wild. Detroit blew a 4-1 lead in the third period, however, Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist both scored in the shootout. After Zach Parise missed high for Minnesota, Datsyuk was on point with his backhander as he lifted the puck over Darcy Kuempers glove and into the net. Petr Mrazek stayed with Mikko Koivu and stopped his attempts before Nyquist swerved in from the right side, caught Kuemper moving and slid the puck between the netminders pads for the win. Nyquist finished with a goal and an assist, Teemu Pulkkinen scored his first NHL goal and Jonathan Ericsson and Xavier Ouellet also scored for the Red Wings. We really wanted that second point tonight, said Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg, who had three assists. Petr was solid in net, then Pavel and Gus did their thing. Mrazek made 34 saves in the win and will likely face the Panthers for the first time in his career tonight with Jimmy Howard out with a torn groin. Air Jordan 1 Canada. The Red Wings are set to play two straight and five of their next six on the road, while the Panthers play the fourth contest of a five-game homestand looking to avoid a fifth straight loss. Floridas 0-3-1 rut is its longest of the season and the club has not lost five in a row since March 27-April 4 of last year. The Panthers entered the All-Star break off a 2-1 loss to the Vancouver Canucks. Roberto Luongo made 21 saves versus his former team, while Brandon Pirri prevented a shutout defeat by scoring with 2:32 left in regulation. They took it to us in that first period, Florida head coach Gerard Gallant said. It probably should have been 5-0 but Louie kept us in there. We played better in the second and I thought real well in the third. It was just a little too late. Luongo and rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad return to the Panthers following All-Star Game appearances over the weekend. Luongo yielded four goals on 17 shots in the first period for Team Toews, which won 17-12. Ekblad has four assists for the winning club. Ekblad was selected to play in the game due to an injury to Colorados Erik Johnson and leads all NHL rookie blueliners with 19 assists and 25 points. The Panthers have won the first two of four meetings with the Red Wings this season, with both triumphs coming in Detroit. They have won five of the past seven encounters overall. Luongo was in net for both wins, giving him a career mark of 13-13-5 versus the Red Wings with a 2.85 goals against average and .919 save percentage in 32 games. Detroit has won seven of its past nine trips to Florida, however. Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys ChinaSupply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '
