PITTSBURGH -- Kris Letang darted down the Consol Energy Center ice, the defencemans black hair flicking out from underneath his helmet. Cameron Sutton Jersey . Everything looked in place. The speed. The agility. The slick stickwork. Yet for as polished as Letang appeared during his first workout alongside his teammates in nearly two months on Monday, the 26-year-old remains uncertain when hell be able to pull his No. 58 sweater over his head and suit up in an actual game. Consider it part of the fallout from the scariest moment of Letangs life. Seven weeks after a stroke blindsided him, Letang remains optimistic he will play again this season but too cautious to throw out a date. "I was on the ice today because I want to return," Letang said. "Ill be able to play again. I dont know when." Neither does his coach. Dan Bylsma pointed out that unlike defenceman Paul Martin -- who remains sidelined with a right hand problem -- concrete signs of progress for Letang are tougher to glean. Throwing an arbitrary timeline out there wouldnt do any good because things can change in an instant. "Theres no date to be determined for Kris," Bylsma said. "Right now hes back in a full practice. Thats a good thing." One the Penguins hope will send a bit of a jolt through a constantly churning lineup that has stagnated in Letangs absence. The Penguins are just 7-5-2 since Letang fell ill on Jan. 28 and while their spot atop the Metropolitan Division remains secure, they have ceded the top spot in the Eastern Conference to the Boston Bruins. The slide includes a home-and-home sweep by Philadelphia over the weekend in which Pittsburgh was dominated for the first four periods before salvaging some dignity in the final 40 minutes of a 4-3 loss on Sunday. Not exactly the best way to build momentum heading into the last month of an interminable regular season. Though the Penguins have lost an NHL-high 413 man games to injury this season, they are trying to avoid excuses. They steamrolled through the first four months of the season before falling since Letangs third trip to the injured list. They can play well even as Bylsma plays mix-and-match with his lines. "I think now with the amount of time left in the season its about rounding our game into form for the post-season," defenceman Rob Scuderi said. "Its something you cant flip a switch overnight. You always want wins, but Id be OK if wed play the right way." Having some familiar faces around would help. Letang wasnt the only player back on the ice Monday. Forward James Neal (concussion) practiced, as did wingers Chris Kunitz (lower body) and Beau Bennett (wrist). Thats plenty of additional firepower for a team that already has Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, though the duo has played with limited effectiveness recently while skating without familiar faces by their side. Neal and Bennett likely wont be available until later in the week, though Kunitz has a chance to play on Tuesday night when the Penguins host Dallas. The 34-year-old is tied with Crosby with a team-high 31 goals, and his ability to make something happen in front of the net was missed as Pittsburgh found itself dominated by the Flyers over the weekend. Still, Pittsburghs Stanley Cup playoff chances could rest on Letangs health. One of the fittest players in a league of fit players admits hes still stunned by his stroke diagnosis. Doctors said there was a "0.01 chance" of Letang suffering a stroke, odds so slim Letang refuses to say hes in the clear from it happening again. Letang would rather not talk about it. Hed rather just focus on skating and getting himself ready for whenever doctors give him the go-ahead to play. He confessed to being tired, but not overwhelmed during a spirited 60 minutes on the ice. At one point he could sense his teammates taking it easy on him. He ordered them to get back to work. "Guys were being really careful when wed go into the corner," Letang said. "I told them they can go as hard as they can. Thats the main reason why Im out there. I want to get to the same place I was before." A place that makes Letang one of the best at his position when healthy. A Norris Trophy finalist a year ago, Letang has 10 goals and eight assists in 34 games this season, though his general presence is missed as much as his production. The feeling is mutual. Letang understands the fixation on his return. Trust him, hes just as concerned as everybody else. "Even the day I had the stroke I asked the doctor when I would be able to play again," Letang said. "It never crossed my mind that I could have a stroke at 26. It could (happen again) because it happened once. Who knows? Im not going to worry about that."L.C. Greenwood Jersey . - A late-game interception by defensive back Malcolm Butler saved the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots. Troy Polamalu Jersey . -- Edwin Encarnacion hit a three-run homer, Colby Rasmus drove in two runs and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Detroit Tigers 9-4 on Saturday.SUNRISE, Fla. - Tyson Barrie made the most of his first visit to the Florida Panthers arena as a player.Barrie, whose father Len played for the Panthers from 1999-2001, had a goal and an assist to help the Colorado Avalanche beat the Panthers 4-1 on Thursday night.Nick Holden scored the go-ahead goal in the third period, and Barrie had an assist on the play.I was fortunate my Dad played here and I?was 9 or 10 years old. I was always around the rink and I was always in the locker room, Barrie said. Its nice to come back in this building and have some success.Gabriel Landeskog and Jarome Iginla also scored for Colorado. Semyon Varlamov made 30 saves for the Avalanche, who won for the first time in three games.It was an important win for us and for our confidence, Colorado coach Patrick Roy said.

Holden shot from the high slot and it deflected off the stick of Floridas Scottie Upshall and bounced through traffic past Luongo at 11:03 of the third.Youve got to know in the back of your head that (power-play) time is ticking down. I didnt know the exact time, Holden said. We were just concentrating on getting shots through to the net and kind of get traffic and screens and thats what we did.Iginla added an empty-net goal with 27 seconds left.

Ekblad took the puck in the high slot and his wrist shot beat Varlamov on the stick side at 5:15 of the first. The 18-year-old rookie now has five points in his last seven games and 25 points over 42 games.It was the first power-play goal for the Panthers in their past 14 chances over six games. The Panthers played the first of five home games after going 4-2-0 on a six-game road trip.Its tough, I thought after that long trip wed play real good, coach Gerard Gallant said.

Red Bulls canopy-style concept has split the opinion of the F1 paddock, with some leading figures arguing a balance must be struck between safety and the traditional risk of racing. Branden Oliver Jersey . Red Bull gave a public debut to their cockpit protection aeroscreen on Daniel Ricciardos car for one exploratory lap in Russian GP practice.The Red Bull idea is the second potential solution tried in recent months after Ferrari briefly ran with a halo on their car in winter testing. With the FIA determined to introduce some form of driver head protection to lessen the chance of head injuries, it seems likely that one of the two ideas will be adopted for 2017.However, the test of the aeroscreen in Sochi has provoked a more fundamental debate among drivers old and new about whether F1 should compromise its traditional open-cockpit formula. Weve got a cool, elegant futuristic Formula 1 car and youre going to have a riot shield sitting on top of it. Lewis Hamilton World champion Lewis Hamilton, who made his opposition to the halo clear earlier this year, is not a fan of the Red Bull idea either and believes an element of jeopardy should be retained in the sport.When I get in my car I know that there is a danger - thats been the same since I started when I was eight years old, he told reporters at the Russian GP.Thats the risk that Im willing to take and that is the risk that every single driver thats ever got in a car is willing to take. It [safety] has come along so far over the years, which is amazing and we have rarely seen deaths.If youre going to do it, close the cockpit like a fighter jet, dont half a** it. Do it one way or another. It looks like a riot shield. Weve got a cool, elegant futuristic Formula 1 car and youre going to have a riot shield sitting on top of it. Daniel Ricciardo completes a single installation lap with Red Bulls new aeroscreen canopy. Hamilton made clear he was not against safety advances, but believes they should not detract from the sports appeal.It is a good thing to see that the FIA do take safety seriously, he added. It is a constant thing that always needs to be worked on, but as long as it doesnt affect the aesthetics, the style and the coolness of Formula 1.When is the Russian GP on Sky?Former drivers turned Sky Sports F1 pundits Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert were also unconvinced by the canopy.Thats something Id have expected the great Douglas Bader to have climbed out from, to be honest, said Brundle, referring to the famous RAF wartime pilot. What next? The logical conclusion to all this for me is a driver-less racing car. If youre not prepared to take a risk then dont get inside a racing car. Herbert said that while he did not think drivers would have issues with visibility in normal conditions, he admitted: Im still not sure about the concept. Aesthetically I dont think it looked that bad, its better looking than the halo, for sure.Its all going to be about angles and how lucky you are. Where does that wheel go if it hits? Its going to go high up in the air.Theres a purpose and a reason why everyone is concerned about objects coming towards the drivers head. I think its what F1 and single seater racing is about, its about that bit of risk.And although the idea has been devised by his own Red Bull team, Daniil Kvyat cautioned: We have to see what the fans think. If it takes too much away of the old fashioned look then we shouldnt do it. But if they can accept it... Kimi Raikkonen tests out his Ferrari with the new safety halo during pre-season testing in Barcelona. However, other drivers remain wholly behind the impending arrival of cockpit protection - with Jenson Button, the grids most experienced driver, even suggesting the Red Bull looked better with the partial canopy in place.I prefer the look of it, I think it looks better than a normal Formula 1 car, Button told Sky F1.But I think we have to look at the safety and what one is better for safety. I think in a couple of years time if we did go for the design that was on the Red Bull today we will look back and think the cars look weird without it.I used to watch the F1 powerboats in Bristol with the family with open cockpit for many years and then they had the closed cockpit and it looked so much cooler. That is not a reason to have that option, it is for safety and we have to have the right option for safety. Daniel Ricciardo likes Red Bulls new Aeroscreen following a test run in Practice 1 of the Russian GP Team-mate Fernando Alonso concurred: I think it is a must for safety. We dont need heroes in the sport right now.We saw many incidents and many occasions in the last couple of years and probably all the deaths we had in Formula 1 and junior categories came from head injuries so I think we dont want anyone getting hurt in the future. If there is a solution in place, and it seems it can be a solution, lets introduce it.Watch the whole Russian GP weekend - LIVE ONLY on Sky Sports F1.

They know how difficult it is to beat the San Antonio Spurs. George scored 28 points and Indiana defeated San Antonio 111-100 on Saturday night, snapping an 11-game skid against the Spurs. Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey . Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday.PHILADELPHIA - Dominique Wilkins slapped Al Horford on his back during a brief locker room chat and dished out a few kind words.Horford at last had a triple-double to add to his own highlight reel.Congratulations on your first one, brother, Wilkins said.With Wilkins calling the action from the broadcast booth, Horford had 21 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Atlanta Hawks to their ninth straight win, 105-87 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.The Hawks easily thumped the Sixers even while resting leading scorer Jeff Teague, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll in a stretch of four games in five nights.Its always hard when youre missing some guys, coach Mike Budenholzer said. You worry maybe about each guy not doing his job and continuing to play within the framework of the team. I thought our guys did, for the most part, a good job of sticking to what they do.Horford did his even better, making 8 of 10 shots in just 29 minutes. He was pulled once he grabbed his 10th rebound.All the guys on the bench started telling me, Get two more rebounds! Get two more rebounds! he said. The guys were great about it.The Hawks have won 23 of 25 and won their ninth straight road game. They are in first place this late in the season for the first time since they won the East in 1993-94.Kent Bazemore scored 17 points and Kyle Korver had 15. The Hawks made 12 of 23 3-pointers.Korver showed his former team why hes the best 3-point shooter in the league. He made one 3 late in the first half for a 43-35 lead, followed with another on the next possession, then watched as Mike Scott buried his own 3 to send the Hawks into halftime up 49-37.The Hawks used those three 3s in the final 1:13 of the half to help turn a five-point lead into a rout. They are on their second nine-game winning streak of the season.It kind of feels like a college team in a lot of ways, Korver said. In the NBA, the business side exists. Its on peoples minds. But I feel like everyone here has really bought in.Shelvin Macks 3 late in the third helped strettch the lead to 21 points and the Hawks rested about the entire starting lineup for most of the fourth quarter. Hayes Pullard Jersey. . Mack had 12 points and 10 rebounds.Michael Carter-Williams scored 20 points for the Sixers and K.J. McDaniels had 14. Guard Tony Wroten did not return after he sprained his right knee. The lowly Sixers had won three of four and zipped past New York in the Eastern Conference standings.They make everything so simple that youve really got to stay disciplined on defence, Carter-Williams said. We didnt tonight and thats why we lost.TIP-INSHawks: At 35, Hawks forward Elton Brand knows his career is winding down. Im enjoying riding the bus, he said. When I go to Utah, I take a walk and try and get a lunch in the mountains or something because I dont know if Ill be back here. Brand played four seasons with the Sixers and helped lead them to Game 7 of the 2012 Eastern Conference semifinals. Brand said its been hard watching the Sixers struggle and wondered how much better off the franchise would be today had it stuck with a promising group of young players. I see the pieces around the league, Brand said. Lou Williams getting 30. Andre Iguodala having a great glue-guy personality. Even (Mo) Speights is getting 20 off the bench. (Nik) Vucevic (in Orlando) is 30 and 15 some nights.76ers: What tank? The Hawks are proof that teams dont necessarily have to take Philadelphias lengthy rebuilding plan to rise to the top of the conference. Sixers coach Brett Brown said the Hawks have built a team with a bunch of really good guys that are a bunch of really good players. ... The 76ers have kept an eye on second-round pick Jordan McRaes progress in Australia. There are no immediate plans for McRae to play in the NBA this season.BOARD GAMELed by Horford and Mack, the Hawks outrebounded the Sixers 47-35. The Sixers have been outrebounded by double-digits in each of the past two games and 13 times overall this season (1-12 record).UP NEXTHawks: Visit Boston on Wednesday.76ers: Visit Toronto on Wednesday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

TORONTO - Borrowing TSNs microphone in Torontos locker room ahead of Drake Night and the Raptors rematch with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, Lucas Nogueira called over fellow Brazilian Bruno Caboclo. Harry Wilson Jersey . Caboclo, the Raptors 20th overall pick and new fan favourite, had posted a video of the two rookies doing some karaoke at a local Brazilian steakhouse earlier this week. This time it was Nogueira, the always excitable seven-footer with the big hair and big personality, that took the initiative, interviewing the 19-year-old Caboclo. The conversation ranged from preparation for the game that evening, to Caboclos improved English and joke telling. Nigueira also inquires about Caboclos relationship status on behalf of his female fans on social media and gives the young Brazilian some advice. I think you have to show your personality, you have to show Bruno Caboclo, Brazilian spirit. So when you start showing that Brazilian spirit like Bruno Caboclo, I think theyll start coming. Listen to the full interview HERE. LUCAS NOGUEIRA: Bruno Cabocolo. Were in the locker room in Toronto. How are your expectations for tonight. Big game, right? Brooklyn. Everybody has a lot of strong feelings about Brooklyn because of last year so everybodys excited for tonight. What do you think about tonight? Can you talk to us a little bit, quick?

Bye. Cameron Brannagan Jersey . Tyrell appeared in seven games with the Lightning this year, he had no points in those appearances. The 24-year-old has seven goals and 17 assists in 132 career NHL games, all coming with the Lightning. He was selected in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2007 draft. Jordan Henderson Jersey . Both of Padakins goals came in the second period while Zane Jones added a single in the first period for Calgary (13-6-4). Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger finished with 30 saves for the shutout. WASHINGTON -- On his first swing back from a knee injury, Bryce Harper hit a curtain-call home run. Welcome back, slugger. "Typical Bryce right there, hes all about the drama," teammate Jayson Werth said. "He didnt disappoint us, I guess." Harpers first-inning solo shot Monday night was the sparkplug for the Washington Nationals in a 10-5 pounding of the slumping Milwaukee Brewers. It was the 20-year-old Harpers only hit of the night, but the domino effect was real. Werth, unhappily bumped to second in the lineup because of Harpers return, got five RBIs. Starting pitcher Jordan Zimmerman was an unexpected offensive juggernaut with a team-high three hits, including a double to start a five-run third inning and a single to open a two-run fourth. Put it all together and the Nationals had their second runaway win in as many days. After toying with .500 for the entire month of June, Washington moved two games above the break-even mark for the first time since late May. "Its kind of contagious. Everybody knows weve got some work to do," Washington manager Davey Johnson said. "Lets get down to business. Lets get serious." Harper missed 31 games with bursitis in his left knee -- the most lingering fallout from his collision with the Dodger Stadium wall -- and was activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game. Batting third and playing left field, he launched the second pitch he saw, a fastball from Yovani Gallardo (6-8), into the visitors bullpen beyond left field for an opposite-field homer. Harper raised his right arm and pointed to the fans as he finished his familiar sprint around the bases. After lots of high-fives in the dugout, he returned to the top of the steps and gave a thumbs-up curtain call. "I felt like I was back on opening day," said Harper, who homered in his first two at-bats of the season. "I was trying to get something I could drive. I got a pitch I could handle a little bit and put it where I wanted to." The solo shot was Harpers 13th homer of the season and 24th RBI. He hurt his knee in the mishap in Los Angeles on May 13 and reinjured it several times over the following two weeks before going on the disabled list. He went 4 for 11 in minor league rehab games last week. He finished 1 for 4 with a walk on Monday. He slid hard into second base on a double play in the sixth inning, showing no signs of being gimpy in his knee. The Nationals improved to 26-19 when Harper plays; they are 16-21 when he doesntt. Adam Lallana Jersey. He and the teammates made life easy for Zimmermann (12-3), who had an 8-0 lead at one point and pitched six innings. He allowed four runs and tied unbeaten Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers for the major league lead in wins. Zimmermann said his night at the plate was better than his night on the mound. He joked about the size of his bat, initially claiming it was 39 inches instead of 34. "I pitch all right," Zimmerman said. "But definitely three hits is awesome." Werths mood, by contrast, was nowhere near jovial, especially for a player with his best RBI game since 2009. He kept reporters waiting for nearly an hour after the game and proclaimed himself "just a grunt out here playing ball." "I dont necessarily like hitting second," Werth said. "But if thats the best for our team, Ive said it before: Last year when I led off, it wasnt personally the best fit for me, but it was the best for our team and thats why I felt like it should have happened. And the same goes for me hitting second now." The Nationals, perhaps finally finding their stride after a middling first half of the season, have won five of seven to pull within six games of the first-place Atlanta Braves in the NL East. Washington scored a season-high 13 runs on Sunday against the New York Mets. Meanwhile, the Brewers, missing injured slugger Ryan Braun, have lost six straight and are 32-49 at the midpoint of their season. Gallardo struggled for the second straight start. With the Brewers bullpen spent after Sundays 14-inning loss to Pittsburgh, the right-hander was left to fend for himself until he was pulled in the fourth inning. He allowed eight runs, and his ERA rose from 4.20 to 4.78. "You dont expect to see it from Yovani because hes been so consistent through his career, but hes at a point right now where for some reason hes deep in counts to almost every batter," Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said. "Were 3-2 and hes having to make a great pitch, and you cant survive if you keep doing that." NOTES: Johnson said LHP Ross Detwiler had a good bullpen session and is on pace to start Wednesday as scheduled. Detwiler had stiffness in his lower back after his last start. ... The Nationals optioned RHP Erik Davis to Triple-A Syracuse to make room for Harper. ... Brewers RHP Kyle Lohse will make his next start Wednesday on two days rest. Lohse started Sunday, but he went only 1 2-3 innings before a 2-hour rain delay. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

VIGO, Spain -- Athletic Bilbao hung on to draw 0-0 at Celta Vigo to stretch out its fourth-place advantage in the Spanish league on Monday. Fikayo Tomori Jersey . The Basque club improved to four points better than fifth-place Villarreal in the duel for the last Champions League qualifying place. Celta should have come away with more from the high tempo game. Celta playmaker Rafinha -- the on-loan Barcelona midfielder who has been one of the driving forces to the Galician clubs strong season -- sprayed a shot wide just before stoppage time. Celta striker Mario Bermejo headed an opportunity from inside the box over outstretched goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz but over goal on the final play of the game. Celta, which also found the post, improved to 11th. Danny Drinkwater Jersey . CSKA received the heavier punishment of playing its next European home game behind closed doors, after its supporters displayed racist and far-right symbols in the Czech Republic during a 2-1 loss to Viktoria Plzen on Dec. John Obi Mikel Jersey . Grimes signed a $32 million, four-year contract to remain with Miami. The deal, which includes $16 million guaranteed, rewards Grimes for his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury that forced him to miss almost all of the 2012 season.The Pittsburgh Penguins have made the playoffs for eight years running, but losing in Game Seven of the second round this year caused them to clean house, firing GM Ray Shero and head coach Dan Bylsma. Off-Season Game Plan looks at a Penguins team that has a new general manager, Jim Rutherford, and is still looking for a coach, but will surely expect to ice Cup contender next season. Its a little difficult to forecast what next years Penguins club will look like, not knowing yet who will be coaching, but its safe to expect some significant turnover on the roster. Pittsburghs third and fourth lines were obliterated for much of last season and many of those players are unrestricted free agents, so thats a starting point for change. Then, pending free agent D Matt Niskanen is coming off a career year that should price him out of the Penguins cap, as will Brooks Orpik, so there will be openings on the blueline for young defencemen to step in and play. In goal, maybe the new regime sticks with Marc-Andre Fleury for the final year of his contract, or maybe they will be more aggressive and go for sweeping changes. If the Penguins are inclined to move Fleury or James Neal or Kris Letang, that would be a big-splash move. Given their lack of depth on defence, moving Letang would be risky, but if Rutherford is inclined to shake things up, maybe the Penguins will look different than they did in 2013-2014, and maybe thats not an altogether bad idea. The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- Corsi, adjusted for zone starts, quality of competition and quality of teammates, hits, blocked shots, penalty differential and faceoffs. Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be around 70, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90.

Sounds great, right? Well, it was up until the playoffs, when Crosby had a positively mortal showing, with one goal and nine points in 13 games. His possession numbers in the playoffs were still outstanding, but when the Penguins leave the playoffs earlier than expected, no one wants possession stats, they want goals. So, Crosbys rep takes a hit for that playoff slump, but hes still the best in the game so long as he stays healthy. Injuries have started to pose a problem for Evgeni Malkin over the past couple seasons, as hes missed 39 games in two years since he led the league in scoring 2011-2012. While Crosby has been the leagues top even-strength point producer over the past couple seasons, Malkin ranks 19th, which is good, but not befitting his skill level, which is right at the top of the league. Over the same time frame, hes more effective with the man advantage, ranking fifth in points/60 during 5-on-4 play. So long as the Penguins have those two, they have a chance to contend for the Cup but, as weve seen over the past five seasons, it cant be just those two. The supporting cast matters. Since the start of the 2011-2012 season, James Neal ranks fifth in goals (88) and tied for 17th in points (178) with strong possession stats, yet hes another player coming off a disappointing playoff performance (2 G, 2 A in 13 GP) and has been mentioned as a possible trade candidate if the Penguins are looking for a major shake-up. Neal is on a very reasonable contract, for the next four seasons, but maybe thats what makes him even more appealing and could yield the highest rate of return. Dealing a 26-year-old scoring power forward isnt an easy decision, but is an option available to new GM Rutherford. A 34-year-old coming off a career-best season, Chris Kunitz set career-best marks in goals (35), points (68) and played a career-high 19:09 per game. However, he faded down the stretch, with 13 points in 24 games from the start of February through the end of the regular season and he consistently gets leveled with criticism that his production is tied to his place on Crosbys wing. No matter with whom Kunitz has played, his possession numbers have always been excellent, so he warrants a top-six role, but as he hits his mid-thirties, its also reasonable to expect decline. Pascal Dupuis missed more than half of the 2013-2014 season after tearing his ACL, and while hes been a solid player alongside Crosby, theres a feeling that the Penguins could do better with a more skilled player in that spot. If Dupuis is back up to speed next season, he should have an opportunity to reclaim his old gig, but it wouldnt come as a shock if the 35-year-old, with one season of more than 50 points on his resumé, was placed into more of a checking/two-way role. A couple injuries, most notably wrist surgery, limited Beau Bennett to just 21 games in his second pro season and while his point production hasnt yet broken through, he had impressive possession numbers and saw regular time in a top-six role once he returned to the lineup. Going into next season, Bennett may have first crack at a spot on one of the Penguins scoring lines. Craig Adams has missed two games in the past five seasons and the durable checker doensnt cheat on the effort he gives night-in and night-out. He also scores remarkably little for as much as he plays -- the 12:28 per game he logged last season representing his highest average time on ice since 2003-2004. Thats probably too much ice time for a 37-year-old who has been getting obliterated in possession terms for a while now, but Adams is an inexpensive depth forward with two Stanley Cups to his credit. Similarly durable, Brandon Sutter has missed one game in the past four seasons and while he gets fed defensive zone starts as the Penguins No. 3 center, Sutter has been getting thumped possession-wise with the Penguins. Maybe thats a function of subpar linemates, and that could be improved with offseason additions, but Sutter could use a better season in 2014-2015 to establish his credentials as a two-way checking centre. The priority for the Penguins this offseason should be to upgrade their third and fourth lines. While that might be considered tweaking, adding three or four legitimate forwards to the roster is more than cosmetic change. How the Penguins fill out their forward vacancies will be hugely important, but its not going to be easy. Even with young, inexpensive defencemen on the roster, the Penguins have marquee players like Crosby, Malkin and Neal that take up a good chunk of the cap room and when the Penguins need to add as many bodies as they do, it would really help to find a bargain or two. Some options that could be of interest include: Nikolai Kulemin, Blake Comeau, Brian Boyle, Steve Ott, Steve Downie, Derek MacKenzie, Manny Malhotra, Jay McClement and Peter Regin; the Pegnuins also may want to re-sign Brian Gibbons, who showed enough in half a season to warrant a full-time role.   Returning Defence Player Rating GP G A PTS CF% Cap Hit Kris Letang 74.43 37 11 11 22 48.8% $7.25M Paul Martin 73.40 39 3 12 15 49.2% $5.0M Olli Maatta 66.91 78 9 20 29 50.5% $894K Robert Bortuzzo 61.14 54 0 10 10 45.4% $600K Rob Scuderi 555. Eden Hazard Jersey. 52 53 0 4 4 43.9% $3.375M Free Agent Defence Player Rating GP G A PTS CF% Class 13-14 Cap Hit Matt Niskanen 74.53 81 10 36 46 53.4% UFA $2.3M Brooks Orpik 63.71 72 2 11 13 46.2% UFA $3.75M Deryk Engelland 62.01 56 6 6 12 43.8% UFA $567K There are some complicated situations on this Penguins roster and none may be more challenging than Kris Letang, an elite puck-moving defenceman who has played more than 24 minutes per game for four straight seasons and was third in Norris Trophy voting in 2012-2013. However, Letang had quite a 2013-2014 season, marked by suffering a stroke which, combined with other injuries, contributed to his missing 45 games. When he did play, Letang finished with a career-high 11 goals, yet his relative possession stats were the worst of his career and he also had the lowest on-ice shooting percentage of his career, which is most likely a run of bad luck. With all that in the file, along with Letangs pricey contract extension kicking in, its possible that hes part of a major shake-up, though the stroke might make it difficult for another team to pull the trigger, no matter how well Letang has played when healthy. A broken leg and broken hand cost Paul Martin more than half of last season, and while Martin has handled a heavy workload for the Penguins -- nearly 25 minutes per game over the past couple seasons -- hes also seen his puck possession numbers dip, which could be function of others in the Pittsburgh lineup, but it doesnt reflect well on Martin. Hes 33 and heading into the final year of his contract, so an extension is possible, or maybe the new regime will be fine to let Martin play it out. Olli Maatta had a wonderful rookie season, earning a bigger role with his steady play. The 19-year-old was poised and not afraid to join the play -- his 29 points ranking fifth among teen defencemen since 2000 -- so while he arrived without too much fanfare last season, expectations will justifiably be higher for Maatta next year. It wont be easy, however, since hes not likely to be ready for the start of the year as he recovers from off-season shoulder surgery. A physical presence when hes in the lineup, Robert Bortuzzo saw action in a career-high 54 games last season and hes on the edge of a spot in the lineup. He doesnt move the puck well enough to climb the depth chart, but as a six or seven, hes probably a reasonable fit. Times get tough for defensive defencemen as they age, what with the wear and tear of constant battles and blocked shots, and so it goes with 35-year-old Rob Scuderi, a two-time Cup winner who was stuck in his own end a lot last season. The good news for the Penguins is that they have defence in the pipeline. Simon Despres, Brian Dumoulin, Derrick Pouliot (when healthy) are all prospects that should be able to help, very soon.

He was even okay in this years playoffs, his .915 save percentage in the postseason was the second-best of his career. He has one year left on his current contract and its possible that the Penguins will let that play out, but maybe not. 27-year-old Jeff Zatkoff finally reached The Show, while Tomas Vokoun was out for the season, and Zatkoff was a serviceable backup for 20 games, earning a new contract that makes him a very inexpensive backup. Provided his play doesnt slip too far, Zatkoff could provide nice value. Top Prospects Player Pos.

An elite puck-moving defenceman who can run the power play and blast from the point, Pouliot had 102 points in 79 WHL (regular season plus playoff) games last season. His arrival in the NHL will be delayed as he recovers from shoulder surgery, but even if that means hes not an option for the first hallf of next season, theres a chance that Pouliot could contribute after that. A new regime may be just what the doctor ordered for Simon Despres, the 30th pick in the 2009 Draft, who has played well in his NHL opportunities, putting up 16 points in 85 career games, but also hasnt been able to lock up a regular spot. With free agents likely on the move and Pouliot recovering from surgery, Despres should have a very good chance to stick with Pittsburgh next season. Acquired from Carolina in the Jordan Staal trade, Brian Dumoulin had a strong season with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton and got into six games with Pittsburgh. He has good size, which he could use more, but can move the puck and handle big minutes in the AHL. Could be time for a longer look at the next level. Drafted in the second round last summer, Tristan Jarry backstopped Edmonton to the Memorial Cup, handling a heavy workload (84 games between regular season and playoffs). Hes a 19-year-old goaltender, so its going to take some time before hes ready to challenge for a spot. Picked in the second round in 2011, Scott Harrington had a solid first pro campaign and projects to be a shutdown defender when he reaches Pittsburgh. That day may not be too far down the road. Taken in the third round in 2012, Matt Murray had an excellent season with Saulte Ste. Marie of the OHL, an indication that perhaps hes starting to reach his potential. The 6-foot-5 tender needs to fill out and will have time in the AHL to further develop his game. Of course, having Jarry in the organization too ought to ensure that Murray isnt complacent as he climbs the ladder. Signed as a free agent out of Nebraska-Omaha, Jayson Megna split last season between the AHL and NHL, putting up nine pints (5 G, 4 A) in 36 games with Pittsburgh. He could have a chance to compete for a depth role next season. A sixth-round pick in 2011, Josh Archibald had 79 points in 76 games over his last two collegiate seasons and joined Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at seasons end. Hes small, but will get the chance to show that he can use his speed to create scoring opportunities as a pro. Two-way centre Oskar Sundqvist was a third-round pick in 2012 and played in the Swedish Hockey League for league champs Skelleftea last season. See how he adjusts to North America and go from there. There are a few blueliners ahead of Philip Samuelsson on the Penguins organizational depth chart, but the 2009 second-rounder has made steady progress, getting into five games with Pittsburgh last season. A smallish playmaker, Jake Guentzel was a third-round pick last summer and then had a strong freshman season at Nebraska-Omaha (same school as Megna and Archibald). With a few years to fill out and get stronger, hell have a chance to be a solid pro. It wasnt the easiest first pro season for Anton Zlobin, a sixth-round pick in 2012, who spent some time in the ECHL (scoring 11 points in 10 games), but he had 10 points in his last 17 regular season games, then 10 points in 15 playoff games. If he continues on that path next season, his production will get him noticed.

New Jordans 2017 is without question aiming to replicate or even surpass the success of the 2016 Space Jams. While this year’s Jordan 11 releases could accomplish that feat, the rumored return of the Air Jordan 11 “Concord” in Holiday 2018 may be the release that gives Jordan Brand something to boast about yet again. Nothing’s confirmed thus far, but if the Concord Jordan 11 is indeed set for a return, expect the “updated” Jordan 11 shape, the potential of “45” on the heel, special edition packaging, full family sizes, and perhaps a major marketing campaign (something surrounding red carpets and tuxedos).
We have seen the Concord 2017 Air Jordan Shoes release three times while 2018 will make it the fourth. Originally released during 1995, we saw the first retro release take place in 2000. We also saw a similar pair release in 2006 part of the Defining Moments Pack, except they had a Gold Jumpman.How much of an effect this will have on the whole process remains to be seen, but at the very least those of you in the more western parts of the country will get a bit more sleep in time during the weekend.
This Kyrie 3 For Sale is the second colorway set to drop in 2014. Coming in the classic white, black and dark concord featuring a white-based upper with black patent leather sitting on a white midsole and icy translucent outsole.No word on if this release will include “45” or “23” on the heels. But all other details like a White mesh upper, Black patent leather and Dark Concord accents will be the same. The shoe will resemble the original pair from 1995.As indicated above, everything you’ve come to love about the classic Concord is retained – shimmering black patent leather; inlaid white mesh; black liner; icy blue outsole – simply in a shorter, sleeker silhouette that’s ideal for the summer shorts-wearer.
Buy Cheap Adidas Yeezy is a never launched color, the most special is the suede material and patent leather at the metal texture details, although the overall tone is dim, but not at all low-key, the outside At the end with the Air Jordan 11 "72-10" similar to the white outsole, see a kind of low to help version of the Air Jordan 11 "72-10" feeling. Its dazzling purple metallic luster shoe body, in the texture of suede material in the end and the background against, the full sense of hierarchy! With the light blue on the tongue embellishment trapeze Logo, and with the same blue for the big end of the echoes. This pair of "Rose Gold" full leather upper, coupled with its rose gold dress, gorgeous and very texture. Moreover, this time outsole did not use the recent main blue crystal outsole Nike, but ended with a rose gold outsole, full of sincerity!

A new generation of New Jordans 2017 earlier has been officially released, but also joined NIKEiD online custom shoes service, I believe many Zhan Huang loyal powder has been purchased to start. LeBron 13 series shoes have not yet seen a new color release, but Earlier this week Cleveland Cavaliers against the Memphis Grizzlies, careful shoes fans not difficult to find LeBron James wearing a LeBron 13 PE boots have not been seen, the interesting thing is the body of the body with the Grizzlies away uniform blue navy blue, tongue and Swoosh Logo is placed striking knight yellow tones, very much to meet the intense Match the game.

With a mix of graffiti, colorful elements and mandarin ducks, the LeBron James Family Foundation presents an interesting color palette! Spring once the release of new products are also followed, not long ago NIKE just released KD 8Elite, recently ushered in the LeBron 13 Elite release. As one of the NBA's most famous NBA player NIKE James, I believe LeBron will get more attention in the future. Currently LeBron 13 Elite first introduced red, white, black three colors.
The avant-garde styling of the Kyrie 3 For Sale is much more conservative than the previous KD 8 Elite. Similar to the LeBron 13, the Swoosh logo on the upper, the integrated upper and tongue, the hollow design between the upper and the tongue, and the Crystal Air + Zoom Air cushion are the same as the LeBron 13. LeBron 13 Elite biggest change is the cancellation of the iconic Hyperposite support material, use of carbon fiber as the support panel, so as to ensure the support of the upper, but also significantly reduce the weight of the entire shoe. In addition, the upper also replaced the Kurim Cage mesh, more tough tear.
At present the identity of the Buy Cheap Adidas Yeezy on the photo has not been confirmed, but users generally speculate that this will be Nike Lebron 13 or Soldier 9 shoes outsole. From the photo point of view, this shoe has a big change in the type of shoe looks like a side dagger and with a wave-like midsole, the two sides of the decoration more like Nike LeBron 11 and Nike LeBron 12 lining combination More refined than the original, the outsole has also made a great deal of change, but the specific technology of this pair of shoes, the actual combat effectiveness is not known if we improve.LeBron 13 Low low-cut shoes, which have not been seen for a long time, are about to bring a super-limited color!The soles of the soles in the picture are similar to the Lebron 12 and feature the same split hexagonal Zoom Air unit design as the Lebron 12 except that the number of units is reduced and the rear shoe sole design is different from the Lebron 12.

This small detail represents the full personal identity of the area where George was born and where the Pacers are playing. Boots shoes design, wear on the foot may not be as smooth as eating chocolate as silk, you need to waste a little effort.
