NEW YORK -- Pitcher Nick Goody has been traded from the New York Yankees to the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named or $50,000. Chris Godwin Jersey .The teams said Tuesday the swap must be completed by May 5.A 25-year-old right-hander, Goody had a 4.66 ERA in 27 relief appearances for the Yankees this year, striking out 34 in 29 innings. He was a sixth-round pick in the 2012 amateur draft and was sidelined following reconstructive right elbow surgery in April 2013. Goody made his big league debut in July 2015 and pitched in seven games for New York that year.He was designated for assignment Dec. 15 to open a roster spot needed when the Yankees completed their $86 million, five-year contract with free agent reliever Aroldis Chapman. Vincent Jackson Jersey . After a first half in which he thought "the lid was on the basket," the Toronto Raptors coach watched his squad mount a second half surge to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 98-91. Joe Hawley Jersey . Here are his mid-season NBA awards.  MVP: (KEVIN DURANT-Thunder) - Has been sensational this season and more importantly, the most consistent player in the league. Considering that his team has been without star guard Russell Westbrook and with the free agent departure of sharpshooter Kevin Martin, hes had to carry the majority of the load to not only keep his team afloat but more importantly, at an elite level. http://www.shopbuccaneersauthentic.com/Youth-DeSean-Jackson-Elite-Jersey/ . PETERSBURG, Fla. For 12 monotonous rounds, light heavyweight contender Andre Ward toyed with the painfully slow and overmatched Alexander Brand en route to a shutout decision on Saturday night in a fight every bit the overwhelming mismatch most expected -- but at least it set up one of the most significant and fascinating fights in boxing.Ward, fighting before a hometown crowd of 8,653 at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, won every second of the fight in a 120-108 rout on all three scorecards.It was the final step to a long-awaited showdown with unified light heavyweight titleholder Sergey Kovalev, whom he will meet Nov. 19 on HBO PPV, probably at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, in a fight that has been signed for months. However, Kovalev (30-0-1, 26 KOs) and Ward (30-0, 15 KO) had to successfully navigate interim bouts to seal the deal.In a Russian homecoming defense on July 11, Kovalev, 33, did his part as he retained his 175-pound world title for the eighth time. He scored a seventh-round knockdown and rolled to a one-sided unanimous decision against top-10 contender Isaac Chilemba.And then Ward, 32, the former super middleweight world champion in his second fight since making the move to 175 pounds, took apart Brand, who was as big of an underdog as has ever been seen. According to Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, Ward was a minus-10,000 favorite, meaning somebody would have to bet $10,000 on Ward to win just $100.The fighters purses also made it clear who was supposed to win. Ward made $850,000, and Brand made a measly $30,000, probably the lowest for an HBO-televised main event ever.Ward had his way with Brand, who got the fight only after at least three others turned it down. Ward poked him with hard jabs throughout the fight, confused him when he switched to southpaw in the fifth round and hurt him with right hands to the body.Brand (25-2, 19 KOs), in the meantime, did virtually nothing other than back up, grab, hold and look for a way to survive for 12 rounds.One of Wards stinging jabs opened a cut on Brands left eyelid in the seventh round. But before and after the cut Brand never showed any urgency. Ward, 32, at least appeared to be going for a knockout in the later rounds, but Brand,, 39, a former amateur standout from Colombia, has a reputation for having an excellent chin. Josh Robinson Jersey. We knew this guy was going to be really, really hard to knock out. Hes a veteran, said Ward, a 2004 Olympic gold medalist who was boxing on the day that the 2016 Olympic tournament began in Rio de Janeiro. People got to realize that when a guy with experience doesnt want to get knocked out, its hard, and hes throwing punches from crazy angles and has got nothing to lose. So I tried to press it. Didnt get it. But its good to get the rounds.According to CompuBox punch statistics, Ward landed ?190 of 490 blows (39 percent), and Brand landed only 45 of 285 (16 percent). Brand never had a round in which he landed double-digit punches, and he landed only two in the second and fourth rounds and just one of 20 punches in the 11th round.When the fight was over, Ward and Kovalev, who had watched at ringside, shook hands in the ring and formally announced their fight in an HBO interview with Max Kellerman.Im excited. Im looking forward to it, Ward said. I want to be the light heavyweight champion of the world. I had to get past this step. He had to get past his step. Ill see you in November.Said Kovalev when asked about the fight: Of course, Im ready. Hes ready. Im ready, too. I want to say lets do this Nov. 19.Ward, who was reluctant to speak about the Kovalev fight despite being asked about it constantly going into his tuneup match with Brand, showed immense respect for his next opponent.You got to respect Sergey for the way hes gotten to where hes got, Ward said. He hasnt had soft touches. He wasnt protected. And he wasnt really pushed by the media. Hes a guy who should get more credit than he has. The winner of the fight could possibly be pound-for-pound [No. 1].With Kovalev and Ward already top-five stalwarts on virtually every pound-for-pound list, many believe the winner of their toss-up showdown will earn recognition as the best fighter in the world, one of the reasons so many have been looking forward to it. The same could not be said for Ward-Brand.

British tennis executives have been told they have a responsibility to capitalise on the success of role-model Andy Murray. Custom Minnesota Vikings Jerseys .Davis Cup captain Leon Smith has seen signs of positive change, but suggested more could be done to secure a promising future.He [Andy Murray] has created so much exposure, said Smith, his coach between the ages of 11 and 15.Theres a responsibility for British tennis, the LTA, to come up with programmes that will captivate that audience and get them on the tennis court and then stay on it. Its something you cant take for granted.Murray have been an outspoken critic of UK tennis governing body, with the world No.1 again taking a shot?this week.Smith, too, has voiced concern and argued his former student has many more qualities beyond his achievements which the LTA could be making more of.Where Andy separates himself is he wears his heart on his sleeve on the court, Smith said. People can see that and those messages you give to kids about giving your best effort, chasing every ball down, they see it.Everybodys talking about him. Some of these kids havent played before, but its Andy Murray, Andy Murray. Everyones immensely proud of him.Murray will be back on court at Londons O2 Arena on Wednesday afternoon for his second round-robin match at the ATP World Tour Finals.After winning reasonably comfortably against Marin Cilic in his first official match as world No.1 on Monday, Murray could book his place in the semifinals with victory over Kei Nishikori.PA Sport contributed to this report.

Eric Kendricks Jersey . -- When the Florida Panthers fell behind by two goals in the first period to the top team in the NHL, it appeared they were on their way to yet another loss. http://www.shopvikingsauthentic.com/Youth-Ryan-Quigley-Elite-Jersey/ . LUCIE, Fla. Hanging on to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, a desperate Sporting Kansas City travels for a Saturday game at San Jose, a site where Kansas City has not won since 2000.To make things worse, SKC also is riding a 12-game road winless streak dating back to early April. SKC leads Seattle by five points, but the Sounders have two games in hand.An equally desperate San Jose Earthquakes squad, six points below the red line, are hoping to make the MLS playoffs for the first time since 2012, and the three points that would come with a home win would be very handy.Both clubs enter Saturdays match on five-game winless streaks in all competitions. Sporting (11-12-7, 40 points) settled for a pair of home draws in its last two matches. The ninth-place Earthquakes (7-8-13, 34 points) have won just twice over the last four monthsThe problem for San Jose has been the offense. The Earthquakes are last in MLS with 0.96 goals per game and have scored just eight times over their last 10 matches -- a stretch that incluudes six ties and two defeats. Dalvin Cook Jersey. They have even struggled at home, winning just one of their last eight at Avaya Stadium (1-2-5).Sporting had hoped to build on its home success, but back-to-back draws against the Houston Dynamo and Los Angeles Galaxy have left Kansas City searching for answers on the road. The fact that both games saw the opposition score in the closing moments -- Houston late in stoppage time -- makes the draws harder to accept.SKCs Dom Dwyer scored his team-leading 14th goal of the year against Los Angeles, moving into the top five on the MLS scoring charts. Jacob Peterson extended a career high with his sixth goal of the season, five of which have come since July 24. Benny Feilhaber has notched five assists in his last seven appearances.U.S. international forward Chris Wondolowski leads San Jose with 10 goals, but seven of those came before the end of April.

CHASKA, Minn. Gerard Deulofeu Jersey . -- For those U.S. golf fans imagining what its like to have the Ryder Cup residing in America again, there were always going to be three words of cautionavis Love III.When the U.S. captain sat down to fill out his lineup for Sundays 12 singles match, he had a healthy -- and rare -- 9 1/2-6 1/2 lead. On paper at least, Love also had a considerably more talented group of individuals. Consider: The average American player would be ranked 16th in the world; his European counterpart, 28th. The Americans have only two rookies; European captain Darren Clarke is saddled with six.But its worth remembering that the numbers were only slightly different heading into the final day the last time Love was in charge of a U.S. squad. That was in 2012 at Medinah, the biggest difference being that his team was leading 10-6. What happened next made golf history:European captain Jose Maria Olazabal front-loaded his best players, while Love took a too-cautious approach. He saved several of his best players for the last few matches, including Tiger Woods as the anchor. The Europeans won the first five matches and the day, 8 1/2-3 1/2, stealing a win and matching the largest comeback ever in the bargain.Love may have learned his lesson. This time around, hes got it right.No secret that they were going to load the boat, he said.And indeed, Clarke did just that, deciding to stash four of his rookies in the last five slots.Anticipating that, and needing only five points to win, Loves lineup looks balanced and very much based on an idea put forth by Jack Nicklaus, the greatest player ever but a more modest 1-1 as a Ryder Cup captain.Nicklaus argued against stacking your best players at either the front or the back. Instead, he came up with a compromise: Two of your best players to start, two more in the middle and the last two at the end. He felt that gave his team a chance to build momentum, but also to slow the other teams, not to mention some insurance if the result turned on the final matches. Love put Patrick Reed, an absolute bulldog at Hazeltine, off first, where hell face Rory McIlroy, Europes hottest player and its emotional leader thus far. Jordan Spieth is at No. 2, drawing British Open champion and Olympic silver medalist Henrik Stenson.From there, the U.S. looks less formidable -- J.B. Holmes, Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker are Nos. 3, 4 and 5, respectively -- but so does Europe, with Clarke forced to start salting in some of his newbies. Rookie Thomas Pieters goes third, followed by Justin Rose and then another rookie, Rafa Cabrera Bello.Phil Mickelson (5-5) and Sergio Garcia (3-4-1) clash at No. 6. Both are veterans with less than distinguished records in singles. But the longer the competition goes, the better the Americans odds look.U.S. rookie Ryan Moore gets Lee Westwood, 0-3 and mired in his worst Ryder Cup performance, at No. 7. Brandt Snedeker goes next against Andy Sullivan, whos appeared only once and has been locked in Europes team room ever since.In fact, the only match in the final four that looks close -- again, on paper -- pits U.S. rookie Brooks Koepka against Masters champion Danny Willett at No. 10.Its worth noting that Love was on both sides of the historic comebacks in singles. He played for the U.S. squad that first pulled off an 8 1/2-3 1/2 stunner. That came at Brookline in 1999, when Ben Crenshaw was his captain.Crenshaw handed in his front-loaded line-up and left the interview room Saturday night down by a 10-6 deficit -- but not before wagging his finger at reporters and saying, Ive got a good feeling about this.In the team room later that evening, future President George W. Bush read the Death or Victory speech given by Col. William Barrett Travis at the Alamo. Thus primed, the Americans piled up wins in the first seven matches and the Ryder Cup enjoyed a rare stay in the United States.Love was asked what might be discussed in his team room Saturday night, including whether what happened at Medinah four years ago would come up.Me bringing it up? In the team room? he asked.No, Love answered his own question a moment later. We keep looking forward.---Jim Litke is a sports columnist for The Associated Press.

PHILADELPHIA -- The Cleveland Cavaliers were pushed to the limit by the Philadelphia 76ers, and LeBron James doesnt think thats such a bad thing. Mattia De Sciglio Jersey .James scored 25 points, moving into 10th place on the NBAs career list, and added 14 assists and eight rebounds as the unbeaten Cavaliers held off the winless 76ers 102-101 on Saturday night.Its always great to have these kinds of games, James said. We will clean it up. Its a great learning experience for us. I know we have room for improvement.Kevin Love added 20 points and 11 rebounds for the reigning champion Cavaliers, who improved to 6-0.Coach Tyronn Lue wasnt disappointed, either, that the result was so surprisingly close.We stayed poised, Lue said. We were tested tonight. Overall, Im pleased to come out with a win when we had some adversity.Joel Embiid scored 22 points, making all four of his 3-point attempts, but the 76ers dropped to 0-5.James passed Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon by converting a fast-break layup midway through the first quarter. Olajuwon finished his career with 26,946 points.It looked to be an easy night for the Cavaliers at that point. But the 76ers nearly shocked them.Channing Fryes 3-pointer with 1:05 left gave the Cavaliers a 102-101 lead.After a turnover by Philadelphias Sergio Rodriguez, J.R. Smith missed a 3 with 15 seconds left that wouldve clinched it. Philadelphia coach Brett Brown then called a timeout with 7.3 seconds remaining. The 76ers were trying to get the ball to Embiid, but they couldnt and Gerald Henderson turned the ball over as he tried to get a shot off in the final seconds.Henderson said a foul shouldve been called on the play.We tried to run something to get it in to (Embiid), he said. Time was running down so I just took it myself. I got fouled. They didnt call it. And its the end of the game.Said Brown, The tape will show what the tape shows. Thats obviously a tough way to end a great game.James first attempt at passing the record was an emphatic, highlight-reel block by Embiid about 3 1/2 minutes into the contest. After two more misses, James quickly raced up the court for an easy layup to reach the milestone.Its a blessing and an honor, James said.He is No. 12 in scoring on the combined ABA/NBA list.The 76ers remained one of three winless teams in the NBA, along with Dallas and New Orleans. Philadelphia opened last season by tying a league record with 18 straight losses.Philadelphia battled back from an 18-point, first-half deficit.Philadelphia outscored Cleveland 16-9 over the first 5:50 of the final quarter, taking its biggest lead on Hendersons short jumper that made it 96-91 with 6:10 remaining.

But Ersan Ilyasova answered with a 3-pointer 13 seconds later to give the 76ers a 101-99 advantage.The Cavaliers used a 16-0 run to finish the first quarter, helping them to a 34-19 lead. James played all 12 minutes of the opening quarter, finishing with six points, four rebounds and seven assists.The Cavaliers led 57-46 at halftime.NOT THEIR MONTHSThe 76ers have lost their last 42 games in October and November, dating to an overtime win over Milwaukee on Nov. 22, 2013.GOOD ADDITIONIlyasova, playing in his second game for Philadelphia after being acquired on Tuesday from Oklahoma City for Jerami Grant, added 21 points.OFF NIGHTKyrie Irving, who entered ninth in the NBA in scoring (26.0 ppg), scored eight points on 3-for-17 shooting.TIP-INSCavaliers: Cleveland is off to its best start since the 1976-77 Cavaliers opened 8-0.

Matias Fernandez Jersey . LUCIE, Fla. http://www.authenticshopacmilan.com/c-34-marco-storari-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx . With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- C.J. Spiller has one touchdown this season -- and it came against his current team.The speedy running back caught a pass from Russell Wilson while he was with the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4 and took it 8 yards for a score to help beat the New York Jets 27-17 .Just over a month later, Spiller is sharing a locker room with Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets, and theyve been sure to remind him of it.Ive been getting a lot of grief, Spiller said with a smile after his first practice with New York on Thursday. Fitzpatrick, he gave me grief and he said the least I can be is a plus-one now. So, I have to score, then score another one just to make up for that touchdown a couple of weeks ago.Spiller started the season with New Orleans, which released him on Sept. 13. He was signed by Seattle on Sept. 28 , and made his Seahawks debut against the Jets on Oct. 2.But he played in only two games with Seattle, gaining 9 yards on three carries and catching five passes for 43 yards and that lone TD. The Seahawks cut him last Wednesday and the Jets, who had worked him out earlier this season, signed him Thursday .Its been a crazy ride getting here, Spiller said.Spiller is also reunited with offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, who coached him during his best seasons in Buffalo. In 2012, Spiller ran for a career-high 1,244 yards and six touchdowns with the Bills, and also set a personal best with 43 receptions for 459 yards and two TDs. During that season, Spiller had TD runs of 56 and 49 yards in the opener against the Jets, and caught a 66-yard TD pass -- from Fitzpatrick -- in the season finale.I think he recalled a lot in the one day weve had him, Gailey said. I think he recalled a good bit of how we were talking, the verbiage that we use. So it makes him viable to be able to play quicker. Now whether or not thats this week, or not, I dont know.For now, the Jets envision him as the No. 3 running back who could potentially contribute as a returner.Hes a very versatile guy, Gailey said. He can run the ball, he can catch the ball out of the backfield, and he did all those kind of things for us. Well have to wait and see how it fits all together. But hes got ability. Obviously hes got ability or else he wouldnt be here.The 29-year-old Spiller, a 2010 first-round pick out of Cleemson, has rushed for 3,442 yards and 12 touchdowns, and caught 197 passes for 1,477 yards and nine TDs in seven seasons. Blank Jersey. But he has never been able to live up to or duplicate the numbers he put up four seasons ago.He broke his collarbone in 2014 and played in just nine games before signing a four-year, $18 million contract with the Saints the following offseason. Spiller played in 13 games with New Orleans, and a highlight was his 80-yard touchdown reception -- Drew Brees 400th career TD pass -- in a Week 4 overtime win against Dallas. But Spillers role diminished and he was passed on the depth chart, to the point he was inactive for this years opener and then released a few days later.There are a lot of variables, Spiller said. Going to New Orleans and having an injury, and trying to fight my way back and trying to play through that, and this year, they decided to go in a different direction.His stay in Seattle was short, and the one-time Pro Bowl selection was looking for his third team in a matter of weeks.I know Im a great player, he said. I know I can play in this league. My confidence is not down, so Im excited about the opportunity that I have here.Spiller joins a backfield that already includes Matt Forte and Bilal Powell, but thinks he can be a valuable addition to the Jets running game despite his subpar last few seasons.Its just believing in yourself when nobody else does, he said. My inner circle, they believe in me. My family believes in me. Most important, my daughter believes in me. Everybody else, thats just noise that I ignore and dont worry about what people put on their blogs or what people say on their newscasts or whatever. I block all that stuff out and prepare the best way I can to be the best player I can.Which means Spiller expects to play at a high level, the same type of playmaker who made the Pro Bowl in 2012.I really do, he said. The only thing you can really do is just go out there and work. I think my man Marshawn (Lynch) said it best: `Talk will never solve anything.

The Colorado Avalanche were fortunate enough to win the NHL Draft Lottery, which should help the franchise turn a corner. Colton Sceviour Jersey . They have stockpiled talent through the draft and its time to take a step ahead, adding one more blue-chipper to the talent pool. Off-Season Game Plan looks at the Colorado Avalanche and what they might do to move forward. The Avalanche have missed the playoffs for three consecutive seasons, which cost head coach Joe Sacco his job, but the blame doesnt fall squarely on Sacco. The Avalanche have some skilled young players, but a shaky defence and subpar goaltending have proven to be issues that they havent been able to overcome. Colorado is aiming for a change in culture this offseason, moving franchise great Joe Sakic into a more prominent role as Executive VP of Hockey Operations, giving him final say on hockey decisions. Who knows if Sakic is going to be an astute judge of talent, but he seems like a thoughtful guy and hes taken his time to learn the business a bit before jumping into a position of responsibility. "I really believe that Stan and Josh are committed to this franchise and want us to get back to where we used to be and compete for the Stanley Cup," said Sakic. "Because of their commitment, its definitely the right time for me to take a more active role." One of the first orders of business for the Avalanche will be to find a new coach. Lindy Ruff, Dave Tippett, Guy Boucher, Dean Chyoweth and Patrick Roy areamong those that might be possibilities to replace Sacco. While consciously not mentioning any names, Sakic mentioned, at his introductory press conference, that he expected the new coach to be "very passionate." With the management structure set and once a coach is in place, the Avalanche will get to make the first pick in the 2013 draft and make any other roster decisions with the knowledge that they have an emerging core of young talent around which to build. It becomes a matter of finding the right pieces to surround their recent top picks. "Will we be adding payroll? I think that comes as players get older," said new Avalanche President Josh Kroenke. The bottom line for the new regime is that the Avalanche have to turn the corner and start producing results. Better goaltending and improved defence have to be priorities, but there is reason for optimism, moreso than with most teams that are drafting first overall. 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) -- plus-minus, hits, blocked shots, giveaways, takeaways, penalty differential and faceoffs. (Stats are listed in this format: G-A-PTS, +/-, PIM, GP). Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be 70-plus, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90. Sidney Crosby finished at the top of the 2013 regular season ratings with a 93.65. Salary cap information all comes from the indispensable www.capgeek.com.

Duchene is just 22 and has the speed and skills to be a point-per-game scorer as he hits the prime years of his career. When the Avalanche signed PA Parenteau as a free agent last summer, there was some question whether or not the late bloomers production was a result of his time spent on John Tavares wing while with the Islanders, but Parenteau dismissed that notion with the best per-game scoring rate of his career. The 30-year-old has puck skills and offensive instincts that make him a fine complement to a dynamic playmaker like Duchene. A contentious contract negotiation that dragged into the season allowed time for a more in-depth examination of Ryan OReillys career and while some might be caught up in his point totals -- which are actually quite good for his age -- OReillys overall value, as a two-way player, is very high. That his production didnt really improve from the previous season isnt a terrible indictment of the 22-year-old; he joined the season in progress after the Avalanche matched the offer sheet that OReilly signed with the Calgary Flames and, while he dominated in puck possession metrics, OReilly had some poor puck luck. The question should no longer be whether or not OReilly is a very talented player, only what the Avalanche will do with him going forward. Whether they get him signed to an extension or trade him because, while OReillys cap hit is $5-million for next season, his salary will be $6.5-million, which is then the base for his qualifying offer as a restricted free agent in the summer of 2014. The ideal will be to work out a long-term deal because OReilly is a player around which the Avalanche can build. 20-year-old team captain Gabriel Landeskog endured a rough second season, missing a dozen games with injuries, but hes a very good two-way player who has offensive upside, which makes him a good fit on a line with OReilly because they can face the oppositions best lines on a nightly basis. With 77 points in 119 games over the last two seasons, Paul Stastny has fallen off the scoring pace that he established earlier in his career. He did play more of a two-way role this season, starting more shifts in the defensive zone than ever before, but Stastny isnt paid to be a good two-way player with decent offensive production. At a $6.6-million cap hit, Stastny needs to score and, with one year left on his contract, it is conceivable that the Avalanche would consider moving the 27-year-old in hopes of maximizing return before he hits free agency next summer. However, if there is uncertainty over OReillys future in Colorado, Stastny may provide insurance down the middle. A checker who can play centre or wing, John Mitchell had the most productive year of his career, playing a career-high 16:45 per game, ranking third on the team in hits and second among forwards (behind Duchene) in blocked shots. It would have been unreasonable to expect Jamie McGinn to pick up where he left off when he was acquired by the Avalanche in 2011-2012, finishing that season with eight goals and 13 points in 17 games, so his regression wasnt a surprise. Even so, the 24-year-old has good size, isnt afraid to use it, crashing in the corners and going to the net, so he can fit as a complementary piece in the top six, maybe top nine on a better team. Steve Downie suffered a torn ACL in the second game of the season, and his absence was felt. There arent a lot of players that can play like Downie, capable of contributing offensively, while also playing on (and sometimes over) the edge. From 2009-2010 through 2011-2012, there were three players who scored 40 goals and had at least 400 penalty minutes -- Downie, Steve Ott and Scott Hartnell (who, admittedly, scored 75 goals in that time). If Downies aggression is channeled in the right direction, hes capable of playing on a scoring line. After a couple of seasons with reduced ice time, Cody McLeod played a career-high 13:05 for the Avalanche. McLeod still led the Avalanche with seven fights, so he hasnt left that part of his game behind. He can play a regular shift, just maybe somewhere between last seasons role and the year before, when he played a career-low 7:12 per game. David Jones was signed to an ill-advised four-year, $16-million contract by the Avalanche last summer, and followed up with the least productive season of his career. He was one of 16 forwards to play at least 500 minutes and score three or fewer goals (one of 12 to score fewer than 10 points). That kind of production, with that contract, could make Jones a candidate for a compliance buyout, but the Avalanche havent been a cap team, so that doesnt have as much benefit as it would for some other teams. It wouldnt be unreasonable to hope that the two-time 20-goal scorer could recapture some of that form, but that is a $4-million wager (ie. the potential savings of buying out the last three years and $12-million on his contract). Mark Olver has been on the fringe of the Avalanche lineup for the last three years, accumulating 22 points in 74 career games, playing 11:00 per game. Hes small, but quick and scrappy enough to fill an energy role for a bargain price. Acquired off waivers from Montreal, Aaron Palushaj has 14 points in 66 career games, but got more of an opportunity with the Avalanche and is likely battling for a spot on the roster. He has good speed and decent skills; will it be enough for the 23-year-old to secure a regular NHL job? 22-year-old Tomas Vincour was picked up in a trade from Dallas, and while he has decent size with hopes of potentially being a scoring winger, Vincour has 16 points in 88 career games, so it remains to be seen if he can fulfill any of that potential. Brad Malones offensive upside is limited, but he might be a safer bet in a fourth-line checking role as he can play centre or wing and provides a physical dimension, which can be a prerequisite for a spot lower on the depth chart. How the Avalanche shape their forward lines may depend on whether or not they keep Stastny. If they keep him, theyre strong and deep down the middle, but if theyre not likely to contend in 2013-2014, they might be better served to find out what assets the market will bring in return for the final year of Stastnys deal. If they do hit the free agent market, the Avalanche could look for some improved depth on the wings, potentially a reasonably-priced option that could fit in the top nine. A couple of Chicago Blackhawks free agents, Bryan Bickell and Viktor Stalberg, might be reasonable options to consider.

First, lets deal with those under contract for next season. Ankle problems limited Ryan Wilson to only a dozen games, but the 26-year-old has proven to be a reliable pro. Hes not flashy or physically imposing, but Wilson sacrifices to do the job and is a reliable part of the machine, so long as hes healthy, though thats a bit of an issue as hes never played more than 67 games in an NHL season. Tyson Barrie is a dynamic young defenceman, capable of joining the rush and quarterbacking a power play, though hes still going through some of the growing pains that 21-year-old puck-moving defencemen tend to experience. Even with some mistakes along the way, and less than ideal size, Barrie looks like a keeper due to his strong puck skills and intelligent play. 34-year-old Jan Hedad is an unheralded performer, but a steadying influence and, with good size (6-foot-4, 237 pounds), he performs well in a shutdown defensive role. After making a positive impression as a rookie pro in 2011-2012, 22-year-old Stefan Elliott might have taken a half step back last season, spending more time than expected in the American Hockey League, but Elliott finished the year in the NHL, getting a chance to audition for next years team. Hes not very physical and his defensive play could improve, but Elliotts ability to move the puck should give him a chance to stick. Though he struggled in his first couple years with the Avalanche, Matt Hunwick emerged in a prominent role for Colorado last season, playing 21:31 per game, second only to Barrie (21:35) among Colorado defencemen. Hunwick is small, but a strong skater and seems to have established his place as a bona fide NHL defenceman. Its hard to believe that Erik Johnson is only 25, but hes endured quite a bit since he was drafted first overall in 2006. Coming off an injury-plagued season in which he scored four points in 31 games, Johnson can still be a factor for the Avalanche, but it appears that hes not the No.1 franchise defenceman they were hoping they acquired when they dealt Kevin Shattenkirk and Chris Stewart to St. Louis. While Hunwick moved up the Avalanche depth chart, Shane OBrien went the other way, down from 19:13 per game in 2011-2012 to 15:30 last season, playing 28 of 48 games, even though he produced strong possession numbers when he did play. OBrien has size and provides toughness, even if hes not as rambunctious as he was when he arrived in the league. There arent many in the league who put their bodies on the line the way that Greg Zanon has, ranking in the top three in blocked shots in four of the last five seasons, but he was also a career-worst minus-16 with poor possession numbers last season. With one year remaining on his contract, its possible that Zanon would be relatively easy to move in order to clear a logjam of eight defencemen already signed for next season. That logjam is an issue because, barring a surprise, the Avalanche will have the opportunity to draft Seth Jones with the first pick in the 2013 draft. Jones is an outstanding talent, with size and skills that give him a chance to be a franchise defenceman and hes good enough to start, and play significant minutes, in the NHL next season. If hes doing that in Colorado, then the Avalanche have to find room for the others on their blueline.

That might not make him overly popular in the room, but hes played 575 NHL games, won a Stanley Cup and a Conn Smythe Trophy in different years, so hes got credibility as the senior citizen on this team. It also turns out that hes been a reliable goaltender for the Avs and is one of the better backup options in the league. It hasnt been a smooth road for Semyon Varlamov, who played really well (1.74 GAA, .946 SV% in 16 GP) in the KHL during the lockout, but his play got progressively worse during the NHL season, leaving him with a career-worst .903 save percentage. Jonathan Quick and Ilya Bryzgalov were the only two other goaltenders to play at least 30 games and have an even-strength save percentage lower than Varlamovs .911 mark. Understandably, the Avalanche dont necessarily want to give up hope on 25-year-old Varlamov -- especially considering whats happened with former Avalanche goaltender Craig Anderson (or even Brian Elliott) in recent seasons -- but next season should be critical for Varlamov. Should Varlamov struggle, the Avalanche may have an heir apparent in the organization. 21-year-old Calvin Pickard impressed in his first pro campaign and while there is no rush, if he plays well in the AHL next season, Pickard could emerge as an alternative if Varlamov doesnt perform better.

High celebrations are afoot at Cambridge this weekend to mark the 150th anniversary of Fenners. Thunder Jerseys Outlet . The university will play one-day matches against an XI raised by Frank Fenner, great-great nephew of Francis Philip Fenner, on Saturday and against MCC, the first opponents in 1848, on Sunday.Roger Knight, secretary of MCC, will lead a side including the great Majid Khan, Russell Cake and Paul Parker. Derek Randall, the university coach, will have Derek Pringle, Nick Cook and some of the best of the Millfield boys coached by Frank Fenner during his 10 years in charge of cricket at the school. F P Fenner, who had a tobacco and cigar business in Cambridge and was a playing contemporary of Fuller Pilch and Alfred Mynn, laid out and rented his matchless sward at the request of the university cricketers, who wanted to get away from the hoi-polloi of Parkers Piece. It has been the most fruitful nursery of talent ever since, with the Oxford Parks not too far behind.The intention of the England Cricket Board to facilitate centres of excellence at anything up to six universities, with subsequent attachment to counties, within the next few years has important implications for all young cricketers. John Carr, the Boards cricket operations manager, visualises Oxford and Cambridge entertaining the counties as usual, meanwhile, with the possibility of Durham University also doing so if fixture patterns permit.There are few first-class cricketers or writers who have the privilege of recording the game for whom the name Fenners does not provoke nostalgic recollection: Bradman on a fresh May morning bowled for a duck by Jack Davies, sleeves flapping, with an off-break that didnt and his walk back with a half-smile amidst a disappointed hush: an imperial 185 by Ted Dexter, 105 of them before lunch, against Lancashire, the evidence of which fuelled my criticism of his omission from MCCs selection for Australia a year later: a mere 30 or so by Michael Bushby against Ray Lindwall which evoked high praise from the Australians.Such pictures come readily to my mind along with - a sharp descent in quality - my one appearance there for Middlesex, 12 and 26, the first innings abbreviated by a monstrous lbw decision by the elderly university umpire which, of course, I accepted without the very faintest suggestion of dissent.

DETROIT -- Joaquin Benoit is enjoying a little extra attention these days. Eric Gordon Jersey . Thats taken some getting used to for Detroits setup man-turned-closer. The Tigers are promoting Benoits campaign to win the final vote for the American League All-Star team, and on a night when orange "Vote BENOIT" shirts were all over Comerica Park, the veteran right-hander closed out Detroits 8-5 victory over the Chicago White Sox. "A little bit shaky -- I guess too excited for everything thats going on with the fan votes," Benoit said. "If I dont get there, Im really just happy because everybodys voting for me." Benoit walked two in the ninth, but was able to finish the game. Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera -- who are already on the All-Star team -- had three hits apiece for the Tigers on Wednesday night, including a two-run homer by Fielder. Detroit allowed 23 hits in an 11-4 loss to the White Sox on Tuesday, but it was the Tigers who did the slugging early on in this game. Fielder lined his two-run shot to right field in the first inning for his 16th homer of the year. Alex Avilas two-run single in the third put Detroit ahead 5-1. Conor Gillaspie and Gordon Beckham homered for Chicago. Detroits Rick Porcello (6-6) allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings. The Tigers bullpen has been shaky all season, but Benoit has been used more as a closer lately. Hes now 8-for-8 in save chances, and he lowered his ERA to 1.69. Hes part of a group of five relievers up for a final vote for the AL All-Star team. The others are Torontos Steve Delabar, the New York Yankees David Robertson, Texas Tanner Scheppers, and Bostons Koji Uehara. "Its probably the only thing I havent accomplished in my career," Benoit said. "Ive been to the World Series last year, Ive been to the playoffs. Ive been a starter, Ive been a reliever. Ive done almost everything -- now an All-Star game wouldnt be bad." The Tigers extended their AL Central lead over second-place Cleveland to 3 1/2 games. Chicagos Dylan Axelrod (3-6) allowed seven runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Cabreras run-scoring single in the sixth pushed his major league-leading RBI total to 93. "Its hard to put in perspective," Porcello said. "Thats a career season for the majority of guys in baseball, and thats only his first half." Chicagos Alex Rios was hitless a night after going 6 for 6, and the White Sox never led Wednesday. After Gillaspies homer in the second, the Tigers made it 3-1 on Austin Jacksons RBI triple in the bottom of the inning. Axelrods problems continued in the third when Avila lined a single to right with the bases loaded. The ball landed just in front of a diving Rios, and two runs came home. "Ax wasnt sharp, and thats a tough lineup to face when you dont have your best stuff," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "His velocity was down all night, and he wasnt getting much from his pitches. When you do that against the Tigers, they will squeeze you, make you throw the ball over the plate and then they beat you." Axelrod has allowed 29 earned runs in 28 innings in his last six starts. Porcello won his second straight start -- he blanked Cleveland for seven innings last week.

Porcello struck out six without a walk. Detroit added three runs in the sixth on consecutive RBI singles by Cabrera, Fielder and Victor Martinez. That made it 8-3, but Tigers reliever Bruce Rondon allowed Beckhams homer and an RBI double by Alexei Ramirez in a shaky seventh.

This time, however, it is Cory Schneiders name that is the topic of discussion. TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported Saturday morning that his sources indicate the Canucks are considering moving their 27-year-old netminder and that the Edmonton Oilers might well be in on the action. Dreger continued that the talks may be a contingency plan in the event the team is unable to move Roberto Luongo, who has been the subject of trade rumours for more than a year. The asking price is believed to start with a first round draft pick and a prospect, according to Dreger, though he added that the talks may simply believed to be a way to gauge Schneiders worth on the open market. Schneider posted a 17-9-4 record in 30 regular season games with the Canucks last season, his first in Vancouver earning the majority of the teams starts. A late-season injury would hand the starters role over to Luongo for the beginning of the Canucks opening-round series against the San Jose Sharks. The Canucks would lose both Luongos starts in the first two games, but would fare no better under Schneider. Schneider would get chased from the net after conceding five goals in Game 3. He returned to start Game 4, but the Sharks would complete the series sweep with a 4-3 overtime win. Steve Francis Jersey. Luongo - who has spent the last seven seasons in Vancouver has become a difficult piece to trade for the Canucks by virtue of the 12-year, $64 million deal he signed with the Canucks prior to the 2010-11 season. Nine years and more than $40 million remain on that deal, which carries an average annual value of $5.33 million. The Canucks were believed to be in talks with the Toronto Maple Leafs prior to the 2013 NHL Trade Deadline, but no deal was completed prior to 3pm et on Deadline Day. The Leafs have since acquired goaltender Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings. Schneider has played parts of five seasons with the Canucks, posting a 55-26-8 record in 98 games played. During that time he has earned a .927 career save percentage and a 2.20 goals-against average. He is 1-4 in 10 career playoff games with a .922 save percentage and a 2.59 goals-against average. Schenider was originally drafted 26th overall by the Canucks at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft. He has two years remaining on a three-year, $12 million deal he signed with the Canucks prior to the 2012-13 season. He is slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of that deal.
