game where we have to play well

  • BUFFALO, N. Jordan 5 For Sale NZ .Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres are moving on without the longtime face of their franchise. And they know the experience will be anything but ordinary. "When a guy like Ryan Miller gets traded, thats not a normal player getting traded," interim head coach Ted Nolan said. "He was the face of the organization for a long, long time. To lose a player like him, its tough." Tough, yes, but perhaps good practice for a team that could be offloading several more veterans before Wednesdays trade deadline, as general manager Tim Murray continues efforts to fix the NHLs worst team. Murray traded Miller and captain Steve Ott to St. Louis on Friday. Buffalo acquired goaltender Jaroslav Halak, right wing Chris Stewart, prospect William Carrier, a 2015 first-round draft pick and a conditional pick. Its unlikely to end there. Christian Ehrhoff said Friday that he recently complied with the Sabres request to submit a list of eight teams that would make up the no-trade clause of his contract. Soon-to-be unrestricted free agents Matt Moulson and Henrik Tallinder could also move, and Murray has said contract status doesnt dictate availability. Even Halak or Stewart could be traded. "Theyre pieces that will be Buffalo Sabres when they pass their physicals and after that its the same as everybody else," Murray said. "And what I said, if it makes sense it makes sense. ... If theyre Buffalo Sabres, they play here and were happy with them." The overhaul began under Murrays predecessor, Darcy Regier, who was fired in November. The Sabres traded numerous high-priced veterans last season, including captain Jason Pominville. It continued into October, when Thomas Vanek was traded to the New York Islanders for Moulson and two high draft picks. The Sabres, as a result, have stockpiled picks. They could have as many as two first-round and three second-round selections in this years draft, with 10 total picks over the first two rounds of the next two drafts. Buffalo also has a solid group of prospects in its farm system, including defencemen Rasmus Ristolainen and Nikita Zadorov, who were both drafted in the first round in June. Murrays objective is to add more draft picks or young prospects, and hes been clear about his intentions to make the team better regardless of cost. "Theres no untouchables," Murray said before the Miller trade. "Its a rebuild." And for the players remaining on the team, its a big opportunity to take a leadership role. In the case of Enroth, its a chance to become a teams No. 1 goaltender for the first time in his career. "If you dont call this a chance, I dont know what a chance is," Enroth said, later adding, "I truly believe I can be a No. 1 guy here." Nolan noticed changes almost immediately after the trade was announced, as Ott and Miller said their goodbyes to teammates. "You could really see it on Drew Staffords face the most," Nolan said Friday. "Him and Matt Moulson really took over the leadership tonight with this young group." Stafford is now the longest-tenured Sabre and the only player left from the 2006-07 team that won the Presidents Trophy, though Tallinder left as a free agent before being reacquired this summer. The general managers goals arent lost on the players in the room, and Tyler Myers has expressed confidence in the direction of the team in general. "You have to look at what we got, too," Myers said. "I think its good for both sides. Im happy for Ott and Miller." Murray said the timing of the deal was not ideal for his roster, but the 22-year-old Marcus Foligno and other young teammates almost immediately recognized the bittersweet chance to drive the team into the future. "I looked around with (Brian) Flynn and (Zemgus) Girgensons, and we just said we gotta step up," Foligno said. "This is a game where we have to play well and this is something where we lost them and now hopefully were here for the long run and were players that they count on." Cheap Jordan 5 Retro . -- Chris Tillman paid no attention to the Baltimore bullpen as it started to stir in the ninth inning. Air Jordan 5 NZ .

The prize hes missing is the biggest, and the chance to win it is on the near horizon. The 21-year-old from Deux-Montagnes, Que., is the reigning world champion and has won the World Cup overall title in moguls the last two years. Kingsbury is the heavy favourite to win Olympic gold in Sochi, Russia, next month. His chief rival for gold is Canadian teammate Alex Bilodeau, who happens to be the defending Olympic champion. Kingsbury added to his expanding coffers of hardware Saturday by winning a World Cup in Calgary. Kingsbury and Bilodeau were 1-2 in the final ahead of Patrick Deneen of the U.S. in third at Canada Olympic Park. Montreals Justine Dufour-Lapointe edged American Hannah Kearney for gold. Justines sister, Chloe, was third ahead of Andi Naude of Penticton, B.C., who finished fourth. Kingsbury extended his winning streak at the Calgary stop on the World Cup to four straight years. "Calgary is the best World Cup for me all over the world so far," Kingsbury declared. "I feel like home everywhere in Canada. For sure I cant wait to ski in Quebec, but this year the course was awesome. "I felt very confident today. Thats the biggest point. I felt very good and in very good shape. Its looking good for Sochi." The Canadian freestyle team earned seven out of a possible 12 medals in Calgary and placed another four athletes in the top five. The host country swept the mens halfpipe medals Friday with Justin Dorey of Vernon, B.C., Calgarys Noah Bowman and Matt Margetts of Penticton finishing first to third respectively. Freestyle halfpipe will make its Olympic debut in Sochi. The freestyle and short-track speedskating teams are expected to be the drivers of Canadas medal haul in Sochi, where the countrys goal is to win the overall medal count. Bilodeau, Kingsbury and Justine Dufour-Lapointe have already qualified for Canadas Olympic team. Kingsbury leads the World Cup standings again with his second victory this season. In moguls, a skiers results are determined by their time down the course and judges scores on their style and two jumps. Kingsbury scored 86.50 points followed by Bilodeau with 84.76. The Canadians had higher degrrees of difficulty on their air elements than Deneen, who posted the fastest run time and scored 78. Cheapest Air Jordan 5. 16. Bilodeau did not speak to reporters in Calgary after his performance, nor did the 26-year-old participate in a conference call scheduled for later in the day. Bilodeau looked unhappy after the race. His coach Michel Hamelin confirmed that Bilodeau felt he deserved better scores from the judges, and also that Bilodeau was undergoing post-race treatment at the time of the conference call. "Right now, hes in treatment for a massage for his legs," Hamelin said. "Today at the course, he was down about the result. "He felt that when he skis right now, even if he does his best, he feels that he skis with a rock in his pocket. "Right now, the gap (between Bilodeau and Kingsbury) is a bit too much from the judges. If were second with a little bit tighter score well be fine with it. He was kind of upset about why am I not closer to him? "Were really above everyone, but those two guys should always be really tight on the score." Dufour-Lapointe won the womens title in Calgary for the second straight year. With a score of 78.53, Dufour-Lapointe edged Kearney, who won Olympic gold in 2010 ahead of silver medallist Jennifer Heil of Canada. "Today, the good thing is I went fast and did clean jumps and thats how I win," Dufour-Lapointe said. "To win a gold medal at home, its incredible." Kearney scored 77.63 points followed by Chloe Dufour-Lapointe with 74.83. A third Dufour-Lapointe sister, Maxime, qualified for the six-skier final and finished fifth. "Im so happy she made this super final for us," Justine said. "I just wish we could be the three of us at the Olympic Games." Dufour-Lapointe and Kearney are tied atop the womens World Cup standings after two events. The moguls team has World Cup events in Deer Valley, Utah, Lake Placid, N.Y., and Val St. Come, Que., this month before heading to Russia. Every Canadian medallist in Calgary receives a $5,000 bonus from WinSport, which operates Canada Olympic Park.
