6) The 2014 season left everyone wondering about the lack of scoring in the CFL. Robin Yount Brewers Jersey . It was easy to point to the quarterback position--too many injuries, not enough talent or experience otherwise. So did you worry about a Grey Cup that featured Bo Levi Mitchell and Zach Collaros, admittedly the best of the new breed but perhaps not ready to light up BC Place with their right arms? Well, both passed for more than 300 yards, and yet just one touchdown pass was thrown, and that by Collaros on the losing side.7) Will you applaud when an NFL team signs Ray Rice and says it believes in giving a second chance? Well, okay, but the NFL team that signs Ray Rice will do so because it believes it needs a running back.8) If it is inevitable that Connor McDavid will come to the NHL as "the next Wayne Gretzky", would it be good or not so good if he is drafted by the Edmonton Oilers? (Wayne Gretzky himself believes McDavid will handle the hype wherever he plays--Im not so sure Edmonton is the best place to do that. And by the way, the Oilers are in 30th place.)9) The event is the thing at the World Junior Hockey Championship, but shall we admit that the interest level will go up or down depending upon the health and performance level of McDavid?10) Does Team Canadas decision to award roster spots to goalies Zach Fucale and Eric Comrie while promoting plenty of competition at other positions make you scratch your head?11) I said here earlier that Tom Brady would clinch NFL MVP honours if he followed wins over Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck with a win over Aaron Rodgers. So the question is: Does the Green Bay quarterback enter the MVP discussion, if he wasnt already in it, and is he now the favourite?12) More MVP talk--is it inevitable that the NHLs Hart Trophy will be won by Sidney Crosby or Steven Stamkos?13) You do want to pause for a minute before declaring that a Toronto Blue Jays trade made by Alex Anthopoulos is a good one, dont you? Things have gone wrong with other moves by AA that appeared to be "cant miss" transactions. But pause all you want, how do you question the decision to trade Brett Lawrie and three prospects for Josh Donaldson?14) Okay, shall I attempt to answer the above? You question the TOR-OAK deal only if you think the As can straighten out Lawrie and he can rise a lot closer to Donaldsons level, and if you think Billy Beane is right when he says shortstop Franklin Barreto is one of baseballs best prospects. Where the Jays were concerned, Barreto would only have been one of their best prospects.15) Is there a winnable game on the horizon for the Philadelphia 76ers? On this seasons schedule, I mean.16) Never mind how it turns out, when the Boston Red Sox made a big splash in the free-agent pool by signing Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez, werent baseball fans everywhere the beneficiaries? The Red Sox are supposed to be an attraction, and they really werent last season. As for the other team that isnt allowed to be boring, its your move, New York Yankees.17) How much will 2014 home run king Nelson Cruz help the Seattle Mariners? Well, he should certainly help Robinson Cano by hitting behind him in the batting order, but the Mariners, who came agonizingly close to a playoff spot last season, have to do more than add one bat every winter. Canos average was .314 last season. No other Mariner who appeared in 100 or more games was within 45 percentage points of the star second baseman.18) When San Jose Sharks owner Hasso Plattner said "After 10 years on the sunny side, we now find ourselves struggling to make the playoffs", do the rest of us understand that the playoffs are the sunny side, or do we agree that the playoffs are weather-neutral until they end, at which time the sun may not be shining? Like in San Jose.19) Should the NFL have disciplined five members of the St. Louis Rams for their "hands up, dont shoot" gesture? This is a tough one, because the NFL is hearing it from police in St. Louis and elsewhere for not acting, and would certainly have been criticized if it had issued fines. Trouble is, the NFL cant pick and choose based on the issue, dealing with the trivial and ducking the touchy. Except thats what it does, too often lately.20) Is there any reason to mention the New Jersey Devils signing of Scott Gomez? Well, no, not really, except to introduce this weeks musical offering, from the band called Gomez, and for that, we go back to 2006, when Scott Gomez was first with the Devils. Thats "How We Operate". Milwaukee Brewers Jersey . According to TSN Edmonton reporter Ryan Rishaug, agent Rick Valette met with Oilers senior VP of hockey operations Scott Howson and general manager Craig MacTavish on Monday to kick off the talks. Matt Garza Brewers Jersey . If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles. MINNEAPOLIS -- The clock was ticking for the Minnesota Wild and free agent right wing Nino Niederreiter with the opening of training camp a week away. Deadlines often spur action, and thats exactly what happened Thursday when the Wild signed Niederreiter to a three-year contract. The two sides went back and forth all summer long, with Russia looming as a possible Plan B for the 22-year-old forward who scored the series-clinching goal in overtime of Game 7 to beat the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs. But with the Wild due to report for training camp Sept. 18, general manager Chuck Fletcher was able to lock a deal in with one of the teams many up-and-coming players. "Im excited and happy to stay a part of the WILD family," Niederreiter tweeted after signing what the Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported was an $8 million deal. Neftali Feliz Jersey. Niederreiter was acquired in a trade from the New York Islanders last summer and blossomed into a promising power forward in his first season in Minnesota. He scored a career-high 14 goals and had 22 assists to help the Wild reach the playoffs. He was huge in that Game 7 win over the Avalanche, scoring two goals and assisting on the other in a 3-2 victory. The signing leaves goalie Darcy Kuemper as the Wilds lone remaining free agent. Goaltending is the biggest question mark for a team that added Thomas Vanek to help beef up its offence and is hoping to make a deep run in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Josh Harding is trying to play despite being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and Niklas Backstrom has battled injuries the last few seasons. The 24-year-old Kuemper went 12-8 with a 2.43 goals-against average last season. 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 Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
