Certainly Matthew Tkachuk would be worth the offer sheet play, but there is no way Calgary lets him go. You are right about the Maple Leafs and there cap problem, but I'm not yet convinced that Kapenen is the next Teemu Selanne. I am hoping that in my lifetime -- and who knows about that, given my terrible diet -- that I will actually see Jordan Kyrou play a regular shift for 10 or 20 games in a row.
You'd have to go with Stallions just to needle the NFL. The logo has been done. Who knows, there still might be T-shirts out there.
Possibly, but let's see if they actually have some overlap. Already Carlos Martinez is set to open on the injured list. Another injury or two could change the equation.
The Cardinals want to see guys locked in with their regular season swings during the last few exhibition games. Bader had an encouraging day and the team seems pleased with Fowler's bounce-back spring, so I wouldn't be panicking just yet.
Sadly, neither Tkachuk figure to play here in their careers. Both are franchise-type guys. Maybe Brady will pop free some day if the Senators never stabilize, but I wouldn't count on it.
Sportswriter Rob Rains tracked the enigmatic Greene to Greer, S.C., but was unable to score an interview. Khalil is keeping a low profile, which is no surprise given the anxiety issues he faced as a player. I believe Ryan last played for the Toledo Mud Hens in 2017. He bounced down to the independent league level in 2014 and '15 but actually got a cup of coffee with Angels in 2016. I believe he is on Twitter, but if that is him at BrendanRyanMLB he doesn't reveal much about what he is up to these days.
Come on, it has to be Wrigley Field. Worst press box of all time, but the best stadium atmosphere/neighborhood ever.
No, the offense carried Tarasenko for a while. Again, there have been plenty of chances the last few games but plenty of misses around the net and some tough luck. I would be more concerned if the Blues were at full strength and not generating many good looks.
I agree. When your team scores zero goals, it's time to try something new. And when I say try, I don't mean a few shifts here or there.
If the Blues lose at Pittsburgh, which is quite possible, then things will get tight. Then they will have to step on Buffalo to restore order, then try to regain some momentum as Perron and Tarasenko return before the playoffs.
Nah, the Cardinals would score a bunch of runs. I don't believe the Blues have spent much time adjusting their launch angles, so they would be at a huge disadvantage.
Jonathan Quick would have none of this talk. He famously challenged shooters, flying out of the net time after time to shut them down on Cup-winning teams. The Kings played lockdown defense, literally covering his backside. I, too, appreciate calm goaltenders who hold their position. And I agree that Allen can become overly aggressive at times. But you are oversimplifying it. In this case, he allowed the one goal on 20 shots. Are you ripping him for not sending the game into overtime 0-0? I'd be more concerned about the offense than Allen right now. Jake has stopped 77 of 81 shots in his last three games. That should be good enough to win.
1. I keep it simple at Taco Bell: a half-dozen of the basic crunchy tacos with two packets of regular sauce on each.
No, because Carlos Martinez is injured and the Cardinals are bringing back Alex Reyes with care. If he is healthy, he should get some regular season starts and we'll see where that goes.
Schenn was none too pleased, that's for sure. He ended up wearing the crimson mask as they say in wrestling. He was furious when he went down the hall for repairs. But the amount of damage he suffered was really an unlucky circumstance.
Berube's dramatic turnaround of this moribund team should keep him in place past this season. If the team loses out, that's different. But this team was due for a lull after two months of brilliant play and, yes, the injuries have played a part.
What's being stressed to the Cardinals at the plate is nothing radical. And let's not forget he came to a team that saw Ozuna take a big step back last season, Fowler crash and burn, Carpenter struggle for a six-week stretch, Gyorko lose some power and Wong ride the roller coaster again. It's not like the Cardinals terrorized National League pitching last season.
You know, I have not gone there to see a match so I can't give you much advice. Soccer Park can be a bit tricky to get into for a first-time visitor, especially with the construction in that area.
The Chief sticks with forward combinations longer than Mike Yeo did. Yeo got positively frantic during his final days. But like you say, nothing is working well these days. Jordan Kyrou got recalled yet again, so perhaps he will actually to get play this time. Surely there is a place in that mix for more speed and skill, right?
