SOCHI, Russia -- Ukrainian Olympic chief Sergei Bubka said he has "great sympathy" with the desire of his athletes to wear black armbands to remember those killed in the political unrest in Kyiv. Adidas Nmd Mens Clearance . But he says it was agreed "after consultation with the IOC" that wearing armbands would not be in line with the Olympic Charter. "Both parties agreed that another way of allowing Ukraine athletes to mark their respects should be found," he said, adding that athletes on the team had observed a minute of silence in the Olympic Village and issued statements or gave interviews about the crisis. Bubka, a pole vault great, issued a statement Thursday following "erroneous reports" that he had prevented athletes from wearing armbands. The International Olympic Committee denied that it had received a request from the Ukrainians to wear armbands during the games. Ukrainian skier Bogdana Matsotska withdrew from the Sochi Olympics in response to the deaths of anti-government protesters in Ukraine. Bubka has urged Ukrainian athletes to remain in Sochi as a sign of unity. But he has also said he respects the rights of athletes to make their own decision. Adidas Nmd Mens Ireland . CEO Steve Koonin on Tuesday told the Hawks flagship radio station that he made the decision to discipline Ferry but allowed him to keep his job managing the team. He did not say what the punishment was, but noted that he relied on a law firms three-month investigation of Ferry and him describing Deng as someone who has a little African in him. Adidas Basketball Shoes Wholesale . -- Jack Del Rio only wanted to talk about the Cowboys, not the Trojans.PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil - Algerias players are being left to decide whether or not they observe the Ramadan fast during Mondays World Cup game against Germany, with coach Vahid Halilhodzic saying its not a divisive issue. Observant Muslims avoid food and liquids from dawn to dusk during Ramadan but can, and often do, skip it if travelling or doing hard physical labour. Some devout Muslim athletes choose to fast during training or competition, but it can create selection difficulties for the coaches in team sports. Halilhodzic, who has testy relations with sections of the Algerian media and its football association, threatened to leave a news conference Sunday if questions persisted on the topic. He said critics were using the issue to "try and raise hatred of me and my family. This is really disgusting." The national football association released a statement denying a report in Algerias leading football newspaper suggesting that Halilhodzic, a Muslim, had ordered players not to fast. Its a potentially sensitive allegation in the mostly Muslim country. The federation said Halilhodzic had been "very respectful" of the religion in his three years at the helm of the national team. The veteran coach, a French-Bosnian, said fasting was a "private issue and players will do exactly as they wish." "When you ask this question you lack respect and ethics. I would like this to stop. Stop this controversy. Talk about football," he said, in response to repeated questions at the official pre-match news conference. "And stop asking me about RRamadan, otherwise I will get up and leave. Best Adidas Basketball Shoes 2019. ." The match Monday kicks less than an hour before sunset in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre. The Algeria lineup has been impressive in its three group games, and had its best attacking display so far in a 4-2 win over South Korea. Halilhodzic started that match with five new players following its opening 2-1 defeat to Belgium. They followed that up with a 1-0 win over Russia to reach the knockout rounds for the first time. "We will do everything we can to try and win this match, but (the Germans) are of a higher quality, more experienced and basically better than us," Halilhodzic said. "We shall prepare for this game as the most important in our career. We will give it our all." Algeria shocked West Germany 2-1 in the group stages of the 1982 World Cup, in what was a colossal upset at the time. But the team didnt make it through to the qualifying rounds after the Germans and Austria played out a mutually advantageous result in their last group match in one of the most infamous World Cup episodes. The build up to Mondays match has focused on whether this is now the opportunity for Algeria to avenge what has become known as the "Disgrace of Gijon." But Halilhodzic and Germany coach Joachim Loew downplayed that Sunday, noting that the vast majority of players were not born when it occurred. "This is history. There are many things that occur in football. I would like this wonderful championship to finish in a different way," Halilhodzic said. ' ' '

While there have always been franchises in baseball rebuilding for the future, the act of rebuilding itself -- explicitly absorbing short-term losses to further long-term goals -- remains controversial. Nike Air Max Classic Bw Nederland . But what is undeniable is that many of the most successful teams in baseball preceded their runs with a stretch of rebuilding or, less charitably, tanking.The 2015-2016 Chicago Cubs became one of the best teams in baseball, their fallow years allowing them to focus on assembling the farm system and putting off the big-ticket contracts until contention was more realistic. While the 2016 Houston Astros have been disappointing, the 2015 team that came close to knocking off the eventual World Series champions had lost 111 games just two years prior. And where would the Kansas City Royals be without a series of deals that landed them Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar and Wade Davis, among others, years after Zack Greinke departed?Right now, there are arguably five teams in baseball voluntarily going through the full tear-down-and-rebuild process: the Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, Milwaukee Brewers, Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres. While the goal is the same for all five teams, the overarching strategy and approach to their respective rebuilds is quite different. To help answer who will get to the promised land quicker than the rest, Ive enlisted the aid of the ZiPS projection system. Nike Air Max Kopen . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline.

Vaives lawyer Trevor Whiffen claims the former 50-goal man wasnt provided with a copy of the claim beforehand and that he would not have agreed to the allegations made against the NHL had he been asked to review its contents.DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins kicker Dan Carpenter lost his training-camp competition for a job Wednesday to rookie Caleb Sturgis. Carpenter, Miamis kicker the past five seasons, had his contract terminated. The move saves the Dolphins considerable money, because he would have received nearly $2.7 million this year in the final season of a four-year deal. The Dolphins signalled Carpenters job was jeopardy when they drafted Sturgis in the fifth round in April. Sturgis set a school record for field goals at Florida, where he went 70 for 88, including eight successful kicks from 50 yards and beyond. The rookie made a 58-yard field goal in an exhibition game Friday and Jacksonville and hit all six of hiss kickoffs into the end zone. Nike Air Max Just Do It Kopen. Carpenter reached the Pro Bowl in 2009 and holds the team record with a 60-yard field goal in 2010. He went 22 for 27 last year, but hes only 10 for 20 in his career from 50 yards and beyond. General manager Jeff Ireland released a statement thanking Carpenter, who was active in community fundraising and childrens events. "For the past five seasons Dan has been a tireless worker on the field, while devoting countless hours of his time off the field to the betterment of the South Florida community," Ireland said. "He has been a productive player and an outstanding citizen, and we wish him and his wife, Kaela, all the best." ' ' '

Defenceman Yannick Weber scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Canucks breathed a sigh of relief with a 2-1 win on Saturday night. MILWAUKEE -- From winning a division title and a playoff series to making two All-Star teams, Jonathan Lucroy has enjoyed plenty of positive moments since debuting with the Milwaukee Brewers in 2010.With Lucroy prominently mentioned in trade speculation, the 32,405 fans at Miller Park potentially provided one last memory when they gave him standing ovations before and after he flied out as a pinch hitter Sunday in a 4-2 win over Pittsburgh.It was pretty cool, a lot of fun, said Lucroy, who turned down a trade to Cleveland over the weekend. I wish I would have gotten a knock there, but we won the game, so thats all that matters.The fans have been great to me here. I couldnt ask for a better environment to grow up in if something does happen. If nothing does happen, its going to be awkward the rest of the year. Well see what happens. Its out of your control at this point, he said.Lucroy nixed that swap to the AL Central-leading Indians. But other teams want the 30-year-old catcher before Mondays deal deadline and he has a limited no-trade clause.Pirates pitching coach Ray Searage visited the mound as Lucroy walked to the plate in the eighth inning. With the crowd chanting his name, Lucroy tipped his helmet to acknowledge the cheers.With two on and two outs, Lucroy flied out. He left the field to another standing ovation.I think it all worked out the way I wanted it to, Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. I dont know what is going to happen, but I thought he deserved that.I thought the fans deserved that. It worked out right. It was a really good spot for it to happen. Im glad the fans acknowledged him. I know he appreciated it, he said.Keon Broxton and Chris Carter hit solo home runs as Milwaukee completed a three-game sweep.Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison exited with discomfort in his right leg after a hard collision with Broxton on a sacrifice bunt in the sixth.Matt Garza (2-4) gave up one earned run in five innnings, ending his four-game losing streak. Vincent Edwards Rockets Jersey. Jeremy Jeffress earned his fourth save in as many days and his 27th of the season in 28 chances.My stuff is coming back, Garza said.

Im pretty pumped.Francisco Liriano (6-11) allowed four runs in five innings.The Pirates have lost nine consecutive games at Miller Park and are 17-64 in Milwaukee since 2007.We come in here, what did we get, six runs? manager Clint Hurdle said. It has been one of the challenges weve had here different times, too many strikeouts. Too many soft outs throughout the series. They pitched better, we still had pitches to hit.Gregory Polancos second home run in as many days pulled Pittsburgh to within 2-1 in the third.STILL STREAKINGBrewers 2B Scooter Gennett extended his career-high hitting streak to 10 games with a single in the first. He is batting .368 (14 for 38) during the string.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: RHP Ryan Vogelsong, who has been out since May 24 with facial fractures, will come off the disabled list to start Thursday in Atlanta.

And thats all before I get to the starting line.The 45-year-old Astin is known for film roles such as Samwise Gamgee in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and the title character in Rudy.Playing the sturdy Samwise, Frodo Baggins right-hand hobbit, proved challenging for an actor who was dedicated to fitness.Astin said the character is derided as a stupid fat hobbit by the shadowy Gollum. Every time I would start to exercise the director would pull out the book and point to that sentence, he said.---Foodies know Elizabeth Falkner from TV shows including Top Chef Masters, The Next Iron Chef, Redemption and Chopped All Stars.I love food competition.

But then to be doing this together for the first time is really special, that well remember the rest of our lives.The siblings were born in Brooklyn but have scattered to different states. Only one sister, Jessica Rowe, is a marathon novice.Well be checking in with her to make sure that shes OK and shes alive and she hasnt totally given up on this, Maria Siemann said.---Gordon Felt, 53, is running with other family members from United Airlines Flight 93, which crashed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, on Sept. 11, 2001, as the passengers tried to wrest control of the plane from four hijackers.Felts brother, computer engineer Edward Felt, called 911 from the doomed plane just minutes before it crashed.Gordon Felt said he and the other family members are running to raise funds for the Flight 93 National Memorial.

ROME -- As far as city leaders are concerned, Romes bid for the 2024 Olympics is finished.The city council voted in favor of scrapping the bid on Thursday, a week after Mayor Virginia Raggi rejected the candidacy, citing concerns over costs.It was irresponsible to say yes to the candidacy, Raggi wrote on Facebook. We wanted to say no to more debts for Rome and for Italy.The anti-bid motion passed easily, as expected, by 30-12 since Raggis anti-establishment 5-Star Movement holds a majority on the city council.The 5-Star Movement holds 29 of the 48 council places, and all 29 voted in support of the mayors rejection. There was also one supporting vote from an opposition party. Six council members were absent.The rejection leaves only Los Angeles, Paris, and Budapest, in the running for the 2024 Games. The International Olympic Committee will decide on the host city in September 2017.However, Rome bid leaders and the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) are hanging on to hope that the bid can somehow be revived, perhaps if Raggi is ousted from office.IOC President Thomas Bach will be in Rome next Tuesday for a sports and faith conference at the Vatican.Well decide what to do after meeting Bach on Tuesday, CONI president Giovanni Malago said.The IOC told Italian media that it was following the events in Rome and was in contact with the bid committee and CONI to make sense of these political circumstances.Its the second time in four years that a Rome Olympic bid has been rejected. In 2012, then-premier Mario Monti scrapped the citys bid for the 2020 Olympics because of financial concerns.Under previous mayor Ignazio Marino, Romes 2024 bid was approved by the city assembly last year with 38 votes in favor and only six against. Italian Premier Matteo Renzi was a strong supporter of the bid. Custom Nike Colorado Rockies Jerseys. Today came the definitive `No on the Olympics, Renzi said. Its legitimate but weve certainly made a bad impression internationally.But whats shocking isnt the decision but rather its saying that you cant have the Olympics because its bad business. Thousands of jobs will be lost for giving up.Raggi, a lawyer who was elected in June as Romes first female mayor, cited worries over costs and budget overruns as reasons for rejecting the bid in a city that can barely collect its trash, and keep up other basic public services.At the same session, another motion was passed by the city council asking the government to provide 4 billion euros ($4.5 billion) for refurbishing sports venues in the city and for general urban improvements.Were continuing to work for the city, Raggi wrote.The latest rejection is another signal that the IOC still has a lot of work to do to convince cities that hosting the games is a boon and not a burden. Earlier Thursday, a city government panel in Tokyo warned that the cost of the 2020 Olympics could exceed $30 billion, more than four times the initial estimates.Voters in Hamburg rejected the German citys 2024 bid in a referendum, and Boston dropped out last year amid a lack of public and political support and was replaced as the U.S. candidate by Los Angeles.Four cities withdrew during the bidding for the 2022 Winter Games, leaving only two candidates in the field. Beijing, hardly known as a winter sports destination, defeated Almaty, Kazakhstan.---Andrew Dampf on Twitter: www.twitter.com/asdampf ' ' '

The seam-up variationAsela Gunaratne is nominally a medium-pacer, but showed hes an unusual member of the species on his ODI debut. Stitched Giants Jerseys . He ran in like a medium-pacer, went through his delivery stride like a medium-pacer, but gripped the ball and released it like an offspinner. Having taken two wickets with his offcutter, he was now bowling to Zimbabwes No. 11, Tinashe Panyangara, who had slogged him with the turn for a boundary through midwicket in his previous over. Now came the change-up. Ordinarily, medium-pacers bowl their stock ball with the seam upright, and use the cutters as a variation. Gunaratne flipped it around. Out came a seam-up ball, swinging away just a hint. Like R Ashwins arm ball, but quicker. Panyangara slogged across the line again, but this time only managed a top-edge that ballooned to the fielder at cover.The no-ballZimbabwe were only defending 154, and Panyangara, coming back to the side after a spell out injured, bowled a beauty first up with the new ball. It pitched just back of a length, and curved away from close to off stump, leaving Dhananjaya de Silva feeling uncertainly for the ball and nicking to the keeper. It was the perfect start. Almost. Zimbabwes players aborted their celebrations almost as soon as they began them, seeing the umpires arm shoot out to his side, signaling no-ball. Panyangara had overstepped. De Silva went on to make an unbeaten 78.The grabZimbabwes new-ball bowlers had begun erratically, dropping the ball far too short, far too often, and Kusal Perera and de Silva had pulled Donald Tiripano and Panyangara for three fours in the space of five balls spread across the eighth and ninth overs of Sri Lankas innings. Chamu Chibhabha came on to bowl the 11th over, and dropped short with just his second ball. Pereras eyes lit up, and he swiveled through another pull. This time, though, he sliced underneath it a little, and though he had middled it, he had hit it in the air. It still left the man at deep square leg a fair amount of yardage to cover, but Zimbabwe had their best fielder there, Sikandar Raza. He sprinted quickly to his left, and completed the catch with an athletic tumble.Drop, deflect, overthrowIn the 13th over of Zimbabwes innings, Chamu Chibhabha spotted de Silva stepping out of his crease and shifted his line wide of off stump.

On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks.CHICAGO -- If Thursday was Jake Peavys last start with the White Sox, he wanted a reminder of his days in Chicago. Peavy chose to have the White Sox wear the teams 1983 throwback jerseys, then outpitched Justin Verlander in a 7-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers. Peavy (8-4) has been the subject of trade speculation as the July 31 deadline approaches. He hadnt pitched in the old-style uniforms -- usually reserved for Sundays -- and knew that with multiple scouts watching him, it might be his last chance. The fans also recognized Thursday might have been the end for Peavy in Chicago, and they gave him standing ovations following the seventh inning and when he was relieved in the eighth after giving up Brayan Penas home run. "It was very humbling. It was emotional for me," Peavy said. "If it was the last time I pitch here at U.S. Cellular Field, with this uniform on, it was a nice way to go out. It meant the absolute world to me. I hope everyone knows that." The Tigers again played minus Miguel Cabrera and had their four-game winning streak end. The AL MVP missed his third straight game because of an injured left hip flexor. Cabreras status for Friday nights home game against Philadelphia was uncertain. "Im not going to do anything stupid," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "Just have to wait and see how he comes in tomorrow." Torii Hunter homered for the third time in the series. But the Tigers outfielder exited in the eighth and is day to day with a sore left Achilles. Peavy was acquired from San Diego on July 31, 2009, and re-signed for two years with the White Sox last October. He didnt get no-trade protection because he figured Chicago, which won 85 games in 2012, would be in contention this season. That, however, isnt the case. Peavy helped Chicago avoid falling 21 games below .500. Peavy said again that hes open to either staying in Chicago or leaving for a contending team. "Ill be happy to stay here and be the best teammate I can be, grind it out the rest of the season and make sure we keep playing hard and show up to win every day," Peavy said. "If I get traded, Ill give the boys a big hug and make sure a few tears will be shed, leaving the friendships here. And Ill go play as hard as I can to help the next ballclub Im on, if that happens. Just going to take it in and well see how the next few days play out," he said. White Sox manager Robin Ventura doesnt have a say in Peavys future. If he did, hed push for the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner to stay in Chicago. "Its one of those I enjoy him being on our team. I know what he means," Ventura said. San Francisco Giants Gear. "I dont make that decision so, again, Im the guy thats appreciating just him being on our team right now. I hope hes here through next year, too." Peavy allowed four hits, three of them homers, and four hits while striking out seven in the matchup of former Cy Young winners. In two starts since returning from the disabled list with a broken left rib, Peavy is 2-0 and has given up six earned runs in 13 innings. Verlander (10-8) gave up seven runs and 11 hits in six innings. Tyler Flowers, catching for the first time since July 21, homered off the Tigers star. "Today, as funny as it sounds, was a step in the right direction," Verlander said. "I thought my stuff was the best its been all year. It was just a little erratic." Addison Reed allowed the tying run to get to the plate in the ninth but struck out Pena to pick up his 26th save in 30 tries, keeping the White Sox from getting swept in a four-game series at home by Detroit for the first time since June 20-22, 1980. Verlander, who fell to 0-2 against the White Sox this season, struggled early. Chicago scored twice in the first for its first lead in the series. Paul Konerko and Jeff Keppinger hit RBI singles with two outs. Peavy allowed his first hit in the fourth when Austin Jackson singled. Hunter followed with his 10th homer. The White Sox scored four times in the bottom half. Flowers hit an RBI double off left fielder Andy Dirks glove, Alexei Ramirez had a two-run single and Alex Rios singled home a run. Flowers homered in the sixth. Victor Martinez connected for the Tigers in the seventh. NOTES: White Sox RHP Jesse Crain, out since July 3 with a strained right shoulder, played catch but pitching coach Don Cooper termed it a "slight" setback. Crain did not throw a bullpen session as hoped. ... Leyland said closer Joaquin Benoit, who worked in three of Detroits previous four games, was unavailable. ... White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham was out of the lineup for the fifth straight game with a strained left wrist but could play Friday. .... Tigers 2B Omar Infante, on a rehab assignment with Single-A West Michigan after spraining his left ankle July 3, could return to the Tigers on Friday if he feels ready to return. ...

PITTSBURGH -- It looked like the table was set for the Pittsburgh Pirates entering their weekend series against Miami at PNC Park. Custom New York Mets Jerseys .The Marlins, though, had other ideas.Miami, which had lost three straight games and three series in a row, clinched this set with a 3-1 victory Saturday following a 6-5 win Friday.The Marlins moved a half-game ahead of the Pirates in the National League wild-card chase and are 1 1/2 games behind St. Louis, which holds the second wild-card spot.Miami goes for a sweep Sunday against a Pirates team that entered the weekend having won four straight games, four series in a row and was looking to create some space between themselves and the Marlins in the wild card standings.Every day is a game that you basically feel like youve got to go out and win, Miami manager Don Mattingly said. At this point in the year, every day you do that, it kind of stays on your side until the next day, and the next pitcher can hopefully start with zeroes.Things change quickly. We come out of Cincinnati (after losing three in a row and three of four) and everybodys not doing great. Were asked questions about are you fading? Two days later, you feel like youve got a good club and youve got a chance to do something. Thats this time of year.Although David Phelps six shutout innings helped immensely Saturday, Miamis offense has been its biggest asset this weekend.On Friday, the Marlins banged out 16 hits, including three home runs, in a 6-5 victory that could have been lopsided if they had not left 14 men on base. Saturday, they made the most of their six hits in taking an early 3-0 lead.Entering Saturday, Miami ranked second in the National League and third in the majors with a .271 batting average.Right-hander Jose Urena (1-4, 6.80 ERA) is scheduled to start Sunday for Miami. He has been a study in trying to find consistency.Urena has spent time with the Marlins and Triple-A New Orleans -- in the bullpen and as a starter -- since making his major league debut last season.He most recently was called up to start Tuesday at Cincinnati, his seventh recall. In that game, a 6-3 loss, he had a rough patch in the first inning. With two outs, he gave up a bases-loaded walk and a grand slam to the Reds Tucker Barnhart.Then he got back in his groove and lasted through the sixth.I tried to put the ball down in the zone. I couldnt find it, Urena told reporters of his lapse against the Reds. After that, I was doing better.Urena opposes Pittsburgh right-hander Ryan Vogelsong (2-2, 3.20 ERA).Vogelsong missed more than two months this season after facial injuries from being hit by a pitch May 24 led to surgery and a long stint on the disabled list. Since he was reinstated Aug. 4, he is 1-1 with a 2.55 ERA in three starts.He wont have to deal with the distraction he faced his last time out, an 8-5 win Monday against his former team, San Francisco. He gave up four runs on nine hits, with three walks and one strikeout, in 5 2/3 innings, but he didnt hide the fact that the Giants fans warm welcome, including an ovation early in the game, affected him.That first inning, man, I wasnt ready for it, the ovation, Vogelsong told USA Today. It threw me off a little bit. Awesome, though, awesome. Those are the kind of moments you wish every guy would get to experience.Its hard to stay locked in and be appreciative at the same time. Theres moments in these games you want to hold on to and remember for the rest of your life, and (this) was one of those for me. New York Mets Gear . Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points.

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Pavel Buchnevich is ready to play for the New York Rangers.The 21-year-old Russian left wing believes it and so do the Rangers. Its why he is attending the teams prospects camp this week at their Westchester practice rink.A year ago, it was a different story. Buchnevich wasnt so sure. His body needed to mature for the grind of the NHL and so did his game.After splitting the past season in the KHL at Severstal Cherepovets and SKA St. Petersburg, Buchnevich is a confident young man. He had 16 goals and 21 assists in 58 games, establishing KHL career-highs in games played, goals, assists, points, game-winning goals (three), power play goals (four), and average ice time (16:10).Among KHL players 24-years-old or younger, Buchnevich ranked third in assists, ranked fourth in points, and tied for seventh in goals. The numbers were impressive enough to earn the 2013 third-round draft pick a three-year entry level contract.He is going to get every chance to show he does not belong, Gordie Clark, the teams director of player personnel, said this week before Buchnevich took the ice for an afternoon session.Buchnevich looked smooth during the workout Tuesday. He skated easily, handled the skills drills well and wasnt shy putting the puck on the net.He has a lot to learn. He does not speak English. He relies on hand signals from his teammates and occasionally gets help from defenseman Sergei Zborivsky, a fellow Russian and third-round draft pick in 2015.The hockey is hockey, though.If I werent sure, I wouldnt come here, Buchnevich said through interpreter Nickolai Bobrov, the Rangerss director of European scouting. Wholesale Mets Jerseys. Clark had wanted Buchnevich to attend the prospects camp last year but he stayed home.I felt the age was a bit different, even at 20 its still considered to be young, Buchnevich said. I felt I needed the time to physically get prepared in Cherepovets and SKA St. Petes and get more experience and get older.Getting used to the more physical NHL game and the smaller rinks will be an adjustments.Obviously a physical game, there is less space and less time to make decisions, less space and less time to make plays, said Buchnevich, who played for former Devils Ilya Kovalchuk in SKA St. Petersburg. The two exchanged text messages after he signed with the Rangers.Playing in smaller rinks should increase his scoring chances.Buchnevich seemed to laugh when asked whether he was a scorer or a two-way player.I think I am not quite a goal scorer, he said. I may be, but Im a thinking player, a cerebral player, a playmaker.The next five months will give an indication. Buchnevich plans to stay in the United States for most of the summer and return from for 10 days before getting ready for training camp.Buchnevich represented Russia at the IIHF World Junior Championship in 2014 and 2015, scoring three goals and 10 assists in 14 contests.Game notes The Rangers extended qualifying offers this week to forwards Kevin Hayes, Marek Hrivik, Nicklas Jensen, Chris Kreider, J.T. Miller and defensemen Mat Bodie, Dylan McIlrath and Tommy Hughes. ' ' '

Ryan Giggs believes Juan Mata has earned Jose Mourinhos trust after the attacker scored his third Premier League goal of the season against Arsenal on Saturday. Fake Rockies Jerseys . The Spaniard was sold to Manchester United by Mourinho, who was then in charge at Chelsea, and his place at Old Trafford was questioned following Mourinhos appointment last summer.But Giggs, who coached Mata under David Moyes and Louis van Gaal, believes the playmaker has proven his worth to the manager. Mata, who has also scored against Leicester and Bournemouth this season, put United on course for three points against Arsenal, only for Olivier Giroud to equalise late on, consigning the hosts to their third consecutive league draw at home.It was another impressive display from the Spain international and when asked by Sky Sports if he has earned Mourinhos faith, Giggs said: I think he has, and rightly so.He is a very good player and a brilliant professional. The key to Juan being effective is getting the legs around him.He has a footballing brain and when you have Antonio Valencia over-lapping, Marcus Rashford in the channels, the energy of Ander Herrera and the power of Paul Pogba, then it makes it easier for him because he doesnt have to do the running, which he can do.His number one position is No 10, but hes done it [played wide] for so long. He played off the right for Chelsea. Juan Mata said it was extremely frustrating to concede late against Arsenal Speaking to Sky Sports after the game, Mata admitted his team-mates were left frustrated by Girouds late equaliser, but he was eager to take the positives.We were very close to winning the game but this is the Premier League and this is football, Mata said. We know every team will fight until the end and they did. They had one chance and Giroud did a great header and we take a point.When you are winning by just one goal you are not totally in control. We had a few chances to score the second goal and that would have killed the game.We have to take the positives. We showed passion, we showed that we are a team and committed, and that we were close to beating a great team like Arsenal.
