Post sed to do and James and Chuck
STANFORD, Calif. -- The San Jose Sharks have expanded associate coach Larry Robinsons role with the team to make him director of player development. General manager Doug Wilson announced the change on Friday, calling Robinson "one of the most respected minds in hockey." Robinson has been associate coach under Todd McLellan the past two seasons. He now will work more on developing Sharks players and prospects and spend less time behind the bench. Robinson is a Hall of Fame defenceman who won six Stanley Cups as a player in Montreal, made 10 All-Star teams and won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the playoff MVP in 1978. He also won one Stanley Cup as head coach in New Jersey and two more as an assistant. Chad Henne Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. Yannick Ngakoue Jersey . Toronto FC hosts the three-time Italian league champions in a friendly Aug. 7 at BMO Field, a game that Roma CEO Italo Zanzi said falls within a key part of their pre-season. http://www.authenticjaguarslockroom.com ... te-Jersey/. Off-Season Game Plan looks at a Wild team that has a nice mix of proven veterans along with young, inexpensive talent on the rise. When the Wild signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, making a big splash in the summer of 2012, it set the franchise on a path to being more competitive, but a big reason that they have been so competitive is the contributions of young players who still have more to give.

Feeding off of last springs wildly successful We the North campaign, which was originally scheduled to be unleashed this season, the Raptors primary symbol will feature a red circular border encasing the team name in white lettering and a silver basketball with claw prints inside. Last year during the playoffs, We the North became a rallying cry for this team, and all of our fans, Raptors president and general manger Masai Ujiri said in a press release. Our new logo represents that attitude and will be an important part of our identity starting next season. The team is set to debut its new look to begin the third decade of Raptors basketball next season - a year in which Toronto will host the NBAs All-Star Game - but not everyone is on board with the rebrand. Originally launched by the club in a short video Friday afternoon, a black and white version of the teams new shield flashed across the screen, sparking a bit of a stir on social media, as it seemed to bear a striking resemblance to the Brooklyn Nets logo. Adopted by the Nets upon their move to Brooklyn, their logo shares the same circular shape, also utilizing a basketball in the centre with white lettering around the border. A simple and clean look, its a trend that has been popularized throughout professional sports in recent years. The consensus in Torontos locker room ahead of Fridays road contest with the Pistons could be described as indifference, verging on disapproval. Dwane Casey had not seen the new logo but indicated hed be content with whatever they gave him to wear on his shirt. Amir Johnson and Landry Fields both appreciated the clean look. But not everyone was impressed. Nope, responded a prominent Raptors player bluntly after being asked if he liked the new logo hell be wearing next season. At least I dont have to pay the bill. However, most of the team acknowledged that the logo itself is less important to them than the actual colour scheme, which they approved of, and the jerseys, which wont be unveiled until this coming summer. Several Raptors staffers, including Ujiri, insisted that once everyone - fans and players alike - see the teams new uniforms theyll come around. In addition to the regular home and away jerseys, theyll also wear a black and gold alternate inspired by Drake, their global ambassador, and the colours of his OVO brand. I think people are going to be floored with what we have in store for next season, the Toronto-born rap artist said ahead of Drake Night on Wednesday. The team said he played a big part in the redesign, in conjunction with Sid Lee, the same creative services agency that is responsible for the We the North campaign. Its gone really well. We have some exciting things in the works. Its going to be a full rebrand. Ultimately, as Ujiri has reiterated even prior to the teams recent success, it doesnt matter what logo they have across their chest as long they are winning. Anything you do, forr me, is all based on winning, Ujiri had said on media day ahead of the 2013-14 campaign, his first with the organization.dddddddddddd You can have the best name, worst name, you can have any colours you want if you have the right basketball players. TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS Fridays win, Torontos fifth straight, followed a familiar formula. The Raptors eased their way into another contest against inferior competition, surrendering 31 first-quarter points to the Pistons, who shot 50 per cent in the frame. After closing the first half on a 22-11 run, thanks in large part to the contributions of their bench, they took control in the third quarter, outscoring Detroit 29-18. I give our bench a lot of credit, they came in and did the job, Casey said after his second unit poured in 59 points in Torontos 110-100 victory. Im really, really excited about the way theyre coming in and establishing a style of play, establishing an identity that you need with your second unit. Six players scored in double figures, including three off the pine. Jonas Valanciunas led the way with 17 points in a tough match-up against Andre Drummond, handing the 5-22 Pistons their 12th straight home loss at the Palace of Auburn Hills. THE DUNK With just over seven minutes to go and the Raptors up 18, James Johnson put the exclamation point on his teams win. Driving baseline, Johnson skied over Drummond, an elite shot blocker, in one of the most electric plays of the season. Best to let him describe it. That was nasty, right? I cocked that joint back and banged on him. That was a big part of the game, said the reserve forward. It was a big play, it boosted us up a little bit. Teams like Detroit, youve got to have plays like that so you dont let them back in the game. It was a big play alright. Less than a minute later, Drummonds frustrations would boil over. With Johnson driving into the lane again, Drummond turned into him with his shoulder. As veteran tough guy Chuck Hayes intervened, a skirmish ensued next to the Pistons bench. Greivis Vasquez held back Johnson, who has been known to have a temper, as Patrick Patterson and Greg Monroe stepped in and exchanged a couple of shoves. I love it, Casey said of the scuffle. No harm. Drummond did what he was supposed to do and James and Chuck and Pat did what theyre supposed to do, which is stand up for their teammates. No harm, Ive seen far worse than that in the old days. Drummond was assessed a flagrant foul on the play and techs were assigned to Hayes, Monroe, Patterson, as well as Drummond. Thats basketball, man, said Johnson, still emotional after the game. Were competitors out there, man. I dont expect anything less from anyone if you really want to win, man. Everybody really wants to win out there, frustration sets in a little bit but other than that, man, no hard feelings. Our team, were built for that, he continued. Weve been brothers since the first day of pre-season. We go hard for each other. I do that for anyone of them, just like you seen Chuck, Pat and [Vasquez] do that for me. Were all a group, were all brothers, we all love each other and thats the big reason for our success.
