Hurricanes Shake-Up? The Carolina Hurricanes have emerged as the team

Hurricanes Shake-Up? The Carolina Hurricanes have emerged as the team to watch from an Insider perspective. Fake Jordan . Decimated by injuries - including those to Eric and Jordan Staal - the Hurricanes remain the only NHL team without a win and even though the club has considerable time to make up ground, some around the league label the Canes as the early favorite to make a significant change this season. Ten days ago, Leafs nation was jolted by a suggestion on Insider Trading that Eric Staal could one day be a Maple Leaf. The information was based on the Leafs interest in the Carolina captain which the Leafs explored months ago, yet there has been no change in that level of interest since. However, Staals commitment to the team, his brother and the Carolina community also hasnt changed, so while some remain confident Staal may one day consider a move, its also possible that day never comes. The primary reason being, with a healthy lineup, Staal and management believe Carolina is much better than its woeful start indicates. Staal is said to be progressing and may return from an upper body injury as early as Tuesday and Nathan Gerbe should also be in Tuesday’s lineup, so help is on the way. Peter Karmanos is known as a budget-conscious owner. If things dont improve dramatically, the likelihood increases Karmanos puts heat on rookie general manager Ron Francis to trim the payroll that current stands at $66.2 million (according to capgeek.com). This seems somewhat obvious given the fact the Hurricanes invested money this season to put together a more competitive team. Francis will preach patience, soundly supported by not having his top two centres, a crippling blow for any NHL club. The longer Carolina waits to make a significant deal, the more money that is paid down in salaries, which may not be budget friendly, but could lure a larger collection of bidders - including cap-strapped contenders - if a key piece like Staal is legitimately in play. What we know at this point is; Staal is not going to be the one to come out and say he wants out. What Rebuild? The Calgary Flames remain in rebuild mode, strongly interested in making deals for age appropriate assets and are keenly motivated to strengthen the organization through the draft and development. Yet, as enticing as potential franchise players Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel might be, the Flames brass insists winning trumps everything. Calgary has won five of their first nine and sits third in the Pacific Division with 11 points, just one point shy of league leaders Montreal, Anaheim and Nashville. The Flames werent supposed to be able to score yet, early in the regular season, this hard-working group ranks 16th in goals for with 2.67 per game, above the likes of Los Angeles, St. Louis and Boston. Brian Burke says hes not surprised by his teams impressive start, directing praise at the Flames goaltending and a work ethic he gives head coach Bob Hartley credit for instilling. The notion Calgary is doing a disservice to its long-term plan by winning is dismissed by the president of hockey operations. Burke is as insulted by the suggestion of tanking today as hes ever been, and says he would support strong penalties against any club found guilty of doing anything other than trying to win. This comment is consistent with the opinion Burke shared on tanking during a TSN 1050 radio interview in March. If the coach made the suggestion, I would fire him on the spot, said Burke. If I made the suggestion, I would suggest to ownership that they fire me on the spot. Nine games is hardly a sample size worthy of planning a postseason party, but the early success does fall in line with Burkes belief teams in transition should still be competitive and entertaining to watch. Lightning Fast Heres another story to add to the Steven Stamkos file. We all know Stamkos commitment to training in the offseason is second to none. This past summer, Stamkos approached his routine under the supervision of fitness guru Gary Roberts with his usual intensity and machine-like execution, despite the fact he was hampered by a surgically inserted screw nearly protruding through his skin - the remaining piece of hardware used to stabilize a badly broken leg. Roberts recalls one particular workout designed around what was supposed to be a light run because of lingering issues with his leg, where after limping into position, Stamkos shredded the track and posted a time of 10.5 seconds over 100 metres. As a point of comparison, top Canadian decathlete Damian Warner recorded a personal best of 10.29 seconds this past July in Glasgow en route to winning the decathlon at the Commonwealth Games. OT Update The architects of the NHLs long change and pre-overtime dry scrape are rallying behind this weeks surge in games decided in overtime. To date, 11 of the 25 games that have gone past regulation have been settled in OT rather than a shootout. Last season, only 8 of 25 were decided in overtime. Now, as satisfied as those who pushed for the OT tweaks might be, the AHLs 3-on-3 experiment continues to produce impressive results. Eight of the 16 overtime games played this season have ended 3-on-3. Six have ended in 4-on-4 and just two of the 16 have required a shootout. Rest assured that Red Wings GM Ken Holland, a strong advocate for 3-on-3 hockey, is pleased with these results. Darren Dreger and the TSN Hockey Insiders will have another edition of Insider Trading on Tuesday on Sportscentre and TSN.ca. Clearance Air Jordan Store . -- Theres been so much talk about Mike Moustakas at the plate that the third baseman ignored the conversation Wednesday -- even after doing something positive. Cheap Jordan From China .com) - The NBA will be on display overseas Thursday with the New York Knicks taking on the Milwaukee Bucks at O2 Arena in London. https://www.jordanchina.us/ . PETERSBURG, Fla.To figure out two things NHL general managers will be discussing at their annual March meeting, look no further than the controversial game the Los Angeles Kings and Detroit Red Wings played in mid-January. First, the Red Wings scored the tying goal after officials missed the puck hitting the protective netting, then the Kings wound up losing in a shootout. That could affect playoff positioning in the Eastern and Western Conferences, and thats a concern for everyone. No different than many fans, GMs hate to see a game end on an incorrect call and generally dont like to see one end in a shootout. So its only natural that altering or extending overtime and expanding video review will be hot topics on the agenda for meetings Monday through Wednesday in Boca Raton, Fla. When it comes to overtime, the hope is to have fewer games even reach the shootout, which was instituted after the 2004-05 lockout as a way of eliminating ties. Since then, 13.3 per cent of all regular-season games have gone to one, and thats seen as too much. "I would prefer for our game to be decided by playing hockey instead of the skill part of the game, which is the shootout," Jim Nill of the Dallas Stars said. "Its really tough. You can play a great game, play a great overtime and then you go to a shootout and just because you lose a shootout it feels like youve lost the game -- and you have, and it hurts because you played such a good game. I would rather lose a game by playing the game." Through Saturday, 121 of 962 games this season have gone to a shootout (12.57 per cent). Each team has participated in at least four, while the Washington Capitals lead the league with 15 of them through 64 games. A handful of general managers said in recent weeks that there was an appetite to reduce the number of shootouts by making some changes to overtime. Detroit GM Ken Holland has long sought adding time or a three-on-three element to overtime, and it has come time that Don Maloney of the Phoenix Coyotes figures more members of the group are "open-minded to reviewing it and discussing it." "In the past, it was generally touched on but deferred," Maloney said. "And I think as you go on with the parity of the league, I think we all have to take a harder look." Jim Rutherford of the Carolina Hurricanes usually sits near Holland at these meetings and is in favour of his proposals to change overtime. After plenty of talk over the years, perhaps more will get on board. "I think were heading that way," Rutherford said. "Its been talked about a long time, this is not something new. I dont know how many minutes itll end up being -- the total minutes in overtime. Thats really where the big discussion will come. But I think the fact that this has been discussed for a few years now, I think its gaining some momentum going into this meeting." What that momentum will turn into remains to be seen. Rutherford and Holland would like five minutes of the already-established four-on-four followed by five minutes of three-on-three, while Doug Armstrong of the St. Louis Blues voiced support for simply making four-on-four overtime longer. But, as Doug Wilson of the San Jose Sharks knows, change in the NHL tends to go in "phases." So its possible that the first change to overtime is a very subtle one: teams changing ends like they do in the second period so that theres a longer way to go for players to get off the ice for line changes. "I would be a hundred per cent in support," Maloney said. "If you look at the second period and the (long) line changes how often mistakes are made, and bad line changes lead to rushes. All of a sudden you do that in overtime with four people and the tiredness of the game, I think thats a natural evolution, myself. I think thats the first step." Red Wings coach Mike Babcock brought that up in Sochi after seeing overtime in the womens gold-medal game between Canada and the United States. Mistakes led to three penalties and then a power-play goal 8:10 into overtime. "The NHL looks at that right there, we want overtime to be over in a hurry, all you do is flip ends, make it as hard as you can," Babcock said while at the Olympics. "Its harder on the long change." Another subject that will get plenty of discussion is video review, which is currently limited to the situation room in Toronto determining if a goal was good or not. Wholesale Air Jordan. Even though it was just one instance, that Jan. 18 game between the Red Wings and Kings is example A for expanding review. "You can count on one hand how many times they miss a puck hitting the net, but that specific case and it ended up as a goal, yeah, it probably shouldve been (reviewed) -- maybe if the video department had that authority, it wouldve been used," Maloney said. "And I think we all agree that in that case that was just wrong, and we need to correct that." Several general managers cautioned that too much replay can be a bad thing. Just as its being debated in baseball and football, the biggest pitfall to more video reviews is the time they can take. "Our game is part of momentum and keeping the game going," Rutherford said. "But at the same time, the league has always said that they want to get goals right. We saw an example (in Detroit) where it had nothing to do with the guidelines of how the league proceeds, but we didnt get one right. "So thats something that well discuss, Im sure. But theres a fine line there: How many times can you review things in a game without slowing it down to change the time of a game another 15 minutes." In that same vein, Nill would like to see "tweaks" to video review in important cases but doesnt want the NHL to become a "robotic" game with frequent calls to the situation room. Still, theres a ground swell to at least add replay in isolated cases, like on plays goals are scored on. That may not mean instituting a challenge system for coaches right away but perhaps something more simple. "It would be nice to just have a monitor in the penalty box for the official to gather as much information to make the right call because theyre closest to the action like they have in other leagues," Wilson said, pointing to the model used in the NFL and NBA. Some things, like goaltender interference, would require a stricter interpretation to be subject to video review. Penalties, like players putting the puck over the glass or getting a double-minor called for high-sticking, would fall into another category to be considered. "I think everything thats critical to the outcome of the game, if its conveniently available, we should review," Columbus GM Jarkko Kekalainen said. "Not to disturb the flow of the game and the time of each game as a whole -- we dont want games to last four hours or anything like that. But with the technology these days I think that there should be some kind of a system where all the critical plays can be reviewed so that we dont see the (wrong) outcomes." With three days of meetings scheduled on Floridas east coast, general managers are expected to delve into a host of other topics, including the regulation -- or elimination -- of goaltender fights and the impact of the falling Canadian dollar on next years salary cap. At Decembers board of governors meeting, the 2014-15 cap was estimated at just above US$71 million, rising from the $64.3 million ceiling for this season. Kings GM Dean Lombardi told the Los Angeles Times that he and his colleagues were advised it could be as low as $US68 million as the Canadian dollar continues to fall. As of Saturday, the loonie was worth roughly 90 cents U.S., after being above 95 cents midway through 2013. Goalie fighting is expected to at least be touched on after it was broached at Novembers meeting in Toronto that followed the infamous incident between Ray Emery of the Philadelphia Flyers and Braden Holtby of the Capitals. Rutherford and Maloney indicated they believed the issue was a bit overblown at the time. "Really theyre so rare, arent they? That was an isolated (incident)," Maloney said. "If we start to see goalie fights every other game, yeah, OK, maybe theres a problem. I dont see it being a problem. That was a one-time incident that nobody liked, but I think our officials and the people that review the games, they do a pretty good job of cleaning up anything thats outside the rules. So I dont see a real mandate to start over-regulating the game in that area." ' ' '
