#1 t to be the guy for our t von chenwen121314 15.10.2019 14:10

Coming off a season in which he led the Toronto Maple Leafs to their first playoff berth in eight seasons, it would have been easy for goaltender James Reimer to take the acquisition of Jonathan Bernier personally, instead Reimer says hes looking forward to the competition and intends to support the former Kings backup as much as he can. Tommy McDonald Youth Jersey . “First and foremost we wear the same jersey, so youre a good guy, youre a good teammate and you look out for your teammates, but aside from that, both of us are going to want to be the starter and definitely I want to keep that and want to be the guy for our team and be the guy that wins us a cup,” Reimer said. “Thatll add some good competition and hopefully we can push each other and pile up a lot of wins for our team.” Speaking with Gareth Wheeler Wednesday on Blue Lunch on TSN 1050, the 25-year-old incumbent said hes focused on winning the no. 1 job, but it wont be at the expense of undermining his teammate. “Its really important to get along,” Reimer said. “I think when you do and you play similar and youre on the same page, I think it gives you another set of eyes, almost like a goalie coach sitting on the bench watching you play every game.” Despite battling through a strained MCL which caused him to miss seven games, the fourth-year pro posted the best save percentage and goals against marks of his career. Having to battle his way up from the AHL and East Coast League, Reimer is used to having to prove his worth to coaches and management. “It shouldnt really matter whos behind you or whos ahead of you when you step onto the ice and youre the guy in net, you want to stop as many pucks as possible and thats the kind of mentality Ill take,” he said. Coming off the teams first playoff appearance since prior to the 2004-05 lockout, GM Dave Nonis took an active approach in the off-season adding forwards Dave Bolland and David Clarkson in addition to Bernier. “Theyll bring a lot to our team, obviously being from the Toronto area that adds a little jump in their step,” Reimer said of the Mimico natives. “Anytime youre playing in front of family and friends its an extra boost…Theyre great universal players that can play in many different situations.” Possessing an ability to play a two-way game as well as having an element of toughness is something which should allow the Leafs to better compete with the upper-echelon teams in the Conference according to Reimer. “You look at the top teams in the league who have been successful over the last couple of years and theyre gritty, hard-working teams and when you go into their barn you know itd going to be a battle.” Although Nonis was comfortable spending big dollars to sign Clarkson and Tyler Bozak, he has yet to come to terms with restricted free agents Nazem Kadri and Cody Franson. For his part, Reimer hopes the sides can come together, saying both Franson and Kadri were a “big part of our success (last season). “They were huge components of our team and our success and obviously as a fellow teammate you and them to get a fair price because thats what they deserve and thats what theyve earned.” Mike Quick Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Dallas Goedert Eagles Jersey . Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. https://www.eaglessportsgoods.com/Womens...nverted-Jersey/ . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. INDIANAPOLIS -- The Butler University basketball team is coming off huge wins over No. 16 Arizona in the Las Vegas Invitational championship Nov. 25 and then at Utah on Monday.So Butler coach Chris Holtmann is hoping for no letdown when his No. 18 Bulldogs (7-0) are home to face Central Arkansas (1-6) at 4 p.m. (EDT) at Hinkle Fieldhouse.Central Arkansas is a team that has been able to score really well. Theyve been good offensively, Holtmann said. Right now you want to have a good understanding of the opponent. You also want to really focus on your teams improvement and your teams growth. Thats our dual focus as we continue to play non-league games.The Bears are averaging 70.7 points per game on 42.0 percent shooting. In addition to their scoring, Holtmann said the Bears play a matchup zone that Butler needs to be prepared to face.Another focus is Holtmann doesnt want his team looking ahead to some key upcoming dates at in-state rival Indiana State (Wednesday), hosting Cincinnati (Dec. 10) and playing No. 13 Indiana University (Dec. 17) in the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis.The challenge is we did not play well last year when we came back after being gone for a week to Puerto Rico, Holtmann said. Our guys are aware of that and I think you try to stress to your guys that this is about playing to the standard and expectation that we have on every possession. Thats what were trying to do, regardless of the opponent. Thats our focus. Quality teams may not have their A game every night. There is competitiveness, awareness and an attention to detail every night and thats what it needs to be. Wilbert Montgomery Eagles Jersey. .Butler is off to its best start since beginning the 2008-09 season 8-0. The Bulldogs are led by junior forward Kelan Martin, who is averaging a team-high 16.4 points.Butler is hitting 50.4 percent of its shots while holding opponents to 40.6 percent.Six of our 11 guys havent played in a Butler uniform before, so thats over half the team, so we knew we would have difficult moments this year going through some growing pains, Holtmann said. What Ive been pleased with most is weve been able to weather those difficult moments and able to respond to some game adversity and come back with the right approach. Thats allowed us to win some close games.Despite losing six of seven, all on the road, Central Arkansas lost by just two points (49-47) at No. 17 Wisconsin Nov. 11 and 12 (102-90) at Oklahoma State Nov. 14.Junior guard Jordan Howard leads the Bears with a 16.3 scoring average, just a tick ahead of senior guard Derreck Brooks 16.2 average.Thursday, Central Arkansas started strong, taking a 37-30 lead at half-time at Southeast Missouri. The Bears then were outscored 36-1 to open the second half and lost 87-63.Like we tell the guys all the time, you just have to learn how to win, Bears coach Russ Pennell said. Its not about talent, its not basketball plays. Its the other stuff. Its the loose ball. Its standing in the right place, all the positioning stuff, rebounding.In the teams 81-76 victory over Army, Pennell said his team did those things. ' ' '
