EAST RUTHERFORD, N. [url= ts-jersey-c-20/]Anton Forsberg Blue Antworten

EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Anton Forsberg Blue Jackets Jersey .J. -- When the NFL chose the Giants and Jets to host the 2014 Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, there was some wishful thinking in the area that the locals might somehow find a way to play in the first cold-weather title game in the modern era. The annual preseason game for the bragging rights to Saturday would then be a preview to a February showdown in front of the world. Yup. It was wishful thinking. With the 2013 regular season opener just weeks away, the Giants (1-1) and Jets (1-1) are longshots to reach the Super Bowl. Neither made the playoffs last year and neither is favoured to win their division this season. The Jets are still looking for a quarterback. The Giants need a defence. And both Rex Ryan and Tom Coughlin have a ton of questions to answer. Coughlin, who led the Giants to Super Bowl titles in 2008 and 2012, hasnt avoided talking about the big game being in the backyard. There is a countdown clock in the Giants locker room. "Thats a nice thing to be aware of," Coughlin said. "But we have a long way to go to be in that situation. But lofty goals? Yeah. There are 32 teams that the Super Bowl championship is their goal right now. But we have to make sure we take care of all the nuts and bolts in order to get to a position where youre even able to compete for something like that. "Yes, it is a reminder. Its all positive, provided all the work that has to go into it prevails." The Giants have undergone changes since missing the playoffs with a 9-7 record. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw was let go in a salary-cap move and defensive tackle Chris Canty and linebacker Michael Boley were released from a defence that finished 31st overall. So far this season, injuries have forced the offensive line to change two spots and kept defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul off the field. Eli Manning has managed one touchdown drive in two preseason games, and the defence still has not generated a pass rush. "Its always a big game," said Manning, whose favourite target, Victor Cruz, will be out with a heel injury. "Most times its the third preseason game. The starters are going to play a bunch. Its an important game for us to go out there and try to play well." The game is even more important for the Jets. Rookie Geno Smith, a second-round draft pick, will start at quarterback in his bid to take the job from Mark Sanchez. Ryan also hopes to give Chris Ivory more work at running back and to get a little more out of his defence, which has been so-so in the preseason. Playing the Giants, however, seems raise the interest level. Jets guard Willie Colon was raised in New York City and attended Hofstra, so he is very familiar with the rivalry despite experiencing it for the first time as a player. "Its another challenge for us to go out there and show up and get ready for the season," Colon said. "They have a good outfit. Their championships speak (volumes) for them and for us were trying to get on the ball and get things going, so its going to be a great night for us." Before coming to the Giants in 2011, punter Steve Weatherford played for the Jets. He said the rivalry always ratchets things up a little, even in the preseason. "If we win the game, thats just the cherry on the top," Weatherford said. "We just want to stay healthy." Giants veteran cornerback Corey Webster smiled when asked about the Jets. "I dont think about the Jets at all," said Webster, who is going to miss his second straight game with groin and knee injuries. "Thats not disrespect or anything. They are an NFL team from across town and I wish them all the best, but were focused on us. There is a little rivalry when you have two teams in the same town sharing a whole bunch of stuff. "But ultimately, I want to win every game and it doesnt matter who we are playing."

Jack Johnson Blue Jackets Jersey . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs. . -- Chris Jones and Louisville have done a tremendous job protecting the basketball this season and thats led to easy victories.TORONTO -- Chris Rudge and the Toronto Argonauts are on the clock. On Friday, the Argos and Rogers Centre announced theyve signed a lease agreement through Dec. 31, 2017. However, the deal wont be renewed past that date, meaning the CFL club must find a new home field in time for the 2018 season. Or sooner. The Argos have the option to terminate the deal earlier if they want. "Yes, theres a deadline but its not an unreasonable deadline," said Rudge, the Argos president and chief executive officer. "We could take a year to make the decision (regarding a new home) and two years to put it up and still be in good shape while also having the option to move out early. "While we dont have any definitive plans we could share with anybody yet, its our hope within six months to a year there will be something thats clearly definitive." Paul Beeston, the president and CEO of Rogers Centre and baseballs Toronto Blue Jays, didnt immediately return a telephone message Friday. But in a statement, Beeston said the agreement helps both parties. "The length of the deal allows the Argonauts a reasonable period of time to pursue other stadium options while allowing us sufficient time to plan the logistics of various stadium improvements including the installation of a grass playing surface for baseball at Rogers Centre," he said. If it takes until 2018 for the Argos to land a new home, they could be christening the new digs under new ownership. Senator David Braley, 72, who owns the Toronto franchise as well as the B.C. Lions, said he plans to sell one or both the clubs by the time he turns 75. "I do not anticipate owning two football franchises by the time Im age 75," Braley said Friday, adding if hes still healthy hed be open to keeping one of the teams three years from now. Of the two franchises, Braley would not only have an infinitely easier time selling the Lions but hed get a better price for the club. B.C. is a perennial contender on the field, has solid attendance and corporate sponsorship and is on sound financial footing. The Argos (7-4), despite being defending Grey Cup champions and currently atop the East Division, are only averaging 21,300 spectators per game at Rogers Centre and have long been losing money. However, Braley said hes talking with four communities -- he wouldnt identify them -- about the possibility of building a new stadium that would be home for the CFL club. Fridays announcement wasnt surprising as Rogers Centre informed the Argos over a year ago it was looking into installing a natural grass field that couldnt be reconfigured for football. The new agreement not only paves the way for Rogers Centre to make the switch to natural grass but ends years of speculation regarding the Argos future at the domed stadium. The Blue Jays are just one of two teams in the majors not playing on grass and the organization feels it must make the switch to continue being able to attract top talent. New facilities are the trend in the CFL these days. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are in their first season at Investors Group Field while the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will move into a new venue next year. The expansion Ottawa Redblacks are slated to return to the CFL in 2014 in a remodelled Frank Clair Stadium while in 17 the Saskatchewan Roughriders are scheduled to move into a new open-air building to replace Mosaic Stadium. The Argos have called Rogers Centre home since 89 when it opened as the former SkyDome. Playing in a dome certainly offered CFL fans protection in inclement weather but there has always been criticism over the lack of atmosphere in the facility, especially with the roof closed. Rogers Centre has a capacity of 50,000-plus fans for football and rocks when its full. Trouble is, Rogers Centre can be cavernous when the fans dont come out. "Its no secret many people would say the greatest impediment to us being more successful in drawing bigger crowds is the nature of that stadium," Rudge said. Nick Foligno Blue Jackets Jersey. "Its not as intimate as football fans would like and were probably better off trying to find a better place." Although the Jays and Argos have co-existed at Rogers Centre for years, its often been a struggle for the CFL team to draw a favourable home schedule there. Rogers Communications Inc. owns both the Jays and building so often baseball takes priority. With the Hamilton Tiger-Cats new stadium under construction, there was an opportunity for Toronto to host their arch rivals in their annual Labour Day showdown. But the Blue Jays were at home that weekend so the stadium couldnt be reconfigured in time and the Argos ended up playing a rare Tuesday night game the day after Labour Day. And with Rogers Centre being a multi-purpose venue, the Argos also faced competition from outside sources for their home dates. The Argos most logical option is BMO Field, home to Major League Soccers Toronto FC. The outdoor venue has a seating capacity of roughly 22,500 for soccer but can handle up to 28,000 for special events like concerts and provides an intimate setting. But there are still challenges there. Reconfiguring BMO Field would be an issue because its not designed to accommodate a Canadian football field, which is 150 yards long (including two 20-yard end zones) and 65 yards wide. Toronto FCs loyal fans have also made it clear they dont want to share their grass field with a CFL club. But Toronto FCs owners are looking at whether BMO Field can be refitted for football. Tim Lieweke, president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, has said the organization is examining all options to improve the facility -- including the addition of a roof -- but no changes will be made that negatively impact the soccer fans experience. There are also concerns a football team playing at BMO Field would cause serious damage to the playing surface, though the facility has hosted rugby contests without incident and the Argos have their own practice facility in Mississauga. Rudge said the Argos have talked with MLSE about BMO Field and hope to continue discussions but supported Braleys statements that the club has other options. The ideal facility would be an open-air venue with a seating capacity of 29,000 and available parking for some 10,000 vehicles while being accessible via public transit. "Its $150 million, ballpark, to do a stadium," Rudge said. "It probably requires an investment or partnership with multiple layers of government, a multi-use kind of investment in lands so you could amortize the costs of the stadium across commercial and residential investments as well that give you a better payback. "Theres also being close to GO trains, subways and major highways while being accessible to public transit and having ample parking. All of these things have to be taken into consideration." If the Argos set up shop in a new facility outside of Toronto, Rudge understands there will be those who criticize the team for leaving the downtown core. "There are others in this argument who say, Well do you want to lose the excitement of being downtown," he said. "Probably not but I can tell you I look forward to losing the lack of excitement by walking in and seeing not as many fans there as I think our product deserves. "We said a couple of years ago when I got involved here we were going to invest in the product on the field and I think weve worked hard to create a team thats giving the city some excitement. Certainly, last year we knocked it out of the park in every respect and it still hasnt resulted in what we wouldve liked to have seen in season tickets this year."
