#1 e is one of the key bowlers, and obviously well miss him, von MJL456 11.09.2018 16:18

The Vancouver Canucks enter the season with two goals.The first is to qualify for the playoffs. The other is to incorporate youth into the lineup.If balancing competitiveness and development sounds like a tricky proposition, Canucks general manager Jim Benning isnt concerned.I dont think it has to be mutually exclusive, Benning said. We want our young players to develop in a winning environment so they learn to play the right way.To that end, Benning traded for former Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson and Bruins right winger Loui Eriksson. Benning hopes that the duo, along with Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Alex Edler and some of the other veterans can mentor the youngsters, including Sven Baertschi, Bo Horvat and Jake Virtanen.When you acquire players with experience, they can help our young players, hold them accountable the right way, Benning said. I think you can do a balancing act of trying to draft well, develop your players well and still try to compete and try to make the playoffs.Vancouver has missed the playoffs two out of the last three seasons and the challenge wont be any easier this season in a division with San Jose, Los Angeles and Anaheim.Here are some areas to keep an eye on over the course of the season:OFFENSIVE UPGRADEVancouvers 2.27 goals per game ranked 29th in last season. Enter Eriksson, who had a 30-goal campaign with Boston in 2015-16.When we kind of digested what happened with the team over the course of the year, said Benning, we thought adding a skilled player like Loui would help our group.SWEET SWEDESEriksson is Swedish. So, too, are Daniel and Henrik Sedin. Is it fait accompli that the trio will be a line for the entirety of the season?No, Benning said. We acquired Loui because hes a good hockey player. Hes versatile. He can play left wing or right wing. He can play on your first power play, he can kill penalties. Hes a guy that whatever line hes on, he makes that line better. Hes also a guy that you could move to another line and get that line going.MUSCULAR `DThe trend in the NHL is to emphasize speed and skill over size and power. Yet in trading for Gudbranson, the Canucks brought in a defenseman known for his brawn. Why? I just felt on our back end last year maybe we werent hard enough to play against, Benning said. He brings a hardness and a steadiness to our group back there.YOUTH MOVEMENTThe Sedins and Eriksson are known offensive commodities. But if the Canucks are to qualify for the playoffs, Benning is hoping for production from Baertschi, Horvat, Virtanen and Brandon Sutter. Baertschi finished with 28 points in 69 games. Horvat recorded 40 points in 82 games. Virtanen had 13 points in 55 games, while Sutter was limited to nine points in 20 games.MILLER TIMEShould the Canucks find themselves out of the playoff race at the trade deadline, Benning might have a trade chip in goaltender Ryan Miller. Miller, 36, is in the third and final year of a three-year, $18 million contract. He is coming off a season in which he posted a 2.70 goals against average and .916 save percentage in 51 games. cheap nfl jerseys supply .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. cheap jerseys supply . -- Jakob Silfverberg is making himself right at home with the Anaheim Ducks, scoring four goals in his first four games. http://www.nikenflcheapjerseys.com/ .

The tourists will begin the first of three Investec Tests on Thursday on the ground where they wrapped up their maiden series victory in England two years ago.Silva was part of that team and, in the absence of retired duo Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, he believes it is time for others to take collective responsibility as Sri Lanka bid for a repeat. England captain Alastair Cook with his team after losing the second Test at Headingley We did well here. We were thrilled with that, but this is a new series, said the opener. We have to start all over again. Itll be tough, but we are looking forward to that challenge.Sanga and Mahela have left now. So its time for all these youngsters to take their responsibility and do their jobs ... thats very important.If everyone does that, therell be nothing to complain about. Silva made 13 in each innings on his previous visit to Leeds, so is hoping for better luck this time.Not everyone will get a start. So whoever does has to capitalise and get a big score, he said.We need to make sure we put up at least 300 ... to put ourselves in the game. The first-innings score will be very important to set the tone for the bowlers to do the rest. James Vince could make his debut when England play Sri Lanka in the 1st Test at Headingley Sri Lanka will also be missing Dhammika Prasad, ruled out of the first Test at least with a shoulder injury and therefore unavailable to reprise his heroics of 2014 - when he took five second-innings wickets en route to victory at Headingley.ddddddddddddHe is one of the key bowlers, and obviously well miss him, added Silva. But we have other very talented bowlers and we have to back ourselves, and take our responsibility.We are all very confident, and weve prepared well. The boys are shaping up nicely.Watch England and Sri Lankas first Investec Test, at Headingley, from 10am, Thursday, Sky Sports 2.
