World’s oldest hockey stick; Backstrom to Dynamo; NHLPA proposal anticipation (Puck Headlines)

18 Oct

Here are your Puck Headlines: a glorious collection of news and views collected from the greatest blogosphere in sports and the few, the proud, the mainstream hockey media.

• Tired of these new one-piece sticks that shatter the second you release a one-timer? Fear not because the world's oldest is up for auction! This yellow birch stick from circa 1650 is available via Classic Auctions. Bidding is currently over $3,000. [Classic Auctions]

Probably not a good sign that Nicklas Backstrom is on his way to Dynamo as the NHLPA prepares to submit their counterproposal. [Washington Post]

• The NHLPA is expected to offer their take on the NHL's proposal from Tuesday. Mirtle believes escrow will be the biggest factor in the players not accepting the offer. [Globe and Mail]

• Chris Stevenson on why the players need to negotiate instead of countering with their own proposal yet again: "The league got criticized for putting its offer out there in the public domain, but at least the NHL has crafted something the players and others can tear down. And didn't NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr once say he'd like to see negotiations televised?" [QMI via Ottawa Sun]

• Elliotte Friedman agrees: "No one's saying the players have to take the league's proposal as is. But, it is in their own best interests to sit at the table and make a serious effort at seeing where the next week or two will take them. This must be business, not personal." [CBC]

• Goal No. 1 for the Dallas Stars once the CBA gets resolved: sign Jamie Benn. [Heika]

• Things got pretty wild in the crowd at a Cape Breton high school game: "She pulled down her pants in front of the crowd and everyone. So I guess she got kicked out or something, I'm not sure." [CTV]

Don Cherry: "The lockout is just a sad thing." Like Charlie Brown or something. [Montreal Gazette]

• Reebok will have some competition for NHL jersey rights in 2016 as Bauer has stated they're prepared to get involved in the negotiations. [The Star]

• The draft pick the Washington Capitals received for Scott Stevens from the St. Louis Blues is still paying off for them. [Japers' Rink]

• Real nice story on junior hockey player Adam Restoule who's battled back from a serious kidney ailment. [Buzzing the Net]

• Kevin Bieksa's charity game last night raised $200,000 for Canuck Place, the Canucks Autism Network, and the Canucks Family Education Centre. Singer Michael Buble "wimped" out, but matched the $100,000 the game raised through ticket sales. [Pass It To Bulis]

• Speaking of charity, next Friday, members of the 2010 Stanley Cup winning Chicago Blackhawks will reunite for a game to help benefit Ronald McDonald House. [ESPN Chicago]

• While the lockout sorts itself out, Barry Trotz and David Poile of the Nashville Predators are keeping their normal schedules, except for one major thing. [Tennessean]

• Just how did Gary Bettman get so good at the lockout negotiating business? [Slew Footers]

• Peyton Manning isn't just a quarterback in Denver, he's also an 8th grade bantam hockey player. [Denver Post]

• It's Week 1 of news from a world where the NHL is actually playing. [Sports Pickle]

• Finally, here's the hit Tommy Wingels, now playing for KooKoo in Finland, laid out that earned him a 3-game suspension (per Matias Strozyk):

Maryland will wear weird faux-wool jerseys against Kentucky to honor the Brooklyn Dodgers

18 Oct

If the alternate jerseys Maryland will be wearing against Kentucky on Nov. 9 appear to be merely the latest abominable example of college basketball's newfound infatuation with gray, then take a closer look.

Those aren't just basic ugly gray jerseys. They're ugly gray jerseys with a textured pattern meant to resemble wool.

Since the season-opening Kentucky matchup will be held at the brand-new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Under Armour chose the unusual look to honor the Brooklyn Dodgers. The faux-wool jersey is supposed to be reminiscent of 1950s-style baseball uniforms, while the Maryland script is both something the Terps have worn previously and another homage to baseball.

"The expectation is for teams to come out in unique uniforms for big games," Adam Clement, Under Armour's lead designer for uniforms, said in a statement. "We worked with the school to do something that showed the appreciation for sports in Brooklyn."

The gray jerseys are just one of a myriad of new looks Maryland will be unveiling next season. Expect the Terps to also don a "Pride" basketball jersey modeled after the state flag and reminiscent of the ones the football program wore during the 2011 season.

Whereas the preliminary design of the Pride jerseys appears to be bold yet tasteful, these Brooklyn jerseys don't hold the same appeal.

First, like most gray jerseys, they're not exactly aesthetically pleasing. And secondly, why should Maryland wear a jersey that honors the Brooklyn Dodgers? If the Terps ever play in Montreal, will they bring back the Expos logo?

Thankfully, the jerseys are merely a one-time-only experiment. As one commenter on the Maryland-themed site, Testudo Times, said, "They are ugly as sin and the University of Maryland basketball is paying homage to a Brooklyn baseball team. I don't get it."

7-on-7: Special injured running back edition, featuring Richardson, Bradshaw

18 Oct
by in General

Let's begin with an encouraging quote from Browns rookie Trent Richardson, who was sidelined for a stretch in Week 6 with a rib issue. These were his thoughts on Wednesday, after putting in a limited practice:

"I'm going to try not to let the coaches tell me I can't play," Richardson said after practice. "I want to be out there. I want to be out there with my team. I want to be out there fighting with them, playing every down with them. They usually see me, so in my head, most definitely, I'm playing."

It's clearly a nice sign that Richardson was able to put in some work, mid-week. Cleveland has the Colts on deck, so the match-up is plenty friendly. Indianapolis currently ranks No. 29 against the run, allowing 159.0 rushing yards per game and 5.0 per carry. If Richardson can't handle a full workload, Montario Hardesty will be a factor.

Ahmad Bradshaw is again dealing with some foot problems, of as-yet-unknown severity. Bradshaw is coming off a pair of excellent games, so this is particularly unwelcome news. He didn't practice on Wednesday, so you'll want to pay close attention to the end-of-week reports. We should note that Andre Brown has returned to practice, having sufficiently recovered from his concussion. David Wilson would be in the mix as well, if Bradshaw's issues persist.

Neither Rashard Mendenhall nor Isaac Redman practiced on Wednesday, and the pair is considered questionable for the upcoming Sunday night game at Cincinnati. You'll recall that Pittsburgh's O-line is also banged up (Pouncey, Gilbert), so things aren't looking great for that offense at the moment. The Mendenhall and Redman issues don't seem severe, so there's reason to believe one or both should be good to go.

If Ed Werder can be believed on non-Favre matters, DeMarco Murray is apparently telling Dallas teammates that he'll return for the rematch against the Giants in Week 8. On behalf of Murray owners everywhere, I accept these terms. Felix Jones, of course, remains a solid single-serving play versus the Panthers.

Houston's Ben Tate (toe) practiced on Wednesday, and his head coach had some nice things to say:

Kubiak said [Tate] was "back to work full-time" and "had a really good day."

So that's nice. With Arian Foster on pace for something like 12,000 carries this season, Tate's return to health is key.

OK, that's enough RB news...

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) didn't practice on Wednesday, and no one seems to be spreading much sunshine about his condition. This is a legit concern. Graham owners will clearly need to have a Plan B at their disposal. Here's a pile of TEs, for your review.

A bunch of Dwayne Bowe-to-the-Dolphins buzz popped up yesterday, connected to Yahoo!'s Jason Cole. However, Jason himself threw cold water on that specific rumor not long after it erupted. But then he tossed out this nugget... if you're a fan of a receiver-starved team (Washington, Miami, St. Louis, et al), feel free to speculate. Bowe is headed for free agency, unless he gets the franchise tag again. The NFL trade deadline — which is typically a lot less active than your fantasy league's trade deadline — doesn't arrive until Tuesday, October 30.
