PHILADELPHIA – Back troubles limited Randy Carlyle in recent weeks, but the Maple Leafs head coach was back on his feet and busy at draft weekend in Philadelphia.Sidney Jones Youth Jersey . Carlyle, alongside team president Brendan Shanahan and general manager Dave Nonis, continued to hunt for the remainders of a coaching staff, following the dismissal of his three assistant coaches – including long-time no. 2 Dave Farrish – in early May. The Leafs plan on hiring two new assistant coaches to support Carlyle, who received a two-year contract extension after Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon were fired. Touching down in the state of Pennsylvania with team personnel on Wednesday, Carlyle has been speaking with prospective candidates all week and throughout the early stages of summer. "We have a criteria," he said of the interview process, minutes before Fridays draft was to begin. "We sat down and we created a few boxes that we felt we needed to fill. "And its typical where youre in an interview process you look for peoples strengths and the experience is always a factor – where theyve worked before or who theyve worked with; have they ever been a head coach before; what programs have they run; what were their jobs with their previous employer; did they run power-play or penalty killing units. Those are the kind of things that typically go into an interview process." Though he managed to hold onto his job, significant alterations to his coaching staff were deemed necessary after a season that rapidly deteriorated into another playoff-less season. Absent answers to the wreckage amid the unraveling, Carlyle has finally digested what took place and is looking to turn the page. But he remains of the view that "compete" was the downfall of a club that tumbled out of a certain playoff position in the final weeks. "We didnt compete enough in the situations that we were presented with and consistently enough," said Carlyle, noticeably relaxed after a stressful season. Change is coming, he understands, and not just to the coaching staff. With a glut of unrestricted free agents – many of whom wont return – and multiple pieces to adjust and rearrange, the Leafs will resemble a different team in the fall. Just how different remains unclear, but it appears that youth should be part of the agenda with Morgan Rielly, Peter Holland, Carter Ashton, Jerry DAmigo, Petter Granberg, Josh Leivo among others in line to either garner more opportunity or earn NHL jobs. "Theyre going to be given more of an opportunity," Carlyle said. "Thats our plan. Our teams not going to be the same coming back. Its as simple as that. With the amount of unrestricted free agents that we have and the make-up of our group we know that some of those players wont be back with our hockey club." A favourite of Carlyle, in spite of his brief Toronto experience, Dave Bolland could be among them. The Leafs have engaged in a back and forth with the Bolland camp – fronted by agent Anton Thun – but have yet to find agreeable terms ahead of July 1st."Its not that were not speaking to each other," Nonis said Thursday, "its at this point we havent been able to find common ground for a deal." Bolland is one among many potential changes for the Leafs, who are also likely to shuffle their bottom-six forward group (with a glut of unrestricted free agents), defence, and backup goaltending position. Adjustment to the core group, following the second regular season collapse in three years, is also a distinct possibility. All of which means a busy offseason ahead for Carlyle and the Toronto management team. Rasul Douglas Eagles Jersey .The Dallas Cowboys released Sam from the practice squad Tuesday, dropping the rush end as they prepare for several potential reinforcements to return to the defensive line. Sidney Jones Jersey .

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (5) – He had good saves on Giroux, Akeson, and Hartnell tonight.GREEN BAY, Wis. - Humble and hard-working. Unassuming and respected. Raised on a farm in Kansas, Jordy Nelson has a down-to-earth personality that fits perfectly in blue-collar Green Bay.Heres the catch: Hes a record-setting receiver, too.An 86-yard output on six receptions in last weeks win against Detroit allowed Nelson to set the Packers single-season mark with 1,519 yards receiving.All of this is mind-boggling to be honest with you — winning the Super Bowl, being part of this organization, Nelson said after the 30-20 victory over the Lions. Its fun. You dont take it for granted because one of these days, its going to be over.But retirement is a long way off. For now, hes half of one of the most productive receiving duos in the league, joining Randall Cobb as quarterback Aaron Rodgers two top targets.There is much work to be done to get ready for the Packers playoff game on Jan. 11 at Lambeau Field. And if there is anyone on the team who embraces the work and preparation needed to become one of the top players in the league, its Nelson.As a coach, its what youre looking for. Hes the example. Hes what a Green Bay Packer (is), what you want every young guy to come in and take a look at, coach Mike McCarthy said. Just the way he goes about his business, the way he approaches work every single day. Hes the same person every day.For Nelson, training camp began with the signing of a four-year contract extension. He entered the season as Green Bays clear No. 1 option at receiver, following the departures in recent years of veterans Greg Jennings, Donald Driver and James Jones, along with Jermichael Finley at tight end.By all accounts, his workmanlike persona hasnt changed in seven years in the league. Not that Nelson is one to draw attention to himself, but the receivers production can sometimes get lost in the attention paid to Rodgers stellar play.After years of working together — perfecting timing, routes and other nuances of the game — Rodgers-to-Nelson has turned into a lethal combination for opposing defences. Donnel Pumphrey Eagles Jersey. Plays can be tweaked on the fly just by simple glances or gestures.I wouldnt trade him for anybody in the league, Rodgers said. High praise from someone known as a stickler for preparation.This season, Cobb has been as nearly as indispensable as Nelson.According to the Packers, Nelson and Cobb became the first duo in NFL history with 90 catches, 1,200 yards and 12 or more touchdowns in the same season. They are the third set of teammates in the same season with at least 1,200 yards and 10 touchdowns. The other pairs are Minnesotas Cris Carter and Randy Moss in 1999, and Denvers Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker in 2013.Nelson is more of the deep threat, while Cobb is the elusive and shifty target who can keep drives going on third downs and in the red zone.Cobb, whose contract is up after this season, appears poised to join Nelson for a big deal — presumably with the Packers. Safety Morgan Burnett, drafted a year ahead of Cobb in 2010, said the receiver seemed ready for the NFL from his first day at Lambeau.Randalls the type of guy, ever since he came in as a rookie, it seemed like there was never was a stage too big for him. When he came in, you thought he was a five-year vet, Burnett said. Same as Jordy, he carries himself like a pro, studies the game.Nelson and Cobb have maintained consistent production through the season in spite of the attention paid by secondaries to Rodgers overwhelmingly top options. Rodgers has said the Packers have adjusted in part by lining up the receivers in different spots.For instance, Cobb lately has seen more snaps lining up near Rodgers, taking handoffs and also running routes out of the backfield. Nelson can do damage in the slot or on the outside.It was fun to get Jordy the record. Randall made some great plays for us, Rodgers said after the Lions game, and we finished that thing off the right way.__Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
