After losing Karl Alzner, a development that presents a great opportunity for skilled prospect Christian Djoos to get his first look in the NHL., Kevin Shattenkirk and Nate Schmidt this offseason the Washington Capitals are going to have some big openings on their blue line a seventh-round pick by the Capitals in 2012,Djoos,authentic Taylor Hall jersey, 45 assists) in only 66 games.,adidas Travis Hamonic jersey, is coming off of a monster season for the Capitals’ AHL team in Hershey that saw him record 58 points (13 goals That production made him the third-leading scorer on the team and by far the team’s most productive defenseman. He signed a two-year contract with the Capitals over the summer, especially after the production he put on the board in the AHL this past season.,adidas John Tavares jersey, with the first year of that contract being a two-way deal. But given the fact he would have to clear waivers before going back to the AHL it seems to be a solid bet that he is going to be on the Capitals’ roster to open the season Before he gets to the NHL though the Capitals have had him spending his summer trying to add more weight to his frame. Via CSN Mid-Atlantic’s Tarik El-Bashir: I need to get bigger,adidas Ryan McDonagh jersey,“For sure, getting bigger and stronger.”,” he said. “We’re working on it every day here in the gym and back home over the summer. It feels good The Capitals have him on a high calorie diet that requires him to eat much more than other players. ” he said. “Not the bad stuff but you gotta eat all the time.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Von Miller says Trevor Siemian has ''that Peyton Manning vibe .'' ''The energy that Peyton had, that's what Trevor has,Authentic Lawrence Taylor Jersey,'' Denver's superstar linebacker said. Siemian also has Brock Osweiler as a backup. Osweiler is getting a crash course in Mike McCoy's new offense following a whirlwind weekend in which he made a beeline for his old home after getting cut by Cleveland. ''This is Trevor's team, and I'm the backup,Authentic Eli Manning Jersey,'' Osweiler said upon his return to Denver, where he was Manning's understudy from 2012-15. That's a role reversal for the quarterbacks. Siemian picked Osweiler's brain as much,Womens Elite Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, if not more, than Manning's when he got to Denver as a seventh-round draft pick in 2015,Womens Landon Collins Jersey, then forced his way onto the 53-man roster of a Super Bowl-bound team. Now, he's the one helping Osweiler digest the playbook. ''He's got exposure to this system, for the most part, so he's done a really good job of picking things up on the fly. A little change in verbiage, but he's gotten a lot of it, I'm helping him out when I can. And shoot, he's helping me out,'' Siemian said. ''So, too. So, it's good.'' So, no, Manning's successor isn't looking over his shoulder at the man who was, for so long, Manning's heir apparent. ''I'm excited to have him back,'' Siemian said. ''I was good friends with Brock when he was here. He's was an unreal teammate, and I speak for a lot of the guys in the locker room when I say that. So, you know how sincere he is, if you've met Brock, how helpful he is. So, we're just lucky to have him.'' Siemian was the Broncos' third quarterback in 2015 but was one snap away from starting for the seven weeks Osweiler replaced an injured Manning. He rose to the top of the depth chart the following season when Manning retired a month after the Super Bowl and Osweiler signed with the Texans in free agency. On the same day Miller earned his first captainship of his seven-year NFL career,Authentic Odell Beckham Jr Jersey, Siemian's teammates named him a captain for the second straight season Wednesday. ''It's an unreal honor for me,Womens Lawrence Taylor Jersey,'' Siemian said. ''It's really cool. The respect I have for the locker room, it's cool to see they have some respect for me. We're just a couple of guys that got named. But we have so many leaders in the locker room. It's just cool to be a part of.'' Miller also had high praise for Osweiler . ''That was my guy. I didn't want him to leave in the first place,Womens Eli Manning Jersey, to have his energy back,Authentic Brandon Marshall Jersey,'' Miller said. ''So, to have him back like that, to have that energy back on the football field, back in the locker room, we won a lot of games with Brock. Some of the stuff that Brock did for this team was unbelievable. So, it kind of feels like 2015. And we did a lot of great stuff in 2015, so we're sure to have a great year this year.'' The Broncos needed a veteran backup QB after Paxton Lynch sprained his throwing shoulder against Green Bay on Aug. 26 in his first game after Siemian officially beat him out again. The Broncos are only on the hook for $775,000 of Osweiler's salary this season with the Browns paying the other $15.25 million. An even bigger bargain is Siemian, whose $615,000 annual salary doesn't come close to Osweiler's weekly paycheck of $941,176. Rex Ryan, who makes his debut as an ESPN television analyst Monday night when the Broncos host the Chargers, suggested over the summer that Lynch - who's making $880,741 this season - should be named the starter so the Broncos see what they have in their first-round investment. He's come around on Siemian, however,Authentic Landon Collins Jersey, suggesting Wednesday that winning the quarterback competition two years running shows the former Northwestern QB has the requisite grit and his teammates' trust. ''The players believe in him and they know he's believes in himself,Womens Brandon Marshall Jersey,'' Ryan said. ''And that's what you have to have at that position. Obviously, he doesn't have the (prototype size) that you look for ... But this is a game based on production.'' Notes: The Broncos signed former Arkansas RB Jonathan Williams to their practice squad. ... The other captains are CB Aqib Talib, WR Demaryius Thomas and K Brandon McManus. ... Thomas (groin) practiced for the first time since getting hurt against Green Bay. ''He looked great,'' coach Vance Joseph said.

A rule change for the upcoming season could (hopefully) lead to a serious reduction in the number of offside challenges from coaches.

For the 2017-18 season,adidas P.K Subban jersey, a failed offside coach's challenge for will result in a two-minute penalty against the team that called the review. This was first reported by Elliotte Friedman. Previously a failed challenge would result only in the loss of a timeout. A penalty by itself is a much more severe punishment especially given that this could result in a two-goal swing.

Consider if a team challenged a goal scored against them and lost. Not only would they have given up a goal, they would then face an immediate power play.

This rule will only apply to offside challenges and not goalie interference challenges which will still result in the loss of a timeout. Since offside is a much more clear rule than the always confusing goalie interference,authentic Carey Price jersey, this distinction makes sense.

The NHL is trying to increase scoring and the pace of the game. An offside challenge does the opposite. It stops the game in its tracks and takes goals off the board. Yet,authentic Andrew Shaw jersey, the league seems to think the rule is working. General managers decided during their meetings in March that there was no reason to change the offside challenge and Gary Bettman defended the rule right before Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final which saw the very first goal from P.K. Subban overturned.

So why make this change if the challenge is apparently working so well? Perhaps another upcoming rule change had something to do with it.

Starting this season,authentic Mike Fisher jersey, timeouts are rarely used in hockey. Each team only gets one and the vast majority of timeouts are called after an icing. When a team ices the puck,adidas Andrew Shaw jersey, teams will no longer be able to take a timeout after icing the puck. Unlike in football where coaches can strategically manage the clock or in basketball where timeouts are handed out like candy,adidas Carey Price jersey, it cannot change lines which can be a major advantage later in games. Coaches will use their timeouts in order to give their players a quick breather since they can't sub out.

at that point they really only have one major purpose: challenges. Sure,adidas Max Pacioretty jersey,If teams can no longer use timeouts after an icing,authentic Max Pacioretty jersey, but realistically they would primarily be saved for challenges which would result in even more stoppages in play. Mercifully,adidas Mike Fisher jersey, coaches can still use them at any other point in a game,authentic P.K Subban jersey, the NHL is not going to let this happen.

The Seattle Seahawks start their 2017-18 campaign on Sunday when they visit the Green Bay Packers. On Monday Pete Carroll commented on the health of his team, “We are pretty darn heathy.”

Carroll echoed that sentiment at his Friday press conference.

It's The Day Before The Day Before!! How are you celebrating #BlueFriday?? #12s #GoHawks

— Pete Carroll (@PeteCarroll) September 8, 2017

“We are really healthy,Womens Justin Hardy Jersey, ” Carroll said following the team’s practice. “For the most part.”

Cornerback Richard Sherman was a surprise on the injury report when he was listed as questionable with a thigh injury after not practicing on Friday. Carroll brushed off the questionable tag.

it really just felt something that we wanted to make sure that we really look after and give him a legs day as well,“Yeah,” Carroll said. “But we have to put him on the report for that. He should be fine.”

Wide receiver Tyler Locket who battled a knee injury through the bulk of the preseason is listed as questionable but carries the same optimistic backing from Carroll after being a full participant in practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

he’s had a great preparation,Womens Matt Ryan Jersey,” Carroll said. “Really excited about that,Womens Vic Beasley Jersey, and really excited for him. He’s such a spark for us,Authentic Justin Hardy Jersey,“Tyler’s ready to go, and so we’ll be able to get him involved in all phases.”

Defensive end Frank Clark (wrist) also got an optimistic review from Carroll on Friday.

” Carroll said. “He had two sore wrists that he was dealing with,Womens Joe Flaccos Jersey,“Frank is ready to go, but he practiced well the last two days.”

The outlook on running back Thomas Rawls (ankle) and strong safety Delano Hill (shoulder) is a bit foggier, however.

” Carroll said. “(Delano’s) shoulder,Authentic Tevin Coleman Jersey,  (Rawls) worked out well again today. That’ll go all the way up to game day, we are not quite sure yet, we are going to go all the way to Sunday to see how he is. He got enough work done so he is ready to play,“Yeah, but we did protect him during the week so we will see. He is really close to being back.”

Carroll also said that defensive tackle Jarran Reed (shoulder) was ready to play on Sunday. The only player listed doubtful on the injury report is linebacker Micael Wilhoite,Authentic Matt Ryan Jersey,who is battling a calf injury. Carroll will be happy to have a healthy squad against one of the NFC’s best.

you know,Womens Tevin Coleman Jersey,we need to be healthy,Authentic Joe Flaccos Jersey,” Carroll added. “They are that good,“Yeah, so these guys are ready to play good football. Jeremy [Lane] has really had just a tremendous offseason. I am really excited about him fitting in with our guys. We have raved about Earl’s [Thomas] work. Kam [Chancellor] has been right on point and [Richard] Sherm(an) has never been more consistent than he has at this point in an offseason. I think he has been great at it.

but we all know,“Everything lines up well,Authentic Vic Beasley Jersey, we are going to need it all to play against a fine club.”

The Seahawks’ regular season kicks off at 1:25 p.m. PT at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
