Cheap NHL Toronto Maple Leafs Womens Auston Matthews Jerseys 2017

NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. — Auston Matthews has heard the question on repeat for weeks.
After a resplendent rookie season, what exactly does the NHL’s reigning Rookie of the Year have planned for his encore? The answer – whatever it winds up being – began taking shape this past summer the same way it had the four before: on a sheet of ice with performance coach Darryl Belfry.

Matthews has been an eager student of Belfry’s since he saw the undeniable results of his tutelage on display by NHL stars like John Tavares and Sidney Crosby. The results of that relationship born from hours of one-on-one training have been exceptionally positive so far, but maintaining an edge in a league where speed and skill are the premium currency is no easy task.
So this summer, Belfry, who works with the Maple Leafs as a player development consultant, decided to embark on a new venture and host his own skills camp. Matthews, of course, was all in. Ditto teammate Morgan Rielly. They descended on Fort Myers , Florida (where Belfry owns a hockey school) in late August, along with the likes of Patrick Kane, Seth Jones, Noah Hanifin, Jack Eichel, Cam Fowler, Lars Eller, Shayne Gostisbehere, Mike Matheson, Jack Johnson, Ryan Hartman, Kyle Palmieri and Nick Schmaltz, to put the final days of their summer to good use.
“When you get all those elite guys out there, you really bump up the intensity and that’s what really helped coming into training camp, having done it at that level already,” Matthews said on Sunday. “Those guys have been on the Olympic teams, they’re All-Stars, they’ve been around the league and won Stanley Cups, so working with them gives all of us a competitive advantage.”
Showing off what Matthews and Rielly picked up from Belfry began at Leafs’ training camp, which wrapped up its three-day stint in Niagara Falls on Sunday, which also happened to be Matthews’ 20th birthday. Belfry’s employment with the Leafs precludes him from speaking to the media, but his reputation as a coach precedes him. He’s known for seeing the game through a different lens and drawing out the most from a player’s skill set.
At each of the camp’s four days, he split the forwards and defence up to focus on individual skills – like end-zone details, breakouts and working off the rush – before bringing everyone together to do high-tempo work in three-on-three and four-on-four, followed by an off-ice gym session.
Rielly was pleased with his offseason to that point and saw the camp as an opportunity to push himself further with “one of the best skill coaches in hockey.”
“I felt I was in great shape and feeling really good on the ice, so I felt it was time to really focus on the offensive side of the game,” he said of deciding to attend the camp. “Darryl is pretty intuitive and creative. I think it’s important to be open to what he’s trying to teach you. I’m also a believer that we have one of the best coaches in hockey [in Mike Babcock], so it’s important to listen to him too, and find that balance in your game.”
Entering his fifth year in the NHL, Rielly has experienced the league’s shift to more of a speed game in real time. Both he and the Leafs believe there’s another level he can reach in his game, at both ends of the ice, and an intensive few days with players as eager as him to push their games forward will pay dividends long term.
“When you have a chance to go train with guys for a week who are world-class players right before camp, you take advantage,” he said. “You never know what the next thing is going to be, whether it’s adjusting to more speed or skill or the systems that teams are playing, because that’s one thing that’s changed a lot, too. You have to be prepared for everything.”
The details of Matthews’ early years on the ice in Arizona, where rinks were small and puck thievery was encouraged, have been endlessly pored over since even before he was drafted number one overall. His unconventional path gave Matthews a foundation of creativity that Belfry has only been able to amplify and it’s why Matthews shuttles throughout the summer from his home base in Scottsdale to see Belfry in Florida (or Toronto) for days at a time and why the camp was the perfect chance to fine-tune his game before a season where expectations couldn’t be much higher.
“Darryl has a pretty brilliant mind for hockey. It’s kind of all he thinks about – he lives, eats and dreams it,” Matthews said. “The way he sees the game is so differently than the average hockey eye does, which is what really gives you an edge. Instead of doing a typical skate down the ice and chipping the puck in, [with Darryl] you’re forcing the defence to switch. Or if you’re an offensive forward, he really wants you spreading out the ice and doing things that can break you free so there’s more space. When you’re a skill guy you need that and he gives you tools for that.”
Other than just learning from Belfry, the camp gave Matthews a glimpse into Kane, a player he’s watched closely for years on the ice. Matthews was a sponge around the Hart Trophy winner, watching firsthand what it takes to compete at a high level season after season.
“His habits are just so good; he works so hard,” Matthews said. “That’s something I didn’t know too much about because you just look at a guy like that and he’s just gifted and so talented and skilled, but he’s worked at it and you can tell when he’s on the ice. He’s so focused and works real hard and then, off the ice, too, he’s got his own regime he goes through. I was really impressed. It was something I could take with me from there.”
In the gym, Matthews worked on getting more explosive and faster in his first couple steps, work that so far looks to be paying off as the Leafs look towards opening of the preseason schedule on Monday. And even before a new season begins, both he and Rielly could see Belfry’s camp becoming a regular part of their summer.
“Now that we’ve had a chance as players to talk about what we did that week and having one year under our belt, we know what we could change and do better to make it even better,” Rielly said. “Probably all those guys, if not more guys, would want to go back.”

Wholesale Authentic Football Atletico Madrid Jerseys 2017

Deadline day has come and gone, and all the latest deals and potential deals can be found here, but there’s plenty brewing in the market as clubs begin to look toward January.

United keep famous No. 7 free for Griezmann
Have Manchester United given up hope of signing Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann? Not at all, says the Star.

It reports that United “have left their No. 7 shirt free for a major signing — and have put aside £100 million in order to make it.”

The man in the frame for that big-money move is France international Griezmann, who was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer but in the end opted to sign a new Atletico deal.

The Star says he remains “very much on manager Jose Mourinho’s wishlist” as United look to fill a shirt that has been graced by superstars including George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo over the years.

And the Manchester Evening News concurs, reporting that United “believe their commercial strength will prove pivotal at a time when spending has escalated at a remarkable rate.”

It says that could be a key factor in next summer’s window, when Griezmann “will be back on Mourinho’s wanted list — and Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale will be too.”

Atleti, meanwhile, continue to be linked with Chelsea striker Diego Costa, with reports continuing to suggest that his arrival could bring about Griezmann’s departure.

Blues and Reds set for battle over defensive prospect
The window has hardly been closed for any time at all, but we should already be bracing ourselves for a forthcoming transfer tug of war, according to the Sun.

It reports that both Premier League champions Chelsea and Liverpool are interested in Uruguay’s Under-18 captain Sebastian Caceres and have sent scouts to watch him.

But they are not the only clubs interested in central defender Caceres, who plays for Montevideo club Liverpool FC; Barcelona and Manchester City are also keen.

The Sun says “there is now a race to land the youngster, who does not require a work permit as he holds a Spanish passport, making it easier to seal a move away from Uruguay.”

It adds that Caceres has an English-based representative, a factor that “could work in favour of Premier League clubs.”
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says it never crossed his mind to swap Raheem Sterling for Alexis Sanchez.
Tap-ins
– Brighton are basking in the glow of a first top-flight win for more than 30 years, but the Mail reports that boss Chris Hughton is still targeting a striker as he looks to ensure that they can stay in the Premier League.

The Seagulls saw off West Bromwich Albion 3-1 on Saturday, but the Mail says Hughton “is well aware that they did so without the new striker they desperately wanted” after potential deals fell through in the summer.

– Defender Ryan Shawcross has decided he wants to end his playing days with the club, according to the Mirror. It reports that the Potters captain, who has been at the club for more than a decade, “hopes to finish his playing days at Stoke because he feels so at home.” He is under contract at Stoke until 2021.

Cheap Basketball Houston Rockets James Harden Black Jerseys 2017

HOUSTON — Rockets point guard James Harden says he will donate $1 million to the city of Houston to aid in Hurricane Harvey recovery.

Harden made the announcement Saturday with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. They spoke at a news conference at the NRG Center, which has housed evacuees since Harvey swamped the Houston area more than a week ago.

Harden went to high school in California and college in Arizona but said Houston is his home.

He posed for photos with fans and said the money would go to people who need it.

The Rockets gave Harden a four-year extension in July, with sources telling ESPN at the time that it is a supermaximum extension that will guarantee him $228 million through the 2022-23 season.

Oscar winners Sandra Bullock and Leonardo DiCaprio also have pledged $1 million to charities helping with Harvey relief.

President Donald Trump also pledged a $1 million donation, but it’s unclear who will get the money. The donation is expected to come from his personal fortune.

Trump also visited evacuees Saturday in Houston.
