For the first time since 2007, the New York Rangers on Thursday will open a season at Madison Square Garden, and they will do so against their in-city rival, the New York Islanders. Nike Air Max Tavas Noir et Blanc Femme .Thanks to a three-year arena renovation project that would bleed into October and some odd NHL scheduling, the Rangers havent started at home since goaltender Henrik Lundqvists third season. But thats in the past, and whether beginning a season away from home was good or bad for the club, the team is ready to turn the page and look to the future.Something I think our group really needs to focus on is this is a new year, Derek Stepan said to the Daily News on Wednesday. Were not gonna go back to seasons past. Weve done everything in seasons past: Weve had great starts; weve had terrible starts; weve made it deep in the playoffs; weve ended short in the playoffs. This is a new year. Were gonna try to avoid talking about years past, but if youre really talking about the feeling in this room, I think the biggest thing weve all been saying for weeks is we just want to get this season started.A new season brings new faces for both the Rangers and Islanders; Mika Zibanejad is the big name among those making their Rangers debut while high-price free-agent acquisition Andrew Ladd will play his first game for the Islanders. Left winger Jimmy Vesey, the prized college free agent many teams coveted, will make his NHL debut with the Rangers.Zibanejad was acquired from the Ottawa Senators during the offseason for fellow center Brassard and expects to find himself in high-leverage situations for his new club.When were up by one with two minutes left, one minute left, or were down by one and try to get a goal, I want to be out there for every different situation, Zibanejad told the Daily News. I think I got a taste of that last year and its something I want to evolve to a lot more this year.Ladd brings leadership, experience and a Stanley Cup to Brooklyn after signing a seven-year, $38.5 million deal with a team that lost key players Kyle Okposo and Frans Nielsen to free agency. The left winger is expected to start his Islanders career playing on a line with center John Tavares.With Tavares playing at the World Cup, Ladd didnt get much time in the preseason to work with him, so there could be an adjustment period for both players in the early going.(It) will be good just getting to know where Johnnys going to be, Ladd told Newsday. All players are different, especially offensively. Hes probably a guy who wants a little more space, take guys one-on-one in the corner, stuff like that. Just getting a feel for where hes going to be in certain situations and just have the ability to talk it out from there.The Rangers will be without defenseman Kevin Klein, who is out with a back strain.Islanders goaltender Jaroslav Halak is dealing with an illness and his status for the opener is up in the air. Center Anders Lee blocked a shot in practice Wednesday and he could miss the opener as well, although that has yet to be determined.Both the Rangers and Islanders have playoff aspirations in a very tough Metropolitan Division and even though its just the first of 82 games, its already two important points up for grabs. And if the Rangers want to erase the past, starting with a win against a team that beat them in all four meetings last season would go a long way toward changing the future.We all know that last year they had our number, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault told the Daily News. This season is a new season and I think everyones anxious to get going here. Air Max Tavas Homme . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Air Max 2018 Pas Cher . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. http://www.airmaxsoldeschaussures.fr/air-max-invigor-france/air-max-invigor-rouge.html . Irving scored 23 points, Tristan Thompson had 20 points and 10 rebounds and the Cavaliers beat the Denver Nuggets 117-109 on Friday night. RALEIGH, N.C. -- A federal judge has granted the NCAAs motion to dismiss the governing body from a lawsuit filed by two former North Carolina athletes seeking to hold it at least partly responsible for the schools long-running academic fraud scandal.In a ruling signed Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Loretta C. Biggs stated attorneys for former womens basketball player Rashanda McCants and ex-football player Devon Ramsay hadnt proved that the NCAA had a legal obligation to ensure the soundness of classes offered at UNC under state law.McCants and Ramsay filed their lawsuit in January 2015 months naming the NCAA and UNC as defendants, arguing that neither had done enough to ensure athletes receive a quality education while citing the scandal on the Chapel Hill campus as a result. The case against UNC is still pending.NCAA spokeswoman Emily James didnt immediately return an email for comment Friday afternoon.The lawsuit came two months after an independent probe conducted by former U.S. Justice Department official Kenneth Wainstein outlined nearly two decades of irregular courses featuring GPA-boosting grades in a department popular with athletes.The case led to questions from UNCs accreditation agency, which placed the school on a year of probation that expired in June. UNC also is currently facing five potentially top-level charges from the NCAA connected to the case.Biggs issued a stay on UNCs motion to dismiss, noting that another lawsuit filed by two former ex-UNC athletes is pending while the court determines whether the school is an arm of the state with sovereign immunity. That case was filed by former football player Michael McAdoo and former womens basketball player Kenya McBee.Biggs heard arguments and questioned attorneys in both cases during an all-day court session in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, in April.It would appear that what the Plaintiffs really seek is for the NCAA to do more, i.e., to undertake these tasks of oversight and ensuring the academic soundness of courses, Biggs wrote in Fridays order.One of the attorneys hanndling the McCants-Ramsay case is Michael Hausfeld, who represented former UCLA mens basketball standout Ed OBannon in an antitrust case against the NCAA. Air Max Bw Homme. Another is Robert F. Orr, a former North Carolina Supreme Court Justice who has become an advocate of NCAA reform.In a phone interview with The Associated Press, Orr said that attorneys would take some time digesting Biggs order to figure out whether to appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, located in Richmond, Virginia.We have to sit down and evaluate the chances of success and review the judges order to see what we disagree with other than the conclusions, Orr said.The case centers on independent study-style courses requiring a research paper or two in the formerly named African and Afro-American Studies (AFAM) department. Many were misidentified as lecture courses that didnt meet and were run by an office administrator, not a faculty member.Wainsteins probe estimated more than 3,100 students were affected between 1993 and 2011, with athletes across numerous sports making up roughly half the enrollments.Hausfeld had argued that athletes who took even one of the irregular courses had been defrauded, while noting the NCAA bore some oversight responsibility for academics in college sports.But Biggs writes the NCAAs public statements espousing aspirational goals regarding academics for athletes werent enough to trigger a legal duty to ensure the quality of courses. Biggs also dismisses claims of negligence, noting it would only apply to physical injury or property damage instead of purely economic damages according to state law.In addition, Biggs notes that broad, sweeping assertions in the lawsuit do little to support ... that the NCAA voluntarily assumed a duty of care to them.To the extent that Plaintiffs raise policy rather than legal issues for the Court to determine, Plaintiffs have chosen the wrong forum, the order states. 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 ' ' '
