    1. Omar Infante Jersey . Who hates the quiz most of all? A. John Tortorella B. Bob McKenzie C. You on a slow news weekQM: Its a dead heat between Torts and Bob. 2. What is the best team that Canada has ever assembled? A. 2014 Sochi Olympics B. 1987 Canada Cup C. 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics D. 1972 Summit SeriesQM: Im going off the board and going with Team Canada 76, featuring 16 Hall of Famers and among them the incomparable Bobby Orr in his last hurrah. It was the final meaningful hockey of his career. Orr was named Canada Cup MVP amidst controversy when teammate Denis Potvin said he deserved the honour. The series had everything, including a memorable conclusion when Darryl Sittler executed a delay move in overtime to outwait Czech goalie Vladimir Dzurilla and score the championship goal.Courtesy of HHOF.com 3. What is the biggest advantage to being the Quizmaster?QM: Asking questions is easier than answering them. 4. Who should win the Jack Adams this year? A. Patrick Roy B. Jon Cooper C. Claude Julien D. Mike BabcockQM: Im troubled by an obvious bias towards new coaches. Six of the last seven winners have been coaches in their first or second years with new teams. Obviously, their teams are starting from deficit positions - otherwise they wouldnt be new or newish hires. Too much is made of big improvements. It defies logic that, say, Roy, for all he has accomplished, has done a better coaching job in his very first NHL year than, Cup (and Olympic Gold Medal-winning)-champion coaches Julien or Babcock, who have wrung superlative results out of teams they have long coached. Now, with that all being said, Roys team DID challenge for first overall, so by any measure he has to be considered among the very best. But to be true to my thinking, Julien is my pick. 5. What was the best NHL team ever assembled? A. 83-84 Edmonton Oilers B. 81-82 New York Islanders C. 76-77 Montreal Canadiens D. 96-97 Detroit Red WingsQM: Going off the board again and going with Frank Selke Sr., who called the 1959-60 Canadiens the best of the Montreal teams that won five-straight Cup championships. Eight straight victories in the playoffs. Beliveau, Pocket Rocket, Rocket, Boom-Boom, Moore, Harvey, Johnson, Plante. Nuff said. A historical footnote: Plante wore a mask for the first time in a game in 1959-60.Courtesy: Canadiens.com 6. What is the most memorable sporting event that you have attended?QM: Game 2 of the 1972 Summit Series, coming on the heels of a 7-3 loss to the Soviets in Game 1. I had first row greens at Maple Leaf Gardens. Sitting at the end Peter Mahovlich scored one of the most memorable(shorthanded) goals I have ever witnessed. Canada won 4-1 and a country exhaled.Courtesy: Montreal Gazette 7. When did you become a "master?"QM: I became a hockey master at age eight when I collected my first hockey card set. It was the 1965-66 Topps series. I collected the set the old fashioned way: I earned it, winning most of them by playing/shooting cards. Closies, knock downs, put-ups, cover-ups. I still have the set; the corners are all beaten up because we played the games on asphalt driveways in Chateauguay, a Montreal superb. 8. Which is the best arena in history? A. Maple Leaf Gardens B. Montreal Forum C. Detroit Olympia D. Chicago StadiumQM: Boston Gah-den. It was the closest thing we will ever know to a living and breathing hockey building.Courtesy: Boston.com 9. Will you ever reveal your secret identity?QM: Theres a reason they call them secret identities. 10. Which city will be the next to get an NHL team? A. Quebec City B. Seattle C. Las Vegas D. A second team in TorontoQM: Seattle fulfills a geographical imperative. Quebec City fulfills an emotional imperative. Seattle = more money. Seattle. 11. Can you go BarDown?QM: If you watched me in the Queensway Canadians Old-Timers League, you would know the answer to that question. I spent a summer shooting pucks in my garage three years ago, determined to finally develop a shot. No shot. Custom Detroit Tigers Jersey . If Vettel wins at Suzuka on Sunday, and his nearest rival Fernando Alonso finishes worse than eighth, the German driver will join his compatriot Michael Schumacher and Argentine Juan-Manuel Fangio as the only men to win four consecutive titles. Miguel Cabrera Jersey . - After spending the morning in the hospital, Logan Couture gave the San Jose Sharks the spark they needed.CUIABA, Brazil -- Chile capitalized on a sluggish start by Australia to earn a 3-1 win in their World Cup opener on Friday, with Alexis Sanchez carrying over his prolific form for Barcelona with a goal and assist for the dangerous tournament outsiders. Sanchez -- a potential star of the World Cup -- poked home from close range in the 12th minute, before setting up Jorge Valdivia barely a minute later for the playmaker to finish from the edge of the area. A young Australia team, written off by most before a ball had been kicked, looked in danger of falling apart but the experienced Tim Cahill brought them back into the game with a trademark header in the 35th. Cahill, dominant in the air throughout, had several chances to equalize before and after halftime as Chile slipped off the pace in muggy conditions in Cuiaba. But a drilled, low shot by substitute Jean Beausejour settled the match in the second minute of injury time, sending the Chilean bench running onto the pitch and making fans set off fireworks. Chile moved level with Netherlands, which thrashed Spain 5-1 earlier Friday, and has a chance to eliminate the reigning champions when they meet in their next Group B game on Wednesday. "They have a superlative history in (major tournaments) so we definitely will have to play better than we did today," Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli said. "It will certainly be an electrifying game." Boasting its best ever squad for a World Cup, Chile has been strongly tipped by many -- including Pele -- to go far in Brazil despite being thrown in the same group as two of Europes top teams. And the Spanish, ripped apart by the Dutch in Salvador, will not be relishing playing Sampaolis side with their title defence on the line. Especially with Sanchez in this formm. Alan Trammell Tigers Jersey. The 25-year-old forward is coming off his best season at Camp Nou -- having scored 21 goals, 19 in the league -- and he was too much for a flimsy Australia defence in the first half. Sanchez was on hand to guide in a close-range finish inside the near post after Australia captain Mile Jedinak failed to head clear Charles Aranguizs cross. The celebrations had hardly died down when Sanchez span his marker and laid the ball across for Valdivia to finish high into the net from 20 yards (meters). "Early on, we were probably just overawed by the whole thing," Australia coach Ange Postecoglou said. "In the end, we gave away a two-goal start and thats what killed us." It was already looking like a damage-limitation exercise for the beleaguered Socceroos, the lowest-ranked nation in Brazil. The raucous Chilean fans were regaling their teams crisp passing with chants "Ole" and a no-look backheel from Sanchez highlighted his confidence. But Chiles momentum was punctured when Cahill, renowned for his tremendous jumping ability, leapt above diminutive marker Gary Medel to thump home a header from a right-wing cross. He had a header ruled out for a marginal offside and squandered other chances before Beausejour ended Australias hopes of a comeback. "They got in twice," Cahill said. "(But) after that you could see their legs were going. We knew we could get something out of this game. We stood up strong. Its just unfortunate, not a lot went our way tonight, and it showed." Capping a satisfying night overall for Chile was the sight of star midfielder Arturo Vidal starting and playing 59 minutes on his return from knee surgery. "He was very good," Sampaoli. "His knee is good." 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 ' ' '
