    The Philadelphia Flyers are ramping up their efforts to find a suitor for centre Vincent Lecavalier. Miami Marlins Jerseys . TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported Thursday that Lecavaliers agent Kent Hughes has permission to speak to other teams regarding a trade for his client. Dreger adds that making a deal will be tough for the Flyers in the days leading up to July 1, as Lecavalier is owed a $2 million bonus on that date. Dreger reported earlier this month that Lecavalier was in play in the trade market, though he has a no-move clause in his contract. The 34-year-old scored 20 goals and added 17 assists with a minus-16 rating in his first season with the Flyers. Lecavalier spent the first 14 years of his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning before the club bought him out after the 2012-2013 season. The Flyers signed him to a five-year contract with an average annual value of $4.5 million. He has 403 goals and 508 assists for 911 points in 1106 career games with the Lightning and Flyers. Lecavalier won a Stanley Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004 and the Maurice Richard Trophy as the NHLs top goal scorer in 2007. Lecavalier was selected by the Lightning first overall in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Jeff Locke Jersey . Jim Leyland, in his eighth playoffs, has never had a starting rotation he trusts as much as the grouping of Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister. Jose Fernandez Jersey . With Van Osch out with a flu bug that has been rampaging through the tournament, Knezevic stepped in to lead B.C. (4-3) to a pair of victories on Tuesday before 1,131 at the Maurice Richard Arena.LAS VEGAS, Nev. - For some bettors, theres just not much value picking either the New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks in a Super Bowl that is a tossup almost everywhere in this gambling city.But betting on whether the Patriots run more plays than the number of shots Tiger Woods takes in the final round of the Phoenix Open? Now thats something both golf and football fans can enjoy putting a little action on.Proposition bets will be huge once again in Nevadas legal sports books, where bettors can wager on anything from the jersey number of the player who scores the first touchdown to how far the longest kickoff return will be (over/under is 28.5 yards).And, of course, the ever-popular bet on whether the first score of the game will be a safety. That one exploded on the bookies last year when the Seahawks scored a safety on Denvers first offensive play of the game.The game was five minutes old and we were already down $130,000, said Nick Bogdanovich, the oddsmaker for the William Hill US chain of sports books. That was a disaster.Not so much of a disaster, though, that the bookies didnt come back to score some big wins of their own. A Seattle blowout of the favoured Broncos helped legal sports books make nearly $20 million on record wagering of $119.4 million on the game.Bettors will win some of this years props, too, and in a game that is basically a tossup they might get more action than usual. William Hill lists 690 different prop bets, ranging from the mundane (total points scored, 48.5 over/under) to the more exotic (Number of goals in the Barcelona/Villarreal soccer match).Number of tackles by New Englands Devin McCourty? Theres a prop for that, with an over/under of four.Think Tom Brady will throw more touchdown passes than the Minnesota Wild scores goals on Sunday? Theres a prop for that, too, with the Wild a 3-2 favourite.Or, on the more esoteric side, how about the number of goals in the Worlds Mens Handball Championship in Qatar versus tthe total receiving yards by Seattles Doug Baldwin (11-10 odds, with handball minus 1. Chris Johnson Jersey. 5 goals)?A lot of people have to have action throughout the game, Bogdanovich said. As soon as the game starts theyre cashing tickets. Every five minutes theres a prop decided.So-called prop bets have proven lucrative in Nevadas legal sports books since their debut in the 1990s, and oddsmakers spend days following the conference championship games trying to come up with as many as they can. The only limit is Nevada betting regulations that restrict any sports book bets on things that actually happen on the field of play.That includes the opening coin flip, which can be bet even up with a bet of $102 for a $100 payoff at the Westgate LV Superbook. But the Nevada books cant offer the more bizarre bets put up by online books that include everything from the colour of Bill Belichicks hoodie (grey is a prohibitive favourite) to whether Katy Perry will wear a skirt/dress or pants during the halftime show (skirt/dress is a 4-5 favourite).Betting at the online books is illegal in the U.S., but that hasnt stopped online bookie Bovada from putting up those odds. Those who can bet at Bovada can also wager on whether Idina Menzel will forget or omit a word in the national anthem (6-1 odds against) or the number of times deflated balls will be referred to in the NBC broadcast (over/under is 2.5).For the prop bets you can legally wager on, though, the safety (1-7 against and 5-1 in favour) will almost surely be the most popular. Thats after bookies took a beating in the past two Super Bowls, where the safety was the last score in one game and the first in the other.Im not going to say its a sore subject with us but it has become the most bet prop on the board, said the Westgates Jay Kornegay. Its guaranteed were going to have some liability attached to that one come the day of the game.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://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 ' ' '
