believed to be eager to make a move. T

    Trade discussions between NHL clubs are starting to pick up. David Ospina Jersey . The Detroit Red Wings are among the teams believed to be eager to make a move. The Wings need to create some cap space and sources say Jordin Tootoo is in play. Detroit would like to call up Gustav Nyquist from the AHL, but doesnt have the cap room to make it happen. Tootoo makes $1.9 million this season and is valued by some teams because of his grit. Also complicating things for Detroit from both a roster and cap standpoint is the potential return of injured forward Darren Helm. Helm is scheduled to come off of I.R. on Saturday. (He didnt skate today, so he may have other ailments hes dealing with, but, his 10-game, 24-day stint on I.R. ends on Saturday). Eyes on Liles Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs are willing to sweeten the pot to get John-Michael Liles back in the National Hockey League and off of the Leafs books. Toronto will retain a significant portion of Liless salary for the remainder of his contract to encourage a trade. Liles, currently with the AHLs Toronto Marlies, carries a $3.875 million cap hit through 2015-16. He has a modified no-trade clause, which includes a list of 12 teams, submitted during the summer, that he would accept a trade to. However, at this point, Liles is more than willing to consider all NHL interest. Recovery Mode Dustin Penner is resting, hoping the symptoms from his first NHL concussion wont sideline him for too long. Penner was knocked unconscious by a hit from Dallas Stars forward Ryan Garbutt in the second period of the Anaheim Ducks 6-3 win over the Stars on Sunday. No penalty was called on the play, however, Garbutt has been summoned by the NHLs Safety Department to an in-person discipline hearing, which allows league disciplinarian, Brendan Shanahan, the flexibility of suspending Garbutt for more than six games. In spite of his injury, Penner was quick to engage with those on twitter on Sunday night who viewed the hit as far less heinous. One tweet in particular from Penner (below) attached a video clip to emphasize referees Greg Kimmerly and Tim Peel missed the call: @Dustinpenner25: To whom it may vertical stripes.Orange horizontal stripe) Might of been 2 min minor?? Penner says the tweet was sent to embarrass the people on Twitter who assessed the hit as clean. Furthermore, Penner says players want NHL officials held accountable and the use of social media might help deliver that message. In this case, a mistake was made. Garbutt could have easily been called for charging after racing from the penalty box to make the hit on Penner, who clearly didnt see it coming. Kimmerly and Peel would have received a call from their supervisor to discuss the incident, either postgame or Monday morning, and both are likely appreciative supplemental discipline is an option the NHL uses regardless of the call on the ice. As for accountability, NHL officials are heavily scrutinized...just not publicly. These men are constantly called to discuss their performance and each official is graded over the course of the season, which heavily impacts playoff assignments and, ultimately, job security. As for Dustin Penners tweeting habits, hes one of the best and constantly uses twitter to connect with NHL fans. Also, this isnt the first time Penner responded to a thundering hit via twitter. During the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs, Penner was rocked by St Louis Blues forward T.J Oshie. Afterwards, Penner posted the following tweet, acknowledging the quality of the hit and teammate Mike Richardss role in the subsequent melee: @Dustinpenner25. Anybody catch the license plate of that Truck? #ithinkitstartswitha7. Wawawewa. #aliG Thanks @Mrichie_10 #thatsleadership Penner has a keen sense of humour, although theres nothing funny about the health issues hes dealing with now. Petr Cech Jersey . "Canada," Bolland said with a smile. "Is that a question?" One day earlier, though, fellow Toronto Maple Leafs centre Nazem Kadri wasnt so sure his home and native land could pull off the win against the United States in the semi-finals of the Olympic hockey tournament. Laurent Koscielny Jersey . Jones, from Winnipeg, built a 3-0 advantage after three ends by scoring two in the second and one in the third. Chinas skip Bingyu Wang cut that lead to 3-1 in the fourth before Canada added another three in the fifth for a 6-1 lead. JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Charl Schwartzel shot a 3-under 69 Saturday to take a one-shot lead into the final round of the South African Open, the season-opening event on the European Tour. Schwartzel moved to 15-under 201, with Morten Orum Madsen (69) and Marco Crespi (70) tied for second at Glendower Golf Club. South Africas Hennie Otto surged into fourth with a 65, another stroke behind on 13 under. Schwartzel has won just one European Tour title since clinching the Masters in 2011 and has never won his home open. He mixed five birdies with two bogeys to put himself in a good position to claim the first title on the 2014 Race to Dubai. "It was a bit up and down but I think I did what I needed to do," the South African said. "You always think some things could have been better." Madsen also had five birdies and two drops to sit one off the pace alongside Crespi. Mikel Arteta Jersey. Otto, the 2011 champion, fired the round of the day to put himself in contention on Sunday despite a triple bogey seven on the par-4 No. 9. Otto responded to that slip with seven birdies in his last eight holes to move into fourth. Italys Andrea Pavan and Spains Alejandro Canizares are tied for fifth on 11 under and Swedens Magnus Carlsson is a shot back in a tie for eighth. Two-time U.S. Open winner Retief Goosen is still just about in contention for a first tournament win since March 2009 after his 70 on Saturday. Goosen is six shots back on Schwartzel after lifting himself with five birdies on his second nine following three dropped shots going out. Former British Open champion David Duval of the United States and European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley of Ireland missed the cut. 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 ' ' '
