SOUTHAMPTON, England - Barely two weeks after helping Canadas hockey team win a gold medal at the Sochi Olympics, Ralph Krueger has been hired as chairman of English Premier League club Southampton. Krueger played professional ice hockey in Germany before coaching Switzerlands national team and the Edmonton Oilers in the NHL. He was a consultant with Canadas mens team in Sochi. Known for his skills as a motivational speaker, the 54-year-old Krueger joins Southamptons reshaped management structure and fills the hole left by the departure of Nicola Cortese as Southamptons executive chairman in January. Krueger, who has been a member of the World Economic Forum since 2011, says in a Southampton statement released Wednesday that "although there is a solid foundation in place, the club still has tremendous untapped commercial potential."

Zapatillas Baratas Outlet . PAUL, Minn. Zapatillas Baratas España .ca. Hi Mr. Fraser, When I was watching the Heritage Classic in Vancouver there was a play midway through the third where Ottawa crashed the Canucks net and it came off its moorings.Thumbs up to Canada… well, of course. Specifically, thumbs up to the Canadian-based teams in the NHL, or at least most of them. If the Stanley Cup playoffs began immediately, five of the seven Canadian-based teams would qualify. But, OK, the playoffs dont start until April. Still, five - even in mid-December - is a big jump from one last season. The Montreal Canadiens had the playoff spotlight all to themselves in the 2013-14 playoffs, and they held our interest for three rounds. It would be nice if they had some company this time and Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg and Toronto offer such hope. Which brings us to Ottawa and Edmonton, and to doubts that the number of Canadas playoff teams could rise above five. In case youre wondering if the Stanley Cup playoffs have ever featured seven teams from Canada, the answer is yes. The history lesson takes us back to 1986, when Montreal beat Calgary in the Stanley Cup final. Toronto and Vancouver were also playoff teams, and for the first time together, all three Canadian teams that had come from the WHA - Edmonton, Quebec and Winnipeg - made the playoffs. So cmon, Senators and Oilers, how about seven again… One of these years? Thumbs up to Jaromir Jagr… well, of course. SSpecifically, thumbs up to the 42-year-old future Hall of Famer who recently played the 1,500th game of his career - no other active NHLer has played 1,400.dddddddddddd Jagr has scored 710 goals. No other active NHL player has scored 600. Jagrs assist total is 1062. No other player in the league today has reached the 900 mark. And Jagrs point total now sits at 1,772, fifth on the all-time list, and 552 points more than his nearest current rival, Joe Thornton. 552 is a career total never attained by a lot of good NHL players. Whats my point in listing Jagrs statistical accomplishments? Im afraid he might not get a chance to add to his playoff totals, and he needs just one more point for 200, a milestone only ever reached by four members of the Edmonton Oilers dynasty; Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri and Glenn Anderson. Maybe theres no reason to think Jagr is considering retirement, maybe the New Jersey Devils can sneak into the playoffs, and if thats not likely, maybe theyll trade Jagr at the deadline. He has never missed the playoffs two years in a row, so I hope that doesnt happen this season and I hope his last NHL game - whenever he plays it and whatever uniform hes wearing - is a playoff game.
