One week ago, Paul MacLean put together a brand new line with Curtis Lazar in between Mike Hoffman and Mark Stone. Instantly, the line had chemistry -- and an easy nickname. We were a line together for like 10 minutes and Twitter had already dubbed us The Kid Line, Lazar told me this morning. I guess the generic name for us right now is The Kid Line. Well see what sticks here. We are playing well together, so we will see what happen. Lazar using the word generic to describe the lines nickname is pretty accurate because nobody has put any thought into finding a more creative name. Any time three young players are put together on a unit, they get dubbed The Kid Line. In fact, the Kid Line has been so overused that it actually has its own Wikipedia entry. The page points out that the name originated with the Toronto Maple Leafs of the 1930s, who had a line with Busher Jackson, Charlie Conacher and Joe Primeau. The Kid Line was later used to describe the Edmonton Oilers trio of Martin Gelinas, Adam Graves and Joe Murphy in their run to the Stanley Cup in 1990. Its also been used more recently to describe the Habs line of Galchenyuk, Gallagher and Eller -- and just about any combination of the Edmonton Oilers current top-six. Mark Stone told me he doesnt have a big issue with the fact his line has been given such a generic name. Whatever people want to call us is fine by me. Its just cool to have a name I guess, he said. I guess we are all pretty young, but its tough to come up with a different name on the spot. I even canvassed some other teammates for ideas today and came up empty. Mark Borowiecki says he grew up watching The Pizza Line of Alfredsson, Spezza and Heatley - named because fans would get a free slice of pizza each time the club scored five goals on home ice. We even chatted about how that line was also referred to as The Cash Line - for Captain Alfredsson, Spezza and Heatley. While that line had two potential names, Borowiecki was at a loss to come up with an alternative to The Kid Line. Mika Zibanejad put some thought into this matter this morning, but also came up empty handed. Zibanejad currently centres Alex Chiasson and Milan Michalek - the only line on this team that does have a quasi-nickname right now. I know they call us the Nines Line because we have that number on our jerseys, but I cant even think of another connection for those young guys, said Zibabejad - who also pointed out hes trying to make Lazars new nickname Wonderboy. Mike Hoffman did offer up one alternative name. Maybe we could go with The Rookie Line, since we are all starting in this league, Hoffman suggested this morning. But the main thing is that you just find guys that you enjoy playing with and work well together with. If we are young guys or older guys, it doesnt matter. At the end of the day, you just want to see your team win. The problem with The Rookie Line is what do you call them if they are together next season? Of course, this could also be a moot point if Paul MacLean - who has a penchant for juggling lines - decides to break up this trio in the near future. All three players told me they have never been part of a line that had a nickname before - whether it was in pee-wee, juniors or the AHL. And it doesnt sound like they are resigned to the Kid Line moniker, as they are open to any suggestions that are out there. We have been trying to come up with something. Ive been trying to come up with clever stuff, but nothing comes to mind, Lazar said. Sean Davis Steelers Jersey . - Free agent defensive end Will Smith has signed with the New England Patriots. Jon Bostic Steelers Jersey . There was little fanfare, though, when the Yankees captain was taken out of his final regular-season Subway Series game in the eighth inning.

Sources tell TSN that union executives travelled to select CFL cities Monday to open dialogue with players and answer questions. After the tentative deal was reached Saturday night, several players posted messages of frustration and disappointment on social media - and that carried over into Sunday on both the web and the field.

Traditional contenders Brazil, Greece and Turkey drew the other three spots to complete the 24-team field for this summers tournament in Spain, basketball governing body FIBA announced Saturday at its meeting in Barcelona. Terrell Edmunds Jersey . -- Olympic medallist Jennifer Abel of Laval, Que.Mike Morreales run as the head of the CFLPA could come to an end on Friday. With the players association in the midst of meetings in Las Vegas, a vote will be held on Friday to decide the CFLPAs presidency and other executive positions. Morreale, who assumed office in 2012, is being opposed by current Montreal Alouettes offensive lineman Scott Flory. Over a dozen player representatives are expected to cast ballots on Friday in what could end up greatly shapping the upcoming labour negotiations.dddddddddddd The CFL and CFLPAs current CBA expires just before the start of the 2014 season, set to begin on June 26. The Hamilton Spectator reports that a key issue that the players will fight for in upcoming negotiations is a link between revenue and the salary cap, similar to what exists in the NHL. This had existed in previous CBAs, but was conceded by the CFLPA in the last agreement signed in 2010.
