With training camp just three weeks away, John Tortorella has kept the lines of communication open with his No. Santiago Casilla Jersey . 1 goaltender and knows hes ready to report. In an interview with The Vancouver Sun on Wednesday, the Vancouver Canucks head coach said hes been in constant contact with Roberto Luongo and added that the veteran netminder just wants to focus on what has to be done on the ice. "I dont want to get into specifics, but I have talked to Roberto four times," he told the paper. "In fact, I just talked to him yesterday. Ill tell you, from talking with him he has told me he is working very hard as far as conditioning and getting ready for this season. "He knows there is a lot of talk and probably a lot of questions coming his way with how it all unfolded here. I think hes prepared for that and the bottom line is he told me I just want to play." The Canucks raised plenty of eyebrows at the NHL Draft when general manager Mike Gillis dealt away presumed No. 1 goaltender Cory Schneider instead of Luongo. The deal - done with the New Jersey Devils - netted the Canucks the ninth overall pick (Bo Horvat) and handed the net firmly back over to Luongo for the foreseeable future. Since the trade was made, Luongo has kept quiet regarding his relationship with the Canucks. He did however, hire Pat Brisson of CAA Sports, who told TSN last month that Luongo would report to training camp. "I think that is the most important thing, if there is some conflict or you are unhappy about certain things, the bottom line is and he understands it, is that he is playing for his teammates," added Tortorella. "Those are the most important people. "I have done a lot of talking to people who have coached him and know him and there is just tremendous support for what kind of pro he is. You dont have to be happy about a lot of different things. You can be really happy about this, unhappy about that, as long as you are ready to play. I think he gets that. So I am really excited about where he is mentally." Khris Davis Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Kendall Graveman Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. http:///...eggie-jackson-jersey . The 18-year-old American had five birdies in her bogey-free round for a 17-under total of 196. Lee held the overnight lead but mixed three birdies with two bogeys for a 70. St Kilda coach Alan Richardson admits he was frustrated by parts of his sides scrappy win over Richmond, which was soured by another serious injury to luckless spearhead Paddy McCartin.The Tigers overcame a diabolical first half to outscore the Saints in the second, but Richardsons side clawed their way to a 7.13 (55) to 6.10 (46) win on Saturday afternoon at the MCG.McCartins troubled season, that has included three concussions, is over after he suffered a broken collarbone in the first quarter.The 20-year-old received a free kick after crashing into the legs of Tigers defender Nick Vlastuin, then left the ground clutching his right shoulder after kicking his second goal.The former No.1 draft pick has managed just 17 games in his first two seasons.Hes had a luckless run on the back of putting his in the hole for his team and his teammates, Richardson said.Hes a courageous kid, hes a tough kid, so that earns respect ... (but) its bloody disappointing for him.In perfect conditions, the listless Tigers managed just two goals in the first half.The Saints went inside their forward 50 28 times to 12, but spurned several scoring opportunities and should have led by more than 21 points at halftime.There were moments in the game that were frustrating ... probably more so in the first half, Richardson said.To be so dominant in terms of ffield position, entries and opportunities to score and whilst we had a reasonable break (at halftime), it didnt quite reflect the dominance in our performance. Cheap Athletics Jerseys. ichardson took comfort from his sides hard work defensively, restricting the Tigers to just four goals until the last minute of the match.Richmond attacked the contest with greater vigour after the restart, but still trailed by 13 points at the last change.St Kilda didnt manage a goal in the third term, but majors to Nick Riewoldt and Jack Billings were enough to seal the Saints 11th win of the season.Not one of the better games of footy weve seen, it would be fair to say, Tigers coach Damien Hardwick said as he sat down to his post-match media conference.We thought our intensity and effort was off ... to come out and start like we did was disappointing.But we spoke to them at halftime and were pretty firm in that we needed to respond and get our game going.Seb Ross and Leigh Montagna were the main ball winners for St Kilda, with 34 and 33 possessions, respectively, and Tim Membrey and McCartin kicked two goals each.Dustin Martin and Trent Cotchin led the way for the Tigers, whose only multiple goal-scorer was Daniel Rioli with two. 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 ' ' '
