On Thursday, the NHL did not visit any discipline upon the Blackhawks' Duncan Keith for his elbow to the head of the Canucks' Daniel burberry ties Sedin one night earlier, but that doesn't mean the defenseman won't be iced sometime soon.
Especially given that Sedin was flown back to Vancouver on Thursday for additional tests, according to TSN, with RDS in Canada later reporting that the winger suffered a concussion and will be sidelined for two weeks.
With Sedin officially out, that could precipitate a suspension or fine for Keith, who received a minor penalty for the first-period hit on Wednesday night. The Hawks were off Thursday and don't play again until Sunday, so the NHL also might not be moving too hastily with some time for deliberation.
"I can't comment on those things," Keith said Wednesday after the game, when asked about possible league discipline. "I'm out there playing my game. I'm not trying to hurt anybody."
Scoring Shaw: Rookie Andrew Shaw's overtime winner against the Canucks made it four goals and six points in his last three games, though three of the scores arrived via redirections. Consider everyone, Shaw included, pleasantly surprised.
"It was always my game, gritty, go to the net, try to get a stick on it," Shaw said. "If you look at my stats burberry handbags outlet from my previous years, I was never really the goal scorer. But I can't complain, right? Things have been going pretty well for me."
Said Keith: "What's kind of underrated with him is his speed. Maybe he's not the smoothest skater, but he can get to places and get to the right areas."
It often happened to Doug Flutie when his Calgary Stampeders needed a quarterback sneak. Out of the game he went, and in came a strong and physical runner named Steve Taylor to gain that final yard. The switch prevented Flutie from absorbing some big hits, but it also had an unintended consequence.
“It ruins your rhythm — both of ours,” said Flutie, now a college football analyst for NBC Sports Network. “I always worried when Steve went in that he would fumble the snap. It’s not fair.”
It is also not difficult to imagine a situation similar to what Flutie experienced playing out this season for the Jets, whose daring trade for Tim Tebow diversified their offense but complicated the dynamic at their most important position: the quarterback who played in the playoffs last season (Tebow) will back up the quarterback who sputtered as his team collapsed (Mark Sanchez).
General Manager Mike Tannenbaum has stressed that Sanchez is, has been and will be the Jets’ starter. But speaking Thursday morning on the ESPN Radio program “Mike and Mike,” Tannenbaum hinted that if their traditional offense falters under Sanchez, they could incorporate more packages with Tebow. If that were to happen, Coach Rex Ryan would undoubtedly face a barrage of questions about whether burberry sneakers women to expand Tebow’s role, which, by extension, would diminish Sanchez’s.
The former N.F.L. quarterback Kurt Warner said the burden falls on the Jets’ coaching staff, particularly Ryan, to finesse what could turn into a predicament.
“We’ve seen the polarization of Tim in the way his fans have been bold and outspoken, with the billboards they put up around Denver and everything,” said Warner, now an analyst for NFL Network. “You just wonder how it’s going to play out.”
Sanchez seems to have as many detractors and supporters as Tebow, whose role has been clearly defined but amorphously described. The Jets will install a series of plays intended to use Tebow in several ways — short-yardage, red zone, Wildcat — and their ideal result would be for him to challenge Sanchez during practices and complement him during games. Warner said the Jets will not have to worry about Tebow’s complaining about his playing time or being anything less than a model teammate.
That was how Rich Gannon said he approached the controversy that erupted in Kansas City when he and Elvis Grbac played for the Chiefs in the late 1990s. It affected the locker room and divided the Chiefs’ fan base.
“When I got onto the field, whether I was working with the first or second team, I seized the opportunity,” said Gannon, now a SiriusXM NFL Radio host. “I didn’t care about the other guy, and you shouldn’t. It was my time to shine.”
In Warner’s only season in New York, in 2004, he led the Giants to a 5-4 record before he was replaced by Eli Manning. Warner said the decision Ray ban sunglasses created tension in the Giants’ locker room because the team was entrusting its playoff hopes to a rookie.
“At the end of the day, players want what’s best for the team, and they want what’s best for the team right now,” Warner said. “Not that they didn’t want Eli playing, but more that the timing just wasn’t right.”
At Warner’s next stop, in Arizona, he slid between starting and backing up Matt Leinart, and at one point, he said, his lone role was to operate the Cardinals’ no-huddle offense.
“People would say to me, ‘Why aren’t you in there more often?’ ” Warner said. “It’s a tough dynamic. It’s so much about winning, but it’s also holding onto the confidence of all the pieces of the puzzle.”
Gannon said he thought Sanchez could feel pressured by Tebow, wondering when Tebow will come in to replace him.
“I don’t think fans in New York are thinking that he’s going to be standing on the sideline wearing a baseball cap cheap burberry shoes 2012 and holding a clipboard,” Gannon said of Tebow. “He’s going to have a role.”
And he will. If the Jets had added any other backup quarterback with the intention of designing a specific package of plays for him, there would be little attention. Because it is Tebow, Gannon said it would be imperative www.egalass.com for Sanchez to play well immediately.
“All I can tell you,” Gannon said, “is that I’ve never been on a team with a little bit of controversy and it’s turned out well.”
