think those guys are ahead of the curve

Defenceman Andrei Markov would like to stay with the Montreal Canadiens past this season and is ready to start talking numbers. [url=]Dalvin Tomlinson Jersey[/url] . According to Dave Stubbs of The Montreal Gazette, preliminary talks have begun between Markov - an unrestricted free agent this summer - and general manager Marc Bergevin. "How long thats going to be, you never know," he told the newspaper on Monday. "Its not only my decision, (but) also management, the organization. Well see whats going to happen." The Gazette adds that while nothing is imminent, Markov is handling the negotiations himself after recently parting ways with his agent Don Meehan of Newport Sports. "Marc (Bergevin) is interested to talk to me but theres nothing specific now," he added. "There is nothing I can say right now." Markov is in the final season of the three-year, $17.25 million deal he signed in June of 2011. “Maybe Im going to sign another contract tomorrow. Maybe in another month. Well see,” he told The Gazette. “Id like to stay here for the rest of my career. You can see some players in their 40s who still play. I dont want to think that far. Whatever is going to happen tomorrow will happen tomorrow.” The 35-year-old has five goals and 24 points in 46 games with the Canadiens this season and is a plus-9. In 730 career NHL games, Markov has 96 goals and 423 points. Hes spent his entire NHL career in Montreal after being drafted 162nd overall by the Canadiens in 1998.

"Its way better than running gassers, thats for sure," the inside linebacker said Monday, when the Chargers started their third and final week of organized team activities, which are practices in shorts, jerseys and helmets.

He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B.OTTAWA - When opportunity knocks, Henry Burris says the Ottawa Redblacks must answer the call. The veteran quarterback says the CFL expansion team has often been its worst enemy this season with bad penalties and an inability to consistently convert scoring chances into touchdowns. A case in point was Ottawas 33-23 road loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday when the Redblacks put several solid drives together but either came away with no points or settled for field goals. Burris said Ottawa (1-3) must take advantage of whatever chances it gets Saturday night when it hosts the defending Grey Cup-champion Saskatchewan Roughriders (2-2) at TD Place Stadium. Catch the action live on TSN at at 7pm et/4pm pt. "Weve been able to get drives going against pretty much anybody weve played but weve found ways to shoot ourselves in the foot, whether its been mental errors, penalties or something like that," Burris told reporters Friday. "Those are things that are easily correctable but the problem is if you say theyre easily correctable then we cant have those mistakes happening over and over again. "When we have a chance to put the ball in the end zone, weve got to put seven points on the board, continually put the pressure on (the Riders) and make them one-dimensional." Saskatchewan (2-2) comes off an impressive 37-9 home win over Toronto, with Will Ford rushing for 113 yards and three TDs in his Riders debut. The defence also registered four sacks — including two by defensive lineman John Chick — and two interceptions. Chick has a CFL-high six sacks and Saskatchewan is second overall with 18, one behind league-leading Edmonton. But Burris said facing the Roughriders gives Ottawa the chance to not only prove itself against the defending champions but also make hay in the weak East Division. Ottawa is currently tied for first as Montreal, Toronto and Hamilton all have just one win on the season. The Alouettes host the Argos later Friday night so its likely at least one club will have two victories and Burris would like the Redblacks to keep pace. "Right now, it is what it is in the East," Burris said. "This would be a great game for us to get some momentum behind us ... and do something no other team in the East is trying to do right now and thats string together a win after a win. "This is a great opportunity to play against a team like Saskatchewan. It not only gives you a chance to make a statement to yourself as a team but your fans in the stands and also across the league.

In that game, Ottawa quarterback Kerry Joseph threw for 168 yards and a TD and ran for two more against a team that two years later hed lead to a Grey Cup title en route to being named the leagues outstanding player. The CFL suspended the Renegades following the 05 season due to financial instability. "I think thats going to be a challenge for us but I think its also exciting for the guys to play at a new stadium with a brand new team," Riders coach Corey Chamblin said of his teams Ottawa visit. "Its always new energy there and right now our record is clean there." Chamblin says its wrong to think of Ottawa as an expansion team because many of their players are CFL veterans. "It might be new in terms of facilities and all that but these players on that team, they know how to play in this league," Chamblin said. "I think those guys are ahead of the curve. "I think a lot of people thought theyd struggle in all three phases but I dont think theyve struggled at all. Theyve done a very good job of putting together a good team." Durant is looking forward to seeing how many of the Riders loyal fans make the trip to Ottawa. "I love night games, first and foremost, and being in a brand new stadium in that type of environment," he said. "Im really anxious to see what kind of green we can get." But the veteran quarterback also believes Ottawas defence is a very capable one especially under the watch of head coach Rick Campbell, the former Calgary Stampeders defensive co-ordinator. "I see a defence that flies around," he said. "Theyre very well coached ... so I know theyll be fundamentally sound. "Theyve got some good veteran players over there who played on other teams in the past. Theyre not bad at all." Veteran slotback Chris Getzlaf, a 31-year-old Regina native, returns after missing three games with a leg injury. "Its very important," Durant said of Getzlafs return. "Hes one of the better receivers in our league, not just Canadian, and hes had a lot of success. "Hes a guy who I know his body language and exactly where hes going to be." It will be an extended road trip for the Riders, wholl visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Thursday night.
