REGINA —The Saskatchewan government has spiked the city of Reginas request for
$230 million for a project that includes a new football stadium for the CFL
Roughriders. Andrew Luck Womens Jersey . But the province
said it will kick in up to 30 per cent for a new stadium to a maximum of $80
million. The government is also willing to finance a portion of the project in
the form of a loan “in a reasonable amount,” Ken Cheveldayoff, minister
responsible for the proposed facility, said Thursday. “Ive always believed that
there is a role for the provincial government here, that there is a public good
to be gained from a facility such as this,” Cheveldayoff said at the
legislature. “I think this amount is fair. Im very comfortable with it and Im
hoping that the city and the Riders see it the same way.” The province has
stipulated that the new stadium would have to be “roof-ready.” “There was a
concern that if we just went open-air and threw the idea of an enclosed facility
out, that maybe wed be preventing ourselves from looking at something in the
future,” said Cheveldayoff. “We dont want to be in a position five years from
now to say, well, you built it this way and theres no way that you can ever have
a roof enclosed or retractable. We want to have it in a way that at some point
in the future, if we do decide to go with a roof … we just want it able to
have that from an architectural and a structural standpoint.” The minister also
said it would be up to the city, the Riders and private-sector partners to come
up with the rest of the money. A smiling Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco said its $80
million more than the project had a day earlier. “Its safe to say that were just
about to score a touchdown,” said Fiacco. “Were going to continue to work with
our partners today and I would suggest to you that we want to have this thing
all wrapped up by the end of July.” Details will be provided down the road, he
said. Riders chairman of the board Roger Brandvold said the team will be “a cash
committer,” but not for the rest of the $230 million. “Our balance sheet doesnt
give us that kind of cash. But certainly the support that we have had from the
fans—Riders nation—were able to help out with some cash,” said Brandvold.
He also said the team doesnt anticipate huge increases to ticket prices to cover
the cost of a new stadium. There has long been talk about building a new home
for the Roughriders. Mosaic Stadium, with its bench-style seating, is
structurally sound but it is also one of the oldest buildings in the Canadian
Football League. It was originally built as a rugby field in 1910 and has been
renovated numerous times over the years. The team said in March 2010 that its
getting to the point where Mosaic will no longer be usable. The province punted
plans for a domed stadium last year due to a lack of federal funding and said it
would be up to the city to come up with a new proposal. The city pitched a plan
in April 2011 for a sports and entertainment complex, along with condos and
commercial space, to be built on a site currently occupied by Canadian Pacific
Railway Ltd. A neighbourhood with residential units would be built on the old
Mosaic Stadium site. That plan has since changed to an open-air stadium with the
capacity for 33,000 spectators. The city said executing the plan will require
public investments of $278.2 million for the new stadium. Construction would
begin in 2013, with completion in 2016. The new stadium would be located at
Evraz Place on a section of city-owned land near Mosaic Stadium. The stadium
would be owned by the city and operated by Evraz Place. Riders president and CEO
Jim Hopson said the funding announcement means a new stadium is one step closer.
“The mayor said were in the red zone. Were in the red zone,” said Hopson. “We
understand that theres been a lot of false steps and things happen, but weve
been working on this for five years. Over the last few weeks, the province, the
city and ourselves have been very engaged in discussions around the funding
model, the operation model. “I feel very good and the commitment of the province
has been very clear and the mayors very excited. Clearly the next few weeks will
be very important to us.” Cheveldayoff said the province wont be responsible if
there are any cost overruns and it wont provide any operating funding. Reggie

. The teams made it official on Tuesday night when the
NBA lifted the free agency signing moratorium. The Suns received first-round
picks in 2013 and 2015, and second-round selections in 2013 and 2014 for Nash,
an eight-time All-Star and two-time league MVP. Dwight Freeney Jersey . Sergei Kostitsyn
scored twice as the Canadiens won their season-high fifth straight by downing
the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Saturday night. http://www.cheapindianapoliscoltsjersey.com/pat-angerer-jerseys
. The 26-year-old ran away with the competition, scoring a total of 414.00—
34.80 points ahead of the second-place finisher. The resulting piece of hardware
marked the sixth of Wus Olympic career, and matched the record womens haul set
by Wus former diving partner, Guo Jingjing. Reggie Wayne Womens Jersey . The Malaga youth
player went on as a second-half substitute and moments after hitting the post he
knocked in a rebound of a shot by Diego Bounanotte in the 84th minute. The goal
made Olinga the youngest player to score in the Spanish league at 16 years, 3
months, 6 days. Andrew Luck Jersey .J. – The Devils believe
they can pull off the improbable.The Dallas Stars filled a need by dealing for a
scoring centre, giving up one of the games most effective agitators to get the
trade done. Numbers Game looks at the Stars getting Derek Roy while sending
Steve Ott to the Buffalo Sabres. The Stars Get: C Derek Roy. Roy, 29, was
scoring a point-per-game (35 in 35) in 2010-2011 before suffering a torn quad
muscle. While Roy stayed healthy last season, playing 80 games for the third
time in the past four seasons, he wasnt nearly as productive, finishing with 44
points, his lowest total in any season in which he played at least 70 games.
Nevertheless, it was also the fifth straight season in which Roy played at least
19 minutes per game and he faced high quality of competition on a nightly basis
as the centre for Buffalos number one line. Roy has one year remaining on his
current contract, at a cap hit of $4-million but an actual cost of $5.5-million,
after which he will become an unrestricted free agent. In Dallas, he should move
into the roster spot vacated by Mike Ribeiro, who was traded to Washington.
There may not seem to be much to choose between smallish skilled centres like
Ribeiro and Roy, Dallas might have more of a future with Roy, who is three years
younger and, prior to his 2011-2012 season, had gone five straight seasons with
at least 0.80 points per game and there are a total of 26 players leaguewide
that have at least .80 points in at least five of the last six seasons.  With
some better luck and a fresh start in Big D, Roy could return to a more familiar
scoring level. The Sabres Get: C Steve Ottt and D Adam Pardy.dddddddddddd One of
the games foremost agitators, 29-year-old Steve Ott is more than just a pest,
even if that is his calling card. There are two players that have at least 75
goals and 700 penalty minutes in the last five seasons and Ott is one of them
(Scott Hartnell is the other). Furthermore, in the last three seasons, Ott has
won 56.2% of his faceoffs. Ott played a career-high 18:21 per game last season,
which might be more than hes needed if all goes well in Buffalo, but Ott will
replace the grit that was lost when Paul Gaustad was traded to Nashville at the
trade deadline. Ott has two years, at a cap hit of $2.95-million per season
(with a real cost of $3.2-million per), left on his contract. 28-year-old
defenceman Adam Pardy was signed to a two-year, $4-million contract as a free
agent last summer and it was ill-advised before the ink had dried. Pardy
averaged a career-high 16:28 of ice time per game, but only dressed for 36
games. Pardy has good size and could fill a role as an extra defenceman, but
Buffalos current depth on the blueline also leaves the possibility that Pardy
could be an expensive AHLer. With Roy departing, Tyler Ennis becomes the solid
number one playmaker down the middle, but should also assure more offensive
opportunities for Cody Hodgson or, failing that, Luke Adam, as scoring centres
due to play more significant roles. Scott Cullen can be reached at
