While the NHL Players Association and executive director Donald Fehr said
Tuesday that the players are willing take a smaller percentage of revenues in a
new collective bargaining agreement, other details have emerged from the unions
proposal as well. Ray Lewis Black Jersey . According to TSN
hockey analyst Aaron Ward, the offer also calls for a limit on non-player
spending such as costs for head coaching, front office and management payrolls.
In addition, the unions proposal suggests – at the discretion of both the NHL
and NHLPA on a case-by-case basis – giving extra draft picks to teams in
financial trouble. The players offer also allows for franchises in distress
under special circumstances to be permitted to trade or sell up to $4 million in
cap space to another team – giving the team a way of adding another paycheque.
As presented by Fehr on Tuesday, the proposal already includes delinking the
salary cap from hockey-related revenue and setting a fixed rate – increasing by
two per cent for the first year, four per cent for the second and six per cent
for the third. Afterwards, the players would hold an option to have the fourth
year revert back to the current system, where they are entitled to receive 57
per cent of all revenues. By the NHLPAs calculations, the deal could see players
give up as much as US$465 million in revenue if the league continues to grow at
an average rate for the next three seasons. Haloti Ngata Elite Jersey . —Alex Gordon

. The team announced that the procedure was a success and that Perkins will miss
four to six weeks before returning to normal off-season activities. Perkins
partially tore the groin in Game 4 of the Thunders first-round playoff sweep of
Dallas, although Oklahoma City withheld the extent of his injury until after the
season. Anthony Allen Jersey . The Germans reached
the European Championship semifinals for a record seventh time by beating Greece
4-2 Friday in a match played amid the contentious political backdrop between the
countries. Ray Lewis Womens Jersey . “I feel the Wild
West would be more simplified than the world we live in now, when an employer
who makes billions of dollars and a league with record revenues can tell me that
I cant do the things that my heart tells me to do! All what my heart tells me to
do far surpasses what my body has endured,” said Barch, who signed a two-year,
$1. HAMILTON, Ont. —Scott Piercy is discovering that not everything you
dislike is bad for you. After two birdie-filled rounds at the RBC Canadian Open,
Piercy found himself holding a share of the midway lead with William McGirt. And
hed seen just about enough of Hamilton Golf and Country Club. “I will tell you
this golf course takes the juices out of it for me,” Piercy said Friday after he
and McGirt matched the tournaments 36-hole scoring record. It was an unexpected
comment from a player who has slept on a lead just six times in his PGA Tour
career—including twice this week. After matching Hamiltons course record with
an opening-round 62 on Thursday, Piercy followed it up with a 67 to join McGirt
(66) at 11-under 129. That was one shot better than Robert Garrigus (66), two
ahead of Bo Van Pelt (66) and three up on Vijay Singh (67), Tim Clark (62) and
Josh Teater (65). Piercy had a relatively easy time getting around the classic
H.S. Colt design over the first two days, but didnt like the path he had to
travel to do it. The tight, tree-lined layout demands precision off the tee and
often forces players to play it safe. “This golf is boring golf for me,” said
Piercy. “Im not going for it, Im not trying to put my foot on the accelerator.
Im kind of touch and go.” McGirt was in much better spirits than his fellow
co-leader after a round that included a 50-foot birdie putt from the fringe on
No. 8. The second-year tour player is chasing his first victory and hes anxious
to see how his game holds up over the pressure of the weekend. “There are still
36 holes left,” said McGirt. “There is a lot of golf left.” Even though none of
Fridays afternoon starters could match the score posted by Piercy and McGirt, a
handful of more experienced players started to make their presence felt on the
leaderboard. Van Pelt sent up a roar from the gallery after holing out from 143
yards for eagle on No. 9—his last of the day—while Clark reeled off six
birdies and added a holed-out eagle of his own to match the course record with a
62. “It was obviously a great day for me,” said Clark, a former winner on the
Canadian Tour. “Im excited. It is nice to be back up in Canada, I have some good
memories up here. The course suits me well, too, and Ive enjoyed playing.” Alsoo
lurking was Singh, who is looking for his first PGA Tour victory in four years.

. . Five Canadian players survived the cut led by
David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., who shot a second straight 68 and is seven shots
back. Matt McQuillan (67) of Kingston, Ont., amateur Albin Choi (68) of Toronto,
Graham DeLaet (69) of Weyburn, Sask., and Matt Hill (69) of Brights Grove, Ont.,
will also be around for the weekend. Hearn was left hoping the course would
start playing a bit tougher in the final two rounds. “I was steady again today,
I just didnt make quite as many birdies as I would have liked,” he said. “Im
certainly not out of reach for this tournament—guys are shooting 62s and 63s.
If I was to get hot tomorrow and put one of those in, you never know whatll
happen.” The week came to an abrupt end for British Open champion Ernie Els, who
earned loud cheers wherever he went but missed the cut with rounds of 72 and 70.
The South African was disappointed he couldnt reward the fans with a performance
like he put on at Royal Lytham & Ste. Annes last weekend. “Its unfortunate I
didnt have my game with me,” said Els. “Theres always next time.” The scoring
has been better at Hamilton than the last two times the Canadian Open was held
here. Rain left the greens soft and receptive, and gave players the opportunity
to lift, clean and place their balls in the fairway for both rounds. With more
rain expected early Saturday, a compressed third round will be played with
threesomes going off both tees. Even though Piercy hasnt found the course to his
liking so far, he acknowledged that a good showing could change his outlook on
the place. “If I win, Ill have a lot of fun,” said Piercy. “Hopefully the next
two days go well. ... Its fun at the end of the week when you put it together.”
Notes:@ Chez Reavie (2008) and Scott Dunlap (1996) were previously at 129 midway
through the Canadian Open … Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., will miss the
weekend at the event for the third straight year after consecutive 72s … Other
notables to miss the cut included Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, David Duval and Adam
Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., the low Canadian at the event the last two years …
The winners share of the US$5.2-million tournament will be $936,000. ’ ’ ’
