VANCOUVER - Backup quarterback Drew Tate scored on two one-yard touchdown runs as the Calgary Stampeders led the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 20-7 through three quarters of the 102nd Grey Cup. JaVale McGee Jersey .Calgary was up 17-7 at halftime and extended that lead to 13 points when Rene Parades kicked a 20-yard field goal with 4:20 left in the third quarter.Before that drive stalled, Stampeders No. 1 quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell completed 10 straight passes to tie for the third longest completion streak in Grey Cup history.The only other highlight of the quarter came when Hamilton defensive end Justin Hickman laid out Calgary punter Rob Maver on a return.Parades took over punting duties the rest of the way for Maver, who left with an injury to his abdomen.Calgary led 7-0 after the first quarter and doubled that lead when Tate scampered over the goal-line 48 seconds into the second to cap a 10-play, 66-yard drive led by Mitchell that was aided by a pass interference call in the end zone on Tiger-Cats defensive back Brandon Stewart.Hamilton had a chance to get on the board later in the quarter, but Justin Medlocks 26-yard field goal was blocked by Calgary defensive lineman Demonte Bolden.Parades then stretched the advantage to 17-0 with an 11-yard field goal at 12:43 after the ensuing Calgary drive of eight plays and 87 yards stalled deep in Hamilton territory.The Stampeders did a good job containing Tiger-Cats returner Brandon Banks in the first half, but the speedster got behind the Calgary defence for a 45-yard touchdown on a pass from Zach Collaros that cut the deficit to 17-7 with 1:21 left in the half.Tate came in for the short yardage plunge over the goal-line with 9:48 gone in the opening quarter to finish off a five-play, 55-yard drive that included a 28-yard pass from Mitchell to wide receiver Eric Rogers.Hamilton punted on its first four drives and were lucky the deficit wasnt any wider after running back Nic Grigsbys fumble was recovered by Tiger-Cats offensive lineman Brian Simmons for a 29-yard loss.At least two Calgary players had their hands on the ball before Simmons fell on it for Hamilton, which had just four net yards of offence in the quarter.Attendance at B.C. Place Stadium was 52,056 fans — 1,423 short of capacity.The Stampeders finished the regular season 15-3 before downing the Edmonton Eskimos in last weekends West Division final, while the Tiger-Cats topped the Montreal Alouettes to win the East following a 9-9 campaign.Hamilton lost last years Grey Cup to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina and have not won the big game since beating Calgary in Vancouver back in 1999.The Stampeders last won in 2008, but lost the 2012 final to the Toronto Argonauts. Golden State Warriors Jerseys . Heavily-criticized after allowing a dozen goals on 58 shots in two games in Boston, Luongo continued his dominance at home. Hes now allowed two goals in three home games in this series. Kevon Looney Jersey . The Maple Leafs handed their embattled head coach a two-year contract extension on Thursday, while at the same time announcing that assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon will not be back. http://www.nbawarriorsauthority.com/wilt-chamberlain-warriors-jersey-c-12/ . Cesar said the difficulties he went through after the 2010 World Cup helped him become "a better professional" and made him "more focused" on his career. He admitted that he took things for granted before the World Cup in South Africa, when he arrived considered the worlds top goalkeeper.While the results of this season are obviously disappointing for the Vancouver Canucks -- disappointing enough to cost GM Mike Gillis his job -- this isnt necessarily a team in a terrible position. In fact, with a few improvements, this could very well be a decent team over the next few seasons. I will go into more detail when digging into the Canucks Off-Season Game Plan, which will be coming earlier this year since they are part of the non-playoff contingent, there are some reasons to think this is a favourable situation for President of Hockey Operations Trevor Linden and whomever he selects to be the new general manager. This isnt to say everything is just fine, but there are teams in far worse situations than the Canucks. A look at some of the positives: Despite this season going off the rails, the Canucks ranked ninth in Fenwick Close, a measure of puck possession. Among the top dozen teams in that metric, only the Canucks and New Jersey Devils (who are an impossibly terrible 0-11 in shootouts) are not in playoff position. So why is that a positive? The Canucks arent going to the postseason, in large part, because theyve been terribly unlucky around the net. Their 7.2% even-strength shooting percentage is ranked 25th in the league this year after it was middle of the pack -- 15th (8.0%) and 14th (7.8%) -- in the previous two seasons. Its very difficult for a team to stray too far from the average over a longer period of time and while this doesnt mean the Canucks can just assume that they will score more next season, its pretty easy to forecast better luck for this group. As low as the team shooting percentage is at 5-on-5, having the likes of Alexandre Burrows, Chris Higgins, Ryan Kesler and both Sedins, their big minute forwards, all under 8.0% makes it likely that there will be some recovery towards more typical production, particularly because the Canucks top forwards still had strong seasons in terms of puck possession and as long as they are controlling play, the odds are in their favour that more pucks will end up in the oppositions net. Add a bona fide scorer to the mix and the odds of recovery would be even better. The Canucks have a solid group of defencemen. The top four of Dan Hamhuis, Kevin Bieksa, Alexander Edler and Jason Garrison is more than capable of anchoring a playoff team. Garrisons possession numbers took a dive this year but, on the whole, this group isnt a primary issue. Even better, they have relatively economical options Chris Tanev and Ryan Stanton to round out the top six. Tanev is also a viable candidate to move into the top four if one of those named above is convinced to waive a no-trade clause in order to upgrade elsewhere. There was a lot of talk around the trade deadline about Edler being available and, while it must be with the understanding that Edler was the unluckiest of Canucks blueliners this past season in terms of percentages going awry, he would be a top pair defenceman for quite a few teams and, since those arent made available often, he ought to bring a significant return. Also, as I noted on Twitter, the Canucks were on a 106-point pace through the first half of the season, but as January rolled around, they had some overlaapping injuries. Chris Mullin Jersey. At some point, it was either Edler, Burrows, Roberto Luongo and/or Henrik Sedin missing time and they didnt have the depth to make up for those absences. That lack of depth brings us to some of the concerns that the new management will need to address. One, their core is older. Among the top six forwards in average ice time, 28-year-old Mike Santorelli, an unrestricted free agent coming off shoulder surgery, is the only one that wont be 30 by the time next season starts. On defence, Edler (27) and Tanev (24) are younger, but Garrison turns 30 in November and Bieksa and Hamhuis are already beyond. This doesnt mean that the moment a player hits 30, that they cease to have value, but age makes professional athletes a declining asset at a certain point and, by age 30, the vast majority are declining assets and most of Vancouvers core is in that neighbourhood now. Their goaltending situation, not-so-long-ago enviably deep, is decidedly suspect. 26-year-old Eddie Lack has had an okay rookie season, though if he had played well in January (1-5-2, 2.95 GAA, .908 SV%), that might have prevented, or at least slowed, the teams fade from contention and then his first couple weeks following the Luongo trade (.882 SV% in 8 GP) were a little rough as well but, on the whole, Lack has given the Canucks more than they had any right to expect from him coming into the season. Lack has played well enough to have a shot at competing for the starting job next year, with a veteran added to the mix to provide stability. There are free agents ranging in experience (Ryan Miller, Jaroslav Halak, Jonas Hiller, Brian Elliott, Ray Emery, Thomas Greiss) or a trade option like James Reimer that could upgrade the position from its suddenly subpar standing and an above-average possession team with stable goaltending is most of the way towards the playoffs. There is also the matter of Ryan Kesler reportedly asking out of Vancouver prior to the trade deadline. If that holds true, then there would be at least one blockbuster move to take care of this summer, but Kesler recently indicated that he intends to return to Vancouver next season. Even if they are capable of returning to the playoffs in short order, and thats possible, the Canucks need to beef up their young talent throughout the organization so that, even if the Canucks arent necessarily Cup-bound in the next couple years, that they have enough to be competitive as the core moves on. Young roster wingers Nicklas Jensen and Zack Kassian still have some potential to explore but may not ultimately be top-six performers. Bo Horvat and Brendan Gaunce, first rounders the past two seasons, could provide solid two-way play when they are deemed ready to play, but the Canucks need more. These are the challenges that come with the job for anyone running a hockey team and, given the Canucks above-average core, they have some easier issues to deal with than some other non-playoff clubs that dont have that foundation in place.
