That desire he has will Antworten

CALGARY -- Jonathan Toews was the second youngest member of the gold medal-winning 2010 Canadian Olympic team. Discount Nike Tanjun . At 21-years-old, approaching one of the most pressure-infused tournaments in the nations history, the nerves were, as one would expect, biting hard at an early practice for that squad. "I wasnt catching passes too well," Toews reflected with a growing laugh as Hockey Canadas three-day orientation camp rolled on Monday morning with a unique ball hockey walk-through. "Just the little things that should be easy; I was kind of over-thinking it." The Canadian squad in Vancouver had a distinctive sage veteran feel about it. Only 20-year-old Drew Doughty was younger than the seemingly unflappable Toews. Those two were joined in an exclusive pocket of youth by the nations eventual hero Sidney Crosby (also 21). That will likely change in 2014. Just as the NHL has been increasingly overrun by a pack of rabblerousing youth, so too will the band that represents Canada in Sochi. Gone from 2010 will be a future Hall of Fame class fronted by Chris Pronger and Scott Niedermayer, the pair likely to be joined on the outside by an aging group that could include Brenden Morrow, Jarome Iginla, Dany Heatley, Patrick Marleau and perhaps Martin Brodeur, Joe Thornton and even Dan Boyle. Forcing their way into the mix this winter will be a fresh wave of Canadian talent, most prominently among them 23-year-old Steven Stamkos and 22-year-old John Tavares. "I think if you probably look over the past five years, the guys that have come into the league, the impact theyve had, you maybe didnt see that 10, 15 years ago," Stamkos, already a two-time scoring champ, told "Thats just the way the games going. "The Hockey Canada staff are looking to take the best players available regardless of age. It just so happens this year theres a lot more younger players. Not often do you win a gold medal and four years later have only a handful of guys that were on that team. I think its a good thing for Canada and its an exciting thing for me as one of the young guys to be here." Tavares was still an NHL rookie in 2010, but made it a goal four years down the road to have his name in the competition for Sochi. "…knowing [it was] four years from then I thought itd give me a lot of time to develop my game and keep getting better and improve and get on Team Canadas radar," he said. Busting out with 28 goals and 47 points in 48 games in 2013 after 31 and 81 a year prior, Tavares is now atop the radar for Steve Yzerman and the Hockey Canada brass. The face of the Islanders franchise points to a revved up process of development as the primary reason for the insurgence of youthful talent. "The development is so much greater and theres so much more exposure and more importance [placed] on things like nutrition and off-ice training," Tavares explained, "and that really wasnt there even 15, 20 years ago. It makes a big difference for a lot of us young guys when youre exposed to it all and you can see what it takes and you have a better understanding of what it is to be an impact [player] earlier in your career. "Whether me, Steven, Taylor Hall, Matt Duchene, all these guys, I think were talented hockey players and were driven to be great players and want to succeed and want to be a part of stuff like this. I dont think you want to let your age hold you back, you want to take advantage of every opportunity you can." "For me, having played in the NHL for five years now and gone through a playoff run and played in numerous world championships, you start to feel more comfortable in situations like this," Stamkos added. Hockey Canada selected 47 players for this late August camp, a group that was peppered with waves of talent poised to contribute not only now but in the years to come. Taylor Hall (21), Jordan Eberle (23), Matt Duchene (22), Alex Pietrangelo (23), P.K. Subban (24) and Logan Couture (24), represent the present and future of Canadian Hockey. Theres no reason that one or perhaps a handful wont be able to contribute as early as 2014. As Toews demonstrated with an increasingly dominant performance in 2010 – leading the team with eight points – age often proves just a number. "I was just looking to prove myself and I was confident that I was going to have a great season and play my way onto that team," the Blackhawks captain said of the lead-up to Vancouver, noting the expanded presence he eventually earned at the Games. "I dont think you can let what others think or what they say about you worry you too much, its all about what you believe. It sounds pretty cheesy, but I guess its kind of the way you go about it. Im sure theres some young guys here too that maybe all the media and all the people dont think that right now theyre on paper [to make the team] … but if they play their way onto the team so be it. We want the guys that are really going and really want to be in that situation." Youth be damned. White Nike Tanjun . Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. Nike Tanjun Clearance .

McEnroe Group Andy Murray Stan Wawrinka Kei Nishikori Marin Cilic Most exciting match-up? Barry - Murray v WawrinkaTwo players that have shown this year that they can win Slams, but Stan is the wildcard. No one really knows how hes going to play. He could come out and play unbelievable tennis but it was my fear this match could happen.Petch - Murray v NishikoriI think Nishikori, certainly at the US Open this year, had a couple of twists, serving and volleying a bit. Hes definitely trying to protect his serve a bit better this year against obviously great returners. Hes a great returner himself which is why I kind of like the match-up. Theres going to be a lot of opportunities for both players to break serve and its just a question of who can play the big points well. Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 13, 2016, 12:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Annabel - Murray v WawrinkaStan is always unpredictable, always dangerous and obviously shocked everyone like he always does to win the US Open. Every Slam that hes won, he crept through the draw and then suddenly he wins it. Hes probably going to be quite fresh and hungry. I think he hasnt played his best tennis leading into it necessarily, but I just think for me that match stands out.Who is the dark horse? Barry - Im not sure there is oneI think every possible scenario could happen in that group because youve got Cilic, in great form, youve got Nishikori as Petch said, in great form. Youve got Stan, who beat Murray a couple of years ago, and youve got Andy in the form of his life. All those four guys are going to have to play an 8 out of 10 or a 9 out of 10. If they dont, theyre behind.Petch - Marin CilicHes a guy with his serve that can take the racket out of the hand. The other ones you feel have got some play on the ball, whereas Marin - if he serves well, as we saw at the US Open in 2014 - actually is unplayable. Hes the guy people feel is possibly not going to get through that group, but is equally as dangerous as everyone else. And hes confident. Live Tennis: ATP World Tour Finals November 13, 2016, 6:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Annabel - Marin CilicThe last few matches Ive seen him play, his level has been extremely high apart from the last match in Paris when he suddenly ran out of steam against John Isner. But the improvements have been huge. He just moves better, hes more consistent from the back, hes extremely aggressive. He just seems more self-confident as well.Who wins the Group? Barry - Andy MurrayI think he will win it with two wins.Petch - Andy MurrayI think he will win the group, yep.Annabel - Andy MurrayIts impossible not to say Andy. With the form that hes in, you feel hes a level above everyone else at the moment.Who will go through as runner-up? Barry - Kei NishikoriTheres no method in that pick. Its just a gut feeling. I think hes a little bit more reliable than the other two, although if Wawrinka plays his best tennis, then he comes through that group, but thats a big if.Petch - Stan WawrinkaTheres no science, theres no stat, theres no form guide that can lead you to knowing wwhat is going to happen between those three guys. Nike Tanjun For Sale. I feel that Stan is due a big week again and I think he will want to finish this year strongly. Roger Federer is not about due to injury so Swiss eyes are all on him solely and I think he will be motivated to put in a great week.Annabel - Stan WawrinkaIts impossible to say. You dont know what mood Stan is going to be in. But Im going for him because hes so unpredictable. Lendl Group Novak Djokovic Milos Raonic Gael Monfils Dominic Thiem Most exciting match-up? Barry - Djokovic v MonfilsI saw Djokovic and Thiem play in Miami and although that was straight sets, it was one of the best couple of sets I saw all year actually, where Thiem showed how dangerous he can be. But he has really struggled recently so I would say Djokovic and Monfils. I think the Frenchman will be a great addition this year. He has the personality to be able to perform and has the game to be able to perform.Petch - Djokovic v MonfilsGoing on head to heads, the most interesting match-up will be one which Novak is not involved in. Given his dominant head-to-head record against everyone else in the group, he should feel very good about things and that should give him a lift coming in here. Im definitely looking forward to Novak against Gael, if Gael is fit and healthy. I think he certainly has become more consistent, so I think it will be the match that everyone will remember.Annabel - Djokovic v MonfilsI think this match because of what happened at the US Open. It was such an extraordinary match in terms of the goings on - it was just bizarre. He was trying to physiologically get into his head and he did. A lot of what he did, did have an impact.Who is the dark horse? Barry - Gael MonfilsMonfils for me, definitely. I just think with what happened with Milos pulling out in the semis at the Paris Masters, and although he played well last week, I think he was won five and lost five out of his previous 10 matches, so Im going to Gael.Petch - Dominic ThiemI do feel as though he has the fire power and foot speed to hurt players. He needs to serve big, rather than kick it in. He needs to use that first serve that he has. But if he can do all the things that hes shown, he can do this year, effectively, then I like his chances.Annabel - Gael MonfilsMonfils is a scary athlete. Out of all of the players he is the quickest and I think theyre all intimidated by his athletic ability and that serve. Everything seems to be coming together under coach Mikael Tillstrom. Hes the first coach thats been able to harness the talent and rawness, but still allow a bit of that flair to flourish, but also making him more consistent as well.Who wins the Group? Barry - Novak DjokovicI think he will win all three matches. I saw enough from him last week and I dont think his best tennis is too far around the corner.Petch - Novak DjokovicAnnabel - Novak DjokovicHe has a great record against all of them.Who will go through as runner-up? Barry - Gael MonfilsPetch - Gael MonfilsAnnabel - Milos RaonicI would say Raonic if he is completely fit. Other than that, I do think Monfils has a chance. Hell be a real crowd pleaser and serious entertainer.Who will win the ATP World Tour Finals? Barry - Novak DjokovicWhat swung it for me was actually the order of play and the fact that Djokovic is going to play on the first day means that he will get an extra days rest. I think hes got the easier group, while the Murray group will be punishing, and I think Novak will have an extra day off before the semis.Petch - Andy MurrayHard to argue against that logic and I do think that the odds have stacked up against Andy in terms of the obvious reasons and also in his group everyone can beat everyone so its coming down to sets and games. It has made it much trickier for him to come through. However, I really sense he would dearly, dearly love to win this tournament and I think hell be thinking Im better than everyone else in the top eight. That desire he has will see him find a way, but it wont be easy.Annabel - Andy MurrayI think hes come into this in the best form that weve ever seen him play. Hes contented and all the stars are aligned and I just think hes playing at a level above everyone else at the moment.
