TRAIK-EOTOMY: Emergency defenceman? Leafs could sure use one now – Toronto Sun

Published

 on


Does the league allow for an emergency backup defenceman?

Is there a 42-year-old sitting in the stands who can skate backwards and chip pucks off the glass?

If so, you might want to call Kyle Dubas. The general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs could use all the help he can get these days after Jake Muzzin broke his hand in a game against Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

Or, here’s an idea, maybe Dubas should have traded for a defenceman at the deadline.

Brenden Dillon? Dylan DeMelo? Zach Bogosian?

Any one of them would be a welcome addition right now. At least Dubas had the wherewithal to keep Tyson Barrie.

It’s not being a Monday morning quarterback to suggest the Leafs should have known Muzzin was going to break his hand a day after the deadline passed. Even before the injury, the Leafs were paper thin on the blue line. Now, without Muzzin, Morgan Rielly and Cody Ceci, the Leafs will try to hold down a playoff spot with a defence that features four players who have combined for 123 career NHL games.

Maybe this is for the best. Maybe this will be the thing that finally forces the forwards into back-checking.

If there was one thing to learn from Toronto’s embarrassing loss against Carolina the other night, it is that you play differently when you’ve got a Zamboni driver in net. The Hurricanes allowed just 10 shots once David Ayres got into the game because they knew every one of them had a chance of beating their emergency backup goalie.

The Leafs, whose defence has largely been plucked from the American Hockey League, now have to think the same way.

The forwards need to change their mindset. They need protect their minor-league defenders. They have to play harder without the puck if Rasmus Sandin, Timothy Liljegren and Calle Rosen hope to have a chance against Florida on Thursday.

If they do that and actually win, then maybe when Muzzin, Rielly and Ceci eventually return to the lineup, this will be a different, more defensively responsible team than before.

TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT

Best line about emergency backup goalie David Ayres goes to Carey Price (via Arpon Basu of The Athletic): “I heard the Zamboni driver’s going to win the Vezina.” … This just in: Connor McDavid makes linemates better … Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin had to love hearing Ilya Kovalchuk in his first news conference in Washington describe playing in Montreal as “one of the best decisions of my hockey life.” That’s the sort of compliment that could go a long way in attracting free agents in the summer … In the time it took you to read this, another Blue Jackets player just got injured … Best of luck to Patrick Marleau on trying cap off his (Hall of Fame-worthy?) career with a Stanley Cup. Wish Joe Thornton had been afforded the same opportunity.

HERE’S ONE FOR YOU

Grit matters in the playoffs. And it doesn’t come cheap. Just ask the Tampa Bay Lightning, who after getting bounced in the first round of last year’s playoffs signed Patrick Maroon and then gave up a pair of first-round picks for Blake Coleman and Barclay Goodrow at the deadline … The main reason why Coleman and Goodrow went for first-rounders? They are on cheap, controllable contracts. In the cap-crunched world every team is living in, that’s almost as important as goals and assists … After the dust has settled, I’m predicting a Tampa Bay versus Vegas final …  Wayne Simmonds might be the kind of player Buffalo has needed for some time, but he’s arrived a couple of years too late. Simmonds has eight goals this year. He managed just one goal in 19 games after getting traded to Nashville at the deadline last season. There’s some significant mileage on his body.

FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH

One coach on why Tyson Barrie wasn’t moved at the deadline: “He’s not the kind of player teams want for the playoffs.” Ouch … Is there enough space on Robin Lehner’s neck for a tattoo of the state of Nevada? … Everyone knows Andreas Athanasiou can skate. Now, we’ll see if he can play a two-way game. The Oilers might need that more than goals … Sebastian Aho, who has 36 goals, has snuck into the Rocket Richard Trophy race with 11 goals in 11 games this month … Hope the Vancouver Canucks don’t regret not getting a “name” goalie at the deadline. If their playoff hopes die with Thatcher Demko, it could derail the 24-year-old’s confidence going forward … Am I the only one who thinks the Rangers could sneak into the playoffs? If so, it will be weird to see Henrik Lundqvist watching the games from the press box.

SENS SHOULD HAVE KEPT PAGEAU

Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion can talk all day about the many draft picks that he once again accumulated in yet another fire sale at the trade deadline, but losing Jean-Gabriel Pageau was not a good look for a franchise that is becoming the NHL’s version of the Montreal Expos when it comes to retaining talent.

It’s one thing to draft and develop players. It’s another to keep them around.

The Senators haven’t been doing enough of the latter.

Kyle Turris left because he wanted a raise. The same goes for Erik Karlsson and Mark Stone. And now Pageau, a hometown kid who began his hockey life in Ottawa as a bottom-six forward before working his way up to the top line, priced himself out of the city.

What’s the message to fans? What’s the message to players?

On the same day that the Senators cut ties with Pageau, the New York Rangers announced a seven-year extension for Chris Kreider. The reason for not trading him was simple: Kreider is someone worth keeping around for the rebuild. He’s a competitor. He’s team-first. He’s a guy who sets an example with his play on the ice, as well as his work ethic off the ice.

Talk to members of the Senators and they say the same things about Pageau.

Bobby Ryan said he “kind of personifies what you want the Sens to be.” When told that Pageau had challenged a much larger Jacob Trouba to a fight after a nasty hit on his new teammate, Thomas Chabot laughed and said he wasn’t surprised.

“He’s such a big competitor and he’s going to do anything for his team. He’s always going to put the team ahead of himself.”

Those are qualities that the Senators will need going forward if they hope to go from a bottom-feeder to a playoff contender. Maybe one of the guys they pick up in this year’s draft can provide it.

That is, before management sends them out the door because they asked for a raise.

HURRICANES GOING FOR IT

When the Carolina Hurricanes reached the conference final last year, GM Don Waddell told me the challenge was for the team, which hasn’t qualified for the playoffs in back-to-back years since 2002, to keep the momentum going.

His moves at the trade deadline showed how serious he was.

It’s difficult to find another team that made as many improvements as Carolina, which added second-line centre Vincent Trocheck from Florida and defencemen Brady Skjei (Rangers) and Sami Vatanen (Devils).

Will it lead to a playoff spot? Maybe. Maybe not. As of Wednesday, Carolina was two points back of Columbus for the final wild-card spot, with three games in hand.

But like last year’s Blue Jackets, at least they’re going for it. At least their players know that management has given them every chance. That’s more than the Florida Panthers, Toronto Maple Leafs or Calgary Flames can say.

There are two reasons for buying at the trade deadline: To reward the players or to rescue them. Waddell was motivated by both.

Following Saturday’s win against Toronto, in which Carolina lost defenceman Brett Pesce to an injury and had to rely on a 42-year-old emergency backup after both their goalies left the game hurt, Waddell said he couldn’t sit back and not do something to salvage the season.

“You watch what happened Saturday night and how this team responded to that situation. I can’t even think about what those players were thinking minus two goalies, minus (Brett) for most of the game,” Waddell told reporters following the deadline. “We owe it to those players to give them the best chance for success.”

That’s the kind of message that resonates with fans. And for a team that could be a dangerous first-round opponent if it finds its way into the playoffs, it’s something that can further motivate the players.

The most compelling matchups to watch on Monday at the National Bank Open – Sportsnet.ca

Published

 on


After a weekend of qualifying in extreme heat, the National Bank Open picks up steam on Monday with the main draw beginning for the women in Toronto and the men in Montreal. 

While the schedule looks fun, the only issue could be the weather, with rain in the forecast in both cities. 

Here’s a look at the most compelling matchups at both venues on opening day. 

Women’s headliner

No. 13 Leylah Annie Fernandez (Canada) vs. Qualifier Storm Sanders (Australia), 7 p.m. ET / 4 p.m. PT 

Fernandez, from Laval, Que., plays her first match since suffering a Grade 3 stress fracture in her right foot in a quarterfinal loss at the French Open on May 31. 

The 19-year-old Canadian has a favourable draw, facing a player ranked outside the top 200. 

Sanders hasn’t won a match in a main draw this year. 

Men’s headliner

Denis Shapovalov (Canada) vs. Alex de Minaur (Australia), 6:30 p.m. ET / 3:30 p.m. PT 

Shapovalov, from Richmond Hill, Ont., has slipped to No. 22 in the rankings – as of Sunday — after losing seven of his past eight matches. 

De Minaur was one spot above him at No. 21. 

The Australian is 2-0 lifetime against Shapovalov, who hopes to replicate his 2017 Montreal magic when he stunned Rafael Nadal.

Other highlights

Serena Williams (U.S.) vs. ‘Lucky Loser’ Nuria Parrizas-Diaz (Spain), Approximately 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT 

The 40-year-old Williams will play an official singles match for just the second time this year on Monday. 

After losing in the first round at Wimbledon, the 23-time Grand Slam champ begins hard-court prep for the U.S. Open against a player ranked outside the top 50. 

Last time in Toronto in 2019, Williams made the final before retiring because of injury in the first set against Canada’s Bianca Andreescu. 

Andy Murray (Great Britain) vs. No. 10 Taylor Fritz (U.S.), Not before 2 p.m. ET / 11 a.m. PT 

With Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal not in Montreal, Murray is the lone player from that familiar foursome to be taking the court. 

Now 35, Murray will be an underdog against Fritz. The Brit did reach a final in June at the Stuttgart Open, but then exited in the second round of Wimbledon at home. 

Fritz has been battling a foot injury and stopped playing a match last week in the third set in Washington, where temperatures were very high. 

Fritz has said the injury has prevented him from doing his usual fitness routine.

Canada’s $30 billion online gambling market

Published

Canada's $30 billion online gambling market

Canada has traditionally been a first mover in North America when it comes to the more progressive areas of legal reform. The nation was among the first in the world to legalize recreational cannabis, and sports betting was legalized in 1985, more than 30 years before the US Supreme Court struck down PASPA.

However, one area where Canada lags behind is when it comes to placing wagers online. Reforms are finally being seen this year in the shape of Ontario launching a new iGaming market in April and the federal ban on single-event sports betting being lifted last year. It’s not before time, however, as the Canadian online casino market alone is estimated to be worth more than $30 billion per year.

 

The popularity of online casinos

Market research carried out last year showed that seven out of 10 Canadians who gambled did so online. That’s an astonishing figure for a country that, at the time, had no online gambling infrastructure of its own. It left the field completely open for offshore operators, and a glance at Gamble Online (https://www.gambleonline.co/en-ca/) shows there are plenty out there actively targeting Canadian real money casino gamers. Many, for example, accept Canadian dollar or offer other viable alternatives such as Bitcoin.

Slot games dominate in terms of both popularity and the total amount wagered, which is no great surprise given the thousands of different games there are in this category. Roulette is the top-rated table game among Canadians, with blackjack and poker following closely behind.

The fact that Canadian gamblers know what they like and where to find it means there’s no guarantees as to when or even if they will switch from the offshore providers to Canadian online casinos as and when they become available. Ontario residents will provide the first clue.

 

Advantages of using a licensed casino

The advantages of switching from an unlicensed offshore operator to a licensed one are plain to see. There is better consumer protection if something goes wrong, such as the casino going bankrupt or having a major data breach. There are more payment options, as banks will have no qualms about dealing with a locally licensed provider. Finally, and especially now, in what are still the early days, there are numerous bonuses and promotions as the casinos compete for your business.

Of course, using a casino that is licensed to operate in Ontario helps to generate tax revenue, too, which ultimately works to everybody’s benefit.

 

What about the downsides?

Casinos have to meet certain requirements in order to be granted a Canadian license. This is logical, but the regulator needs to take a pragmatic approach. In Germany and the Netherlands, gaming has become so tightly controlled in terms of wagering limits and the speed of slot games that some gamblers have been voting with their feet and going back to the unlicensed offshore alternatives.

 

It is still too early to draw definitive conclusions, but the indications are that Ontario has balanced things better, only prohibiting autoplay and placing a 2.5 second minimum spin time on slots.
