#1 league games before MLS takes a von jin shuiqian 09.10.2019 04:22

TORONTO -- The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed defenceman John-Michael Liles on waivers as their opening-night roster begins to come into focus. Liles looked like the odd man out on the blue-line during the pre-season, something that became even more clear after Cody Franson signed. If hes not claimed by another NHL team, Liles could be assigned to the AHLs Toronto Marlies. The 32-year-old has a US$3.875-million salary-cap hit. If hes sent to the minors, $925,000 of that would come off the Leafs cap under the new collective bargaining agreement. Liles said after the Leafs pre-season finale Saturday night that he would just "hang out" while waiting for an update on his status. "Its management, its not something that you control as a player, whether its me, whether its one of the young guys," he. "Its the nature of the game were in and the business that were in." Liles acknowledged the spotlight was brighter in Toronto than in other places he has played. Still, he has tried not to let speculation bother him. "Youre still a professional and youre still doing a job and thats ultimately why were here," Liles said. "The business side is the business side, and my job is to take care of playing." Liles scored a goal and added a primary assist against the Detroit Red Wings in the Leafs final exhibition game. In addition to Liles, the Leafs put forwards Trevor Smith and Troy Bodie, defenceman T.J. Brennan and Korbinian Holzer and goaltender Drew MacIntyre on waivers with the intention of sending them to the AHL. They sent Jamie Devane, Jerry DAmigo, Andrew MacWilliam, Josh Leivo, Spencer Abbott, David Broll, Stuart Percy and Greg McKegg to the Marlies, leaving 22 players on the roster. One of those players is 19-year-old prospect Morgan Rielly, who could be one of seven defencemen on the opening-night roster. Rielly could play up to nine games in the NHL before Toronto burns a year of his entry-level contract. Coach Randy Carlyle was noncommittal when asked Saturday night about Rielly being ready to play at this level. "I think Morgan Riellys very close," Carlyle said. "To say that, unequivocally, hes ready to play in the NHL is a tough question to ask and a tougher question to answer at this point. We know hes played very well for our hockey club, hes a talented young man and hes only going to get better. Those are the tough decisions that youre faced with." Right-winger David Clarksons 10-game suspension, and enforcer Frazer McLarens broken finger make things tougher. The Leafs must be under the $64.3-million salary cap by the roster deadline of 5 p.m. Monday, and Clarksons $5.25-million hit will continue to count. If the Leafs stick with the 22 players currently on the roster, counting McLaren and Clarkson, right-winger Carter Ashton could be the final forward. Assuming Rielly sticks around, Toronto would open the season Tuesday in Montreal with 11 forwards and seven defencemen in the lineup. Rielly said Saturday night he "wont have any complaints" if sent back to junior, but he feels like hes ready to play in the NHL. "I feel like I am there, but thats up to the coaches if they want me to play this year or not," he said. "They have a goal to reach, which is to play in the playoffs again. Thats what they ultimately want." With teams needing to get their training camp rosters down to a maximum of 23 players by Monday afternoon, a number of NHL players found themselves placed on waivers Sunday. The players must now wait 24 hours to find out whether they have been claimed by another club or will be re-assigned Monday afternoon. NHL rosters must be set by 5 pm et Monday with all teams needing to get their payrolls under the $64.3-million salary cap. Other notable players on waivers from Canadian teams include Winnipegs Patrice Cormier and Edmontons Philip Larsen. The 23-year-old Cormier is on a one-year, $575,000 deal with the Jets. He has scored just one goal in 40 career NHL games with the Jets and Thrashers despite once being a highly-touted prospect and a key piece in the trade that sent Ilya Kovalchuk to the New Jersey Devils. Larsen, also 23, was acquired by the Oilers in the trade that sent captain Shawn Horcoff to the Dallas Stars. He scored two goals and three assists in 32 games with the Stars last season and has five goals and 19 assists in 95 career games, all with Dallas. He is currently in the second year of a two-year deal he signed with the Stars worth an average annual value of $1.025 million. Sundays waiver list is as follows: Calgary: Blair Jones, Derek Smith, Ben Street. Edmonton: Philip Larsen, Ryan Hamilton. Toronto: Korbinian Holzer, T.J. Brennan John-Michael Liles, Trevor Smith, Troy Bodie, Drew McIntyre. Winnipeg: Patrice Cormier, Adam Pardy. The Oilers also claimed Luke Gadzic from the Dallas Stars. Other waiver placements on Sunday include: Anaheim: Nolan Yonkman, Boston: Nick Johnson, Buffalo: Alexander Sulzer, Carolina: Chris Terry, Chicago: Ryan Stanton, Colorado: Guillaume Desbiens, Detroit: Cory Emmerton, Florida: Joey Crabb, Colby Robak, Los Angeles: Jeff Schultz, New Jersey: Cam Janssen, NY Islanders: Joe Finley, NY Rangers: Stu Bickel, Brandon Mashinter, Darroll Powe, Pittsburgh: Andrew Ebbett, Chris Conner, San Jose: Bracken Kearns, John McCarthy, Matt Pelech, Tampa Bay: Dana Tyrell, Mike Angelidis, Matt Taormina, Washington: Joel Rechlicz Additionally, first round picks Jonathan Drouin and Bo Horvat were returned to their junior teams by the Tampa Bay Lightning and Vancouver Canucks, respectively, while the Los Angeles Kings released goaltender Mathieu Garon from his professional tryout.

The same cant be said of last Saturdays 2-2 draw at Olympic Stadium against a very weakened New York Red Bulls side and one which had three stalwarts in Henry, Cahill and Olave back home in Harrison, NJ.TORONTO -- Its Week 12 in Major League Soccer and Toronto FC is 4-4-0. The Philadelphia Union, FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo have played 13 games while New York and Seattle have had 12. Toronto and the Los Angeles Galaxy, with nine games, are the only clubs in the 19-team league not to have played at least 10 matches so far. "Its very frustrating because were in a false position," said Toronto captain Steven Caldwell. "A very big if in the MLS, but if we win all our games in hand, were on top of the league. "Were not denying weve had a little bit of an up-and-down start but weve shown glimpses of real quality and weve had games weve let ourselves down. If we had played similar games to the rest of the teams, Im pretty sure wed be very near the top if not on the top. So its slightly disappointing but well get our chance to address that when we play more games than other teams. Weve just got to be ready for that. "Weve had injuries and were losing Michael (Bradley to the World Cup) for a longish period. It might be a blessing in disguise." With 12 points, Toronto is currently seventh in the East -- two points and two places out of the playoff picture. But its rate of 1.5 points a game is good for third in the conference (and fifth in the leaguee).dddddddddddd Torontos weather is part of the reason for the lack of early games. Toronto had a bye the opening weekend, for example. The Amway Canadian Championship also has not helped the calendar, taking up four midweek games. And television, no doubt, played its part in scheduling with more games saved for later on, when hockey is over. Including Friday nights game in Kansas City, Toronto has three more league games before MLS takes a two-week break in mid-June during the World Cup. When play resumes, Toronto has 23 league games remaining. In contrast, Philadelphia will have 18. For Toronto manager Ryan Nelsen, the schedule has pluses and minuses. Injured players have had a chance to heal. But a team that brought in a half-dozen starters during the off-season needs time to mesh on the field. "This team needs more games than anyone other team, to tell you the truth," said Nelsen. "Just because thats how you get to know each other. And a lot of players werent there in pre-season -- they were injured or hadnt arrived or different kind of stories. "So we kind of started our pre-season in away during the season. So we started a few steps back. The more games, the better for these guys. ... Thats what were looking forward to." ' ' '
