#1 Belgian league have only added to von jin shuiqian 11.11.2019 03:57

PHILADELPHIA - The NHLs Olympic break is less than two weeks away but the threat of terrorism is keeping the situation volatile. After deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league would consider pulling out of Sochi if something "significant" happens before players arrive, those set to participate are trying not to worry about that scenario. "Between the NHL and the NHLPA and the Olympic people, in communication obviously with the people in Russia, theyre going to advise us if we shouldnt go," Ken Holland of Canadas management team said Tuesday. "Im looking at the lead of the NHL. "Until they tell us were not going, Im going to Newark and going to jump on a plane and go to Sochi." A Hockey Canada spokesman said the organization had no official comment, adding nothing has changed about the situation. Charter planes are scheduled to leave for Sochi on Feb. 9, two days after the opening ceremony. Security concerns are keeping athletes on edge well before that, though Daly said in an email to the Associated Press he doesnt expect the plan to change. "Obviously, if something significant were to transpire between now and February 9 that causes us to question that conclusion, we will re-evaluate," Daly told the AP. Forward Tomas Tatar, who will represent Slovakia, read about that Tuesday morning before the Detroit Red Wings morning skate. "There would (have to) be a good reason if something happens before," Tatar said. "Obviously that would be not everythings OK there, so I would probably agree with the people here — why we should go there if something is not good? Hopefully nothing will happen and I think everythings in good hands." Olympic teammate Andrej Meszaros, a defenceman for the Philadelphia Flyers, said that possibility is in the back of his mind even if he doesnt want it to be. "It would be disappointing, thats for sure, but safety first," Meszaros said. "Theres nothing you can do about it. "Unfortunately, the world is like it is with the threats and theres nothing you can do about it. People are (ticked) off. Well see what happens in the next few days." Mark Streit, who represented Switzerland in Salt Lake City in 2002, Turin in 2006 and Vancouver in 2010, is trying to keep his focus on the Flyers upcoming schedule and not the off-chance NHL players wont go to Sochi. "The NHL will do what they think is the best for the players and for our safety and for the families safety," Streit said. "Thats out of (our) control. Im not really worried about that." Jimmy Howard, whos expected to be the third U.S. goaltender, is more worried about bouncing back from another knee injury. He insisted hes not thinking about Olympic contingency plans or security concerns. "Im trying not to let that consume me,"Howard said. "I look at it as this could be possibly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. "Im hoping everything goes off without a hitch." U.S. forward James van Riemsdyk said after the Maple Leafs morning skate in Toronto on Tuesday he doesnt have any family members going and that its tough not to wonder about the safety of athletes in Sochi. "Theyve reassured us that theyre taking a lot of measures over there," van Riemsdyk said. "All the players want to play, thats not really the issue here. Safety is the No. 1 priority." Jakub Voracek of the Czech Republic is hoping the Russian government has spent enough money to keep everyone safe. "I think the security, its very tight there," the Flyers winger said. "Obviously its going to be a pain, probably, for the people that want to watch the games or something. But its what you got to do. "In todays world you never know what happens. You go into the mall right here and theres a shooting. You go to the movie theatre, you get shot. A lot of crazy people running around in the world today. Its not only in Russia. Youve got to make sure that the securitys very tight." While Howard hopes these are just "empty threats" against the Olympics, Holland recalled similar concerns going into Vancouver. Political concerns in that region of Russia have made this seem like a more dangerous situation. "I think in this world we live in today, unfortunately there are times that you always have concern," Holland said. "But you have to trust that the people that are in charge of security are going to be on top of things." The Players Association said in a statement "the NHLPA continues to be in contact with Olympic and security officials regarding plans for the Olympic Games in Sochi, and will work closely with all concerned to monitor matters in advance of and during the Games."

Arsenal lost to Dortmund but won the next two and is second with six. Anderlecht and Galatasaray have one point each.Here are some things to know about Tuesdays matches.___DORTMUNDS WOESDespite its perfect record in the Champions League, Dortmund is in big trouble in the Bundesliga.Dortmund has dropped to next-to-last after losing 2-1 at Bayern Munich on Saturday, its fifth consecutive loss. Juergen Klopps team has lost seven of its first 10 matches in the Bundesliga season.The last time Dortmund lost seven of its first 10 was 30 years ago.Dortmund is even on points with last-place Bremen, which has scored more goals. Dortmund, Champions League finalist in 2013 and winner in 1997, is 17 points behind Bundesliga leader Bayern and 13 points away from qualifying for next seasons Champions League.One thing to remember, though: When Dortmund began the Champions League with three straight victories, it won the title, in 1997.___DILEMA IN DefenceDortmund central defender Mats Hummels injured his foot in Munich and will be out for several weeks.Hummels left the game at halftime and then watched his replacement, Neven Subotic, make two crucial mistakes than led to Bayerns come-from-behind victory.Hummels and Subotic formed the backbone of Dortmunds championship sides in 2011 and 2012. But Subotic has been slow in regaining form after sitting out more than half a year with a knee injury.Hummels came back from this years World Cup in Brazil with the title but also with an injury and missed the start of the season. Just as he began returning to form, hes now out again.Klopp could decide to play the experienced Subotic against Galatasaray or give another chance to Matthias Ginter. Ginter was in the World Cup squad and was signed away from Frieburg, but has not had a start since giving away an own-goal six weeks ago.___GOOD IN GERMANYGalatasarays 4-0 home defeat to Dortmund gives it littlee ground for optimism going to Germany but for one fact: the Istanbul side has always performed well there.dddddddddddd.Galatasaray has won five in Germany, with five defeats and three draws. With Germanys large Turkish immigrant population, Galatasaray has always enjoyed a lot of support there.Galatasaray has won in four of its last six trips to Bundesliga opposition, losing only once.Five Galatasaray players were born in Germany: Hamit Altintop, Hakan Balta, Tarik Camdal, Furkan Ozcal and Yasin Oztekin.Dortmund has three players with Turkish roots — Nuri Sahin (injured), Ilkay Gundogan and Burak Camoglu.___ARSENAL EYES KNOCKOUT STAGESArsenal can secure its place in the second round if it beats Anderlecht on Tuesday and Galatasaray does not beat Borussia Dortmund.Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has scored four times in his last two games, spearheading a strike force boosted further by Theo Walcott returning from a torn knee ligament that has kept him out since January.Walcott made a substitute appearance in Arsenals 3-0 victory over Burnley on Saturday, and will want to step up his comeback on Tuesday.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger will hope for a smoother game than the last one against Anderlecht, where two goals in the final two minutes of the match in Belgium secured a dramatic 2-1 victory.___ANDRELECHT ADIEU?If Arsenal already dashed Anderlechts confidence with a belated 2-1 come-from-behind win in Brussels last month, injuries and lacklustre form in the Belgian league have only added to its low morale since.The Belgian champions travel to London without two key players. Belgium international Steven Defour, Anderlechts midfield mainstay, injured his calf during a mediocre 1-1 home draw against Lokeren.Even worse, creative forward Matias Suarez will be out for the rest of the year with a knee injury. It leaves Anderlecht without its star players in two lines, and its attack has been a problem for most of the season.In the league, Anderlecht lead by one point over AA Ghent and two over FC Brugge, with only 27 points out of a possible 42.The Champions League has given it little pleasure, with only a draw against Galatasaray giving some relief. Anderlecht has finished bottom of the group in all seven group-stage campaigns since it reached the last 16 in 2000-01. ' ' '
