Raptors coach digs deep into wardrobe

Raptors coach digs deep into wardrobe TORONTO - Nick Nurse looked sharp Thursday night — and very blue. The Toronto Raptors coach donned an electric blue jacket to promote Sager Strong night in honour of late NBA sideline reporter Craig Sager, known for his colourful attire. Nurse looked like he had been moonlighting in a casino. Or as an Elvis impersonator. The Raptors game against the NBA champion Golden State Warriors was shown south of the border on TNT, whose studio analysts led the Sager tribute with some colourful outfits of their own. "Today we celebrate Craig Sager's spectacular style," the network tweeted. Canadian TV broadcasters Matt Devlin and Jack Armstrong also opted for courtside colour.

Seattle 2021 is now a reality and NHL owners are $650 million richer. That’s $21,666,666 million per team, with the exception of the Vegas Golden Knights, who will not receive a cut of this action.

Soon there will be name-the-team contests, and team colours will be presented. And finally, some real construction will get underway. We all know the rules of the expansion draft for Seattle will mirror those for the Golden Knights, but I suspect this time around NHL teams won’t submit to the de facto blackmail Vegas GM George McPhee performed as he all but threatened to take each GM’s first born if the player he truly desired wasn’t available.

Richard Sherman still upset over way Seahawks tenure ended

Richard Sherman still upset over way Seahawks tenure ended It has now been over a year since Richard Sherman played his last game with the Seattle Seahawks, but that is clearly not enough time for the All-Pro cornerback to let bygones be bygones. With his San Francisco 49ers set to travel to Seattle this weekend, Sherman spoke with Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News about the way his time ended with the team that drafted him. He’s clearly still bothered by the fact that the Seahawks cut him when he was recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. “You just expect after you’ve done so much for a franchise that they wouldn’t cut you when you’re hurt,” Sherman said. “It’s kind of a respect thing more than anything.

Not sure they will hire a coach prior to 2021.

Seattle 2021 is now a reality and NHL owners are 0 million richer. Despite the arguments for and against him, Hakstol became the fourth- longest tenured head coach in the league yesterday thanks to the Chicago Blackhawks firing of Joel Quenneville .

And while we know that Tod Leiweke and Victor DeBonis, each of whom have tons of NHL experience, will pilot the Seattle team on the business side, we don’t know yet who will be the guiding light on the hockey operations. Who will be the general manager and coach driving other NHL teams crazy between now and the expansion draft? McPhee didn’t hire his coach, Gerrard Gallant, until well into the expansion process while David Poile, when he took up the Nashville challenge, hired his guy, Barry Trotz, very early in the process to help scout players they thought would best suit the new Predators.

The list candidates to run the new Seattle franchise is an interesting one:

Mike Gillis: The former Canucks’ GM lives in Victoria. He has spent the past few years travelling the world, trying to better understand sports management. He is a smart, thoughtful man who has learned from his triumphs and mistakes in Vancouver. He is also very close to Victor DeBonis, who is the new Seattle COO.

Anonymous NBA coach: 'You can't have a hot woman' in the league as HC

Anonymous NBA coach: 'You can't have a hot woman' in the league as HC While the NBA's progress in hiring women for coaching roles and front-office jobs has exceeded that of other major professional sports, there are still roadblocks. One of those appears to be generalist perceptions and tired old attitudes. In an interview with SB Nation's Tim Struby, one anonymous NBA coach suggested that players would want to have sex with an attractive female coach. "You can't have a hot woman in the NBA," the coach was quoted as saying. "Guys will be trying to f--k her every day." While numerous women coach men's basketball teams at the high school and even college level, there are only four full-time female assistant coaches in the NBA.

And that leaves an opening for NHL Seattle to secure a marquee name. Quenneville is just 3½ years removed from coaching the Blackhawks to their third Stanley Cup in six So, Quenneville should top any coaching candidates list. Naturally, a GM wants final say in their coach , so that comes first and

Kelly McCrimmon: The Golden Knights assistant GM was integral to the Vegas expansion draft and their success during their inaugural season. He knows hockey talent and now knows his way around the NHL.

Mark Hunter: Maybe the best hockey evaluator NOT in the NHL, Hunter’s stock is rising every time Mitch Marner, Patrick Kane, Matthew Tkachuk, Bo Horvat and many more contribute to the NHL game.

Dave Nonis: The former Canucks and Maple Leafs general manager now works for the Ducks and can handle the pressures of working for an expansion team having already worked in two high-profile media markets.

Ron Hextall: The former Flyers’ GM has excellent skills for a GM and will certainly have learned from his time in Philadelphia.

Dean Lombardi: The man who won two Stanley Cups in Los Angeles is now part of the Flyers’ management team. His vast knowledge and experience would certainly be an asset.

NHL approves expansion to Seattle

NHL approves expansion to Seattle SEA ISLAND, Ga. - The NHL is coming to Seattle. League commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement on Tuesday at a press conference following the conclusion of the board of governors meetings. The NHL's 32nd team was unanimously approved in a vote and will begin play in 2021-22. Seattle's ownership group led by billionaire David Bonderman and a number of minority partners, including Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer, will pay an expansion fee of $US650 million. © Provided by thecanadianpress.

The Seattle NHL team is a professional ice hockey expansion team that will be based in Seattle and will begin play in the 2021–22 NHL season.

Laurence Gilman: The former assistant GM in Phoenix and Vancouver is now in Toronto in a similar role. He helped the NHL build the expansion draft rules and would be a great choice. He is also very close to DeBonis.

Ron Francis: The former Carolina GM is getting a lot of credit for the young, fast Hurricanes’ roster. His low-key approach is complimented by his thorough evaluation of talent.

Steve Yzerman: The architect of the Lightning team is on every list of potential GM openings. As it should be.

Mike Futa: The L.A. Kings assistant GM has tremendous ties to junior hockey. His player personnel background should make him a viable candidate.

The list of potential head coaches is also deep and not limited to: Joel Quenneville, Alain Vigneault, Todd McLellan, Dallas Eakins, Todd Nelson, Sheldon Keefe, and Lindy Ruff.

I started writing this blog on a plane, thinking the list would be easy and short. But the more I thought about it, the longer the list grew. The pool of talented, experienced people is deep. And the list doesn’t put every candidate forward. Of course the list will change as more candidates become available through firings and resignations.

And for what its worth… I like the Seattle “Totems.”
