Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien dismissed any speculation of a bad relationship with P. [url=https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/]Coyotes Jerseys China[/url] .K. Subban after his decision to bench the star defenceman for half a period in Wednesday nights 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers. "Ive got a great relationship with P.K.," Therrien told reporters after the teams practice in Brossard on Friday. "We communicate a lot. And he understands our decision (to bench him) and totally agrees." Therrien drew plenty of criticism from fans and the local media over the last couple of days after benching Subban for about 10 minutes after he took an unnecessary roughing penalty at the end of the second period. "Were making a big story honestly that as far as Im concerned isnt such a big thing," he said. Therrien added Friday that he had a conversation with Subban at their morning practice and that he and the reigning Norris Trophy winner were on the same page. "(Therriens) the coach and at the end of the day hes got to make decisions in the best interests of the team," Subban told reporters after practice. "Right now weve got the best team in the world coming into our building on Saturday so thats where my focus is." The Canadiens will host the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.

[url=https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/]Arizona Coyotes Pro Shop[/url] . -- The Oakland Raiders added a veteran presence to their young receiving group by signing free agent James Jones to a three-year contract Monday. [url=https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/]https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/[/url] . A wide-eyed 18-year-old visiting North America for only the second time in his young life, Caboclo immediately noticed the "big tower" his new home is best known for.FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- In his second season, Julio Jones had more than 1,000 yards receiving, reached the Pro Bowl and scored two touchdowns in the NFC championship game. So what part of his game is he looking to build on in Year 3? "All around," he said. "The coaches are doing a good job with me, just moving me around, putting me in spaces to make plays -- in the backfield, in the slot, out wide, whatever the case may be, depending on who we are playing." Getting the ball to Jones will be a priority for the Falcons, who fell just shy of the Super Bowl last season and have as talented a group of skill-position players as any team in the NFC. Jones, Matt Ryan, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and free agent acquisition Stephen Jackson have a combined 23 Pro Bowls. In the preseason, however, those five players have not played together, and none are expected to see the field on Thursday against the Jaguars. Jones missed the first preseason game with hamstring issues, and White hurt his ankle early in the second preseason game. Gonzalez missed all of training camp and the first two preseason games to spend time with his family, leaving the receiving group in flux in the preseason. But this is the third season White, Jones, Gonzalez and third receiver Harry Douglas have been catching passes from Ryan, so the chemistry should be there once the season starts against the Saints on Sept. 8. "Its really not that hard," Jones said. "I just go out and do my thing. Everybody is moving around and learning the offence. We dont want the defence to be able to key on one guy." Jones feels playing only parts of two preseason games, assuming he sits out Thursday, is sufficient to preepare him for the season. [url=https://www.cheapcoyotes.com/]Coyotes Jerseys 2020[/url]. . "It is enough. The coaches do a great job coming out here and getting our conditioning in," Jones said. "However much work the coaches feel like we need to get ready, thats what well do." Much has been expected of Jones since the Falcons traded five draft picks for the right to select him with the sixth overall pick in the 2011 draft. The deal was a good one for the Falcons, as Jones has progressed from 54 catches as a rookie to 79 last season. In the NFC championship game, Jones had 11 catches and a career-high 182 yards in addition to his two touchdowns against the 49ers. That game ended in a 28-24 loss, and the Falcons are ready to get 2013 started. But Jones stuck to the script on Tuesday, saying you cannot look to the regular season until the preseason is over. "NFL is one game at a time," he said. "You can never look forward, because thats how you get beat. You dont want to start that habit." Notes: Asante Samuel, Stephen Nicholas and Roddy White missed practice on Tuesday. ... The Falcons are 1-10 in the past three preseasons, and 36-12 in the past three regular seasons. ... Coach Mike Smith said one of the final battles for a roster spot is at linebacker, where Paul Worrilow and Joplo Bartu are competing and both figure to see a lot of action against the Jaguars. ... A top play from practice was a Julio Jones stop-and-go pass from Matt Ryan that beat rookie defensive back Robert Alford. Worst play was a fumbled handoff from Ryan to Stephen Jackson that Osi Umenyiora scooped up. ... Smith anticipates Matt Bryant will be healthy enough by the first game to enable the Falcons to keep just one kicker. ' ' '
