wn everyone that this team is more than capab

The Calgary Flames were hard-working team last season, but they werent overly skilled and had subpar goaltending. They made a move in free agency to address the latter concern. Numbers Game examines the Flames addition of Jonas Hiller. The Flames Get: G Jonas Hiller. Hiller, 32, has been an above average starting goaltender over the course of his career, posting a .916 save percentage, but the past three seasons have not been so kind, as Hillers .911 save percentage ranks 22nd out of 29 goaltenders to play at least 100 games in that span. Of those below Hiller on that list, Steve Mason and Ondrej Pavelec are the only ones set to be clear number ones with their teams going into next season. Hillers even-strength save percentage over that time, .922, is below average, at least among goaltenders that have played starters minutes. Being a below-average starter can still be an improvement for the Flames, but it should also manage expectations for Hiller, who was beaten out for playoff playing time in Anaheim, by rookies Frederik Andersen and John Gibson. Even so, in Calgary, Hiller will be battling Karri Ramo for playing time and Ramo had a .911 save percentage last season -- his first year in the NHL since 2008-2009 -- and owns a .902 save percentage in 88 career games. To his credit, Ramo came on after a slow start last season, posting a .918 save percentage in 30 games from December through the end of the season, so maybe he can compete with Hiller for playing time. Even if Hiller might not be great at this stage of his career, hes likely an upgrade on Ramo and thats what matters to the Flames. With Hiller and Ramo together, the Flames have a chance to get something close to league-average goaltending. That may not be enough to get them into playoff contention -- they ranked 26th in puck possession last season, after all -- but he makes the Flames better. Signed for $9-million over two seasons, Hiller is being paid like a starting goaltender, but the short term makes this a smart, low-risk move for the Flames.

Archie Manning Jersey .com) - Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist both scored in the shootout as the Detroit Red Wings denied the Minnesota Wilds comeback bid with a 5-4 win on Tuesday.Pakistan Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq tells Saj Sadiq of PakPassion.net he is not fazed by defeat to England in the second Test... The manner of Pakistans capitulation in the second Test, where they lost by 330 runs, appeared to nullify any positives gained by the fantastic victory at Lords.But despite the gloom that usually descends on Pakistan cricket in the face of a poor performance, newly-appointed Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq is convinced that there is light at the end of the tunnel. We may have struggled in Manchester, but it is my firm belief that our batsmen will have picked up important experience by the end of this tour which will benefit them in the future, said Inzamam. Watch a pick of the action from the fourth day of the second test between England and Pakistan at Old Trafford There is no need to panic due to the recent performance. It is usual for a team with many players who have never played in such conditions before, to struggle a little, similar to when non-Asian teams find it tough to play spin bowling in the sub-continent.Back home or in the UAE, we try and play every ball that we face, but in English conditions you need to be selective about which balls to play and which ones to leave.Our batsmen need to improve themselves technically. However, I do not believe that there is any blame to be laid at their feet for the defeat. We need to have patience.The England victory at Old Trafford may have been painful for Pakistan cricket followers but England batsman Joe Roots fantastic 254 against a world-class bowling attack was a sight to behold. Root innings one of the greats Nasser Hussain hailed Joe Roots double hundred as one of the greatest innings for England hes seen A veteran of almost five-hundred international games, Inzamam expressed his admiration for the 25-year-old England batsman who is laying waste to many an international bowling attack.Root has really impressed me, said Inzamam. Ive watched his career closely; he is a fantastic player and seems to be improving with every innings that he plays.I see a great future for him if he continues to bat in the way he is batting at the moment.The four-Test series now stands level at 1-1 after Pakistan kicked off their campaign with an impressive 75-run victory against England at Lords.There arent many cricket followers who will forget the unique press-up celebration by Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq when he scored a fantastic hundred in the first Test. Misbah-ul-Haq celebrated his century against England at Lords in a very unusual way, by doing some press-ups! Apart from the well-deserved accolades he received for his innings, his performance in that game also underlined his importance to the Pakistan team and seemed to end any talk of age not being on his side on this tour.ddddddddddddInzamam said the only considerations for Misbahs inclusion in this team and for his future participation were his performances and fitness - the latter helped by the squads pre-tour army boot camp.Misbah has shown the way for all batsmen to follow, added Inzaman. He is the most experienced player in the team and our captain.We also have Younus Khan, who we can rely on for experience. Performances by both these players are key to our successes. Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq praised the performances of Englands Alastair Cook and Joe Root after defeat in the second test Misbahs age is not an issue - there is absolutely no limit on the age of a player for him to be part of the Pakistan team. The only factor that matters is the level of performance and the fitness of the player.The way Misbah is playing now, I see no reason why he should not be given the opportunity to represent Pakistan in upcoming foreign tours, as his experience will be crucial for the team.Chastised by their loss at Old Trafford, Misbah and Pakistan will now need to re-group and look ahead to the remaining two Test matches to try to finish the series on a winning note.While the loss at Old Trafford is fresh in the minds of fans and players alike, Inzamam says the win in the opening Test at Lords cannot be ignored as it showed to the world that Pakistan are not a pushover. The win at Lords has shown everyone that this team is more than capable of winning against tough opposition and in foreign conditions, he said.The Old Trafford Test obviously did not go that well, but then we have to give credit to England for making a comeback in this series and shows that they are a very tough team to beat.Regardless of the result in the second Test, I am convinced that as the players get more experience in these conditions, their performance will improve and Pakistan will get better results and bounce back.Watch day one of the third Investec Test between England against Pakistan, from Edgbaston, at 10am, Wednesday Sky Sports 2.
