Alen, 28, hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization. Richard Rodgers Jersey . -- Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale searched more than three quarters for five guys who would play well together. http://www.shoptheofficialpackers.com/Elite-Ahmad-Brooks-Packers-Jersey/. “The shootout, theres nothing wrong with it, I think its an exciting part of the game but its just one small aspect,” said Chicago Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman. “Its a skill exhibition. If you can get it back closer to regular hockey and have it decided that way; that would be my preference.” “I dont think its a knock on the shootout, I think more of the managers would like to see it end in overtime,” added Washington Capitals GM George McPhee. Kenny Clark Jersey .com) - A pair of Eastern Conference rivals will meet on Saturday as D. Kyle Murphy Jersey . Of all the names out there who could realistically be dealt by Wednesdays deadline, Ryan Kesler remains No. 1 on the most desired list. And while were not sure if theyre any closer to a deal, we now have a defined price.The Pittsburgh Penguins acquired a skilled winger from the Edmonton Oilers, making the Penguins a stronger threat heading into the second half of the season, while the Oilers appear to be setting their familiar path for the draft lottery. Numbers Game breaks down the David Perron deal. The Penguins Get: LW David Perron. Perron, 26, is a skilled winger who has been enduring a tough season in Edmonton, with reduced ice time and point production. After playing a career-high 19:08 per game last season, scoring a career-high 28 goals and 57 points, Perrons ice time has dropped this year, to 16:00 per game, and he has just five goals and 19 points in 38 games this season. That drop, however, appears more drastic than Perrons underlying numbers suggest. PERRON PRODUCTION YEAR G/60 PTS/60 SHOTS/60 EV SH% ON-ICE SH% CORSI% RELATIVE CORSI% 2013-14 0.88 1.91 8.52 10.3% 9.7% 45.9% +2.5% 2014-15 0.57 1.72 6.30 9.1% 7.2% 51.2% +2.3% While he isn’t generating as many shots as he did last season, Perron has spent most of the season with Mark Arcobello and Leon Draisaitl – neither of whom has played a full season in the NHL – as his centres. While his shooting percentage has dropped, there hasnt been an appreciable difference in shot locations, so his career-low 6.8% shooting percentage ought to be primed to improve. Going to Pittsburgh, Perron will see a monumental improvement in the calibre of centre that he plays with, as Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin are two of the world’s best and their talent ought to be complemented by Perron’s high-end puck skills. The Penguins need help on the wing. They’ve had a need for a scoring winger ever since Pascal Dupuis was lost for the season due to blood clots. Currently missing Patric Hornqvist, Blake Comeau and Steve Downie to various ailments, Pittsburgh could really use a proven top-six winger and Perron not only qualifies to help now, but he could be a long-term option too. At the very least, Perron offers more than a one-year solution for the Penguiins; he’s under contract through next season, at a cap hit of a little more than $3.dddddddddddd8-million, which is very reasonable for a player in his prime who already has three 20-goal seasons to his credit. The Oilers Get: LW Rob Klinkhammer and a first-round pick. 28-year-old Klinkhammer was something of a late bloomer; undrafted out of the Western Hockey League, he didn’t play a full NHL season until last season, when he scored 11 goals and 20 points in 72 games for the Coyotes. The Penguins, with a lineup decimated by injuries, grabbed Klinkhammer via trade in early December. While he’s not an offensive force, by any means, Klinkhammer is a legitimate NHL winger, who has positive possession stats (53.8% Corsi, +3.8% Relative) in 168 career games. The 6-foot-3 winger also plays a physical game, accruing 248 hits in 101 games since the start of last season. Klinkhammer can handle a third or fourth-line role for the Oilers, with Perron’s departure creating room for Benoit Pouliot to play in a top-six role once he’s activated from the injured list, where he’s been for the past five weeks with a broken foot. Coming at an inexpensive $650,000 price tag, Klinkhammer will be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end, so it’s possible that Edmonton isn’t his final destination this season, but the Oilers have been looking for more size in their bottom six and maybe Klinkhammer could fit that need. The first-round pick is the bigger asset for the Oilers. Even if, as expected, the Penguins finish near the top of the standings, a pick in the 25-30 range offers a little less than 15% chance of turning into a top-six forward or top-four defenceman, but a 55% chance of landing an NHL player. Verdict: It’s easy to like what the Penguins are getting, because Perron isn’t an expiring deal and he’s a productive player who could be a strong complementary piece on a very good team. The risk the Oilers take in making this deal is that they could end up with nothing. Late first-round picks are only a little better than coin flips and there’s no guarantee Klinkhammer plays for them beyond this season.
