The Colorado Avalanche and Calgary Flames made a two-for-two swap, with the Avalanche getting a member of their 2001 Stanley Cup champion team back in the fold. Brenton Bersin Jersey . Numbers Game looks at the deal sending Alex Tanguay back to Colorado. The Flames Get: RW David Jones and D Shane OBrien. Jones, 28, is coming off the worst season of his pro career, during which he scored three goals and nine points in 33 games, the lowest rates of his career after signing a four-year, $16-million contract last summer. While Jones has never been a great puck possession player, he did at least take on some heavy minutes for the Avalanche last season, with tough opposition and more starts in the defensive zone. A two-time 20-goal scorer, Jones will play in Calgarys top nine forwards and is likely to score on better than 4.8% of his shots, his career-low set last season but, given Calgarys current crop of centres, it would be asking a lot for Jones to immediately bounce back to 20 goals or 40 points and, for $4-million per season, thats probably on the low end of what should be expected in order to provide value. 29-year-old Shane OBrien had his role reduced, with his ice time down from 19:13 per game in 2011-2012 to 15:30 last season, while playing only 28 of 48 games, but his puck possession stats were quite good when he did play. OBrien is 6-foot-3, 230 pounds and provides toughness. His 853 penalty minutes in seven seasons ranks 11th in the league over that time. OBrien does figure to get more regular playing time in Calgary, and is under contract for two more years, at $2-million per season. If he gives the Flames 17-18 minutes a night, with a little bite to his game, then OBrien will be doing his part. The Avalanche Get: LW Alex Tanguay and D Cory Sarich. Since returning to Calgary in 2010, Alex Tanguay has recorded 145 points; only Jarome Iginla had more for the Flames over the last three seasons. Tanguay, 33, hasnt had strong puck possession numbers in recent seasons, but hes also done some heavy lifting, facing tough matchups and starting more shifts in the defensive zone, factors which contributed to his career-low minus-13 rating last season. A rare high percentage shooter, Tanguay has scored on 18.8% of his shots in his career, highest among active players and he scored on a career-high 25.0% of his shots last season. Moving back to Colorado, where he spent the first six years of his career, should allow Tanguay to play more of a complementary role, and while its not likely that he can score on such a high percentage of shots again, Tanguay could, playing with more talented centres, generate more shots on goal than the 1.10 per game he did last season, his lowest shot rate since his rookie season. Theres no reason to expect Tanguay to get better in his mid-30s, but its entirely reasonable to think that he can play a top six role for the next couple seasons. Hes under contract for three years and $10.5-million, so if he manages to do it for each of those three seasons, then that would be ideal for the Avalanche. 34-year-old Cory Sarich has been even more of a part-time player than OBrien, playing more than 16 minutes per game once in the last four seasons, including a career-low 14:52 per game last season, dressing for 28 of 48 games in 2013. Sarich is big, physical and has played 972 (regular season plus playoff) games in his career. Even though the Avalanche have major needs on defence, Sarich isnt the answer to those questions, so he likely fills the seventh or eighth spot on the depth chart. His contract, at a $2-million cap hit, expires at seasons end. Colorado gets a slight edge on this deal, in my view, because they save a little money and have a better chance of getting adequate production out of Tanguay over the next three seasons.

All teams qualified for the I-League should be part of the top league.No bidding and no franchise fees for existing I-League clubs, merit being the only qualifying factor.All governance issues should rest with AIFF exclusively.The statement added that Kushal Das, the general secretary of the AIFF, had agreed to call a meeting of all the other I-League clubs to elicit theirr views on the matter, and that he would revert back with a final binding proposal before July 31. Wes Horton Jersey. ?On June 24, Salgaocar and Sporting Clube de Goa announced that they had decided to leave the I-League with effect from the coming season over the AIFFs decision to restructure the national football league system. The AIFFs draft plan, made public last month, is to form a three-tier football system in India from 2017-18.The clubs called the AIFFs proposals shocking and disheartening and heavily biased against the I-League and its clubs. They said this would relegate the I-League to a second-tier league... despite the repeated claims made by representatives of AIFF and FIFA that the I-League was the premier league competition in the country.
