Montreal Canadiens' Thomas Vanek (20) of Austria, and teammate Francis Bouillon, left, celebrate a goal by David Desharnais during the second period of an NHL hockey game against the Detroit Red Wings Thursday, March 27, 2014, in Detroit. In one day. So, before we look at where Thomas Vanek, Paul Stastny, Matt Niskanen, Ryan Miller and the rest of the 2014 NHL free agent class will end up come Canada Day, here are a few fun ideas about what $400 million can get you these days. That's enough cash to buy the Republic of Palau in the Pacific Ocean, along with a few other islands. You could grab a fleet of 20 new 12 seat Bombardier Challenger jets or build your own 100 kilometre stretch of four lane highway. Of course, there are also 400 million ways to potentially save the world, as well. But can that kind of money save NHL franchises? The recent history says no. For those with short memories, the early returns on last summer's big investments hasn't beenso good. David Clarkson scored five goals and 11 points in 60 games after signing his seven year, $36.75 million contract with Toronto and the Maple Leafs missed the playoffs yet again. Nathan Horton had only four goals and 18 points in his 35 game, injury shortened season after pocketing his seven year, $37.1 million deal with Columbus. Ryan Clowe? Seven goals. Stephen Weiss? Two goals each. There were some success stories from last summer Jaromir Jagr led New Jersey in scoring after signing a one year, $5.5 million deal and Clarke MacArthur established himself as a fan favourite in Ottawa after being given a two year, $6.5 million contract but there should be some alarm bells ringing, particularly for teams considering offering players lucrative long term deals. Year after year, teams acknowledge their multi million mistakes by buying out players who didn't come close to living up to their potential. On Friday, the New York Rangers gave up on Brad Richards. Three years ago, the Rangers won (or did they lose?) the bidding war for Richards, signing him to a nine year, $60 million deal. Only three years later, they're giving him more than $20 million to skate away. This time around, the unrestricted free agent group is a tad short on star power, but with thesalary cap expected to rise to somewhere in the $70 71 million range from the 2013 14 ceiling of $64.3 million, the marquee free agents and their agents recognize there could be a bidding war for their services. Starting next Wednesday, teams can begin the sales pitch for pending unrestricted free agents. In a new rule this year, are also allowed to talk openly about the type of contracts they're willing to offer. In previous years, only vague conversations about a possible contract were permitted. So, on to the list of high profile forwards. When the regular season ended, it appeared a slam dunk that Vanekwould end up with Minnesota. Vanek, who played university hockey in Minnesota, has long been a Wild target, but there's no question that his uninspired playoff performance with Montreal will cause the Wild and others to reconsider. After the Stanley Cup parade and celebrations were completed this week, the Kings began negotiations with Gaborik's agent. Ryan Callahan, who went to Tampa from the New York Rangers in the Martin St. Louis trade, would be a bonus to any team, but considering that his lofty contract demands prompted his trade away from the Big Apple (he reportedly asked for a six year, $39 million deal) he will be an expensive, long term signing. The other major factor which will play a significant role in where players sign will be the outcome of trades at or before the NHL entry draft. "I can't remember when there have been so many big names in the marketplace," new Canucks general manager Jim Benning said earlier this week. "There are more options." Eyes will be trained on Vancouver, now that Ryan Kesler's future there is all but over. Depending on the return for Kesler, Benning could have moresalary cap room to make a big free agent signing. Meanwhile, Senators general manager Bryan Murray is sorting through contract offers for Jason Spezza (hello, St. Louis Blues and Anaheim Ducks) and rumblings aboutJoe Thornton being dealt away from San Jose won't go away (Keep in mind that Thornton owns a no movement clause). After being bought out by the Rangers, Richards also enters the UFA market. With those four centres in play, it puts a twist on where the unrestricted free agents end up. Should St. Louis trade for Spezza, there will be no need for the Blues to chase Colorado centre Paul Stastny. Stastny could eventually land in Toronto, but only if the Maple Leafs opt not to sign existing centre Dave Bolland to a long term, Clarkson type contract. Just the same, Stastny's timing is impeccable. While Colorado says it wants to keep Stastny, the Avalanche organization talked this week about the need to maintain "structure" in its contract situation and the team is also in the midst of a difficult negotiation to re sign restricted free agent Ryan O'Reilly. Louis), he will become the centre of attention if and when Thornton, Kesler and Spezza are traded. Ryan Callahan, who went to Tampa from the Rangers in the Martin St. Louis trade, would be a bonus to any team, but considering that his lofty contract demands prompted his trade away from the Big Apple (he reportedly asked for a six year, $39 million deal) he will be an expensive, long term signing. The defence class is headed by several veterans, including former Canadian Olympian Dan Boyle. Whether he signs in New York, Toronto or elsewhere, Boyle will be looking at a contract for at least two seasons. Meanwhile, a pair of Pittsburgh products the offensive minded Matt Niskanen and the defensive oriented Brooks Orpik also figure to find new homes on Canada Day. The free agent goaltending situation could also be effected by trades next week. Louis out of the first round of the playoffs, he may have lost some of his potential value on the open market. Future Hall of Fame netminder Martin Brodeur could also be on the move. It was once thought that Brodeur was a New Jersey Devil lifer. Then again, people in Ottawa thought that about Daniel Alfredsson before last summer, too. Tim Thomas, Ray Emery and Darcy Kuemper are also available. So, too, are the J(h)onas Brothers: Jonas Hiller, Jonas Gustavsson and Jhonas Enroth. Add it all up and there is plenty of choice at every position. Yet considering the history of free agency, all the names should carry a buyer beware tag.

If you do, you should consider investing in a rotary trimmer which can make the process much easier. One of the best ones you can buy is the Premier HR10 StakCut from Martin Yale. Here are five reasons why you should take a look at this product. Check them out. 1.) It has an excellent cutting capacity. The HR120 has an excellent cutting capacity, especially when compared to other trimmers. This device can cut up to 20 sheets of 20 lb. bond paper at once, making it good for medium sized jobs. A lot of the other cutters on the market can only handle 5 to 15 sheets at a time, so that gives the HR120 an edge over the competition. 2.) It's easy to accurately align your materials. It's important to measure your materials before cutting them so that you don't accidentally trim too much. This trimmer has an alignment grid on its base as well as standard and metric measurements so you can make sure you're going to cut just enough. There's also an angular guide so you can cut on an angle if necessary. 3.) It provides great results and safe operation. You'll find it very easy to get an accurate cut with the HR120 because it's equipped with a cutting line that lights up. This feature will let you see where you're paper will be cut so you can make any adjustments before moving the blade. There's also a paper clamp will keep your materials in place so you won't end up with a skewed cut. As far as safety is concerned, the blade is encased in plastic so your fingers won't get cut. 4.) It can withstand frequent use. The HR120 is very durable so you'll be able to use it for years even if you cut materials with it everyday. Also, this trimmer looks very contemporary so it will look great in your workspace whether you're using it in a print shop, school, or office. It won't take up that much room either because it only measures 13" (width) x 22.5" (length) x 5" (height). 5.) It has an excellent warranty. Martin Yale obviously takes a lot of pride in this product because they've given it a limited lifetime warranty. It doesn't get much better than that. Also, this product is pretty affordable so it won't break your budget. The Premier HR120 StakCut sure is a great rotary paper trimmer, as you can see after reading the list above. This device can slice through a good amount of paper at once and it will will give your documents the clean edge they need every time you use it. Using this trimmer is far preferable to using a knife and straight edge to cut your documents, and you'll end up with better results as well. Take a look at the HR120 today so you can start trimming your documents with it as soon as possible.

Women Nike Free Run 2 Grey White Blue Black Quilted,Children: The Worst Target Audience Ever This may sound ridiculous to some of you but, children make the worst gamers ever. Sure, games are meant to be just games but gamers take them seriously. Despite what the rest of the world tries to convince us, we teat that shit like art. But, kids, they don't see it that way. They walk into Gamestop and demand the first thing they see just because it's shiny and new and they get bored with what they already have really fast. They treat a video game like they treat a Happy Meal You companies don't like to think about what you're doing with a game. You release your tie in games like a frat boy drinks, unrestrained and unregretted. Seriously guys, when you watch a movie or TV show and say "wouldn't this be really stupid as a video game" and then find out it already is, it's not a coincidence. The world really is as retarded as you imagined it was. 2. Remember: Video Games are not TOYS! Well, at least, not anymore, anyway. This seems to be the mindset that makes people disobey Rule 1. Video Games have evolved from being toys a long, long time ago. It is now considered and respected as a form of visual media. The Nintendo Game Boy being added to the Toy Hall of Fame is the last time you will ever hear video games being referred to as toys. So, back off merchandizers(or whatever it is you people in charge of that are called). It's okay for you to advertise through any other type of merchandize, but you respect the gamer world. 3. Not everyone can be a video game character. You guys seem to be under the delusion that if you try hard enough, anyone can be a video game character(I'm looking at you, Disney). Well guess what, it's not! Gamers(yes, I realize that casual players might want to play too, but, forget them) want to use a character we can easily step into their shoes and use their abilties to our advantage. Someone we WANT to be and will give us a sense of control and domain. But a certain company insists on making 'em based on characters who seem to be immune to the very concept of power, talent, or even model personality. 4. Know what genre the game is going to be. The genre is practically the most important part of the video game. It basically tells you what the entire game is going to be like. If you still haven't decided whether your game is going to be a hardcore bloody shooter or a family friendly party game, you know you must be doing something wrong. Yet somehow, licensed games manage to skip even that step. It's unclear what genre tie in games happen to be in. many of them resemble a combination of both a cheap platformer and a horrible action adventure. Though sometimes, these studios realize that it's not always a good idea to have their characters randomly smash their way through mindless AI for no reason. But even then they like to come up with an even more retarded solution: A crap colection of bad minigames. Not like those party games, I mean just nothin' but 10 or 12 horribly boring minigames. The kind you find at websites of kids TV channels that kids love to play because they still haven't found out that the internet can do other things. So, please just do something about that. It can't be that hard to come up with your own concept. 5. If you're Disney, just don't even bother. seriously, Disney, if it's not Kingdom Hearts, we don't wan't to know about it. Just stick to making feel good animated movies and believing that it was a good idea to premiere "High School Musical 3" in theaters.

Cr van de Ven said he would not approach his No.2 from 2008, Craig Taylor, whom he urged to form his own ticket if he wanted to stand. "If Craig stands he would have learnt enough to have his own ticket," Cr van de Ven said. "I need to move down a different direction. "He needs to try something different to get on in his own right." The council erupted again recently when it considered 11 code of conduct cases with Cr van de Ven lodging one against Cr Neville Hull. "The ratepayers can see who is making the right decisions for Albury," Cr van de Ven said. "I hope the media gives everyone a chance to stand on their merits and not with what has happened in the past. "But I know there is always going to be history with these things." Cr van de Ven has failed three times to become the mayor. Two years ago he lost a lucky dip draw to Cr Glachan. Harness racing and golfing identities Jeff Hogan, Chris Martin and Louise Briers also stood on Cr van de Ven's ticket four years ago. twice, photos, videoA century on and a sonar blip: has navy found WWI submarine?

Bunbury set to be home to state biggest film companyBoree Creek tragedy Communities rocked by Hunt family deaths Women Nike Free Run 2 Grey White Blue Black Quilted ABC News Australia via Reuters Rescuers respond to a fatal shark attack about 90 miles north of Perth, Australia, on July 14. A surfer was killed by a shark, bringing to five the number of fatal attacks in Western Australia in the past year. Following a record number of attacks this year, and retracting his earlier stand, the leader of a state on Australia's west coast announced Thursday that any great white sharks seen near beachgoers would be killed in order to prevent attacks on humans. "We will always put the lives and safety of beachgoers ahead of the shark," Western Australia Premier Colin Barnett told ABC Radio Australia. "This is, after all, a fish let's keep it in perspective." Previously, sharks could only be hunted if there had already been an attack on a swimmer and, even after a fatal attack last March, Barnett had ruled out changing that strategy, saying "the ocean is the domain of the shark and we go there with a risk always." But the state has now seen five deaths this year out of a total of just 12 recorded over the last 100 years. The new strategy includes more watercraft and helicopter patrols as well, but it was not welcomed by everyone. The Conservation Council of Western Australia called it a "guilty until proven innocent" approach, The Australian reported. The shark was believed to be at least 13 feet long. NBC's Duncan Golestani reports. "This may be the most reactionary and archaic response I have seen in my lifetime of shark study," added George Burgess, curator of the University of Florida's International Shark Attack File. "Such methods run totally in contrast to modern scientific thinking," he told NBC News, noting that "no evidence" from the 5,000 attacks on file suggest that sharks have become more aggressive toward humans. In fact, only two or maybe three of those attacks can even be attributed to one shark involved in multiple strikes. Western Australia's strategy, he added, "is particularly ill founded in that it involves a protected species an animal already acknowledged to be in trouble not only in Australia but in most areas of its biological range. "We're supposed to be smarter than the average shark," he said, adding that scientists know general shark migratory patterns and that can be used to better warn beachgoers and even close beaches ahead of time when needed. Great white sharks have been a protected species in Australian waters for more than a decade, but Barnett's fisheries minister last July suggested it might be time to review that. A great white shark attacked and killed a 33 year old diver in Australia, the fourth such attack in seven months. NBC's Annabelle Roberts reports. "I wonder if research might tell us that there are now much greater number of great whites than ever before, and maybe we should look at whether they should remain a protected species," Norman Moore told reporters. Burgess said any culling would further threaten the species. "It's sad they're going after one of the animals that can least take that fishing pressure" since it is relatively scarce in the ocean. More than 100 species of shark are found in Australian waters but most are not aggressive. The great white, tiger and bull sharks are considered the most dangerous. Great whites prefer the colder and temperate waters of Australia's south, while tiger and bull sharks are more common in northern tropical waters. Burgess said there is no evidence showing that sharks "hang around" beaches and instead they tend to follow migratory patterns in search of food like whales. "In the Atlantic, white sharks are prohibited from being landed by fishermen because of the status of the stock," she said. "NOAA is also reviewing a petition to consider listing the Pacific white shark under the Endangered Species Act."
