The St. Jose Canseco Athletics Jersey . Louis Blues brought in the premier unrestricted free agent centre, and did it without breaking the bank. Numbers Game looks at the Blues signing of Paul Stastny. The Blues Get: C Paul Stastny. Stastny, 28, has been a strong two-way centre, capable of putting up points and, more recently, taking on tougher assignments while remaining productive. Since arriving in the league in 2006-2007, Stastny has 458 points in 538 games, which ranks 34th. While his possession stats havent been dominant, it needs to be considered that they have been accrued in Colorado, where theyve been strong in relative terms, and hes among a select group of forwards to face quality opposition and start more of his shifts in the defensive zone, yet still have strong relative possession stats. Joining St. Louis is a terrific situation for Stastny too. The Blues had a contending team last season that could have used an offensive boost and Stastny ought to provide that and with last years top line -- Alex Steen, David Backes and T.J. Oshie -- capable of handling a lot of heavy lifting (tough matchups, defensive zone starts), Stastny should be freed up for more of an offensive role than the all-around responsibility he had with Colorado. Also working in Stastnys favour is that by moving to a team with much better puck possession stats, there will be more opportunity for Stastny to play in the offensive zone and if he ends up with rising young wingers Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Tarasenko (or fellow U.S. Olympian T.J. Oshie), it would be easy enough to forecast that line being very productive. Theres also some shuffling to do among Blues forwards, as they have signed C Jori Lehtera and that could mean Patrik Berglund and David Backes shifting to wings, leaving Vladimir Sobotka and Maxim Lapierre in the third and fourth-line spots. The team that Stastny is leaving, the Colorado Avalanche, will have their hands full trying to match their 2013-2014 regular season success, but the team does at least have options down the middle, with Matt Duchene and Nathan MacKinnon more than suitable on the top two lines, and they have Ryan OReilly (who shifted to wing last season) available if needed. Losing Stastny means tougher minutes for those guys, but the Avalanche at least have the personnel to withstand a loss at centre. The ideal part of this deal for St. Louis is that they didnt have to get into an outrageous deal in order to acquire the player who was clearly the best free agent centre on the market. Stastny wanted to go to St. Louis and was willing to take a shorter term than he might have made elsewhere. Signed for four years and $28-million, Stastny gets a raise on what he was making in Colorado, joins the team with which his father, Peter, finished his career and its not an unreasonable price for what Paul Stastny provides. If Stastny can thrive in an offensive role, hell give the Blues a legitimate chance to get into the discussion with the best teams in the Western Conference and thats all that can be asked from a contending team when they dip into the free agent pool.

Florenzi provided the cross for Mattia Destros opener 10 minutes in at the Stadio Olimpico then took a pass from Gervinho and found the target himself two minutes later with an angled shot. Florenzi celebrated by climbing over a barrier into the stands and running up several rows to embrace his 82-year-old grandmother -- drawing a yellow card from the referee. "Hell pay a fine but hes happy to," Roma coach Rudi Garcia said. "This is the beautiful side of football." Roma and Juventus, which won 1-0 at AC Milan on Saturday, are the only clubs to win their opening three matches. Prior to this season, the last time Roma won its opening three matches without conceding any goal came in 2007-08. "The stats are good. Were top on maximum points and were yet to concede in the league," Garcia said. "It was a good afternoon" Hellas Verona is two points back in third following a 1-0 win at Torino, where Artur Ionita scored in the 66th and goalkeeper Rafael saved a penalty kick from Omar El Kaddouri in the 87th. Milan and Udinese are three points behind the leaders. Udinese edged Napoli 1-0 with a goal from Danilo in the 70th following a poorly defended free kick. It was the second consecutive loss for Napoli, which finished third last season. Also, Inter Milan drew 1-1 at promoted Palermo. A defensive error from Nemanja Vidic gifted Paulo Dybala a goal for Palermo just three minutes in and Mateo Kovacic equalized for Inter in the 42nd from the edge of the area. Its been a nightmare of a start for Vidic in Italy after the former Manchester United standout was shown a red card in his Serie A debut. Fiorentina won 1-0 at Atalanta with a goal in the 58th from substitute Jasmin Kurtic, who scored with a long diagoonal shot that bounced in off the post.Custom Oakland Athletics Jersey. . Parma beat Chievo Verona 3-2 with two goals from former Italy forward Antonio Cassano. Elsewhere, Genoas Mauricio Pinilla scored in the 87th in a 1-0 win over 10-man Lazio, two minutes after Stefan De Vrij picked up his second yellow card. And Sassuolo and Sampdoria drew 0-0. In the capital, Garcia rested Francesco Totti following a 5-1 midweek rout of CSKA Moscow in the Champions League but Florenzi, Destro and Gervinho made up for the captains absence. It was the first goal this season for the 23-year-old Florenzi, and also the first time his grandmother Aurora came to the Olimpico to watch him. "I had never done that, not even when I was a kid and could have much more easily," Florenzi told Sky TV at halftime. "This goal is for her. She had told me, Ill come to see you only if you come to greet me. ... It was worth the yellow." Cagliari, coached by former Roma manager Zdenek Zeman, rarely threatened. Roma midfielder Daniele De Rossi exited late in the second half with an apparent lower left leg problem. In Verona, Cassano dedicated his performance to teammate Jonathan Biabiany, who is out indefinitely after doctors discovered a heart problem. Cassano had a heart problem himself during the 2011-12 season, when he fell ill with stroke-like symptoms on the team plane while with Milan and then had surgery to repair a small cardiac malformation. "I understand what hes going through right now," Cassano said. "We miss him as a player but above all as a teammate." Cassano was on Italys World Cup squad but has not been called up by new Azzurri coach Antonio Conte. "I think the national team chapter is over for me," Cassano said. "Its only fair that other players get a chance. Conte is very good but you run a lot with him -- a lot -- and Im not sure that suits me."Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
