Steven Stamkos: Tampa Bay Lightning power play must focus on basics - Lightning vs Blackhawks - 2015 Stanley Cup Final SHAREShare with your friendsFacebookTwitterGoogleEmailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Western ConferencePacificCentralEastern ConferenceAtlanticMetropolitanLightning vs BlackhawksStruggling Lightning power play focused on basicsThursday http://www.shoppredatorsedge.com/petter-granberg-jersey, 06.11.2015 / 11:02 PM / By - NHL.com CorrespondentE-mailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Struggling Lightning power play focused on basicsCaptain Steven Stamkos wants the Tampa Bay Lightning to get back to basics on the power play and work harder to generate chances Ryan Johansen Jersey.TAMPA -- Captain wants the to get back to basics on the power play and work harder to generate chances. Center - TBLGOALS: 7 | ASST: 11 | PTS: 18SOG: 63 | +/-: 2The Lightning are 1-for-11 on the power play through four games of the Stanley Cup Final against the and have all of 12 shots on goal. Tampa Bay failed to generate a goal during a lengthy two-man advantage in the second period of Game 3 but managed a 3-2 victory. The Lightning went 0-for-4 in Game 4, a 2-1 loss.Tampa Bay and Chicago are tied 2-2, with Game 5 in the best-of-7 series at Amalie Arena on Saturday (8 p.m http://www.shoppredatorsedge.com/shea-weber-jersey. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).Tampa Bay was 16-for-72 (22.2 percent) on the power play through the first three rounds of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs before slumping against Chicago.Stamkos said part of the credit for Tampa Bay's power-play struggles belongs to the Blackhawks' penalty-killing unit, but felt that part of the problem is the Lightning's penchant for trying to make highlight-reel plays. They've got a good PK and they pack it in pretty tight. Guys are willing to block shots, Stamkos said Thursday. We have to find a way to get more shots to the net. We know we haven't scored on the power play at the clip that we wanted to during this Final. Sometimes you're pressing, you're not confident in taking a shot. We're trying to make that extra pass, trying to get a nice goal. Stamkos, who has yet to score a goal in this series, said the Lightning need to focus on getting shots to the net and traffic in front of Chicago goaltender . It's the old clich ; when things aren't going well just start getting pucks to the net, Stamkos said. We're just guilty of trying to make that pretty pass. And at this time of the season you'll take any goal you can get. Just simplify things a little bit; maybe we've got a day tomorrow to work on something, but it's tough because we don't have a lot of time with the whole group on the ice together. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said during his post-game press conference Wednesday that the power play appeared a little disorganized in Game 4. Like Stamkos, he noted the extra-man unit hasn't had a lot of practice time. We haven't really practiced, he said. Sometimes you can get a little bit out of sync. Did we have a couple looks on some of them? We did. We created some shots. Had some scrambles in there. I don't know if we shot enough. As the power plays went on a little bit, we tried to make the perfect play. But sometimes you score on them, sometimes you don't. When you lose by a goal, your power play goes 0-4, all of a sudden an alarm goes off.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson of Arizona Coyotes reaching Nicklas Lidstrom-like levels - 2015-2016 Season Preview SHAREShare with your friendsFacebookTwitterGoogleEmailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Western ConferencePacificCentralEastern ConferenceAtlanticMetropolitan2015-2016 Season PreviewCoyotes' Ekman-Larsson reaching Lidstrom-like levelsThursday, 10.01.2015 / 3:00 AM / By - NHL.com CorrespondentE-mailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Coyotes' Ekman-Larsson reaching Lidstrom-like levelsOliver Ekman-Larsson of the Arizona Coyotes grew up watching Detroit Red Wings great Nicklas Lidstrom, and the defenseman is fast approaching the levels of his idol.TORONTO -- They're everywhere in the NHL these days, young Swedish defensemen who have been influenced by , the legendary defenseman.Back when was at his best, most young hockey players from Sweden wanted to be like him, a forward. But then Lidstrom started collecting Stanley Cup titles and Norris Trophy wins and Olympic gold, and that all changed. You look around the League and see all the young [Swedish] defensemen, captain said. When you grew up in Sweden before Nicklas became the player he was, everybody wanted to be a forward. When he played his best, the most skilled guys back home wanted to be like him and play defense. Our best players are defensemen. Now there is in Tampa Bay, in Dallas, in Minnesota, in Anaheim, in New Jersey, in Nashville.There are also a couple dandies in of the and of the .Ekman-Larsson led all NHL defensemen with 23 goals last season, two more than Karlsson, a two-time Norris Trophy winner. Lidstrom had the record for most goals by a Swedish defenseman in a season at 20. But then Ekman-Larsson and Karlsson zoomed on by. Every D-man who comes from Sweden has watched him play, Ekman-Larsson, 24, said. He was my idol growing up and he's the reason I started to play 'D.' He was the best. He could do so many things. Yet, he kept the game simple. Ekman-Larsson has met his idol twice. The first time was a brief encounter on Nov. 8, 2010 in his rookie season at Joe Louis Arena.Lidstrom scored midway through the third period to lift the Red Wings into a tie with the Coyotes.Moments after scored in overtime to give the Red Wings the win, Ekman-Larsson skated over to Lidstrom and asked him for his stick. The Red Wings captain gladly handed it over, but signed it first.The next time Ekman-Larsson talked to Lidstrom was at the NHL All-Star Game in Raleigh, N.C., a few months later.Now, with Lidstrom joining and on the Team Sweden advisory board for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, Ekman-Larsson will get more opportunity to discuss the game with his idol. There will be so many things that I would ask him, Ekman-Larsson said. I think I'd like to ask him about his leadership in Detroit. I play with a good leader in Arizona with , but I'd like to hear [Lidstrom's] ideas on leadership. Unfortunately for Ekman-Larsson, he'll have to DVR Lidstrom's Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Nov Shawn Thornton Jersey. 9 because the Coyotes visit the that evening. He was an all-around player who kept it simple, Ekman-Larsson said. He was a good skater and above all he had an unbelievable stick. He scored a lot of points too. He had a good shot. It's a lot of things he does right. I watched him a lot and I tried to do what he did. It's not that easy, I can tell you that. I just like the way he kept things simple and made a good first pass every time. Though Ekman-Larsson makes a good first pass and has a better-than-average shot, he will play a bigger role for Sweden at the World Cup of Hockey than he did for the silver medalists at the 2014 Sochi Olympics Greg McKegg Jersey.Ekman-Larsson began the Olympics playing alongside Karlsson and played well in the opener with assists on Sweden's first two goals in a 4-2 win against the Czech Republic.However, Ekman-Larsson's ice time dwindled as the tournament progressed. Of the Swedish defensemen who played in all six games, he averaged a team-low 9:43 a game. Obviously, I wasn't good enough to play a lot, Ekman-Larsson said, taking the high road. When I came back from Sochi I learned from the experience and played well. Having that many good defensemen is a good problem to have. It's a good thing because you want to improve and be better than the other guys. Not many have been as good as Ekman-Larsson since the Olympics. His offensive production has been Lidstrom-like with a combined 30 goals and 58 points in his 96 regular-season games since Sochi.But the Coyotes haven't made it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs since their run to the 2012 Western Conference Final Nick Bjugstad Jersey. Ekman-Larsson hopes to help change that this season.He likes what he sees with young forwards and , and the improved depth on the third and fourth lines. I think we got away from our defending game that allowed us to go deep in the playoffs http://www.shoppanthersedge.com/quinton-howden-jersey, Ekman-Larsson said. We have to get back to that.

New York Islanders use Game 7 loss as motivation to take next step this season - 2015-2016 Season Preview SHAREShare with your friendsFacebookTwitterGoogleEmailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Western ConferencePacificCentralEastern ConferenceAtlanticMetropolitan2015-2016 Season PreviewIslanders motivated by lingering pain of Game 7 lossFriday, 09.18.2015 / 3:24 PM / By - NHL.com Deputy Managing EditorE-mailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Islanders motivated by lingering pain of Game 7 lossThe New York Islanders are using the pain of their Game 7 loss to the Washington Capitals in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last spring as motivation to take the next step this season.SYOSSET, N.Y. -- The were one goal away last season from advancing to the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 1993.But they fell short in their bid, losing Game 7 against the in their Eastern Conference First Round series. The pain is still evident, but the Islanders opened training camp on Friday with optimism and the hope this will be the season when they finally get over the hump. I don't think you'll ever get over it, captain said. It was really hard watching the rest of the playoffs and thinking about what could have been, and certainly an opportunity that we missed. Certainly it's a motivating factor and I think it helps you appreciate how hard it is. As good of a regular season we had, we were a point away from having that Game 7 on our home ice. It shows each and every day how important and crucial it is, and you really respect and understand what it takes just to even get where we got last year and how much harder it's going to be going forward Nick Shore Jersey. After missing the playoffs in 2013-14, the Islanders bounced back in their final season at Nassau Coliseum, winning 47 games and earning 101 points http://www.shopkingsedge.com/jordan-weal-jersey. They won what turned out to be their last game at the Coliseum in Game 6 to force a decisive game in Washington. But the Islanders mustered all of 11 shots on goal in a 2-1 loss.The Islanders open their season at Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Oct. 9 against the . Once it's over, it's done, right wing said. Obviously it stings for a while. You never really get over something like that; maybe when I retire. You kind of reflect on the year throughout the summer and you have to let it go. We need to wipe the slate clean. We had a good season last year, great. But this is a new season. We're looking to improve and to reach new heights. Several teams in the Metropolitan Division made moves during the offseason in an attempt to improve, highlighted by the ' acquisition of forward from the and the trading for forward from the Blackhawks.But the Islanders were rather quiet, other than signing backup goaltender http://www.shopkingsedge.com/dwight-king-jersey. The lack of movement doesn't bother anybody in the dressing room; the players are grateful general manager believes the roster is talented enough as is to win a championship. You look from top to bottom, from our team last year to our guys in the minors to a lot of our prospects in junior and college, how deep it is everywhere, just how healthy the organization is, Tavares said. That shows you can rely on a lot internally. We made a lot of moves last offseason. The ones that have really added to our team are guys right in their prime. It's up to us to take advantage of the opportunity. With the way the CBA works, it's hard to make a lot of moves in general. I think when you have a system like we do, you don't have to rely on that. Certainly we want to build on last year and we want to go far Jake Muzzin Jersey. That's the ultimate goal. The Islanders are counting on their younger players to take another step. Left wing scored 25 goals as a rookie last season, and versatile forward had 50 points in his first full season in the NHL.Strome, New York's first-round pick (No. 5) in 2011, said he's eager to build on what he was able to accomplish as a 21-year-old. I think if everyone steps up five percent or 10 percent in their game, we're going to be a lot better of a team, Strome said. Everyone gets better. It's not like we're the only team that's making improvements this year. Every team's getting better and every team is coming for us. But I think we showed last year if we play our game and take care of business, we can beat anyone. There's not really a team that pushed us around or really gave us too tough of a time. I think we can stand up to anyone, and we're all looking forward to the season. ---It's a huge milestone. I have to thank my teammates. It's hard to do by yourself in this league. It's a special moment for me and this team. Now we just have to keep going. Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin on reaching the 900-point mark with a goal on TuesdayTONIGHT ON NHL NETWORK

Ken Hitchcock agrees to one-year contract with St. Louis Blues - NHL.com - News SHAREShare with your friendsFacebookTwitterGoogleEmailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Western ConferencePacificCentralEastern ConferenceAtlanticMetropolitanHitchcock agrees to one-year contract with BluesTuesday, 05.26.2015 / 5:40 PM / By - NHL Bobby Clarke Jersey.com CorrespondentE-mailShare with your FriendsTo:From:Message:Hitchcock agrees to one-year contract with BluesKen Hitchcock has agreed to a one-year contract to remain coach of the St. Louis Blues.ST. LOUIS -- The will turn back to a familiar face and voice.The way general manager Doug Armstrong spoke Tuesday to announce that the Blues signed Ken Hitchcock to a one-year contract, there never seemed to be a doubt whether the 63-year-old would return to coach St. Louis for a fifth season.Hitchcock's contract was set to expire June 30. He and Armstrong took time after the season to reflect on certain issues, but each is comfortable with the other and seems fine with a one-year extension. I just had to make sure that the passion level that's going to be necessary in November, December, January, February ... the dog days of the season, that Ken still had that passion http://www.flyersonlineedge.com/claude-giroux-jersey, Armstrong said. I didn't want him to come back and feel that he was coming back out of anger and disappointment. I wanted him to come back out of excitement and energy. When we talked, I felt that. I felt that talking to him and I felt that talking to members of his staff that there's a real excitement in getting back to work here. Aside from the shortened 2012-13 season, the Blues finished with 100-plus points in each of Hitchcock's four seasons, including 109 this season. Hitchcock is 175-79-27 in the regular season with the Blues and fourth on the NHL's all-time wins list with 708, but he's 10-17 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with St. Louis, including three straight first-round exits with home-ice advantage. The Blues have lost four consecutive playoff series since 2012, when they defeated the in the Western Conference Quarterfinal.St. Louis' entire coaching staff will also return. This was a long process for me, Hitchcock said. ... It was very disappointing in losing, especially the lead-up to it when we were on top of our game, and having the ability to process that and go through it here in the last three weeks, it's given me some time to detox. Today was the first day we started preparing for next season Nick Cousins Jersey. It was an exciting day for me. I'm really proud to be able to coach this hockey club again. I'm really proud the staff is back together. This is unfinished business for me. I don't want to coach to coach. I want to coach to win. Hitchcock's status has been in limbo since the Blues were eliminated from the Western Conference First Round in six games by the . The Blues have lost in the first round in six games in each of the past three seasons.The Blues were granted permission by the to talk to Mike Babcock, whose contract was set to expire June 30, but Babcock signed an eight-year contract worth a reported $50 million on May 20 to coach the .Hitchcock and Babcock are close friends. You can't help but not do that, Hitchcock said when asked about following the reports on Babcock Claude Giroux Jersey. To which Armstrong joked, I was sending them to him. I don't care, Hitchcock said. The reason I don't care is that we have a relationship where we can tell each other pretty much anything, and there's no consequences. I know one thing: [Armstrong] keeps me informed on everything. Some of it I don't want to hear sometimes, but it's information that's necessary. After the season, Hitchcock said he needed time to reflect and decide whether he would return. He is comfortable going on a year-by-year basis. From a friendship standpoint and a coaching standpoint, from a relationship with players, this has been a great place for me, Hitchcock said. I just don't want to cheat them. I don't want to be signing on for a bunch of years that I know I can't answer the bell for. So for me, this is a perfect scenario. I want to take this group to the next level and Doug gets to decide the stewardship moving forward. Hitchcock was named Blues coach on Nov. 7, 2011, replacing , who is currently an assistant on 's staff with the . Hitchcock coached the to a Stanley Cup championship in 1999 and returned to the Cup Final in 2000. He also coached the and for four seasons each. Doug and I have been together for a very long period of time, Hitchcock said. We've got great communication and the ability to get this team back to the playoffs and back into that hunt again is first and foremost in both of our minds.

What is music? What is a song (track?). The popular culture and masses seem to have their own ideas of what these questions refer to. Most of the time, this comes from what they have been brainfed by the establishment and/or what their friends or peers consider it to be. Those of us on the Fringe or in touch with the infinite universe have very different answers and interpretations to these questions. Sound as Art and Sound as Sculpture. Is a verse needed? Is a beat needed? No, these are elements that may be used but not conformed to. There is literally an infinite sound pallet in front of you physically, digitally, and in your mind. Use it as you wish.

I've been thinking along these lines lately as well. Maybe in another context, but I think it's in the same area. In my day job as a graphic designer I'm always struck by how everyone thinks they are designers, but at the same time they think they aren't. After designing something it's inevitable that the client will begin request changes to color, placement, etc.
I think everyone is creative. I think it's human nature. It's how we make sense of the world, how we categorize and learn language and simply function. Unfortunately I don't think most people are "artistic". Their creativity doesn't explore outside the boundaries they've learned from others.
Most people's "creativity" lies in making things conform to what's accepted. It's always a struggle whenever I offer a change to some format. You always have to show how it's been done before.
Just a note Bryan, I've been having some weird problems with the Tapegerm player giving me error notices, so after trying to hear this a few times in the last few days, I finally did a "page info" to separate out the mp3.
Keep up the good work, CIII
