a Hurricanes, had 278 career goals and 1,0

Welcome back, Premier League football.  Weve missed you dearly.  The international break and EURO 2016 qualifiers meant we have been without our favourite league since the end of August.  Two weeks of misery, and more importantly reflection on the transfer window come and gone, leading to even more hype and anticipation for the debuts of all new signings across the Barclays Premier League this weekend.  Since no games have yet been played following a flurry of transfer activity, its still appropriate to dole out the grades for each club on their ins and outs through the summer window.  An incredible £835 million was spent this summer, shattering the previous record of £630 million spent in 2013.  It was a dizzying process, sifting through rumour and speculation leading to eventual dealing.  Call this a proper refresher on how your team and others faired in the transfer market.  The report card may be late arriving, but nonetheless fitting heading into Match-day four. Arsenal Grade: B+Net Money Spent: £46Key Players In: Alexis Sanchez, Danny Welbeck, Mathieu Debuchy, Calum ChambersKey Players Out: Bacary Sagna, Thomas Vermaelen, Carl Jenkinson (loan) The grade would have been an A if another top defensive midfield player was brought to the Emirates.  That miss aside, it was a very good summer for Arsene Wenger.  Sanchez fits perfectly in the Arsenal team, possessing pace and precision in attack.  Welbeck could turn into a coup, especially with Olivier Giroud out long-term.  Whether Welbeck can be a consistent finisher remains up for debate, but his speed will work well with all the talent on the ball.  Louis Van Gaals comment Welbeck wasnt up to standard for United was accurate.  Welbeck has a long way to go before being in the same conversation of the likes of Falcao, Rooney or Van Persie.  He will have every opportunity in the coming months.  A running start against Manchester City Saturday, coming off a brace for country is as high pressure an introduction one can have.  The pick-up of Chambers represents Wengers keen eye for the future.  He will be relied upon to replace Vermaelen over the short-term with no other suitable replacement brought in. Aston Villa Grade: D+Net Money Spent: £6Key Players In: Tom Cleverley (loan), Carlos Sanchez, Aly Cissoko, Philippe SenderosKey Players Out: Antonio Luna (loan), Karim Al Ahmadi, Marc Albrighton Paul Lamberts summer purchases leave much to be desired and are a clear statement of ownerships lack of financial backing in the team.  Its a bunch of projects, has-beens or never-beens brought to Villa Park.  Cleverley intrigues for what he was suppose to become.  A move out of Old Trafford was essential.  He has a lot to learn about starting and maintaining attacking football.  While the transfers mostly add depth, team success is more about what the up-and-coming players (Fabian Delph, for example) can become.  The summer acquisitions are nothing more than patchwork. Burnley Grade: DNet Money Spent: £8Key Players In: Lukas Jutkiewicz, Matt Taylor, George BoydKey Players Out: David Edgar, Chris Baird The Premier League newcomers were completely priced out of the market.  Numbers were brought in but nothing of true substance.  Canadian Edgar left his promoted club to remain in the League Championship.  Burnley is punching above their weigh in the top flight.  Burnley needed an out-and-out goal scorer and was unable to secure the service of one.  Its the price of doing business in the EPL.  This team isnt good enough. Chelsea Grade: A+Net Money Spent: £10Key Players In: Cesc Fabregas, Diego Costa, Felipe Luis, Didier Drogba, Loic RemyKey Players Out: David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Samuel Etoo, Demba Ba, Fernando Torres (loan), Romelu Lukaku, Marco van Ginkel (loan) Hats off to Jose Mourinho for continuing his meticulously build of a team to his liking.  That meant over 20 players leaving the club.  Mourinho understands what kind of player he needs and thus the great clear-out of 2014 ensued.  For a club that annually spends with the top clubs in the world, a net spend of just £10 is jaw-dropping.  No more excuses of not having any strikers.  Costa has taken the league by storm over the first three weeks, and Drogba and Remy are proven Premier League goal-scorers.  Fabregas is a coup: a significant upgrade over Frank Lampard.  The January signing of Nemanja Matic is almost like a new addition.  The only area with any kind of question is depth at centre-back, but quite frankly, most teams could use more at that position.  This team is built to win the league.  Crystal Palace Grade: B-Money Spent: £11Key Players In: Frazier Campbell, Wilfried Zaha (loan), Martin KellyKey Players Out: Kaigsho Dikgacoi, Jose Campana, Jonathan Parr The most significant loss may be manager Tony Pulis who left before a ball was kicked in the new season.  Pulis took a team seeming destined for relegation and turned them into one of the toughest to beat in the league.  Zaha is an astute pick-up, after having so much success at Selhurst Park in their promotion season.  The rest of the signings arent over the top, but add decent quality to a team thats success is predicated on team rather than individual.  Campbell upfront is an immediate upgrade.  This team should be improved. Everton Grade: BMoney Spent: £33Key Players In: Romelu Lukaku, Samuel Etoo, Gareth BarryKey Players Out: None Keeping Lukaku at Goodison Park was paramount: Mission Accomplished.  It cost Everton a club record £28 million but money well spent on a 21-year-old who scored 15 goals in 31 Premier League matches a season ago.  Samuel Etoo gives Lukaku a proven strike-partner.  Roberto Martinez wanted to reunite with Cleverley but refused to do it on Uniteds terms.  We will see if the team has requisite depth to deal with European competition.  They may be a player or two short.  Martinez is banking on internal growth and consistency in player and approach leading to success.  Hull City Grade: B+Money Spent: £25Key Players In: Michael Dawson, Tom Ince, Jake Livermore, Mohamed Diame, Gaston Ramirez (loan), Hatem Ben Arfa (loan), Abel HernandezKey Players Out: Robert Koren, Shane Long, George Boyd Steve Bruce had a busy window, and brought in genuine talent at the death in Ramirez and Ben Arfa.  The latter is a top Premier League player when focused.  Its a decent spot for the Frenchman to land: a place he will have every chance to play to re-establish his value.  Hernandez and Ince give a team lacking true attacking punch more of a genuine threat.  The sale of Shane Long to Southampton was pure robbery and shows how over-valued certain talent is in the transfer market.  The money spent is considerable for a mid-table club.  Progressing into the Europa League certainly would have helped the books.  It may be a blessing in disguise for this team to solely focus on domestic competition and avoid the trap of distraction. Leicester City Grade: BMoney Spent: £10Key Players In: Leonardo Ulloa, Esteban Cambiasso, Marc Albrighton, Nick Powell (loan)Key Players Out: Lloyd Dyer Big money (£8m) spent on Ulloa, expected to make a smooth transition from Championship to Premier League football, is a massive risk.  He has looked good to start his top-flight career.  We will soon find out what legs Cambiasso has left.  At 34, the Argentine is worth the risk for a team lacking true experience at the top level.  Strengthening down the spine is always advisable when making the jump.  The Foxes show confidence in their team that was hands down the topside in the Championship a season ago. Liverpool Grade: B+Money Spent:  £36Key Players In: Adam Lallana, Lazar Markovic, Emre Can, Rickie Lambert, Mario Balotelli, Alberto Moreno, Dejan Lovren Key Players Out: Luis Suarez, Daniel Agger, Martin Kelly, Andre Wisdom (loan), Pepe Reina After spending the summer buying up part of the successful Southampton team from a season ago, the biggest move unquestionably was losing Suarez.  Whether they have done enough to replace the top player in the Premier League is reasonable to question.  There can never be a true, straight-up replacement for Suarez.  It has to be done by committee.  Liverpool replaced one temperamental, unpredictable striker for another.  One hopes the signing of Mario Balotelli is more than just selling team kits.  Brendan Rodgers quipped Balotelli brings more trouble into the team, and he may not be far off.  The upside of such a signing is too substantial to ignore.  If any manager can teach Super Mario how to play proper football, its Rodgers.  Balotelli will have to learn to play with his head in an intelligent system with some promising talent.  There was enough brought in to Anfield to expect another competitive outfit.  How good they are may depend on how Lovren settles at centre-back, on the surface, Liverpool looks slow in this position.  Lallana and Lambert have much to prove whether they can make the jump and maintain top form at a new club. Manchester City Grade: BMoney Spent: £32Key Players In: Fernando, Bacary Sagna, Willy Caballero, Eliaquim Mangala, Frank Lampard (loan)Key Players Out: Javi Garcia, Jack Rodwell, Joleon Lescott, Micah Richards, Alvaro Negredo (loan) City was limited in summer transactions due to financial fair-play.  That being said, the team did very well to add in positions of need, which werent many areas to begin with.  Fernando looks a natural fit in the middle of the park, allowing Yaya Toure and the other attacking midfielders thrive within the system.  Mangala has the make-up of a top centre-back.  The Frenchman, alongside Vincent Kompany could form an imposing partnership at centre-back for years to come.  The only questionable play is allowing Negredo go out on loan.  It doesnt make much sense, considering the checkered injury record of Sergio Aguero and Stevan Jovetic coming back from an injury plagued campaign.  Perhaps Manuel Pellegrini is comfortable moving David Silva or Samir Nasri forward in attack in a change of system, if need be.  Manchester United Grade: AMoney Spent: £122Key Players In: Falcao (loan), Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind, Marcos RojoKey Players Out: Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra, Shinji Kagawa, Danny Welbeck, Javier Hernandez (loan), Rio Ferdinand Extreme Makeover: Old Trafford edition was an expensive one.  Sir Alex Fergusons rulebook for buying players was thrown out the window.  Louis van Gaal splashed significant funds on players who had successful World Cup campaigns and already in their prime.  None of that truly matters.  For a team that makes the most revenue in the world, it was time they started spending like it.  Whether it be out of desperation or coming to the staunch realization the development of young players at the club has been sub-standard, van Gaal had no choice than to invest, and invest quickly.  The squad is still flawed: a centre-back and maybe even another central midfielder is required.  But this team now has substantial talent to compete with the best.  When you have a chance to sign players as Di Maria or Falcao, you simply cannot say no. They are game-changers and among the best at their positions.  Shaw was expensive but is a move as much now as is for the future.  Herrera, Blind and Rojo have to prove they are of Manchester United quality, but each has shown signs they can be very good players.  United had the most impressive transfer window of all.  You get what you pay for.  Excitement coming back to Old Trafford. Newcastle Grade: B-Money Spent: £25Key Players In: Emmanuel Riviere, Remy Cabella, Siem de Jong, Jack Colback, Daryl Janmaat, Facundo Ferreyra (loan)Key Players Out: Mathieu Debuchy, Hatem Ben Arfa (loan) I like the summer signings for Newcastle, but the cloud of distrust and overall dislike for Mike Ashley, Alan Pardew and Co. has lead to a muted response.  Pressure is on the team to win now.  But like any team with new faces taking on important roles, it takes time for it to come together.  The team brought in some useful players.  The long-term injury to de Jong (thigh) delays any impact of his signing.  That being said, Riviere and Cabella have showed signs they can be players.  Its a big ask for new players to provide goals right off the hop. QPR Grade: B-Money Spent: £21Key Players In: Rio Ferdinand, Steven Caulker, Mauricio Isla (loan), Leroy Fer, Jordan Mutch, Eduardo Vargas (loan), SandroKey Players Out: Loic Remy, Julio Cesar, Stephane Mbia, Esteban Granero Harry spent money, but did he spend wisely?  The defensive unit needed improvement and Caulker does add to that area.  I just wonder about the mix of players at the club.  Proven Premier League names are scattered throughout the squad.  But is it the right mix?  You worry when a new team to the Premier League tries to re-invent itself over a summer.  Isla, Fer and Vargas are going to have to be key contributors.  Im a big fan of Mutch, however not quite sure he has the consistency that will demanded of him. Southampton Grade: A-Money Spent: £31 profitKey Players In: Dusan Tadic, Graziano Pelle, Fraser Forster, Shane Long, Ryan Bertrand (loan), Toby Alderweireld (loan)Key Players Out:  Luke Shaw, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren, Calum Chambers, Gaston Ramirez (loan) The summer started in panic will the sell-off of key players in the squad.  Supporters were questioning the methods behind the madness.  In truth, the club capitalized on sky-high valuation of their players: a good problem to have for any mid-table club.  The losses of Shaw and Chambers hurt, but the others are readily replaceable.  Southampton did just that, bringing in intriguing talents in Tadic and Pelle.  All Alderweireld does is win and the team upgraded at goalkeeper with Forster.  The biggest win was refusing to sell Morgan Schneiderlin, who has proven to be a physical force in the middle of the park.  All the while Southampton made a substantial summer profit.  With Jay Rodriguez working his way back to fitness, this is a team that should round into form under Ronald Koeman in the coming months.  New manager, new players, new energy. Stoke City Grade: BMoney Spent: £0.5Key Players In: Mame Biram Diouf, Steve Sidwell, Bojan Krkic, Victor Moses (loan), Oussama Assaidi (loan)Key Players Out: Ryan Shotten, Michael Kightly, Matthew Etherington, Cameron Jerome Hows this for a concept: replacing workmanlike players with superior talent.  Mark Hughes is slowly rebuilding the Potters from a team content to kick-run-defend into a team that actually desires to play football.  The transition takes time, but is well underway.  Its Hughes biggest challenge to loosen the reigns and allow his team to play.  Heres hoping Krkic, Diouf, Assaidi and others have the freedom to attack.  It all depends on how this team lines up.  Talent has been brought in and progress is being made.  Sunderland Grade: C+Money Spent: £10Key Players In: Patrick van Aarnholt, Jack Rodwell, Santiago Vergini (loan), Ricky Alvarez (loan)Key Players Out: Phil Bardsley, Jack Colback, Andrea Dossena, Ignacio Scocco Gus Poyet is swinging for the fences bringing in the likes of Will Buckley and Jordi Gomez to the Stadium of Light.  Poyets other summer signings make a lot of sense.  Van Aarnholt has made an immediate impact, standing out as starting left back.  Its time to find out what Rodwell can be, after having his career stagnated sitting on the bench at the Etihad.  Alvarez should be an upgrade on Altidore but is no sure thing.  Perhaps the biggest loss for Poyet is talented central midfielder Ki-Sung Yueng going back to Swansea after a successful loan-spell last season. Swansea City Grade: B+Money Spent: £1.5Key Players In: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Jefferson Montero, Bafetimbi Gomis, Lukasz Fabianski, Federico FernandezKey Players Out: Michu, Ben Davies, Michel Vorm, Alejandro Pozuelo, Chico Flores, Jose Canas The Swans have thrived off structure.  The players they lost were replaced with like for like.  Michu goes, Sigurdsson comes in.  Need more speed on the wing, here comes Montero.  Pozuelo and Canas leave, they bring back a better player in ball possession in Ki-Sung Yueng.  Not just that, Gomis has the makings of a massive signing.  Some believed it was cover in case Swansea lost Wilfired Bony.  They not only kept the Ivorian, but provide him with another goal-scorer to compliment his game.  The Welsh side made be a centre-back short, but there is a lot to like about this team.  Speed to burn down the wings, strong through the spine. Tottenham Hotspur Grade: CMoney Spent: £6 profitKey Players In: Eric Dier, Federico Fazio, Ben DaviesKey Players Out: Gylfi Sigurdsson, Michael Dawson, Sandro, Lewis Holtby (loan) It was a quiet summer at White Hart Lane after a spending spree a season ago.  Mauricio Pochettino seemed more focused on getting rid of players than adding to his squad.  Bounce-back seasons from the likes of Erik Lamela will go a long way to proving few moves were required.  It is somewhat surprising the club wasnt more active after being dismantled by Liverpool before the transfer window closed.  More moves could come in January if desired results arent achieved.  Size in the back was added with the towering Dier and Fazio.  The team is one of the biggest and fastest in the league. West Bromwich Albion Grade: C+Money Spent: £13Key Players In: Craig Gardner, Joleon Lescott, Brown Ideye, Christian Gamboa, Andre Wisdom (loan), Silvestre Varela (loan), Jason DavidsonKey Players Out: Billy Jones, Liam Ridgewell, Diego Lugano Aside from big money being splashed on Ideye, which raises some eyebrows, not a whole lot was spent revamping this team in need of improvement.  However, some useful pieces were brought in.  Gamboa, Davidson, and Gardner have their worth.  A motivated Lescott should benefit if he ever comes to the realization he isnt as good as he think he is.  That doesnt mean he cant be a true upgrade across the back four.  The team didnt lose much in terms of quality.  But do they have enough to avoid the relegation battle? West Ham United Grade: B-Money Spent: £31Key Players In: Cheikhou Kouyate, Mauro Zarate, Enner Valencia, Alex Song (loan), Carl Jenkinson (loan), Morgan AmalfitanoKey Players Out: Joe Cole, Matt Taylor, Jack Collison Valencia joining the attack after a promising World Cup suggested West Ham would win virtually every aerial challenge in attack.  The Ecuadorian can flat out jump.  Andy Carrolls continual battle with injuries has postponed that idea, most likely to the chagrin of tactical wizard Sam Allardyce.  There is something to this team.  The arrivals of Zarate, Song, and Jenkinson give marked improvement in important positions.  The squad is significantly upgraded.  The money spent demands it.  So does Big Sams job.  I look for this team to be much more difficult to beat. @WheelerTSNgareth.wheeler@bellmedia.ca Jimmie Ward Jersey .

Y.A. Tittle Jersey . Tampa Bay Buccaneers RB Doug Martin broke the news that hes cleared for full activity moving forward. DETROIT -- Doug Weight recalled his father putting him on skates at the age of 2 because he could barely walk due to a childhood condition that relegated him to wearing braces on his legs. "He started putting me on the ice to strengthen them at the suggestion from a doctor," he said. Weight said it wasnt a pretty sight at the rink in St. Clair Shores, Mich. "I looked like Forrest Gump," he joked. Four decades later, Weight was inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame. The Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time NHL All-Star was inducted Monday night at the Motor City Casino -- in the city where he grew up. "Its ironic," the Detroiter said. "Pretty special." Weight was honoured along with former teammate Bill Guerin, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, three-time Olympian and four-time All-Star. "Its very special, three different NHL teams and nine teams in all," Weight said about the number of times he teamed up with Guerin. "Its a pretty incredible run together. "Its icing on the cake to go in with Billy." Weight and Guerins wives and children have become friends over the years, going on vacations together and sharing holidays as families. "It couldnt have worked out any better," Guerin said. Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos, former college coach Ron Mason and Cindy Curley, one of the pioneers in womens hockey, also were inducted. USA Today Hockey Writer Kevin Allen was also given the Lester Patrick Trophy for outstanding service to hockey in the U.S. at the event. Weight and Guerin began their friendship before they were in the NHL and grew closer while playing together for the Edmonton Oilers, St. Louis Blues and New York Islanders. They also teamed up to play for their country on more than once occasion, including the 2002 Winter Olympics wheen they helped the Americans take the silver medal.dddddddddddd Weight, who won a Stanley Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes, had 278 career goals and 1,033 points from the 1991-92 season through the 2010-11 season. He is an assistant coach for the New York Islanders. Guerin hoisted Cups in 1995 with the New Jersey Devils and in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The native of Massachusetts had 429 goals and 856 points in his career that started during the same season as Weight and ended one year earlier. Guerin is a player development coach for the Penguins. Karmanos fell in love hockey when his children began playing the sport, but laments that a lot of kids cant afford to play the game. He said ice cost about $40 an hour when his children were growing up and now costs $300 for the same period of time. Sticks and skates, he said, also are much more expensive. "One of the things that holds us back as a sport is it costs too much," Karmanos said. "Were pricing a lot of people out of the game." Mason led Michigan State and Lake Superior State to national titles and also coached at Bowling Green. He also was an athletic director for the Spartans. "This isnt something you dream about," he said. "If youve put a lot of years in, like I did, as a player and a coach and of course AD, its nice to be rewarded at the end of it." Curley had a record 23 points in the International Ice Hockey Federations first world championship for women in 1990. "The womens game is way behind the mens game and it hasnt been around as long," she said. "We are all, as women, patient for the opportunities that the guys have had. The fact that the Hall is considering women is exciting to me. I know theres so many great players that deserve to be in here that will be. Im just honoured that they considered me."
