ANAHEIM, Calif. Nike Air Presto Pink Womens . -- Forward Rickard Rakell agreed to a six-year, $22.8 million deal Friday to stay with the Anaheim Ducks.Rakell has 29 goals and 49 assists in 165 games for the Ducks, who drafted the Swede in the first round in 2011. He scored 20 goals for Anaheim last season while ranking fourth on the team with 43 points, emerging as one of the Ducks top young offensive threats.The restricted free agent didnt participate in training camp while technically holding out for a new deal, although he would have been unable to play anyway after surgery last month related to his appendectomy last spring.The surgery kept Rakell out of the World Cup of Hockey, but the 23-year-old is working out again in Sweden with hopes of returning to hockey before the end of October. He will return to Anaheim when his visa is acquired, and he is expected to play on one of the Ducks top two lines.I think its something we both agreed was common ground for the two of us, Ducks general manager Bob Murray said. The injury held us up a little bit. We wanted to be totally comfortable Ricky was going to be OK going forward. Hes over 200 pounds right now and hes skating.Rakells contract, which runs through the 2021-22 season, absorbs two potential seasons of unrestricted free agency.With Rakells deal complete, Murray can turn his full attention to re-signing defenseman Hampus Lindholm, Rakells fellow restricted free agent. Lindholm is still at home in Sweden, depriving the Ducks of an elite young blueliner as they begin their first season under returning coach Randy Carlyle.Murray had no progress to report on negotiations with Lindholms representatives, but he is speaking with them frequently.Theres lots of different things that could happen with Hampus, Murray said. Were trying hard to get that accomplished. Both sides are talking. We have no idea what that deal is going to be.Murray said he wouldnt necessarily need to trade another player to create room on his limited payroll for Lindholm. Defenseman Cam Fowler has been widely mentioned in trade rumors.Murray is less optimistic about the health of defenseman Simon Despres, who left their season opener at Dallas on Thursday night with an unspecified upper-body injury.Despres missed large stretches of last season following a concussion, and Murray clearly is concerned about a possible reoccurrence of symptoms. Despres didnt absorb any major hits before leaving in the second period.He was not feeling good last night, Murray said. Were trying to figure out whats going on with him. He had those problems last year. Something is wrong here, and weve got to get to the bottom of it.After losing their season opener, the Ducks play at Pittsburgh on Saturday, continuing their five-game East Coast road trip before their home opener against Vancouver on Oct. 23.Anaheim also assigned forward Joseph Cramarossa to its AHL affiliate in San Diego on Friday, a day after the Ducks claimed veteran forward Emerson Etem on waivers from Vancouver.Etem joined the Ducks on their road trip Friday, but his equipment didnt arrive with him from Canada in time for practice.

Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. Green Nike Air Presto . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. http://www.prestoultraflyknit.com/nike-air-max-97.html . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers.Former Rangers striker Michael Mols says it is crucial his former club are able to compete at the highest level, should they gain promotion to the Scottish Premiership. Rangers extended their lead at the top of the Scottish Championship to 14 points with a 2-0 win over Raith on Tuesday, and Mols is hopeful the club can be competitive if they can seal their return to the top flight.I think the most important thing is to compete next year in the Premiership, but it takes time, said Mols. Everybody knows that and Mark is building a new team, and from what Ive heard, he wants maybe five or six new players, so that also takes time to settle.Mols, who spent five years at Rangers between 1999 and 2004, also believes his side team can achieve success this season.Rangers face Premiership side Dundee on Saturday live on Sky Sports 2 in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals, and Mols sees no reason why they cannot win the tournament. Harry Forrester scored as Rangers beat Raith on Tuesday to move to within five wins of promotion Its in Rangers DNA to win trophies, and the expectations are always there. Now they are on a good run, and hopefully they can do itt this year with the Scottish Cup. Nike Air Footscape Magista Flyknit Black. Mols also played in a number of Champions League games for Rangers, including scoring a double in a 4-1 win over PSV in October 1999.But, under proposals to change the format of the qualification stages, it could potentially become more difficult for Scottish clubs to make it to the main tournament. Mols enjoyed a number of Champions League nights with Rangers, but fears Scottish clubs might not get many more opportunities under new proposals The proposed changes would see the champions route removed, which currently allows a path to the group stage for domestic title winners that have not already qualified.I see it as a big problem if its more difficult for the Scottish clubs to get into the Champions League, added Mols.The gap between the top of Europe and the rest will only become bigger, especially now with the Premier League getting so much money.
