Despite a stunning late-season collapse that cost the Toronto Maple Leafs a playoff spot, general manager Dave Nonis believes Randy Carlyle is still the right man to lead the club. The Maple Leafs handed their embattled head coach a two-year contract extension on Thursday, while at the same time announcing that assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon will not be back. "It was important for us to make it clear that Randy has the support needed to move forward," Nonis said on a conference call. "He has done a lot of good things for us and we expect him to continue that with some new assistants." There had been rampant speculation that Carlyle would pay with his job after a disastrous end to the most recent campaign saw Toronto tumble out of post-season contention thanks to an embarrassing 2-12-0 finish. Instead, Nonis and new Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan gassed Carlyles staff in hopes that some new voices can help the 58-year-old get the most out of Torontos underachieving roster. "If youve seen it being done before with most of the same players, or a lot of the same players, and with that coach leading that group, I know it can happen," said Nonis. "I know it has happened with this group before. I know that (Carlyle) has reached them before, reached them at times this year. "For me its not that were guessing whether or not he can have success or he can get through to them. Weve seen it. I know that its there and we feel he is the guy that can get through to this group." Carlyle -- who led the Maple Leafs to their first playoff appearance since 2004 in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season -- had Toronto sitting second in the Atlantic Division this year before the wheels fell off in mid-March. "We feel that this group can continue to grow into a higher level of a hockey club," said Carlyle. "We just have to find and continue to push for a little bit more from the individuals and we are going to do everything we possibly can to change some of the things that are happening with our group." Despite calls from fans and media alike in Toronto for Carlyles dismissal, Nonis said he wasnt swayed by how the decision might play in the hockey-mad city. "If youre worried about optics in this market, its going to be a disaster," said Nonis. "I think you have to make a decision based on what you think is the best decision for the organization, and this in our minds was clearly the best option. "He was a guy we believe can get the job done for us. Whether optics are that its the wrong thing to do or not doesnt really matter to us. If youre looking at trying to please people, youre probably going to make some poor decisions." The Maple Leafs started the 2013-14 season on a 10-4-0 run, but Carlyle worried at the time that his team was getting away with sloppy play in the defensive zone. Going into and coming out of the Olympic break, the Leafs were rolling despite being badly outshot on most nights. When they beat the Kings in Los Angeles on March 13, they were in second place in the division. But starting goaltender Jonathan Bernier aggravated a groin injury that night, and though it was not considered serious at the time it proved to be devastating. James Reimer lost five straight and was pulled March 23 against the New Jersey Devils before Bernier returned and lost three more. The final night of that losing streak, March 29 against the Detroit Red Wings, was effectively the death knell for Torontos playoff hopes. "This hockey club has proven at times to be able to compete to a higher level," said Carlyle. "The consistency of our compete in our defensive zone coverage was the area of concern right from the opening month of the season. We harped on it, harped on it, harped on it, yet we were winning with it." Nonis made it clear that it was managements decision to clean out the assistant coaches. Carlyle had worked with Farrish since their days with the Anaheim Ducks, winning a Stanley Cup together in 2007. "Its a tough day and those are tough ones," said Carlyle, who also played junior hockey with Farrish. "The game of hockey is a great game, but the business side of hockey is an awful one. This is an awful day in our life, for our relationship between Dave Farrish and myself." Nonis said that Carlyle would be consulted on the new assistant coaches, but added the decisions will be a collaborative effort. Carlyle led Toronto to the playoffs last spring, but that run ended in disaster when the Leafs lost to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference quarter-finals after blowing a three-goal, third-period lead in Game 7. "I think that we showed for periods as a group last year and the year before that what the team is capable of it -- that we have the ability to compete with top teams," said Nonis. "Why we got away from that at times, I think thats something were going to focus on over the course of the summer to put some answers there." Carlyle replaced the fired Ron Wilson in March of 2012, months after the Leafs previous coach signed a new contract extension. He went 6-9-3 to finish out that season and then 26-17-5 in 2013 season. In parts of three seasons with Toronto, the Sudbury, Ont., native has a combined record of 70-62-16. Nonis said its easy to blame a coaching staff and management when things go south, but added that the players also have to take a lot of the responsibility for a season that went off the rails so dramatically. "Our players have to be committed to do the things we did the year before that made us successful. The blame has to be spread around all of us," he said. "I think that were going to come back in the fall and the players are going to know that this coaching staff is committed to doing the things that we need done to be successful and they are going to have to perform." <a href="www.scarpenikeflyknit.it/roshe-one-saldi.html">Nike Roshe Run Scontate</a>. -- Craig Anderson has quite a record against his former team, the Florida Panthers. <a href="www.scarpenikeflyknit.it/roshe-one-saldi/nike-roshe-one-x-yeezy-350.html">Nike Roshe One X Yeezy 350</a>.com) - The Carolina Hurricanes hope to remain perfect at home in January on Friday night as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to PNC Arena. www.scarpenikeflyknit.it/uomo-kevin-durant-kd-8-nike-ep-scarpe-arancioni-nere-800259-807.html. "Its not done, but its a huge step," Hannover general manager Dirk Dufner said. Poor defending allowed the visitors to score in the second minute, when Leon Andreasens header from Christian Panders cross sent the ball inside the far post. <a href="www.scarpenikeflyknit.it/superstar-supercolor/adidas-supercolor-rosa.html">Adidas Supercolor Rosa Chiaro</a>.

Raymond, 31, started 15 regular-season games for the Stamps in 2013, racking up 51 tackles. He also returned two kickoffs for 79 yards including a 61-yarder.LONDON - Boosted by Tony Romos return, Americas Team became an international success.Sidelined for one week because of a back injury, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback starred in the teams first regular-season game outside the United States, throwing three touchdown passes Sunday in a 31-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.We had to win this game, Romo said.Romo originally was hurt two weeks ago, fracturing two small bones in his back. He started in London to help the Cowboys (7-3) snap a two-game losing streak.Romo completed 20 of 27 passes for 246 yards against the Jaguars (1-9) and finished with a season-high passer rating of 138.8.The game was played at Wembley Stadium, the home of Englands national soccer team. It was the last of three regular-season NFL games this year in the British capital.The Cowboys have played outside the United States 10 times, but this was the first game that actually affected their record. With Dallas comfortably ahead, Romo sat out the final 6:42.Just sore. Anybody whos had anything broken before knows its uncomfortable at times, Romo said. A little banged up. A lot of guys are banged up. At the end of the day, no one actually cares once you step out onto the field.Romo threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten in the first quarter and then hit Dez Bryant for a pair of TDs in the second, the first from 35 yards and the second from 68.Didnt seem like he had any physical restrictions, moved around in the pocket, some subtle pocket movements to allow things to develop, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. He really looked like himself.DeMarco Murray ran for 100 yards on 19 carries and also had 31 yards receiving for Dallas. He had his record streak of eight straight 100-yard games to start a season snapped by the Arizona Cardinals last week.Bryant gained all of his 158 yards in the second quarter, and did it by breaking several tackles on each touchdown catch.Joseph Randle scored on a 40-yard run for Dallas in the second half on his first touch of the game.Denard Robinson scored two touchdowns for the Jaguars, running in from the 32 to give Jacksonville a 7-3 lead in the first quarter and then from the 1 late in the fourth. Blake Bortles, playing with a sore left wrist, was 22 of 37 for 290 yards with one interception.We kind of shot ourselves in the foot for two or three drives after that (first touchdown) and never really got it rolling again, Bortles said.The Cowboys took the lead when Dan Bailey kicked a 54-yard field goal, but Robinson briefly gave the Jaguars the lead with his touchdown run.Soon after, everything changed.Dallas and Romo again stalled on offence, but punnt returner Ace Sanders let the ball drop through his arms for a fumble, recovered by Cowboys safety C.ddddddddddddJ. Spillman on the 6.Murray ran for 4 yards on the first play. After a pass to Bryant was broken up, Romo found Witten in the end zone.That was the play early on that really swung the tide, Garrett said of the fumble. We played pretty solid football after that.The Jaguars picked up two more points on a safety in the fourth quarter when Cowboys linebacker Kyle Wilber was flagged for holding in the end zone on a punt. But that did little to sway the outcome.We played terrible. We played the way that a college team should be playing, Jaguars safety Johnathan Cyprien said. We know for a fact were better than that. The team knows that.Romo led Dallas to six straight wins and a 6-1 start, but he injured his back in an overtime loss to the Washington Redskins. With Brandon Weeden starting for him last week against the Cardinals, the Cowboys lost again.From the start on Sunday, Romo looked good but didnt seem 100 per cent. He overthrew a wide open Witten on third down on the first series, and then threw the short pass to Witten for the first touchdown when he likely would have run it himself without the injury.Romo, who has thrown at least one TD pass in an NFL-record 37 consecutive road games, was also well protected by the offensive line, despite the Jaguars having one of the top pass rushes in the league.He missed one early to Witten, a touchdown opportunity for us, Garrett said of Romo. But really besides that I thought he played a really good ball game, really looked like he saw the field well.Weeden, who is 0-1 as a starting quarterback for the Cowboys after last weeks loss, came on for Romo in the final minutes and played until the end as the fans emptied the stadium early.NOTES: Romo is now 25-5 in November, by far the best of any of his months. ... The players on both teams wore poppies on their shirts and helmets to commemorate Remembrance Day in Britain, the equivalent of Memorial Day in the United States. The little red flower is worn by many British people every year to honour Britains war dead in the days leading up to Nov. 11, the day in 1918 when hostilities ceased at the end of World War I. ... The NFL will play three more regular-season games at Wembley Stadium next year. The Jaguars, who are now halfway through a four-year deal to play in London, will face the Buffalo Bills on Oct. 25, while the Miami Dolphins play the New York Jets on Oct. 4 and the Kansas City Chiefs meet the Detroit Lions on Nov. 1.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL <a href="www.cheap--nfl-jerseys.us.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a>  <a href="www.cheapjerseysline.us.com/">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="www.cheapjerseystag.us.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="www.cheapjerseysleague.us.com/">Authentic Jerseys From China</a> <a href="www.soccercheapjerseys.us.com/">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="www.cheapjerseyssell.us.com/">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> ' ' '
