VANCOUVER, BC -- It comes with the territory, but Willie Desjardins will face all kinds of difficult decisions as rookie head coach in the National Hockey League a€“ roster moves, in-game adjustments, heck, even picking the right tie to match his suit on game night. Andrus Peat Jersey . So on the rare occasion the coach is presented with an easy choice, you know hea€?ll jump at it. And that will be the case the first time Desjardins and the Canucks find themselves in a shootout to decide a game. Through seven exhibition contests and Wednesday nighta€?s 4-2 victory in Calgary in the Canucks regular season opener, Desjardins hasna€?t had to go through the process of selecting shootout shooters. But when that day arrives -- and rest assured, in todaya€?s NHL with so many hard-fought and closely-contested games on the schedule, there will be shootouts in the Canucks future a€“ the coach has an ace up his sleeve. Without a doubt, Radim Vrbata will be Desjardinsa€? easiest decision. The newcomer is fourth all-time in the NHL with 35 shootout goals to his credit. In fact, Vrbataa€?s career total matches the rest of the current roster combined and that means the Canucks will be depending on him to continue his mastery of the skills competition to help them pick up valuable points in the standings. Yes, you read that correctly. Radim Vrbata has 35 career shootout goals. The rest of the Canucks current roster combined has that same number. a€?Ita€?s just one of those things,a€? Vrbata says of his shootout success. a€?I cana€?t explain it. I just hope it continues here. When you look at it points-wise, every point you can get in a shootout is huge in the end. The last two years in Phoenix we missed the playoffs by four points and two points. Thata€?s two wins or losses. Every point you can get will be important.a€? Like Vrbataa€?s former team, his new club knows all too well the pitfalls of coming up short in shootouts. The Canucks won just five of the 12 games settled after overtime last season and of greater concern they managed just 8 goals in 50 attempts. Only the New Jersey Devils scored fewer shootout goals than the Canucks last season. And in the Western Conference where every standings point is a valuable commodity ita€?ll be one of Desjardins challenges to find guys who can rise to the challenge when games are settled in the one-on-one showdown. a€?It probably would have been good to get in some games to get some practice on it,a€? the coach says. a€?We have to be better in that area. Ita€?s something that we have to work at a little bit.a€? To that end, the coach put a hand-picked group of shooters to the test prior to a recent practice at Rogers Arena. In addition to Vrbata, he had Daniel and Henrik Sedin, Nick Bonino, Chris Higgins, Zack Kassian, Linden Vey, Brad Richardson and Alex Edler demonstrate their best moves. Higgins was one of only two Canucks to score more than a single shootout goal last season (Mike Santorelli was the other). a€?I dona€?t think it will necessarily be the same three shooters,a€? the coach says of his approach to player selection a€?It will depend on whoa€?s playing well. It will depend on a few things.a€? After Vrbata, Alex Burrows is the best of the rest when it comes to Canucks shootout shooters. The veteran is 12 of 32 in his career (37.5%) and is the only other player available to Desjardins to reach double-digits in shootout goals. In limited opportunities, Nick Bonino has had relative success scoring six times in 13 career attempts. One intriguing option for the Canucks is to give Linden Vey a chance in shootouts. A scoring machine in junior and in the minors, Vey has demonstrated an ability to make things happen wherever hea€?s played. And that scorera€?s touch has followed him to Vancouver where he had five points in five preseason appearances and added an assist in his Canucks debut against the Flames. He failed to convert in his only NHL shootout attempt, but says hea€?d welcome the chance to contribute in any way he can. a€?With the game nowdays, ita€?s key to be able to win those shootouts and we need to be sure we bear down in that aspect and thata€?s why wea€?ve been practicing it,a€? Vey says. a€?Ia€?ve got a few moves -- you always have something in mind. But I always like to read what the goalie is doing and go from there.a€? With just two games in the first 10 days of the new National Hockey League season, the Vancouver Canucks will have plenty of time to work on all aspects of their performance and that will surely include more time dedicated to shootouts. Willie Desjardins has no choice but to find guys who can make a difference for his hockey club. And shootouts are one area where there is plenty of room for improvement. VANCOUVER CANUCKS CAREER SHOOTOUT LEADERS Radim Vrbata 35/82 (42.7%) Alex Burrows 12/32 (37.5%) Nick Bonino 6/13 (46.2%) Alex Edler 6/23 (26.1%) Chris Higgins 5/21 (23.8%) Daniel Sedin 4/27 (14.3%) Michael Thomas Jersey . The Senators will put the busy off-season and training camp behind them when they open their regular season on the road. They kick things off Friday against the Buffalo Sabres and then head to Toronto to take on the Maple Leafs on Saturday. New Orleans Saints Jerseys . - The first sign that Kansas Speedway was going to be a heartbreaker for Hendrick Motorsports should have come during qualifying when Jimmie Johnson inexplicably spun and earned one of his worst starting spots since 2005. . According to a report from the Hamilton Spectator, Infrastructure Ontario has informed the City of Hamilton and the Tiger-Cats the stadium may not be ready by the June 30 deadline. MANCHESTER, England -- After 13 league titles, two Champions Leagues, 963 appearances and many more amazing memories, Ryan Giggs brought an end to his incredible 23-year playing career at Manchester United on Monday to take over as the clubs assistant manager. British footballs most decorated player made the announcement in an open letter on Uniteds website, just an hour after he was named as the No. 2 for new manager Louis van Gaal. "For me, today is new chapter filled with many emotions -- immense pride, sadness, but most of all, excitement towards the future," the 40-year-old Giggs said. Giggs will go down as one of the greatest players in the Premier Leagues 22-year history. He is certainly its most durable, playing in every season since the league inception in 1992 -- first as a flying left winger before refining his game to play deeper in midfield. His match-clinching solo goal in the FA Cup semifinal replay against Arsenal in 1999, where he set off from inside his own half, ran around three defenders and slammed a shot into the roof of the net, has gone down as one of the greatest goals in English football. His famous shirt-swinging celebration as he sprinted, bare-chested, along the touchline at Villa Park is also part of FA Cup lore. That will probably be his career highlight on a personal level but he was always more of a team man, one of the most valuable players in Uniteds successful, trophy-laden era under Alex Ferguson, who protected Giggs as a youngster after poaching him from neighbour Manchester City and allowed him to thrive. In an era where players chase money and loyalty counts for little, Giggs remained a one-club man after making his debut against Everton on March 2, 1991 as a lithe 17-year-old wearing a baggy shirt and hitched-up shorts. "I am immensely proud, honoured and fortunate to have represented the biggest club in the world 963 times and Wales 64 times," wrote Giggs, who never played in a World Cup but was a member of Britains squad at the London Olympics. "My dream was always to play for Manchester United, and although it saddens me to know I wont be pulling on a United jersey again as a player, I have been lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream playing with some of the best players in the world, working under an incredible manager in Sir Alex Ferguson, and most of all, playing for the greatest fans in world football. Marshon Lattimore Womens Jersey. " Giggs also won four FA Cups, three League Cups, one UEFA Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and a Club World Cup. Last season was the only one in his career where he failed to score a Premier League goal, leaving his career haul at 168 in all competitions. Ferguson, who retired last year, once said that Giggs -- as a 13-year-old -- seemed to float across the ground "like a cocker spaniel chasing a piece of silver paper in the wind," and that description remained true to his last days. Toward the end of his career, when his hair became speckled with grey, he relied on speed of thought rather than the speed of his legs, with his games carefully selected in Fergusons final seasons. Under David Moyes last season, Giggs was used sparingly with more of the Welshmans time taken up by his role as coach. His last game came at Old Trafford against Hull two weeks ago, when he came on as a late substitute to set up one goal and almost score another with a curling free kick that was tipped over the bar. After Teddy Sheringham, Kevin Phillips and Gordon Strachan, Giggs was the fourth outfield footballer to have played in the Premier League in their 40s. "Remarkable career by a loyal, legendary (United) entertainer," FIFA President Sepp Blatter said on Twitter. "963 games. 34 trophies. 1 club." Giggs is being groomed by United as a future manager and he had a brief glimpse of life in the dugout at the end of last season, when he took interim charge for the final four games. If his coaching career is even half as successful as his playing career, he will have done extremely well. "What he has achieved will never be equaled in the English game," United vice chairman Ed Woodward said. "In the way he played, he was the embodiment of a Manchester United player -- fast, skilful, entertaining and determined to win by playing exciting football."
