unravelled. His knees led the roll

    导出博客文章What do you need to know about Thursday nights games? Joe McDonald gives us his
    take on the biggest and best performances. This is where we say, Morning,
    Joe.Great 8 debate: Washington Capitals Alex Ovechkin is one of the greatest
    offensive players of all time. The 31-year-old forward is closing in on 1,000
    career points: He has 531 goals and 444 assists for 975 points in 849 games. He
    scored the winner when the Caps beat the Winnipeg Jets?4-3 in overtime Thursday,
    finishing the night with two goals and one assist. It was the 91st game-winner
    of his career, tying him with Wayne Gretzky and Mark Recchi for 19th on the NHLs
    all-time list. Ovechkins statistics are outstanding, and the Capitals finally
    have the team to win. They have a Vezina Trophy-winning goalie in Braden Holtby,
    a strong defensive core and strength up the middle. With Ovechkin dominating,
    theres no reason not to win. But unless he wins a Stanley Cup, Ovechkins career
    numbers wont matter. The time is now for No. 8.Not sanguine about Seguin: Im
    still trying to figure out what type of player Tyler Seguin will become. A pure
    goal scorer, Seguin had a career-high four assists to help the Dallas Stars snap
    a three-game losing skid with a 6-2 win over the St. Louis Blues. The
    24-year-old highly skilled forward is a point-producing machine, already with 12
    points in 10 games this season. He recorded 33 goals and 40 assists for 73
    points in 72 games last season. Theres no doubt hes a dynamic player. His
    personality off the ice translates into his play and hes fun to watch. However,
    the second-overall pick in 2010 is fortunate to have won a Stanley Cup with the
    Boston Bruins in 2011, because its unlikely to happen anytime soon as long as he
    stays in Dallas. The Stars are an offensive juggernaut, but they have defensive
    deficiencies and goaltending issues, which are not qualities of a champion.
    Seguin is a younger version of the San Jose Sharks Joe Thornton: a talented
    player stuck on a team that cant win it all. Good thing Seguin won as a
    rookie.Marner garners respect: For all the talk about Auston Matthews,
    the?Toronto Maple Leafs?have another outstanding rookie who is fun to watch
    in?Mitch Marner, who scored twice as the Maple Leafs defeated the Buffalo Sabres
    2-1. The fourth overall pick in 2015 has three goals and five assists for eight
    points in 11 games. Marner, 19, is a major part of the organizations rebuilding
    process and possesses dynamic offensive skill and instincts. Hes very creative
    with the puck, the norm for all the young talent in the league these days. Hes
    really good in the offensive zone and has no issues going into the hard areas.
    He needs to get stronger and that will come as he gets older and gains more
    experience. Without a doubt, he will become a high-end, skilled offensive
    producer. In todays game, hell also need to become a consistent two-way player,
    but hes off to a strong start to what should be a solid career.

    hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against
    Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into
    the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons
    name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of
    damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when
    Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in

    . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the
    Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the
    travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey,
    that is. It is not clear where the style originated from, though there are many
    guesses. I always thought the inspiration for the hairstyle that captured the
    imagination of Pakistani males in the 90s was either David Beckham, the
    footballer, or Nick Carter, the singer from the band Backstreet Boys. Others
    have reached back further, arguing that Bollywood actor Rahul Roy was the one
    who influenced the likes of Wasim Akram to adopt the style. Either way, you can
    recognise it immediately - long hair parted in the middle and styled in a
    bowl-like way.In either case, the style was gradually usurped by others but
    never truly went away. In the late aughts, Bollywood icon Salman Khan
    reintroduced it in a cult film and it was perhaps that influence that shaped the
    hair Mohammad Amir would have in the year that he captured the worlds
    imagination. It was also the year that ended with him disgraced and on trial.Up
    until then Amirs rise had been spectacular, even by Pakistani fast bowler
    standards. He had bowled one of the all-time great opening overs, in the final
    of the 2009 World T20, bouncing out the tournaments standout batsman for a duck.
    He followed it up by bamboozling Australias and Englands Test sides with both
    swing and pace. And in between, he picked up Sachin in a tournament match.
    Akram, perhaps moved by Amirs hair as much as by his wrist position, anointed
    Amir as his successor while the latter was still in his teens.Five years later,
    when Amir made his much-hyped return, the hair was shorter and had a tint of
    (regrettable) red dye. At first, and particularly with the white ball, it felt
    like he had never been away. When he rattled India in the Asia Cup, it genuinely
    felt like Amir was back at his best. But when he returned to the scene of the
    crime for the England series, things felt different. Yes, he won a huge symbolic
    victory by finishing off the Lords win, but this didnt feel like the same
    Amir.The ball didnt swing quite the same way, and the length wasnt always on the
    money. He was no longer blowing batsmen away either - instead, Pakistans bowling
    innings would inevitably start with him being smacked for four. It was to Amirs
    credit that in the middle of this high-pressure tour, where he was seeking to
    redeem himself, he transformed himself as a bowler. Looking to fit into the
    #TeamMisbah ethos, he dragged his length back a bit and started bowling more
    defensively, cutting down on the runs given. It also didnt help that the
    fielders kept dropping catches off his bowling, making his numbers worse than
    they deserved to be.When Pakistan started the ongoing Test against West Indies,
    it soon became clear that Amir would struggle most on the desert tracks of the
    UAE. After all, this was a bowler who had made his name almost a decade ago on
    pitches and in grounds outside Pakistan, where he receiveed assistance from the
    conditions.dddddddddddd Each of Australia, South Africa and England had venues
    where he could maximise his gifts. As Amirs numbers continued to worsen after
    his comeback, it was clear that he couldnt be successful just by being the
    bowler he once was. And particularly out in the unforgiving desert, a new set of
    tricks was needed. It is here that one is reminded of a bowler whose career has
    largely served as a tragic counterpoint to Amirs. Junaid Khan came up around the
    same time as Amir, but he was never one earmarked for the future or hyped by
    legends. Instead, he only found his place once the spot-fixing clear-out made
    room in the squad.Unlike Amir, Junaid has played 18 of his 22 Tests in Asia, yet
    he soon mastered the inert surfaces of the UAE. Long before Wahab Riaz had
    popularised the mad fast spell in the desert heat, Junaid showed how pace can
    prosper in those conditions. Most of his time was spent bowling in unhelpful
    conditions, where he showed great intelligence in picking up his wickets. During
    those years, his one moment in the (proverbial, and not actual) sun came when
    Pakistan visited India for a white-ball series, where it felt like Junaid had
    made Virat Kohli his bunny.The 2015 World Cup was seen by some as the stage for
    Junaids ascent to the top echelons of world pace, but instead it was where it
    all unravelled. His knees led the roll call of fitness issues that undoubtedly
    were caused in part by being a desert workhorse. Already beset by injuries
    before the event, Junaid missed the tournament, and then the boat itself. Soon,
    the likes of Rahat Ali, Imran Khan and Wahab were ahead of him in the Test
    pecking order, and when Amir returned, he found a spot waiting for him right at
    the top. Junaid, whose only concession to Pakistani-pace-bowler hairstyles was a
    soul patch, already seemed a memory.Even if Junaid doesnt make a well-deserved
    return, there is much that Amir can learn from him. It is still unclear whether
    Amir can be the bowler he once was, but it is clearer that in order to prosper
    in Pakistans successful Test side, he needs to become the bowler that Junaid
    was. That would entail adjusting his lengths, his angles, and his approach. It
    would mean learning the tricks that Junaid, and Saeed Ajmal in particular,
    perfected - that of bowling dry and attacking after. It might even mean a more
    understated hairstyle, so that the unreasonable hype and expectations give way
    to a more grounded reality.One can only pray and hope that the desperate
    situation of Junaid Khan is reversed, and that he can make his way into the
    national side again. Before he does, there is a lot from his example that Amir
    can embrace and learn from. Cheap
