Echoing Malone, Connelly sa - Postby liny195 » 10 Oct 2018, 09:52

Call it unreasonable expectations but more often than not Willie Snead IV Jersey , that apple falls far from the tree. Granted, yes, exceptions do exist and that holds true with some crop of players in the league, however, what many fail to recognize is how many rejections take place even before the NHL. In this article, you鈥檒l be shocked at the amount of children that didn鈥檛 make the NHL, while some are keeping the dream alive overseas or in the AHL. It might be harsh, but we can safely say that those on this list are talentless compared to what their dads were able to do in the league.

We鈥檒l feature a plethora of hockey children both past and present in this article. We鈥檒l also take a look at children outside of the game that either failed in other sports Customized Detroit Lions Jerseys , or just don鈥檛 hold any type of talent aside from looking good. I think you guys all know who we鈥檙e talking about without even naming the person. You can scroll down to number one on the list for the answer.

From Patrick Roy鈥檚 lackluster son who played forward in the AHL to Wayne鈥檚 son who tanked miserably at making the MLB, these are 15 talentless children of NHL players. Enjoy the article folks and like always, be sure to share it with a friend. Let鈥檚 begin!

Nuggets general manager Tim Connelly says contract extensions for center Nikola Jokic and guard Will Barton are among his offseason priorities and he hinted coach Michael Malone might be in line for one, too.

The Nuggets have increased their win totals from 30 to 40 to 46 under Malone but they extended their playoff drought to five years when they lost in overtime at Minnesota in the season finale this week.

”This is the most confident I’ve been in our core group since I’ve been here,” said Connelly, who’s been in his post in Denver since 2013. ”I think we have the makings of a team that can enjoy sustainably high levels of success.

”I think there’s going to be some pretty interesting financial decisions we’ll make this offseason.”

Jokic was drafted in the second round in 2014 and signed a three-year, $4 million deal a year later. The Nuggets have a $1.6 million fourth-year option, which they can decline this summer and instead give Jokic a max contract.

While that would crimp their budget next season Wes Horton Jersey , it would keep their star away from free agency.

”He’s a guy that’s been tremendous in how quickly he’s developed and a guy that we love and he loves Denver. So, the sooner we can get his signature on a long-term contract, the better,” Connelly said Friday.

Connelly also lauded the versatile Barton’s growth, and said, ”we hope we can get something done. He’s our guy. We love him and I think if he’s back in a Denver jersey, it’s good for both him and the team.”

Malone has a year left on his original four-year deal he signed in 2015. Although he wouldn’t commit to an extension for his coach this summer, Connelly made it clear how he feels about Malone and his staff Adidas Jack Eichel Jersey , suggesting it would be foolhardy to view a 46-win season as a disappointment or a fire-able offense.

”I think Coach and his staff have done a wonderful job,” Connelly said. ”We’ve got to continue to challenge each other. We’ve got to get better. This press conference is premature. We can’t keep having it after the regular season.”

In praising Malone, Connelly cited his 16-game improvement over two years and the development of the team’s core young players, emphasizing the difficulty in coaching a young team.

The Nuggets played better than any team in the West over the last dozen games and took a six-game winning streak into the season finale against the Timberwolves. That marked the first time in franchise history that the Nuggets had posted six straight wins against teams with winning records.

Yet, their inability to close out a seventh straight victory left them lamenting a dozen or so games they frittered away during a trying season in which free agent addition Paul Millsap missed 44 games and second-leading scorer Gary Harris missed 11.

”I thought 46 wins would have us firmly in the playoffs, in a pretty good spot,” Connelly said. ”I’m certainly disappointed we didn’t make it. … But as I reflect on the season and the growth that we’ve shown, I’m unbelievably proud of our team.”

Yet Marshall Faulk Jersey , he’s also running low on patience.

”I thought we had extended stretches of very good basketball. I think at times we had games that were inexcusable, and those games come back to haunt you,” Connelly said.

Echoing Malone, Connelly said this season was never a ”playoffs-or-bust” undertaking, but next season certainly will have that feel.

”I think we’re there,” Connelly said. ”How many times can you be the bridesmaid?”
