Even though the Sochi Olympics arent until February, it doesnt mean that Canadas quest to retain mens hockey gold hasnt crossed the mind of Jonathan Toews. David Clarkson Blue Jackets Jersey . The Blackhawks captain spoke to TSN on Wednesday at the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Classic golf tournament at RattleSnake Point Golf Club in Milton, Ont. Though there will be no on-ice drills at this summers orientation camp, Toews, a member of the team who won gold in Vancouver in 2010, acknowledges its importance as a first step to Sochi. "Theres a long way to go before they make up the team that goes out there, but I think a lot of it is just considering the logistics of what its going to be like with our team and families in Sochi," said Toews, one of 47 players invited to the Canadian camp. "It will be a lot different than we were in Vancouver, so its just kind of getting prepared in as many ways as we can for what its going to be like off the ice.” With some, including Mark Messier, suggesting that Toews could potentially be wearing the captains "C" for Canada in Sochi, the Winnipeg native says that the thought hasnt even crossed his mind and that the captaincy has to be the right fit. "If I ever happen to be in that position, hypothetically, as a captain or part of a leadership group on a national team, I think its something you take very seriously, but its got to be a natural thing," explained the two-time Stanley Cup champion. "Its very different than being in a locker room with the same group of guys that youre with months at a time with your club team back in the NHL, but you just have to bring that natural instinct of a leader that you would on your normal team and try to say the right things at the right time and make sure that guys are on the same page.” Some of those guys might not be among the 47 at the orientation camp later this summer. Toews believes that certain players who didnt receive an invite will use that as motivation this season and try to prove to the Canadian braintrust that they made a mistake and force their way into the set-up for Sochi. "Maybe some guys feel they got snubbed by not getting the invite," said Toews. "Theres a lot of guys who probably feel that they deserve a roster spot and I think with a good season they can probably find a way onto it, but for myself, I think you just have to focus on playing well and having a good season and making sure things go well with your team." Toews says he has kept abreast of the controversial anti-gay laws in Russia and plans for a potential boycott of the games. While the 25-year-old sympathizes with the sentiment, he doesnt agree with the idea of a boycott. "I dont think theyre buying themselves any friends [with the laws] by any means, and I think, obviously, a lot of people are disappointed by the attitude theyve had in Russia," says Toews. "I still think its important to go there and represent your country. You dont have to necessarily believe all the laws that theyve instilled in Russia right, so I definitely dont stand behind it." Toews hopes that fans and athletes alike can find alternative means to voice their displeasure outside of a boycott. "Im sure that there a lot of other ways that people can express their disagreement with the anti-gay laws in Russia right now and there will be ways to do that," said Toews. "Im open to that, but I dont think that not going to the Games is the solution because its a disappointment for everyone else.” Boone Jenner Blue Jackets Jersey . Cammalleri suffered a concussion in the Flames 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. The 31-year-old forward did not travel with the team to Carolina.

Ribery, who won UEFAs best player in Europe award for the 2012-13 season, helped Bayern Munich win the Champions League and Bundesliga and German Cup titles. Messi, winner of the last four Ballon dOr awards in voting by coaches, team captains and media, was injured late in the season and could not prevent Barcelona from being beaten by Bayern in the Champions League semifinals. http://www.hockeybluejacketsauthority.com/cam-atkinson-blue-jackets-jersey-c-8/ . -- Those impatient for the Stanley Cup to return to Canada will have just one team to root for in the NHL playoffs -- the Montreal Canadiens.CLEVELAND - Indians centre fielder Michael Bourn could be sidelined for one month because of a strained left hamstring. The team said an MRI taken on Monday confirmed a "mild to moderate" sprain and Bourn will miss at least three weeks. Bourn has had issues with the hamstring all season. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday. Cleveland manager Terry Francona said Bourn will be out "a little bit longer" than originally thought. The team hoped Bourn would return soon after the All-Star break, but the MRI results have changed that plan. "It was little more significant than Bournie hoped or we had all hoped," Francona said. "It shows hes a pretty tough kid. He wanted to try to play this weekend. It more looks to be three to four weeks. You dont know, but thats what they project." Bourn had surgery on the hamstring in October following his first season with Cleveland. He began this year on the DDL after having a setback in spring training. David Clarkson Blue Jackets Jersey Authentic. Bourn was pulled from Saturdays game against Kansas City after he re-injured his leg while scoring from second base in the eighth inning. "A lot of it will be determined by when we leave for the break, how he feels," Francona said. "If hes starting to be pain-free, obviously it will be a little quicker." Bourn said Sunday his leg was sore and that he was frustrated by the latest setback. Hes batting .267 with seven stolen bases and 37 runs scored in 66 games. Jason Kipnis will likely bat in the leadoff spot while Bourn is sidelined. All-Star Michael Brantley has moved from left field to centre. Bourn signed a four-year, $48 million contract before last season. Outfielder Nyjer Morgan, who played centre field when Bourn began the season on the DL, will seek a second opinion on his sprained right knee this week. Morgan was injured in May.
