Vince Biegel Womens Jersey . -- Tony Stewart is 20 pounds lighter and has a titanium rod in his surgically repaired right leg. PITTSBURGH -- Ray Shero left little doubt at the trade deadline, with the Pittsburgh Penguins general manager telling anyone who would listen his team was "all in" for the Stanley Cup after giving stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin accomplished sidekicks in Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow. The roster built to bookend the championship the franchise won in 2009 instead went bust against Boston in the Eastern Conference finals. Four games. Four losses. Two measly goals over nearly 14 periods by the NHLs highest scoring team. Exactly zero seconds when they held a lead. Instead of a ticker tape parade, the Penguins face a summer filled with question marks and soul searching. "You feel like with the expectations that we have on ourselves, that the team has for this group, no question youre going to look at this as a missed opportunity," coach Dan Bylsma said. One that could lead to significant changes on the ice and on the bench. Bylsma insisted before Game 4 that he didnt feel as though he was coaching for his job. But the sweep by the Bruins -- the first time Pittsburgh had gone out so meekly in 34 years -- leaves him just 3-4 in post-season series since leading Pittsburgh to the Cup four months after he inherited the job. Each of the previous three springs, there were reasonable excuses. A mild Cup hangover in 2010. Injuries to Malkin and Crosby in 11. A wild and emotional first-round loss to Philadelphia last spring that played like an anomaly. Not this time. The Penguins posted the Eastern Conferences best record during a lockout-shortened season and went 8-3 during the opening two rounds against the New York Islanders and Ottawa Senators. They averaged 4.27 goals -- the highest mark midway through a post-season in more than 20 years. And they received solid play in net from journeyman Tomas Vokoun, who went 6-1 in his first seven starts after replacing Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 5 of the Islanders series. Crosby, Malkin, Iginla and defenceman Kris Letang were among the playoff scoring leaders. They were heavily favoured to beat the Bruins, who needed a miracle to escape a first-round upset by Toronto. It never happened. Not even close. Bostons defence took away the swaths of open ice that allowed Crosby and Malkin to operate. Goaltender Tuukka Rask took away the rest. Pittsburghs lowest goal total over a four-game stretch during the regular season was nine. They didnt even manage a quarter of that versus the Bruins. Malkin and Crosby didnt collect a point. Letang was an ugly minus-7 and Vokkoun briefly imploded in Game 2. Kevin King Youth Jersey. Two more defeats -- though closely contested -- awaited in Boston. The season and the series fittingly ending with Rask stuffing Malkin one final time. "We scored four goals in two games. Its not enough," Malkin said. "Its my mistakes that I scored zero goals. Its not good for me." He was hardly alone. From Pittsburghs first shot of the series -- one from Crosby that clanged off the post -- the Penguins couldnt deliver when it mattered. "The timing in those big moments we need to come up with big plays, and we didnt," Crosby said. The fallout could be significant. Malkin and Letang, a Norris Trophy finalist, will enter the final year of their contracts in July, and glue-guy Pascal Dupuis is a free agent. It is a given the Penguins will do what it takes to retain Malkin. But Letangs sloppy play against the Bruins combined with the high price hell likely command and the shrinking salary cap make his future in Pittsburgh murky. Dupuis played so well in the shortened season (38 points in 48 games) he may have played himself into a new tax bracket. Even cloudier is Fleurys status. The former No. 1 overall pick, who helped lift the Penguins to consecutive appearances in the Cup finals in 2008 and 09, has now been knocked around in successive springs. His only appearance over the final two rounds came in two-plus so-so periods in relief of Vokoun in Game 2. When Bylsma had an opening to put Fleury back in the lineup for Game 3, the coach instead opted for the 36-year-old Vokoun. Fleury is making over $5 million a season. Vokoun makes $3 million less but turns 37 in three weeks. The Penguins were willing to ship away prospects and draft picks to rent Iginla, Morrow and defenceman Douglas Murray for a few months. All three will become free agents without the Cup they came to Pittsburgh to snare. Iginla spurned the Bruins for the Penguins at the trade deadline, only to see Boston block the future Hall of Famers shot at winning his first championship. While he was productive -- collecting 12 points in the first 11 games of the playoffs -- he also spent most of his time in Pittsburgh playing out of position at left wing. Its a role Iginla was willing to take for the sake of a title. Now he hits the open market wondering when his next opportunity will come. The guys he briefly called teammates will spent the summer wondering the same. "Obviously were a very good team," Iginla said. "We went cold at the wrong time."

ALAMEDA, Calif. Allen Iverson Jersey . -- Despite a productive training camp and lots of positive feedback, Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard spent cut-down day nervously looking at the time as he hoped to avoid a bad news phone call from general manager Reggie McKenzie or coach Jack Del Rio.I was looking at the clock like, `Man, its not 1 oclock yet and Jack and Reggie havent told me, Richard said Tuesday I was like, `No, no, no. I still got to get to 1 oclock. I was still nervous.The deadline passed Saturday and Richard received the good news. Despite being overlooked in the draft back in the spring when 253 other players were drafted, Richard overcame the odds and made the NFL as an undrafted free agent.He had some company on the Raiders, who kept four undrafted rookies in all on their 53-man roster with receiver Johnny Holton, cornerback Antonio Hamilton and defensive lineman Darius Latham also making the team. Oakland has 13 players in all on its 53-man roster who werent drafted by any team.I called mom and teared up, mom and dad, Richard said. I had to call them. Everybody has a story. I come from Alexandria, (Louisiana), small town, not a lot of people make it out of the city.Making it even sweeter is that Richards first game as a pro will come in his home state of Louisiana when the Raiders visit the New Orleans Saints. Richard said he has been overwhelmed already by ticket requests and will plan to get as many as he can for his closest family members.This will mark the first time Richard has been in the Superdome or at a regular-season NFL game.While Richard had a good inkling he would make the team after performing well in the final two preseason games and drawing frequent praise from coaches for his practice play, the news came as a bit of a shock to Hamilton.He was hoping just to make the practice squad when director of player development Lamonte Winston delivered the good news after the deadline passed Saturday.I was overwhelmed, he said. I just broke down in tears. Me coming from the place I came from, South Carolina State, small school. ... A lot of us we dont come in and actually make the 53 right away. Im very humble, very grateful to have made it.Holton also overcame long odds to make the roster. Holton got his chance to play in junior college after being spotted by a coach playing flag football in a park.After two seasons at College of DuPage in Illinois, Holton played his final two years of college at Cincinnati. When he had a couple of options on where to sign as an undrafted free agent, Holton picked the Raiders because he grew up as friends with star Oakland receiver Amari Cooper.Its not where you start, its how you finish, Holton said. Im thankful for all of that and ready to move forward.Latham, a defensive tackle out of Indiana, made an immediate impression on the Raiders and is expected to be part of the rotation at a defensive line position that is missing injured starter Mario Edwards Jr. for at least the first half of the season.Game notes QB Derek Carr, C Rodney Hudson, LB Khalil Mack and S Reggie Nelson were named captains for the team. ...

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The split between Olympic leaders and global anti-doping officials over the Russian doping scandal continues to deepen. Adam LaRoche White Sox Jersey .The World Anti-Doping Agency fired back on Monday, a day after IOC President Thomas Bach suggested the agency was to blame for the last-minute chaos over the participation of Russian athletes in the Rio de Janeiro Games.Bach said the agency should have acted sooner on evidence of state-sponsored doping rather than release the damning report by Canadian investigator Richard McLaren so close to the games, which open on Friday.While it is destabilizing in the lead-up to the games, it is obvious, given the seriousness of the revelations that he (McLaren) uncovered, that they had to be published and acted upon without delay, WADA President Craig Reedie said in a statement Monday.Reedie, who is also an IOC vice president, told The Associated Press that he wanted to set the record straight after Bachs comments by explaining the agencys handling of the allegations against the Russians.He seemed to use WADA as a diversion in some way, Reedie said. We thought in all honesty we needed to just explain the position and what we tried to do.WADA and Bach have been at odds since the agency publicly recommended that the IOC impose a total ban on Russias Olympic team following McLarens report detailing state-directed doping across more than two dozen winter and summer sports.Its unfortunately just before the games, Reedie told the AP. It was caused by very, very serious evidence of wrongdoing. There was little time to resolve it, and so it was likely to destabilize the situation.Asked about the divisions with the International Olympic Committee, he said: Most of us will get over this. Its all perfectly civilized.On Sunday, Bach defended the IOCs decision not to ban the entire Russian delegation, and said the IOC was not responsible for the timing of the latest WADA report, which came out on July 18.On July 24, the IOC placed the burden on international sports federations to determine if Russian athletes should be allowed to compete in Rio. More than 100 Russian athletes -- including the track and field team -- have been excluded, with more than 250 declared eligible by the federations so far.The IOC is not responsible for the timing of the McLaren report, Bach said. The IOC is not responsible for the fact that different information which was offered to WADA already a couple of years ago was not followed up. The IOC is not responsible for the accreditation or supervision of anti-doping laboratories.WADA, which was created by the IOC in 1999 to lead the anti-doping fight, and receives half of its funding from the IOC, issued a long statement defending itself.WADA wishes to factually clarify that the agency acted immediately on allegations concerning Russia when it had corroborated evidence and the power to do so under the World Anti-Doping Code, it said.WADA said it set up a commission headed by Dick Pound to investigate allegations of systematic doping made in a documentary by German broadcaster ARD in December 2014. The agency said it acquired new powers to investigate in January 2015.Pounds report, which was released in November 2015, detailed widespread cheating in track and field and led the IAAF to ban Russias entire team. Pound said he also found that doping in Russia was likely not restricted to track and field, and that Russian secret service officers were present in the Sochi and Moscow laboratories. But Pound said he did not uncover concrete evidence that the Russian government was manipulating doping controls.WADA said it acquired strong evidence of Russian state involvement in early May, when CBS 60 Minutes and The New York Times published allegations by Moscows former lab director, Grigory Rodchenkov. That led to McLarens investigation, which corroborated Rodchenkovs claims that dirty samples of Russian athletes were replaced with clean ones during the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi.Since then, WADA director general Olivier Niggli said, the agency facilitated the transfer of relevant information that is available to date about individual Russian athletes to the various international federations.Responding to Bachs swipe about supervision of the Russian doping labs, WADA said its focus is on the technical abilities of the labs. It noted that it suspended the Moscow lab in 2015 after violations were cited in Pounds report.Addressing corruption within the anti-doping system -- including state or secret service interference in laboratory operations -- will be one of the topics discussed during a WADA conference in September, the agency said.---AP National Writer Eddie Pells contributed to this report.
