By Jim Alexander | [email protected] | The Press-EnterprisePUBLISHED: December 7, 2018 at 10:27 pm | UPDATED: December 7, 2018 at 10:27 pm ANAHEIM — It has taken time, and the Ducks have the battle scars from earlier in the season to show for it. But they seem to have developed an identity, work in progress though it may be. It’s not necessarily the one they foresaw coming into the season, when not only they but the entire NHL seemed obsessed with getting faster. But it’s one the Ducks’ marketing department should latch onto. “Blue-collar hockey,” Randy Carlyle said Friday afternoon, a few hours before the Ducks’ 4-1 loss to Carolina at Honda Center. “Good defensively, effective on our breakouts, win the special teams battle, create a strong forecheck, don’t play trade-chance hockey. Very simple.” Have we said it’s a work in progress? The Ducks, who hadn’t given up a third-period goal in six games, … [Read more...] about Alexander: Maybe Randy Carlyle coined a Ducks marketing slogan?

By Paul Gackle | [email protected] | Bay Area News GroupPUBLISHED: December 7, 2018 at 12:22 pm | UPDATED: December 7, 2018 at 12:32 pm DALLAS — As the Sharks continue their search for fourth line consistency, head coach Pete DeBoer is leaving open the possibility that the team could seek help on the trade market if things don’t change quickly. The phrase “rolling four lines” got embedded into the brains of Sharks fans shortly after DeBoer took over coaching duties in 2016. Four line play is central to DeBoer’s brand of hockey. But the Sharks have struggled to put that idea into practice over the first 29 games of the season, which could inspire general manager Doug Wilson to go shopping for his coach if the problem persists. “I think the ingredients are in our room, but we’re 30 games in now. We have to get that established consistently,” DeBoer said. “We have to be a four line team and we have to be confident in that … [Read more...] about Sharks could look to trade market for fourth line help
The Resnicks and Jerry Meral are leading advocates for the construction of the Delta Tunnels, a massive public works project that opponents say will destroy the Delta ecosystem and West Coast fisheries. Meral, in a moment of candor, infamously said in 2013, “The Delta cannot be saved.” Stewart and Lynda Resnick, the Beverly Hills billionaire owners of the Wonderful Company, and many of the same agribusiness interests that promote the Delta Tunnels are now funding the campaign to pass Jerry Meral’s water bond, Prop. 3, on the November ballot in California. The Resnicks’ Wonderful Orchards LLC has donated $100,000 to the campaign to date. The Resnicks, who are known as the Koch Brothers of California by activists, contribute many hundreds of thousands of dollars to candidates from both sides of the political aisle and to proposition campaigns so they can continue selling back public water to the public at a huge profit while promoting … [Read more...] about Big Ag billionaires Stewart and Lynda Resnick donate $100,000 to Yes on Prop. 3 : Indybay
Abbey Mastracco North Jersey Record Published 3:25 p.m. UTC Aug 14, 2018 The Devils signed a key young blue-liner on Tuesday, singing Steven Santini to a three-year, $4.25 million deal worth $1,416,666.67 annually, general manager Ray Shero announced. While many thought that the Devils would make an offseason splash by bringing in a pricey defenseman or trading for a big name, instead they’ve chosen to invest in a homegrown defense corps. “We are excited to lock up Steven, a young, developing defenseman, for the next three seasons,” Shero said, in a statement. “He provides size and a physical element that complements our existing defensive group moving forward.” Santini split time between Binghamton of the American Hockey League and the NHL last season, playing 36 games at the NHL level. He played 38 one year prior and scored two goals each season. The big right-hander logged more than 20 minutes of ice time at the NHL level but was … [Read more...] about How Steven Santini’s 3-year deal affects NJ Devils’ blue line
As then Senate pro Tempore John Burton said so well in a letter to the Planning and Conservation League on September 23, 2002: “Jerry Meral has a history of making money for himself and PCL by crafting Bond Initiatives that get special interests to support the initiative campaign in exchange for having their projects funded by the bonds.” Many of the same agribusiness interests, including Stewart and Lynda Resnick of the Wonderful Company, that backed the water bond of 2014 and are promoting the Delta Tunnels are now funding the campaign to pass Jerry Meral's water bond, Prop. 3, on the November ballot in California. Wonderful Orchards LLC has donated $50,000.00 so far to the campaign. The billionaire Resnicks, who are known as the Koch Brothers of California, contribute many hundreds of thousands of dollars to candidates from the both sides of the political aisle and to proposition campaigns so they can continue selling back public … [Read more...] about Resnicks, Corporate Agribusiness Fund Jerry Meral’s Prop 3 Campaign : Indybay
