TORONTO - Six spots after the Columbus Blue Jackets selected Rick Nash with the first overall pick in the 2002 draft did then-Anaheim (Mighty) Ducks general manager Bryan Murray decide upon Joffrey Lupul with the seventh overall selection. Filipe Luis Brazil Jersey . That fall, at his first training camp, Lupul, still just a teenager, recalled the error of his youthful ways. Though the memory was hazy more than a decade later, he believes a there may have been a tussle of some kind with Shane Doan, also picked with the seventh selection by the Jets franchise seven years earlier.  "That was a bad call," said the now 31-year-old Lupul of the choice to fight Doan, laughing at the thought 14 years after the fact. Like William Nylander, the Maple Leafs top prospect, Lupul burst out of the draft with the highest of expectations, coming off a year in junior which saw him pot 56 goals in 72 games. But unlike Nylander, who is vying for a spot in the NHL right away this fall, Lupul was given no illusions about his future with the Mighty Ducks or where he stood at that point. He was going back to Medicine Hat in the Dub and that was that. "I dont think it was even a possibility of me being on the team," Lupul remembered. "I got to play some exhibition games and that was cool and I was going back to junior."  Lupul observed the NHLs evolution since that point, a stunning change under the cap system which has seen players as young as eighteen leap right into the NHL and contribute. Expectations of first round draft picks have really sky-rocketed, their progress – daily, monthly and yearly – picked apart by eager fan-bases, scrutinizing media and impatient organizations. The "bust" label gets thrown around a lot quicker in this landscape. "Its changed that way," Lupul said. "The league is getting younger and younger and theyre trying to get these prospects in as quick possible. But by all means if a guys ready and earns a spot he deserves it." And that will be just the question with Nylander in the coming days. Is he ready right now to be an NHL contributor or is he better served with further seasoning and development elsewhere? Much of the question will come down to his smallish build, which lacks in the way of noticeable heft or man-strength. Viktor Loov, a Leafs prospect who played with Nylander in Sweden last year and is also rooming with him at training camp this fall, says that despite Nylanders look, hes actually "really fit". "He seems lazy, but hes not," said Loov of Nylander, who just happened to stroll by, clad in a red baseball cap turned backwards. Nonetheless, Loov conceded that Nylander struggled some with the physical burden in the Swedish League, sometimes outmuscled by bigger defenders in the corners. As a 17-year-old – he turned 18 in May – Nylander mustered just one goal and seven points in 22 games on a Modo squad led in scoring by former NHLer Kyle Cumiskey. "Hes fast on his skates so when he gets [his] speed up he handles it well," Loov observed. "He doesnt play the same way as anybody else. Hes so skilled. He does things that other players cant do. Maybe people expect that everyone should do the same thing, but hes a different player." But can he do it at this age for an 82-game season and possibly beyond? Is he ready for the nightly battles, bumps and bruises which linger from September to April and test not only the body but the mind and spirit? Jumping from the second tier of Swedish hockey to the top league, as Nylander did last year, is one thing. Making the leap to the NHL is another. The speeds are faster. The competition is better. The players hit harder. A thick 20-year-old, James van Riemsdyk stepped into the league after two seasons at the University of New Hampshire. He jumped from 30-plus games opposite college kids to nearly 80 in the NHL opposite talents like Crosby and Malkin. "Its definitely tough," said van Riemsdyk, scoring 15 goals as a rookie that year. "It was the most games Id ever played in a season. I think the most I played before that was maybe 65 [games] or so. Obviously thats an adjustment and youre playing against the best players in the world too so mentally if you can just get ready for every night its a lot easier to be ready physically." "Hes got a ton of skill obviously," Lupul added. "Probably physically [he] needs to mature a little bit, but that doesnt mean you cant play." Beyond the physical and mental hurdles are challenges not so obvious to the eye. The details of the game – can he handle himself defensively? – are difficult to absorb at any age let alone as a teenager. Lupul believes that can some of that can be overcome with simple energy and enthusiasm, but then theres also the re-acclimation to an NHL-sized rink. "Ive been practicing on this ice for now a month," Nylander said, "so I dont think my thinking process will be a lot different." Nylanders skills are NHL quality; his bursts of speed, vision and creativity, ability to change gears, all that cant denied. "I think hes got some of the quickest hands Ive ever seen," van Riemsdyk said. "He can stickhandle in a tollbooth. He makes stuff happen out of nothing it seems like." To make the team Nylander will have to not only demonstrate his readiness, but oust one or two of the depth forwards (with one-way contracts) added in the offseason. And if hes landing a spot its likely in a prime position alongside some of the teams higher skilled players. The Leafs have and will continue to give him every possible avenue to succeed. Theyve paired him with Phil Kessel since camp opened last week, adding Mike Santorelli to the mix at centre for his exhibition debut Tuesday against the Flyers. In doing so the club is able to measure his abilities alongside high-end talent and opposite the evenings toughest competition. Nerves were noticeable for him against Philadelphias split-squad and predictably so. Henrik Tallinder, a fellow Swede and 35-year-old vet, tried to ease them as best he could beforehand. "He said before the game started," said Tallinder of Nylander, "what have I got myself into? I was laughing and I said thats a normal reaction for playing your first NHL game." "The pregame warmup I was just looking around and I was like this is crazy and then the nerves started kicking in even more," Nylander said afterward. "This is the first time Ive played in front of so many people. In Sweden we only get like 5,000 people to the game. It was a surreal feeling." Nerves pumping throughout his nearly 16 minutes, Nylander did manage to create a chance or two. He was robbed by a sprawling Steve Mason on a power-play in the middle period before breaking out with a goal in the 19th minute of the third. "I think he was an energetic, nervous, young hockey player," head coach, Randy Carlyle said following the 4-0 win. Noting the obvious package of skills, Carlyle also observed "some things wed like to see him change", including his awareness on the defensive side of the puck. But, he added, judging a player his first NHL game wouldnt be quite fair. "Any young player playing in his first game in the NHL is going to be somewhat nervous," said Carlyle. "Well really [have] more of a deeper evaluation of where hes at [Wednesday] night." Ultimately, theres no reason for the Leafs to rush. If Nylander isnt ready right now thats fine – they can also employ the nine-game window early in the NHL season. A year with the Marlies (less likely) or back home in Sweden will only help him develop. Neymar Jr Brazil Jersey . This week, they discuss the NCAAs revenue sharing, Don Zimmer, soccer language and Super Bowl 50. Fernandinho Jersey .“I always did my stuff ahead of the deadline. The best deal Ive ever done was the Darryl Sydor deal. We did that at the end of January in 04, and Syd was the missing piece. . Greece was on the wrong end of a 3-0 rout to Colombia in its first game of the tournament. They surrendered a goal in just the sixth minute of the contest, and despite some promising attacking play, failed to crawl back into the match. Japan, on the other hand, struck first in its match with Ivory Coast, with Keisuke Honda putting his side into the lead in the 16th minute.NEW YORK -- John Farrell is getting tired, tired of watching the Boston Red Sox waste opportunity after opportunity. The World Series champions failed each of the four times it had runners in scoring position, eking out just two hits while facing No. 5 starter Vidal Nuno and three relievers in an 6-0 loss to the New York Yankees on Friday night. "Again, the base hit with the guy in scoring position has been elusive," Farrell said. The Red Sox put runners on in each of the first three innings against Nuno (2-4), who gave up 13 runs in 9 1-3 innings over his last two starts, but came up empty in the sixth loss in eight games against New York this season. Boston is hitting .227 with RISP, a big part of the reason they are just 36-44. The Red Sox scored three runs or fewer for the 11th time in 13 games and losing for the sixth time in eight games. Fourth in the rugged AL East, Boston trails the Yankees, who entered the night in third, by six games. "I think weve got the right guys in here, guys who have been around and know what they have to do," Brock Holt said. "Its just a matter of going out and doing it." Brandon Workman (1-1) pitched seven adequate innings but allowed a sacrifice fly to Mark Teixeira and consecutive homers to Kelly Johnson and Brett Gardner. Workman allowed four runs, seven hits and two walks. He struck out five. "Little bit of a grind the whole time," Workman said. "I was constantly pitching with guys on." Brian McCann added a two-run homer off Craig Breslow in the eighth. In his first at-bat as a 40-year-old, Derek Jeter fisted a single to right field with one out in the first. His birthday was on Thursday, the Yankees final day off before playing 17 straight going into the All-Star break. After Jacoby Ellsbury doubled, Jeter scored on Teixeiras sacrifice fly for the early lead. The Yankees captain also singled in the fourth for hit No. 3,390 and went 2 for 4 in New Yorks second win in six games. New York manager Joe Girardi could have sskipped the struggling Nuno and given the ball to rookie ace Masahiro Tanaka because of the extra day of rest but, in a feisty pregame Q&A with media, Girardi insisted he was interested in protecting his entire staff, not just the Japanese sensation. Cassio Jersey. Nuno rewarded Girardi with 5 2-3 impressive innings. He yielded a leadoff single to Jonny Gomes in the second and a one-out double in the third to Holt. Nuno then retired 10 straight before walking David Ortiz, his last batter. "Ive had confidence in him but were in a situation where these are the five guys that we have," Girardi said. "Hes pitched some good games for us. ... He seems to always bounce back and give us a good outing." Dellin Betances, Adam Warren and Matt Thornton finished the three-hitter. Holt possibly saved a run in the second when he made a leaping catch above the wall on Brian Roberts fly to right field. But he could only watch as Johnsons two-run homer in the fourth went deep into the bleachers in right field, his first home run in 85 at-bats. "It was a good feeling," Johnson said, "to drive a ball like that but also to give us some more breathing room." Gardner connected six pitches later, giving New York a 4-0 lead. NOTES: Red Sox SS Stephen Drew snapped an 0-for-29 skid with a double in the seventh. ... Farrell said LHP Felix Dubront is being bumped to the bullpen. Dubront was not happy. "I have to stay positive and do my work," Dubront said. ... Boston OF Shane Victorino (strained right hamstring) and 3B Will Middlebrooks (broken finger) had setbacks in their rehabs. Both have stopped baseball activities and there are no timetables for their return. ... Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (right knee) will make his first rehab start Saturday for Class-A Tampa. Sabathia has been out since May 11 with degenerative cartilage problem in his knee. He will likely need to make two more rehab starts. ... Up next: a matchup of aces. Boston LHP Jon Lester (8-7) vs. Tanaka (11-2).
