Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal The Barriers to Innovation

It’s hard to be an innovator. You have to come up with cool new stuff, make it work, and get people to use it. Not easy! Depending on your situation, there can be barriers, active and passive, to being a successful innovator. Lots of people in business and government love to talk about how they’re innovative, and how
Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal they foster innovation. Hah!
Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey.In all too many cases, what they actually do is build and sustain barriers so strong and so high that innovation is nearly impossible.

If you look at my earlier posts on innovation, you may think that I’m a cynic. The reality is that I’m an enthusiastic, life-long believer in innovation. My sarcasm is targeted exclusively at the hollow, creativity-killing rhetoric that too often passes for support for innovation.

Active barriers to innovation

What about big companies who innovate? That’s most rumor and self-promotion,Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Away White Alternate Captain Patch NHL Jersey,rarely a reality.

What if you’re a small company trying to innovate? The barriers are mostly put
Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey up by the large businesses that dominate the field in which you want to innovate.

Will the big business itself innovate? In spite of all the talk, probably not. It’s likely they want to be seen as modern, with it and innovative. It’s highly unlikely that they actually want change. This post goes into some detail about the reality behind giant companies that supposedly are great innovators. Why can’t big companies innovate? Who knows, but I think the attitude of the pointy-haired boss is a hint:

There is lots of information and a few stories about how to out-fox the giants that want to keep you down in my book on building a growing business from a startup. But it’s tough. The big guys hold most of the cards.

Passive barriers to innovation

Governments are the main source of “passive” barriers to innovation. The barriers are usually in the form of regulations — regulations that can quickly morph into active barriers once you get caught in the cross hairs of one of these innovation-killing agencies.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Home Red A Patch Hockey Jersey.

You think those regulations are no big deal? The current code of federal regulations is massive, and getting bigger every day. Here’s a quick glance at its
Custom Canadiens Jersey size:

 Of course, no government agency will ever admit that what they are doing is preventing innovation. They are protecting consumers! Enforcing fairness! Doing good stuff, the peoples’ business! That’s what they say. Sometimes it’s even true. But in most cases, what they are really doing is protecting existing businesses and professionals from competition. They do this by putting increasingly burdensome and expensive barriers to new products and services entering the market, and competing with the establishment.

Regulatory barriers to innovation are everywhere, in nearly every industry. Why isn’t there a huge outcry? Simple:

  • The companies and people that are on the “inside,” benefiting from the barriers, vociferously support “protecting consumers” or whatever the b.s. cover story is.
  • The people who would benefit from the innovation don’t see the innovations, because they don’t exist yet, and so can’t really lobby against the barriers.
  • It’s just the way things are. Who has the energy to “fight City Hall,” particularly when the innovative benefits don’t exist yet because of the barriers?!

The barriers are everywhere, preventing innovation or worsening convenience and price. The barriers are in old, tangible things like a store being able to sell liquor or a car company being able to sell its cars. More importantly, they’re in newer, life-issue things like nearly every aspect of healthcare.

Barriers to innovation in healthcare are massive, and getting worse. The barriers aren’t called that, of course. The government agencies are protecting our health and privacy! But when you lift the covers, it is easy to see that what is really going on is a rapidly metastasizing federal bureaucracy that prevents life-enhancing products and drugs from being invented, and massively increasing the cost and slowing down the relatively few innovations that squeeze through the gauntlet.

Conclusion

We’re clearly in the middle of an innovation bubble. Everyone says they want it. Companies and government agencies claim to be fostering and promoting it. I’m
Tomas Plekanec Jersey someone who has worked in the innovation trenches for
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Stitched Away White Ice Hockey Jersey decades. I try to innovate myself, and help others to do it. It’s not easy. That’s why I get so cynical about all these innovation-smothering institutions who are so loudly in favor of innovation. Their words say one thing and their actions say another. All their innovation amounts to is a pile of marketing rhetoric, an attempt to make themselves appear to be modern.

Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal Kyle Connor could land with Jets at 19

PENTICTON, British Columbia — If expectations surrounding Winnipeg Jets forward prospect Kyle Connorare high heading into his first NHL training camp,
Maillot Tomas Plekanec des Canadiens de Montreal general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff isn’t going to be the one applying the pressure.Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey.

He’s treating the No. 17 pick in the 2015 NHL Draft the same way he would any other prospect, regardless of resume.Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Away White Alternate Captain Patch NHL Jersey.

“From our standpoint, he’s just like any other player out there,” Cheveldayoff said. “I think everybody from a playing standpoint wants to push themselves.
Tomas Plekanec Youth Jersey They want to try to earn that spot every single day. You just have to realize that it is a process, certainly, for players like him.”

But there are few like Connor, based on his body of work to date.

As a freshman at the University of Michigan last season, Connor (6-feet-1, 176 pounds) was the nation’s top scorer with 71 points (35 goals, 36 assists). He also led the NCAA in goals per game (0.92), points per game (1.87) and tied for first with 24 power-play points.

Connor finished the season with a school-record 27-game point streak and won the 2016 Tim Taylor Award, given annually to the best rookie in NCAA Division I hockey. He also was a top-three finalist for the 2016 Hobey Baker Memorial
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Home Red A Patch Hockey Jersey Award, won by forward Jimmy Vesey of Harvard, now with the New York Rangers.

Connor, 19, matched the 71 points (26 goals, 45 assists) Buffalo Sabres forward Jack Eichel scored for Boston University in 2014-15. Only Paul Kariya totaled
Custom Canadiens Jersey more points as a freshman; he had 100 (25 goals, 75 assists) for Maine in 1992-93.

Not a bad start for Connor, and enough for him to opt not to return as a sophomore.

“I want to be the best player I can,” said Connor, who signed his entry-level contract with the Jets in April. “Turning pro was that option for me.

“It was a tough decision. A lot of things come into play. The ultimate for me was that it was the best thing for my development. I think I’m ready for that next step to try to jump to the NHL. A little bit goes into play. I think also for me, it goes back to development.

“It’s obviously going to be a tough transition. The way I play, I think, translates
Tomas Plekanec Jersey well to the NHL game, and I think that will help me with the transition.”Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 14 Tomas Plekanec Authentic Stitched Away White Ice Hockey Jersey.

The Jets have plenty of players who can help Connor with the adjustment.

Milestone XProtect 2016 R3 Advanced VMS announced

Milestone Systems, the open platform company in networked video management software (VMS), is announcing a new version of the market-leading XProtect VMS product suite for partners and customers.

XProtect 2016 R3 marks the third release of Milestone’s award-winning VMS in 2016. Milestone’s commitment to bi-monthly device pack releases supporting third-party Home Security Camera interoperability, in addition to the multiple VMS releases, makes this release schedule an industry beacon to the power of true open platform software.

Partners in focus

XProtect 2016 R3 Advanced VMS has numerous enhancements, primarily developed based on feedback from the partner community. Milestone’s ongoing commitment to the partner community is to maximize the business value of video management ip cctv system for partners and customers. The rapid development cycle enables Milestone to fulfill market needs and partner demands, rapidly keeping the Milestone community agile and responsive.

Innovative video storage handling can save more than 80% in disk activity

In order to minimize disk load for recording servers, Milestone has developed a new strategy for storing video in RAM before committing recordings to disk. By fully utilizing the large RAM capacity in modern servers, recorded video is kept in RAM until the VMS determines the video needs to be written to slower mechanical disks. In systems not using this technology the video is always written to disk regardless of whether it is necessary. Initial testing shows the savings in disk activity can be up to 80% and even more in scenarios with little or no motion. Reduction in disk activity enables the recording server to handle more Infrared Security Cameras, be more resilient and run cooler. Because disk load is reduced, less expensive disk drives can be used. The wear of the disk drives are then prolonged reducing maintenance costs.

Designed for low bandwidth camera networks

The new intelligent use of local storage in cameras supports the rising demands for cameras used in low bandwidth scenarios. This can be wearable cameras, ad-hoc installations, IP CCTV Camera used in vehicles, trains and planes. The limited bandwidth in mobile networks often restricts these types of cameras to sending low-resolution video, making accurate situational investigation difficult. The new Milestone feature, SVQR – Scalable Video Quality Recording, changes this.

With SVQR a low bandwidth connection can be used to send low resolution video to a command center for real time situational awareness. When the cameras are connected to a high bandwidth network, high quality recordings from the external ip camera’ local storage can be retrieved by XProtect 2016 R3 Advanced VMS by event, schedule or manually. This means that SVQR improves evidence investigation as well as real-time situational awareness, providing added value to the Milestone community.

Patrick Roy Jersey In a first for Middle East politics, Christians and Islamists stump together

Akef Smeirat is doing something no other Christian candidate in Jordan has done:
Patrick Roy Jersey he’s running with Islamists.

“Today we need to stop talking about divisions, Islamist and leftist, tribe versus tribe,” Mr. Smeirat told residents of this Christian village who gathered recently
Women’s Authentic Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price 2016 Winter Classic White Jersey in a tent overlooking rolling olive orchards on the outskirts of Amman. “We need the efforts of all Jordanians, Muslims and Christians, hand-in-hand, to build a better Jordan.”

Ismael Abu Rumman, a Muslim candidate from the nearby town of Salt, chimed in.

“We are one team, one message and one voice – we want to reform Jordan,” said
Custom Canadiens Jersey Mr. Abu Rumman, as he campaigned in Fuheis alongside Smeirat. The two men are among 130 candidates that the Islamic Action Front (IAF) is fielding in Tuesday’s parliamentary election; four, including Smeirat, are Christian.

The unusual campaign, which is a first for 21st-century Middle East politics, has not only brought Islamist candidates to Christian communities; it has also brought Christian candidates to the refugee camps and working-class neighborhoods that are the heartland of Islamist supporters.

Such crossover is noteworthy not only in the Middle East, where Christians have been under attack from Iraq to Syria to Egypt, but even in the increasingly polarized political environments of the United States and some European countries, where other sorts of tribalism are taking hold.

Indeed, the IAF, the political branch of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, is not
Carey Price Jersey signing up token candidates; its Christian candidates are pillars of their communities, and it has involved them in decisions ranging from electoral strategy to campaign slogans.

But some pundits remain skeptical about whether the move marks a new era in post-sectarian politics, or is simply a shrewd electoral strategy by Islamists to build a majority coalition. Jordan reserves nine of its 130 parliamentary seats for Christians, which make up 3 to 4 percent of Jordan’s population.

While the Brotherhood’s slogans and campaign agenda has changed, the movement’s core tenets and founding principles – which call for an Islamization of society – have not.

“If you look deeply within the movement, you see these changes are only on the surface,” says Musa Shteiwi, director of the Center for Strategic Studies at the
Max Pacioretty Jersey University of Jordan. “The Brotherhood manifesto does not call for a civil state or protection of minorities – which truly matter to Christians – making these changes merely cosmetic.”

WHY ISLAMISTS ARE REACHING OUT

Jordan’s new electoral law, which requires candidates to run on a list of several candidates rather than individuals, has encouraged cross-tribal, cross-party, and cross-religious alliances.

But the IAF says its outreach to Christians, which began in January of this year, was part of a deep overhaul of the movement, rather than an alliance of convenience.

“In Jordan and across the Arab world, the political situation has changed, the demands of the people have changed, and we have changed,” says Zaki Bani Rsheid, deputy leader of the Brotherhood and election strategist.

In a bid to reach beyond the Islamists’ conservative base and become a national movement, Mr. Bani Rsheid formed the National Alliance for Reform (Islah), a network of like-minded reformist leftists, nationalists, tribalists, Islamists, and Christians.

The coalition aims to be a force in Jordan’s parliament to push for political and economic reform, and an end to what many perceive as rampant corruption. Bani Rsheid and others see Islah, rather than the Brotherhood, as the future direction of the Islamist movement.

Bani Rsheid and the IAF look to Tunisia’s Ennahda or Turkey’s AKP as models of centrist Islamist movements. But neither of those have attempted a high-profile coalition with religious minorities.

Though independent Christians chose to join the IAF’s parliamentary bloc in 1989, this year’s election marks the first time Islamists have openly drafted and campaigned alongside Christian candidates.

“We are no longer a religious movement, but a wider, national movement to provide a voice for all Jordanians – particularly our Christian brothers and sisters.”

AN ALTERNATIVE TO EXTREMISM

Christians in Jordan are better off than many of their co-religionists elsewhere in the Middle East. Many enjoy an exalted status, serving in the military, the royal court, and as cabinet ministers.

But in July, a controversy erupted in Jordan after a young Christian musician died in an automobile accident, igniting a debate on social media whether it was proper for Muslims to offer their condolences to a Christian. The controversy led the country’s fatwa authority, the Iftaa Department, to issue a statement declaring it not only permissible, but encouraged.

Weeks later, a prominent Christian columnist and commentator published a cartoon on social media deemed so insulting to Islam that Jordan’s prime minister called for his subsequent arrest. (He was released after three weeks.)

Candidates say they are offering a voice in line with the tone of interfaith harmony set by Jordan’s King Abdullah and the Hashemite royal family, which spearhead several interfaith initiatives. They have encouraged church construction along the banks of the Jordan River, welcomed church leaders from around the world, and also sponsored the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week earlier this year.

“There are extremists in society on both ends of the spectrum that try to use religion to create tensions and undermine security,” says Audeh Quawas, a former Orthodox Church official and Islah candidate. “We are the alternative voice to confront them.”

WHY CHRISTIANS THINK ISLAMISTS CAN HELP THEM

In the Islamists’ electoral agenda, Christians say they find many points of Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Away White Ice Hockey Jersey common concern to their constituency: lifting up Jordan’s struggling middle class, lowering university tuition fees, price control on basic commodities, and an end to corruption.

They also might actually be able to get things done.

For over 20 years, tribal candidates have dominated Jordan’s parliament – yielding a politically weak legislature more concerned with securing jobs and benefits for relatives than discussing issues of concern to everyday Jordanians. With the Islamists, the only organized and nationally relevant political party,
Youth Reebok Montreal Canadiens 33 Patrick Roy Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey,candidates see a way to break the cycle.

“Some people ask me – how can a Christian defend Christian rights under an Islamist list?” says Dr. Quawas. “I have one simple answer: Have the last 20 years of tribal MPs done anything for us Christians? No, and it is time for a change.”

Christian and other minority candidates see their participation as a chance to further moderate the Brotherhood, which is attempting to evolve from a social conservative movement to a diverse, centrist political party.

“In the 1980s and ’90s the Islamic Action Front’s slogan was ‘Islam is the solution,’ ” says Quawas. “Now their campaign slogan is ‘Renaissance for the homeland, dignity for the citizens.’ We are changing them and their outlook – and that is only going to be good for the country.”

MUSLIMS AT A CHRISTIAN’S CAMPAIGN TENT

The message of cross-religious politics is already having an impact. Islah election banners strewn across Amman and Fuheis call for a “Jordan for all segments of society” and “no to sectarianism.”

“We don’t see it as a Christian going after Christian votes or a Muslim going after Muslim votes – that would be another backwards form of tribalism,” says Abu Rumman.

“We are Jordanians going after the vote of the Jordanian people.”

On the Day of Arafah, a holy day marking the Hajj pilgrimage and the eve of the
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 31 Carey Price Authentic Home Red NHL Hockey Jersey Cheap Eid holiday sacred to Muslims, Muslim candidates and voters lined up at Smeirat’s election tent in a show of support and to extend holiday greetings.

“Today we have fasted, we have prayed and now we want to pray for your success,” said Salman Massaeed, Islah candidate and Smeirat supporter.

“May this Eid, and all your days be blessed,” said voter Mohammed Massaed.

LASTING CHANGE?

Observers are divided whether Islamists’ change in tone and cross-sectarian appeal will continue beyond election day.

The Brotherhood’s past gives some Christians pause.

The Brotherhood’s only experience in governance – a brief stint in 1991 where the Islamist movement held five cabinet posts in a coalition government – was marred by controversy and sectarian overtones.

Popular backlash across the country, particularly among concerned minorities, erupted after the Brotherhood attempted to pass a series of conservative social measures including banning alcohol, barring fathers from watching their daughters in sporting events, and segregating men and women at ministries, universities, and schools across the kingdom.

But many Christian voters say they will not be scared off by the divisive politics of the past.

“We are raised as Jordanians who put our Jordanian identity first,” says Jeryes Munir, a university student and voter from Fuheis. “We want to vote for a better
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red C Patch Hockey Jersey Jordan, not a divided one.”

Will Fuller Football Jersey China’s fixed-asset investment grows 8.2% in August

China’s fixed-asset investment grows 8.2% in August.

BEIJING – China’s fixed-asset investment posted a much faster increase in August,
Will Fuller Football Jersey offering relief to an economy beset by lingering downward pressure, official data showed Tuesday.

Fixed-asset investment grew 8.2 percent year on year in August, up by 4.3 percentage points from the previous month, according to the National Bureau of
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale Statistics (NBS).

Investment in the private sector, which had concerned policymakers for its lackluster growth, expanded 2.3 percent from a year ago in August, reversing a
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey 1.2 percent decline in July, the data showed.

“Investment is on a more steady path,” NBS spokesperson Sheng Laiyun said at a
Will Fuller Jersey press briefing. In the first eight months, fixed-asset investment rose 8.1 percent year on year, unchanged from the January-July period.

Fixed-asset investment includes capital spent on infrastructure, property, machinery and other physical assets.

The figures were among a string of data released by the NBS, including statistics
Will Fuller Texans Jersey on retail sales and industrial production, which both
Women’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey reported faster growth in August.

“Generally speaking, the improvement in major indicators last month showed positive changes to the economy, with progress achieved in structural adjustment and growing new economic impetus,” Sheng said.

Investment growth by state-owned enterprises slowed slightly to 21.4 percent in

Stafford outduels Luck in Lions’ late win over Colts


Will Fuller Jersey For Sale Stafford outduels Luck in Lions’ late win over Colts.

1. Matt Prater escaped “goat” status with a game-winning 43-yard field goal with four ticks to go to secure the Lions’ victory in Indianapolis. On Detroit’s previous score to take the lead, Prater pushed the extra point right, which allowed Indy to
Will Fuller Jersey For Sale take a one-point lead with a score with 43 seconds left. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford went to his bread and butter on the ensuing four-play final drive, tossing a 19-yard pass out of the backfield to Theo Riddick, a
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Away White Football Jersey Sale
nine-yarder to tight end Eric Ebron and a 22-yard shot to new acquisition Marvin Jones. It was refreshing to see Stafford show heroics and poise throughout the contest, qualities of his game that were quite absent last season.

2. Andrew Luck’s shoulder is just fine, sheeple; he carried the Colts on it all day.
Will Fuller Football Jersey Indianapolis’ franchise quarterback showed no sign of wear or tear in his first start since Week 9 last season, tossing 385 yards and four touchdowns. After a slow start through 28 minutes of play, Luck led four scoring drives of 75-plus yards, including a 94-yarder early in the fourth. Sans the departed Coby Fleener, he made stars out of his remaining tight ends, Dwayne
Men’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Navy Blue Team Color NFL Jersey Allen and Jack Doyle, who combined for seven catches, 88 yards and three touchdowns. In the fourth quarter, Doyle caught Luck’s final two scores after beating Detroit’s linebackers in the red zone.

3. Lions running backs are flourishing in Jim Bob Cooter’s system. All three of Detroit’s tailbacks scored touchdowns against the Colts, including two from Theo Riddick (12 touches for 108 total yards). Not to be outdone, Ameer Abdullah
Will Fuller Jersey racked up 120 total yards, the first time he’s gone over that century mark in his career. Abdullah and Riddick paired well together, each taking Stafford passes out of the backfield for six in the second half.

The Lions quarterback picked up where he left off last season, looking comfortable with Cooter as an offensive coordinator. Stafford finished 28-for-35 with 340 yards and three touchdown passes, while connecting with six different receivers for three completions or more. One of those receivers? Ebron, who picked up five catches for 46 yards and an early touchdown. Yes, this season-
Women’s Nike Houston Texans 15 Will Fuller Elite Alternate Battle Red Jersey opening performance came against an injury-riddled Colts secondary, but it may be time to buy stock in Detroit’s offense.

4. An already thin Colts’ secondary lost more bodies on Sunday. Coming into the season opener with just four healthy cornerbacks, two of which were signed in the past week, Indy lost starter Patrick Robinson to a concussion and fill-in
Will Fuller Texans Jersey starting safety T.J. Green to a knee sprain. Stafford took advantage of Indy’s thin backline on Detroit’s game-winning drive. Look for the Broncos, Chargers and Jaguars to do the same thing in the upcoming weeks.

Hikvision’s dome cameras installed at Nuremberg railway station

Hikvision IP Camera 1.3 megapixel vandal-resistant dome cameras are being used at Nuremberg railway station in Germany, the largest railway station in northern Bavaria which currently receives 130,000 passengers every weekday. The cameras are allowing station management to protect travellers and provide them with context-sensitive information.

As part of continuing improvements in customer care and heightened vigilance against terrorism, Deutsche Bahn AG has begun to transform its operational control centres and is upgrading camera surveillance from analogue to ip cctv system. These measures are part of information gathering at control hubs known as ‘3-S Centres’ where video streams, audio signals, telephone and radio messages are assessed so that appropriate action can be taken.

Passengers communicate with the control centres using information/emergency columns on the station platforms at Nuremberg and the Hikvision cameras are positioned nearby so that officials can see high-quality images of the platforms and surrounding areas at resolution of up to 1280×960 pixels. Staff are able to make specific announcements to individual travellers including wheelchair-users, giving advice that is appropriate to their situation or difficulty. They can also discount frivolous activation of emergency buttons – perhaps by schoolchildren – with a simple evaluation of images.

The Hikvision camera have been installed as part of a turnkey emergency and logistical solution designed by the Munich-based systems house Indanet AG who work closely with Hikvision as a technology partner and specialise in the public transport and traffic management sectors. These1.3 megapixel cameras offer H.264 / MPEG-4 dual-stream real-time video compression with various frame rate options according to usage demands.

Hikvision cameras support video management systems (VMS) from many major vendors. On this project the cameras are operating from the control centre management system developed by Indanet AG. It is based on their nexus control centre software which unifies disparate categories of data into a single, future-proof solution that makes cost-effective and ‘green’ use of legacy equipment where appropriate.  Disciplines can include CCTV, help points, passenger information, access control, fire prevention and track-to-train communication.

The cameras use a 2.7~9mm (F1.2) lens and feature a 1/3″ SONY progressive scan CCD. Minimum illumination is 0.1 lux at F1.2 or 0.01 lux at F1.2 in black and white mode. These dome units can be triggered by motion detection and if needed users can store data ‘at the edge’ on a 32-gigabyte SD/SDHC local card. There are local alarm inputs and outputs with audio compression achieved by the Ogg Vorbis format, a feature that was consistent with the open-protocol approach demanded by the end-user on this project. The cameras have an ingress protection rating of IP66 and the enclosures are providing protection against airborne contaminants including brake pad particles which are a familiar problem at railway stations.

Mr. Jurgen Fuchs, Director of Strategic Projects at Indanet AG, said: “The Hikvision cameras are proving robust in a demanding environment and the price-to-performance ratio is impressive. We are also able to access technical support from Hikvision’s European office in Amsterdam with excellent response levels and informed advice. At a major railway station with extensive subsystems there are many demands on bandwidth and RAID storage. These cameras make efficient use of the H.264 codec to compress video streams without compromising image quality. ”

Montreal Canadiens Winter Classic Jersey Fantasy goalie rankings for 2016-17

Devan Dubnyk, Minnesota Wild

After being a Vezina Trophy finalist in 2014-15, Dubnyk was 32-26-6 with a 2.33 GAA, .918 SV% and five shutouts last season to finish among the top 10 fantasy
Montreal Canadiens Winter Classic Jersey goalies again. He started 66 games (tied for second in NHL), a number which he should approach again this season, and allowed one goal or fewer in almost one-third of the games (20). The Wild aren’t
Men’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Away White C Patch Hockey Jersey Sale built on offense and had extended slumps last season, but Dubnyk kept them in most games. His name value may not be as flashy or popular as the other top goalies, but he has shown what he is capable of the past two seasons.

Brian Elliott, Calgary Flames

Elliott takes a step back in the fantasy goalie rankings after moving from the
Women’s Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey defensive-minded St. Louis Blues to the Flames, the League’s worst team in goals against last season (3.13 per game). That said, Elliott had a .930 SV% (first; minimum 15 games) and a 2.07 GAA (T-2nd) last season and is a huge upgrade for Calgary. Elliott hasn’t started more than 51 games in any season in his career, but that should change being the No. 1 in Calgary and no longer being involved in a Max Pacioretty Jersey time share. The Flames, led by high-scoring forwards Johnny Gaudreau and Sean Monahan, should be able to provide offense, with Elliott doing the rest. It would be hardly surprising to see Elliott finish among the top 10 goalies by season’s end, meaning he’s worth a sixth-round pick in a 12-team draft.

Marc-Andre Fleury, Pittsburgh Penguins

This isn’t the expected spot for Fleury, 31, who has been a top-five fantasy goalie for much of the past decade. But after he was overtaken by Murray last season, he is listed as the No. 21 goalie on Yahoo and probably won’t be drafted until the eighth or ninth round of 12-team drafts. Murray excelled in the playoffs and has the edge on the starting job as of now, but Fleury was 35-17-6 with five shutouts,
Men’s Custom Made Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic 2016 Winter Classic White Hockey Jersey,a career best 2.29 GAA and .921 SV% last season despite missing time on two separate occasions because of a concussion. He has had at least 34 wins in each of the past seven full NHL seasons and is still a threat to finish among the top 100 overall. If you’re drafting Murray earlier, make sure you take Fleury the following round to preserve what should be an efficient tandem.

POTENTIAL STEALS

High-ceiling goalies who should be available outside the top 100 on average

Robin Lehner, Buffalo Sabres

Lehner was limited to 21 games last season after sustaining an ankle injury in the Sabres’ opener. He only had five wins, but still impressed with a .924 SV% allowing two goals or fewer in 13 outings. Questions about Buffalo’s lack of offense (T-25th in goals per game last season) have been answered with the
Maillot Canadiens Montréal signing of right wing Kyle Okposo, who should make the Sabres power play even more dangerous and flank eitherRyan O’Reilly or Jack Eichel at even strength. Lehner, 22nd in Yahoo’s rankings, will be the undisputed No. 1 in Buffalo and has breakout potential in the 12th round or later in a 12-team league.

Andrei Vasilevskiy, Tampa Bay Lightning

Vasilevskiy, 22, played eight games in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs and four the postseason before following injuries to Bishop, the Tampa Bay starter. Bishop enters the final season of his contract and Vasilevskiy signed a three-year extension that runs through the 2019-20 season. He is ranked outside the top 200 overall (204) by Yahoo, but proved his worth last season (11-10-0, 2.76 GAA, .910 SV%, one SO) and it wouldn’t be surprising if he ends up starting 30 or more games this season, given the uncertainty surrounding Bishop. The Lightning have been to the conference final each of the past two seasons and have a deep defense to continue alleviating pressure on their goalies.

James Reimer, Florida Panthers

Reimer, 28, signed a five-year contract with Florida this offseason, so he has a chance to be the starter if/when Roberto Luongo, 37, retires. But Reimer still provides fantasy upside this season, especially with Luongo recovering from hip surgery. Even if Luongo is ready to start the season, Reimer will see his share of
Custom Montreal Canadiens Jersey starts for one of the most complete teams in the Eastern Conference. He was 17-14-7 with a 2.31 GAA and .922 SV% for the
Youth Authentic Reebok Montreal Canadiens 67 Max Pacioretty 2016 Winter Classic Ice Hockey Jersey Toronto Maple Leafs and San Jose Sharks last season, and had three shutouts in eight starts after being traded to contending San Jose. Joining another well-rounded team should help him continue his fantasy upswing.
