s 50-goals and 98-point campaign into seventh.

LONDON -- Sergej Gontcharov sums up the status of Ukraines bid for the 2022 Winter Olympics in one word: uncertain. J.J. Watt Jersey . The Ukrainian city of Lviv was among the five contenders that submitted applicant files to the International Olympic Committee by Fridays deadline. With Ukraine engulfed in political crisis and its strategic Crimean peninsula under Russian control, its unclear whether Lviv will be able to keep pursuing its Olympic campaign. "Obviously so much is connected to what is going on in the country," Gontcharov, the CEO of the Lviv bid, told The Associated Press in an interview Friday. "As of now, there are more urgent and more important things that have to be clarified." Competing with Lviv for the 2022 Olympics are Almaty, Kazakhstan; Beijing; Krakow, Poland; and Oslo. The five delivered their applicant files to the IOC this week, outlining their vision and concept for the games, in the first phase of the bid process. The IOC executive board will decide which cities go through to the final phase at a meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, on July 7-9. The full IOC will select the host city on July 31, 2015, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. "We did our job by submitting the files to the best of our ability and now we have to wait and see," Gontcharov said. "Hopefully the situation calms down quickly and is resolved peacefully. Then we will enter into more detailed and more concrete talks with the new government." Beijing, which hosted the 2008 Olympics, is seeking to become the first city to host both the Summer and Winter Games. Oslo hosted the 1952 Winter Games. Krakow would hold some ski events across the border in Slovakia. Almaty is a strong contender, bidding for a second straight time after failing to make the cut for 2014. Lvivs bid has been buffeted by the upheaval in Ukraine, including the anti-government protests and outbursts of violence that led pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych to flee last month. Russian troops have since moved into Crimea, where the public will vote Sunday on whether to break away from Ukraine and become part of Russia. How long Lviv remains in the race is anyones guess. "Im not here telling fairytales," Gontcharov said by telephone. "Of course, its very uncertain. The concept itself is based on great demand and potential. Whether we will be able to realize it now is unclear at the moment, too uncertain." Gontcharov was in Lausanne on Thursday to meet with IOC officials and confirm the bid files had arrived by shipment. Just getting that far was an achievement. "We worked very hard to complete the applicant file," he said. "Its all been a very big challenge. So many times we had to cancel some events that were planned in promotion of the bid, such as the logo launch and different social events. Every time when we thought the situation has calmed down, there was a new escalation." While most bid cities work hard to promote their case, Lviv is keeping a low profile while Ukraine remains in turmoil. "All the nice words and slogans and so on that we have prepared, theres no sense in it," Gontcharov said. Lviv is located in western Ukraine, where much of the population favours ties with the European Union. Many in eastern Ukraine have closer economic and traditional ties to Russia. The Lviv bid also has offices in the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv. The offices, located near Independence Square, were closed for two days during last months deadly clashes between demonstrators and police. "We came back to our offices and found three bullets," Gontcharov said. "It was very difficult to concentrate on the project." A key requirement for any Olympic bid is government backing and financial guarantees -- something that has been thrown into doubt for Lviv by the changes and instability in Ukraine. "Of course (the bid) depends on the government highly, and right now the government has other priorities," Gontcharov said. An IOC panel will examine the files of the 2022 bid cities and submit a report to the executive board before its decision in July on the short list of finalists. "It is a short time frame but if you have followed the events in Ukraine, from one day to the other there can be so many things happening," Gontcharov said. Whitney Mercilus Jersey . The Ottawa Senators recalled the 20-year-old from Binghamton of the American Hockey League Tuesday and he knows he has a lot to prove if he intends on staying in Ottawa. Authentic DeAndre Hopkins Jersey . Randy Foye added 17 for a Nuggets team that was missing J.J. Hickson, who suffered torn ligament in his right knee on Friday. Wilson Chandler also didnt play (strained left hip) and Jan Vesely didnt return after bruising his rib cage late in the third quarter.Who is the No. 1 player in the NHL today? Thats the question that was once again posed to a special panel of hockey experts whose votes created the second annual TSN ranking of the Top 50 current NHL players. Despite missing the second half of the 2010-11 season with a concussion and no return date just yet, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was voted the top player ahead of Washington Capitals superstar Alexander Ovechkin for the second straight year. Crosby was well ahead of the field in scoring when he suffered the injury in early January, posting 32 goals and 34 assists in 41 games. And he still finished the year as the Penguins leading scorer.  Crosby has also reached topped the 100-point mark in four of his six NHL seasons. His points-per-game in the postseason ranks him third in NHL history with 1.34, trailing only Wayne Gretzky (1.84) and Mario Lemieux (1.61). The NHLs premier player amassed 215 goals and 357 assists for 572 points in 412 games while winning the Stanley Cup, Hart Trophy, Art Ross Trophy, Rocket Richard Trophy and Lester B. Pearson Award. The order was determined by a cumulative point system based on the individual rankings. In the end, six goaltenders, 10 defencemen, seven left wingers, 20 centres, and seven right wingers made the grade. Washington Capitals sniper Alexander Ovechkin tallied 85 points last year - the worst statistical output of his six-year NHL career. Three-time Selke Trophy winner Pavel Datsyuk finished third, despite missing 26 games last season with injuries. Also of note, Art Ross Trophy winner Daniel Sedin took fourth place in the voting after leading the NHL with 104 points (41 goals, 63 assists) last season.  His twin brother Henrik, who led the league in scoring two years ago, was fifth after recording 19 goals and 75 assists last season. The last two winners of the Rocket Richard Trophy placed sixth and seventh respectively, with Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos placing sixth on the strength of his 45-goal season. Last years Rocket Richard (and Hart Trophy winner) Corey Perry, who was 33rd on the list last season, rode the strength of his 50-goals and 98-point campaign into seventh. Authentic J.J. Watt Jersey. Jonathan Toews (who eclipsed the 70-point plateau for the first time in his career) and Martin St. Louis (who finished last season one point shy of the 100-point mark) were eighth and ninth respectively. Rounding out the Top 10 is Boston Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chara, who not only led his team in the regular season, but was a key factor in his club winning the Stanley Cup. There were six players selected in goal, with Bostons Tim Thomas being the top goaltender, slotted in 14th by the panel. Nashville netminder Pekka Rinne (28th), Montreals Carey Price (30th), New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (34th), Buffalos Ryan Miller (36th) and Vancouvers Roberto Luongo (41st), were the other goaltenders to make the list. Of the eight teams without any players in the Top 50, four are them are based in Canada - with the Winnipeg Jets, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers all left out. Where player age is concerned, Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner, 19, is the youngest player to be voted onto the list. At the other end of the spectrum, Red Wings defenceman Nicklas Lidstrom is the oldest at 41 while Thomas is the second-oldest at 37. Where countries of origin are concerned, Canada led the way with 26 players, followed by the United States with nine and Sweden with seven. Rounding out the list are four players from Russia, two from Slovakia and one player each from Finland and Slovenia.  Eleven players who rated in the Top 50 last season didnt make the cut this year - Marian Gaborik (20th in 2010), Mike Green (27th), Dany Heatley (36th), Daniel Alfredsson (38th), Mikko Koivu (39th), Alex Semin (41st), Miikka Kipsusoff (42nd), Johan Franzen (44th), Martin Brodeur (45th), Vinny Lecavalier (47th) and Brent Seabrook (48th). Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaAuthentic China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NHL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
