Part of receiver Austin Collie’s value to the B. http://www.thejaguarslockroom.com/Youth-Tyson-Alualu-Elite-Jersey/ .C. Lions is that he’s Canadian. The irony is that, last year at this time, he wasn’t Canadian...at least not in the eyes of the CFL. His citizenship hasn’t changed. In fact, the five-year NFL veteran has been a Canadian citizen since November 11, 1985 – the day he was born in Hamilton, where his father Scott was an import receiver for the Tiger-Cats. What changed was the CFL’s - or, more accurately, the CFL Players Association’s - view of what qualifies a professional football player as a Canadian or national (formerly non-import.) Until the ratification of a new collective bargaining agreement last June, getting the approval of the CFLPA had always represented the biggest obstacle preventing the CFL from making the terms “Canadian” and “Non-import” synonymous. Here’s a brief history lesson to explain. Many of those who followed the intricacies of last spring’s intense CBA negotiations noted the fact that all of the members of the CFLPA executive had two things in common. First of all, Scott Flory, Jeff Keeping, Brian Ramsay, Marwan Hage and Jay McNeil were all offensive linemen. Second, and most relevant, they were all Canadian. The strongest voices in the PA have always been Canadian and, as such, protecting the jobs of Canadian players has always been a very high priority. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a strong believer that maintaining a high level of Canadian content is critical to the survival of Our League. The issue was that, for many years, the PA chose to protect those non-import jobs by militantly limiting the pool of players who were eligible to compete for them...and the CFL effectively granted them the power to do so. To be fair, the league was by no means innocent in all of this, as the hardline stance of the PA was a direct response to a trend towards member clubs exploiting loopholes in both the standards and the process for qualifying a player as a non-import. In any case, the new rules, under which a player’s classification is based primarily on his citizenship at the time he enters the CFL (rather than time of residency or first exposure to organized football), represent, by far, the most logical and most easily regulated system the league has ever employed. As for Austin Collie, he is one of a number of Canadian football players who saw his CFL status change from import (now international) to national under the new CBA and he becomes the first of those players to enter the CFL. Other imports-turned-nationals whose names you may recognize include recently retired NFL receiver Nate Burleson, veteran NFL linebacker Jamaal Westerman, Detroit Lions rookie receiver T.J. Jones, and San Francisco 49ers long snapper Kyle Nelson. Burleson, Jones and Nelson are all sons of former CFL players, while Westerman’s younger brother, Jabar, is a defensive tackle for the Lions. Other players, like current NFLers Colin Cole (DT, Carolina Panthers), Orlando Franklin (OL, Denver Broncos) and John Urschel (OG, Baltimore Ravens) have always met the non-import qualifying standards, but didn’t have that status simply because they never submitted an application. Now, because their Canadian citizenship is common knowledge, they are considered nationals without being required to endure that process. All of these players are eligible to enter the Canadian Football League as free agents. They can neither be placed on negotiation lists, nor drafted. Any new qualifiers who have not yet completed their college eligibility will be entered in their regularly scheduled draft class. In 2015, the most notable, among no fewer than four such players, should be highly regarded Idaho defensive lineman Maxx Forde, who is the son of former NFL and CFL linebacker Brian Forde (no relation to me.) As one who has studied the topic extensively and lobbied the CFL and CFLPA for nearly a decade to adjust the standards to make the terms Non-Import and Canadian more synonymous, Im ecstatic about the rule change. This league requires a strong pool of Canadian talent, particularly with the recent expansion to nine teams and the hope of soon reaching 10. Yes, Canada is producing more and better football players than it ever has, but that’s being neutralized by the NFL’s ever-increasing awareness of the Great White North as a talent source. Frankly, the Canadian talent pool also takes a hit because some top prospects forgo CFL careers to pursue more lucrative job options. That’s just a reality of the CFL. In any case, based on evidence gathered over the last decade, the tangible impact of this rule change is that it will add an average of about three NCAA Division I players to every CFL draft class. Having played American college football by no means guarantees that a Canadian will succeed in Our League, but when I look at the list of players who would have qualified as nationals had these regulations been in place in past years, I can confidently state that the rule change will at least offset part of the loss of prospects to the NFL. An interesting footnote to this story is that, had the Canadian Football League and its Players Association implemented the current criteria for a player to qualify as a national 20 years earlier, several Hollywood movies might have looked very different. Most CFL fans know that pro wrestler turned actor Dwayne The Rock Johnson was a member of the Calgary Stampeders in 1995. However, what you may not have realized is that Johnson, who played in the CFL as an import, would today qualify as a national because he is a Canadian citizen by birth. As an Import, Johnson struggled to crack the lineup of the CFLs most dominant team of the era and, thus, rather quickly gave up football in favour of other pursuits. However, as a non-import, he wouldve been a coveted talent and likely first-overall pick in the 95 draft, and thus wouldve been granted ample opportunity to develop as a CFL player. Despite his newfound national status, The Rock is never (...and when I say never, I mean never, EVER!) coming back to play in the Canadian Football League...but the hope is that Austin Collie is just the first of many previously excluded Canadians who will take advantage of this opportunity. http://www.thejaguarslockroom.com/Youth-Myles-Jack-Elite-Jersey/ .

LOUIS - Vladimir Sobotka needed just a couple shifts to return to top form Thursday night. Back after missed the previous 12 games because of a left knee injury, Sobotka had a goal and two assists to help the NHL-leading St. Louis Blues beat the Edmonton Oilers 6-2 on Thursday night. "I just kept it simple," Sobotka said after the fifth three-point game of his career. "It was about timing. As the game went along, I got a little faster and a little stronger." St. Louis has won six of seven overall and eight of nine against Edmonton. Alex Pietrangelo started a four-goal third period and Jaden Schwartz added two goals for the Blues, who outscored Edmonton 17-4 in sweeping the three-game season series. Pietrangelo, Schwartz and T.J. Oshie scored in 7:14 span at the outset of the third period to break a 2-2 tie, and Schwartz added his second goal of the period at 12:56. Ryan Miller made 23 saves to improve to 5-0-1 since joining the Blues in a trade with Buffalo on Feb. 28. Hes 7-0 against Edmonton. Sobotka scored late in the first period and then set up the winning goal 42 seconds into the third period. He stole the puck from Andrew Ference in the corner and found Pietrangelo wide open in the slot for a 3-2 lead. "We knew he was going to bring some energy and some bite back into our lineup," Pietrangelo said. "Whether he felt his best or not, it certainly looked like he didnt miss a beat. We kind of needed a little extra jump and he seems to have brought it." Pietrangelo felt he had to capitalize on Sobotkas hard work in the corner "It was a great pass, Id better bury it," Pietrangelo said. Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for St. Louis, and Oshie added two assists. http://www.thejaguarslockroom.com/Youth-Jalen-Ramsey-Elite-Jersey/. . Miller has stopped 134 of 145 shots in six games with St. Louis and has yet to lose in regulation. He has a 1.82 goals-against-average and .924 save percentage with the Blues. David Perron and Mark Fraser scored for Edmonton. Perron spent six seasons in St. Louis and leads the Oilers with 25 goals. Edmonton tied it at 2 late in the second period on Frasers shot from close range. The Blues then took over with a near-perfect third period. "We played with tempo and we played with speed in the neutral zone," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We were really effective. We put a lot of pressure on people." St. Louis outshot Edmonton 14-11 over the final 20 minutes, peppering goalie Ben Scrivens from start to finish. "They capitalized on their scoring chances," Scrivens said. "But I needed to make more saves than I did." The Oilers appeared to have gained the momentum with Frasers tying goal. "I dont care how good they are, we were able to play with them for two periods," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "We certainly should be able to do it for another 20 more minutes." Notes: St. Louis D Barret Jackman left the game briefly late in the second period after colliding with Jesse Joensuu. Jackman returned for the third period. ...The Oilers have used six goalies this season. ... Ten of the Blues last 13 games have been decided by one goal. ... Edmonton C Sam Gagner had a five-game points streak snapped. ... The Oilers are 7-2-3 in their last 12 games, their best stretch since going 8-3 at the start of the 2011-12 season. ... Oshies two assists give him a career-high 36 this season.
