The Tampa Bay Lightning took advantage of the Vancouver Canucks desire to shed a veteran defenceman. Mario Balotelli Liverpool Jersey . Numbers Game looks at the deal sending Jason Garrison back to the state of Florida. The Lighting Get: D Jason Garrison and LW Jeff Costello. Garrison, 29, is a defenceman with good size and a cannon of a shot from the point who tied a career-high with 33 points last seasn and will be able to handle top-four minutes on the Tampa Bay defence. Garrison has played more than 20 minutes per game in each of the past four seasons and, over the course of those four years, no defenceman has fired shots at a higher rate on the power play. Over the past three seasons, he ranks 15th among defencemen with 2.16 shots on goal per game and has missed a total of seven games, so hes been durable. Last season wasnt Garrisons best, in terms of possession stats, but hes had positive possession numbers in the past, so last year shouldnt preclude him from being a useful part of the Tampa Bay defence. In Tampa Bay, the Lightning really needed an upgrade on defence. Victor Hedman and Matt Carle were the only defencemen on the roster that averaged more than 20 minutes per game last season and Garrison will add stability, as well as a power play point threat, to that group. Garrison had to waive his no-trade clause for the deal to go through, and he has four years, at a cap hit of $4.6-million, remaining on his contract. Its also not a bad deal for Tampa Bay since the contracdt was front-loaded, so the last four years come at a total cost of $15.6-million (an average of $3.9-million per season). Costello is a 23-year-old winger who finished a four-year career at Notre Dame, scoring 82 points in 145 games. He was acquired from Ottawa at the trade deadline, but hes not signed and may be set to become a pro free agent after August 15. The Lightning dont currently have much room on their reserve list, and the Canucks could also use the extra room in their attempts to acquire more players. The Canucks Get: A second-round pick. The 50th overall pick presents about a one-in-three chance of netting an NHL player. While its useful to get an asset, the move is more about clearing room on the Vancouver blueline. Chris Tanev joins Dan Hamhuis, Kevin Bieksa and Alexander Edler in the top four on defence, and newly-acquired Luca Sbisa can pair with Ryan Stanton on the third pair, so there was room for the Canucks to move out an established NHL defenceman and, just as importantly move out the accompanying salary. Its been a busy day, just leading up to the draft, for the Canucks, so there could very well be more to come but, whats been done establishes that Vancouver will be younger than they were last season, with financial flexibility to make moves this summer if they so choose. With a new regime, it would come as no surprise if the Canucks continue to be active in their attempt to re-build the roster.

The Indians are 3 1/2 games out of the second wild-card spot after Oakland, Kansas City and Seattle all lost ahead of them earlier in the day. The start of the game was delayed for more than two hours because of rain.JOHANNESBURG - Prosecutors in the Oscar Pistorius case said Monday they will file appeal papers in the next few days against the verdict and sentence after the Olympic runner was convicted of culpable homicide and given a five-year prison term for killing his girlfriend.The decision by South Africas National Prosecuting Authority could see Pistorius face a murder conviction again for shooting Reeva Steenkamp and, if found guilty on the appeal, a minimum of 15 years in prison.The 27-year-old double-amputee athlete was acquitted of murder by Judge Thokozile Masipa for shooting Steenkamp multiple times through a toilet cubicle door in his home. He testified he mistook her for a nighttime intruder. Masipa found him guilty instead on a lesser charge comparable to manslaughter.The NPA said in a statement its decision to appeal was based on a question of law, meaning it believes that Judge Masipa misapplied the law when she acquitted Pistorius of murder.The merits and the demerits of the NPAs argument ... will become evident when we file papers for leave to appeal, the national prosecuting body said. The prosecutors are now preparing the necessary papers in order to be able to file within the next few days.Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel and his assistant, Andrea Johnson, had been hard at work since last week studying the judgment, researching and consulting with legal experts, the NPA said.Prosecutors must apply initially to Masipa for permission to appeal within 14 days of Pistorius Oct. 21 sentencing. If Masipa grants them permission, Pistorius case would be reviewed by a panel of three or five judges in the Supreme Court of Appeal, legal expert Marius du Toit said. They could overturn the manslaughter conviction and find Pistorius guilty of murder.Prosecutors can directly petition the SCA if Masipa denies their appeal, du Toit said.Pistorius lawyer, Brian Webber, declined to comment, while Pistorius uncle, Arnold Pistorius, said in a short family statement: We take note of the states announcement. Calum Chambers Arsenal Jersey. The law must take its course.Pistorius started serving his prison sentence last week for negligently killing Steenkamp on Feb. 14, 2013. Currently, the multiple Paralympic champion is eligible for release after 10 months to complete the sentence under house arrest.Prosecutors had said they were disappointed with the culpable homicide conviction and believed they had a strong murder case against Pistorius. A murder conviction has a minimum of 15 years in jail in South Africa.Chief prosecutor Nel laid the groundwork for the decision to appeal by speaking with Prof. James Grant, a criminal law specialist at Johannesburgs University of the Witwatersrand, prosecution spokesman Nathi Mncube said.Masipas decision to acquit Pistorius of murder had been questioned by legal analysts. Grant, a television analyst during Pistorius trial, was among them and said last week that he had advised Nel to appeal. Grant also said he agreed to assist prosecutors.Experts say there are grounds for an appeal, partly because the judge may have misapplied a part of the law called dolus eventualis — which says someone should be found guilty of murder if they foresaw the possibility of killing someone through their actions and went ahead anyway. The experts questioned how Masipa ruled that Pistorius did not predict that someone might die when he decided to shoot four times from close range into the small toilet cubicle in his Pretoria home, hitting Steenkamp in the hip, arm and head.Some experts have also said that Pistorius argument that he did not know it was the 29-year-old model in the cubicle might not be enough to save him from a murder conviction as he still knew there was someone in there when he fired his 9 mm pistol.___Imray reported from Stellenbosch, South Africa.
