RAMALLAH, West Bank -- The Palestinian Olympic committee says its delegations uniforms are being held up by Israeli authorities. Air Jordan 1 Clearance .Munther Masalmeh, the secretary-general of the Palestinian Olympic committee, says clothes and equipment purchased for the team have yet to clear customs. He says the team of six was forced to leave for Rio de Janeiro without them.The Israel Tax Authority, which oversees customs, says it has heard nothing of the matter but would be happy to assist if approached by the Palestinians.Israel and the Palestinians have clashed before over sporting issues. The Palestinians previously called on FIFA to expel Israel from tournaments over restrictions it has placed on its players movements. Israel says some Palestinian athletes have militant ties and the restrictions are purely security measures. Air Jordan 1 Discount .ca! Kerry, Two nights after the Scott-Eriksson incident in Buffalo, the Bruins returned home to play San Jose. In that game, Zdeno Chara put a check on Tommy Wingels that clearly targeted his head. Air Jordan 1 Sale Usa . During the athletes parade, the 23-strong Ukrainian team was represented by a lone flagbearer in an apparent protest at the presence of Russian troops in Ukraines Crimean peninsula. http://www.cheapairjordan1.net/ . "Four now," Carl Gunnarsson told the Leaf Report proudly following a 5-2 victory over New York on Tuesday night, the clubs fifth straight at home. TORONTO -- On Tuesday, Aaron Ekblad went home to Florida.After becoming a surprise scratch in Monday nights loss to Team Russia, the most important defenseman on Team North America in the World Cup of Hockey watched his teammates lose from a press box suite while wearing a suit and tie.He and North America management were following league protocol after Ekblad experienced concussion-like symptoms following a big hit from Finlands Leo Komarov in Ekblads first game of the tournament.But in terms of making the tough call between playing through pain in a best-on-best tournament and preserving yourself for the long grind of a regular season, there is no real protocol.There are judgment calls, conversations and, right now, lots of NHL general managers just hoping it ends.If youre a fan of the game, you love to watch the excitement, and its a beautiful game to watch, said one Western Conference general manager. But when you look at whats the benefit to the [NHL] team? Its zero.For a team like Ekblads Panthers, its now gone into the negative. The Dallas Stars can feel their pain. Stars captain Jamie Benn of Team Canada pulled out of the tournament to heal from surgery, and theyve now suffered two injuries in Canadas Tyler Seguin (foot) and the Czech Republics Radek Faksa (concussion symptoms).Ales Hemsky of the Czech Republic, one of the last healthy Stars left, had better watch out.How the communication between the club team and international team went down has varied depending on the situation. Stars GM Jim Nill got word after Canadas first exhibition game against the U.S. that Seguin was banged up.He sent Seguin a text, and the response from his star center assured him he was fine. After he played another exhibition game, the tone of the texts changed.Seguin was hurting.A conference call was set up with Nill, Seguin, doctors and Team Canada GM Doug Armstrong, and the group hashed out a solution. Maybe Seguin could power through the injury, but with center Ryan OReilly ready to step in, it wasnt necessary.The decision was made to send Seguin home. There might have been relief for the Stars that Benn and Seguin were out of harms way and should be ready to go to start the season, but they also felt for a guy who all summer had been looking forward to representing his country.I talked to Tyler the night before he went to the camp in Ottawa, how excited he was in playing for Canada, Stars coach Lindy Ruff said Tuesday. I dont think any of them think of injury before they go. They just think of playing.And when they get hurt, theyy think of playing through it. Best Cheap Air Jordan 1. Thats what makes these guys the best in the world.So its important that NHL clubs have a say in the decision, especially considering how hard it can be for the player to take a big-picture approach when opportunities like this dont present themselves very often.For a player such as Faksa, this is one of the first opportunities to play for his country on a big stage.Radek, hes a young guy representing his country. Hes 21. It tugs at them, Nill said. Its hard. Its tough. Its tough for them to go, Hey, I cant go anymore, to their teammates there and their country.Ultimately, the team has a say, and the Panthers certainly didnt hide their desire to bring Ekblad home, nor should they have. Hes their franchise defenseman. They have Stanley Cup hopes this season.Its not like Ekblad grew up dreaming of wearing the Team North America orange and black. So this was the no-brainer.It makes the North Americans job a little harder as they face Sweden on Wednesday needing a win to survive. The team is also without goalie Matt Murray, who is out with a hand injury. Ekblad was their big-minute defenseman, taking on the toughest competition for coach Todd McLellan.Fellow defenseman Ryan Murray left practice early in what McLellan called a maintenance day, saying he expects Murray to be available for the Sweden game. If not, that would leave North America with five defensemen, which would be an issue.Yeah, defenseman Jacob Trouba deadpanned. You usually want six.If they get to six, the young group remains confident they have a defense capable of advancing in this tournament. The coaches and general managers of the emerging NHL stars might not exactly be broken hearted if they dont.The World Cup has seen big names go down and its just getting out of group play. Multiple general managers said they were taken aback at just how intense and physical the opening exhibition game was between the United States and Canada. It was clear then the players cared about this tournament in a big way. When thats the case, injuries are going to follow. Its inevitable.Those watching from the outside, waiting for it to end just hope it doesnt strike their key players as the games get even more intense once the World Cup shifts to the semifinalsYou just look at the history of these tournaments, one team is going to get significantly hurt, said one GM. Youre holding your breath its not you. ' ' '
