EDMONTON -- Having sold fans on the merits of a structured and orderly rebuild the past three seasons, Edmonton Oilers general manager Steve Tambellini isnt looking for quick fixes between now and Mondays trade deadline. While the needs of a 29th-place team that has already finished 30th in back-to-back seasons are many, Tambellini has been preaching short-term pain in the name of long-term gain. That isnt about to change. Tambellinis most pressing matter in the next five days is deciding whether to sign forward Ales Hemsky to a new contract or risk losing him to unrestricted free agency July 1 if he doesnt trade him. "A lot of years, the trade deadline can be a distraction and it can be stressful," said fifth-year centre Sam Gagner. "Not that it isnt a distraction this year, but it does feel a little different. "Were obviously not in the position we want to be, and you kind of expect changes to come, but as a team we kind of know where we stand and we want to continue to grow as a group." While the Oilers havent made the gains in the standings they hoped for, fading after an 8-2-2 start, the feeling is the team is better in terms of personnel and the rebuild is on schedule. "The courage to stick with the plan is organization wide," Tambellini said recently. "We know where were going. We know what we have. We know the good things that are happening within the organization." With first overall picks Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to show for those 30th-place finishes the past two seasons and 2008 first-rounder Jordan Eberle, Tambellini has some key pieces to build around. "Were not a 29th-place team," said defenceman Ryan Whitney. "I know, how many times can you say that? But were really not. "Weve had a lot of guys out with injuries and thats been a factor. We have another draft pick coming and if we can stay healthy . . . Were looking forward to next year. You dont need to rush to fix this right now." The Oilers have questions in goal. Nikolai Khabibulin is 39 and Devan Dubnyk has yet to prove hes ready to take the reins. Depth on defence behind Whitney, Ladislav Smid, Tom Gilbert and Jeff Petry is a concern. There could be a big hole to fill on right wing behind Eberle if Hemsky is traded. That recognized, Tambellini isnt of the mind he has to address those questions and concerns in the next week, and insists hes not willing to part with any of his young talent to do it in the name of expediency. "I think as a manager you always have to be open to listening to any deal thats out there that you feel can help your organization," Tambellini said. "Ill say again, at no time are we going to be selling anything that is going to hurt our future, what we think is part of our core. If its something we feel is going to make us significantly better long-term and short-term, of course, well consider it, but nothing for just a short-term gain." Whitney and Smyth have both been traded at the deadline. Whitney was acquired from Anaheim for Lubomir Visnovsky in March 2010. The Oilers traded Smyth to the New York Islanders in 2007 when contract negotiations stalled. "Theyre going to do whats in the best interests of the hockey club," Smyth said. If he (Tambellini) feels there are guys available to take at this time, hell do it. If he feels he needs to wait, Im sure hell do that, too. All you can do as a player is accept that and compete. "Were in a rebuilding stage here with a lot of young guys. Weve got to keep this young nucleus, but at some point you have to start pressing to become a competitive team." Given what Tambellini has said and that the Oilers arent in the midst of a playoff push, where adding one more two players might put them over the top, theres not a lot of outward tension in the dressing room. Most of the questions surround Hemsky. "Personally, a lot of us are kind of begging Hemmer to sign a two-year or a three-year deal," Whitney said. "If you do trade him, its going to be for the future and it kind of sets us back a little bit. "Hes a top-six forward who is hard to replace, so thats the one thing everybody is a little bit nervous about. Everyone really likes him, but . . ." cheap nfl jerseys . -- Kyle Buchanan scored four goals and added three assists to lead the Philadelphia Wings over the Vancouver Stealth 15-9 in National Lacrosse League action on Saturday. nfl jerseys china .

WIMBLEDON, England -- It was a great day for Canadian juniors at Wimbledon on Friday as Vancouvers Filip Peliwo and Montreals Eugenie Bouchard each qualified for their respective finals. Peliwo is off to his third junior Grand Slam boys final of the season thanks to a 5-7, 7-6 (3), 6-3 victory over Mitchell Kreuger of the U.S. in the semfinals. Meanwhile, Bouchard beat Anett Kontaveit of Estonia 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 in their girls semifinal to advance. Watch Bouchard in the girls final, Saturday on TSN.ca at 8am et/5am pt. You can also catch Peliwo in the boys final, Sunday on TSN.ca at 8am et/5am pt. Peliwo, 18, lost both the Australian and French Open finals this year but will be hoping to make it third time lucky when he plays Australian Luke Saville, who defeated Italys Gianluigi Quinzi, 6-3, 6-4 in the other semi. Saville beat Peliwo for the Melbourne junior title in January. Bouchard will take on No. 3 Elena Svitolina in the girls final after the Ukrainian beat Montreals Francoise Abanda, 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Bouchard lost to Kontaveit at the French Open but said she was more mentally tough this time around.dddddddddddd. "As soon as she was getting her good shots, I was like I dont know what to do any more," Bouchard said. "This time I was ready for them. I got a bit pressured by them, but I knew she couldnt keep that up for three sets. So, I think I was more prepared." Peliwo, who was devastated by his finals defeat a month ago in Paris, showed solid form as he recovered from a set and a break down against Kreuger. "Im always going to fight but theres always that little thought in the back of your mind where you think, Its going to be very difficult to come back from this. Its not very often that it does happen. Today I ended up playing some big points when I needed them and it worked. "On grass, its difficult the way he was going. I knew it was possible to come back. I knew I could do it but I didnt believe I was going to do it." Peliwo won in just under two and a half hours with five aces, three breaks of serve, 34 winners and 33 unforced errors. ' ' '
