EDMONTON -- Now that the Edmonton Oilers have secured their offensive future, the defence is next on their to-do list. With Thursdays signing of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, the Oilers have their three key forwards -- Nugent-Hopkins, Taylor Hall and Jordan Eberle -- locked up for the next six or seven years. The focus now shifts to Justin Schultz, the future of the teams blue-line who is in the final year of a two-year contract he signed as a free agent. "Long-term, Justin Schultz is definitely going to be a key ingredient for us," defensive coach Steve Smith said after Fridays skate. "Justin just has a natural gift to be an offensive player. He jumps into the play so well, hes so skilled, he shoots the puck hard, hes able to find open spots in the offensive zone and, quite frankly, hes strong defensively." The 23-year-old is still happy he chose the Oilers when several NHL teams were pursuing him and he sees himself being in Edmonton for a long time. "All of us want to be here for a long time," said the six-foot-two, 185-pound Schultz, adding hes not concerned about his contract. "Not worried about that at all. I have this year to play and well see what happens." What the Oilers see happening is Schultz leading the development of a number of key defensive players and becoming the face of that group, which is fine with him. "You want to be one of those key guys," he said. "Its nice to have the responsibility. Were all a pretty young core group of guys and some veterans who came in who can help us." But Smith noted its not just Schultz, who had eight goals and 27 points in last years 48-game shortened season. "Weve got a bunch of guys who compete real hard," he said. "Its a hard-working group and theres a lot of character in it so theres a lot of promise moving forward." He had particular praise for 25-year-old Jeff Petry, who Smith says carries the puck well and is "as pure a skater as there is the game as far as Im concerned." Smith, a former defenceman with the Oilers, was generally pleased with the way the defence played last year, although he concedes the team did struggle in its own end, partly because of the lack of commitment to defence by the young forwards. "We had some good results offensively," said Smith. "Justin coming in definitely helped us in the offensive zone. And Jeff Petry is another one. They just have abilities that just arent taught. So you look at it and say both of those guys are pretty well-rounded players and the future is very bright." Short-term, he said, the club bolstered its defence with the addition this summer of free agent Andrew Ference from Boston and Nick Schultz last year. Add a pretty consistent Vladislav Smid and the Oilers do have some steady veterans to help the youngsters. Plus, there is young Darnell Nurse, their first-round pick in last springs draft. "Hes raw and hes got some steps to take to get the NHL level, but I have to tell you were really happy with what weve seen of him so far," said Smith. The Oilers are home to the Vancouver Canucks in another pre-season meeting Saturday evening. Trevor Siemian Vikings Jersey . Stiverne stopped Chris Arreola in the sixth round Saturday night, claiming the WBC heavyweight title belt vacated by Vitali Klitschko. Sheldon Richardson Jersey .  Rooneys latest piece of football genius lost in the furore which now stalks David Moyes, and the man who gave the Manchester United striker his start as a 16-year old at Goodison Park back in 2002.…. With the players association in the midst of meetings in Las Vegas, a vote will be held on Friday to decide the CFLPAs presidency and other executive positions. Kirk Cousins Vikings Jersey . Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday. Randy Moss Jersey . The 26-year-old Redditch, England, native played three of his past four seasons under Rennie with the Carolina RailHawks of the North American Soccer League. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Preposterous as it might have once sounded, quarterback Matt Leinart finds himself suddenly having much in common with Jeff Tuel. Upon arriving in Buffalo last weekend for what could be a last chance at resurrecting his career, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner offered Tuel -- an undrafted rookie out of Washington State -- advice on how to prepare for the possibility of being the Bills opening-day starter. "With football, its crazy," Leinart said. "I told him, Hey, in this league, anything can happen. You always have to stay ready." Leinart spoke from experience. It wasnt lost on the former Southern California star that he could have been referring to his own seven-year career thats gone from the promise of first-round-draft-pick potential, to spending nearly the entire off-season wondering if he still has an NFL future. "Oh yeah, Ive seen the worst in this league. And Ive seen some pretty good highs," Leinart said. "So Ive been through a lot." If not for injuries sidelining the Bills two top quarterbacks, rookie EJ Manuel (left knee) and veteran Kevin Kolb (concussion), Leinart might still have been waiting by the phone. Instead, after signing with Buffalo on Sunday, Leinart will have whats essentially a one-time tryout to compete for a backup spot as the Bills (2-1) close the preseason against Detroit (2-1) Thursday. Tuel is expected to get limited playing time because the Bills are wary of having yet another quarterback hurt before opening against New England on Sept. 8. That means Leinart and Thaddeus Lewis, who was acquired Sunday in a trade with Detroit, will get the majority of snaps after only two days of practice and a walkthrough. "Im just excited to be here, obviously, and humbled and just thankful for the opportunity," said Leinart, who is on his third team in as many seasons. "For me, at this point, I dont feel like theres anything to lose. Thats exciting because Ive had a lot of pressure over the years." The pressure of expectations along with injuries, coaching changes, loss of confidence and bad timing have combined to derail Leinarts career. He was drafted 10th overall in 2006 by Arizona after a 37-2 record at USC. Leinart started 16 games his first two seasons in Arizona before being sidelined by a broken left collarbone in 2007. He spent his final two seasons with thhe Cardinals backing up Kurt Warner.dddddddddddd Seeking a fresh start, he signed with Houston in 2010, where misfortune struck Leinart the following year. Taking over a playoff-bound Texans team that was off to a 7-3 start, Leinart broke his collarbone in the first half of his first game in place of injured starter Matt Schaub. "Talk about lows. That was one of the toughest times of my career," he said. "It was like, Why? Like this is the opportunity Ive been waiting for two, three years. And it was just taken away from me like that." Leinart spent last season in Oakland, where he appeared in two games splitting backup duties with Terrelle Pryor. In Buffalo, Leinart has no guarantees after Thursday. Tuel is penciled in to start the opener, though the Bills havent ruled out Manuel being ready to play. Kolb is out indefinitely, which opens a spot Leinart could fill once the team makes its final cuts by Saturday. Coach Doug Marrone said its too early to make any determinations regarding Leinart or Lewis. "I really dont know until I see them and evaluate them," Marrone said, noting hell judge Leinart on how he performs in Buffalo without preconceptions. "You go in there and say: Whatever has happened in the past is in the past. Heres an opportunity -- take advantage of it." Marrone was with New Orleans in 2006, when the Saints evaluated Leinart as a potential draft pick. And Leinart is familiar with Bills offensive co-ordinator Nathaniel Hackett. The two share common friends, and Hacketts father, former Trojans coach Paul Hackett, recruited Leinart to play at USC. "Obviously, I know nothing is guaranteed ever," Leinart said. "I know theres been times where I havent performed well. But Im still capable, and I still know I can do it." The Lions are approaching the game seeking to settle starting jobs on the right side of their offensive line. Coach Jim Schwartz has yet to say whether tackle Jason Fox and rookie guard Larry Warford have solidified the two spots. Linebacker Chris White will make his Lions debut after the Bills traded the reserve to Detroit to acquire Lewis. "Thats going to be pretty crazy," said White, Buffalos 2011 sixth-round draft pick. "Its definitely going to be strange playing against all my teammates. But Im going to go out there and give it my all."
