VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks arrived for training camp Wednesday with high expectations following two first-round playoff exits. Terry Bradshaw Steelers Jersey . Fiery new coach John Tortorella is likely to be more demanding than laid-back predecessor Alain Vigneault, the winningest coach in team history. Vigneault was fired last spring and took over Tortorellas previous job with the New York Rangers. But with few roster changes expected as Tortorellas era in Vancouver begins under a reduced NHL salary cap, some veterans are looking for motivation from within. "We accomplished quite a bit, this core group, in the last five, six, seven years," said defenceman Kevin Bieksa. "But obviously the last two years, were not happy with at all. Two first-round exits. Last year was just straight-up embarrassing. "So we have a lot to prove to ourselves and everybody else obviously. Expectations in the (dressing) room are always going to be higher for us than from the media or the fans. We want to win. We want to win now. Weve been together for a long time and weve put in a lot of work." Players also expect to work hard under Tortorella, who was fired by the Rangers at the end of last season. Hes attempting to change his reputation for having a hot temper, little tolerance for reporters questions and a tendency to browbeat players. But Tortorella, who is also known for physically demanding training camps, said it will still take him some time to figure out which players need extra incentive to play at their best. "Its not always looking to kick a guy," said Tortorella. "Thats what happens sometimes when we talk about this (reputation), that all Im doing is kicking people. "Thats not what this is about. Its watching, observing (and) thats why I cant wait to get going. I want to get to know them. I want them to know me, and then you go through your day-to-day situations and what comes up that day, react to. Ill make mistakes. I hope I correct them and go the right way, but you cant forecast, you cant predict, how youre going to (motivate players.) You need to take each day at a time." The Canucks held off-ice physical tests Wednesday at Rogers Arena and will conduct on-ice testing at the University of British Columbia on Thursday before hitting the ice for workouts back at their downtown rink Friday. Winger Zack Kassian, 22, acquired two seasons ago from Buffalo in the Cody Hodgson trade, is one player who appears likely to receive an extra push from Tortorella. The coach reached out to Kassian in the off-season in a bid to get him going early. "I want to give him every opportunity to be a huge part of this team, and Ive told him that," said Tortorella. "I want to give him an opportunity because of what people have told me about him. Its something that I think the team needs as far as his willingness, as far as his playing into a bigger role within the team. Id like to see it happen." He wants Kassian, who may get a chance to play as a top-six forward in pre-season games, "to step out of himself" and become a "big part" of the club. Kassian, who has played on all four lines without establishing a clear place, said its up to him to show what he can do and earn a bigger role. "Its always tough when youre bouncing around on lines, but I dont want to use an excuse," said Kassian. "I need to get more consistent. The mental side of the game, I felt like Ive grown this summer, and I come in more mature and stronger and in better shape than last season, and thats all you can expect. "I think Im going in with open eyes this year." He was Buffalos top draft choice (13th overall) in 2009, but has yet to live up to his billing as a prototypical power forward. The LaSalle, Ont., native recorded seven goals and four assists in 39 games with the Canucks after the lockout and had 21 points (8-13) while toiling for their former Chicago Wolves farm club during the labour dispute. Tortorella also hopes to get more out of centre Ryan Kesler, who is healthy again after hip, shoulder and wrist injuries limited his training in the past two off-seasons. Kesler spent the summer getting his body "where it needs to be." Kesler believes he and Vancouvers emotional new coach can get along. "I think were a good fit," said Kesler. "We both want to win, we both hate losing, and Im looking forward to the challenge." While players go through a feeling-out process with Tortorella, goaltender Roberto Luongo will "just try to feel it out" when it comes to staying with the Canucks after the club indicated it would trade him in the past two off-seasons. While Luongo said he could not ask for anything better than being a starter in the NHL, he has yet to express pleasure about staying in Vancouver. "Im not saying Im unhappy," he said. "Right now, I just want to be playing and then well see how it goes." Defenceman Dan Hamhuis said all the Canucks are eager for the season to start under Tortorella. Hamhuis, a 30-year-old Smithers, B.C., native said players must be mentally tough when dealing with criticism from the new coach, who pledged to implement a culture that allows players to be highly creative on offence but still play strong defence. "Hes going to raise his voice and yell at us if hes not happy with our performance," said Hamhuis. "Weve got to expect that and we cant get down on ourselves and get down and be upset in a way that its going to negatively affect our play. "We have to understand that he wants the best for us, and hes not trying to put us down as individuals. Hes trying to build us up." Notes: Winger David Booth remains out with an ankle injury suffered last March. General manager Mike Gillis said Booth has still not been cleared to play. Cheap Troy Polamalu Jersey . Manager John Gibbons wasnt taking the bait on Friday afternoon following his clubs 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Red Sox. "When we put the team together, well announce it at the end," said Gibbons. "Nice try, though." Pressed further, Gibbons was only slightly more willing to share what everyone believes hes thinking about his 23-year-old right-hander. Hines Ward Steelers Jersey . The league announced the decision on its website Saturday, shortly before AC Milan was due to kick off against Genoa at 6 p.m. local time. The 25-year-old Morosini died about an hour earlier after suffering cardiac arrest during his teams Serie B match at Pescara. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Canadas Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points, Wayne Selden Jr. had 14 and No. 10 Kansas pulled away in the final seconds of overtime for a 77-70 victory over Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament. Naadir Tharpe made four foul shots in the extra session to seal the victory for the top-seeded Jayhawks (24-Cool, who will face fourth-seeded Iowa State in Friday nights semifinals. The No. 16 Cyclones, behind a big game from Melvin Ejim, beat No. 5 seed Kansas State 91-85. Phil Forte briefly gave the Cowboys a 70-68 lead with a 3-pointer a minute into overtime, but the Jayhawks scored the final seven points, all but two of them coming at the foul line. LeBryan Nash scored 19 points to lead the Cowboys (21-12). Forte added 16 points and Marcus Smart finished with 14, though he missed all three of his shots in the extra session. Both teams had chances to earn the win in regulation. Wiggins, from Vaughan, Ont., hit a baseline jumper with a minute left to knot it 67, but Cowboys coach Travis Ford decided against going 2-for-1 on possessions, and Smart missed a 3 with 32 seconds left. The Jayhawks got the rebound and called timeout with 16 seconds left to set up a play for Wiggins, and he missed a tightly guarded 3 with a few ticks left on the lock. Tarik Black gathered in the rebound and stuck it back, but the basket came after time had expired. Black got extended minutes in place of Joel Embiid, the Jayhawks 7-foot freshman centre, who has been ruled out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his back. The senior transfer finished with seven ppoints and 12 rebounds, including a couple with the game in the balance. Dermontti Dawson Jersey. The Cowboys, who had to play a matinee after dispatching Texas Tech on Wednesday night, didnt look as if they were weary in the first half. They actually pulled out to an early lead, silencing a heavily pro-Kansas crowd that had packed inside the Sprint Center. Kansas responded by taking a 32-23 lead into halftime, and then maintained its advantage early in the second half. But once Black and fellow forward Perry Ellis picked up their fourth fouls, the Cowboys started shredding the Kansas defence by driving the lane. Smart proved to be the most adept at it, picking up fouls when he wasnt hammered on the way to the rim. But just about everyone wearing black and orange got into the act, and Oklahoma State methodically trimmed the lead to 55-49 with about 8 minutes to go. Thats when Cowboys coach Travis Ford changed things up by slapping on a full-court press. It produced two quick turnovers and helped Oklahoma State take a 60-59 lead with 4 minutes left. It was the Cowboys first lead since the 12-minute mark in the first half. The two teams, who each won on their home floor during the regular season, traded blows down the stretch. Selden made a couple free throws for Kansas, Forte answered with two from the foul line for Oklahoma State. Black and Wiggins threw down alley-oop dunks for the Jayhawks, and Murphy hit a pair of free throws and Markel Brown hit a rainbow 3 to give the Cowboys the lead. It just made sense that such a nip-and-tuck game would be decided in overtime. ' ' '
