Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand has been suspended for the next two games for slew-footing New York Rangers forward Derick Brassard during Bostons 3-0 victory Thursday night. Pearl Washington Jersey Signed . Marchand slew footed Matt Niskanen of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2011 and was fined $2,500. Nick Shaback Jersey Signed . The result means Atletico Madrid now tops the table, with Madrid level on points in second and Barcelona a point behind in third with nine games remaining as the title race shapes up to be the closest in years. NBA Jerseys For Sale . Notes on P.K. Subban, Dale Weise, Erik Haula, Mikael Granlund, Ilya Bryzgalov and more. . - The Toronto Blue Jays have optioned pitchers Kyle Drabek, Chad Jenkins and Sean Nolin to triple-A Buffalo.SANTA CLARA, Calif. - San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York is tired of the legal troubles involving his team, hinting Monday that the standards slipped under former coach Jim Harbaugh while pointing the blame at everybody involved including himself.As the off-field problems and arrests mounted, Harbaugh stood and spoke for the franchise each time — exactly how the front office wanted it. He handled the tough questions and all the mundane day-to-day dealings in between.The 49ers had 10 arrests involving six different players since January 2012, most in the NFL.There are things that I didnt necessarily like — Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, that you dont speak more loudly on because you win, York said. And thats my failure. There were things that in conversations that we had, I know what my gut was. And we had conversations and we did things that probably didnt jell well with who I am. And I would rather do the things that we need to, but stay at the level of class that I expect of the San Francisco 49ers. And this isnt shooting at Jim and saying, Jim made all these decisions. I want you to clearly hear that.Broadly referred to as philosophical differences, the issues between York and Harbaugh ultimately were too great to maintain a winning relationship.That is Yorks take on what transpired anyway. He and general manager Trent Baalke addressed Harbaughs departure a day later in what the owner reiterated was a mutual decision.York wouldnt elaborate on his chat with Harbaugh or what they didnt agree upon during the coachs successful four-year tenure that included three straight NFC championship game appearances and a runner-up showing in the Super Bowl after the 2012 season.Weve had philosophical discussions and when we sat down we just couldnt come to a place where we thought moving (on) together was the best for either party, York said. We didnt win the Super Bowl. If we dont win the Super Bowl, were not executing. Our mission is very simple: The San Francisco 49ers win with class. We havent won, and I dont think weve conducted ourselves with the level of class that I expect of our organization. Weve had off-the-field issues. Thats going to happen in sports. The level that its happened here is not acceptable.Harbaugh, meanwhile, was long gone already and poised to be formally introduced by his alma mater,, Michigan. Bobby Brown Jersey Signed. He didnt return messages seeking comment as photos emerged of him arriving in Detroit.York said he understands if fans are frustrated that the team parted ways with Harbaugh given the successful turnaround since his high-profile hiring in January 2011 and with one year left on his $25 million, five-year deal. Harbaugh was free to sign anywhere, York said.Jim is a very good football coach. I certainly understand why our fans would want him to stay, York said. Theyre upset, I get it.Players cleaned out lockers, and began fielding questions about what they want in a new coach. Several said theyd love someone a lot like Harbaugh.Of the expected internal candidates, defensive line coach Jim Tomsula and defensive co-ordinator Vic Fangio, there is support for both. Neither York nor Baalke would say who they might interview in what they called an upcoming 7-10 day period. All the assistant coaches were still employed as of Monday, York and Baalke said.Arizona defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles and Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn also are expected to receive interviews, Quinn perhaps as early as this week given the Seahawks have a bye as the NFCs No. 1 overall playoff seed. Patriots offensive co-ordinator Josh McDaniels is likely to get an interview.Were going to take as long as necessary to make sure we have the right person in place, Baalke said. We were 8-8 this year. There are no excuses. It starts with me. ... This isnt a rebuild situation, this is a reload situation.York and Baalke met with the players Monday as everybody parted ways for an earlier off-season than anyone expected following a disappointing 8-8 season that began with Super Bowl aspirations. They expressed the need for accountability.Sometimes things dont work out, and its a business, fullback Bruce Miller said. They make those decisions. But we had a great time with him and loved playing for him.Now, the players are preparing for whoever might be their next leader.Hes going to have to have pretty much everything that Jim Harbaugh had, tight end Vernon Davis said, because he was good. He was really good. If you look at who we were, our identity, in the beginning before Harbaugh even got here, we were pretty much nothing.___AP NFL website: and ' ' '
