EDMONTON -- Fred Stamps has 431 career receptions, 6,812 yards and 42 touchdowns, but right now the Edmonton slotback would trade it all in for one victory for the struggling Eskimos. Andreas Christensen Jersey . The 31-year-old receiver had eight catches for 111 yards and two touchdowns in the teams heartbreaking 30-27 loss to Saskatchewan last Saturday, statistics that moved Stamps into the top five of all-time Eskimo receivers for catches and yards, and top eight in touchdowns. Yet there he sat, looking as forlorn as any player possibly could; his individual performance meaning very little. "Id give it all for a victory," he said of the individual stats. "I appreciate all the history and tradition. I look up to all the guys who were here before me and its an honour to be mentioned with those guys, but I want a victory." The Eskimos have now lost six straight since beating Hamilton in week two of the CFL season. Their last four games they have lost by a combined total of 12 points. Now they face the 6-2 Calgary Stampeders in the annual Labour Day back-to-back series beginning Monday in Calgary. Destined for the Eskimos Wall of Honour and likely the CFL Hall of Fame, the six-foot, 188-pound Stamps is finding the Eskimos 1-7 season and their recent string of narrow losses difficult to deal with, admitting frustration is mounting in the dressing room. "It is so tough (to take)," he said. "Im just so hungry right now, I want to win. I know theres a lot of history and tradition (with the individual stats) but I just want to win right now." And hes been doing everything in his power to try to get the Eskimos those elusive wins. He leads the league in receiving yards (684) and touchdowns (six) and has been the teams most consistent offensive player all year. Just as he has throughout his seven years in the CFL. "Freddies a tremendous player," said quarterback Mike Reilly, who has found Stamps 36 times this season. "Its rare to see a veteran guy, who has had so much success in this league, who is still willing to put in the effort and the time that a rookie whos trying to make the team would. He shows up as if hes still fighting for a roster spot every day." Reilly, a first-year Eskimo, said the veteran is always talking to him, asking about how to run certain routes, how to cut to increase the chances of a successful play or whether doing things one way or another would work. "To see that in a veteran guy whos had so much success and still remains so humble and hungry to continue to get better is rare," Reilly said. "Geroy Simon was like that. Thats what separates the guys who are really great from the guys who are just really, really good. And Freddie is truly great." In an effort to shore up a disappointing defence that is giving up an average of 30 points a game, the Eskimos signed import defensive lineman Nekos Brown and non-import defensive back Ryan Hinds on Wednesday. Hinds was selected in the second round (13th overall) of the 2009 CFL Canadian draft by Hamilton. He had 71 defensive tackles, 10 special teams tackles and an interception in three seasons (2010-12) with the Tiger-Cats. Brown played two games earlier this season with the Toronto Argonauts recording one tackle and one sack. Alexandre Pato Jersey .What they got was a bevy of players chipping in to pick up the slack.Josh Smith scored 18 points and James Harden added 17 as the Rockets used a balanced scoring effort to outlast the Mavericks for a 99-94 victory.

A member of Cup-winning teams with the Kings in both 2012 and last season, Richards is in the seventh year of a 12-year deal that comes with an annual cap hit of $5.75 million per season. Hes being paid $7 million this season, with $6 million, $5.5 million, $4.5 million, $3 million and $3 million in each year. Theres still time here. He knows what he has to do. That part I am not questioning, Kings general manager Dean Lombardi told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Monday. The way the schedule is down there, it allows him to get his innings in and conceivably he could be back here. Thats the way were approaching this. Thats the short term. On the long term, he could be a different player. If you remember when Teemu Selanne when he went tto Colorado it looked like he was done. Fikayo Tomori Jersey. He looked done. But all of sudden things changed. He went on for a longer career. Theyre different players but I see no reason why this cant happen here, either. Richards has been a key part of the Kings two Stanley Cup championship teams in the past three seasons, playing a responsible two-way role and providing leadership. But his plummeting offensive production hasnt matched his exorbitant contract for years in Los Angeles, which acquired him from Philadelphia in 2011. Richards, who turns 30 next month, has only five goals and 10 assists in 47 games with Los Angeles this season. He has a minus-7 rating and has won only 48 per cent of his faceoffs while playing on a depth line with the Kings not the numbers expected of a player with a $5.75 million annual salary cap hit for the next six seasons.
