EDMONTON -- Canada was missing a key component ahead of its important match against Costa Rica: a complete roster. The mens national soccer team still hadnt practised with its entire squad 24 hours before Tuesdays game against the Central Americans, despite training all weekend in Edmonton. "One player actually arrives (Monday night) so its not ideal preparation national team-wise for sure because the guys have come in dribs and drabs," said interim head coach Colin Miller as training concluded on Monday. That absent player is Edmonton native Tosaint Ricketts, who will arrive from his club in Norway before Tuesdays game at Commonwealth Stadium. "Four of the (Toronto FC) guys arrived yesterday and this is their first training session but the attitude is great," said Miller. Included in the Toronto FC quartet was national team debutant Jonathan Osorio. The Major League Soccer rookie has turned a few heads with a pair of goals in what has otherwise been a forgettable season for TFC. "Im happy to be with the best of Canada and being away from Toronto and all the media thats there," said Osorio. "I guess its good. Its good to relax but you cant relax too much because we have business to do (Tuesday)." Miller is in charge of Canada for the second time in 2013 after he was at the helm for two friendlies in January when Canada lost 4-0 to Denmark in Tucson, Ariz., and played the United States to a scoreless draw in Houston. Miller has remained in charge of FC Edmonton in the North American Soccer League even while on Canadian duty. On Sunday, he ran a Canadian training session at Commonwealth before dashing across the parking lot to coach FC Edmonton at the adjacent Clarke Stadium in a league game against the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers. Edmonton lost that game 1-0 but Millers hoping a largely inexperienced squad can put in a better outing on Tuesday and give him his first career win as a Canadian coach. "Its a great opportunity for these guys to come in, show well and show that theyre capable of playing at this level," Miller said. "If we can get this group together after a four-day period and play against a quality opposition like Costa Rica then it shows you that there are some terrific tools to work with here." Canada, ranked 80th in the latest FIFA rankings, is up against a 48th-ranked Costa Rican side that is just over a week away from their first of three crucial World Cup qualifiers that take place in June. While Canadas World Cup hopes were dashed last year, the national team is still preparing for this summers Gold Cup tournament, hosted by the United States. Canada is still looking for its first win in 2013 after trying once and losing three times in four previous friendlies this year. "Its going to be a very interesting summer," said midfiedler Julian de Guzman, one of a handful of holdovers from the squad that was embarrassed 8-1 by Honduras in October, a defeat that dashed Canadas World Cup hopes. "Its a chance for a lot of the guys to showcase themselves to see if they have a chance to actually be in the final squad for the Gold Cup," said de Guzman. "The weeks been pretty solid -- a lot of positive notes coming up from the young guys and this is a great test for the squad." Miller may be positioning himself to be in charge of the team for this summers Gold Cup as the search continues for a new full-time head coach. The tournament happens to fall in a break in the NASL season and while Miller has said a few times that he aspires to be in charge of Canada on a full-time basis, hes had no contact about coaching this summer but would never pass up the opportunity. "There is a gap there between the end of first NASL season to the start of the second NASL season so I suppose it is possible," said Miller. "But I can assure you no one from the (Canadian Soccer Association) has spoken to me about my availability. "Im sure theyre looking at full-time head coaches rather than someone thats part-time."

First off, the fans ripped the Cubbies introduction of a fuzzy new kid-friendly mascot named "Clark".GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Phoenix Coyotes general manager Don Maloney stood at a podium deep inside Arena and talked about his contract extension, his priorities over the next few months and the future of the organization. Just five miles down Glendale Avenue at City Hall, the NHLs hierarchy and a potential new ownership group met with members of the Glendale City Council to discuss a new arena lease agreement, the final hurdle in a four-year quest to keep the franchise in Arizona. Yes, both are encouraging steps toward finally giving the Coyotes some long-awaited stability. But with as many times as this saga has offered false hope in the past, it might be better to wait until all the papers have been officially signed before getting too excited. "The positive is that the NHL is meeting Glendale and there is going to be some sort of resolution in the weeks ahead," Maloney said during a news conference on Tuesday. "Whatever that means, we dont know, but we know were moving forward in that area." Maloney has been at the franchises helm for six seasons, the past four working with the financial and operational restraints of being run by the NHL. He was successful at pulling just the right strings, putting together a team that made the playoffs three of the past four seasons, including having the best year in franchise history. Despite having one of the most unenviable front-office positions in all of sports, Maloney wanted to stay with the Coyotes and took a leap of faith that the ownership issue would be resolved, agreeing to a long-term contract extension last week. The Coyotes added more stability on Tuesday, exercising contract extensions on associate coach Jim Playfair and goalie coach Sean Burke. Head coach Dave Tippett, who attended Tuesdays news conference, is expected to sign a deal to stay with the organization in the next few weeks and Maloney is hoping to work out deals to keep the rest of the support and scouting staffs. There are also numerous players to re-sign, including No. 1 goalie Mike Smith and forward Boyd Gordon, who both become free agents on July 1. What happens with all those deals will likely hinge on what happens with the ownership situation. Last week, the NHL agreed to sell the team to Renaissance Sports & Entertainment, a group headed by Canadian investors George Gosbee, Anthony LeBlanc and Daryl Jones. Their deal is contingent upon reaching a lease agreement for Arena with the city of Glendale. The potential owners joined NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly in Glendale on Tuesday, meeting first with Glendale Mayor Jerry Weier, then with City Council members to begin lease-agreement talks. "We had a number of constructive meetings today with the Mayor, various members of the City Council and the acting City Manager," Daly said in a statement. "Everyone involved in todays discussions shares the desire and ultimate objective of transitioning the ownership of the Coyotes and safeguarding the franchises long-term future in Glendale. We expect that representatives from the Renaissance group will begin meeting with the City to see if a mutually agreeable lease arrangement can be forged expeditiously.dddddddddddd. We will have no further comment pending completion of that process." Its an encouraging step, but the organization and its fans have been close before, only to be disappointed. The Coyotes have been operated by the NHL since they were purchased out of U.S. Bankruptcy Court in 2009 following former owner Jerry Moyes attempt to sell the team to Blackberry founder Jim Balsillie, who wanted to move the franchise to Hamilton, Ontario. Since then, the franchise has had numerous suitors, most recently former San Jose Sharks CEO Greg Jamison. His bid fell through in January, when he was unable to pull the necessary funds and investors together to meet a lease agreement deadline with Glendale. Numerous potential owners cropped up after that, but the NHL went with RSE, which has several partners who were part of a previous effort to buy the team under the name Ice Edge Inc. RSE and the NHL moved toward finalizing the deal with Tuesdays initial meeting with Glendale officials. "The City Council will not be making a decision regarding the Coyotes until all pertinent information has been collected and reviewed and all the available options have been thoroughly studied," the city said in a statement. "This includes several bids the city is expected to receive this Friday (May 31) from qualified venue managers interested in operating the city owned Arena. Glendale is committed to moving forward on a plan that is in the best interests of our city and our citizens." While RSE and the NHL work on a deal with Glendale, Maloney will continue running the team as he has the past four years without an owner. Hell do it, though, with an eye on the future, knowing an owner could be in place and finally loosen the purse strings. "Weve been going kind of sideways the last two or three years in regards of really building something lasting," Maloney said. "Weve sort of been in survival mode here for quite some time and we know with the right, stable group, the hockey side is in very good position." Maloneys first priority will be to sign Tippett. A master technician and one of the games best defensive minds, he came to the desert in the midst of the ownership chaos in 2009. Playing with a roster low on front-line talent, he moulded the Coyotes into his grinding style, leading them to the playoffs three straight seasons and the franchises first NHL division title and trip to the Western Conference finals in 2011-12. Tippett would have no trouble finding a job elsewhere, but has maintained all along that he likes the group in Phoenix and hopes to stay with the Coyotes. "Were just going to see how it plays out over the next few weeks," Tippett said. "I came here on a leap of faith and Im not going to jump off that. We just want to make sure that all the pieces are in place here so ultimately you have a chance to win." Finally landing an owner would be the biggest piece toward that. ' ' '
