PARIS -- Marianne Vos of the Netherlands won the inaugural womens version of the Tour de France on Sunday, a 55-mile (88.5 km) circuit on the famous cobblestones of ParisChamps-Elysees. "I felt quite good," the Rabobank-Liv team rider said after the race. "My team was upfront all the time -- we were in every breakaway so I could stay relaxed. It gave me extra motivation to be there in the final sprint and to push maximum power." Vos teammate Kirsten Wild finished second and Leah Kirchman of Canada was third. In this first edition of "La Course by le Tour de France," 120 women from 20 teams raced thirteen laps of Paris broad tree-lined boulevard for a prize of (euro)22,500. For many of the professional cyclists, being able to race in Paris was a gift in itself. "Its fantastic to be here, on the Champs-Elysees and to have this opportunity for women cycling to show ourselves in front of this crowd and in front of the whole world," Vos said. In the crowd, cycling fans were equally enthusiastic. Dirk Dillen, from Belgium, said it was about time this race was created. "Women do the same efforts as guys, so they deserve to get more in the picture. And its a very good thing that they can ride here in the picture." British Olympic silver medallist Emma Pooley said she hopes this race will be the start of something bigger. "It will take time and it has to be sustainable," said Pooley. "It has to have the viewers and the sponsors. I think this is a really good test." Tour de France Director Jean-Francois Pescheux said he was already looking to the future. "The next step will be, first to consolidate as much as possible this race, to make it sustainable in the long run, and then to try and organize a race with different stages which would really respond to the demands of professional female cyclists."

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported a proposed deal between the Pens and Canucks that he credited to multiple sources. “A proposed deal would send Kesler to the Penguins in exchange for Brandon Sutter, two 2014 draft picks — likely a first- and third-round — and the Canucks choice of defensemen Simon Despres or Brian Dumoulin,” Rossi wrote on Saturday. Rossi continued to say that it is possible the deal could involve another player going in either direction, but that Penguins GM Ray Shero was only looking to acquire Kesler. Goalies Gone Wild The Minnesota Wild are apparently very much in the market for an upgrade between the pipes. According to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Wild GM Chuck Fletcher is after a netminder and was even in on discussions for former Buffalo keeper Ryan Miller before getting priced out. So, who fits the bill for Minnys playoff push? Russo drops a lengthy list that spans from new Sabres acquisition Jarsolav Halak to established number ones like Martin Brodeur and Cam Ward to enigmatic Oilers netminder Ilya Bryzgalov. Snowfall Warning? Could this be Paul Stastnys last week as a member of the Colorado Avalanche? The Denver Posts Adrian Dater writes that if the AAvs are unable to get the 28-year-old re-upped before the deadline, they could deal him rather than risk losing him for nothing over the summer as an unrestricted free agent.dddddddddddd "You want to keep winning and dont want to break that chemistry, but at the same time if something happens, it happens. Its just part of the business. Some things I cant control and I just worry about what I can control — and thats playing hockey," Stastny told the Post. Dater believes the Avs could probably expect a young defenseman in return and one that might still have time left on an existing deal or, if not, a pending restricted free agent. Call Me, Maybe? Jaromir Jagr is an intriguing name to watch prior to Wednesday. The 42-year-old just became the NHLs seventh 700-goal scorer and – as a pending unrestricted free agent – could be an attractive veteran addition for many teams as they push towards the post-season. But the iconic Czech winger cautions that any team looking for his services should probably run it by him first. “The situation with me is I think if any team would try to trade for me they would probably ask me first if I wanted to go there,” Jagr told the Star-Ledger after the New Jersey Devils Saturday win over the New York Islanders. “I dont have a contract (for next season) and Im 42 years old. What if I decided to go home? Nobody is going to give any draft picks or players for me if they dont know. “Same thing happened when I went to Boston (from Dallas last season). They called before. So Im probably going to know whats going on before.” ' ' '
