While many NHLers were busy filling out change of address forms, some top candidates of this year’s free bureau class are still up for grabs. Meanwhile, Spain made history at Euro 2012 and the Blue Jays celebrated Canada Day at home with an All-Star nod for Jose Bautista.
1. It was a furious day of movement in the NHL, but the “stars” of this year’s free agent class aren’t moving anywhere just yet, as noted by our NHL free agent tracker. Zach Parise, Ryan Suter and Martin Brodeur have yet to announce where they will be playing next season, but for those that did move, there was plenty of reaction from fans. CBCSports senior hockey writer Tim Wharnsby also analyzed what July 1 meant to the Canadian clubs of the NHL.
2. La Furia Roja finished a rare triumph in Ukraine — Spain is the first nation to win consecutive European Championship titles as well as a third straight international title, having won the 2010 World Cup in between. CBC Sports soccer writer Ben Rycroft examines the question many are now asking: is this the ideal team ever?
3. The Toronto Blue Jays were at home for Canada Day, and played host to a memorable, if not unfortunate, loss to the Los Angeles Angels. Earlier in the day, Jays’ slugger Jose Bautista was named to the American League all-star contingent, while an animated Mike Sciocia was featured in the nation’s birthday edition of the CBCSports.ca Caption Contest as the Angels’ manager was tossed from the game.
