      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Evander Kane will not negotiate contract with Winnipeg

Recommended Posts

He's a left wing. He's going to replace Danny or Booth on the 1st or 2nd? Where will he fit in?

i havent heard great things about kane....

when he took number 9 when he went to wpg wasnt a good sign...there doesnt haft to be a rule for you not to do something, especially when little took a different number

my friend told me that his sister was at the same club with him downtown and he was so arrogant and self obsorbed....but he was buying everyone drinks

maybe it would be different on a veteran team but i am not 100% sold on this guy

Kevin Bacon and Rob Lowe are actors.

Rob Lowe called Winnipeg a hellhole.

Rob Lowe and Hilary Duff were among celebrities seen in LA for the Stanley Cup.

Hillary Duff is married to Mike Comrie.

Mike Comrie refused to sign as a RFA in EDM.

Yup. It checks out.

No...He wouldn't.

When are people going to start to realize that it takes a unique player to be successful with Ryan Kesler and that David Booth AND Evander Kane, guys that like to carry the puck to the net, are NOT at all those type of players.

Kesler had his initial breakout with Sundin and Demitra, two guys that loved to PASS the puck, making a pass first centerman much more successful.

Not saying we could land these guys but Marty St. Louis or PA Parentau are guys that could work well with Kesler.

Listen...IF and it's a BIG IF, Evander Kane is available, MG will do what he can to acquire him if at all possible. However, Booth would have to be involved in the deal for cap and style reasons and that is just fine with me.

I watch quite a few Jets games last season, and it seems that Kane is a little predictable; he does the same move at the opponent's blue line all the time. This scares me a lot because he's not at the level that Ovie was before being found out, and teams caught on near the end of the season. He isn't the player we need, especially since he isn't that play maker that we need for the 2nd line.

It's Winnipeg. The city the player lives in plays a role in his decision to sign with a team.

Kane would look fantastic playing for the Canucks... but I can't see what we would trade for him. Even if Pavelec bolts, I don't know why Luongo would play for Winnipeg, and I doubt Winnipeg would trade Kane for him anyway. The only real valuable chip we could play is Schneider. Perhaps Edler or Kesler, if MG was willing to part with them, but I highly doubt that would happen. That's about it.

Winnipeg would want a king's ransom for Kane. There's no way in hell the Canucks have what it takes without making our team significantly worse.

I hope this rumour is unfounded anyways. I like Kane, but if he pulls a stunt like this at 20 yrs old, it just confirms all the rumours about him being a self-absorbed dude.

I like Evander as a player as well. Yes, Evander was probably unhappy this season in Winnipeg, because in January there were rumours (probably false) that he didn't pay his restaurant bills or bar taps and after there were some war of words on his twitter account with him saying stuff like "ray charles to the bullish*t " to people talking smack about him on the website. Also, apparently he's known around Vancouver as cocky from his minor hockey/high school days (which rumours are also probably overblown and being cocky isisnt neccesairly a bad thing). However, if MG could pull this off words would not express how big of a deal this would be for the franchise.
