Why don't we sign Evander Kane, he's from Vancouver and his cap hit can't be too bad can it?

You would have to send him an offer sheet, and the Jets would surely match.

Best route to go is to trade for him if he really does want out of the peg.

How is this speculation? But if we must go through this it's Because he's an RFA and Winnipeg matches any offer

Edit: Wow you guys are fast

He is an RFA so the jets can match our offer (which probably wouldn't be much more than $4 mil per) and if they dont match it we have to give up high draft picks. Also Kane is known to be quite self-centered.... that is not the type of personality that GMMG is looking for in the room.

Dammit!

Thought the thread meant the Jets signed Kane and the OP had forgotten the [ ].

Instead, its just another troll.

This would be a better fit for the Proposals forum rather than this one.

Evander Kane, as some of the above posters have stated already, is a RFA. I'm certain GM Kevin Cheveldayoff would match any offersheets. Kane is one of Winnipeg's most promising players, and few Jets fans wish to part ways with him.

The greatest segue into a weather segment.

If Gillis trades Luongo and doesn't receive a roster player back, he would most certainly be fleeced by the fans here. In fact I think if Gillis could only trade Luongo for nothing in return he would rather die during erotic asphyxiation ala David Carradine, the only difference is David likely didn't want to actually die.

Cory Schneider for Evander Kane.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Alright I'll give you a crash course.

Via Ask.com:

Unrestricted NHL Free Agents

  • The 27-or-7 Benchmark
    As of 2008, any player whose contract has expired can declare himself an unrestricted free agent if he is at least 27 years old or has at least seven years of service as an NHL player.

    Between 2005 and 2008, the age of unrestricted free agency declined from 31 to 27. More details here.
  • July 1
    The free agency period begins on the first day of July. At that point, an unrestricted free agent is free to negotiate and sign a contract with any NHL team.
  • No Compensation
    Teams losing unrestricted free agents do not receive any compensation.

    Under the old collective agreement, which expired in 2005, draft picks were awarded as compensation.

Restricted Free Agents


Players who are no longer considered "entry-level" but do not qualify as unrestricted free agents become restricted free agents when their contracts expire.


  • Qualifying Offers
    The current team must extend a "qualifying offer" to a restricted free agent to retain negotiating rights to that player.

    Players who earned less than $660,000 in the previous season must be offered 110 percent of last season's salary. Players making up to $1 million must be offered 105 percent. Players making over $1 million must be offered 100 percent.

    If the qualifying offer is not made, the player becomes an unrestricted free agent.

    If the player rejects a qualifying offer, he remains a restricted free agent.

Offer Sheets and Restricted Free Agents

  • The Offer Sheet is a Contract
    An offer sheet is a contract negotiated between an NHL team and a restricted free agent on another team.

    The offer sheet includes all the terms of a standard player contract, including length, salary, bonuses, etc.

    A player who has signed a qualifying offer or is going to salary arbitration with his original team cannot sign an offer sheet.
  • Accept or Decline
    When an offer sheet is signed, the player’s current (original) team is notified. That team can keep the player under the terms of the offer sheet, or decline and let the player join the new team under those terms.

    The original team has seven days to make its decision.
  • No Turning Back
    Once an offer sheet has been signed by a player, the original team cannot negotiate a new contract under different terms or trade the player’s rights. It’s only options are to accept or decline the offer sheet.
  • The No-Trade Clause
    If the original team chooses to accept, or “match” the offer sheet, the player cannot be traded for one year.
  • Compensation
    If the original team declines the offer sheet and loses the player, it receives draft picks from the player’s new team as compensation.

    Compensation for losing a restricted free agent is on a sliding scale, depending on how much the new contract is worth. The exact numbers change every year.

    The most a team can lose for signing an RFA is four first-round draft picks.

    For 2011, a team signing a restricted free agent to a contract worth more than $7,835,219 per season loses four first-round picks to the player's old team.

    For a contract worth $6,268,176 or more per year, the acquiring team gives up two first-round picks, one second rounder, and one third.

    There are another four levels of compensation, going down to a contract worth up to $1,034,249 per year, for which there is no compensation.

Salary Arbitration

A team or player can file for salary arbitration as a mechanism to settle contract disputes.


A team can take a player to arbitration once in his career, and cannot ask for a salary reduction greater than 15 percent. Players can ask for salary arbitration as often as they want.

December 1 Deadline

Restricted free agents must sign NHL contracts by December 1, or they are not eligible to play in the NHL for the rest of the season.

Anyone that listened to Kane during his interview from MOJ's charity golf event a couple days ago get the sense this guy wants out of Winnipeg? Could just be a young guy not great at interviews but when asked about the signing of Jokinen refered to it as great for "them" alot of "they" "Winnipeg".. very vague, i got the sense he's not happy there 1 bit.
