      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.

[Report] Jets, Kane working on lengthy deal

Jets, Kane working on lengthy deal - via @winnipegnewshttp://shar.es/tlh3N via @sharethis

THE Winnipeg Jets and Evander Kane's representatives are working on a long-term contract that could see the player signed for up to six years.

Negotiations are moving at a methodical pace with both sides motivated to strike a lengthy pact and get it completed well before training came according to multiple sources involved in the deal.

Contracts signed by New York Islanders sniper John Tavares and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel are being used as examples. Both players signed long-term packages coming out of their entry level contracts, Tavares a six-year deal worth $33 million and Kessel a five-year pact worth $27 million.

If for some reason, and at this point that seems highly unlikely, the negotiations turn to a shorter bridge-type contract, Kane's deal could be along the lines of the two-year pacts signed by James Neal and Logan Couture worth $5.75 million following the expiration of their entry level deals.

Following his 30-goal campaign last year, Kane has put himself in a position to hit a financial home run. The 20-year-old had 30 goals and 27 assists last season and while his game needs some rounding out, he has shown the ability to produce at a high level in the NHL.

Kessel scored 36 goals and 24 assists in his third pro season on a superior Boston Bruins team. Tavares had 31 goals and 50 assists in the last year of his entry level deal before his six-year deal kicked in.

There has been some talk this summer that Kane is reluctant to return to Winnipeg but the tone of these negotiations would suggest the exact opposite and that his actual desire is to become a franchise player with the Jets.

I suspect that a bunch of agents are currently trying to get their players on extensions to long term front loaded contracts that probably won't be permitted in the new CBA.

Funny that whine the league and NHLPA are duking this out, the individual teams and players are going to be doing everything they can to circumvent it by getting in deals under the wire.

I have no idea why the league hasn't put out a mandate that no new contracts will be accepted by the league until a settlement is in place (totally within their right to do so). It looks bad for their owners to be giving these huge deals during negotiations.

I hope he re-signs for 5-6 years!

Once his game rounds out and he acquires more dimensions to his play, he could be a dominant player!

GO JETS GO!

Re-upping Kane is the most important thing the Jets have to do this summer. Get him on this supposed 6-year deal, good $$$ ($5m?), and build around him.

so Kane is pretty much signing right till he'll be a UFA, doesn't really change anything although I'd be careful if I was Kane as if the Jets trade him Kane loses all his power of holding out as a RFA...

I'll say 23mil for 4 years. 5.75mil/year. This kid is going to be one of the best goal scorers in the league in the near future.
