this coming from gary lawless of the winnipeg free press, if you dont feel like reading it ill highlight the main points:


1 the jets are having personal issues with kane ( ex. taking his girlfriend on road trips, the twitter picture)

2 lawless also states that while kane posses elite level talent, it is almost gauranteed that kane will not finish his new contract with winnipeg. and that if he continues acting the way he has been, then kane will be traded sooner rather than later.

3 even if the jets want to unload kane the asking price will still be high because lots of teams will be interested.


so what do yoyu guys think is evander kane still worth the high price it will take to land him?

He's worth it only if the price is right. Overpaying for him would be a mistake.

I see Kane as the face of the franchise. They have him locked up to a good deal and they should do everything in their power to keep him. I don't see Kane being traded until at least the last year of his contract.

Sounds good to me!

In all seriousness are the Jets going to move him? IMO I doubt it.

I was drinking with a guy from Winnipeg sometime in the summer. He was going on about 'old and new money' in Winnipeg, and of how the injection of wild NHLers making millions has otherwise disturbed their normally humble community. Needless to say I stopped listening after a while. He had nothing nice to say about Kane. He went on about his friend working at a bar that Kane frequented, apparently he's all ego and drives some kind of flashy sports car.

Anyways, I guess my point is that the Winnipeg community isn't exactly thrilled with who these athletes are as people. I understand it's an overstatement, but this was coming from a young guy (23) who believed these NHLers were wild. With that being said, I think it's completely plausible that Kane could be moved if only for the all important factor of public perception - especially in a recently established market.

The price for Kane will be too much for us, and really I could see us not being interested if these issue's people have with his attitude don't change.

I see them holding onto him longer than this, if more events happen then I could see them seriously looking at moving him, but right now the price is way too high for us to do.

Gary Lawless is not to be taken seriously. He stirs the pot to get people to read his crap and general opinion is that he's an idiot. Kane's reputation here is not nearly as bad as Lawless would have you believe.

While it's not completely rosy either, pretty much this. Even if Winnipeg does get fed up with him after feeling confident enough to sign him to a big deal, they'd ask for a significant return before they'd actually move him.

Alot of NHL'ers and hockey players in general are complete @$$holes. Growing up, the Junior A team in my area was full of a bunch of D-bags who only hung out amongst themselves, started fights, and created problems.
I remember adults in the community saying others should not be fighting with these players because the players could hurt their hands or get injured in a fight and it might jeopardize their chance at "making it".
I recall one night on Hockey NIght in Canada, Ron Mclean and the panel talking about a local guy who was playing in the NHL as one of the "good guys" in the game. They said he was always polite and willing to talk to them, however all his old friends in town said that he had turned into an A-hole once he made the show and wouldn't even hardley talk to them anymore.
I also talked to some buddies in the construction business who built a house for a current well known NHL'er who the country is in love with and they said he was a pretty big jerk and was always accusing everyone of taking advantage of him because he was a NHL player.
People talk about how NHL players are humble and not like NBA or NFL players, (any i have to agree they seem better behaved) but I think they are still young men making obsene amounts of money and have egos to go along with it.

Oh, I guess I'm wrong.


I'm not saying he doesn't have an attitude problem, but that's not a good example of his attitude problem. That was him quoting a line from a movie, someone not realizing it's a quote from a movie and taunting him about it, then him quoting another line in response which was clearly meant to be self-deprecating. The "don't act like you're not impressed" line, like it was in the movie, is usually brought out to jokingly act like you're not ashamed about something when you clearly are.

Again, not saying he doesn't have an attitude problem, just that this twitter exchange isn't a good example of it. In fact, it kind of makes me feel better about his attitude a little bit.

@elvis15
Yeah I'm definitely not saying there aren't problems, I just read that article a few days ago and it really irked me. Lawless presents extremely bold opinions as facts to get people talking and I feel that the way he presents it does turn people who don't know anything about Lawless against players like Kane here in Winnipeg and could eventually cause Kane to want to be relocated, and could even drive his value down because other teams would see how poorly he's being treated, know he wants out, and think he has a huge attitude problem on top of it.

Even if his attitude problem is as bad as Lawless seems to think it is, he's doing a great disservice to the team by putting it out there the way that he does. Whenever a player gets traded for attitude reasons there's always rumors and rumblings but I've never seen a journalist who's supposed to be credible come right out and bash that player like he's doing. To make matters worse he's the only person who writes about the Jets in the WFP, which is the only respected newspaper in this city.

Your friend is jealous, plain and simple. He's not speaking for the "community" - there are ~700,000 people in Winnipeg, if I'm not mistaken.

I actually think there's prudence to the article. Lawless is very well-respected. If we wanted him, we'd probably need to be prepared to give up Edler & Raymond, and maybe some sort of conditional pick, if they weren't able to sign Edler.

I thought it was funny. he just wants to be like money Mayweather.

Does his failure of a stint in the khl reduce his trade value?

Kane isn't going anywhere anytime soon. Winnipeg would want more than any other team would offer. They will wait a few seasons until the demand meets their asking price.

Kane would be awesome in Van but is character is an issue for sure


I'm here, never left ;)That said, I didn't bash this "proposal" because it wasn't a proposal, just asking what it would take to get him. I've been negative towards some peoples proposals for Kane, your's included, because everything I've seen on here has involved him coming to Vancouver, and all of them have are done up as if Winnipeg is interested in giving him away for nothing.IF Kane is traded in the near future (say 1-2 years), teams would have to pay through the nose to get him. As a Canucks fan, would you be happy with Gillis overpaying to get him? Probably not, as they are still considered cup contenders.
