      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.

Recommended Posts

http://www.winnipegf...-184226401.html

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?

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.

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.

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.
