I would love to have Kane, he is exactly the kind of player the Wings need.
The Jets will be profitable when they make the playoffs and Kane is the guy to lead them to the promised land

They're likely to file for salary arbitration, then.

Renaud Lavoie via twitter: Lavoie heard from a player on the Jets that Evander Kane doesn’t want to negotiate a new deal.

Edit: sorry too slow ha but maybe they end up trading his rights?

He is young, the Red Wings are a great organization for him to grow up in, although I still say Stewart is a stronger and meaner version of the same type player who could be had for less in a trade and against the cap, but I would trade for either of them, they re exactly the type of player we need; young tough sniping power forward, Stewart would be even more ideal because of the right-handed

Now that the rumor says he wants out, I would love to get him.

I just again wonder that someone who might be in our division would trade him to us. Plus the cost.

Just watch out, because he might be Holland's target over Parise. It is possible.

Not because he thinks it Kane is better than Parise, just that it might be more manageable to get him.

I wouldn't sign him but a manageable trade would be okay.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I doubt it.

Still like the idea of Wheeler.

Spectors Hockey made a good point, Kane has no leverage to force a trade except a holdout or bailing to the KHL. They could risk it and take the RFA compensation or hope he comes back and the second year experience is much better.

Hes a potential superstar that the wings could build around for the future. Much younger than any other option. I wouldnt have any prospect off limits except maybe Smith to get him

I would add Nyquist and Jarnkrok to that list, but other than that, it's fair game.

Nyquist is 2 years older, and Kane already has a 30 goal NHL season and nearly 60 points under his belt while being fast and a tough player. If that trade is offered straight up I take Kane every single time.

Yeah, but there would be other factors in my opinion. Such as if the player fits well in the locker room or if one is likely to be more cap friendly.

Sometimes if the player is projected to put up 20% more points in the same position and role... and they want 70% more money, I would pass. I really don't know what a long term deal with Kane would llook like versus a long term with Gustav. I just assume if they had the same role Kane would get you more goals.

First of all $5M would be a 1st, 2nd & 3rd round pick...

Holland would NEVER do that...Besides, I don't think many players are worth that much in compensation... He would be better than Hudler for sure, but $5M? Whew!

EDIT: Of course that being said, Holland did say he would trade for "rights" if the right deal came up! If Holland indeed traded for Kane's rights then I would be very excited! I would ship a 4th, J. Andersson & J. Mursak for his rights...call me crazy!

-1 for saying I doubt Kane is higher than Parise on Holland's priority list (if indeed Kane's on it at all), and that I like the idea of Blake Wheeler coming aboard?

I thought I heard on the radio today that Evander Kane's agent is denying that his client wanted to be traded.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

From http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=398829


The reports of Evander Kane wanting out of Winnipeg appear to be greatly exaggerated.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff has met with Kane's representatives from Newport Sports Management and dismissed the rumours of Kane's unhappiness with the team.
