The Canadian Rockies don't have nothin' on Winnipeg's latest molehill. Evander Kane, frequent focus of manufactured controversy (see: cash brick phone), is apparently up to no good again. His crime? Not reporting to Jets training camp... three days early.
Seriously? This is what you have to cover, Winnipeg Sun? The new NHL season is starting up, finally the lockout's over, and you're fruiting up that a player hasn't come to camp yet when camp hadn't even started?
Considering he’s only a three-hour flight away in Vancouver, some are wondering why he still wasn’t on the ice in Winnipeg on Thursday, although it’s believed he will be there on Friday. Captain Andrew Ladd used Twitter earlier this week to poke some fun at his teammate, asking where he was.
Horrors. He's but a three hour flight away, and he's not shown up to something that hasn't started yet? The nerve of some people! You know... like Kyle Wellwood, who also wasn't ...

One thing it proved to me was that hockey is still a big deal in Winnipeg.
While many are speaking out boldly in other markets to boycott the shortened NHL season...
He sucker punched Aaron Ward. He destroyed Blair Betts' face with a blindside hit. He ate up cap space and was the epitome of irrelevance before blaming the Rangers and demanding a trade during his (thankfully) short time with the Rangers.
There are many reasons to despise Donald Brashear. And now we can add one more. The 41 year old Brashear is currently plating in the...
Believe it or not, Donald Brashear is still playing hockey. He's currently competing in a semi-pro league in Quebec. At age 41, Brashear is clearly over the hill. But this clip from last night shows he's still pretty good at sucker-punching opposing players:
Once an idiot, always an idiot.

For all those Winnipeg Jets fans who were Toronto Maple Leafs fans in the interim between the Jets first NHL team and second NHL team, there must have been alot of groaning going on when the Jets signed another former Maple Leaf player to the fold.
