Things that need to be said: Koivu, Bobby Ryan, Evander Kane, etc.

Winnipeg Sun: Blake Wheeler is a leader and wants Evander Kane to join him

#481763057 / gettyimages.comIt interesting to see how this turns out during training camp. I suppose the fans shouldn't look too deeply into this. I would imagine that Wheeler and Kane will be "fine" during the season. Ted Wyman, Winnipeg Sun -- Evander Kane needs to step up his game and be a leader. Good for Wheeler. This is a player who has developed into leader...

Things still uneasy for Evander Kane, Winnipeg Jets

They may not have to deal with insane, dysfunctional scenarios like ownership trying to sell the team to three different parties secretly, but things are far from great for the Winnipeg Jets. There had been speculation for a long, long while about whether or not Evander Kane was a part of Winnipeg’s future. Sure, he’s signed through the 2017-18 season, but after the constant...

2 Kanes, 1 Cup?

That’s right sports fans. The 11th ranked left-winger in the NHL is rumored to be in the doghouse, disappointed that the Jets are predicted to end up in last place again. What does this have to do with Chicago? Many teams in the NHL are sitting around, waiting for a Stan Bowman phone call as the Hawks need to get under the salary cap. Winnipeg, believe it or not, is astonishingly...

Evander Kane makes little sense for Predators

If the Predators want to get more offensive via trade, there's one more player out there who could help them. Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets is a young scorer who would complement first-line winger James Neal on the second line. If character wasn't an issue, Kane, a former 30-goal scorer who is just 22 years old, would be a great fit. Sadly, character is an issue for...
