Evander Kane is a fucking beast.

If Gillis can get him out of Winnipeg he should make every effort to do so.

IIRC there were rumours of him wanting out of that organization a while ago. I think a change of scenery would be great for him. Especially into an organization like the Canucks!

I'd sacrifice my grandma's left nut if Kane was available for the deal you just posted.

That deal would EASILY be in Vancouver's favor and I'd be pretty shocked if Winnipeg would actually go for that.

I doubt they would.

We already have Archibald...can a hockey team handle two black dudes? I think the universe might implode in on itself with two black guys on one hockey team...

:D

Honestly though, I'd love to get our hands on Kane, but a 22 year hard nosed old goal scorer is probably about as close to untouchable for the Jets as it can get.

During Kevin Lowe's "experimental" phase a few years back, didn't he have like 3-5 African Canadians on his team?

Not that it really matters. The whole point is in improving one's team.

Remember the old joke with a book of paper matches with two burnt match heads - Edmonton Oilers team photo in the Grunt Fehr/Pokey Reddick era.

Even with Evander Kane, I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with the idea of trading Shinkaruk or Horvat. They are untouchables in my opinion.......although in all fairness, Sheldon Kennedy was an untouchable once upon a time as well. :!:

Horvat and Shinkaruk are almost guaranteed to be impact players at some point in my opinion. The question however, is if they can become impact players while still on entry level contracts.........while the twins, Kes, and Lou are still playing at their current levels. If such a situation were to occur, our chances of winning a Stanley Cup would be as good as it was between 2010-2012.

Negatory.

Losing Edler and not replacing him with an equal calibre D man would be too much of a hit for our defense to absorb.

Edler, Burrows, and a 1st for Kane and Byfuglien. (since we're in fantasy land. :P)

Yup, if not for Edler's NTC and high salary. With Enstrom, Bogo, Buff and rookie Trouba, I'm not sure Chevy is looking to beef up his D. Particularly if he's sacrificing his top offensive asset without a top six returning.

It's too early to say Hunter and Bo will be sure-fire pros, but I can see why its easy to get excited. To acquire an existing top six - potential franchise sniper - there's got to be a significant piece going back.

Dealing one of the top prospects for a player of Kane's caliber is a no-brainer, particularly with this clubs prospect pool. None of Van's kids should be untouchable.

Yes, the only reason I remember this is... my old buddy GM posted some very interesting pics in that regard. :mex:
