Asking Price : Evander Kane

Continuing to speculate over players I'd like to see wearing a Sabres uniform let's look at the ( with Respect ) other Mr Kane

It's widely known that he is not exactly the home crowds favorite guy. A long history of discontent among the fanbase with Kane and a general discontent with the team as a whole could be, admittedly slim, basis to dial area code 204, ask for Mr Chevaldayof and kick the tyres, as it were.

vitals

  • 22yrs old. 6'2". 88kg (195lbs for those of you stuck in the dark ages )
  • 5.25mil per year til 2018-19, no NTC.
  • This is his 5th full* NHL season.
  • 195 points in 316 career games, made up of 97 goals( 13 with the man advantage ), 98 assists good for 0.6 points per game.

He's not quite on the level of Mr Skinner, whom we looked at the other day, but still hard to argue he's a liability. Especially on a team who are lucky to must 0.6 points per game.

What's he worth?

Winnipeg are currently 23rd league wide and 12th in the West.

12th league wide in Goals scored, which was a surprise if I'm honest. They're ahead of the playoff bound Canadiens, Rangers, Kings and all four current wild card place holders ( Coyotes, Wild, Blue Jackets and Red Wings ). They seem to be doing ok in that department.

They're 26th league wide for goals against which is a step back toward reality.

So they could probably do with a boost on Defense and maybe a goalie worth a damn. Pavlec (career save% : .906) and Montoya (career save% : .910) are not going to win you anything.

That in mind let's have a stab in the dark, throw some names around and hope wemake something that looks like a trade.

To WPG

  1. Jhonas Enroth
  2. Brian Flynn
  3. 2nd rnd pick ( Jets via MIN)

To BUF

  1. Evander Kane
  2. Adam Lowry (prospect)

That's where I'd start.

I'd escalate to Either Hackett/Lieuwen instead of Enroth if they sent a 2nd back.
