From a team building pov, Why would we want a small winger, even as talented as Kane, with a big cap hit (6.3mil)?

If we are trading for someone with a cap hit like that I would want a top 6 forward with size, preferably a center. These are things that are much bigger priorities up front.

Plus we have a far less expensive winger in the Kane mold already on the roster.......Ennis.
I'm not sure if you watched the NHL last year, Ennis is a center. He was drafted at center, and he ripped up the league at center over a decent stretch of games.

You don't have to be 6+ feet tall to be a center. That's a myth. Besides, Kane IS bigger than Roy, so it's a size upgrade.
