If it was a deal for a ton of futures then I'd be down. Multiple high picks + Scheifele/Trouba I'd consider hard.

But Kane+ for OV jut doesn't make any sense for us at all. Kane already looks better as a player than last year when he scored 30 on the second line with a revolving door of line mates. And he's almost half the price...
I'd say no to that in a second myself. I don't believe that the Jets have that much extra cap space once raises are given out to some of our RFA's. And a guy with a 9.5 million dollar salary is going to be tough to build around when he's making 15% of your teams payroll.
