That seems likely since Holmgren makes moves that seem boneheaded.
We already have 2 power forward wingers, why do we need more?
IMHO, trades should be focused on improving the slow, offensively challanged defense.
I do not particularly like Kane. His apparent ego and attitude problems also scare me.
But he is far from just a power forward... and is better than Hartnell and Simmonds, and can really put a puck in the net. He is also only 22 years old as of august. His D is also ok... better than Simmonds and better than Hartnell currently. He is on Pegs 2nd PK pairing.
Last three season factored:
10-11: 21 goals, 48 points (as a 19 year old)
11-12: 33 goals, 63 points (as a 20 year old)
12-13: 29 goals, 56 points (as a 21 year old)
The guy could legitimately become a 35-35 guy consistently and could be a great fit with G and V.
