P.S. not to give the rumor any stock (I hate when one thing on Twitter gives a ridiculous rumor legs) but IF, and I do mean IF E Kane wanted a trade, I would pull the trigger on a Kane for Eberle trade in an instant. The Oilers have a lot of highly skilled forwards that arent extremely physical. Kane could really fit into their young corps and add a dimension that they are missing in their youngsters. Eberle is a fantastic talent and is absolutely clutch. His passing and hands are sublime, and he can put the puck in the net too.

Honestly, if Kane did truly want out, I'd be fine with it because chances are we'd be getting a very good young player in return.

Yeah. I don't want him to go. I see him as an Iginla with less goalscoring upside, but there are plenty of interesting young players that I think other teams would deal to get Kane. However, if he finds a way to start picking corners, this kid could make anyone who trades him look foolish.

Well, this was nice and quick.

The player's agent, Craig Oster, refuted such gossip.

"Iíve spoken with Evander and this is completely untrue," Oster said. "Neither he nor us have talked about a trade. Evander is very excited to be in Winnipeg and about his future with Winnipeg."

Hoping there's no truth behind these rumor's... Evander Kane's a good core guy to build the team around.

Kane will thrive on a line with burmi and antro and he will also thrive at the Palimino Club

@jduppal seems to be connected to Kane in some way. A lot of Kane's tweets have mentioned him.

From the sound of @jduppal's tweet to Daren Millard, it didn't sound like the "report" was outright false, just that there was more to it.

I'm still not sure what's going on.

Looks like I was wrong. Like that's never happened a few million times before.

Still, either this guy is his agent or he isn't. Which is it?

Whatever website puts out garbage that somehow tries to rationalize a Kane for Bourque trade should be shut down.

Whoever wrote that should just stop following hockey forever.

Doesn't necessarily mean it's bunk. What else would you expect them to say?

Well, in two years of watching him in Atlanta, he NEVER came off like that.

Besides, since when to divas listen to classical music?

With Buff's off ice issues, and now this Kane talk (although everyone's denied it and we don't know for sure about Kane's image in the locker room), it sure didn't take long to get some soap opera drama going.

I thought this kind of crap would have taken a lot longer. Color me disappointed.
