Like Stamkos yeah, but its still a long contract for a guy rumored to not want to play there any more. Would you sign 6 years in a place you hated? Maybe the rumors were bunk.

The article doesn't say he is signed at all. It says they are discussing a deal and talks are still ongoing. Can people read these days?

...the contract isn't done. Maybe edit the title. Perhaps to "Speculation: Evander Kane And Jets Closing In On Six-Year Deal" haha.

My bad, should have said speculation.

EDIT: corrected the title now.

But I thought that he wanted out because Winnipeg is nothing but a dead city.

In the future Winnipeg media needs to shut the hell up. I'm convinced that it was the local media that orchestrated the rumours that Kane didn't want to remain a Jet.

Yes, hockey is big news there now that they've got an NHL team again, but that's no excuse to drag players through the mud. It's just going to create an environment which will steer free agents clear of that city.

Talk about a mis-leading title.

100% agree. The media here can be viscous sometimes. It's almost painful at moments.

Great for our team. Keep in mind Lawless reported this though, 50% of the time he's wrong every time.

Woah, wonder what the money will be.

Good for them getting him locked up long term though.

Not sure where you're going with this. The original rumour about Kane not wanting to negotiate a new deal was started by Renaud Lavoie, who claimed he was informed about this by a current Jets player.

The Winnipeg media has done its fair share of rumour-mongering over the past year, but they certainly weren't the ones fanning the flames in this case. If anything, they did a pretty good job dispelling this silly rumour.
