Last I checked, Kane was the face of the franchise.

Not sure how you define face of the franchise, but going by jersey's he'd be 3/4th behind Buff, Ladd, and maybe Pavs / Wheeler.

If you're thinking best player, I'd put him at about 3/4th again, behind Wheeler, Bogosian, and maybe Buff.

If you're talking advertising, Buff, Ladd, and Pavalec are all at least as prevalent as him on billboards around town.

The last thing Dallas needs is another winger, but I would be all kinds of warm n fuzzy if we managed to snag Evander Kane.

I'm a big fan of Evander Kane. I think this request is a bunch of crap started by someone who probably wants to have some fun with people and see how far this goes.

Oh and LOL at Schiefele being ready to be the face of the franchise next year. I watched him play against WBS in the playoffs and while he's a top prospect, he's not ready to be the face of an NHL team just yet. (BTW, I still wish Winnipeg would've taken Couturier with that pick)

5 years is a fairly large gap in ages and Kane still has a lot of work to do to reach his expected potential, I think that Kane could be putting up more points on a consistent basis. It definitely wouldn't work for the Jets to trade Kane straight up for Ryan is what I'm trying to say.

Seems like every time there's a few trade proposals on here for Kane a random journalist/reporter suggests that Kane wants out and Dreger has shot it down twice now. Once it was Renaud Lavoie and now it's a random CTV reporter in Saskatchewan; the Lavoie report coincided with an Eklund report and the CTV report comes at a relatively random point in time.
No reason for the Jets to lie to Dreger, it shouldn't hurt his trade value because I doubt there would be many teams not interested. Anyway, I doubt there's any truth to this. The CTV reporter can't even spell Scheifele right and this is nitpicking but saying first overall pick by the Jets isn't right unless she's saying first ever pick or first round pick.

A no-name reporter in Regina is not a legitimate source and this is not a rumor. I don't think this is remotely thread-worthy.

I'm not saying I have any knowledge that Kane is or isn't willing to sign in Winnipeg. I just don't recognize pure speculation for media-whoring as a credible source.

Or rumours of a player wanting out of a city are always the case...

Hope it's not true, but Kane's agent and the team have both called the rumours false. Unless someone like Mckenzie, Dreger or Lebrunt reports it's true, I'll stick with the teams statement for now.

Is this Evander Kane wants out of Winnipeg rumor #20 or #21? I lost count.

Where are your stats on jersey sales? I'm not saying you're wrong but my experience has been that Kane jerseys are far more popular in Winnipeg than Pavelec or Wheeler jerseys and not that far behind Buff and Ladd either. He's certainly one of the faces of the franchise - I don't think any of the other Jets players overshadow him in that respect.

Just a thought, and I'm not even sure I'd do this as an Oil fan, but Yakupov for Kane?

Hall - Nuge - Eberle
Kane - Gagner - Hemsky

Kane's a better fit than Yakupov on the Oilers IMO.

Does Scheifele even realistically project to be better than Kane is now?

The hole face of the franchise thing doesn't really make sense to me. If he asked for a trade, it would just mean that he wants to be on another team, I don't see how he would be working the demands to be the face of the franchise angle... Any reasonable team he would want to be apart of would have stars that are far more established than himself unless he suddenly wants to go to Columbus or something.

Kane seems like a ******. I wouldn't be surprised If he asked for a trade, but being face of the franchise? Haha, he ain't that good.. What a joke.

I think Oilers have bigger holes to fill, their problem is not offense, at least top-6.

I'd be worried that all these bogus rumors may make it more difficult for Kane to negotiate for a NTC in the future. A few here and there won't do anything, but enough may give a team pause.

Why is Hocke.yy Insid.er without dots censored? It's not like he is a swear word, just another Eklund. It's funny, because on Twitter people were saying H.... I... was a bettter source than Dreger.

there is still no good source to actually suggest that kane wants out. Everytime this rumor pops up, it gets shot down by good sources.

so closed.
