Sad day for hockey, great day for Jet's fans. Really glad they were able to get a deal done, I was in a tree stand last night checking my phone constantly for updates, twitterverse was convinced the Kane deal would not happen. Great news to wake up to.

If Kane really loved Winnipeg he would have signed for 7 years... j/k


Love the term and it's at a very good cap hit to boot. Love the fact that we have a lot of our core guys locked up, and look forward to locking up Bogo and Wheeler next year.

Doubt it!

I think they're already working on the "He's unhappy with his contract and wants out" rumours.

I heard the Jets offered him 7 years but he only wanted 6 because he didn't like the city.


Excited about this signing. Key player is locked up, only bodes well for the team. Looking forward to what the Jets will accomplish inn the next few years.

What would you overlook at 50 goals? Murder? Give him something to aim for...

I did find it strange that there was a "Evander Kane proposal thread" on the main board, but no proposals or threads about Jamie Benn.

And now, Benn is still unsigned while Kane is locked up for 6 years.

WAY too much money, but Boston set the bar for these types of players with the Marchand and Lucic overpayments.

He needs to start playing better. He has been very underwhelming for the most part. Yes, he scored 30 goals one year, but he's extremely streaky, selfish and one-dimensional. He has all the tools, now we get to see if he can put them together.

So then what DO you think he should have been paid?

It isnt way too much
I figured 5 so 250k isnt very much over

As for streaky, show me one true goal scorer that isnt

He's shown steady improvement throughout 3 years, and he got 30 goals as a 20 year-old.

He's going to be worth this price, if Scheifele reaches his potential, that'll make Kane light it up. And hasn't somebody on this board posted some stats that shows Kane isn't one-dimensional?

I think it was Truck, not entirely sure, though.

Garret is usually the man with the stats for all occasions.

Let's not forget playing in front of Edmonton/ Calgary crowds versus Winnipeg crowds is night and day. As a player would you want to play in an atmosphere as quiet as a morgue or in Winnipeg. no brainer.

Truck and I are both stat guys cut from a similar vine... He's better at it than me but I bother you guys with it more

I think it may have been both.

If you guys ever request real nicely I will try to look up anything

Don't you see, though? After the initial investment of 4-5 years, the STH won't be willing to re-up their commitment because they'll no longer be interested in a losing team. We can see that with the Bombers this year. I mean, look at how empty the stadium is, and they've been playing like crap the last 2 1/2 years.

Have you ever seen a game in Edmonton? There is no building in the NHL that's as loud as Rexall Place when the Oilers are winning. None that even come close. My ears were honestly ringing for two days after the 9-2 win over the Blackhawks last year. The noise level when the Oilers went to the finals in 2006 was enough to permanently damage your hearing within minutes.

I understand that the Jets 1.0 and the Oilers dynasty had a rivalry, but this is a different Jets franchise, and that dynasty is long dead. The Edmonton bashing on this forum is absolutely ridiculous, especially considering that Winnipeg really is just a smaller version of Edmonton. The cities are almost identical.

$2-2.5 million/season at most. That's all he's earned thus far.

Winnipeg proved this year that we are amongst the loudest crowds in the league, and I've been to Oilers game; we blow that crowd out of the water hands down. Again, this is a Winnipeg forum and most people aren't going to agree with you regarding your pro-Edmonton comments.

That's absurd.
You're more than entitled to your opinion, but if you were a GM your team would struggle to retain talent.
Thankfully we have Chevy in change

Edmonton has a raucous crowd. They shouldn't be lumped in with Calgary and Ottawa - those arenas are quiet. Well, Ottawa's actually pretty loud when the Habs or Leafs are in town. It's important for the Sens to score early in those games to get the crowd out of it...

No amount of Edmonton bashing is ever enough.

Speaking as a born-and-bred Winnipegger living in Edmonton.
