Settle a bet: Kane to BUF

I don't want Kane traded but this buddy of mine who is a sabres fan thinks bowman would accept this deal...

Kane + Craw

Miller + Vanek + 1st (top 5 pick)

Would Bowman accept this and would you be angry as a Hawks fan if he did?

That is hilariously awful salary-wise.

No without needing more than a second to think about it.

(Bowman would say no about as quickly).

No way in hell he would do that.

Kane isn't going anywhere.

It's not horrible value per se, it just would never get done.

No, Bowman wouldn't accept that deal.

Vanek's a great player, and I'd love to have him, but Kane's the better offensive player, is younger, and is making less money. Miller would be an improvement on Crawford, likely a big one, but with how Crawford's been playing this year, there's no need to go from paying 2.66M for your starter, to 6.25M. The 1st would have to pretty much step in and contribute in the NHL, because Chicago wouldn't have a lot of cap space to sign depth after increasing their money spent against the cap by 4M+.

Bowman seems hesitant to part with prospects and picks so there's no way he trades Kane. Kane lived with Bowman so I'm assuming they have a good relationship.

Not an insulting offer, but Kane is 1 of 2 players on this team that won't get traded.

How about Johnny Oduya and Dave Bolland to the Buffalo Sabres for at least 100 pounds of wings?

Bowman would hang up on Buffalo without even needing to hear what the Hawks would get in return.

I agree that Kane is one of two Hawks that will never get traded.

And if for whatever reason Bowman got stupid and accepted it people would find him and beat him to death with a hockey stick

It's kind of funny how popular opinion changes so dramatically in less than a year.

Half way through last year, and in the off-season, there were tons of Hawk fans wanting Kane moved, and even more that were at least receptive to the idea of trading Kane - for Miller, to make room for Parise, etc. Now, the thought of moving Kane is ridiculous and he'll retire a Hawk, as long as he doesn't choose to leave.

I was always in the "Do not trade Kane" boat, but it's just another example of the "what have you done for me lately" HFboard mentality (and, really, it's a sports thing overall).

I highly doubt that Kaner will retire a Hawk. He will more than likely play for the Sabres in the back end of his career. I could easily see him leave as a free agent to go back to his home town to play for the Sabres.

I think he'll be in Chicago at least another 6-8 years. Hawks will give him the opportunity to retire a Hawk as long as he stays out of trouble and focuses on hockey, competing at a very high level along the way.

Add Olesz and Monty and Oduya and Bowman would start considering it

while the Sabres keep some money on both players

13.4 million cap hit kills the deal before the (quick) conversation would even begin.

Long-term, I think Toews is a much greater flight risk than Kane.

Assuming I understand you correctly, I agree. I can see Toews playing maybe a year in Winnipeg. Sort of a Modano-type thing.

Well, if he's the kind of player Modano was when he played with the Wings, I wouldn't be too upset with it. As long as Toews is one of the top players in the game, he better not leave and Chicago better not let him go no matter what.

Sometimes it's just out of your hands. As Parise, and to a lesser extent Suter, proved this summer.

If Parise was only a few hours from home and played in a major hockey market, I doubt he leaves. Same for Suter.

I can't see Toews doing that, but I guess you never know.
