Evander Kane was calling out a sportswriter on twitter this morning, tried to look up the article but was deleted of their site. For anybody interested, I found it on google cache for anybody interested. Pretty tame, but also a pretty pointless article.

Writer's response to Kane:


Even the website isn't backing the author:


How Evander Kane Will Help The Manitoba Moose

Quote:
How Evander Kane Will Help The Manitoba Moose

The Fairmont Hotel

It is the middle of the fall of 2014 and I’m walking out of the Fairmont Hotel in downtown Winnipeg with my ten year old nephew. The night is cool and crisp as we make our way out of the front lobby to my car. As we walk and recount the night’s events, my nephew stops dead in his tracks, his eyes locked on a figure in the corner of the parking lot. He looks like he has seen a ghost. It is no ghost, it is Evander Kane.

Naturally my nephew is excited and wants to approach Kane to ask for his autograph but I stop him…my mind is already beginning to race. I watch Kane as he paces back and forth texting and making phone calls, evidently very “busy”. I begin to recount the past few years of Kane’s “legacy” in Winnipeg, things my young nephew would never pay any attention to or know about. I would’ve liked to give Kane the benefit of the doubt but I also begin to play out the situation and my reaction if Kane snubs my nephew. “Not tonight buddy, we will get his autograph another time”, I state as I lead my nephew in the direction of my car.

By the time we reach my car and begin the drive home, my nephew has forgotten about Evander Kane. I haven’t. My nephew has moved on to talking about the latest Call Of Duty game and the guns he is close to unlocking. I nod my head and ask a few questions pertaining to Black Ops but my mind is elsewhere. Mentally, I’m still back in the parking lot of the Fairmont, holding back a young fan from going and asking a Winnipeg Jet for their autograph (I know that most of the players are great with the fans and carry themselves in a professional manner). However, this is a Winnipeg Jet who wears the famous #9 and who has slowly brought negativity and shame to the once “Golden” number.

I drop my nephew off at home and as he gets out of the car, I shoot one more apology at the kid. “It’s okay Uncle Carson”, he replies, “He looked busy”. The car door shuts, with me trying to say something but I have nothing. I sit in my car fuming over the fact that I had to shut down a ten-year-old from getting an autograph because I didn’t know how that athlete would react. I look in the rear view mirror asking myself, “What is wrong with this situation”? Part of me wants to rip back downtown to that parking lot and tell Kane face to face what I think of him. I check myself again and realize that wouldn’t do anything and he doesn’t care. In a night full of questions and what if’s, there is one thing for sure which has been hammered home by Kane’s antics since arriving- he does not care.

Subway and Cheveldae

I lay in bed staring at the ceiling thinking about my own childhood and my own experiences with the 1.0 Jets. I was fortunate enough to have a childhood friend whose father was close with the Jets which allowed us to meet many of the players. I have fond memories of Dave Manson taking us on tours of the dressing room and having a sandwich with Tim Cheveldae at Subway. I can remember Jim McKenzie standing in -40 Celsius signing autographs or Teppo Numminem handing out hockey cards outside his Waverley Street home. They cared and we knew it.

Since the trade of Kane, I have almost completely forgotten about him. Almost…I will never understand the attitude or the antics. However, I try and make a conscious effort to draw positives from any situation. The return of the Moose to Manitoba makes room for another group of young men to make up for Kane’s shortcomings. So in closing I will offer some advice to the players who may not have experienced Winnipeg or the atmosphere that comes with playing here:

This city and the fans are ready to embrace you like their own. If you come ten percent, the fans will come ninety. All that we ask is that you play your hearts out while respecting the jersey on and off the ice. Hopefully there is one among you who can make the jump to the Jets, don that #9 and restore the pride and tradition that number carried in this city.

And he has every right to do so. The writer pretty much crucified him because he imagined the whole thing.

No matter how much of a dick Kane is I put my money on giving the kid the time of the day. This isn't the NBA and Kane still likes the fans was just tired of his team.

Byslma officially signs with BUF. Just curious they are sending PIT a 2016 3rd rounder which originally belonged to VAN. Does anyone recall what trade was that?

Sabres have 4 2016 3rd round picks, their own, Stars, Canucks and Blues. They acquired the Canucks pick in the Neuvirth trade with the Islanders. The Islanders got the picks from the Canucks in the Pedan trade.

Virtanen moved up to the top line w/ Baertschi and Friesen tonight.

I guess Travis Green likes him. Good sign.

Watch?

Unless you want to shell out US$45 for AHL Live to watch the rest of the series

They have a Cybercast available on Utica's website.

94.9k-rock on the internets or whatever radio app.
Comets also has a live twitter feed dedicated to play-by-play

Hoff > Pizza man any day
That said, i don't see where he fits in the team currently because of the log jam we have on d.
Also hearing rumours Canucks are interested in Bartkowski...that seems more plausible than Ehrhoff but again, log jam in d.

wheres the info saying that hoff wants to come back? I mean if he did want to come back he would have to take less money to play here plus nucks would have to rid of juice or hammer...I for one would keep hammer and pair him up with an offensive dman ie Franson or hoff. Look how well hammer played in WCH with a guy like burns. Juice on the other hand is terrible now and isnt worht the money...

As for Bartkowski seems like another project like clenndening or however the fuck spell his lastname...

looking at all the free agents this off season my god does it suck...I think JB should try and promote with in maybe bring up some guys from the farm and give them a legitimate shot at the roster. IE a guy like Grenier guy looks like the real deal hes a big body, can score, has hands and also can fight, seems like a JB kind of guy. As for Jensen does he even fit on the team anymore? Or you guys think he might get shipped out this off season?

Bartkowski may be had for a bargain and a change of scenery might benefit him. It's more of a gamble than a project.

Clendening is still relatively young and hasn't had much NHL experience.
I think there was an interview with Ehrhoff's agent and he said that Vancouver is one of the places he would consider going to.
He may sign for another 1 year low hit contract. But because the FA pool isn't exactly deep this off-season another team may throw him stupid money.
Franson...yeah, no way in hell i'd want him since they'll be throwing all sorts of retarded contracts his way.
