Now to figure out the right timing to add this guy in my $ pool :)

Had the best season of his career last season with all the debts piled up and his career in jeopardy. Maybe the more trouble he's in, the better he plays. This year he might score at a 50 goal pace!

Game 22 for the Sharks is Tuesday November 30th at New Jersey. Depending on the league he's probably worth carrying on the bench for a week... maybe two if you're way up or way down.



This is fine.

This whole thing boggles my mind... the fact that it’s the fake covid passport that gets him actually suspended is a joke (it should be suspend-able, but what I mean is that it took THAT to have him suspended with all the other crap he’s done?)

The problem is that you need evidence, not simply accusations.

Bankruptcy isn't something you can suspend someone on, nor is gambling not related to hockey. The NHL has investigated some of the other allegations against him, but the PA could never allow the league to suspend someone based on just hearsay - and rightly so. That would be a really dangerous precedent for a union to allow to stand.

I dunno - he goes and lights up the AHL and San Jose promises to give you 50% salary cover plus take back something? All of a sudden there will be someone wanting to rehabilitate him.

Who doesn't like a redemption story?

Had a fun chat with the fantasy league last night coming up with tv shows Kane could do now that he's "probably" done with the NHL.

Rising Kane
Citizen Kane
Sugar Kane
Kaneterbury Tales
The Kanet of Monte Cristo

His name really lends itself to puns. The Oilers should take him just so Gene can run wild.

The end of the relationship between Kane and the Sharks.

The Sharks have informed Evander Kane that he has been placed on unconditional waivers with intent to terminate his contract.

Apparently he travelled to Vancouver while COVID positive. A $22M trip. This guy is unbelievably stupid.

Which team rolls the dice on this guy?

He’s extremely self-destructive. That’s going to likely cause him a lot of grief. I expect that his bankruptcy depended on him continuing to make the rest of that money and pay down his creditors. This might open up even more difficulties for him.

Normally, I’m all for finding players who are imperfect and who you can get at a bargain rate, but I don’t think Kane fits in that bucket. He’s a talented player but a massive distraction. Is he vaccinated yet? His numbers in the AHL are good this year though so I won’t be surprised if someone takes a flyer on him.

Kane clears waivers, contract terminated pending grievance filed by NHLPA.

https://www.tsn.ca/san-jose-sharks-evander-kane-unconditiona l-waivers-1.1743502

As was noted earlier in the thread, "Kane will lose approximately $22.9 million if his contract is terminated."

The Oilers reclaimed Kassian off the scrapheap and the Patriots made a habit of getting undervalued players with troublesome personalities fall into line... so maybe this should be left for a good organization.

Still lots of ways to "Oilers" up acquiring him, like how we overpaid Kassian 2 times because of a couple good playoff games and chasing Tkachuk around for a couple nights.

We could get Kane for 1 year cheap, and he would be a good lad for a year Then we could be so impressed we sign him for 7x8 and he can come to training camp 50 lbs overweight and with coke all over his face.

I'm not sure I trust Holland to "get him cheap". We might be the only team to start with a multi-year deal for him.

I'm usually all for buying low, but I think he's so self-destructive, that he may be untouchable. Can you trust him not to do things that put himself, the team or the brand at risk? I don't really think you can count on that - he has incredibly bad judgement.

No one puts the Oilers brand more at risk that the Oilers, so let's not worry about that one.

Making it very clear to a player of Kane's reputation that he's on a one-strike probation would be a requirement. I think a team with a strong culture with solid on and off ice leadership can make that signing work. I don't think the Oilers can make it work unless Kane himself has decided to make it work... which I wouldn't trust here.

Of course the Oilers don't know they're a mess so, none of this would be a concern to them. They just need one more piece. Just one more.



This is fine.

Since the 1st of off the table, and the 2nd and 3rd are tied up in a past deal, I guess no one could really blame us for trying this. No other ways to try to add a potential game changing piece. Just the hand we were dealt.

Signing Kane is such a poor-sighted move that I'd almost guarantee Oilers would want to do it. More likely outcome is we leak that we're pursuing him and then he refuses to come here because he's heard bad things about the organizational culture.


You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

Maybe they can work out one of those PR stunts like Lowe did with Jagr and Hossa where they talk specifically about how we were a really really strong runner-up in their decision to sign elsewhere...

We almost had him, until we explained during our promotional "Come to the Oilers" video that the stuff on the mountains was snow, not cocaine.

I'd send him a private promotional message on tik tok and see where it goes

They of course should do their due diligence with the guy as there was a ton of things going on. He got accused of things, then she wasn't cooperating, then stories changed, then some things were dropped, then his wife/gf/whatever she is sued him and he sued her back. So there is all kinds of stuff going on so it's messy. The whole covid thing piled on. Supposedly he's vaccinated now. So there was a lot going on.

With all that, I see a big, very skilled, fast, tough, physical mean, top 6 winger....... so basically everything the the Oilers could use badly. When he was playing, he was one ofthe Sharks best players as recently as last season. He's looking for work. Needs to improve his image as he's endanger of losing his NHL career. So he should be pretty motivated and would probably be on his best behavior at least for this season. So you could bring him in on a 1 year deal for cheap who would be an immediate impact player. If he does well, you could probably resign for a reasonable contract on shorter term deals as I do not see a lot of teams wanting to go long term for big money ever again.

In my opinion, there isn't a player out there that any team could get in trade as good as him on the ice and you could get this guy for free asset wise for probably under 1 mill prorated. I would give it a shot.

If no team offers real money, you think he goes to the KHL instead? I have a feeling the people he owes money to aren't as forgiving as Capital One.

They've said that over a dozen teams have reached out to his agent. He'll be in the league, and probably won't be at league minimum.

With 15 teams allegedly interested, you have to think that someone's going to pay too much. I think it's safe to say he follows the money.

I’m surprised an enterprising team didn’t try to trade for Kane to get out in front of the crowd.

Kane: You had me at "Casino attached to Rogers Place"

They better have him on the banned list.

Interesting that he is still not signed. I start to wonder if the Oilers are only a bavk-up plan, but that the team again felt it needed to flood the market with rumours simply to prove to the fans that they're trying to do something. It sure wouldn't be surprising if that were so...

Of course Kane hasn't signed yet, he's only been a free agent for a couple of days. This is a big money decision, it's not something you jump into with all due consideration. What kind of man do you think Kane is?

see, he knows the Oilers are making an offer from a position of weakness. I'm guessing 7 years for 5 mil.

Mostly because Cap Space was traded to Chicago for Keith. Thank goodness for that trade.

Take it for what it’s worth but my friend of a friend that works with the Oilers says Kane agreement reached after call with Tippett and Gully.

Friedman saying that the NHL is investigating Kane's trip to Vancouver after his positive COVID result and that that could delay his chances of signing with any team for a bit.

Maybe he gets another suspension?

This league continues to conspire against the Oilers. Unbelievable.
