This is all so weird. Even weirder it was all made public.

Wears a tracksuit to game day meeting, Bufgylienaiejgn takes exception, teaches him a lesson by throwing said track suit into shower. Kane decides he doesn't want to play and doesn't show for pre game and doesn't answer phone.

Thoughts on the weirdness?? Kane is now on IR.

My first thought is that this has probably been brewing for a while, and perhaps the Jets' current five game losing streak isn't a coincidence. If that's the case, I hope this saga continues for at least another week.

From a less selfish perspective, it sounds like this has now become a must-trade situation, and some team can probably take advantage of the Jets' desperation and get a really good deal. The thing is, Kane has developed a reputation for having an attitude problem, and this latest blow up won't help that. I'd be worried that the potential damage to team chemistry would outweigh the benefit of having him on the ice.

TSN radio just announced that Kane's undergoing surgery, out 4-6 months. So I guess that's the end of that. He'll be traded in the offseason I imagine.

Let's see if this sparks the Jets against the Blackhawks tonight.



Interesting though - Paul Maurice was asked if the decision to undergo this surgery was motivated by the locker room incident, and Maurice didn't deny it. He told them "that's a question for Evander Kane." Sounds like Maurice doesn't want anything to do with Kane anymore.

Kane sounds very childish. He's been pulling prima donna antics according to what I''ve been reading, and the team is fed up with it. Maybe Van will take him.

What if Kane isn't even injured? Can you put someone in the IR if not? Maybe mentally injured.

Well, I doubt that he'd have surgery if there wasn't a legit issue.

He's young, has some growing up to do.
Look at how Seguin was in Boston - you don't hear any stories now. Unless Dallas PR is just way better at sweeping things under the rug and they control his twitter account now.

Surgery is for a heart transplant? :P

What a douchecanoe. He can rot in Winnipeg as far as I'm concerned.

Apparently there was a track suit "occurrence" in Atlanta too, where the team cut it into a bikini for him.

From the sounds of it, he was going to need surgery at some point regardless, but the decision to have it done now rather than in the offseason may have been sparked by this whole incident. Maybe.

The Jets are up on the Blackhawks right now, so perhaps this was a good thing for them.

Someone threw a Kane shirt onto the ice after Winnipeg lost last night.

Ha

And he's a Buffalo Sabre.

http://www.tsn.ca/kane-bogosian-dealt-t ... l-1.205003

"The Jets traded Kane, Zach Bogosian, and unsigned goaltending prospect Jason Kasdorf to the Sabres on Wednesday in exchange for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, prospects Brendan Lemieux, Joel Armia and a first-round draft pick."

Ha, that's funny. Kane misses being in a big city? Enjoy Buffalo.

Holy fuck.

Glad we stayed away.

I think the Jets did well in that trade. I wonder what Vancouver was offering?
