Evander who?

It is a good attitude to be irritated that your team hasn’t made the playoffs…but to go about it on Twitter in a 12 year old manner…shows your lack of maturity and possibly a reason why your team hasn’t made said playoffs.

I see absolutely nothing wrong with what he said.  He’s a kid.  It’s good that he’s pissed about missing the playoffs.

This is the Kane I don’t mind having in a Wings sweater.  But that cap hit is scary.

exactly Fluff, I agree with you.  There was something very childish sounding to that little ditty.  Like his money-brick phone pic during the lockout.

How did I miss that one? What a putz that kid is.

He has a great attitude (if not a little childish sounding, as Fluffy pointed out), and this is an example of the sort of attitude more players need to have. Always push yourself and your teammates to play harder and do better. He was one player I was happy to watch playing in Atlanta.

However…

The Curse of the Thrashers continues . . .

...and with such little depth as the now-Winnipeg team has, I don’t think Kane’s wishes will come true. The years of mismanagement in Atlanta moved with the team to Winnipeg.

With the stacks that Commodore is rolling in, he could buy a damaged and heavily used 1992 Honda Civic with 300k miles on it.

So Evander Kane just basically said he’s not playing in Winnipeg next year.  Because he guaranteed he’d be playing in the playoffs.

No guys, no.  You don’t want this guy in a Wings’ sweater.  No.  He’s very immature, he acts very entitled, and he’s not a “big body”... hockeydb lists him at all of 6’2, 195lbs.

yeah, was.


That was one of the highlights of the lockout for me SYF.  I remember loving the kid after he KO’d Cooke.. and then.. that pic.  I realized this kid still had a lot of developing to do.

Am I crazy or ESPN’s “The Season” showed him being told he was traded?

It’s time to start winning and it’s starting now.

do they have any leaders on their team who can explain to him why his actions aren’t those of a winner, but are those of a whiner?

What, should be be cheering for the Bruins?

He’s 21 f*cking years old, why is he being held to the same standard as a 30-year old veteran?

Let him be a kid, for chrissakes.

If the worst thing he does is pretend a brick of money is a phone or show that he wishes he was in the playoffs then I say good on him.  Lord knows not all young players can be model citizens like the Wings’ #5 ranked, superdrunk, wrong-way-on-a-one-way-street-driving Teletubby whose behaviour Detroit rewarded by calling him up to wear the Winged Wheel this season, right?

Oh jeez, Evander Kane damaging the hockey world by showing emotion and personality again.  I expect another hand-wringing article from the Winnipeg media within the next few days.

do you have a dedicated person who pisses in your Cheerios every morning, Garth, or are you just angry at the world for some inexplicable reason and let it out by being an angry douche every day?

He’s 21 f*cking years old, why is he being held to the same standard as a 30-year old veteran?

he’s not, which is why I said is there someone who can EXPLAIN things to him, help him LEARN.  if he were held to the same standard then I would say “he should already know.”

Let him be a kid, for chrissakes.

he’s 21.  he’s a professional hockey player.  the time for being a kid is over.  and someone needs to explain that to him.

Not in Winnipeg, that’s for sure. The only player there that might is Chris Thorburn.

That’s almost certainly premeditated and part of a trade request package.
