from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press,
The Winnipeg Jets and Evander Kane’s representatives are working on a long-term contract that could see the player signed for up to six years.
Negotiations are moving at a methodical pace with both sides motivated to strike a lengthy pact and get it completed well before training came according to multiple sources involved in the deal.
Contracts signed by New York Islanders sniper John Tavares and Toronto Maple Leafs forward Phil Kessel are being used as examples. Both players signed long-term packages coming out of their entry level contracts, Tavares a six-year deal worth $33 million and Kessel a five-year pact worth $27 million.
