What Will The Buffalo Sabres Do With Evander Kane?

from Brayton J. Wilson of WGR 550,

"I still think there's a little bit of a wait and see attitude [in Buffalo]," ESPN's Craig Custance said with Howard Simon and Jeremy White on Friday morning. "I'm not sure if anyone is sure of what direction the Sabres are going to go. They're in the same position as a lot of teams are, especially in the [Eastern Conference]. You wanna give your team as much of a chance heading into the deadline to actually make a little bit of a run and make things interesting."

Perhaps the most intriguing name the Sabres have on the trading block is forward Evander Kane.

Kane, 25, has set himself up to put up some productive numbers by the season's end. In 43 games this season, Kane already has 16 goals and is on pace to finish the season with 26 goals.

While the Sabres acquired Kane from the Winnipeg Jets two years ago, his name has been on the trade market for quite some time now.

"His name has been out there for quite some time," TSN's Darren Dreger said with Andrew Peters and Martin Biron on The Instigators on Friday. "It depends on when you get to [Sabres general manager] Tim Murray as to whether or not he's legitimately in play. I think that applies right now."

Kane has one year remaining on his contract after this season, and carries an average annual value of $5.25 million.
