The San Jose Sharks would love to trade Evander Kane. They are willing to eat a good chunk of his salary and could even offer an additional draft pick in a potential trade.
Dan Kingerski of Pittsburgh Hockey Now reports scouts from a few NHL teams were at the San Jose Barracuda’s game to watch Kane.
Kingerski mentioned the Pittsburgh Penguins, Boston Bruins, Detroit Red Wings, Nashville Predators, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Dallas Stars scouts were checking out Kane.
Kane would help any of the teams mentioned above, he can score, has toughness, would add to any teams top six, but the problem is his attitude and get he get along with teammates. Potential trade candidates have to be careful not to affect a teams chemistry.
It has been mentioned players like Sidney Crosby might be a good mentor to Kane and could be worth the risk for a team like the Pens.
