Discussion in 'Winnipeg Jets' started by YWGinYYZ, Jul 6, 2017.
Are 5% hockey fans?
This is one of the most nauseating hockey related article I have read NHL: Sharks, San Jose might be perfect fit for Evander Kane
I don't care about Kane anymore and don't care where he plays but the tone that writer struck with this article is just yikes... I get that he is a beat writer trying to do a puff piece on a player and suck up to the Sharks management but he didn't have to go there and it grosses me out.
Next the guy will tell us Kane would have been great in Atlanta because of its demographics and hip hop culture. Except Georgia’s a right wing state so maybe not. My opinion of an article like this is, is it will hurt your journalistic career more then it’ll help.
The writer is from Winnipeg originally
Yeah the article was a bit over the top
I did think this video linked from it was pretty cool - do teams often do "mic'd up" from actual games? It's interesting to hear the dialogue from a real game.
Agreed. The article is trash, and the inferences it tries to make are disgusting.
The broad accusation that Kane was run out of Winnipeg due to racism is offensive and wrong. His attitude stunk. Period.
Kane was finally run out of town and off the Jets by Buff, a well known racist, of course. Buff did what all his teammates wanted to do.
Beating the odds: Indigenous Whitecloud takes winding road to Vegas
I wonder if the Jets tried to sign this guy. We could use another RD. Could be a great local role model for Jets/Moose.
I disliked Kane from the get go. Not as a player so much (although I did think he was quite overrated) but due to all the other stuff.
When I was still living in Winnipeg, me and a few of my co-workers had the unfortunate displeasure of seeing his entitled BS first hand. I won't comment about it here but if anyone wants to know the details they can PM me.
OMG Carolina. Up on Boston 4-1 early in the 3rd period. About to lose 5-4.
EDIT-Make that 6-4 LOL
Dallas lost to Montreal. Colorado beating Minny 3-1 in the 3rd.
Out of town scoreboard doing us some favours tonight at least.
Dallas is playing putrid hockey and have a tough schedule down the stretch. They are likely done.
I'd like to see Nill gone in the off season but that won't happen. His job should be on the line if he has a poor summer though.
Man it sucks that Dallas is ****ting the bed right now. Would have liked to face them in the 1st round. Would have been good series from an entertainment perspective. Sucks that now we most likely face Bore-isotta Wild.
When you are in the playoffs nothing is boring. I like playing Minny. A lot of Jets fans will try to scoop up tickets in their barn and it should add to the cross border rivalry.
I prefer the matchup with Dallas as we had easier wins against them There is only 3 points between Stars and Wild and they are still going to play twice with each other so it’s too soon to who might finish third on the division
I concede 1st to Nashville The Jets should rest players once we have a lock on 2nd place
You can still get 15$ tickets to most of the games ... so they aren't that popular haha. Rangers games are expensive tho, comparable to the Jets.
Well, one plays in Madison Square Garden in NYC, and the other plays at Prudential Centre in Newark. There's a bit of a difference there.
Kane with no brain ran out his welcome quick in Winnipeg despite being arguably the most popular Jet with the return of 2.0, he wore out his welcome in Buffalo and managed to slag that city on the way out and it's won't be long before San Jose becomes his target with something like too many smart people here!
Kane with no brain, the smug, self entitled, narcissistic *****e!
Lehtonen having a complete breakdown
The money phone had to do with race? Sure Kane keep chirping.
What was lost in the article is that money phone pic was posted right in the middle of a lockout where many people who don't make 6 figure salaries were out of work and Kane got flack from all corners not just Winnipeg. Also suggesting race is not as much of an issue in an American city is laughable to say the least. Sadly racism is everywhere but nowhere is it more of a hot button topic than in the United States.
How do they not mention Kane's teammate drama? Forget the fans and the media, that's the biggest reason he failed in Winnipeg. He turned the locker room against himself by being an arrogant prick.

Kane is simply immature.
End of story
Romanuk really revs it up when he does Leafs games
