<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>OutCold13</b></div><div>Kane has played possibly his best hockey this season. He is exactly the kind of player teams need in the playoffs.

I would say many of his problems in the past stem from immaturity the recent gambling issue may cause teams to pause. His NTC probably further muddies the water. The final problem with any Kane trade is salary and term in a flat cap era.

If Wilson were to trade Kane he would first need to talk to him and explain the Sharks aren't close and looking at a few down years, follow that up with can you give me a list of teams you would consider being traded to. Once Doug has the list he has to look at who is actually a cup team. From there Doug would need to decide what Sharks are willing to eat in Salary, do the Sharks retain considerable money or how big and how much term do they bring back to make the cap work.
Considering the salary cap gymnastics Doug should definitely get at minimum a lottery protected 1st, a A prospect and possibly a declining veteran who is still serviceable but is more valued for being a pros pro with no more than 2 years of term and making around 4 million.

I think Doug should possibly get even more.</div></div>

All this I agree with. And as you said: in this hypothetical world we have to be objective and as you and I point out lmao; there’s gonna be a lot of talking. Meet with Kane, meet with the List of teams, meet with Kane again and get some conversations to ensure smooth transitions. Lol it’s a lot and maybe a little bit of a headache in a player trade but as you said if a team and Kane are on the same page; the Sharks could see a sizeable haul if things work out.

If anything else, it’s good to see Kane thriving as he’s learned to control his game and be lethal.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ajp_18</b></div><div>I wouldn’t say Patrick Kane is underrated, everyone knows what he is and what he does.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Evander Kane has been really good in San Jose this year and if it weren’t for the previous stuff, he’d probably be much better respected.</div></div>

Yeah, I hope he at least gets some better looks if we’re better in the future. As he definitely would be a big part in our future success (if there is any LOL)

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RawZuccSauce420</b></div><div>He’s been absolutely fantastic this year. When he stays out of the box and stays level-headed he’s the most dominant and consistent player on the ice. I don’t think the fact that he’s having a career year and the fact he’s cut WAY down on the penalties this season is a coincidence.

Either way quite a decent portion of the users on this site haven’t actually watched him and think he’s worth a 2nd rounder at best. His personal issues factor in a bit for sure but you’re right about about him he’s worth much more than people give him credit for (at least at this point in time)</div></div>

The penalty thing is huge. He was playing well at the start of the year but still was taking a ton of penalties and then all of the sudden what he went like 20+ games with like only 1 or two penalties (something along those lines) and at the same times he’s been driving the offence ever since. He’s really learned to play with edge but control his emotions and he’s lethal. Just happy to see he’s finding personal success as he clearly enjoys putting up points and not being frustrated by being in the box looool.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>deys3232</b></div><div>Unrelated, but why do the Sharks not use Pateryn? He played really well in the game that I watched him play.. not sure why they took him out for Jaros who is not nearly as good IMO</div></div>
I believe it’s testing out young guys with more cushion. Jaros likely is fighting for a job next year and guys like Pasnichuk need a rep in. I believe Merkley could see 1 game but that’s very unlikely. I think Pateryn may stick around but it’d likely be depth/ AHL if he wants to stay in SJ (I think someone said his wife is from SJS and he liked the fit in coming over). Plus it’s realistically better if we lose games for a better pick so I think management could care less if playing a young guy results in a few screw ups as it’s just better to let them learn

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>flamesfan</b></div><div>Why should Patrick Kane have his value reduced. Kane was run out of both Buffalo and Winnipeg and the fans hated him and there a rumours his teammates hated him aswell. There’s never been rumours that Patrick Kane’s teammates hate him. Kane still has controversy like how he forced a girl to get an abortion and said he pay her and never did or how there’s many places that claim he’s hasn’t payed his tabs.</div></div>


Patrick Kane has history of attacking a cab driver (while drunk) (whether the full extent will ever be known, or blown out of proportion).

The point being Patrick Kane shouldn’t be blasted for years for something he did while younger/ that likely has been resolved.

The same for Kane as these allegations are NOT CONFIRMED. As he is counter sueing. We are not involved in that situation nor is there any actual evidence that is public/ not hearsay. We
should not comment on that issue as not only is it a touchy subject, and a serious one. But we do not even have the full information (as you said it’s a rumour/ controversy).

The point being if you’ve been on a sports team before - sometimes there’s disdain with teammates (which is clearly what happened in WPG). Buffalo seemed to be the losing/ internal issues. This meaning not only is it the past but it happens all the time in sports and likely all the time currently but not always made public. I’ve been on teams where the team dislikes 1 single person and that person has the same right to be upset (as that clearly is not fun) as the people who may not like them (for whatever reason).

Matthew to under went similar off ice issues yet it’s not discussed or brought up as it was resolved. Should matthews be blasted for years? No. Is he in the wrong and hopefully learned a lesson and probably escaped punishment due to being famous? Yes. Is Matthews past brought up when he’s talked about; no not at all lol.
