Evander Kane traded.....

Postby KnightHawk » Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:47 pm

I was going to put "Kane traded" in the subject line. But, I figured there would be a lot of backlash, saying I should specify WHICH Kane was traded. It could have been Patrick Kane.

Evander Kane has been traded to the Buffalo Sabres in a blockbuster deal.

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/winn ... a-lemieux/

Buffalo Sabres acquires: •Evander Kane •Zach Bogosian •Jason Kasdorf
Winnipeg Jets acquires: •Tyler Myers •Drew Stafford •Joel Armia •Brendan Lemieux •1st-round pick

IMHO, Winnipeg won this trade. They get a high-end defenceman in Tyler Myers, and a blue chip prospect in current Barrie Colt Brendan Lemieux.

The 1st round pick is intriguing. It doesn't say what year it is for or if it's their own or another team's 1st round pick. As it stands, Buffalo has three 1st round picks in the 2015 draft. They have their own, St. Louis' and NY Islanders'. The one from St. Louis was acquired in the Ryan Miller trade, and the one from NY Islanders was acquired in the Thomas Vanek trade.

With Buffalo near the bottom of the standings, they will be vying for the 1st overall pick.

Stay tuned.....

Yes....but don't forget....finishing last overall does not guarantee they will get the first overall pick.

That was the case with Edmonton back in 2012. Columbus finished with the fewest points. However, with the way the lottery was weighted, Edmonton leap-frogged over Columbus, and got the 1st overall pick.

AND....

Starting this year, the odds of getting the 1st overall pick get a little bit better for those teams who finish 5th through 14th in least points. Please look at the following link for the breakdown:
