Could the Canucks swing a deal for Evander Kane?

With the Winnipeg Jets and Evander Kane not always on the same page, the Vancouver Province floats the idea of Kane as a Canuck – which would address the team’s need for another scorer:
“Granted, negotiating a trade for a 22-year-old power forward of Kane’s ability would be harder than negotiating a new version of NAFTA, but players like this don’t become available every day. Kane’s from Vancouver. He has the potential to be a game-changer.”

Trade rumblings

I mentioned last week that the Vancouver Canucks had a conversation with the Washington Capitals about Martin Erat — who has asked for a trade — but the Canucks after some thought decided to pass. Ditto for the Ottawa Senators, who initially showed a bit of interest but ultimately decided Erat wasn’t a fit. …

 

Canucks are active in trade talks for a top 6 forward

Canucks eyed Erat

Vancouver did have some tepid interest in Martin Erat, who said he wants out of Washington.

But acquiring him would have to be a pickle-for-pickle type deal with David Booth going the other way.

It’s fun to consider, but unlikely.

Are the Canucks interested in Erat?

From tsn.ca

The Capitals paid a steep price for Martin Erat on last year’s deadline day and it has not worked out well with zero goals in his last 23 games and he was a healthy scratch in the Capitals’ last game. Are there any teams interested in Erat? He has asked for a trade.
