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.”
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.

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.
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.
