I don’t think I can make head or tail of the report that Evander Kane is apparently on the market. I blame Reneau Lavoie of RDS, I think, for posting a vague message on his Twitter account that suggested Kane might want out of Winnipeg:
What’s going on with the Jets ? I hear from a player on Winnipeg that Kane doesn’t want to negotiate a new deal ?

Not based in Quebec, I can’t say I know too much of the overall outlet from a critical perspective, but anecdotally, I’d suggest that they’re a lot more “miss” than “hit” when it comes to rumours of this magnitude. It may have something to do with a language barrier and a few reports making their way to the desk are lost in translation and not a lack of journalistic due diligence.
