Evander Kane's non-existent 'decline'

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nhl-puck-daddy/evander-kane-s-non-existent--decline---what-we-learned-144015305.html

But rumblings out of Winnipeg that he's not even a top-six player are of course ludicrous, and anyone who doesn't have a vested interest in throwing some rotten garbage at the kid as he's on the way out the door (such as those who spent much of the last four years shivving him in the paper every chance he got) understands that fully. That doesn't mean they should retain him, but certainly they shouldn't have let it get to the point where he's being used as a third-liner (for dumb reasons), having his clothes thrown in the shower (for semi-legitimate ones, at least as far as his teammates are concerned), and getting season-ending surgery (maybe just so he doesn't have to play said teammates any more).

The fact of the matter is that while his point production isn't where it was, and hasn't been for a while, you actually have to do a little more work than saying, “He's not capable of playing that way any more.” Looking under the hood to see why a high-end sports car doesn't run like it used to will give you a much better idea as to the Why of it; otherwise you might be sending a Ferrari off to the junkyard because it had a problem that would have cost a trip to an auto parts store and $50 to fix.

Dreger: A lot of "buzz & noise" around the Montreal Canadiens & there has been for some time. I know (Bergevin) has had discussions w/ other clubs about a defensive swap. I look at Montreal as a team that could shake things up a bit."

a little tease...

“I’ll tell you this. I know that from talking to other teams around the league Marc Bergevin has been very busy just making sure what’s out there and what the asking price is. In other words, I don’t think he’s gone that far in terms of going after a certain player and going down that path, but he has made a lot of phone calls and done his homework in terms of knowing when the time is right what exactly it’s going to cost and what he can get.

“So I would be surprised if he didn’t make a move. I think his preference would be to make a hockey deal. In other words, a guy that has term past this year. But, as he showed last year with Vanek, if the price is right I think he could live with a rental too.

“And I’d be very surprised if he didn’t add a piece that’s worth talking about between now and March 2.”

Interesting ESPN take on Erik Cole as potential #Habs trade target. Cole having bounce-back year. Pacioretty-Desharnais-Cole worked before.

I was thinking of this, but wasn't he dealt because while the team was buying into what Therrien/Gallant/Daigneault were selling, he was in the back of the room eye rolling ?

I think that if the team was going rental, he'd help. I don't imagine that the cost would be much. With rentals though, sometimes I wonder if we assume that they'd do better than what we have when that might not be the case.

If our 8 wingers are
Pacio
Galchenuk
Gallagher
Sekac
Weise
Prust
Parenteau
Bournival/Thomas/JDLR/Next man up

Then I'd say Cole slots in ok.

i wish they would try Sekac on that line before venturing towards Cole, if they are thinking that the Weise effect is not sustainable

Worth a try in the same way they're looking at, or showing Thomas and co. As the year's gone on, Sekac seems more confident holding the puck and working in the zone, but he doesn't seem to work with line mates really well. Similar to Eller.

Ideally it would be pap for Cole and we could go full circle on that series of transactions.

I think Eller and Sekac work well together in every zone, puck support is one of their strengths. The issue to me is Sekac's energy level, it's his first season in the NHL after all...

They cycle well together and play assignment hockey and shit but they don't find each other with the puck, I find, but to be fair,it's neither guy's forte. Moreso Eller as Sekac is new to the league.

Yeah it's definitely not Eller's forte, but I believe they're required to cycle as much as they can without losing the puck depending on the situation -- That usually involves not taking as many risks or attempted plays that would create quick turnovers for the opponent. But yeah, compared to a guy like Weise who shows awareness and incisiveness in his decision making with the puck in the offensive end, Eller looks like a moron.

On the other hand, Sekac has actually shown good playmaking skills and a knack for it, I think his best games are when you see him carrying his line on the rush and delaying plays to give his linemates time to get into position for a shot. But I think he lacks the confidence and energy to be that player every night. Will he develop into that kind of player that has the ability to do that every night? Remains to be seen.
