TSN Insider Darren Dreger talked about the Buffalo Sabres and Evander Kane on “Insider Trading.”
Dreger said there’s developing interest in Evander Kane. He added that there is a willingness by Jason Botterill to loosen things up in terms of what he wants in return.
If it’s not a 1st round pick, it will be a 2nd and a higher prospect.
Why is that? Here are some thoughts:
- Nash and Grabner among others are available at a cheaper cap hit. There are more sellers than buyers.
- Teams are not willing anymore to give up a 1st for a rental, even if it means improving the team for the short term. I could be wrong when I said the Sabres would definitely get a 1st for Kane.
- Things happen very quick. There’s plenty of time until the deadline Monday. Teams get desperate to make moves.
