10:16 AM ET 08.25 | Evander Kane still doesn't have a new contract with the Winnipeg Jets, but contrary to some internet speculation, the dynamic left-winger hasn't asked to be traded either. As the rumor-mill swirled late Thursday night and Friday morning, the agent for Kane confirmed that there was nothing to the unsubstantiated reports. "No truth to it," Craig Oster of Newport Sports said in a text message on Friday afternoon. A Jets spokesman also dismissed the report, noting the team doesn't comment on rumors.

Why would you want to trade Evander Kane? It doesn't make any sense. But, if you must, we'll send Jordin Tootoo your way, straight up. We don't even want any 1st rounder coming our way. :-)

Are you going to the open house and airshow Roamer?

Is that at Willow Run? They used to fly over my house when I lived out that way.

If you can't comment on internet speculation what can you.

That'll be next year as Willow Run is every two years. There's one at Gratiot I think but, I'm staying indoors where it's nice and cool.

He'll get close to what Skinner and Hall got. Which is too much for any player signing their second contract. BTW have they annouced who the next Wing Captain is.

The fat women in Calgary?

They better sign him quick even if its an over payment. They need to stop the initial exodus and give the team hope for the future.

Oakland County International I think. I saw it on News 4 last night.

The kid is way to important to the Jets to leave him dangling. They need to sign him, probably before the CBA turns into a pumpkin.

This move may backfire on Winnipeg's somewhat new management team. This young group does look good for the future though.
