Evander Kane: “I know I can score 50″

Evander Kane thinks pretty highly of himself. That’s not exactly a shocking headline, but his latest comments in regards to his goal production might be.

This is a unique situation to be in with a player; basically only the San Jose Sharks...

Trouba Needs to be in Running for Calder

If there is one thing I know that will monumentally disappoint me this season with the Winnipeg Jets – other than the fact that we are stuck in .500 purgatory – is that Jacob Trouba will somehow be overlooked in the race for the Calder Trophy. Through 16 games this season, the Jets rookie defenseman has made good decisions and some bad ones, but has always made the Jets a better...
