NHL Free Agent’s Evander Kane and John Carlson are at the center of our discussion. Was Kane’s deal worth it and where is Carlson going in July?
It isn’t the NHL free agent period yet, but we’re already seeing movement amongst some of them. Evander Kane has signed a seven-year $49 million deal with the San Jose Sharks. Is it worth it?
After scoring 54 points between the Buffalo Sabres and the San Jose Sharks Kane had his second most productive season. Add five points in nine playoff games, and it seems like the Sharks got a good deal.
But then you remember that two years ago Kane put up 35 points in 65 games played. Sure some years he can be productive, but some years he doesn’t. Hopefully, the Sharks don’t get any of those years out of Kane.
Carlson to Toronto
The two other guys on the show think that John Carlson stays with the Washington Capitals. I think he leaves. And the Toronto Maple Leafs is the top destination, in my mind.
They have a ton of cap space and all we’ve heard is that the Maple Leafs are a number one defender away from being true contenders. John Carlson is that guy.
