Hollande leaves much to be desired around the search for Evander Kane by the Oilers

Edmonton – Ken Holland will not be sacking Dave Tippett, but he will be taking a run on Evander Kane, who has already spoken with Kane’s agent Dan Milstein.

The former stance is pragmatic, patient. about not responding poorly for six weeks after two-plus seasons of improvement; About making something with feet.

other? Kneeling and short-sighted. Weak-willed seduction from the oiliest pages of the pro sports playbook.

It’s an interesting dichotomy, a seasoned general manager who has seen volatility caused by the coaching business. A GM who can tell you, “There have been seven coaches here in 10 years. You can’t just walk through the coaches hitting the Jeep.” Still, Holland is someone who has watched Evander Kane burn through bridges in the NHL for more than a decade, and a six-foot-two, Towed by 210 lbs. The winger who can score, fight and make your team better at the game.

On one front, Holland is conservative. On the other hand, he is willing to take a chance that has been taken by his three colleagues, and walks away with third-degree burns.

“To give someone a chance when the situation doesn’t work out anywhere else? Do I believe in it?” Holland asked clarifying the question. “the answer is yes.”

Of course, this doesn’t come close to satisfying the questions surrounding Evander Kane’s quest.

Please, don’t make the mistake of comparing Holland’s interest in Kane to the time he gave Dan Klee one last chance, and he was rewarded with a strong role player and outstanding man. Cleary’s issues were personal. Like Zac Cassian, those players lived disastrous off-ice lives due to substance or alcohol abuse, which did not allow him to be the player everyone knew he could be.

The two took their “last chance” and did well, conquering their demons and reviving their NHL careers. Praise.

In reference to Kane, Holland said Tuesday, “I believe in a second chance.”

Hey, who doesn’t? You have to be a real courageous soul to refuse a second chance to a fellow human being.

Craig McTavish needed a second chance after making a terrible mistake that landed him in a Massachusetts prison. He became a pillar in the community (and a very good hockey player) – a great example of how a “second chance” can turn out.

However, Evander Kane is not one of those people.

Ken’s indiscretion has hurt others – mostly women – and not just himself. And he has made them over and over again.

The subject of numerous court complaints regarding physical abuse of women, Kane has been found not guilty by the courts in these cases. However, he only scored a fake Vaccine card with the San Jose Sharks this season, and earned a reputation in Winnipeg as the high roller who refused to tip when compared, or simply went on the tab.

Was this a rumor of the industry? Okay, so why always Ken, and not Mark Schaeffel or Dustin Bifuglien?

Why did the Jets dressing room turn down Kane? Sabre again? Shark again?

A fake Vaccine Card 2022 reveals what kind of person he really is. Team rules are for everyone, but not for Kane.

In short, Kane is the Antonio Brown of the NHL. A terrific partner in the ultimate team game.

Holland looks at the player and reminds himself that when San Jose acquired him at the trade deadline on an expiring contract, Kane had 9-5-14 in 17 stretch-run games and another four playoff goals.

On a short leash, perhaps the Ken can remain house trained and help you win. But the moment the shark signed on for a long time, he started urinating anywhere and everywhere around the chase shark.

Which tells us he’s smart enough to know how to fit in, and talented enough to make your team better on the ice.

However, everyone in the industry realizes that selfish people have a timeline for any personal hurdles. After a period of fit as a regular, cooperative member of any team or society, that individual will reward themselves for becoming who they really are:

Selfish, selfish, selfish.

The man is 30 years old.

then go ahead. Tell yourself that it will be different in Edmonton. That player deserves it, the way Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer – a smart, perceptive and experienced head coach – signed Kane in 2018.

“You don’t get people like this until you pick the top three, four guys in the draft, and nobody wants to be there,” DeBoer said that day. “When you’re signing free agents, especially elite players and people who are going to play a big role for you, you really want to get to know as much about them as possible. And you really want to be a player. Don’t know until you’re standing behind the bench and being around them every day. So it was a nice luxury. I think we all felt comfortable that this was a guy who helped us win could do.”

Today, after their dressing room dismissed the player, the Sharks are in a legal battle to cancel Kane’s contract.

then go ahead. Line up behind the Winnipeg Jets, behind the Buffalo Sabers, behind Doug Wilson. Behind the casino that gave Ken all that dough. Behind all the restaurants who saw him walk.

Give Evander Kane a fifth or sixth chance.

Just don’t tell us you’re giving him a second chance.

Because he’s already burned through a heap of them.
