Sportsnet: Elliotte Friedman on the 32 Thoughts Podcast on the Evander Kane hearing scenario and how it might not be solved by the start of complimentary company which groups will have the ability to sign Kane. There is the possibility that he might sign with a group and be required to return to the San Jose Sharks. Did he believe it would be a possibility?

“No, due to the fact that I was constantly under the impression, due to the fact that everyone informed me, that this would be figured out by July 13th.

The league informed the groups that. The gamers association had actually been informed that. The groups were definitely under that impression. So when they exposed , I believe a great deal of resembled, ‘what?’ And I understand that after journalism conference was over, a few people went to Daly to get more clearness, which’s when I asked him if this scenario might take place.

He stated it’s a possibility. Now, the something that he did state too, is that there’s very little in the method of settlement talks going on in between the Sharks and Kane today. Both sides, according to what he stated, feel extremely strong in their positions. And I never ever wish to think on how an arbitrator will rule. You simply never ever understand.

But he did expose the possibility that a group might sign him and the arbitrator might state, ‘Sorry, that contract is voided and he belongs to the Sharks.’

Now, no one has a percent. Nobody wanted to think to that, It’s simply something that everyone needs to comprehend is on the table here.”

“I don’t know a team does it. How could you sign, again, I’m asking rhetorically as noone really has an answer here. How could you sign Evander Kane, construct your roster around person that may just vanish from your team and you’re left with, sure the salary cap space because you don’t have the Evander Kane contract to carry, but the players you would want to fill that spot with by then are gone?”


“It’s a great question. It’s absolutely a great question, and what one GM said to tonight, this is a GM who I know is not pursuing Kane, I said what do you think? He said, “Let me think about it.” He texted me back in about a half an hour and he stated that just method he would consider it, if he was interested was, he would need to have an offer exercised with the Sharks.

He’d state, Evander I’ll sign you to whatever agreement however he would need to understand if the Sharks won, he’d have a sell location.”
