Teams have called about Kane
TheFourthPeriod.com

Though they've won two in a row, the Winnipeg Jets are going to need to keep the momentum burning if they hope to make the playoffs this season.

The Jets haven't gotten off to the hot start they had hoped for, and speculation is well underway over possible changes to the roster.

With whispers of head coach Claude Noel being on the hot seat, there has been banter over possible roster moves coming from GM Kevin Cheveldayoff's office.

While nothing is imminent, the Jets are looking for ways to improve their roster.

The Jets currently rank 30th in the entire NHL in powerplay percentage (8.8%), which is an area of concern for the club and its coaching staff.

As Cheveldayoff scours the market, some teams have inquired about the availability of sniper Evander Kane, who is in the second-year of a six-year, $31.5 million contract.

Kane, 22, is earning $4.5 million this season, but will make $6 million in each of the remaining four years of his contract, which does not include a no-trade or no-movement clause.

It would take the Jets a significant offer to part with Kane, who reportedly hasn't seen eye-to-eye with Noel for some time, but the team is believed to be willing to listen, in the event a package comes across their table that is too good to pass up.

In the meantime, Cheveldayoff will keep his focus on improving the club in other areas.
