According to a report from Buffalo Sabres insider Bill Hoppe, Sabres players Evander Kane and Justin Falk just got into a heated argument during the team's practice this morning in Buffalo.
No word yet on what sparked the disagreement, but Falk reportedly called Kane "selfish" in the process.
Kane is no stranger to controversy, having already alienated himself with his Winnipeg Jets teammates so much so that Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff was forced to trade Kane following an incident with Dustin Byfuglien.
Set to hit unrestricted free-agency this season and in the midst of a terrific individual campaign, Kane has been at the center of trade rumors for weeks now.
Sportsnet reporter and NHL insider Elliotte Friedman joined Vancouver’s Sportsnet 650 radio station last week discuss the power forward's future and connected the dots between the Sabres and the Pittsburgh Penguins on a potentially huge deal? It’s not as crazy as it sounds…
“I think they’ve had some interest in Evander Kane,” said Friedman talking about the Penguins. “I wouldn’t be surprised if they were interested in Pacioretty. They’re looking. I think if they could, they’d add a winger and a center. I wouldn’t be surprised if they could do both.”
Where Kane ends up remains to be seen, but it's clear to see why teams are interested in the mercurial forward. The 26-year-old former 4th overall pick has 16 goals and 35 points in 43 points this season for a VERY underwhelming Sabres squad. If given the chance to play with a strong supporting case, there's reason to believe that Kane could boost those impressive totals even higher.
