Count me among the miffed. The San Jose Sharks signed Evander Kane to a contract for seven years reported at $7 million per season. On one level, Kane's talent, it is a good deal. But on other levels, it is puzzling. Kane’s Toxic Perception Kane has had issues off the ice, issues with his teams and issues on the ice. While some may consider these unimportant, they clearly matter to the league’s general managers. Given his potential to be a major difference maker in the playoffs, Kane was available for a shockingly low cost at the trade deadline. In the eyes of the league’s GMs (at least among playoff contending teams), Kane was toxic. What part of Kane was toxic may have differed from GM to GM, but only one offered the Buffalo Sabres anything for Kane. The Sharks offered a second-rounder (with potential to become a lottery-protected first if the Sharks re-signed Kane), a fourth-rounder and a marginal NHL player. This for a player selected fourth overall in the 2009...

The San Jose Sharks and forward Evander Kane have agreed to terms on a seven-year contract worth $49 million. The deal comes with a cap hit of $7 million per season and was originally reported to be completed by Irfaan Gaffar on Tuesday before being confirmed by the Sharks on Thursday. Kane joined the Sharks at the trade deadline in February. https://twitter.com/SanJoseSharks/status/999662869074460674 "At only 26 years old, Evander has established himself as one of hockey's true power forwards and an impact player," said Sharks' general manager Tom Wilson. "We think his abilities mesh perfectly with our group of skilled, young players and veteran leaders. It's extremely heartening to have Evander join a trend of elite players who have chosen to remain in San Jose. It speaks volumes as to how players view this organization and further illustrates the continued commitment to our fans by our owner Hasso Plattner." Due to a condition on this trade that hinged on Kane being...

We’re up to the San Jose Sharks coaching staff in our review of the 2017-18 season. The prior articles are here: Main Points Forwards Joe Thornton Defensemen Goalies Roster and Salary Cap Coach GM and Owner (up next) When it comes to San Jose Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer, it’s never simple. By any objective measure, DeBoer has taken this team at least as far as it should have gone in each of his three seasons as San Jose’s bench boss. In his first season, the Sharks crushed expectations and went to the Stanley Cup Final. In his second season, the Sharks made the playoffs, but were riddled with injuries and fell in the opening round. This season, DeBoer’s third, the Sharks made a second round playoff exit, playing a very competitive series against a very good team with a goaltender playing in another world. Under DeBoer, it is hard to say the Sharks could have gone any further than they did. And yet, with DeBoer, you still get the...

We’re up to the San Jose Sharks management of the roster and salary cap discussion in our review of the 2017-18 season. The prior articles are are here: Main Points Forwards Joe Thornton Defensemen Goalies Roster and Salary Cap Coach (up next) Unlike most of the other pieces in our season review, we'll do some looking back and a bunch of looking forward. On the cusp of the opening of the regular season in October, we offered three major questions about the upcoming season. One of the questions related to Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and the unusually large amount of salary cap space San Jose had. We posed the question: what will Doug Wilson do with the salary cap space? Notable Roster Changes and New Deals The departure of Patrick Marleau in free agency ($6.67 million off the cap), the loss of David Schlemko ($2.1 million) in the expansion draft and the increase in the salary cap ($2 million) left the Sharks with a bunch of usable cap space this...
