Evander Kane is holding a lot of money. But he's also quite money, himself.
On Wednesday morning, Evander Kane took a picture of himself holding what Chemmy from Pension Plan Puppets deduced to be $225,800. For some reason, this incident caused quite the outrage in both Winnipeg, and the Twittersphere.
On Thursday morning, Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press wrote an article in which he adamantly declared that Evander Kane would be not playing out the full length of his recently signed 6-year contract in Winnipeg. Rather than responding to this instantly, I took some time to stop hysterically laughing, and compose myself, before I started banging away at my keyboard.
If the Winnipeg Jets were to panic trade Evander Kane due to his perceived immaturity and shenanigans, I'm not sure if all the time in the world would be enough to get me to stop laughing, though.

Well it hasn't been the merriest of Christmas seasons this year has it? Instead of squeezing present shopping around Hockey Night in Canada or Battles of Alberta, we've had to put up with histrionic lawyers at press conferences, game cancellation announcements and endless debates about which side of the labor argument is more reprehensible.

The 2013 edition of the IIHF World Junior Championships doesn't get officially going until Boxing Day, but things kick off on the exhibition calendar this morning as Canada faces Finland. The game airs on TSN beginning at 9:30am ET (6:30am PT), live from Vantaa, Finland.
The game is the first chance to evaluate the final roster for Canada and for Finnish fans to prepare for a couple cuts that need to be made before the tournament begins.
