Is this Evander Kane's last day as a Winnipeg Jet?

Kane appears to be close to disproving the Westside Story mantra, according to multiple reports. "When you're a Jet, your a Jet all the way" - at least until your teammates throw your clothes into the shower.

TSN's Darren Dreger has characterized trade talks between the Buffalo Sabres and the Jets as heating up. The two sides seem to be working hard to consummate a multi-player swap per Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press. Dreger also suggests that Tyler Myers, Zach Bogosian and Drew Stafford could be involved as part of the deal, along with Kane.

The Winnipeg Jets knew a lot was on the line today and played that way. They came off strong in the first period, dominating in possession, chances, and shots, but Dubnyk kept Minnesota in it.
