Each Friday throughout the regular season Kevin Weekes will be bringing you his Friday Four in his Weekes on the Web blog. He will be blogging about four players, teams, plays, trends or really four of whatever in the NHL that have caught his eye.
The Evander Kane dilemma, the amazing Calgary Flames, the transformation of their coach, and how the speed of one team became too much for the opponent. It's all in my Friday Four.
Here we go:
1. Kane, the Jets, and becoming a star
I've had a chance to spend time with Evander Kane. I've watched him. I've talked to veteran hockey scouts who have watched him since he was playing with the Vancouver Giants in the WHL. The common theme is this:
The sky is the limit for Kane and the type of hockey player he wants to be. He is strong. He is tough. He can one-punch you and knock you out. He's in unreal physical shape. He has great speed. He has a great release. He has a fantastic shot. He is smart. He has all of the tools and attributes to be a star in the NHL, but the thing is for him is does he want to be a star -- and if so, when?
