Reaction in Winnipeg to the Kane trade.

WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Gary Lawless praised Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff for shipping Evander Kane, Zach Bogosian and a prospect to Buffalo for Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, two prospects and a first-round pick. Lawless considered it a bold move to improve the Jets now and in the future.

WINNIPEG SUN: Jets fans aren’t sorry to see Evander Kane dealt away, with many citing his disappointing play and immaturity.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Time will tell who got the better of this deal, but the media consensus in Winnipeg and around the league is Cheveldayoff made a significant move which should bolster his club in the short and long term.
