Evander Kane could be on the trading block according to an NHL analyst

For the Edmonton Oilers this season is very simple. It's Stanley Cup or bust. Connor McDavid is entering the 9th year of his NHL career and has yet to see the Stanley Cup finals. This year that needs to change.

To do that, the Oilers will need to take on a ruthless mentality, the same mentality that led the Vegas Golden Knights to a cup victory. One NHL analyst believes that if the Oilers get off to a slow start or struggle at all this season, the Oilers could look to trade polarizing forward of Evander Kane.

Allan Mitchell of The Athletic lists F Evander Kane as a potential trade piece for the Edmonton Oilers if he and the team struggle out of the gate this upcoming season.

A deal involving Kane could be difficult with so many teams shying away from him in the past due to his off ice drama. But Kane does do the most difficult thing in the NHL which is scoring goals, so he will definitely have a market.

With the Western Conference wide open the Oilers have to be considered heavy favorites.
