Evander Kane and the Buffalo Sabres haven't engaged in contract talks.
Kane is willing to negotiate, but its the Sabres that haven't approached him. "Of course I would have. Absolutely," Kane said of the possibility of discussing a contract extension. "I've said from Day One I've really enjoyed the time here. For me, it's a place where I've grown to know more and more about Buffalo. It's been a real great experience for me. I'm just going to continue that until I get told something different." It seems that the Sabres are more focused on trading him before he can become an unrestricted free agent this summer though. That makes some sense given the Sabres' position, though it should be noted that Kane is still just 26-years-old so it's entirely possible that he could still be part of the long-term solution in Buffalo if the Sabres believed he was suited for that role.

Buffalo GM Jason Botterill isn't sure how to handle the Evander Kane situation right now.

The Sabres need goals and Kane leads the club with 12 so far, but they have other needs as well and could lose the winger to unrestricted free agency in the summer. "We've been very happy from Day One with how Evander's come into training camp focused on our team and focusing on helping our team try to improve," said Botterill. "Statistically, he's done a great job." Kane could be a great trade chip for the Sabres at the deadline.

Evander Kane found the back of the net in Buffalo's 5-4 overtime win on Saturday.

Kane is up to six goals and 11 points in nine games this season. He's frustrated fantasy owners in the past by not living up to his potential, but the 2017-18 campaign might be a different beast. It probably doesn't hurt that this is his contract season and on top of that he's been getting playing time with Jack Eichel.
