RANGERS MAKING INQUIRES ABOUT EVANDER KANE?

According to The Fourth Period
, the Rangers are a number of teams who have "kicked the tires" on the availability
of the Winnipeg Jets Evander Kane.
The price for Kane is believed to be two NHL-proven top-six forwards and a top prospect or a high draft pick.
Kane, 22, is in the second-year of a six-year, $31.5 million contract.
He is earning $4.5 million this season, but will make $6 million in each of the remaining four years of his deal, which does not include a no-trade or no-movement clause. His cap hit is $5.25 million per year.
Kane has just 14 points (7g, 7a)
this season after scoring 30 goals in 2011-12 and 17 goals during last year's lockout shortened season.
Kane has missed the last five games with a lower body injury.
