The insider Frank Seravalli believes that Evander Kane's days with the Edmonton Oilers organization are counted.

Many recent disturbing developments involving Kane that highlighted his reputation of being a troublemaker in a team emerged, suggesting the end of his journey in Edmonton.

Evander Kane's tenure with the Oilers might be In jeopardy, according to Frank Seravalli



Seravalli discussed Kane's situation in Edmonton in a recent podcast episode.


He mentioned that Kane failed his role to bring a physical presence on Saturday night, in a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. McDavid and Draisaitl were both pushed around by the Leafs and didn't answer. On the bench, Draisaitl and Kane got into it, which led to Kane being scratched for Sunday's game against the Senators.

"What I didn't like on Saturday night... [Connor] McDavid and Draisaitl got pushed around. If I was [in] the Oilers organization I would not have liked how McDavid and Draisaitl were treated in Toronto. There's nothing wrong with what the Maple Leafs did to them - they should try and rough them up - but it's on yourselves to protect them."

Seravalli continued by adressing Kane's controversial reputation:

"His act is wearing thin. It's a tale as old as time. He starts off really well in any new place that he goes to and it's like a coach the clock begins to tick. At some point the Oilers were probably have to address it before his contract is up. It may or may not be as soon as this summer, but he wears out his welcome."


Considering all this, do you think Kane's journey in Edmonton will end soon?
