Sheng’s Daily: Kahun Goes to Edmonton



Joe Murphy was the No. 1 overall pick of the 1986 NHL Draft. He won the Stanley Cup with the Edmonton Oilers in 1990. He made many millions of dollars over a 15-year NHL career.

But in 1991, everything began to unravel when he suffered a concussion that he never truly recovered from.

Now, the former San Jose Sharks winger has lost it all.

TSN senior correspondent Rick Westhead talks about Finding Murph, his new book about the NHL’s concussion problem and Murphy’s descent into homelessness.

In addition, Elliotte Friedman reported that Kahun’s contract is for one-year, $975K. So there’s another top-nine forward that the San Jose Sharks have missed out on.

The Kahun news is quite disappointing. I suppose DW figures the 3C spot will be covered by Handemark or Kellman (I suppose Suomela could be in the mix, but I have a hard time believing that), and maybe Handemark could be a pleasant surprise. It feels like quite the gamble, though–it feels like the kind of gamble a manager wouldn’t take after getting burned by similar mistakes last season.

Good point–although in a way I wouldn’t mind that (well, past tense with Kahun) since there are still some second and third line winger question marks. You could plug one of these guys in there, while also having them as fallbacks for 3C if the current options fall flat or there are injuries.

I’m wondering if Kahun and other desirable free agents just don’t want to come here based on our disastrous last season and questionable outlook for this coming one.
