There's something different about Evander Kane these days that even he isn't quite ready to admit or share his thoughts on the subject with the rest of the world.

There have been some tweaks in Kane's outward appearance, a repackaging, if you will, of the Winnipeg Jets leading goal scorer and public lightning rod.

The cynic will be quick to say it's all image and not substantiative change. People within the Jets organization that I've known for over a decade with opinions and judgments I trust say differently. They say Kane is a good kid. A kid, mind you, but a good one.
