passing judgement, I need to see pics of the wife to see where the Hot/Crazy scale lies....
here you are

as I mentioned

about this story in the NHL free agency thread, I have no idea who is being truthful here, but in my experience divorce brings out the worst in people.

two people in blissful love one day, vicious, bitter enemies hell bent on each other's destruction the next.

I will say though, while I like Evander Kane as a hockey player and think he's got some skills, I seriously doubt he can "tank" a game.
Yeah I am not so sure I am believing the wife

when it comes to fixing hockey games.
I doubt he can tank a game as well  
JayBinQueens : 8/2/2021 11:57 am : link
but he can definitely make money on over/under bets for shots, or other prop bets like that
Seems like there's always a story following Kane

Let's remember

This is all coming out during a separation/divorce. I'm inclined to believe this isn't true, but if it is, he needs to be banned.

theres alot of objective stuff in his background that is very troubling. not to say it means its true by any stretch, but not the kind of stuff you want in your background if an accusation like this is made against you.
unless the goalie is tanking, not buying it.

however, it's only a matter of time before this becomes more common place in all major sports.

Smoke show. Must be at least a little bit crazy.
Agree that a single player - especially a skater

is tanking a game. A goalie could, but I don't see how a skater could. However, the point about prop bets is a good one. If you put money on yourself for something like over/under shots on goal or minutes played, you could certainly influence that.

If it is true he is bankrupt three years into a 7 year/$49M contract, it's not hard to imagine he may have a gambling problem. The accusation (if true) that he owes a Vegas casino $500K would seem to support that conclusion.

Who know's what's true with this story  
Mike in Long Beach : 8/2/2021 12:37 pm : link
But what is true is he filed for bankruptcy and was sued by a Casino for $500,000 dollars.

So what he's betting on and how he's gambling isn't clear, but what is clear is he has a gambling problem. So either his ex is telling a lie she knows people will believe because there's anecdotal evidence supporting it, or she's so infuriated with him that she's flat out outing him for gambling on his own games.

But... it's human nature to speculate, and I can't help but think a guy who's that deep into a gambling debt situation is pretty likely to at some point gamble on something he knows most of all if there's an opportunity to do so... his vocation.
It's no secret he has a gambling issue

or had one... but the rest, who knows. I wish people didn't act like this during a divorce - especially when there are children involved. If she had real concerns, just contact the NHL directly. The public part of this is what makes me less likely to believe her.
