Winnipeg Jets Evander Kane flashing cash in Vegas

By Brian Stubits | CBSSports.com

As the NHL lockout drags on and approaches triple digits in terms of days, some players are starting to feel the pinch.

Evander Kane, recipient of a new contract from the Winnipeg Jets just before the lockout was put into place, doesn't appear to be one of those players.

The above picture was accompanied by a tweet that read "Hey @FloydMayweather pick up your phone cause I'm callin #imdifferent."

I won't say much other than to suggest that this probably isn't the image the NHLPA wants to portray in the midst of increasingly bitter labor negotiations. I would never begrudge him the right to have some fun -- it would appear -- in Las Vegas. It's just not the greatest image right now when you have players like Jay Beagle talking about how difficult it's getting.
