Are the Chicago Blackhawks exploring the idea of buying and selling Kane on the NHL exchange closing date? alternate rumors are beginning to circulate that this may be the case.
Friedman turned into on Sportsnet’s Jeff Marek Radio Show and reports, one of the situations that I suppose is going to be very interesting to watch is going to be Patrick Kane in Chicago. Teams are starting to name the Blackhawks approximately the availability of Kane.
Friedman went on to say, teams have been asking about him. I think teams have asked the Blackhawks, ‘What are you doing with Kane? Is there any risk he may be to be had?’
If Kane feels the Blackhawks will be going into a full rebuild mode, he will likely ask for a trade and waive his full no-movement clause to a playoff team.
Kane has a hefty $10.5 million cap hit that expires at the cease of next season. It is probable he's traded inside the offseason as a substitute then on the trade deadline as teams will recognise extra about their cap situation inside the summer season.
