Kane when asked, what does the future hold?

'I don't know what's going to happen in that regard. I think the main focus is just the health right now and to get that all figured out,' he said.

He is currently focused on his health and recovery and has not yet made any decisions regarding his future with the team or another organization. Kane believes that taking care of his body should be his primary concern at this time, and he will evaluate his options when the time comes.
