Surprising update regarding Kane and Toews' trade situation

Published December 10, 2022 at 0:32

It's no longer a secret that the Chicago Blackhawks began rebuilding this summer. Every Hawks fan is eager to see Kyle Davidson's next move. Many believe he will next trade veteran and free agent players, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Both players are in the final year of their $10.5 million contracts. Surprisingly, both players may not even be traded at the trade deadline.

Scott Powers of The Athletic recently stated that the Chicago organization is not convinced that the two Blackhawks legends will waive their no-movement clauses to allow a trade. If Kane and Toews decide not to waive their clauses, the Blackhawks' rebuilding plan will change drastically. Both players are great trade assets and could bring significant returns.

Many insiders have linked Toews to teams like the Colorado Avalanche, Winnipeg Jets, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Washington Capitals. Kane has been linked to the New York Rangers, Boston Bruins, LA Kings, and Edmonton Oilers. Powers' comments are odd considering Chicago's GM is shopping both players. Perhaps Davidson is probably confident that they will be more willing to waive their no-movement clauses just before the trade deadline.

Currently, Chicago ranks 31st in the NHL with a record of 7-14-4. Many other Hawks players, such as Max Domi and Andreas Athanasiou, will be of note at the trade deadline. The return for these two players may not be huge, but it could still help Chicago.
