The Chicago Blackhawks' Divisional Rivals is Interested in Acquiring Patrick Kane

The 2023 NHL Trade Deadline is quickly approaching and so are rumours about Patrick Kane's future destination. The Minnesota Wild have reportedly been connected to the Blackhawk of 16-years, Patrick Kane, according to reports from The Athletic's Scott Powers and Mark Lazerus. This indicates that a new team has entered the action.

The Minnesota Wild are in a position where they must act soon on a crucial way, whether they want to make a splash and go on a playoff run or likely have another disapointing season/postseason if not. They have over $16.5 million in deadline cap space to work with, so they should try to be aggressive buyers, according to CapFriendly. As a result, they are not guaranteed a position in the playoff, and the fans are losing patience.

Kane has a lot of potential fits right now, so there is no guarantee the Wild will wind up signing him before the deadline. Kane would likely have other options, but as Kane has stated he wants to do what's best for Chicago, if that requires moving Kane to a below-contender team to improve them, for a higher return going to Chicago, it may be a good idea.

And we are sure Wild fans are VERY familiar with Kaner..
