It seems a ridiculous question to ask, but it keeps popping up when it comes to Patrick Kane's future.

Where will he play next season? There is uncertainty regarding the length of his stay in Detroit.


Recent news that he wanted to stay in Chicago long-term has prompted media speculation about a possible reunion with the Blackhawks.

Elliotte Friedman, an NHL insider, even mentioned the possibility of Kane returning to the Blackhawks.

After the crowd's reaction to his return on February 25th, he wonders if the Blackhawks will consider bringing him back.

Kane may not sign an extension to stay in Detroit, so there is still hope, according to Friedman.

"I'm not sure if Patrick Kane will sign an extension (with Detroit) in-season...I think we believe at the end of last year Chicago had closed the book on that era of the Blackhawks. I just wonder if there's any chance now, after seeing how that night went, that that could change. I have no insight to this...but after seeing the way he played, the way the crowd reacted, I just wonder if it might be possible".--Elliotte Friedman, 32 Thoughts Podcast

What will Kyle Davidson do after his mistake? Will he bring him back? For Connor Bedard, he would make an excellent linemate.

The Detroit Red Wings forward has 18 goals and 13 assists for 31 points in 30 games this season.

Despite not being the Kane of old, he is contributing above a point-per-game average and still has valuable skills for any team.
