The possibility of Patrick Kane joining the Rangers is becoming more likely, as rumours of a potential trade continue circulating.
The team has faced similar rumours before. With the recent news that Vitali Kravtsov and Jake Leschyshyn were unavailable for a game due to “roster management reasons,” speculation has increased.
However, acquiring Kane would require significant roster management and financial manoeuvring, including the Blackhawks retaining 50% of his cap hit and a third team acting as a banker.
The Rangers may need to waive another player and carry just 20 players for at least 12 days to make the trade work.
Alternatively, they could wait until the trade deadline in March, but this would also come with its risks.
In addition to financial hurdles, the Rangers would also need to offer significant assets to the Blackhawks in exchange for Kane.
Despite these challenges, the possibility of Kane joining the Rangers seems to be gaining momentum.»Possibility of Patrick Kane joining Rangersbecomes more likely«
