Blackhawks Rumors: Patrick Kane is staying in Chicago for nowVincent Pariseon July 13, 2022 at 3:22 pm

There are a lot of things happening around the National Hockey League right now. Wednesday begins the start of free agency around the league so a lot of faces will be in new places. However, the Chicago Blackhawks are rebuilding so they won’t be participating as much.

The big rumor surrounding this team right now revolves around Patrick Kane. He is someone that makes a lot of sense to trade as he can still land the team some really nice assets. A contender would be smart to consider him.

For now, however, the rumors suggest that Patrick Kane is going to stay with the Chicago Blackhawks right now. There are reports out there that say that he would like to see how the 2022-23 season goes before giving the green light on a trade.

Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff is someone that seems to have some good information on this stuff. He is one of the best NHL insiders in the world so there is definitely some truth to this report. It is just very interesting to hear about with the current state of the team.

A number of teams have inquired about Patrick Kane in recent days, but they’ve been told a trade is unlikely at this time.

Kane and #Blackhawks have been in continuous dialogue. He’d like to see how season goes, and it would be an in-season move – if at all.@DailyFaceoff

The Chicago Blackhawks don’t seem like they are trading Patrick Kane at this time.

Patrick Kane is extremely committed to this organization right now. If they are honest with him about the situation it makes sense because he became a legend with this team. However, with the current state of the organization, it is fair to wonder why Kane wants to stay.

The Hawks already traded Alex DeBrincat and Kirby Dach. They also let Dylan Strome and Dominik Kubalik walk in free agency without qualifying offers. They are becoming barer and barer up front which is going to make it hard for Kane to maximize his potential.

He might want to become Chicago’s all-time leading scorer but that might be tough with the forward group that they have right now. He isn’t getting much help from anywhere at this point in time.

Things can change quickly after the season begins. The Blackhawks are going to be very bad. That could cause a change of heart for both Kane and the team. If they can land some big-time assets in exchange for Kane, they will do it. It would be nice to see him in the playoffs again.
