If you think he would come here and put up 80-90 points a year, you are sadly mistaken. If this was 2004, you would be saying no way Richards can be traded! A clutch playoff warrior and Conn Smythe winner, 90 point scorer ( by the way, more than Kane ever scored) and on a cup-winning team. They would never trade him for the best goalie in the game in his prime! Kane is not even a top 10 player in the league. Toews, and Hossa are better than he is. Think Kane scores as much on the Flames? How about the Blue Jackets?

Top 15 players I would take before Kane.
1.Crosby
2.Malkin
3.Stamkos
4.Karlsson
4.Datsyuk
5.Ovechkin
6.Lundqvist
7.Weber
8.Toews
9.Kovalchuk
10.Chara
11.Doughty
12.Tavares
13.Subban
14 H.Sedin
15.Suter

So have at it, i just named 15 players who I would take over Patty Kane (notice how Lundqvist is on the list), now go and dig up some fancy Corsi stats that say Kane is more valuable than Hossa, Toews, and Sharp combined.

If he was a natural center, who is good for 90+ points a year, and was over a head taller than Zuccarello, then he would make my list.

Saying Lundqvist wouldn't return Kane is either being so far up Chicago's ass or just a delusional neutral "fan" who likes to post on HFNYR. Cut it with the anti-Rangers agenda already, you were being pessimistic the whole playoffs last year, and as far as i'm concerned, you have a plate of crow to eat.
So which previously banned poster are you?

I'm not sure why Kane needs to be a head taller. He was on pace for 90+ pts this year too. I forgot we are supposed to be enamored with grit and size. Kane is a better player than Hossa and Toews, ask Hawks fans who their MVP is this year. . I feel you haven't watched Kane at all this year, he's improved his overall game leaps and bound to what it was before. He is a good defensive player. Let's not forget he's only 24 years old. Kane is a winger yes, but the way he controls the middle of the ice is similar to that of an elite center. Kovalchuk is the same way. This is why Kane was tried at center last year, but his inefficient defensive play at that time caused him to struggle. Hossa is not even in the same stratosphere as Kane this season, peak wise, yes.
