Latendresse also had a gazillion hits in his career, and he's still no more a PF than Pacioretty is. Kane fits more the mold of a traditional one but it's not a night and day difference as you make it seem. At even strength they are equal, while Pacioretty is deadly on the powerplay. You sound like Sens fans when bringing up the Norris trophy. The age argument, again, marginal at best. He's two years younger not three by the way, what a huge deal. Same for goal scoring.

So in conclusion, Kane is slightly better than Patches. That's great. It's still a redundant trade (but it probably won't as we'd have to give up an other asset making us losers) unless you think Pacioretty will be forever injury prone.

What I'd like is for us to get Kane AND keep Patches. But you know what, this rumor is bogus as hell, Kane's not even available I bet.
