Kane is a proven top ten forward, he has much more value than any prospect. Also, Kane is 25 right now, not 30. Most teams with the cap space wouldn't hesitate to give him 8 million+ a year, Buffalo included.

Lol. Thank you.

But I guess nobody else sees the possibility of Kane testing the free agent market in 2015.

I just feel that he will want more than the probable ~$8.5M that Chicago will offer to both him and Toews.

I believe that Patty Kane in a bidding war could get upwards of $11M a year on a 7 year deal.

I said Kane is a star, I don't think I need to explain any further on how much I think Kanes value is...


that said, again, McDavid, Eichel are viewed as generational prospects, like Crosby and Malkin. AND buffalo may want to build young, and not have a upper 20's y/o winger.

Makes no sense to trade anything for Buffalo if we are talking the price of McDavid, Eichel.

Buffalo would benefit a million times more with McDavid, Eichel rather than Kane if we are projecting the next 15 years. (more than likely)

Kane's turning 25 I believe and will likely demand 8mil, but I agree its not worth trading 2 amazing prospects for him.

that may be but why would Buffalo do it.

seriously think before you post guys.

Buffalo is building for the future, how does adding Kane and trading youth help them win anytime soon?

I was wrong about Kane's age, I thought he was 2 years older, as in turning 28 this year, not 26. born 88

Buffalo will not mortgage their future to trade for Kane. they will just wait until July 2015 for him to become a UFa and get him for free.

They will not be trading this years 1st nor would they trade their highest pick in 2015 (likely top 5).

If ever there was a team that shouldn't break up their core until they absolutely have to, it's the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kane may sign with buffalo when he's 35. Right now people really think he's going to leave a team that can compete for cups to join a rebuilding team? Some of you guys sound like leaf fans who think every Ontario born player is just biding their time until they get a chance to sign in Toronto.

Kane won't be available unless Kane wants to leave. The Hawks are going to find themselves in a cap bind after they sign Toews and Kane. You might not get Kane but Leddy Oduya Bickell and Versteeg might be on the trade block. One of those might have to be traded this summer in order to get under next year's cap.

How will you do that when the Hawks extend him?

Oduya and Steeger will be expired by then.

people on this site overvalue prospects so much. Who's to say McDavid pans out to be the next Crosby? Sure its possible, but Kane is a proven superstar, a winner, proven in the playoffs, and he's only 25, hasn't even hit his prime yet.

Anyone that honestly thinks that Kane who is just entering the prime of his career is going to leave the perennial cup contender that he plays for to play on the worst team in the league is delusional. Same thing with anyone who says the same thing about Toews.

Bowman is one of the best GM's in the game and he's a salary cap wizard. He's going to find a way to keep both of them in Chicago for a long, long time.

prospects are usually over hyped yes, but next years draft is to be much like 2004 with Ovechkin / Malkin.

and prime is just as much over used as any other word. If a superstar dominates the league at a young age, that is possibly his prime years. Older you get, more injuries, possibly your game doesn't go to another level. Who knows. Look at Crosby for a "prime" example.

personally Bowman inherited a great job. Yes he has done well but its really hard to evaluate how elite he is. Its not like he built the current hawks team from the ground up.

as for being a cap wizard, he failed to bring his magic while negotiating a deal with Crawford. brutal!

You don't need to be a salary cap wizard. Kane knows that his next contract offer from the Blackhawks should be no less than $9Mx8y ($72M total), and then it comes down to his willingness to stay on the team that drafted him and take a hometown discount, or hit the open market and get the same total $, or more. The NHL has never seen this scenario before.

You can have Kane if he costs 11mil.

I think Kane and Toews will both sign 8 year $70 million deals to stay in Chicago.

There's probably upwards of 6-8 teams that would give Kane's agent a blank cheque for them to fill in the numbers if he becomes UFA.

I doubt Kane gets traded but if he did a team better be prepared to offer up a top 6 forward, 2 top tier prospects and a couple 1st round picks.
