The Daily: Patrick Kane Won’t Be Signing Anywhere for Awhile



First it was former Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews capturing some news on the free agency front, his name not included by his agent as one looking for a new team. It’s now Patrick Kane, who purportedly will not make any moves to sign until he’s fully recovered from his hip surgery.

According to ESPN’s Greg Wyshynski, Kane and his agent Pat Brisson are more than happy to wait things out, with Brisson quoted as saying that both Kane and Toews wanted to retire Blackhawks. When that didn’t happen, Kane is going to wait for things on his terms.

It appears the long-time Chicago wing will keep an eye on the standings and pick the team he believes is in a good spot for a Stanley Cup run. Based on early returns? Might he head out to Carolina, early favorites for the Cup? A return to New York? What if he joined forces with Sidney Crosby in Pittsburgh?

Regardless of where he chooses, what speculation this will drive for the next four months.
