Patrick Kane may be on the move, and though some reports have him linked to the Buffalo Sabres, the Florida Panthers are purpotedly very much in the mix. Florida Hockey Now’s George Richards points out that the Panthers are tight to the cap–that’s with Aaron Ekblad still buried on LTIR.
There’s “work to do” as Richards points out, but Kane to the Panthers makes a whole lot of sense.
In the cateogory of making sense, I took a look at the 2005-06 Pittsburgh Penguins through 13 games and was rather surprised by the similaraties to the current crop of Chicago Blackhawks. Crazy to think it was 18 years ago already, but Crosby opened the season with a six-game point streak–only to experience his first at game #10.
The Blackhawks beat the Penguins in game one of the season–a rally no less.
It’s a fun comparison and one I’ll keep looking at as the Penguins started with a generational player surrounded by veterans–and a few rookies sprinkled in.
Wonder if the results will be similar, too?
