Blackhawks Kane Only Interested in Trade to Rangers, Maple Leafs

Patrick Kane trade rumors continue to swirl ahead of the NHL trade deadline, but when it comes to any potential suitors, he holds all the cards. 


That's because the three-time Stanley Cup champion has a full no-movement clause, which means Kane has control over where he goes and it sounds like his list of desired destinations is relatively short. 


Former NHL defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, now a broadcaster on TSN 1050 in Toronto, said Kane has serious interest in two teams.


The New York Rangers seem to be an unlikely destination at this point. They already acquired Vladimir Tarasenko from the St. Louis Blues, and Kane expressed his disappointment when asked about that transaction.


When it comes to the Maple Leafs, it will be difficult for them to make the money work. Toronto has just $296,666 in salary cap space, according to CapFriendly, and Kane carries a $10.5 million cap hit. Even if the Blackhawks were to retain half of Kane's salary, the Maple Leafs would have to jump through financial hoops to acquire him.
