Patrick Kane is without doubt one of the extra intriguing commerce targets this season as he has only one yr left on his contract and the Chicago Blackhawks are successfully tanking.
On Saturday, the Twitter account @OilerAnalytics transcribed some quotes from a radio look by ESPN’s Kevin Weekes.
Weekes named the Capitals as one of many prime three groups he’d prefer to be traded to.
Kevin Weekes on ESPN radio: “Patrick Kane has acknowledged a number of occasions that he doesn’t need to be a Leaf, and that he desires to go to a crew that he feels really has an opportunity on the Stanley Cup.”
“Oilers, Rangers, and Caps are the highest 3 groups on Kane’s record.”

A Northern Virginia fan weblog picked up the information and now a few of Caps Twitter is debating the deserves of buying and selling for Kane.
The issue is the tweet was (kinda clearly) pretend and Weekes didn’t report this.
“I by no means mentioned any of that truly!!” Weekes mentioned to RMNB addressing the rumor.
He added that whereas he has championed the Rangers as a very good match for Kane prior to now, he has by no means given “any commerce record nor something of that kind”.
So, simply to be clear, the Caps aren’t trying to commerce for or are within the operating for the opposite problematic Kane. So we will cease speaking about it now.
It’s simply an Web troll doing troll issues. Watch out who you retweet and comply with!
