NHL Rumors: Patrick Kane, Jakob Chychrun, Boston Bruins, and the Vancouver Canucks

Could the Patrick Kane trade go down today?

Elliotte Friedman: If the New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks wait until after 5:00 PM ET today, Kane’s cap hit would count against tomorrow’s number and it could work for the Rangers. There are still things going on behind the scenes like the approval, equipment and logistics.

Vince Z. Mercogliano: As Friedman notes, the Rangers needed one more day (Wednesday) to accrue enough cap space to add Kane. Expect to see in Kane in Philadephia on Wednesday.
