Chicago Blackhawks Rumors: Patrick Kane to New York Rangers

The New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks continue to discuss a blockbuster trade as Patrick Kane is reportedly heading to the Big Apple. The talks continue but are in the advanced stages and it's being reported the deal is now closer than ever.

Pagnotta goes on to report the Dallas Stars were likely a close second, meanwhile the Edmonton Oilers and Vegas Golden Knights are no longer being considered. Kane was visibly frustrated when the Rangers acquired Vladimir Tarasenko as he felt this would likely mean he's no longer an option. Turns out that's not the case at all.

If Rangers GM Chris Drury adds both Tarasenko and Kane, his team is going to be very hard to beat come Stanley Cup Playoffs.
