NHL Rumors: 2 Dark Horse Landing Spots for Patrick Kane

Patrick Kane is still a free agent, and the hockey world is anxiously awaiting for his decision. Although teams like the Buffalo Sabres, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Detroit Red Wings have been linked to him, let's discuss two dark horse potential landing spots for the future Hall of Famer. 

Carolina Hurricanes: The Carolina Hurricanes have an extremely deep roster and are expected to compete for the Stanley Cup this season. Yet, when looking at their group, they could use a big-time difference-maker with their forward group. That is what Kane is when playing at his best. Perhaps if they move out some salary or Kane is willing to take a cheaper deal, these two could link up. 

New Jersey Devils: The New Jersey Devils are on the rise and are expected to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. They have some cap space to work with, so could they join the Kane sweepstakes? He would give them another top-six forward and a bit more experience as they go for a deep run this year.
