Kane with the Leafs?

The buzz around Patrick Kane's next move is resonating across the NHL. Rumors suggest he's considering the Leafs, but is that the right match?

As highlighted on the podcast by TLN's Nick Alberga and Jay Rosehill, almost every NHL team is interested in Kane. While Toronto is certainly on the list, the attraction is universal given Kane's elite status.
But Rosehill is skeptical about him joining the Leafs.
"I just don't see how. I need to see where the cap situation is and how they are going to get under it. You sign a player of the calibre of Patrick Kane, that's going to have some ramifications down the road when his contract is on the books." - Rosehill


Does Toronto Really Need Him?

Securing Kane won't be easy, especially when considering the Leafs' rough cap situation. While his skills are undeniable, does Toronto's already star-packed lineup require his addition? Alberga weighs in.
"I just don't think the Leafs need another guy like that. They need to play a different brand, a different style, I think they addressed it here in the offseason. I'm not sure Patrick Kane, is another bonafide scorer." - Alberga

Alberga's point is valid. With the changes being orchestrated by Treliving this offseason, bringing Kane on board could be at odds with the new direction for the Leafs.
