Chicago’s Patrick Kane could be one of the biggest trade deadline acquisitions in recent memory. Every team in the NHL would want Patrick Kane on their team, especially for a Stanley Cup run. But for the Tampa Bay Lightning , the chances of being able to land Kane are zero.

Many fans online have wanted to link Kane to Tampa Bay but that is very wishful thinking. Tampa Bay will likely find a much different dance partner at the deadline than bringing in Kane. The trade rumors for Kane have really begun to heat up within the last week or so and it is time to put an end to the Kane to Tampa hopes some may still be clinging to.
