Patrick Kane is Butthurt After The Rangers Traded For Tarasenko and Not Him

This year's NHL trade deadline has Patrick Kane as the top target, and numerous teams have expressed interest.

The New York Rangers are one club that sticks out more than the others. Why do they stand out? The Rangers have a talented bunch of forwards, and the organization of the Rangers puts a high value on their happiness and commitment to keeping them all together. On the other side, Artemi Panarin, Patrick Kane's closest buddy who was traded away by the Blackhawks management years ago, is now a member of the Rangers.

Things rapidly went south the other day when the New York Rangers made a blockbuster trade to acquire Vladimir Tarasenko from the St. Louis Blues. As a result, the Rangers no longer have budget room to sign Kane, who was obviously expecting to go there.

In his interview, Kane made it quite plain; see a few of his most recent statements below:


Patrick Kane on the Rangers' Tarasenko deal:

"It's not like the happiest I've been to hear about a trade. ... If things are going to happen, that was a team I was definitely looking at. It seems like they kind of filled their void and went ahead and made a deal."

Patrick Kane said he and Pat Brisson haven't outright told Kyle Davidson what he wants:

"Obviously you want to do right by the franchise, and the organization here has been amazing to me and given me so much. So you definitely want what's best for both sides."

Kane is clearly disappointed and you cannot blame him, the Blackhawks are in tank mode and his remaining years in the NHL are being wasted.
