The Vegas Golden Knights disappointed in the 2024 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and now with big changes expected, they could land a former three-time Cup Champion.

A year ago, Patrick Kane's arrival in New York was heralded as a Stanley Cup winning move, but unfortunately the veteran failed to fire in the playoffs, and the Rangers were left disappointed with the blockbuster move. However, Kane bounced back as a free agent signing in Detroit in 2023-24, tallying an impressive 20 goals and 47 points in 50 games played.
Now, his free agency will become a major story again over the summer, with the 35-year old veteran linked to several potential landing spots. One shocking team may now enter the race, as the Vegas Golden Knights, coming off their own playoff disappointment have been linked to the former Blackhawks star.
"The 35-year-old continued to produce last season, helping the Red Wings to a 91-point regular season. Kane unsurprisingly recorded 47 points (20 Goals, 27 Assists) in only 50 games last season with Detroit. In the case that Vegas' front office is unable to negotiate a fair deal with Jonathan Marchessault, the 2013 Conn Smythe winner could pitch in. It's unlikely the 4x All-Star will score 40+ goals but he could be close to a point per game player. Another beneift, term won't be a problem with Kane.

So, clearly Kane is an option. Akin to how Phil Kessel came in for the 2022-23 campaign but with much higher expectations. Would Patrick Kane help the Golden Knights lineup next season? Certainly, but there is a safer option. Jonathan Marchessault."

With a roster still ready to compete at the Stanley Cup level, this addition would make plenty of sense for Vegas, and with several players expected to move out, it would be a good career move for Kane, so now we just wait and see if this ultimately pans out.
