An insider reveals the surprising price to acquire Patrick Kane and it makes people react!

The famous NHL informant Frank Seravalli revealed the surprising price asked by the Chicago Blackhawks for Patrick Kane and it makes people react on social media.

Indeed, according to Seravalli, the Hawks would ask for a return similar to the one the Flyers received for Claude Giroux, when he was traded to Florida last year.

The price would be a first round pick, another draft pick and a quality prospect for the famous number 88.

It must be said that the price is quite a bit lower than most experts anticipated, in return for one of the best players in NHL history. Last year, he had 26 goals and 92 points, and this year, he is at 3 goals and 15 points in 19 games.

It's worth remembering that Philadelphia got promising young player Owen Tippett, along with a first round draft pick in 2024 and a third round draft pick.

The hardest part may be being able to pass on the American's massive $10.5 million contract in the deal. Even with a 50% holdout by Chicago, the remaining $5.25M could cause problems. A third team will likely have to be included to facilitate Kane's inclusion on the payroll of a Stanley Cup contender.

According to sources, the teams currently interested in acquiring him are the New York Rangers, Washington Capitals, Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Kane and Giroux share an agent, Pat Brisson, who is passionate about getting his clients to the team they want to be on.

It's very similar, yes,» Brisson told The Athletic earlier this season. «The respect that both players have for each organization. Claude will have his number in the rafters in Philly one day, I do believe, and obviously Patrick as well in Chicago. Both players are very respected on those teams. Claude at the beginning of last season wanted to see how things were going to go with the Flyers. We realized pretty soon, by November, that if he wanted a chance at trying to win a Cup last season, he would have to make a decision. And he picked Florida. The Panthers were one of the most attractive teams at the trade deadline.
