In a deal that got the whole hockey world talking, Detroit signed former Blackhawks superstar Patrick Kane to a one-year deal, hoping to add some goal-scoring punch and veteran leadership to the forward rotation.
Kane is 35 and coming off a serious surgery on his hip, but he still might have some magic in those skates. Even bigger is the Red Wings signaling to their fans that it’s playoffs or bust this year.
