Patrick Kane with the Montreal Canadiens: he would be the perfect complement for Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield, according to Jean-Charles Lajoie

Since Jeff Gorton joined the Canadiens, there has been a dream of him making a "Artemi Panarin-like" signing that significantly accelerates the rebuild. It's worth noting that he was the architect of what we see with the Rangers today.

Jean-Charles Lajoie expressed a wish to see the star land in Montreal, and it's safe to say his testimony ignites the imagination:

"Without even asking if Kane, a native of Buffalo, would want to play in Canada, I want to dream a little at the beginning of the weekend.

The Canadiens are following a clear and precise plan, that's true. But Kent Hughes has occasionally let slip, in some interviews, that there is in his plan the idea of grafting a big natural talent to his team, a star player who can 'change the game.'


Kane is a left-handed player who plays on the right wing. If I close my eyes and imagine Kane complementing Nick Suzuki in the center and 'Goal' Caufield on the left, I have a lot of fun.

I smile and daydream about seeing prolific Kane donning the predominantly red jersey of the Canadiens on a Saturday night at the temple...

I have no difficulty recreating the sound of the crowd leaping and screaming after a laser shot from Kane into the top corner."

Certainly, when signing a star, it would be preferable to be a younger player signed long-term. Still, imagine seeing potentially the best American forward in history land with the Habs! It would be quite a coup, especially alongside our two stars!
