We were just waiting for Patrick Kane’s decision.
Remember for all intents and purposes that the American striker was perhaps thinking of going under the knife for a hip injury that he has been dragging on for some time now and now he has decided to have surgery.
Kane is likely to miss the start of next season if his rehabilitation period is any indication.
We are talking about 4 to 6 months of rehabilitation, which is not nothing. Will this dampen the enthusiasm of the teams that will be interested in him this summer?
Patrick Kane’s representative, Pat Brisson, says Kane had a hip resurfacing today under Dr. Edwin Hsu. As is normal, follow-ups are planned, but roughly 4-6 months recovery is expected. Brisson says Kane “wants to play for a long time,” and doctors are optimistic that will happen

I really wonder what the other DGs will think of all this. Will they be afraid of not finding a healthy Patrick Kane, even when he recovers from his injury?
The question is valid. After all, we’re talking about a player who will turn 35 next November… Although the main player has never really been injured in his entire career.
I especially have the impression that it is its monetary value that could fall. Kane won’t make $10.5 million a year like he has for the past eight seasons, that’s for sure…
And I can’t imagine that any DG would want to give him a big salary with the uncertainties that reign over his state of health.
Patrick Kane’s primary wish is to play for a long time in the NHL and that’s exactly why he decided to undergo the operation in question. The doctors are confident that he will get his wish, but you and I know that in life, anything can happen.
It is mainly for this reason that the file could take a slightly different turn in the coming months.
Basically, Kane would definitely have been the best player available this summer on the free agent market… And you have to wonder whether the operation he had is a game-changer.
