There are a lot of ways that the Blackhawks can go about a Patrick Kane trade.

Patrick Kane, as mentioned before, is going to land the Chicago Blackhawks a first-round pick if they are smart. An NHL team that believes that they can win the Stanley Cup will always give one up if they believe that the piece that they are getting can help them get over the hump.

Patrick Kane, when surrounded by players that are better than bad, is the type of player that can be a game-changer. Don’t let the season that he is having right now fool you.

There is a good chance that he’d come in and be their best player going forward. If he was unleashed, he’d probably take over offensively with some of the players on that Islanders team that he’d be playing with.

Getting a second-round pick in addition to that first-round pick is something that can really help them. Kyle Davidson is clearly into adding as many picks as he can because he believes that he can turn them into great players more often than not.

Oliver Wahlstrom is a very good forward that is now a former first-round pick. He isn’t a star player or anything like that (yet) but the ceiling is very high for him. At 22 years old and being this early into your career, 6-7-13 in 26 games is very good. This is a good trade for both.
