Could the Boston Bruins consider pursuing Patrick Kane, a prospective future Hall of Famer, in the event of his availability in the 2024 NHL free-agent market?

As the Boston Bruins players and coaching staff gear up for the 2024 Stanley Cup playoffs, their pro scouting team and cap experts are already laying the groundwork for the offseason. According to insights from Puckpedia, the Bruins are projected to possess approximately $21.7 million in available salary cap space, with the NHL salary cap anticipated to increase to $87.7 million.

As highlighted by Bob Duff of detroithockeynow despite enjoying his time with the Detroit Red Wings, 35-year-old winger Patrick Kane, who could become an unrestricted free agent in 2024, doesn't seem inclined to extend his stay in Motown. While he hasn't shown enough satisfaction to commit to concluding his illustrious career with the Red Wings, Kane appears to have returned to prime form following offseason hip surgery. He's reached the 20-goal mark for the 16th time in his career and has tallied 24 assists in 46 games. Kane, with 1281 points, is now second only to Mike Modano (1374) in points among American-born players and is just four assists away from surpassing Modano (813) to become the all-time assist leader for Americans.

Speculation circulated last offseason about Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney's interest in acquiring Patrick Kane. If negotiations with winger Jake DeBrusk fail to yield a new contract, could Sweeney turn his attention to the seasoned three-time Stanley Cup champion?
