This one hurt, I’m not gonna lie.
I know he’s expensive as hell but I would give anything to have Panarin back in Chicago.
The duo of Kane and Panarin was a beautiful sight and having them back together in Chicago would flip the script on where the team is now. I was praying for Panarin to return on a budget this past off-season but that wasn’t in the cards for us (thanks Bowman).
On top of that to hear a player like Patrick Kane, who has 3 Stanley Cups, 973 NHL games, and 389 NHL goals in his 13 NHL seasons, say that playing with Artemi Panarin back in 2015-2017 was the “funnest hockey he’s ever played” made me sad.
I feel like George Bailey in “It’s A Wonderful Life” when he’s chanting “I wanna live again!” but instead I’m saying “I wanna win again!” Someone, please find a way to reunite these two in Chicago, that’s all I ask.
