Patrick Kane should pass Denis Savard in points.

Like how Kane should pass Steve Larmer for third all-time in goals, Kane should also pass Denis Savard to take hold of the third position in all-time points with the franchise. Denis Savard currently sits with 1096 points with the Blackhawks, something Kane could pass next season.

This past season Kane collected his 1000th NHL point. He is only 74 points away from tying Denis Savard for third all-time as Kane currently has 1022. Obviously, next season will be a shortened year that might play a part, but Kane should still excel.

Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2015, Kane has put up more than 74 points ever season. This is remarkable because before that, he already ever put up more than 70. The Blackhawks rely a great deal on Patrick Kane, and because of this, we see him in big situations for the team, that often lend to him being a point per game player.

Honestly, I would expect to see Kane put up another long point streak again next year, and that alone should help him climb up the ladder. However, Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita sit pretty comfortably ahead of Kane in points, so do not expect another jump for some time.
