  3. Based on the reaction from multiple Red Wings fans on social media, they're pleased with the newest addition to the team.

Bottom Line: How will Kane perform with Detroit?

The recent hip surgery Kane underwent might temper fans' expectations regarding his return to the peak performance of his Chicago days. It's common for athletes not to fully regain their former abilities after such operations.

Nevertheless, the encouraging aspect is Kane's ability to manage 57 points last season despite playing through a sore hip. As for his performance with the new team, it remains to be seen how he'll adapt and contribute, but his resilience and past performance under duress hint at a promising transition
