He's got a much much higher ceiling and he's proven he can step up in big playoff games.

What's not to like? Oh ya he sometimes gets drunk and says rude things to dirty girls when out partying. That honestly doesn't bother me one bit, and has no affect on his value as a hockey player IMHO.
It sure as hell does affect his value, at least in my books. You have to try to build a team around character guys and Kane would totally defeat the purpose. Can you imagine him showing up at practice totally hung over when you have guys in the gym working like mad?

I wouldn't touch that guy if they gave him to us... and yes, I'm dead serious. I'd rather pay for a guy who's worth it, both on and off the ice.
