ATTENTION ALL PEOPLE IN LINE, NO MORE QUESTION ABOUT KANE SIGNING HIS CONTRACT.

"Hey Evander, you think the new CBA will be better than the current one for you?"

"Man, only 5 days til the CBA expires, eh Kaner?"

ATTENTION ALL PEOPLE IN LINE, NO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE CBA WHEN EVANDER KANE COMES BACK FROM THE TOILET.

"Man was that a huge number two or what? You were in there for a while. I've been there, eating more bran nowadays to stay regular. I bet you got a dietary plan and everything right?"

"So.. Kane.. ummm.. hows.. stuff?"


I'm sure there will be more than a few awkward questions regarding his contract and the CBA but then again I'm sure it's already a little awkward signing autographs for people older than you.

I do feel bad for Kane though, to the extent that one can feel sorry for a millionaire playing a game, given his reputation, which to this point is unproven. We don't know that all these stories of him brushing people off, not making eye contact or being impersonal are not just reflective of a shy/socially awkward young man. Hopefully he does more signings and public appearances and builds up some good will. It would be great to see him become the franchise player, on and off the ice, that he's capable of being. I also think his desire to play here and his impression of this city is more up to us than we'd like to believe. We're not doing ourselves any favors by running him out of town over rumors.
