Not to go too far off track, but I found this part of lawless's article much more interesting (and important in terms of the hockey side):
"They also point to a trend. Kane isn't very coachable. On or off the ice. He's a talent. But he's also a problem -- there's no disputing that.
Teammates have tried to reach him on certain subjects. He doesn't listen. If he wants to bring his girlfriend along on the road, he does so. Veterans have tried to hammer home that road games are business trips. Focus should be on the work. Kane does what he wants when he wants. He's a teammate but not yet a good one."
Was Lawless just waiting for an opportunity to break some of these things out?
Not coachable on and off the ice
Doesn't listen to teammates
Brings a girlfriend on the road and doesn't treat the road games seriously enough
Not a good teammate
Now granted Lawless could be 100% wrong or 100% right, or somewhere in between in his comments above. IMO though, those two paragraphs, and what they imply are much more important to me than any dialog over the twitter picture.
