I do have a small quibble with people getting upset with Kane turning the puck over. Cute drop pass at the blue line? Shaw needs to get that deep. Kane? You let a top 5 in the league playmaker do his thing. Yes, it won't always work. Yes, it'll burn you occasionally. He's also instant offense and can win a game single handedly.
He can still make space and create offense while being smart with the puck. His fiddling w/ the puck at the opponents' blue line is one of his habits he never seems to break so I guess you have to live with it. But you'd prefer not to. And it's something he can improve while also maintaining his great offensive skill. And he certainly has improved it significantly since his rookie year.
