If Chicago trades Kane because of his off-ice **** which, aside from the whole Cab driver thing, has been blown WAY out of proportions, they're ****ing idiots.
With that being said, I don't want Kane on this team. We're already stacked on forwards and if we somehow get rid of Briere's contract I wouldn't want to spend that money on another undersized winger switched to centre with no defensive game.
He would be an interesting piece to think about. Much more of a passer than a shooter (I think we need a shooter) but I wonder if someone like him could spark Briere's offense again like Prospal and Leino did. I'd imagine he'd pull $3.5-4.5m/y though...
Pens D Paul Martin just told me that he played the first three games against the Flyers with concussion-like symptoms.
Martin said nothing to trainers until after Game 3. At that point, he was shut down for the rest of the series.
Martin said the concussion took place at some point in Game 1, but he isn't sure precisely when
Any idea when the hit was?
I'd still say that it's an excuse for him sucking, mainly because he said it, but literally no one else on the team, like the GM or a doctor that checked up on him or Bylsma, said anything different before he did.
