That article was trolling brilliance.

I dont think there is one person in the Hawks locker room who dislikes Kane or his evil twin, Kaner.

If he was going to be traded, he would have been. Nothing came of it, so.....

the little man has spoken

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...,6586707.story

a partial quote from the article:

Quote:
"We all saw the photos, they're pretty embarrassing," Kane said before the opening ceremony of the Blackhawks Convention. "It was the offseason and you're trying to have a good time but you have to realize the spotlight you're in no matter where you are. For me, the situation I'm in now is you always have to act like someone is watching you.

"I was looking for a good weekend with my friends and things probably got a little bit out of control. From seeing the pictures to the stories, it's not fun to see but hopefully it's something that can make me better as a person."
there's also video from his press availability today...prob on the Hawks website or on CSN Chicago. I'm too lazy to find a link...so go do your own research.

It's beyond silly that it's still even a story.

yeah, i agree. it should never have initially been a story (i think he's getting a bit old to go to undergrad drinkfests...but that's just me )...the only bad thing was all those stupid photos got taken.

if there's a lesson he needs to learn - it's not that you shouldn't drink your face off in your 20s (god knows, i did)...it's that if you're a brand name player for a brand name NHL team then you can't let yourself get photographed doing stupid sh-t. lots of people do the same in their early 20s...but the trade off for getting $6m+/year as a 23 year old is you give up some of the luxuries of impoverished Kraft-dinner eating anonymity.

incidentally, Jesse Rogers tweeted that he was interviewing Sharp on ESPN 1000...and I decided to listen online. I realized I'd never heard Rogers before...I've only read his online content. What a clown!!! He came off as a complete tool. People on this board have complained about him - but I have previously defended him...insisting he was "quite alright"...that was only b/c i read his blog on ESPN website, which is fairly objectionable.

...after hearing him on the radio today, i understand why a bunch of you hate him.

lol..."mea culpa", indeed!

From the looks of it, he seems to have that part figured out

That the Blackhawks F.O. has expressed chagrin about Kane, and that Kane himself has acknowledged that he was embarrassed and is vowing to clean up his act means that it IS a story, unfortunately.

Almost all young people get intoxicated now and then and do something stupid in public. However, most young people aren't living in the spotlight and representing a storied sports franchise. Partying excessively in the wake of a championship is expected and forgivable. However, subsequent incidents aren't quite so easy to laugh off, and it does make people wonder if Kane has some sort of problem.

For the record, I like Patrick Kane very much, and I do hope this helps him grow up and refocus and realize that gifts come with responsibilities, to himself as well as his team. I hope the next time he makes headlines it's because he's playing great.
