NHL Rumors: Chicago Blackhawks Could Trade Star Winger Patrick Kane
The NHL Draft is coming up soon so a lot of NHL rumors are starting to pop up. One of the biggest names that could be on the move is Chicago Blackhawks right winger Patrick Kane. Kane, who is extremely talented but has some issues, would certainly bring back a lot in a trade.
Kane had one of his worst years on the ice last season as the Blackhawks were bounced in the first round of the playoffs. His off-ice behavior also has the team wary about keeping him for the long term. A bunch of photos popped up of Kane being extremely intoxicated in Madison, Wisconsin.
Getting drunk is no big deal if you are of age. However, Kane is representing the Blackhawks. I am pretty sure the team does not want that hard partying, reckless reputation. If they did want that rep, that would not be so quick to condemn Kane.
Kane is still extremely young and he can still mature. A lot of young kids that happen to make a lot of money act like idiots. It seems that the team might be sick of waiting for him to mature. Some people take longer than others to get the message.
I do not think trading Patrick Kane would be a good thing for the team. He is so talented and you do not want to dump a guy just because he drinks too much. Alas, this is the life cycle of NHL rumors.
