The Off-Season from Hell Continues

As if the Blackhawks needed another PR disaster to hit this summer, here comes another.  The news is still developing, but Patrick Kane was arrested in Buffalo last night after he and a relative reportedly beat up a cab driver over a dollar and 20 cents.  Nothing like having your biggest fear realized.  This should play out nicely….

    I’m probably inclined to defend PK88 because I feel as though many Hawk fans don’t fully appreciate his talent.

    That being said, this story makes no sense. First off, the rap against Kane is that he’s a bit soft. Hard to believe he’s punching cabbies. Secondly, it was over a matter of pocket change, I can’t imagine someone going ape shit over that.

    The truth will come out, we’ll just have to wait and see.

    @Jason, I really hope so. We don’t need anymore garbage this off-season. As Second City Hockey put it, this is just putting more cluster in this fuck of an off-season. :p

    bigger question is what is a high profile NHL 20 year old doing in the nightclub district. Not like he can get in anywhere or can he?

    I wonder who’s ID he used??????

    does anyone actually believe that patrick kane beat up a cab driver from BUFFALO?

    jeez, what a joke.

    @Lou: You think a high-profile NHL’er, despite what their age is, can’t get booze in damn near any bar?

    @josh: The more I think about it, the more I think someone is looking for a payout. But you never know.

    duh! unfortunately, his status as an athlete gets him the front line news.

    it will be interesting to see how much fabrication exists in this one.

    at least the dumbass was smart enough to be taking a cab.

    Check out my post on it, Puck Daddy dug up links to a picture & video about the situation. The cabbie seems legitimately pissed.
