    Well, we know he didn’t hurt it in a fight……. Maybe when he got tapped in the face and took that awful “Sedenish” type dive in the playoffs……????

    Now I know he’s not paid to be a fighter & I get it……. But sheesh at least stick up for yourself…. I heard the WGN TV sports guy say Kane looks bigger, like he’s been hitting the weight room….. I sure hope so….. He is immensely talented offensively but lacks testicular fortitude…… (Brian Campbell anyone…???)

    @Joe You know, Kane is one of the smallest players in the league. He got hurt from playing hockey. I don’t think he got hurt from not being tough enough. If anything, PK should abstain from sticking up for himself. Punching people only increases the chances of another wrist injury. Stan Bowman brought tough guys in to protect Kane so he doesn’t have to do it himself. I don’t want Kane fighting at all. I just want him doing what he does with the puck.

    Molitor Lizard,

    I’m being sarcastic, I don’t expect Kane to fight, but he must stick up for himself, too often last season he got roughed up & his play diminished…. He’s still young & hopefully he will get a little meaner with age…..

    My point is I don’t want to see Kane lumped in with the likes of the Sedine twins / divers….. He’s too good a player with so much talent…… And I agree he’s not a crasher & banger, I’m glad they got him some protection……
