  1. This media event was a disaster. What was our senior management team thinking?

    I understand we had little choice but to have him in camp. After all no charges have been laid and he has yet to be convicted of anything. Banning Kaner until the law says he has done something wrong is not possible. We can’t over react to what could very well turn out to be a claim without merit.

    As a Blackhawk fan this situation ruined what should have been a summer of celebrating another Cup. Now it appears it will drag well into a new season.

    Even worse I fear Kane is now damaged goods. Whatever the outcome this situation has to weigh heavily on his mind. He is likely to have lost some of that carefree youthfulness that allowed him to take risks on the ice that helped make him great.

    And we have him locked up for the next eight years at $10.5 M per year. We may very well end up wishing he was convicted so we could escape that deal.

  2. ^Just like Drew Doughty right….. Smitty he wouldn’t be one of the most elite players in the league if your carefree theory were true. This in no way will affect Kane’s abilities.

  3. Smitty you think Hawks fans will hope Kane is convicted(again not even a charge at this point) just so the team can get out of his contract? Your statement further implies that Hawks fans will want this conviction regardless of whether he is guilty of anything, because he is now damaged goods. There are so many problems with your comment that its hard to know where to start. Do us all a favor and retract it.

  4. ESPN says that the Hawks should use the situation to make a difference. Give me a break he hasn’t even been charged yet. But I have to agree the media situation was a disaster.

  5. Guys…the idea of that conference was to put at the same table the brain trust of the Blackhawks and Kane. It’s a TOP sign of support.
    Poor choice at a factual PR level. You have to know there’s going to be a fucking highly ignorant guy there asking Kane if he thinks he has an alcohol problem and if the club plans to make him go to AA meetings. Or an over hyped chick criticizing the Hawks for not talking with the accuser’s lawyers !!! For fuck’s sake… do those people think before opening their mouths ? You have to be stupid in order to ask such moronic questions. The Hawks knew.
    Which makes their public show of support that much more important in my eyes. Basically the opposite of the ‘keep your distance’, ‘bail on him’ versions that where in the majority (most likely).
