Patrick Kane Keeping Busy Getting Busy

From DeadSpin‘s Barry Petchesky, the continuing exploits of Mr. Kane:

Kane went home to Buffalo after the Blackhawks were eliminated, but returned to Chicago last week because he missed “the life.” That would entail getting a black eye under mysterious circumstances, attending a Bulls game, and bringing home a woman who got a little camera-happy. [...]

You know who understands the value of photographic evidence? This young lady, a senior at Illinois. She met Kane at Underground, the self-proclaimed “sexiest nightclub in Chicago,” and left with him. To prove it to her friends (because who would believe Patrick Kane would drink and party, right?), she took a few photos of a sleeping Kane. And to end any doubt, she fished through his bags and found his boarding pass:

Read on plus photos.  Between the photos, and the whole ‘fishing through his bags while he’s sleeping’ thing, that “young lady” is one creepy pick-up.

Deadspin’s final words on the matter: “We won’t use the pejorative “P-B” term, but Patrick Kane is like the Stanley Cup: every girl in Chicago gets a day with him.”

Class. Real Class.

This kid is almost as stupid as Reggie Bush.

I think the most telling thing is that he keeps finding himself in the company of 6s, 7s, and 8s.  Guy’s got a cup ring and he can’t nab himself a 10?

Patrick Kane treats women like he treats backchecking.  If it looks to hard to do, he doesn’t even bother.  He’ll just hang out in the neutral zone until an easy scoring chance drops in his lap.

Thanks for pointing the obvious out, Kat.

We’re talking about him making stupid decisions leading to this going public.

Making stupid decisions is one thing, but so do a lot of 20-somethings.  It’s his bad judgement picking up random sociopaths in bars that really makes me cringe. 

Granted, I haven’t been single in a long time, but is that the way people really are allowed to behave these days? Photos of your sleeping date posted on the internet, and searching through their stuff?  Freaky.

Exactly. Patrick Kane’s certainly not the first hockey player (or guy, for that matter) to take a woman home from a club, but he’s the only one whose judgment is so bad that he keeps getting photographed passed-out after-the-fact.

What’s funnier is that he (allegedly) got beat up by a bunch of bouncers the other day for not having the sense to not run his mouth at much-tougher dudes. Was it Sean Thornton who nearly pulled him off the bench for doing the same thing during the regular season?

Good analogy.

It should be a big deal for the Hawks.  The guy they have signed for 4 more years a $6 million cap hit keeps making dumb decisions and lives with a BAC more potent that whatever beer the local bar has on tap.

There’s a certain 50-something cab driver in Buffalo who has to be enjoying this whole thing.  LOL

The problem is he seems to party during the season too. And if he doesn’t start to taper it off soon, and get serious in the off-season, he’ll be talked about in the past tense with phrases like, “He had so much potential”...

Didn’t he miss a few games with alcohol poisoning the flu mid-season? Wasn’t he photographed falling down drunk at 5 AM drinking chicken soup the night before the first game he missed?

Seriously. Not good looking and a psycho.

If Stan had any of his father in him, he’d tell him to put it away before he wound up being Huet’s teammate across the Pond.
