Where’s Patrick Kane?

from Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune,

Kane finally reached double figures last week. His 10 goals for the season rank outside the top 100 in the league. Excuse me, but is he getting paid like, I don’t know, the 109th-best player in the NHL? I’ll hang up and listen for the cursing.

Kane hasn’t scored a goal in his last three games, has one goal in his last 10, two in his last 15, and three in his last 24, one of which came on the power play. He has 13 assists in that time and is a minus-7.

Kid forward Jimmy Hayes has more goals than Kane in the last three weeks, and Hayes hasn’t even been here that long.

This sounds like a rant leading to a demand that the Hawks trade Kane. But no, that is not what this is leading to. That’s not the point.

The point is that Kane either show up or be sat down.

Kane absolutely must make a difference. He has to scare teams. Too often, he looks like a peewee out there. Too often, he’s just not dangerous.

He’s skating out towards the blue line while Datsyuk is scoring the game winner in OT; that’s where Kane is.

There’s really a ridiculous amount of places you could go with this.  I’m interested to see if anyone cares to try.

Funny, yet also true and answers the question accurately…

Things going badly for Kane fills me with glee. I am not ashamed of this.

Plus it’s written by Steve Rosenbloom who is equally as much of a “writer” as much as $0.20 is a “hockey player.”
