You're acting like you know everything when you're truly just guessing. You can be a professional hockey player and an alcoholic at the same time. Their schedules are way too busy and the players are always around the players. In no way can he be determined a headcase by what the team's official (professional) statement is. Is he a headcase on the ice? No -mikeder
Jesus Wept... Tim, this is pure nonsense. He went out and got pissed.. as a young man (yes, earning silly money) in the Off-Season... which is important. Your graphs of earnings, etc makes zero sense when applied to a Professional Sportsperson.. they can ONLY go out and let their hair (mullet) down in the downtime when they are not doing their job 24/7.. and in the case of a Hockey player that's a long damn time. He's allowed to be a 23-year-old when he's not going to be pulling on a Hawks jersey for anything more than a photo-shoot in the next few months. He got lots of coverage because he's Patrick Kane. This whole post sounds (and apologies to anyone in recovery) like that AA questionnaire that basically means you're an alcoholic if you like to drink..
This is some insane overanalysis. However, it was an interesting thought that an opposing GM wouldn't want Kane because he has issues, instead of a GM having to give up less because Kane's trade value is down.
Bowman's comment was likely off the cuff -- you're reading too much into it. Regardless, I agree with your conclusion that Kane isn't likely to go anywhere
It seemed to me that Kane had a chaperone in the form of one of his parents, mainly his father, for most of the season.
