Found May 13, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
from Larry Brooks of the NY Post, • Guaranteed to happen the moment the Blackhawks dismiss general manager Stan Bowman: Père Scotty Bowman will leave his role as a senior advisor in Chicago and return to Montreal in a similar capacity to work beside GM Marc Bergevin. Marc Crawford, we’re told by an informed operative, essentially has no chance to be hired by Bergevin as the Canadiens head coach. The question being asked is whether Crawford — out of the league this season following his dismissal in Dallas after 2010-11 — would be willing to make his return behind the bench as Quenneville’s assistant coach in Chicago, 17 seasons after Quenneville served as Crawford’s assistant in Colorado for the 1995-96 Stanley Cup champion Avalanche. • Perhaps if the Predators simply had suspended Alexander Radulov and Andrei Kostitsyn for breaking curfew without the self-serving but ultimately self-destructive chest-pounding “This isn’t who we are!” proclamation, the matter would not have turned...

Patrick Kane: International Partier or International Light Weight?

The ‘Boy’ Still Remains In Patrick Kane

from Rick Morrissey of the Chicago Sun-Times, Twenty-three-year-olds still have some wild oats to sow. I was 23 once and so were many of you. But we weren’t representing an NHL hockey team. We didn’t score the goal that won the Stanley Cup for the Hawks. Our lives weren’t very public…. If you Googled “Patrick Kane’’ on Saturday, the first item that came up was “Patrick...

Time for the Hawks to flush Kane

Dead Spin Photo It would appear that Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane needs to grow up and start acting like an adult and not a punk. Also, maybe Kane could learn a think or two from his fellow teammate Jonathan Toews on how to behave in public and not some spoiled brat. After a subpar postseason series against the Coyotes during which he had four assists in the six-game...
