Patrick Kane.....What Are You Doing?

Patrick Kane was charged earlier today with attacking a cab driver in his native Buffalo, starting because the cab driver lacked the 20 cents for change. The driver said he was choked and punched in the face by Kane and his cousin for not having the correct change. I remind you, this is a player in the NHL who will make millions in his future and made $875 000 last year. Completely disappointing for a man who is fresh off the cover of NHL 10 (soon to be best hockey game on the market) and the cover boy for the Chicago Blackhawks. This is absurd, why would you even.......ugh.......arg..........common sense, come on. Patrick Kane looked to be one of the main reason for the resurrection of hockey in Chicago and now has serioulsy jeopardized his image and standing in the hockey community. It's just frustrating to see shitty behaviour from him. I expect this from Terrell Owens and pricks like A-Rod but nowadays anything is possible I guess.

I thought fighting was what made hockey worth watching.

@Colonel_Cool: With willing participants, on the ice, as a response to a transgression by your opponent.
 
Not choking a cabbie because he doesn't have 2 dimes.

Back in my day, 20 cents was enough for a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake, and a newsreel, with enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the polo grounds.

I didn't see that coming from him since he is one of their best young stars.  There already are rumblings from the press that he should not be allowed to play for Team USA in the 2010 Olymypics.

He won't fight anyone in the league, but he'll beat on an old man over 20 cents. He's a classy guy.
