Patrick Kane Denies Having A Drinking Problem

When you combine an incredibly dull summer with another Patrick Kane drinking extravaganza, you get the most honest question a Chicago Blackhawks beat writer has ever asked to open up the convention: ďDo you have a drinking problem?Ē

Itís a fair question. Kane has made news the past couple of years more for his adventures off the ice than his actual play on it. Iím actually surprised this is a question that no one had asked Kane before Friday.

Kaneís drinking has been covered well on Deadspin and has led him to be involved in more fake trade rumors than Roberto Luongo. Itís even also led us to question him in the event that he misses a game with an illness.
