Patrick Kane trade talk gets mixed reaction

Chicago Sun-Times Blackhawks beat writer Mark Lazerus posed the notion of the Stanley Cup champions parting ways with Patrick Kane, who is part of a criminal investigation in Buffalo. The reaction from social media was massive and mixed.

Lazerus wrote:

It’s still uncertain if the Hawks are seriously considering trading Kane in light of an ongoing police investigation in Hamburg, N.Y. But if they are, they won’t have any trouble finding any takers. At least five teams contacted the Hawks once the Buffalo News first reported the investigation — which involves Kane and a woman at his Hamburg home — and said they’d be willing trade partners should the Hawks decide to cut ties with their superstar winger, according to a league source. The 26-year-old is entering the first year of a record-setting eight-year, $84-million contract.
