That is what young people do if they can. i don't read in to the third party reports of the he said she said and all supposedly made to the writer of the article. What did he do have a sign that said hey everyone come tell me your bad stories of Patrick Kane so I can write about it. Sounds to me Kane took home the girl the author was trying to bang at the bar.
If there is a problem with his drinking I am sure someone in the chicago organization will read him the riot act and make the necessary adjustments. If the staff doesn't do it hopefully someone on his team will take him aside and help straighten him out if if affecting his on ice performance. There is no way me you or anyone can say he has a problem just from reading this article or assuming what happened with the cabby up in buffalo.
He was arrested for assaulting a cabbie in Buffalo as well a few years back. There were rumors then of his drinking. I don't think blowing off steam is equal to blackout drunk. Seems he may have a drinking problem. He wouldn't be the first NHLr to have an issue.
