Just to be clear, there's no love lost between Evander Kane and myself. In fact, he's made it very apparent he doesn't have much use for me and my work.

And while I think he's a helluva hockey player I also think he has a lot of growing up to do.

I've written things about Kane that he doesn't like. So be it. That's not uncommon in the world of pro athletes and the reporters that cover them.

But personal differences aside, what has happened to Kane in the last couple of days is absolutely shameful.
