Yep we don't want to tar our boy with the reference of the Kane name.  Looks like this may end freeing up a lot of cap space on the Hawks.

So with all the stuff going down with Patrick Kane, can we all stop comparing Marner to him.

None of the comparisons say anything about off-ice conduct, and I think most people are smart enough to make that distinction. If he's like Kane on the ice, then he's like Kane on the ice.

Well depending on what comes out of this investigation, I hope he is nothing like Kane off the ice.

Even without this investigation, I hope he's not much like Kane off the ice. It's not like Kane had a sterling reputation before this.

I understand that no means no and practiced that in my younger life.  I do feel a bit for Kane on this one as the lady in question did go home with him at 4am from a bar.  Still no means no is the key.
Rape is a crime of violence (of extreme violence) and cannot be condoned no matter what the circumstance.
What I don't understand with his bankroll, is he could afford the top escort services in the world, so what the frikk is he doing?  Just doesnt make sense at all.
How long are the Hawks going to stand behind him on this one and of course if he is charged and convicted it releases them from their commitment to him.

So this should really go in the Kane thread.   My whole point of posting in this thread was to differentiate Marner from Kane.

Thanks, Heroic Shrimp!

Marner looks very strong on his skates, quick and soft with his hands, and always involved with the play.

Even for just on-ice stuff this past seasons Tyler Johnson was always a better comparison for Marner anyway since Kane's pretty bad defensively. The Kane comparisons were really just because both players played for the Knights.

I'm making the Giroux comparison happen.

He's basically Crosby without the whining.
