Chicago Blackhawks Morning Links- A Sad Day

By Keith Schultz

Good Morning Chicago Blackhawks fans! Yesterday was a sad day to be a Patrick Kane fan that’s for sure.  Normally I’m all over Twitter when news breaks, but when it’s this kind of story I would rather stay off social media and the internet basically and wait for the facts to come out.  Luckily for me, I had things planned with my kids that took me out internet service for most of the day so I was mostly out of the loop anyways which was just fine by me.

Right now everything is allegations which is why at Blackhawk Up we have only given you one post about the Patrick Kane incident with updates because nothing has officially happened.  Patrick Kane hasn’t been arrested or brought into the police station for  questioning which is why even though we have 8 writers and 8 different opinions on the matter, but we are waiting for more news to break before publishing our posts on the subject.

Now a lot of other sites including the Buffalo News who broke the story have published plenty of opinion pieces so today’s morning links will be full of what other people think so Here We Go.

Here is the allegations and a timeline for Patrick Kane’s activities over the past week from where the story broke yesterday (Buffalo News)
