Wait, what? *Patrick* Kane might be available?

I thought that Dale Tallon left town years ago, but apparently there's still some pruning in mind. According to the article (link in title), Chicago isn't happy that Kane went AWOL on the ice during their first-round playoff exit, only to be present and accounted for at hot parties around town. The thing is, if you are trying to deal a guy, why would you let it be known that the reason was that he was an unreliable performer? How does that help you get a fair deal on him? If you were trying to interest, oh, let's say the Islanders, who are probably losing their own first-line RW to free agency and have great draft position and a deep prospect pool. Would you say, "Hey Garth, we're sick of this party boy and his undisciplined ways and lousy work ethic, it's starting to hurt him on the ice - he can be yours for the fourth overall and Ryan Strome!" Lemme think for about nine seconds.... NO. That being said, if he goes at a discount, then what would be a fair offer?
