Patrick Kane calls canceled games a “scare tatic”

Patrick Kane provided the Chicago Tribune’s Chris Kuc with an interesting take on the announcement that all of November’s games have been canceled.

“More than anything, it seems like a scare tactic to us,” Kane said.

The growing doubts about an NHL season even happening seem appropriately frightening for Halloween, so it’s unclear if Kane’s comments match the mood of the majority of the NHLPA.

In fact, fellow Chicago Blackhawks teammate Steve Montador seemed quite concerned when he discussed the lockout’s impact on fans with’s Tracey Myers.

Either way, it looks like fans will need to accept the prospect of watching other leagues and charity games for the near future.

    Screw u Kane. Maybe if u fire jerk Fehr there will be a resolution. What a dick. All this could have been prevented if he would have started negotiations Last year. It is all about how much power he gains. U r blinded by his motive strictly self centered. Wish someone offered me 50/50.

        Newsflash: nobody’s in this for you guys. Not the owners, and not the players. And nor should they be. They’re not going make a huge decision that affects their lives, their future, and their business because YOU want to watch them play hockey. Get over yourselves.

      Why would it have been solved if Fehr wasn’t here?

    Oh Patrick, you were doing so good taking the high road unlike your buddy Toews. The Fehr brothers brainwashing continues. Do the players realize theyre not getting paid? And that no matter how good of a deal they get theyre not making up a lost years worth of pay.

    Who can hold out longer? Owners? Players? Who has the most money and can take the hit right now? I think the owners are in a position of power, and there is a deal to be made. The players will have to admit defeat as others have done in other sports. That being said, I believe one day we’ll get the word that the players convinced Fehr to go back to the table and work with the owners proposal to save the season.

    Kane, along with the other players, is part of the problem.
    Neither side is willing to negotiate. Neither side is willing to compromise.
