Chicago Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane – Trade rumors are just rumors

Patrick Kane is well aware he’s been the subject of rampant trade speculation for months. The Chicago Blackhawks’ winger just doesn’t believe the hype.

“It was all just rumors,” Kane said on Thursday from Chicago’s training camp media availability. “A lot of the rumors are just rumors, maybe people looking for things to talk about in August when nothing’s really going on with hockey, right?
