08:27 AM ET 09.20 | For Blackhawks sightings, Johnny's IceHouse West was the place to be Wednesday, when, among others, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Patrick Sharp, Dan Carcillo and Brian Campbell skated and scrimmaged for nearly an hour. [Kane] skated with the group for the first time after missing Monday's session. Kane is happy with his offseason which included more skating than the previous summer when he was recovering from wrist surgery. "Looking back to when I was the best I was, I skated a lot," Kane said of previous offseasons. "That's what I tried to get back to a little bit. Just be on the ice more." Kane was asked if he really thought the lockout would last the season. "I don't think it will but you never really know," he said.

You know Patrick...it just occurred to me, but the number 88 has not ever been too lucky for those that have gone before you...
You are also going to have trouble finding those, that will proclaim...I stand before you, to say I am behind you...
And you're too short too.
