Connor McDavid Trashed Over Response To Question About Evander Kane

Connor McDavid is being trashed over the web, and it has nothing to do with his play on the ice.

The Oilers phenom was asked point blank by media members whether he would welcome troubled star Evander Kane on his team. And instead of deflecting the question to the hockey ops people (like most players would have done), McDavid decided to give an answer about not caring what the public perception is around his team.

“I’m not really here to discuss optic issues. If fans don’t like it, or the media doesn’t like it, or whatever. It is what it is,” Connor McDavid said.

Fans didn’t have a positive reaction to Connor McDavid’s comments about Evander Kane.

Fans were obviously so taken aback by Connor McDavid’s comments because of Evander Kane’s history.

In the past, Kane has been accused of sexual assault, domestic battery, gambling on hockey, etc. And on top of that, he has been trashed for being a bad teammate in his previous stops.

As of now, Evander Kane remains a free agent. But with the Oilers struggling, the rumor mill is churning out a link between Kane and Edmonton.

Clearly, Connor McDavid doesn’t care how awful of a human being Kane is if he can help the team get over the hump.
