There’s No Business Like Show Business

Chris Drury was apparently given a proposition he couldn’t refuse: adding Patrick Kane to an already very skilled line-up.  The move came after the former Blackhawk used his NMC leverage to force Chicago GM Kyle Davidson into negotiating with one team – the New York Rangers.
