"I’ve always felt like Sharpie has been a big brother to me, especially coming in as such a young kid [like I did]," Kane said. "He’s a guy who’s always messing around and having a good time, and one thing people probably don’t know is how serious he is about the game. When you see someone like that who has as much expertise as he has taking it so seriously, it makes you want get better as a player, too."
"The same thing Kaner says," said Sharp. "I treat him as a little brother. It doesn’t matter if we’re on a 10-game winning streak or a losing streak, coming to the rink I’m always having fun with Kaner, joking around, talking about things we’ve seen in the league or around Chicago. He’s a guy who likes to have a good time, but he’s really dedicated to the sport, and he doesn’t get enough credit for that. I consider him one of my better friends, and I’m glad I can play with him."
