These stupid concussions.
I agree. I was a big Sid fan since he came into the league, actually since his one season in juniors too. I remember when Gretzky called him the "Next One", and he wasn't wrong. What an amazing talent, speed, hands, shot. He has it all. He was truly the closest to being Gretzky-like than any player I remember since the Great One. Youngest captain to ever win the Cup, Youngest player ever to score 100 points, great Olympian and World Junior Champion. Only behind Greztky, Lemieux, Bossy and Orr, for points per game average. That says a lot, considering he played in today's defensive style of hockey, as opposed to the insanely high scoring days of the 1980's that Gretzky, Lemieux and Bossy played in.

If he is indeed done, it would be a huge loss, just like Lindros and his concussions.
