Needless to say though the man is an absolute workhorse on the ice every single shift, at BOTH ends! We often applaud Sid for his work ethic, but if you ask me I don't think Geno is far behind either, as he plays with just as much intensity and fire in his eyes as any other guy on this team.
I firmly believe it's part of the mentality here mostly with Sid showing the way. Sid's work ethic has rubbed off on everyone here. Geno said as much in an interview after the Ranger game last week. That they see how much Sid works off ice, during practices etc. Plug in a guy like Mike Kadar and it's really become part of being a Penguin. Theres a reason Lovejoy can just get plugged in and doesn't look too out of place. Kadar and the staff really do a great job.
