Yes, I agree, he is a great player, I enjoy him, but it's ridiculous to compare him with Gretzky, Lemieux. Even Jagr, Forsberg are better than Sid. Sid is not even the best player in the league.
There is definitely a hype about him. In medicine it's called "treatment by suggestion", some kind of brainwash. Last season, sitting in the pressbox, he was still main headliner in a media
Well that happens when a guy has a start like Sid did in 11 and how he plays. Without that injury it's quite apparent that he would have had 2 incredible seasons in 11 and 12.
