From what I have seen, yeah Sid has not been impactful in this game at all, but there are some definite things I was pleased about seeing. And that was his ability to play in traffic, and take hits. He didn't shy away from any contact, took some big hits to make some simple plays. He skated well enough. Not in super Sid flying mode, but decent. We expect our big guns to make plays basically every single game, but with Sid, I think a bit of cautious expectations are in order. At least for me. Wanna see him get back to playing with confidence in the physical aspect of the game. Once he gains his confidence in that respect, (and I think that is a reasonable assumption that he might have lost that a bit), the rest will fail into place. And of course, the fact that we won the game certainly takes any offensive onus off Sid, looking at the game in retrospect.
