I like this quote from the article and I agree 100% with the GM who said it..
"I'd freakin' take him in a heartbeat," an NHL GM, who requested anonymity, told ESPN.com this week. "No question about it. He's a great young talent. He can do things few young defensemen can do. I don't care about the other stuff. He'll mature as a person and as a player. I can live with that. The Canadiens would be crazy to ever deal him."
on him and crosby, i remember this season against pitts where pk hit him or got the puck away from him or both and sid gave him a little bump as they were heading near their benches. it was a respect bump. he got frustrated by PK and his check was like "you got me good you ****er!" i think sid likes and respects PK for that drive they have in common, and that passion. completely different players but they have the same thing fueling them at their core. maybe the olympics one day soon...

the more you hear about him the more there is to like
I've never really understood all the hatred directed towards PK to be honest.. I wonder if he wasn't a Hab would he still get crapped on this much?
All I see is a guy very confident in his abilities and I love reading quotes like the one below from him..
"It's hard to compare myself to the other 21- and 22-year-old defensemen in the league because they probably haven't gone through half the things I've gone through playing in Montreal. But that being said, it's made me such a better player. I'm confident I can play anywhere else in the league and I wouldn't have any problems. Playing in Montreal is a unique experience and I love it. I love playing in this pressure-cooker. I love the attention our team gets. This is what you want. As a young player coming into the NHL, you want to be in the middle of everything. I really thrived on it."
