The Penguins writer from Trib Live Sports, wrote an article that has been posted on line, in which he basically calls out Pittsburgh Penguin Fans, The Players and the Front Office. He also dishes out a bit to Sid himself, but the moral of the article is to the Fans that are calling Sid out for being soft, or saying it is time to move on. Also, there was a players only meeting that did not include Sid that SOME PLAYERS attended and discussed how certain players would like to see the Captain C given out to someone else temporarily while Sid is not on the ice.
The article outlines some of Sid’s symptoms including a balance problem that no one can currently explain. The fact that no one can explain it has everyone perplexed and Sid Extremely Frustrated.
Eddie Olczyk’s commented this week about the Penguins, stated this teams psyche is fragile right now. Consider everything above and all the losing this team been enduring, it has the players questioning everything. Including the most talented player in the league, and the face of the NHL. It is an extremely edgy piece from a guy that has been in the locker room for years now. Someone I would trust.
I guess I have to ask, where is the coach during all of this. If there is this much contention on the team, and a tremendous feeling of uneasiness, not too mention the fact that GM Ray Shero stated today that not making the Playoffs is not an option, it truly makes you wonder if Bylsma is feeling a little heat in the rear right now.
