Sidney is very practical in his thinking.
I recently read an article on the Penguins webpage in which Sidney made the following statement (which is the basis my reason this week).
“You don’t want to waste any games. People don’t decide to go to work three days out of seven. I don’t think it’s fair for us to show up three out of four (games). You have to show up. You owe that to your teammates and the team in general, and to the fans. There’s no excuse for that.”
