“I am definitely appreciative of being able to play with Sid. He has raised my game and shown me that you need to be able to compete every night to make yourself better and keep getting better at the game, it doesn’t matter what your age is. He drives you to be better every single night and you have to go out and produce.”

“As a linemate, as a friend, I see what he does every day and I have a great appreciation for what he brings to our team and the type of player he is. (Kunitz has) worked hard and he’s done a lot of things to earn the right to play on this team.”
