sidney stanley


Watch this. Worth it.


On the ice, he’s a guy who can change a game pretty quick with the way he shoots the puck and his playmaking ability. He doesn’t need a lot of time and space to make plays. As far as off the ice, he brings an easy going attitude. He doesn’t take things too seriously. He’s pretty laid back. He brings a lot of laughs and that’s great.

It was my wife’s birthday Wednesday. We went out to dinner (just like every other night), and as we finished up dessert, I couldn’t help but think about Sidney Crosby.

People always ask me, “What’s Sid like? What makes Sid so great?” Well, I do believe I have found the secret to his success.

It’s dessert.

He loves dessert, and it has been the driving force behind our playoff push.

From Magnolia Bakery in New York, to Georgetown Cupcakes, he refuses to be denied.

So if you’re ever questioning that dessert at the end of dinner, just remember, Sidney Crosby would … and it has worked out well for him.

“"It’s my dream. Me and Sid, just like that.“

“Hopefully, me and him can have a lot of memorable nights together.”

“He’s my…I don’t know how to say it.”

“It feels like we grew up together here.”

whenever i talk about hall of famers i can’t stop thinking about how the players i watch today are going to be regarded in 20+ years. how will i tell my kids about jonathan quick? what will they think about tyler seguin? about brad marchand? what if im watching the draft with them and they tell me about an upcoming pick and it’s max pacioretty’s son? or brent burns’? im gonna tell them about watching auston matthews’ debut as a teenager or about watching sidney crosby win the Stanley cup and what if they don’t understand the significance behind that because it wasn’t their time like the way i brush it off sometimes when my dad talks about tomas sandstrom and my mom talks about rob blake. it’s so weird for me to think about new generations of hockey. i can’t imagine what it’s gonna be like when im older but im so excited for the game to keep growing.
