For me it's not so much that he has to be getting "top marks" as much as it is that a year ago, you'd most likely have gotten different results. So, at least amongst current players, it seems that his 'stock' is falling.
Considering the strong debate on the former board about whether or not his on ice demeanor was turning off fans, officals, teammates and oher players (How did that thread start, I think it was something about a poster complaining that they were watching the game with their father and younger sibling and could lip read Sidney dropping F-Bombs left and right), it's interesting to watch this develop.
To me, he's still an exremely talented child. We keep coming back to this, but at 18, there was NO WAY I could have withstood the glare of all of the media attention. (Heck, I'm not sure I could now).
Sid will most likely have 300 points by the time he turns 21.
That thought alone makes me shake my head in amazement.
