I think the most important thing for him to do is to continue what ever he was doing. In the BC era, he was getting mugged on nearly every shift with no retaliation coming from his teammates. In the Philly game, he takes a stick to the chops once, breaking his teeth. No penalty. Takes another stick to the face from the same person. Yells to the ref and get's called for a penalty. The very next day, Ken Inchcock calls him a diver. So, then he's labeled by the refs and all the other teams who are piised that they didn't win the lottery. Refs start calling less penalties. Sid starts retaliating himself, get's called for a penalty, argues the call and gets slapped with an extra 2. So then, that seemed to be the norm for all the refs. The best way to put him in his place is call a rediculous penalty against him, wait for him to say one thing, and give him another one. It was never more evident when, just a couple of weeks ago, he got called on a bad hooking call. He said one thing, and he got the extra. It was almost like the refs had a vendetta against him. Heck, Ron Francis argued with the refs everytime there was a whistle. Anytime Kasparaitis is called for something, he acts like the ref must have been high.
I want to see Sid in the box alot less. But I don't want him to lose the passion. I think he is best when he's taking shots at opposing players behind the play. Or when someone takes a cheap shot at him.
He will learn when or when not to argue a bad call. This year was a good measuring stick for that. And I think next year, we will see an even better Sidney Crosby.
In case any of you were wondering what BC means...
