he had plenty of push against ottawa. he's getting targeted by talented defensemen and can't adjust. like in the 2008 finals, 2009 finals and the 2010 habs series. sid's playoff abilities are definitely on trial right now. point to a series where we've played a tight defensive team, and he hasn't looked junky. it's not a fun notion, but i don't see how it's not on the radar.
