Attaboy Doc, this had to come out sometime. This was one of the first "cancer in the room" moments.....
I know he came back the next year, after being traded to GMJR's Carolina Hurricanes none-the-less, and played well with the group we had. I also know to not believe media accounts about the locker-room, but I have to think that there is some truth to those rumors. There was on-ice evidence; Sid's first year in the league, none of the "older" guys jumping to protect him when he was being harassed by Forsberg, etc.
I was never a huge Recchi fan, especially after the 05/06 season, and when they brought him back I was thinking wtf. We'll see how this pans out. I can't say I'm pleased with the moves we've made this off-season at all.
