Exactly. This is what I have been trying to say. Does Sid actually need a high-scoring winger on his side? No, he doesn't. He can do just fine with Satan and Feds. Just give it some time and hope for the best. That being said, I think both Sid and Geno will have their coming out parties tonight against the Flyers.
you're right, he doesn't need a lot of talent on his wings to produce. BUT...
he needs an effective power play to produce. he gets an inordinate amount of points from the power play. he's been productive at even strength, but not the "plug anyone in and he'll be fine" player he's made out to be. i think satan and Player X will suffice once everyone gets into a groove, but satan is pretty much the minimum level of player i'd want in that spot. i don't know what the options are for next year; we're in a unique position of having 2 centers this expensive. it's all uncharted waters, so i can't even guess at what's best.
