Congrats to our captain Sid for winning the Messier LeadershipAward, it just goes to show what a great leader and player Sid is! Also, he won the Rocket Richard Trophy along with Steven Stamkos!! Though Sid didn't win any major awards, but it doesn't matter. He doesn't need awards to show what a great captain and player he is!! I am so glad he is on our team...everyone else is just jealous=]
