Can Sid still be considered as a most valuable player candidate?
I truly believe that the answer is yes. I know that he has only played half of the season, but clearly, the absence of Sidney in the line-up is evident. This team has had a very difficult time producing goals. One can argue that Malkin is not in the line-up either, but Malkin, in my estimation was playing injured all year long anyways.
This could be the rare case.
