Sidney has to grow into role as league 'face'

Your People of Power and Influence issue is always thought-provoking.

I would like to remind you that Sidney Crosby is a young man who is still developing that "voice." I don't know about you, but my "voice" certainly isn't the same now as it was when I was Crosby's age.

Give Sid "The Kid" time to find out exactly who he is. Sure, he's the face of the NHL, but there are other, more experienced players who can - and should - be the league's voice, at least until Sidney finds his.
