Lightning Before the Thunder
In which Sidney Crosby does the unthinkable and goes to Russia.
Or, in 2003, Sid and Geno meet at a tournament in Břeclav, Czech Republic. A month later, a labour dispute causes a lockout in the QMJHL.
Sidney is not about to sit around and wait while the money sorts itself out. He’s got hockey to play, even if it won’t be in Rimouski.
(Evgeni is just along for the ride.)
