from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
All have embraced that facet of their job description so far, and Roberts and Recchi seemed to have had a good rapport with their younger teammates last season. Maintaining that will be critical so that the roster doesn’t cleave into cliques, with younger players drifting away from the older ones.
Even if that would be a byproduct of benign causes—things like different outside interests, tastes in music, etc.—it could curdle a team’s chemistry, shredding the bonds that are an important part of most winning clubs.
“If you have the right group, you don’t have that problem,” Sydor said. “And from what I hear, you don’t have that problem here. The old guys like being around the young guys—they make us feel young—and the young guys want to hear stories and stuff like that from the old guys.”
