In response to asmaha's comment:
We're better fans than this.
Not sure what benefit there is to these types of comments. Every time a player leaves an organization, some writing clown makes these types of statements that tries to "tell it like it really is". Rubbish. It's worse than KPD trying to run Thornton out of town with every article.
Another terrible article here: http://www.boston.com/sports/blogs/obnoxiousbostonfan/2013/07/tyler_seguin_bruins_trade_dallas_analysis.html
"Seguin was both a victim of sky-high expectations and rock-bottom effort."
Really? Rock-bottom? Has this idiot ever watched 75% of the league during games in May?
"The whispers and unattributed Tweets about his partying during the season, especially all that allegedly happened in the Toronto series, only added to the frustrations of both his teammates and Bruins fans who saw much more potential than production."
Frustrations? Whispers. Ok. Who on the Bruins roster said anything about frustrations with Seguin ever? Name me one fan around here who attributed Seguin's Toronto series to gee, kid shouldn't be out drinking. This is all conjecture and 20/20 hindsight.
"Here's the most important thing young Mr. Seguin needs to know about Dallas - last call is at 2 a.m."
Great journalism there. Let's use a major newspaper column to say someone is an alcoholic without quoting sources and no direct proof that this is the case. Whispers.
I'm not sad about this deal at all. I think after today I'll be quite happy with it. But the way this kid is being attacked on the way out of Boston is way out of line.
sorry asmaha, some fans aren't better than this.... they've done it many times before with other players.... with some it's what have you done for the B'S lately....
that said it doesn't surprise me because fans can be fickle....
what i found surprising was PC calling out the kid.... this could've been kept inhouse....
that said, i like the trade and only hope Tyler becomes the player he was supposed to become.... even if his time as a B'S was short, the kid still provided us with some memorable moments....
too bad there won't be more....
