    The IQ thing can be confusing to some.  Seguin has some exceptional natural talents.  Shot, speed, stick-handling.  Those don't automatically translate into a lucrative NHL career.  The maturation process will make him better in many ways, but it will in no way impact that IQ quotient.  Being able to fathom what "will' happen on the ice, how "to' maximise your playing partners strengths....those intangibles can't be taught.  Gretzky wasn't arguably the best ever because he mastered every skill to perfection, it was his ability to see what others couldn't, coupled with high skill levels.  The ability to channel energy as opposed to wasting it,... literally dozens of intangibles.

    RESPONSE: I guess that, by hockey IQ, you're referring to instincts for the game. The ability to anticipate, and to adequately judge when to pass, when to rush, and when to shoot the puck. Gretzky had those things. So did Bobby Orr. 

    Seguin had some knocks in Jrs about his game, then it appearred he overcame them.  The Bruins have had a complete change of heart on this kids overall potential.  A complete 180 in the last year.  I don't think they did that because of his maturation development.  They didn't do it because of the cap.  I'm of the belief they traded Seguin because they've given up on the idea he'll become elite.  They can deal with maturity if neccessary, but they can't teach those other senses that are paramount to eliteness. 



    RESPONSE: Perhaps you're right about the B's losing faith that Seguin would ever reach his full potential. Otherwise, why make this trade?

    I would have given Seguin another year, but whatever. Throwing Horton out of the discussion, the team right now is better post trade. We'll see what happens with Tyler, but I've seen enough Stars games to know that Eriksson is the better player presently. I think coming close to the cup this year, the B's are in win now mode, not wait for maturity and consistency mode. People waiting for elite level return on the trade when Seguin has 3 years in the league and hasn't shown he was worth elite level trade value=unrealistic. In Tylers defensive, he was only 21, but the sample size was ample. Getting rid of Peverley who was overpaid made this deal worth it.

    RESPONSE: As currently constructed, do you think that the Bruins have enough talent to challenge the Black Hawks and others next year? What do you see as the team's greatest strength, and weakness?

    Butler..??? hah

    Thanks for the info......infinitially more valuable than all the bulllshi*t rumours!!

    I am hoping Matthias and Markstrom keep progressing as I see them as the cornerstones of that franchises' success!

    Keep us posted my friend.

    Happy 4rth!!!

     



    I think that Huberdeau kid, along with Barkov, Kulikov, Gudbransonov, Bjugstadov, and maybe Grimaldiov are at least as imporntant as those two. 

    I wonder if Tallon is pitching Markstrom as his goalie just to reap a few more years of top five picks?

    After watching yesterday's display, it's clear that Tallon is completely handcuffed by ownership.  There is no way he was spurned by everyone except Jesse Winchester, Joey Crabb and Mike Freakin' Mottau.

    Seriously, those are the additions.

    "Jesse Winchester, Joey Crabb and Mike Freakin' Mottau."

     

    That's a bad western, you cannot make that up.
