In response to marco0863's comment:
Would you rather have seg or loui playing rw on first or 2nd line
Here's the thing seg had a dismal playoff last year the year prior vs wash every bruin had a hard time scoring
And we got beat by wash and holnsby who was a rookie So singling out seg is unfair
Point is giving up on a 21 yr old with that much talent is a waste . I was looking forward to the further future seeing seg and march.
Now seg getting lots of ice in dallas - Do u think thst any other current bruin woukd be doing the same as him if they were in Dallas getting same Ice time.?
It's what one believes seg should be in the future. If one believes he's destined for a lifetime of playoff medoicrity then the fact he's gone favors then but I Don't. Hes 21 And would have learned from it- It's called
I'm no nba fan but that said of a particular player thst he didn't have whst it takes to be a champion his name LEBRON JAMES
Time to put this whack job to bed. Kessel/Seguin, Kessel/Seguin, blah blah blah.
Hardly any ice time versus Washington in the series? Thats your excuse? Your either misinformed (shocker) or lying. Go check his ice time for that series. He got top 6 forward ice time (every game) as San points points out. Two games he had more ice time than Bergeron did, and in one of the games only Krejci had more ice time among the forwards.
There goes that excuse.
Wait...Here it comes, but none of the other players were socring!!!! Okay genious, lets go to last years playoffs. Did the Bruins have trouble scoring? How were Seguins numbers the enitire playoffs?
They gave up on a 21 year old with that much talent? Are you serious? Are you all there? He was warned on several occasions, his agent was spoken to. He was disciplined for his behavior and lack of immaturty. Result: Showing up hungover to the rink in the playoffs wearing the same clothes he left the arena in the day before. Those are facts.
Looking at those facts, would you say the Bruins gave up on the talented 21 year old, or would you say the talented 21 year old gave up on the Bruins?
Peter Chiarelli did not give up on Tyler Seguin when he traded him. In fact, he did everything BUT give up on him. He tried everything he could to get that player to realize the magnitude of the situation. He was paying him alot of money, and the player was not getting it. In fact, it was getting worse, in the Stanley Cup playoffs no less, on a team built to compete for the championship.
On another team, in another situation, perhaps they could live through the "growing pains" of a talented young player. Not this team. This team is poised to win now, and the player failed to recognize that by continually to ignore the advice he was given by management and teammates.
Some professions pay you big boy money, expect you to make big boy decisions and show big boy responsibilites. He failed to do that. That is why he is a Dallas Star.
He wrote his own ticket out of Boston.
I wish you'd follow him.
