    Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?

    On the "#81 in Toronto" comparison - I think TS may actually be faster.  And his shot is more accurate - he'll have a higher career shooting percentage.  Love to see these things tested - maybe at the All-Star game? 

    I watched the goal on NHL.com and had buffering problems, so, completely by accident I got this freeze frame effect, first at the Bruin blueline where there were two, players between him and the Ranger goal and two others in position to rejoin the play defensively.  Next frame, 4 Rangers on screen, 3 behind but close, then Ranger blueline and only one guy with any bearing on the play.  Kid moves into the one guy's angle to get a better shot, and rips it.  I watched the shot 5 times and never saw the puck.  Just *ping* and Lundquist with whiplash.

    Only 36 because Courtnall backchecked, hit, fought and played on a defensive minded team or he would have had much more. Bure had no such responsibilites Pavel's hands and speed much better at 18 than Seguin not even close.

    Definitely the hands and shot of Sakic.  Speed and shiftiness of young Modano.

    Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?

    I understand the resistance to comparisons when they're used - a la Lucic - like a lodestone or to hammer a guy for not living up to the comparables.  Speaking of comparables - I also hate it as part of negotiating contracts.  But.  Comparison is a fundamental part of how we learn.  Our language is riddled with dead metaphors right down to a very basic level of sensory experience.  All it means is we recognize and associate based on some partial connection.  Lucic reminds you of Neely sometimes when he looks like a juggernaut with or without the puck or when the entire arena echoes from one of his hits.  Doesn't mean he is Neely, but on some level, he can remind you of Neely, and if you're a Bruins fan, you communicate some residual feelings for SeaBass to Lucic.  It doesn't have to be pernicious.

    And it doesn't have to be conscious.  You may be doing it even if you're just watching the kid play and he does something that recalls, say, something you once saw Yzerman do.  Or Bure.  And because that move is associated in your head with a great player, the kid is coloured ever so slighly by that greatness.  Don't fight it, man! (or woman).

    Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?

    'Dog...Courtnall fought?  You must be thinking of one, maybe two specific incidences because the guy I remember wasn't that kind of gritty - maybe 20-50 Pims a year.  And it wasn't just that he played a more complete game than Bure - Courtnall had rocks from the wrist down sometimes, but he could get hot.  I know Hab fans who got so incredibly frustrated with him.  I'd put him on the mid-way point between Paille and Bure for hands.

    The only 18yr-old Bure I can speak to is his WJHC participation. He was 20 when he got to the NHL.  That said, I'm not trying to turn this into a Seguin=Bure debate.  Pavel was one of the fastest skaters and deadliest puckhandlers of the last 30 years.  But when I look at TS's first goal and the one last night, and if you ask me who they reminded me of, I think of Pavel.  That kind of just lights out explosion coupled with the ability to put the puck through a mail slot in stride.

    "Deep dishing" pie heh?  

    Anyway, Duinne is correct but I think a poor man's Yzerman.  Bure, nope, that guy could flat out fly and would go to the front of the net as well.  Courtnall is a good comparison but Seguin has potential to be a better shot.  Yup pure speculation but it is better than reading recipes.

    Watch Seguin after that goal last night. No real celebration of any significance. Just skated behind net raised his stick a little then skated to the bench to high five his teamates but the look on his face said to me that he isnt there to show people up. Kinda like Bobby Orr used to do.

    [QUOTE]Messier second tier?  That's the NHL's second all-time leading scorer, right?  Guy with one for both thumbs?  Maybe he's not at the top of the all-timer list, but I think he squeaks above the bar that separates the all-timers from the greats. I'll throw one out there - Bure.  He's got that level of explosiveness - and if he harnesses it like the Russian Rocket, lookout.  That kind of creativity at high speed too.  So far, that's the one element of his game that sticks in my head for comparison - he's a different animal when the puck is on his stick.  Vision's clearly there, etc. etc. and maybe when he's developed beyond a raw physical talent, I'll change my mind. For now though - Pavel.  TS alread has better hands than Krusty Cournall.  If Courtnall had any hands at all, he'd have scored 60 in '93...like Bure!
    Posted by Bookboy007[/QUOTE]

    Yup, Messier is second tier on my list.  The first tier is Bobby, Wayne and Mario.

    Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?

    Bookboy beat me to it, I was gonna say Pavel Bure. The other person he reminds me of a bit is Steven Stamkos. They both have excellent speed, hockey sense, hands, and a wicked shot. In a couple more years, I can see these two battling it out for the Richard Trophy each year. Seguin needs a bit more confidence and a bit more selfishness. I've been seeing him pass up shots in order to make a pass, trying to be a good team player. He needs to start ripping it more.

    I think Crosby and Ovechkin are at a different level, they have a certain presence that elevates their game above everyone else at times. Either one can dominate a game when they decide to do it. That's special.

    You all know that I have been Tyler Seguin's staunchest advocate since day one.

    I'm glad to see that he is winning everyone over - like I knew he would.

    Tyler Seguin will be Tyler Seguin! - and I repeat, the face of the Bruins in the 21st Century. He will be thought of in the same breath as Robert Gordon Orr, when it comes to the Boston Bruins.

    He reminds me of Mason Raymond alot. The way he can skate and score goals.

    His passing is definitely not as good as i thought it would be but something he can become ok at

    Are you being sarcastic?  Winning everyone over???  Seguin was loved by everyone here and hyped from the moment he was drafted by everyone here.  Hard be a 'staunch advocate' of someone that was already loved by all -- join the club.  Is anyone surprised that he has looked good?


    Along those lines, I don't care what anyone says, I will argue that Ray Bourque was a good defensemen.

    What???? His passes are unbelievable! Savard-Like passes on the PP he shocks people with how fast he gets the puck to them sometimes that causes them to fumble it.

    He also is trying to get used to slow recchi and all over the place wheeler. I like him on a line with Thornto and Paille though with the way Thorty is playing Paille's speed and Seguins awesomeness its a fun line to watch.
