    INCONVENIENT VODKA: should the PATS had SEGUINED AH or taken the Bruins approach?

    sorry for bringing some more blunt vodka to this koolaid topic.. but seems to me what the bruins did with tyler is what the pats should have done like 2 years ago or definitely before last season or before that big contract. could have waited for a year before his contract ended before extending him. no prob w/giving gronk his $ 2 years in advance. seguin may go on to get maturity in a few years but it wont b on the bruins dime. they hae to win NOW. the pieces they got back makes it more likely they will win in the next 2 years than w/seguin. cant be babysitting folks.

    they knew enough about his partying ways and immature company to assign a full-time guard to his hotel and to run sureillance on behalf of the team. they did it for one pplayoff period after doing their homework and not practicing plausible deniability. by all accounts he was certainly better on the ice for most of this year and even in the playoffs. can see the upside. just 21, like AH came in way too young and refused maturity. bruins could have rationalized like pats but set real boundaries down that will resonate in that locker room.

    there is a BRUINS way, not sure what the pats way has been for the past few years! pats need to channel their inner chiarelli/neely going forward.

    There's no parallel here so you can put your vodka away. 

    Seguin would never have been traded if he had performed to his level and developed on the field. 

    If he was playing great the Bruins would have accepted his partying downside.

    Your faux moral outrage over Hernandez is kind of hard to take dude. There are criticisms to be made here, but your fantasy that bigtime sports can have soulful morality at the center is hopefully naive. 

    Bigtime spors are about money first and foremost. You can't worship two gods.

    Seguin was traded because he played like he cared more about fresh cut flowers, scarfs and the Toyota Priuz. The Bruins would of had no problem with his partying if he could of gone into a corner and won a battle in the playoffs, or scored when he was within 15 feet of the front of the net, or didn't get knocked off the puck with ease...this kid may of been "partying" but he was in no way, shape, or form in Hernandez's league of "partying". If Hernandez and Seguin ever ran into eachother at a club and had a disagreement Seguin would be found in a dumpster. 

    I remember when this kid was being compared to Steve Yzerman. Yzerman was a smaller guy who played with heart, skill and toughness. Seguin cares about getting through a game without pain, so he can party with his dork friends later....and look unblemished for his internet photos.
