BitterSweet Swiss Goodbye To Seguin


Bruins star Tyler Seguin did not renew his contract with Swiss league team EHC Biel,to play in the Spengler Cup and with hopes to return to the Bruins if the NHL Lockout ends.

There is NO DOUBT that he will be missed in the land of clocks and chocolate. So much so that Swiss news writer Beat Moning,  published an open letter to Seguin in the newspaper Bieler Tagblatt:

On 25 September you landed in Biel. A shy young man at first sight and after the first interviews. The first practice has already shown: What you will show us is Hockey at it’s finest. You played 29 Games for EHC Biel, scored 40 points. This alone says enough. But anyone who has seen and followed you through all these weeks can now really understand what hockey can be. Fine art. Sometimes you have taken a lot of risk, some passes didn’t arrive. Normal, you are only about 21 years old. On January 31 exactly on the same day that our Biel-born player Gaëtan Haas will get 21 years old. We would have liked to see you two together celebrating this anniversary with the team. Well you left us. We can not be angry. The contract expired, and you did not want to sign a contract till the end of the lockout. You will not only be remembered as the young man from Canada with the whimsical smile. What you have shown us on the ice, your speed, your technique, your eye for the right thing at the right moment and not least your hard shot, all this is unmatched in the 73-year history of EHC Biel. In other words, dear Tyler Seguin, you’ve made history in Biel. Even though you’ll probably never see this place again, we hope that you take one or the other positive memory with you to Boston. I’m sure one or the other people from the Seeland-region in Biel will come visit you in the National Hockey League. In order to remember a time that will never be forgotten. Thank you Tyler, all the best.

Damn and I thought I had a MAN CRUSH on “The Kid”.

Segs Hangin’ With His Linemate

While playing for Canada in the Spengler Cup, Seguin was reunited with Bruins linemate, Patrice Bergeron.

They look MUCH BETTER in Boston Bruins BLACK & GOLD!

Diggin’ On Thorty’s Stache

Looks like Andy Ference is catching up on American TV since he has been back. Shawn Thornton has been busy during the lockout by trying out being a commercial star.

I looked all over the internets for the car dealer TV spot where Thorty is sportin’ “The Duster” with NO LUCK.

If you found it, please post the link in the comments! Thanks!

Just Because I MISS Hockey So F’N Much!

End The Lockout….STAT!!
