Just three years removed from being selected #2 overall, Tyler Seguin is being shopped by the Boston Bruins. Multiple sources have reported the rumblings prior to the NHL Draft.


ProHockeyTalk:

RDS’ Renaud Lavoie reports Seguin’s name came up on Saturday as Boston appeared “really active” on the trade front, with Tampa Bay reportedly in the mix for the 21-year-old’s services.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie also passed along the Seguin news, a big revelation which could play into the Tuukka Rask and Patrice Bergeron extensions.

CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty reports the proposed asking price for Seguin is steep: Boston wants in the top-10 of Sunday’s draft (the Bruins don’t draft until No. 60 overall) and an impact-level roster player.

Personally, I think this is a big mistake by the Bruins unless they can get a “Godfather-like” offer they can’t refuse.

Granted, Seguin’s playoff performance had a lot to be desired posting only 8 points in 22 games.  His offense lacked no doubt about it, but I felt he improved defensively and fought more in the corners for pucks.

Seguin in the regular season has been one of the team’s top offensive performers over the last two seasons, so shipping him off is a bit premature in my opinion.

Seguinistas are crying today (myself included) of these rumors.

PC, all I ask is don’t pull a Joe Thornton trade, getting nothing for high upside and talent because you are growing impatient.

And what the hell am I supposed do with his jersey?

Perhaps the Bruins will let me trade it in like the Patriots are doing with Aaron Hernandez jerseys.

  • Stupid if the Bruins trade this kid, he's up and coming star!!!!!

  • Not stupid if they get Tampa Bay's pick and draft Drouin!!!

  • Big Mistake , but then again what do I know . I just wish they give him more of a chance like they did Joe Thornton

  • Keep seguin !

  • HE DOESNT HAVE THE GRIT TO BE A BRUIN,,,SEE HIM SPIN WHEN HE IS CHECKING,,GIVING LOVE TAPS WITH HIS BUTT,,,NO HEART,

  • They should definitely keep him unless they get a Top 5 pick and a second rounder and a impact roster player (preferably winger). The draft class this year is really, really good through the first 2 rounds

  • Keep Tyler!!!!!!!!!

  • Seguin doesn't have grit? Marchand spent half the season playing "Look I can't even skate because people keep pushing me down" and you wanna throw Seguin under the bus? I say trade Marchand. B's don't need a little diving rat. I don't care if he scores, I don't need a Carcillo on my team.
