Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic All Make List Of Top 25 NHL Players Under The Age Of 25. Thats Friggin Awesome, Kid.
Neil Greenberg of ESPN put together a list of the top 25 players under 25 years of age and Brad Marchand, Tyler Seguin and Milan Lucic all made the cut.
Im not going to get pissy about where each of them ranked. I mean, Neil Greenberg isnt the be-all end-all of NHL talent evaluation so I really dont give a shit who ranked above who in his mind. Its just pretty sweet that the Bruins have three players on this list.
