Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli issued his most emphatic critique of Tyler Seguin since the forward entered the NHL.
“He’s got to commit his mind and focus to the one task at hand,” Chiarelli said. “He’s got to become more of a professional. You know what? I can say that about a lot of 21-year-olds."
I really dont understand why Peter Chiarelli has a thorn in his ass over Tyler Seguin these days. I really dont. This past season, he scored 16 in 48 games, which was good for second on the team. He also scored 25 goals in 29 games during the lockout for EHC Biel. Combined, he scored 41 goals in 77 games.
Sure he only had one goals in the postseason, but its not like he was dogging it. The dude had 70 shots in 22 games. That was good for second the team, behind only Patrice Bergeron. And he showed strides in terms of his defensive play this postseason too. I mean, he isnt going to be a Selke nominee anytime soon, but the guy isnt a net hanger like Phil Kessel.
Maybe its simply the fact that Chiarelli is just pissy because his team didnt win the Stanley Cup or maybe he's just jealous because Seguin gets laid more than he does. I dont know. But the guy has to lay off Seguin. He really does. I think Chiarelli is a great GM but the guy is starting to piss me of with this irrational, unnecessary ball busting.
Tyler Seguin will be just fine.
