    It's true that confidence is the key.He needs to feel like he can try things without fear of being benched if it doesn't work out.I think the 2nd half will bring improved numbers for Seguin as long as he gets the opportunity.

    I knew the kid could thread needles like that, his goal impressed me more. He read the play really well, made the play to paille and instead of watching it got open, opened himself up and cranked a quick one-t upstairs....special stuff

    Look at Taylor Hall in first 10 games.  He laid an egg.  He picked it up after game 11 or 12, and started scoring in bunches.

    Maybe Tyler is ready to start doing the same thing.  Hopefully Julien puts him back with Bergeron and they start pumping them in.

    If he could play with Bergeron and Marchand it could work .Recchi hasn't got the wheels to keep up with him anymore.Not a knock on Recchi as a player.It's just a fact he's gotten older.Have Recchi play with Thornton and campbell with some PP time thrown in.Seguin,Bergeron and Marchand should be able to cycle the puck like crazy since they're all so quick.I guess we'll see what CJ has in store for Seguin soon enough.

    I have never had any doubt Seguin can make things happen when given the chance....been saying this all along....Glad to see his stuff last night.. I don't think it's a confidence issue with him as much as he simply is not getting played enough.  Look at the stats:

    Time on ice Among Rookies:

    Hall ranked 11th just over 18 mins. per game
    Skinner ranked 23rd just over 16 mins. per game
    Seguin ranked 66th just over 12 mins. per game

    IMO, every time I see Seguin on the ice, he creates opportunities.  If you like that dish pass he made last night...go back to that SO loss in TO and see his nice little back handed dish to Campbell for a goal...The kid has tremendous hands....looking forward to alot more to come.....once he's given more of a chance.

    I'll be happy when he stops going out of his way to avoid contact along the boards and has more takeaways than giveaways.

    Had 6 shots on net, a + 2, as someone else pointed out a + 5 on takeaways, I don't know what his faceoff % was. I can't say it was a big step but he was moving forward. I would like to see him on the PP.

    I'd be interested to see the powerplay time on ice for both Hall and Skinner as compared to Seguin. I'm certain that they are getting way more of a chance than Tyler is.

    Skinner-113 minutes PP. Hall-89 minutes.Seguin-56 minutes.You're absolutely right.

    Yes,Yes...Put him on the Power Play. He's obviously their most skilled player. Is there anyone else you have confidence in during their shootouts? I don't think so!! Maybe he's a little weak defensively because he is still young but on PP it's not as important so get him some open ice and let his skills come out.

    The big step he took was from along the boards to the middle of the ice where he was born to play...at CENTER. Let Greg Campbell play out of position not the #2 pick and the centerpiece of the franchise's future...

    Re: Anybody else think Seguin took a big step last night?

    Don't think it was a really big step, because I'm pretty happy with how he's moving along.  It's very obvious he's oozing with offensive potential, but he also needs to learn the pro game.  Some great talents get it sooner than others, some never do.  Comparing Seguin to Hall and some others is unfair at this point.  Seguin is part of a fairly good team with big expectations, and he's not gonna get the keys thrown in his lap like Hall...nor should he.
    He's 18, and still unquestionably a bit overwhelmed.  I like the fact he's used in shoot outs.  It builds his confidence, and showcases his talent.  The physicality of the NHL game isn't going to wait for him to grow into it, so he's got to be brought along slowly.  Appears to me, strength is his biggest issue, and that'll be addressed with another birthday or two.  A successful NHL career is a long road.  Anybody remember Guy LaFleur's first couple years in the NHL?  How about Phil Esposito, Mark Messier, Marcel Dionne ?
    Seguin's coming along nicely.
