    Jack Edwards interview with Seguin

    One question threw me back, Edwards asked Seguin if there were any signs of the trade coming.  So seguins says, "looking back at it" the demotion to the 3rd line.  Tyler said he misinterpretted it.  Tyler said that he thought the message was they wanted him to be an "energy type of player" on the 3rd line, that management wanted him to play that role.  And that he now realizes that the message was that it was a message about his lack of scoring production.

    What?

    This wasn't made crystal to him at the time?

    As if it weren't obvious enough?

    I don't recall him giving an interview answer as stupid as that while a Bruin.

    Re: Jack Edwards interview with Seguin

    I've never turned 180 on a player like I just have Seguin.

    All because of this interview.

    The killer comment (there were a few) for me was when he was asked which Bruin he thought was most skilled.  He said Bergeron because blah blah blah.  Then he said it was a pleasure to be on the ice with him when he scored the OT goal vs. Toronto "when I was returned to MY line".  Really?  Not Bergeron's line?

    The Bruins must have controlled his contact with the media a lot, I had no idea he was like that.  I thought he was really down to earth.

    Becuase he scored in the shootout ? or becuase he was on the ice when Benn scored ?

    What else did Tyler do ? He had 2 shots all night...

    I thought of the two, Stanley's formerly known as Flying Mosquito now known as The Lemon was the more active.

    Wow.  

    Postgame Tyler says "he had a lot of respect for the Bruins, they were one of the best in the league, at least when I was there."

    The ego on this kid.

    You didn't notice his giant ego until he was traded?  I was wondering if it was going to be a problem on the day he was drafted when he talked about the matching tattoos that he and his father had just gotten.  They say SEGUIN down the backs of their upper arms.

    Didn't really pay attention to his giant Ego too busy watching him being the top scorer.maybe they could have drafted one with no ego who can't score for crap. The conventional all heart no talent type player

    I saw an interview about that, Seguin said he didn't want to do it, but that his father insisted.

    It was another "good boy" thing, doing what his father wanted even tho he didn't want it.

    Now he's the illustrated man.

    You are intentionally missing the point.

    And then making an arguement about that.

    Try talking TO people rather than AT people sometime.

     

    So you are saying a player's ego and/or mental state NEVER have an affect on his game or team mates?



    Bad hab everyone has baggage and if you dig deep enough you will find what you want to look for. Ideally yes yiywant a player to have all of his bedside manners sign every autograph etc but its the real world whats important is whst they do on the ice not what they say or don't say and magnifying everything they do.really I find that riduculous.  same thing with kess when he got traded watch if they ever trade marchand oh good he's such a jerk who cares they're the big reason why we won a cup .

    I have over 70 employees and some of them are very hard to deal with some around me say why I put up with them because they bring sometbing to the business their attitudes while not exemplary are predominated by their work performances and thats what matters.

    What about when their performance AND bad attitude are the problem. Remember the playoffs??

    Seguin was good to score the pretty goals and in shootouts, but he rarely played big or got the big goals when it mattered most.

    How can you relate that to his attitude was marchand attitude also responsible for his play in tgr finals. Are we to say that those who do great in the playoffs is due to having great attitudes if so kessel is one perfect human being

    Folks, don't forget that there are two parts to a trade.  The trade was as much about the expectation that Eriksson would be a perfect fit under Julien (and at a lower cap hit), the opportunity to send Peverley away, and a decent enough load of prospects that you figure it more likely than not one makes it, as it was any of the negatives associated with Seguin.

    Sure.  But how much is too much?

    Didn't you ever fire someone because of attitude?

    And who determines whether the attitude is too much or not?

    The answer is the management., if it's too much for them, it's too much.

     

    And this thread isn't about that.  For whatever reason I was led to believe this kid was Ozzie and Harriet clean.  I even was thinking the kid might be a good team captain because of all the maturity stuff I heard about.

    Never mind the on ice stuff, this was the media impression I got.  I heard about him buying the used range rover for his first car.

    Then the missed team meeting came out and he got benched for that - and I was shocked by the story.  Then they made it sound like he just forgot to set his alarm clock.  Then bit by bit more and more came out.

    This suggests to me that the Bruins spent a fair amount of time controlling the media damage.

    I don't care about any of this.

    I don't regret the trade.  My only problem with the loss last night, other than Chara's brain cramp, is having to listen to all of the crap about Taylor Sequins for another three weeks or so.

    It was a perfect ending, really - he helped them win a skills competition, not a hockey game.  Whatever.

    Yes I know with the Red Sox being done for the season, Celtics in rebuild and the Patsies in a bye week some Globe writers will make usless observations of the Bruins.

    "Folks, don't forget that there are two parts to a trade.  The trade was as much about the expectation that Eriksson would be a perfect fit under Julien (and at a lower cap hit), the opportunity to send Peverley away, and a decent enough load of prospects that you figure it more likely than not one makes it, as it was any of the negatives associated with Seguin."

     

    This has been discussed with the Shab mega-troll Doc. She ignores all that makes sense.

    I guess the question is what is the mgmt threshold  to employee caused nuisances. Would I fire somone soley on his attitude - probably not . While I'm writing this I'm think ing of a salesman of mine and truly I can't stand him.and I just recently hired him but he's got the sales  skills and if he brings home the bacon or will be bringi. Home the bacon as they say then firing him is making me a disfavor 

    Bad Hab everything is a business as a kid I used to accept all what the bruins did never really scrutinized it today though its a business for the owners the players and we the fans who are in actual fact the customers.
