@Guy - I think the resurgence of Seguin bashing is - like many have mentioned here - a mechanism to justify the trade in the first place.
In response to TheGuyWithDaThing's comment:
He clearly wasn't taught humility growing up.
Seriously, though.....do we have to continue on with the Seguin bashing? It's as though some on here are recently-hearbroken ex-boyfriends who feel the need to bash the girl they were with in order to make themselves feel better. It's been the same thing with Thornton and Kessel.
You don't have to root for them at all. But stop trying to convince yourselves that these guys are bad players and that they were what held the Bruins back from winning the Cup every year.
We get it. The kid is a d***. It's just a weird coping mechanism. He's not on the team anymore.
Seguin is a good hockey player.
I was shocked by the interview, I had not seen that side of him before.
I had heard him say dumb things prior to this, but not arrogant as he was.
I don't wish him ill will and hope he shines in Dallas (just not against us).
Whatever he did or didn't do off the ice can really only be substatiated by Seguin & management. We hear rumours and perhaps witness accounts of specific instances but we really don't know the extent of what happened like PC, etc.
I believe management needed to address the cap issues first(Peverly) and Seguin was offered in the package of players because a) he is a great player and b) it was a way to address the off-ice stuff. I haven't seen Behind the Bruins(?) where they talked about Seguin but I don't think he was the principle part of the deal, was he?
@BadHab - I only saw Part 2 of the interview...but was it really that shocking? You mentioned that he said something about 'my' line...it is not out of the ordinary for a player to mean 'back on my(regular) line'. That might be what he meant by that.
His quote about how the Bruins were 'one of the best in the league - at least when I was there' could be construed as either he doesn't believe they are one of the best now (and it could be agrued by many that he is right) and that when he was there he believed the Bruins were one of the best...it doesn't necessarily mean it is because he is not there that we've slipped from the top ranks. I am not sure I made my case there, but there you go.
