    Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?

    I divide it up a little differently, BadHab.  I follow Bobby Hull's lead.  There's Orr.
     
    Then the All-Timers in basically this order: Wayne, Mario, Gordie, Rocket, Bobby Hull, Messier, Bourque, Hasek (yep), Harvey, Bossy.

    Then the great including Yzerman, Neely, Kurri, Lafontaine, Trottier, Lafleur, Robinson, Potvin...etc.

    In Response to Re: Who does Seguin remind you of?:
    You all know that I have been Tyler Seguin's staunchest advocate since day one. I'm glad to see that he is winning everyone over - like I knew he would. Tyler Seguin will be Tyler Seguin! - and I repeat, the face of the Bruins in the 21st Century. He will be thought of in the same breath as Robert Gordon Orr, when it comes to the Boston Bruins.
    Posted by Wheatskins


    First of all, I was rooting for the Bruins to draft Seguin before Hall, so he didn't "win me over."

    And secondly, please, for God's sake, don't compare him to Bobby Orr. Even Seguin's mother wouldn't do that.

    To me when he speeds down the wing he reminds me of Kessel.  When he curls and makes those cross ice passes he reminds me of Savy.  When lets a snipe go at mid stride he reminds me of a Modano.  Never really seen his slapper but it would be nice if he could let it rip like a Stamkos.

    He has all the tools, how far he will take it depends on what he has upstairs.

    In response to BadHabitude's comment:


    I'm reminded of Lance Armstrong when they asked if he were going to be the next Greg Lemond and his answer was that no one was going to compare him to anyone and that everyone would be compared to him.

    Seguin is way too modest to say that about himself, and he won't be in that upper echelon of the very greatest, but I believe he'll be in that "second tier" of greats and I put Yzerman and Messier in that category.

    I don't think there is a mold that fits Seguin.  He has 3 assets that are gems, his speed, his hockey sense to find those seams in receiving and giving passes, and the quick shot.

    His rate of improvement is phenominal.

    He is going to be a special one in a category of his own.

    Oh yah, so my answer is that he reminds me of no one, maybe several aspects of several players.

    Lol. This necrothread has some fun stuff from when we all loved Seguin. I think the Yzerman comparison remains the closest, though he is very much his own unique player. And like Stevie, he seems like he'll take a long time to get "it" - Yzerman was over 30 before he tasted post season success.

    He reminds me of 700 + goal scorer Mike Gartner. Both shoot right, each equipped with blazing speed providing them with the ability to beat defenders to the outside. I think Gartner was the more graceful skater with the longer strides instead of Seguin's quicker, shorter strokes. Like Seguin, I don't recall Gartner as a particularly rugged player. His thing seemed to be to rocket down the right wing, circle the opponent's goal, emerge around the left side of the ice, looking for someone to pass to. We often used to see Seguin attempt several one-on-mutiples. Don't remember if Gartner used to give that a go sometimes.

    Thank God I didn't have to re-read that entire thread.

    Once I saw it was marco that bumped it up to say 'See? You once said he was a good hockey player!'...I skipped to the last page.

    What he doesn't realize is that even though his original thoughts on Tyler will never change, the world turns and things happen - which makes others sometimes change their opinion of certain people or events. Or both.

    This is the case of Seguin.

    I think what he really doesn't realize is that most people on here think Tyler is a good player. That doesn't mean he is a good fit for the Bruins or that the trade was bad. For all his scoring, the Stars are worse even with both him and Spezza.

    A good fit? Are the bruins in a different world then the other teams cuz they would all take him in a sec. Horrible loss ..with all loui def play and the other stiffs we got in return we got eliminated last year in second rd and this yesr we are strugglingto make the playofds. Sure turned out great for the bruins.  Btw only reason we are still in it is because of spoin pastr.

    Tyler may be doing well now but when we really needed him he wasn't there. Other decent hockey players will come along.

    All right but the same can be said for march krejci and the whole team practically last year so trade them all. Guy was way too young to give up on him

    As bhab said he's a great player in the likes of a messier according to him ( That's a stretch though)

    Both he and Kessel will be interesting players to keep tabs on.

    Last year I thought there was no hope for Ovie, for him the ice was tilted 45 toward the offensive zone.

    Now look at him, he learned about this 'backchecking' thing and same number of goals, but his team is in the playoffs.  And if he keeps that up, the Caps could go deep.

    Kessy - I don't think he'll ever get it.  This season could be the beginning of the end for him.  He has another issue in addition to the lack of effort and lack of backchecking - and that's his fitness level.  That's a big problem, he is no where near as fit as he should be.

    Segsy - here is what it is with him, lack of grit and determination.  That's why he's a no show at critical times and why he shies away from contact.

    Typically what I've seen with people is that if you have the sissy factor at age 18, you will have it forever, but sometimes people get more aggressive as they get older.  If that happens with Seguin then you are looking at a dominant player, but until then just another one of those guys scoring a lot against non-playoff teams or when it doesn't matter.
