So here's a team desperate to make it through the playoffs, they're now in trouble in their cap. I know they've signed "big" players but we still managed to beat them in the playoffs and someone Gionta knocked down Chara in 1 game last season.

They drafted Seguin when they were already deep in center positions all the way to 3rd line. They're going down to the road to the last of the standings. Seguin will no doubt help them but I'm just sad to see the Canadian transition to a wing position. A franchise player like him shouldn't be transition to play other position than what he was drafted for.

I dunno, really. There's nothing saying that Seguin has to come up and be their franchise player right away while playing on a top line. There's actually no reason to be sure that Seguin will even start in the NHL this year. Often these top three picks end up playing in the bigs during their first year, but I think that has as much to do with the terrible nature of the teams which draft them as it does anything else.

Seguin will get his shot at camp like anyone else, and he'll end up slotting in the Bruins depth chart wherever his play indicates that he should. If he's playing better than, say, Krecji (spelling?) there's nothing saying that Krecji can't be moved to the wing.

Edit: I guess what I'm saying is that I think that they're a long way from going down the road to last in the standings. The only way Seguin won't be playing centre this year is if there are other players who perform better. And if that's the case... well, I don't think Boston is complaining about having a roster so deep that it's tough for the #2 overall pick to crack

If I was a Bruins fan...*THANK GOD I'M NOT*....I would not want him brought up this season,I'd wait till next season.

the word on draft day was that Seguin still needed some time developing whereas Hall could make the jump immediately...personally I'd let this kid develop a little more ....I have a sneaking suspicion that this kid might turn out to be the best player in the long run

I agree with you guys that Seguin won't see much time in the NHL this season if at all. If it's true that he's going to sign a similar type contract to Hall, with a contract slide, considering Boston's cap issues there's more reason than simply his development to keep him down in Providence.

Why can't he?

Players drafted from canadian junior can't be in the AHL until they turn 20.

Boston would be ridiculous to have Seguin waste a season in the ontario hockey league again. Maybe they can give him $250,000 and tell him to spend a year in the KHL or something.

HC Lev Poprad could sign him for about $300k-350k (the same as if he was HC Lev's first-round draft pick) if he wanted to be signed to a KHL team until Boston could clear some space.

The likelihood of Seguin doing that is about the same as the Habs putting #4 jersey in the Bell Center rafters with the name Orr on it.Not a snowballs chance in Hades!
