So Apparently The Bruins Had To Basically Arrest Seguin To Keep Him From Drinking During The Playoffs
(Herald) – This trade might not be popular among all Bruins fans, who envisioned Seguin as a future superstar. But he might go down as a player who squandered his great gifts. Multiple sources said the 21-year-old Seguin crossed the line this season with reckless partying. It apparently got so bad that during the playoffs, the Bruins ordered Seguin to live in a hotel, where a guard was hired to make sure he stayed in his room. But Chiarelli repeatedly defended Seguin, calling him “a good kid and a terrific player” and “a tremendous package of speed and skill.”
(CSNNE) – According to sources around the team, Seguin was out late in Toronto during the road trip to play the Leafs in the first round of the playoffs and the team had to hold a sit-down with the immature forward about his commitment to the team. Seguin showed up each day at the Air Canada Centre wearing the same clothes for three straight days and played badly in Games 3 and 4 of the first round against Toronto.
I know yesterday I said the trade would be a little less surprising once some stories started leaking but this is over the top. As if it came from the One Eyed Bandit himself. Look if you want to tell me Seguin drank a bit too much, fine. I believe you. Tell me he was too interested in chasing skirt? Totally believe you. But I find it extremely hard to believe that he was on a 2 month bender, rubbing it in everyone’s face by showing up in the same clothes and no vets on that team could do a thing about it. I mean locking a person in a hotel room so he can’t drink? That’s fucking rehab. A team who’s made a cup run before and knows what it takes wouldn’t continue to put someone this far gone on the ice. Especially when he wasn’t even producing. That’s why I don’t believe it.
