Tyler Seguin: ROY Already?

By Paul Adams

The 2010-2011 NHL Rookie of the Year goes to Tyler Seguin; at least that is what many are predicting already. Drafted this year with the second overall pick, the 6'1", 172-pound former Plymouth Whaler (OHL) forward will look to crack a spot on the Bruins roster and help them contend for their first Stanley Cup since the 1971-72 season. Seguin was the unanimous 2nd pick after falling after Taylor Hall who went to the Oilers. But overall, I think he was a better fit for the Bruins. He is a two-way player, is smart with the puck and can score at will, which are just the elements the Bruins need with the decline of Marc Savard and the old age of Mark Recchi. Seguin had 48 goals and 58 assists for a total of 106 points in a mere 63 games. Also in 2009-2010, Seguin won the Red Tilson Trophy, which is the MVP of the OHL. Seguin is playing behind Savard, Patrice Bergeron, and David Krejci, but if he makes the transition to wing he can probably be a 1st or 2nd liner as a rookie because the Bruins need to score more and need more puck control. Although many of you Boston fans (myself included) can not wait for Seguin's debut, we all might just have to wait. The Bruins staff might let Seguin "learn his way through the system" and let him "get used to the pros" before thrusting him into a big role. All in all, my pick for 2010-2011 NHL Rookie of the Year is Seguin.
