“Tyler Seguin makes things happen every time he is on the ice and he makes his teammates better. He’s a skilled forward. He’s a guy that’s obviously a top-line forward with all kinds of puck skills and playmaking abilities. … He’s an elusive guy in traffic, avoiding checks with the puck.”
Comparison: Steve Yzerman
….Seguin is easily my favorite player in the draft and one that I will root for, seemingly in Boston. He has the makings of a star, which doesn’t matter, but he looks to be one. There probably isn’t a better prospect than him for the Rangers but there isn’t a chance in hell he gets to Broadway right now.
I loved him before, but seeing that his favorite cartoon character is Bart Simpson, I mean, I would give anything for him to be on the Rangers. He doesn’t even list his favorite player as Sidney Crosby as so many do, he picks Henrik Zetterberg. Is he better than Taylor Hall, that’s debateable. Hall is ranked ahead of him almost anywhere else, but they are so close.
