Round 1 – 2nd overall
Boston Bruins – Tyler Seguin
6′ 1″, 172 lbs – Center, Plymouth (OHL)
With the Oilers not surprising anyone, the Bruins settle for what many considered the best player in the draft anyways. What’s interesting is how the Bruins are already stacked at the center position and definitely preferred to have had Hall.
There were some last minute calls being fielded at the Bruins table, however they ended taking Seguin in the end.
There’s some concern over how Seguin went invisible once the the playoffs started while Hall shined, but he’s such a dynamic and well-rounded player that there’s no reason he won’t end up being the better player of the two.
Seguin also has a leaders mentality and the makeup to be a great, respectable young player in the NHL.
