Seguin back in action tonight, won’t talk about sleeping in

Boston coach Claude Julien says Tyler Seguin will be in the lineup tonight when the Bruins host the Panthers. That’s the good news for the 19-year-old.

The bad news for Seguin is that the Boston media still wants to hear more about Seguin’s inability to wake up for breakfast and a team meeting in Winnipeg. As you might expect, Seguin and the Bruins aren’t too thrilled with that and, as Kevin Paul Dupont of the Boston Globe reports, refused to talk about it after practice today.

Not only would Seguin not discuss his poor handling of a snooze button but Bruins PR reps shot down further attempts to ask about it. At least they’re on top of all the important story lines in Boston.

This is what happens when a team wins too often — covering all that success leads to boredom. You have to like the chances we’ll see Seguin blow up for a monster game at home against Florida tonight. Silencing the critics never gets old.

    This is why I have my wife wake me up every morning…shes always on the local time…

    Looking forward to watching the B’s tonight to see if they can put that horrible one game losing streak behind them. Heh…

    Big deal about nothing. People screw up. That’s life. A few reporters want to go all nuts over this because they’re Hab fans.

    Yeah, this losing streak is a bitch. Hey Columbus, we feel your pain.

    I can understand why the B’s want to turn the page on this, but with success comes greater scrutiny. Hey, we’re all uber fans now. That’s a double-edged sword. You’re in showbiz kid, get used to it. It’s when nobody gives a damn that you start to worry.

    After we get to see him tonight in the flesh at the TD Garden, this will have played itself out. (unless he screws up again) I do expect a monster game.

      Yep. It’s because the media always wants to tear down the successful in an attempt to make somebody pay for their own lives sucking.

    Do you think for Seguin’s next Dunkin Donuts ad, they may want to bring back the ‘time to make the donuts’ commercial. This time it will feature Seguin being awoken by the alarm clock … and there are so many ways to take it from there. I’m not sure the B’s brass would be laughing though.

    This wouldn’t be a big deal if he hadn’t missed so many meetings already. Claude doesn’t want the kid to become a prima donna. Great move by a coach whom I gaining more respect for by the day.

      Cluade has been taking much better control of the team lately. Guess thats what winning a cup can do for you.

        Maybe Terry Francona should have called Claude last September. ‘So Claude, what should I do if my players are drinking beer and eating chicken during the game?’ I’m pretty sure Claude would tell him to grab and twist real hard, starting with fat ass Beckett.
