The way 19-year old Tyler Seguin has started this season -- he's tied with Brad Marchand for the team lead with 4 points -- begs the question of whether young stars like him have an advantage against the so-called "Stanley Cup Hangover" that's seemed to affect some of his older teammates.
Seguin said he doesn't really know the answer, since this past summer was his first official NHL offseason. So, he busted out a good one-liner instead.
I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
