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.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
