Tyler Seguin’s 2 goal, 4 point performance against the Bolts last night had the Twitters all aflutter with comments that the Taylor-Tyler debate is about to begin anew.
Even Ryan Whitney got in the business, tweeting Hall:
@ryanwhitney6: @hallsy04 what year was Seguin drafted?
Hall cleverly duelled the veteran to a draw responding moments later with:
@ryanwhitney6 Thanks whits. He’d be even sicker if he got traded for you
Look at that savage back and forth fighting between a veteran and a rookie. We sure wouldn’t want to be Hall come training camp! Just think of the hijinks!
TYLER > TAYLOR?
Give us a freaking break. It’s fantastic that Tyler Seguin has gone 3-3-6 in two playoff games the Bruins have seen fit to dress him so far. That’s called a flash in the pan. Taylor Hall busted up his ankle trying to carry this awful squadron down the stretch. If he was playing in the post season he would have more than 3 games under his belt by the Conference Finals – believe that.
Let’s take a look at the two rookies seasons head to head yet again:
Mmmhmm. And let’s break down those numbers even further:
One year after the Taylor Hall – Tyler Seguin race to the 2010 Entry Draft, the Oilers clearly made the right decision taking #4 with the first overall pick. He is clearly and without a doubt the better player between the two after their first year in the league and even if Seguin turns into a second half Fernando Pisani that won’t change.
Now if he wins the Stanley Cup in his rookie season part of Hall may wish he hadn’t been such an overwhelming favourite to go #1 in the Draft. But that is another story for another day.
Bottom line: Taylor over Tyler all day long. And Jordan Eberle recently bench pressed a 1973 VW Bus in week 2 of offseason training. No big deal.
