Tyler Seguin C DAL Oct 25 '78
Tyler Seguin is slated to quarterback Boston's first-line power play to open the season, according to coach Claude Julien.
He will join Nathan Horton, Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Zdeno Chara on the team's number one unit. "You've got two big bodies and one that's a great shooter in the slot in Horton," said Julien. "The other good is a good big body in [Lucic]. As you know the quarterback there is probably [Seguin], he's got the skill and the one-timer. We thought that five-man unit would be give us a pretty decent power play. We think we've got some personnel in some places this year that we think will give us more." The Bruins were ranked 15th with the man advantage last season, but adding Seguin to the top unit could develop more scoring chances.
