What you're looking for is consistency and Seguin for the most part was pretty consistent defensively all year.

Probably a big reason for the much lower +/- is because the Bruins offense started to go south once Horton and Peverely went on the shelf.
Not to mention Seguin was easily our best forward in the playoffs.
