Insert facepalm gif here

Call me the next time Seguin hits 90+ points and has 4 consecutive PPG seasons if you want to be taken seriously. Maybe to Boston, this young center with great potential may have more VALUE, but better? Give me a break.

You are right, teams aren't going to assume anything and they would both keep their guys.
No he didn't prove that he can out-score Getzlaf in a good year. He proved that he could outscore him by a bit in his worst year since his rookie season.....actually he had a better PPG in his rookie year, so Seguin proved that he can outscore Getzlaf in his worst possible year.

Prior to that Getzlaf was top 9 in the league in PPG. We're not sure what happened but clearly something was off.

Ryan? I'll give it to you on that one that Seguin will probably end up being a better point producer than Ryan, but Ryan's goal scoring is invaluable. There's only one other player in the league that has scored 30 or more goals every year since entering the league. You don't give up that kind of consistency for assumed value.
