Way to early to give up on a second overall pick who is still growing. It took Seguin a good year to get used to Junior hockey. It was projected at the draft by many scouts it would take him a while to make a full transition to NHL hockey. Even if he doesn't fully pan out he's still a better scorer than anyone the Bruins currently have.

Take him out of the equation and the B's are going to have some serious scoring trouble.
What "leap" are we talking about?
Year two age 19-20, 29g and 67pts, year 3 16gs 32pts all in a defensive system who JUST turned 21. So this "leap" is what? 50goals and 125pts in a season before he turns 22? If he only gets 49g and 99pts in his next season does that mean he failed to reach his potential? Actually very curious.
