Seiling wasn't a guy that was always easy to like. Kind of like his era's version of Rozsival--or a lesser James Patrick. Good player--skill wise. Not very physical. Seemed to be happiest when the limelight was on someone else. Fans did not like him. They wanted more. Rangers fans have a history of jumping all over certain players. He was one of them.[/QUOTE]
Seiling played a lot on a pairing with Neilson. One of the problems with the fans
was he tended to be a dead end with the puck in transition to offense.
He was solid defensively, but seemed to disappear when the often injured
Neilson went down.
I was at a game at MSG when the fans made signs that hung from the Blue seats.
One of the best ever, read
"THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN. ELEPHANTS CLOWNS AND SEILING"
Even the players on the bench were laughing
