Basically, because he was younger and there was already a very strong established leadership core of Campbell, Lucic, Bergeron, etc... Seguin was just taken along for the ride and he was always the kid.
Seguin had the chance to learn from Krejci and Bergeron. There are much worse role models in the game. Seguins hockey IQ just wasnt`that good IMO
