Eriksson is absolutely the better player right now, but I agree that Boston got fleeced due to the huge age gap. Seguin put up 29 goals at age 20 and has tremendous upside. He's going to be a 1C for a very long time. I'm surprised Boston soured on the guy so quickly.
He's a 21yr old who's been to the finals twice and won the Cup already. Motivation issues.
