Just days after the announcement of Brad Marchand's contract extension, Tyler Seguin has stated that the Bruins and him are talking about a contract extension. According to Seguin:
"There's been discussions...It's looking good, and I'm looking forward to hopefully playing in Boston for many years. I want to stay here and start a life here. That's what I'm looking for."As i have previously stated in my Brad Marchand blog, earlier this off season Seguin's predecessor in the 2010 draft, Taylor Hall received a 7 year, $6 mil per season extension and another 2010 draftee, Jeff Skinner, received a 6 year, $5.75 mil per season.
With those two stars receiving those types of contracts, expect Seguin to also receive an extension in that ballpark. This would be an excellent move to wrap Seguin up long term. With the results he gave the Bruins last year (29 goals, 38 assists, 67 total points) it would be an insult if Seguin doesn't acquire his pay day. As many remember we got Seguin from trading Phil Kessel, and so far Seguin has proved that he has the potential to be one of the next NHL superstars.
