The Taylor versus Tyler debate is in the books. With Taylor Hall going first overall to the Edmonton Oilers, the Boston Bruins selected Tyler Seguin with the second pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.
Seguin, 18, who played for the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, was tied with Hall for the league lead in scoring. Seguin had 48 goals and 58 assists for 106 points, and was ranked as the number one prospect by Central Scouting.
It has been widely debated over the past year about which of the two players would go No. 1. On Friday,
“I don’t think it matters who goes first overall,” Seguin told ESPN.com. “I’m just excited to be here and to be going to Boston. I’m sure the rivalry will continue if we’re both in the NHL next year, but we both respect each other. We’re good buddies, and that isn’t going to change.”
There is also speculation that the Bruins could make a move since adding Seguin gives the team another center. The Bruins already have the likes of Marc Savard, David Krejci and Patrice Bergeron on their roster as centers.
