Report: B’s had ‘sit-down’ with Seguin during Leafs series

We already knew the Bruins wanted Tyler Seguin to “become more of a professional” if he hoped to continue his career in Boston.

And now that they’ve traded the 21-year-old to Dallas, we’re learning some context to that “become more of a professional” angle.

From CSN New England’s Joe Haggerty:

According to sources around the team, Seguin was out late in Toronto during the road trip to play the Leafs in the first round of the playoffs and the team had to hold a sit-down with the immature forward about his commitment to the team. Seguin showed up each day at the Air Canada Centre wearing the same clothes for three straight days and played badly in Games 3 and 4 of the first round against Toronto.

For some, the above may seem like piling on. Ditto for this since-deleted tweet from a Boston bar:


But like Patrick Kane in Chicago, Seguin’s off-ice activities have become part of the narrative.

Now it’s up to Seguin to silence the critics with his play, just like Kane did.
