Tyler Seguin, Plymouth Whalers (OHL)
I'm not going to sit here and act like an expert on a junior hockey player I have never seen play. All I know is that Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin are the class of this year's draft. The Copper & Blue selected Taylor Hall with the #1 pick, so we were stuck with NHL Central Scouting's #1 ranked North American skater.
According to what I have read and heard, Hall is more of a pure goal scorer, while Seguin is more of a playmaker, who makes the players around him better. I think the Bruins need more of what Taylor Hall brings, but if the Oilers take Hall, the B's are still getting a special player in Seguin.
The 6'1" 172 lb centerman finished first in the OHL with 106 points this season (48-58-106) and was awarded the Red Tilson Trophy this season as the OHL Most Outstanding Player.
