08:23 AM ET 12.03 | Forgive Bruins fans for wondering what they're missing this locked-out season with Tyler Seguin. The 20-year-old Seguin potted a jaw-dropping 20 goals in his first 20 games skating for EHC Biel in the Swiss-A League, and overall has 32 points and 20 penalty minutes in 21 games for Biel. He's adapted nicely to the speedy European League, and leads all NHL players in the Swiss League with his 20 goals. ... [One could] make the argument that Seguin has been the best, most valuable NHL player while in Europe over the last few months during the lockout. Seguin struggled slightly coming out of the gate when he first arrived in October, but he steadily improved before Blackhawks refugee Patrick Kane arrived to form a dynamic scoring duo with the Bruins prodigy.

I'm sorry Danny. Leaf fans keep telling me it was the trade of the century for To***to.

If only this century was coming to a close as opposed to just coming into fruition (ok so we're 12 years in, but you get the point).

Speaking of Kessel, has he dropped the baby weight yet?

Oh and Seguin what he is doing in Switzerland, kudos to him, even if the talent pool in the Swiss league is a little shallow.

It's all because of his mentor Cabby, I mean Patty Kane...

Seguins ahead of Kessel after 2 years in the show....he's more well rounded....and Kessel may be the streakiest scorer in the entire league..and when he's not scoring he's not doing anything on the ice.

For what it's worth, he has led the Leafs in scoring all three years...

Ugh do we have to? It's been SOOOO long since the last time a Kessel convo got started in here...

I'd rather talk about actual players than the owners, Napoleon and the NHL Pathetic Assoc...
