07:21 AM ET 07.08 | The Stars spent the tail end of their holiday weekend in damage control mode, thanks to Tyler Seguin's Twitter feed. While former Bruin Rich Peverley is a nice complementary player and former Bruin prospect Ryan Button might have untapped potential, the Stars basically gave up one of their best players in Loui Eriksson plus three solid prospects in Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and Joe Morrow based on the fact that Seguin could fill the No. 1 center spot for years to come. So it has to be a little concerning that social media and the internet have been filled with negative Tyler Seguin stories for the past three days. ... Seguin's image is suffering right now. Whether it's because of his behavior or because of his inability to control his phone or his Twitter account, the perception becomes reality very quickly.

He shouldn't have said it.






But the first time I heard that particular phrase was from my drill instructor in Basic Training in 1976. Didn't bother me then and sure as hell doesn't bother me now.

Nothing good can come to an athlete with a Twitter account. I have no idea why players would want one or why teams encourage it (and they do!).

Few athletes are roll models, but all athletes are examples. Whether they are good examples or bad examples they still produce teachable moments for the kids.

I think he is. And Larry Bird, Tom Brady, Bill Russell, Bob Cousy, Carl Yazstremski, Luis Tiant etc. He's disparaging all of them!

At least we have sporting icons.

Come on now, surely someone in Toronto is old enough to remember Dave Keon.

Okay...I'll give em Salming, Gilmour, Sittler, Sundin and Clark. Now, how many Cups between them did they win now?
