07:29 AM ET 08.29 | Olympic camps may make for strange bedfellows, but they also offer a chance for information sharing. One of the small benefits to being here this week for Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff was the fact he got to bend the ear of Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien about Tyler Seguin, the former Bruins player who could become the Stars' No. 1 center. Ruff said he asked Julien several questions about Seguin, most geared toward what type of player he is and can be. "It was about his move back to the middle of the ice, why he went to right wing," Ruff told NHL.com. "How he handled him. Where does he think he can be best utilized? They're all questions a coach would ask another coach." Ruff wasn't specific when he was asked if any off-ice issues came up in his talks with Julien.

Nobody ever asked how to handle Phil Kessel. We just let him out there and he scores 30+ goals.

Cool.

So when the Leafs let him out of there after this season he can just c'mon down to Dallas and do the same.

So Clod was handling Tyler?

Maybe "coping with Tyler" would be more accurate.

Judging by how he manhandled Boston's D in the playoffs, Phil will match this output.

This year will be different Danny. Boston's taught Lurch how to skate.

The guy was a ghost in the play-off's..hardly ever noticed him. He was basically a perimeter player. That kinda player doesn't deserve to wear the Black and Gold.

Why does this remind me of an Aesop Fable?
