Tyler Seguin No. 1 Prospect

The NHL’s Central Scouting has released it’s final rankings for the 2010 Draft Class and a mild surprise has Plymouth center Tyler Seguin jumping over Taylor Hall for the number one spot. Other players jumping up were Prince George right wing Brett Connolly, who takes the third spot, and Kingston defenseman Erik Gudbranson. Cam Fowler, originally the highest ranked d-man at no. 3 fell to the 6th spot.

Folks who don’t realize the significance of these rankings to the Boston Bruins just haven’t been paying attention. Holders of Toronto’s 1st round pick in the 2010 (and 2011 for that matter) NHL Draft thanks to the Phil Kessel trade, they stand a monumental chance of getting a true superstar, impact forward when the draft is held in late June in L.A. The Leafs, playing well of late, are threatening to jump out of that 2nd worst spot in the league, hurting the B’s chances of getting either Hall or Seguin, both of whom, many think, will be ready to jump into the NHL next season and have an immediate impact.

So, yes, that’s drool you see on the chins of Boston’s upper management these days and it’s not just the usual, oblivious, slack-jawed variety either. This time it’s hunger.

The Draft Lottery, by the way, will be broadcast live on Versus next Tuesday, April 13th at 8 p.m. eastern. It will certainly be a day that will live in infamy or glory in the minds of all Boston Bruins fans as, without exaggeration, the very future of the franchise might well be decided that day.
