Seguin Is Putting Holes In The Swiss League
As the NHL Lockout DRAGS ON and ON and ON, Bruins fans have to follow their favorite players wearing colors of teams other than the Black & Gold.
Which has been extremely PAINFUL…..
For Tyler Seguin rather than starting his third season in the NHL, he played for EHC Biel-Bienne of the Swiss League.
He not only played in the league, he DOMINATED. He is making the Swiss League looking like what else…..SWISS CHEESE!
In just 29 games, “The Kid” posted EYE-POPPING numbers with 25 goals and 15 assists. And most of Seguin’s goals were of the highlight film variety.
Here are some of Seguin’s SENSATIONAL Scores In The Swiss League:

Play By Play Translation: Tyler Seguin Makes The Goalie Look Like A Grilled Cheese Made With Swiss
Play By Play Translation: Really THREE Goals? Who Invited This Seguin Guy?
Play By Play Translation: FOUR Goals….Ok We Are A Peaceful People, But This Is Getting RIDICULOUS!
Great to see Tyler Seguin DEVOUR the competition in Switzerland, but Bruins fans are getting ROBBED seeing the NHL’s next superstar grow into a scoring JUGGERNAUT.
ENOUGH OF THE GREED….END THE F’N LOCKOUT!
