Based on the local media coverage and the loud chorus of boos that greeted him in his return on Tuesday night, it seems that Tyler Seguin is not a popular man in Boston at the moment.
There is of course one possible exception, as spotted by the Stars broadcast.
Ah yes, the split jersey. A classic.
After spending the first three years of his career in Boston, the team traded Seguin this past offseason to the Dallas Stars in the deal that sent Loui Eriksson to the Bruins. In the aftermath of that deal there have been numerous stories coming out of Boston about Seguin's off-ice behavior. That, combined with his poor numbers in last year's playoff run seems to have made him quite the unpopular player in his first return.
And to think it wasn't that long ago that fans in Boston were chanting "Thank You, Kessel" after Seguin scored a goal against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The Bruins drafted Seguin with the No. 2 overall pick in 2010 after acquiring that pick from the Maple Leafs in the Phil Kessel trade.
