Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli made it known this weekend that he was fielding calls from teams interested in trading for Tyler Seguin.

The 21-year old right wing, who was drafted with the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, had a down year in the lockout-shortened 2013 season after signing a six-year contract extension that carries and average cap hit of $5.75 million in the fall. But the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft came and went without any trade of Seguin.

Chiarelli came out and said Seguin needs to be more of a professional. On Sports Sunday, Michael Felger and Bob Beers discussed the possible trade of Seguin and how bright his future could be in the NHL. Beers said Seguin needs to get some motivation from the trade rumors and take the chance to prove himself in Boston next season.

"If you're going to keep him, next year is the year he has to show it," Bob Beers said.
