Rumors swirled earlier this week that the Bruins were looking to trade 21-year-old Tyler Seguin, with GM Peter Chiarelli even admitting that he listened to numerous calls on that front.

Well, apparently nothing has been worked out there as of yet, and, at this point, Seguin will be on the team for the 2013-2014 season.
The concerns haven't gone away though. In fact, Chiarelli called out Seguin, saying that the right wing has "got to become more of a professional."

The UNO Sports Tonight guys took up the issue, and didn't their amusement at the ridiculousness of the situation.
The Boston Herald's Steve Buckley was particularly entertained.

"How can you not love the way this is playing out," Buckley said. "It's one thing for for Felger to be cackling about it or for me to be writing about it, but when the big boss says you've got to grow up big boy, that's powerful stuff."
Buckley did have one caveat though.

"If [Seguin] starts lighting up the lamp and scores a ton of goals early in [this next] season, will his off the ice professionalism be an issue?"

Even on that point though, Gary Tanguay had a counter, stating that a rise in production would be directly tied to Seguin's off-the-ice growth.

"If he starts playing well and lighting up the lamp, that means he's cut down some of the off ice stuff."
