His fate remains undecided as the playoffs approach, with head coach Claude Julien still unsure about his final roster going into the postseason.
Seguin has spent most of the season battling for playing time, and currently finds himself centering the fourth line. Some fans have expressed the opinion that the rookie forward would have better success if he got more playing time, but with the Bruins roster jam-packed with talent, this might not be feasible come playoff time.
The rookie clearly has skill, as was expected from such a high draft pick, but his job so far this season has been proving himself to his coaches and teammates. Sitting out during the playoffs might just help him do that.
Even if he doesn't play, Seguin is still an excellent utility player to keep around in case of an injury. Although he might not be satisfied with this role, he would still be helping the team win in some way.
