Seguin chooses a number that will force unfair comparisons

Bruins fans are hoping that Tyler Seguin will be the next big NHL superstar in The Hub of Hockey. Like any young player with so much hype and promise attached to his name, the fans are bound to make comparisons to those that came before him. Seguin made that connection even easier for fans as he has chosen to wear #19, the sweater last worn by Joe Thornton.

New Bruins Tyler Seguin and Nathan Horton were introduced to the media at a press conference at TD Garden this morning where they unveiled their new jerseys (#19 and #18 respectively). The pair is scheduled to throw out the first pitch at Fenway Park before tonight's Red Sox game.
